We need at least three more players, ideally at least five more, to get this show on the road. I may try and recruit some people this week.
A quick fantasy football primer for people who don't necessarily even know anything about american football:
As I said before, you really don't need to know much - or indeed anything at all - about american football / NFL to play fantasy. The first season I played, I didn't know any of the rules, had never seen any american football games or heard of any players except OJ, and I still placed second in a 12-team league. A little bit of reading up on fantasy play can go a long way, though - my favoured source is CBSSports.com, but I think I'm unusual there: most people prefer other sites.
At the start of the season, you draft a team of players; each player can only be owned once in the league. You will want a starting lineup with a good Quarterback (QB), two running backs (RB), two wide receivers (WRs), a tight end (TE), kicker (K) and defense/special team (DST). You don't really need to know what these players actually do
in order to play fantasy - you just need to know that you get points for your players (a) moving the ball a given number of yards down the field and (b) scoring points for their teams.
Selecting which NFL players to use sounds pretty daunting, but actually isn't too hard to get started on - there are dozens of sites which carry fantasy football news, and most of them regularly publish ranked lists at every position for fantasy play.
Each week, your team will be matched up against one of the other teams in the league in a head-to-head format, whoever scores the most points that week wins. Towards the end of the season, when each team has played every other team once (or possibly twice, for 8 team leagues), the teams with the best win-loss record over the season go into a playoff bracket, with the bracket winner being the champion.
