    Fantasy Basketball

    Football season has started and baseball playoffs are about to begin, but basketball will be starting pretty soon. I've played fantasy baseball and fantasy football before, but I don't think I've ever done fantasy basketball. I created a league on Yahoo's fantasy sports, and thought I would check with my fellow SSGers to see if anyone is up for it. Post here if you are interested, and I can PM a link for the league. This is just for fun, and no cash involved (my state doesn't allow that anyway).

    At this point, I plan on having the following settings:

    12 team head-to-head league (you play one opponent each week, and get a win/loss/tie for each stat category)

    Stat categories:

    3 Point shots made
    Points scored
    Total rebounds
    Blocked Shots
    Personal Fouls

    I usually don't do too well in fantasy leagues, and haven't followed basketball too closely since the Sonics left Seattle, so there is a good chance you could defeat me.

    Where "text" & "friend" are (n) & "fail" is (v)
    Do you lose points for fouls, or is that like penalty minutes in hockey where you earn them? I tried a season of rotisserie baseball (as it was called back-in-tha-day) and didn't like it (far too long) and a few of hockey (I like to watch the sport, but not enough to "fantasize" it). Football is just the right length and I "get" it better than the other sports.
    I predict that the upcoming Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi film will include the word "and." Multiple times.

    I'm guessing that in this case, whichever team has the fewest fouls wins the category. There are other categories, but these are the 10 that I chose that seemed the best.

    Tbe baseball league I am in usually does head to head, but this year we did Rotisserie style. I first learned about that when I got the official Rotisserie League book back in 1984. I never had the opportunity to play until years later when I found sites online where you could play. I've played several years of baseball and football in leagues with a co-worker who is the commissioner.

    I've made it a public league on the Yahoo Fantasy Basketball site, and the live draft will be tomorrow at 8:00 PM Pacific Time. I've called it "Rogue Basketball League". It should be showing up there shortly.
