    Ok, while some may think this is late, this is actually right on time! No one wants to sit on a team that can't play for a full month. Who also wants to draft a player that gets hurt in the preseason (I picked Vick #1 overall one year (draft was Aug 1st), just to have him get a broken leg).

    So this year we are running our Fantasy League #1 through NFL.com. Yes there are a MILLION of sites that can host a FF league. I'm picking NFL.com. It's easy, I can access it via my NFL mobile app.

    So now that we are past what site we're using, let's get to the leagues.

    If you want to join go to http://fantasy.nfl.com/registration/privateleaguejoin
    There are 9 spots open right now... Open to everyone including Staff.


    Put this info in:
    League ID: 2544658
    League Password: DaBears2014


    **UPDATE**

    Since the NFL.com league is full I have started a CBS Sports league. They will be scored the same!!

    Here is how to join this league:
    http://dabearscom.football.cbssports.com/
    Password: DaBears2014

    Join this League (CBS Sports) ASAP! I will set the Draft for Sunday Night @ 7pm EST.


    Please reply in this thread with your team name. Since this is in the open, I need to make sure no one sneaks into the league that is NOT a registered member here.

    If this league fills up, we will create another league that mirror's the same settings as this league. The ultimate winner will be the team that has the highest points total from the final week.


    Later this week I will add the prizes and things you will earn if you become DaBears,com Fantasy Football Champ.

    The draft will be August 28th 8pm EST by live draft. If you can not make it, the site will auto pick based on your rankings..

    THIS WILL BE A LIVE DRAFT.

    For the most part this league is using default settings for points etc.

    What are you waiting for?

    I can change that to live, then autopick for those not there.

    I figured it would be too difficult to accomodate everyone's schedule with a live draft.

    I'm open to making it live. If you can't make it, then it picks for you based on the player rankings.

    Autopick also isn't about luck. Technically the WHOLE FF is luck based.

    We have no idea how good players will perform. So just because you have P. Manning, doesn't mean you will get 40 points each week.

    So it's all luck based, with a little bit of skill.

    I lean to auto, because with fans all over the country or world, scheduling could be hard.

    But live does add to the fun and challenge. I'm good either way

    Belly's Boys. Live preferably; auto if scheduling's too much.

    I will update it to a live draft. The draft will be August 28th at 8pm EST.

    If you can not make it, don't worry, the site will auto pick for you.

    I think are a few slots left.

    As for changing the time, 6pm EST would make it harder for the folks on the west coast, or central time to attend.

    I'm going to send out a mass email just to remind those that may not visit here until the regular season.

    I'm not a fan of having the draft in July, so as long as it's before the season, I think everyone will have enough time to scout of the players, and set up their team before the first kick off.

    Welcome back Pit!
