2013 Y! H2H Keeper League

Postby Matzel on Sat Sep 07, 2013 7:38 am

Hello Fellow Fantasy GMs!

Welcome back to another season of H2H fun. All managers from last season have been sent invitations. Should a team be available I will be announcing it in this thread and award it to an interested newcomer.

The live online draft is set for Saturday, September 28th at 3:00pm EDT. All managers should make every attempt to take part as the draft is crucial to success in what is a very competitive league.

Scoring settings are identical to last season but I invite all to make suggestions for possible changes on the league messageboards. Simple majority rules on all changes.

If you have already signed on, you may have noticed that Y! has changed the keeper set up for leagues. I am very happy to see that, as we had a serious keeper problem last season with a few managers not receiving (all their previously selected keeper) picks. The deadline for keeper selection is the 27th, one day before the live online draft.

I am looking forward to the puck drop!

I can't tell you how much I look forward to getting this email every year. It's like my alarm clock from hockey hibernation.

Terrible timing for the draft day. I'm actually driving back home to Arizona for a visit and more specifically, opening night in Glendale.

If I could arrange it, would you guys mind if I had a buddy draft my team instead of just rolling the dice with autodraft?
Listen...do you smell something?

Shaun, I know exactly how you feel. Toward the end of the summer, I find myself constantly checking the Y! fantasy pages to set up this league. I can honestly say that it adds a lot more excitement to my winter.

Feel free to enlist the help of a buddy to draft. You probably have seen the option to set a co-manager in the team settings page.

Good luck!

A complete non-issue for me. Having auto-picked twice out of four years, I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy. With that said, I hope your friend oversleeps and you autodraft anyway ;)

With 10 days to go until the live online draft, we have 15 teams. I have just resent the invites to the managers not yet back, but we may have a team up for grabs for someone interested in joining our little league...

I am not yet in a fantasy hockey league this season and I'd like to be in one, figure it would be more fun to be in one with people from some forum than a yahoo total stranger league. If this one is a free one I'm interested in joining (I need to save my fantasy nickels for parking at Coyotes games). I'm in one $$ football pickem league and that's busted my budget (although if I can win 1 week I'll get my investment back, and I almost did last week (tied for wins with 14 but lost the tiebreaker on points in the SF/Seattle game! *duh*) - but I can't count on winning that league theres like 30 people in it and for all I know tying for the lead in week 2 is as close as I'll get there...

My only snag is I have ASU season football tickets and iirc the ASU versus USC game is on the 28th (game time is currently TBA but unless TV dictates an afternoon kickoff ASU games are usually 7 or 7:30 PM) but if I had to miss the draft if the league allows for pre-ranking and I know a few days in advance I can do my diligence prior to the draft.

LOL... I got thick skin. It compliments my thick skull. At least I didn't get last season's champs! I'll just try to capture the spirit of Leo Durocher taking over the '66 Cubs and say "We're not a 6th Place team!" and try not to remember his first year the Cubs finished last. ;)

(I grew up a White Sox fan (back when baseball mattered to me in the 60s and 70s), but couldn't help notice Durocher as so many Cubs games were on the TV when I'd get home from school back in those days.)

Welcome to the league yotesreign! And autodraft is absolutely fantastic. I'd trust it with my first born. In fact it's BETTER than live if you can believe that. It's remarkable how many times people have posted comments about the quality of autodraft after first seeing their autodraft results. Definitely go for it whether you have a conflict or not! :P

Hey that's not what your co-manager said! :P

My only experience with auto-draft is a past NFL league and no I wasn't quite as enthused as you. I might have also used a word to describe it that started with an "f" but iirc, the word wasn't 'fantastic'.

I should be able to participate in the draft since the ASU v USC game doesn't start until 7:30 PM and I won't probably leave for that until 5 PM.
