    Right so I've got:

    Cov
    Fatboy
    Reacher
    Jono
    Me
    welshben1982

    There's space for 2x more people. Please post here before Saturday PM if you want to be included.

    I'll set it up this weekend. I've got two mates that are happy to join, to take us up to 8 (one is VERY good at this.) I'll then post a link here to join, as I can't message you individually any more. When you join, please post in here saying who you are, so I know not to kick you out of the league.

    @cov well the other one will be cannon fodder so you'll at least have someone to compete with!

    @JamesUK you're in. It's good fun. It also helps you learn about players and other aspects of the sport as well.

    I missed the start of the EG league last season but I did joined a random league on the NFL site, it was the first time I've done any fantasy league stuff. I'm a casual NFL fan and yeah, it really helps to give a broader view of the league and players.

    Is there a date set for the draft?

    No date set and that's a good question.

    Can everyone post of there are any days or times they want me to avoid for the draw.

    Currently I'm thinking one weekday evening at 20:30 (UK time).

    @Dougs Don't worry about that, just hope you are first draft pick and can pick McCaffrey.

    Yeah, me too. Although there's a medium risk of me not having time to attempt to do this properly and becoming a wasted slot. That said, the results will likely be similar either way.

    I've got a draft on Tuesday for my other league, so any other date is good for me.

    What's the time commitment in terms of chopping and changing the teams? Can I just pick a team and fiddle a bit, or do I need to do transfers etc all the time. Aka, what are the rules!

    (For context, I can't be arsed/have the time to commit to my fantasy football league I've been running for 25 years beyond picking a team at the auction). So if it's full on, someone else may benefit more.

    Low - main is in initial pick, after is at least make sure you swap out anyone listed as inactive by their team who you have om your roster, the moee you check actual form and update your roster with ermerging talent to replace long term injured and stinkers the better, more nuanced is to swap out players depending on who teams are playing week by week to find potential mis matches

    Or you do what i do and stubbornly pick players from your team who havent been in the playoffs for 20 years and have had hardly any winning seasons in that time and stick with them because you are an idiot and come bottom :)

    Well that 2nd paragraph nailed me in any game ever so if Dougs doesn't take the last spot, I'll be happy to be first sub. I also won't mind if I miss out (so no pressure on Dougs!) and join properly at a later date in a later game.

    Yeah main commitment is initially. After that it's more picking on form, match up, and making sure you do subs.

    Unlike fantasy "soccer", there's no auto sub stuff in this. You leave someone in the team that's on a bye week, you get NADA.

    If you want some inspiration. I started 2 years ago and was last by some distance. Last year I came 4th.

    Just for clarity, we had more than four teams last year.

    Cheeky. Considering Baker Mayfield was my starting QB, I thought I did well!

    @Jono62 you did. The difference between the year before and last year was huge.

    Also Jono is joint commissioner of the league. So you have to be nice to him. Otherwise he can kick you out of the league.
