Not if I can help it. Ask Randy how his playoff record stands and who's knocked him out 3 years in a row...

You just really only need to be active for a minimum of about 15 minutes per week. Making sure you don't have any players on your lineup that are on bye week or out for the season with an injury. You don't need to be posting messages talking smack every day. An active manager will have his lineup active every week.

If you have any questions, I'm more than happy to answer any you may have about the league or fantasy football in general.

I dropped down from 15 to 5 last year. People just weren't motivated to play. I had to play in a couple public leagues. Eventually I want to get a big group of local guys and do a face to face keeper league instead of the half-and-half keeper league I run now. Just trying to figure out who would be Taco and who would be Andre. Only a few of you will get that reference.

I spend about 15 minutes a week setting my lineups for 5 leagues. I spend a majority of the rest of the week reading articles and listening to sportscasts for injury reports and planning out my waiver claims. There's a reason I have AJ Green and Jimmy Graham as keepers for a round 5 and round 8 draft pick in the keeper league. =P

Only other mods were mlee and gtahvit. Keep in mind that members from last year take priority if they want to sign up. It looks like we may be doing 2 leagues again this year.

I would prefer people who actually want to be a part of this, and not guys who just feel like it last minute.

Individual Defensive Player leagues are a little more advanced than most people want to delve. I tried it for the first time last year and it was definitely a learning curve. I did my research and came out with the trophy. =)
