Anyone want to join the TD.com Fantasy League Championship?


Do you want takeover a team in the TD.com Championship fantasy league? It is pretty decent and has talent.

Also, if anyone else is interested, then please chime in. There is a second team that sucks that is also available

No current members of the league are allowed to take over the teams. Rosters and league info are in this thread.

If he doesn't I might be interested.

I haven't done footy fantasy in 2 years and miss it.

I would like to give him first chance at cwil's team after just missing out on playing in both leagues, but you are at least guaranteed blue's crappy team if you want it.

I'll pass. I've got tons of travel coming up. And it's pretty far along in the season.

Thanks for asking though.

How would I go about assuming ownership of this team?

Is the rest of the league cool with a new player coming in?

I've done the official EPL fantasy before, but it seems like you all are doing yourselves. Can I get a brief explanation how this is being run?

Please and thank you.

Also "Charlie Davies Lucky Seat Belt" does not work for me as name. I will require a name change.

Ok, you can take over cwil's team and rename however you like.

Everything is done in the league thread (huge 100+ page thread).

We use the same scoring as the EPL fantasy site for simplicity. The OP contains the league rules (made by WarSlamEagle - the commish of the other league), but it is possible that some of the rules are outdated or do not apply.

You set a roster each week (there are 36 gameweeks, so you play each team four times) and score your own points. You can start any reasonable lineup. You need one starting goalie, three to five defenders (most teams use three), three to five midfielders, and one to three forwards. A 3-4-3 seems to be the most common for fantasy soccer.

You nominate one player to be your captain and his points are doubled. You will also nominate a/r vice-captain, and he will get his points doubled if your captain does not play. Also, pick one sub from your bench in case someone does not play. However, your sub has to replace a player that keeps a logical formation. For example, if you used a 3-4-3 with a forward as a sub and had a midfielder not play, then you could not sub him in, since a 3-3-4 is not allowed.

Use the EPL fantasy site for help. It allows to score your players, find free agents, and keep track of your team. Sign up and make a team in there if you do not already have because it really helps.

Just yesterday, I realized that you should add your TD fantasy team to your watchlist because then you can instantly keep track of it and score it way quicker. Check out my bolded post near the bottom of page 103.

The OP has a lot of details, most notably the EPL player stats, editable league table, and editable roster. Generally, I have been updating these documents (and Mick helps as well), but they are open to everyone.

Use the roster spreadsheet to see if a player is owned before claiming them. Waivers are first come, first serve (this was a lengthy preseason debate) that open Wednesday at 8:00 am CST and close Friday night at 11:59 pm CST. (This week is different because of the midweek games). Rosters need to be set before the first game kicks off and an unset roster means that the roster from the previous week is used.

You can trade between teams. Just a guess, but I would assume trades only happen during the time to freely add and drop players.

I think I hit everything. Feel free to ask any questions. It should not be too complicated. You may want to check out the OP and the last few pages of the thread to get the flow of scoring and posting rosters and shite. My lengthy post on page 99 is where we decided to make a move to replace the deadbeat owners, so that may be a good place to start reading.

I'm out.

Y'all have been doing this all season and I'm not into jumping in in the middle with a club I didn't pick. I'm also not into doing the scoring myself and having to type out every transfer request. I was under the impression that there was a website doing all of the scoring and I could move players around more easily. I've never played like this and don't want to start to learn in the middle of the season.

Sorry if I wasted time.

Understandable.

Bump. I guess the search is back on for two new owners.

Members of WSE's league could go for the double.
