New $99 FanGraphs/Ottoneu Linear-Weights Keeper League

Postby jpjazzman » Thu Mar 10, 2011 8:50 pm

I don’t know if any of you saw, but FanGraphs launched a cool new fantasy baseball product and I just started a new league but need some competition! It’s a $99 12 team linear-weight/points league where you have an auction draft ($400) and 40 man rosters with keepers/prospects, etc. (23 starters needed). It pays out 80% to the top three each season, which is significantly better than CBS, ESPN, etc. It is also a very unique game that I thought some people here might be interested in since I've seen similar posts before where people showed a lot of interest.

If you want to learn more about how Ottoneu and FanGraph leagues work go here:

The league I started is called: The League of Not So Gentlemen

Or, you can email me at jonathan.n.parker AT gmail DOT com with any questions!
