I was wondering about my league. I read what a roto league was and a keeper league at the beginning of the post but I think my league is neither. Basically, we have all the stats you see below my roster and everything is just totalled to get a score. Everyday you have a new total and you just add to what you had previously. The numbers will be getting up to the millions but thats how everything scored. Do you have any idea what that type of league is called? When ppl ask me what kind of league in a post I kind of don't know what to say, thanks

It's a Points League. And how on Earth did you score that team? 8-o Three team league?

Its a 5 team league and I wasn't present for the online draft! I used the rankings from this website to create a draft list and I got really lucky but since most of my team is injured, I'm dropping from first rather quickly to third, thanks for the reply!

Projections as in stats, or do you mean scheduled starts? Sounds like you mean scheduled starts, so Rototimes has them. ;-D

Or just look at the schedule at any of the major sites and see who starts on Monday or Tuesday.

If you're in a keeper league with a live draft, then it's common to take your keepers with your first "X" number of picks. So if you keep 5 players, your first 5 picks will be those 5 guys that you kept from last year. 10 keepers would be the first 10 picks, and so on.

Typically though, most keeper leagues do slow drafts on message boards. A whole lot easier to manage, and you don't have to trust everyone to only draft their keepers in the first few rounds. However, if it's a private league, the commish can take care of any problems if someone tries to cheat in the draft. ;-D

Hi, I got quick question.
In WHIP topics, when I want to put a link to my topic in the bottom of my post, how do I go about to do that? Do I manually copy and paste from the address bar, or is there some button that automatically posts it? Like the Post Roster button?

You mean WHIR (Will Help In Return) topics?

Yes, copy and paste is the way to go. Just put the link between the [url]and[/url] tags and you're all set. ;-D
