Default 'Real' NFL team league

Ok I've created what I call the 'UK NFL Homage League' - the idea is that every team in it will be named after a real team. There can be only be one of any team so who will be greatest fantasy fan team. Further info is below.

The Niners, Raiders and Dolphins already have teams - fans of any other team are welcome to join.

Link at the bottom of the post on how to join


Upto 16 Teams will be allowed (Each will have to be in groups of 4 divisions, so will be 4, 8, 12 or 16)

----------------------------------------------------------------------
  • All team names and logos have to match a real NFL team
  • There will only be one of any given real team in the league
  • Once league is closed I'll move teams into divisions that match the real thing as cloesely as possible
  • Heavily customised (scoring and positions) - check the league rules to see full details (positions listed below though)
  • Must have at least one offensive and one defensive player of 'your NFL team' on your team roster at any one time (failure to do so results in forfeiting the game)
  • This will become a keeper/semi dynasty league - it is slightly complicated how this will work but is outlined below. Keepers will come from the initial rounds and draft order will be randomised.
  • Draft is Sep 4, 2012 at 8:00pm BST (so just before the season starts)
  • Relegation - I'll consider relegating bottom teams/teams that are not activley involved to keep things fresh but will think on this further before deciding
  • While only one team per real NFL team is allowed co-owner ability will be available so you have a mate who's the fan of the same team you can share ownership


Player Positions


1 QB (Min 1- Max 3)
1 RB (1-4)
2 WR (2-6)
1 TE (1-3)
1 FLEX (RB/WR/TE)

1 K (1-2)

3 DL
3 LB
4 DB
1 FLEX


Keepers: (for future info)

If take three offensive keepers also have to take 1 defensive player. If take four offensive keepers also have to take 2 defensive

If you have one or more players that you have kept for more than one year +1 to number of defensive players you have to keep

If you have one or more players that you have kept for more than two years +2 to number of defensive players you have to keep

If you have one or more players that you have kept for more than three years +3 to number of defensive players you have to keep
------------------------------------------------------------------------

I've signed up as the Redskins, on holiday when the draft takes place but I'm sure I won't forget and get on a computer.

Signed up as the Packers

Does this mean we can only draft players from our own team ;-)

Not quite but rules are 1 offensive and 1 non-offensive player in the squad from your real NFL team. You should have plenty to choose from as a Packer!

Is that only 1 of each; or minimum of 1 each?
