I'm stealing this from whoever came up with the format Henry Abbott is in, but I think it is a good idea.
Basically, it is a twelve man team, no bench, no free agents, waivers, or trades. You pick twelve, ride them the whole year, they play in every game. This allows a fantasy league for people not able or interested in divesting a huge of time time that has to eventually go in to keeping track of their team, while not completely taking out the fun of the league, which is obsessing over players and stats. It just becomes condensed into pre-season instead of ongoing.
Henry's league has a roto format with eight categories (no 3PT% or turnovers) but it could also be done with head-to-head, and with all ten categories (that could really get interesting and frustrating).
It's a long way to next season, but it is something to think about. We could have the winner crowned official Blazersedge statistical performance prognosticator, with a t-shirt saying as much the prize (cheap enough to have everyone chip in about a buck each). Let's face it, that would be some good prognosticatin' to ride the same twelve players over a season (or we could change it to least crummy prognosticator if the winner sees the glass as a lucky half-empty).
More than anything, though, it would allow people to have some fantasy fun with minimal stress/time investment, and would be a challenge to die hards to pick a winner right off the bat. Sound good to anyone here?
Set in stone fantasy league option?
Not sure, but I'd consider signing up with that minimal a commitment. (3 votes)
Yes, It limits the "I'm 'managing' my own team aspect", but would still be fun, and would be the only way I'd have/be willing to make time to get involved in a fantasy league. (6 votes)
No, there's no point if you don't get to obsess over "day-to-day" operations. (6 votes)
