GWJFFL 2019: Registration

This thread is specifically to signup for, and discussion about, the GWJFFL, the official fantasy football league of Gamers with Jobs.

Registration is on a first come, first serve basis, with priority given to returning owners. Teams who sign up after all positions are filled will be added to a waiting list to be contacted should a slot become available. The waiting list carries over from year to year so signing up as an alternate for this season reserves your position until you forfeit it.

Changes for 2019:

  • Fleaflicker is out. Sleeper is in! The new hotness in free fantasy football league services is Sleeper. Fleaflicker's dreary UI has not kept up over the years, and my hope is that moving to Sleeper will reignite some love of the game.

    In particular, I am hoping that everyone finds the draft experience to be much better than Fleaflicker's room, and that the league site's social features will encourage more communication and interaction. Over the course of the season, we'll see what kind of things we can do with the site's tools to spruce up the experience.

  • Last year's money league was the Chase for the Kolb. This year, it's...

    the Tebow Crusade:

  • As I had planned last year but did not get into the rules in time, the money payouts for the pay league will be adjusted to go entirely to the top 3 finishers, minus some money used for the grand prize.

    League Champion: $150 and the Tebow
    League Runner-Up: $75
    3rd Place: $50

  • Per discussion in the previous thread, defensive scoring will be adjusted to match Sleeper's default values, except without the minus-points. Therefore:

    10 points for shutout
    7 points for yielding 1-6 points
    4 points for yielding 7-13 points
    1 point for yielding 14-20 points

  • The Gonzo League shall return, and the floor is now open for rule modification proposals, as well as any other ideas as to how to tweak the league.

Rules:

While the structure and rules of the GWJFFL are based on the (now defunct) World Championship of Online Fantasy Football, the GWJFFL is a dynamic league and subject to evolution. Please review the official GWJFFL rules to ensure you are familiar with them. (Note: still need to make some edits to this document, coming soon)

Leagues:

GWJFFL offers leagues in three different formats: redraft, dynasty, and a unique chaotic experience.

Redraft format includes both a single "money league" that charges an entry fee, as well as system of free leagues, which will number based on the number of players requesting entrance. Any GWJ site member is eligible to join.

  • GWJFFL The Tebow Crusade ("money league")
  • GWJFFL Redraft (one or more leagues dependent on player count)
  • GWJFFL Dynasty
  • GWJFFL Gonzo

Registration:

In order to register, reply to this post, stating your desire to play, and in which leagues you are interested in playing.

Your post should roughly adhere to the following format:

Placement in the leagues will be on a first-come, first-serve basis, with priority given to returning players.

Registration will close at 23:59 PDT on Thursday, 08/29, or as soon as we are able to fill all available leagues. If we can fill the leagues fast enough, ukick can have his earlier drafts.

(I'll fill in empty spots in any of the other league(s), if necessary, but I really don't study redraft rankings and whatnot anymore.)

I'm out. I've been reducing my intake of the NFL last couple years and fantasy needs to come next. Good luck all.

At this point, it's tradition, right?

In case it wasn't clear from the picture, let it be known that The Tebow has fully stitched numbers and lettering. No cheap screen print this time. When you throw a bullsh*t playoff game winning TD against blown coverage and kneel to glorify the Lord, bystanders will know you're the real deal with your tackle twill numbers and name plate.

Not working, but I sent a friend request to "garion333". You can find me as "Emmes" with a familiar looking profile picture for anyone in the league, feel free to send invites.

Nubs!

Didn't expect this to be our next video game together but I'll take it!

We need all the fresh blood we can get in here.

BTW, I'm already liking the site choice. I'm using the app to run a slow draft league for my co-workers, the league is on ESPN, but this is the only site/app that allows you to run slow drafts so flawlessly.

I'm sure it'll grow on me, but loading up Sleeper the first time made me have the same sense of disorientation I have with, say, jumping into a new flight simulator for the first time.

If everyone else returns, I think nubs can take my friend's (quackattack) dynasty team. He is laid up right now from a surgery he had today and his first baby is due this fall so I'm guessing he'd rather cut back on fantasy football... he'll probably do it if we need him though.

Thanks y'all for the warm welcome! Happy to play fantasy if there's a spot but I understand if the leagues get full first.

Took a break last year as there wasn't enough for a redraft, but I'll throw my hat into the money, and if it happens, a redraft.

Took some time off, but would like to play again!
