Starting A DraftSharks Members League - CBS Sports

Postby Fantasy Guru » Sun Jul 28, 2013 4:29 am

Would anyone be interested in joining a DraftSharks Members League and using the CBS Sports web site to manage the league? I figured we could use LeagueSafe to manage the entry fee / payouts. I thought about trying to get 12 teams (non PPR) and payout the top three teams (50% / 30% / 20%) minus the web site fee. I've done CBS Sports leagues for several years (Platinum) and get frustrated that they keep, in most cases, 50% of the entry fees. This would be a way to beat that frustration and make some new fantasy football buddies!! I'd be willing to set up and run this DraftSharks Members League if there is enough interest. I am currently the Commissioner for a league I started back in 1995. If interested, leave a reply and I will send you an INVITE to the league. I'll also keep a waiting list if we have more than 12 people interested.

Can't wait for another season of fantasy football!! :D

I haven't really given it much thought, as this is the first a few people have expressed interest. I thought no more than $100 entry fee. Of course, the web site fee is $150, so the total prize pool would be $1050. It would NOT be a PPR league.

I thought about paying out two places (Super Bowl Champ - $700 / Super Bowl Runner-up - $350)

The scoring system would mimic the CBS Fantasy Premium Games (if you've ever participated in any of the five fantasy football premium games, you know what I'm talking about).

I really would like to start up a DraftSharks Members league. I am going to go ahead a create it. If you want join and are willing to help make it successful, let me know (PM me or leave your email address in the post) and I will send you an invite.

The DraftSharks Fantasy Football League has been created (CBS Sports web site). Anyone interested, please PM me or drop your email in this post. I will send you a league invite. We can / will use LeagueSafe to manage all entry fees / payouts. I would like to have this filled before the web site has to be paid for (right now it's free to view / navigate), so I don't end up losing $150 (because we can't get enough owners to commit). If we get enough interest by August 8th, the web site fee is $150. I'm not sure how much it jumps after that date (maybe $20 which would affect the total prize payout).

I tweaked the QB scoring from 6pts to 4pts for a passing TD

I removed DEF PA and DEF YA

Staring lineup would consist of 1QB / 2RB's / 2WR's / 1TE / 1K / DEF. A maximum of 14 players on a roster.

I am willing to share Commissioner responsibilities with someone that has been Commissioner for a league(s) in the past.

This is true. We have two orphaned teams at this time looking for new ownership.
