    The 2016/17 Fantasy NFL Thread is now officially open.

    Hello, regulars, newbies and people who stumbled in here by accident. This is the place for discussion of TSR Fantasy NFL for the upcoming season. Please keep all fantasy chat confined to this thread in order to prevent clutter in the American Football Talk thread. (I am aware that I probably flout this rule more than anybody else)

    We are currently organising this years league. If you would like to register your interest please post in this thread. As I can't remember everyone who posted in the regular forum, please post in here again. If you were a participant in last years league please make me aware of this so I know who I'm dealing with.

    I will post an explanation of how Fantasy NFL works in this space at some point in order to make this a rookie friendly environment.

    Provisionally I'm thinking 10 player snake draft on NFL.com. If we get a sudden influx of players I'm willing to explore some more exotic options. As far as draft time Motorbiker has thrown out Sunday 4th September 18:00. If you are unavailable for this time please suggest another.

    Let the planning, trash talk and mock drafting begin.

    I am in. After following the league vicariously through Motorbiker last season, it is my turn to join and see what all the fuss is about. My plan is to set expectations low, so that it looks more impressive if i do well.

    Tebow's Third Down Conversion will be reporting for Fantasy OTAs, Draft, Training Camp and Regular Season, for sure!

    I might still change the name though...I don't know.

    Shunter, you're not the only one. I just hope I don't doom Julio Jones to the All-Knee team. I drafted him in another league, third overall...and it usually doesn't end well with my first rounders at all.

    Wattsy sounds good. I presume the league will be points per yard, not points per reception, yes?

    That's the plan. HBs need value somewhere in the league. We could consider PPR/Auction/IDP if there's lots of interest in those formats.

    I consigned Dez last season. Could do without a 1st round wipeout this time I have to say. Rookie season I got lucky with injuries and made the final.*

    I wish I could think of a new witty name, but alas I might just stick to the winning formula. Can pretty much draft any evening plus weekends. As long as we get it organised a week or so in advance I'll be prime. (Can't do sat afternoons at the moment though. Rota is not kind to me.)

    I think there will be space. I've just got the commissioner controls so I'll work out how to invite you if there is space. Do you know how fantasy NFL works or do you want a primer? I only ask because I'm not sure I've seen you in the main American Football thread much.*

    On the team name front I wanted 'Bortles Kombat: Armbristergeddon' for some football anorak kudos but it was too long. 3rd string MLBs need some love too but NFL.com just wouldn't allow it.

    I haven't commented on the Nfl on here a lot, I know how it works I've been in a few draft now leagues on the site.

    Hurray! Sorry about the length of time it took. I thought I'd increased the team number allowance but it didn't save the change so the league was technically full. Now I've edited the number and it finally worked

    I'm trying to work out which teams are definitely active for the season so far and this is what I have:

    Wattsy – Shad Khan
    Shunter – Red Wright 88
    Jammy - Tebow
    SmashConcept – Clinton-Dix Trump
    Motorbiker – Dez
    DT – Hernandez Pistol
    Joe – Laces Out
    MonkeyPete - Supreme Leader

    The three additional players from last year all have dormant accounts so are unlikely to be back, they will have received league reactivation emails so we have 2 spots going spare.

    I surprised you didn't up the reference factor and go for "Laces out for Harambe"
