Fantasy NFL 2018?

Just wondering if there'd be sufficient interest in doing this.

Depends how intense the draft is going to be.
Probably not a hardcore Fantasy Football guy as have done ones through online groups where drafting process is less intense. (16 team League, quick snake-draft where pick two teams and choose players from those teams.)
So count me out in

It's not too intense.
You can set it to automatically pick the next higher rank player if you want.

Well count me in. Being on a more UK time zoned basis may suit as well, rather than being the Irish guy disrupting the whole flow for Americans by my snoring and bed-sweats.

The Browns have won a (pre-season) game!

I'll do it. What platform will it be on? 16 teams, better have short rosters and dial back the TD points.

I'd potentially be up for this. Already play with a group of friends in a 10 team league on ESPN that we take pretty seriously (with a buy-in that goes towards a winners prize, Super Bowl party supplies and the loser's punishment), so it eats up quite a bit of time. But I should have time to manage another team.

I really object to the name 'fantasy football' and hope it gets replaced

I think we'd need at least 8 to make it work.

If you're not sure how it works, you can do a mock draft for it here: http://games.espn.com/ffl/welcome

Can somebody explain to me, in a sentence, how this game works and how points are tallied?

You pick individual offensive players (1 QB, a few RBs/WRs, a TE and a kicker) who score points for scoring points/gaining yards.
You also pick one team's entire defense, who score points for sacks/interceptions/etc.

There is a draft before the season starts to choose your squad.

yeah I'm up for that I can name about 5 players and match teams names to cities for most of the franchises, so I should be able to muster up something resembling a team

The mock drafts score you highest if you picked the top computer ranked player available each time, ignore.

I'll have a look at the numbers next weekend.
If we've got enough we can set a draft date and time.
