    So, the draft is done, all our players are up on Yahoo. And the season starts in about 24 hours! Pretty exciting stuff. Welcome (back) to the new fantasy league, I will be returning as the commissioner. It's a great privilege. Please read the following very carefully.

    A few VERY IMPORTANT announcements;

    • I have updated Yahoo league page with all the players we drafted over the weekend. BUT they are all on the bench (default setting). You must log on before game starts tomorrow and plug them into starting roles or they will not yield you any points.
    • Check your team and compare with the draft board, ASAP. I may have made a mistake or two while transferring them over to the league. It is your responsibility to let me know if I have made a mistake before tomorrow so I can correct it before someone else snags your original player.
    • We have established a Telegram chat group for trash talk and updates. @Red Devil is the guy who is managing the group. If you'd like to be a part of that, please make an account on Telegram (if you haven't already) and send him your @username, he'll put you in.
    • As per my previous request, we have chosen a Game of Thrones theme for our league this year, please join the fun and select a name/logo accordingly. Even if you don't watch the show, I guarantee, you'll find a name that you will like on Google. (yes, I know I still have to change my own name)

    I will post the draft grades here as soon as Yahoo analyses them. In the meantime here's a look at the week 1 match-ups. (see all the zeroes with your names? that shows you have no starters set)

    For some reason all the free agents are locked. Let me know if you need to add someone before week 1.

    And we have a Pick'Em tournament set up, you have to pick who's gonna win out of any matchup, every week. This is optional.

    Season opener is at 8:30pm (EST). Carolina travelling to Denver to avenge the Superbowl embarrassment, while the Denver hoping their defense helps their new QB get acclimated fast.

    Football is back!

    "Looking at the entire season, they have the least challenging schedule. Corresponding with the easiest overall schedule, zarrar's Team also has the league's easiest first four games and softest last four games of the season"

    @PakistanZindabad! no wonder you are predicted to win

    Sign in. Go on My Team tab, click the position name (in circle) before the player's name, select where you want that particular player to go to (ie bench, start, etc). That should set it. But do a refresh and make sure it saved.

    Two trades are up for review.

    1) Yeldon for Riddick
    2) Ebron+Lockett for Diggs

    Let me know if you think either of them is worth a veto.

    Packers in red hot form. Although I still worry about that secondary and especially Gunter who gets torched easily all the time.

    Been doing pretty well. How do you feel about the cowboys matchup? It's going to be tough for you guys but Rodgers is in some of the best form of his life.

    I think it'll be important for the rush defense to be on the top of their game. Stop Zeke and force Dak to air it more. He's done well, but is still a rookie and if we can limit that major weapon of theirs, he might just falter under pressure.

    The OL have done a great job at giving Rodgers enough time to find the right option and the most important thing will be for everyone to stay healthy. Cobb just back from another injury so hopefully he can stay healthy now. Worried about Jordy Nelson. Didn't look good.

    Overall I think we definitely got more than a fair shot despite what happened earlier in the season at Lambeau.

    packers OL is shaky to me...I think a lot of it is down to a rod's mobility. Injuries are a concern but I don't know if jordy is make or break for them tbh the way Rodgers is playing. I'd be more worried about stopping that running game.

    Would prefer having Jordy if he's available. Rodgers' fav target and always reliable, but yeah. Ty Montgomery more important right now. Need to have some sort of a running game and the guy has been really good.

    If we can't stop their running game it'll be very complicated. Will keep Green Bay limited to only a few series and take time off.

    Atlanta's offense is just too good.

    And Osweiler is the biggest fraud ever. Guy can't even throw two yards passes accurately lmao

    I'd like to take part next season if there's one, although like this time not sure if I'll be available on here.

    Who won this season?
