That's right folks, the lockout is over and football is back in season and with that it brings an exciting new season of Fantasy Football.

For the last couple years I've always wanted to play in a fantasy league that wasn't full of strangers (I've played in random leagues for the last several years on NFL.com and a few other sites) and it finally dawned on me why don't I run a league for everyone at Wowhead and ZAM! There should at least be enough of us to have a fun time this season.
This year (hopefully going to be having this yearly) we will be using Fleaflicker.
You can signup for the league at http://www.fleaflicker.com/nfl/league?leagueId=107925 password is tastydataz
For those unfamiliar with how Fantasy Football works I'll give you a quick rundown here. At the beginning of the season we hold a draft, much like the official draft used in sports each player takes turns picking players to fill out their roster (we will have an an automatic draft where you rank the order of players you want picked). Every week you will be setup to "play" against another person in your division. Before the games start on Sunday (or Thursday if your players have one of those games) you will pick your starters for each position and once the game starts your players earn you points if they do good. After all the games are over your points are added up and the player who has the most points wins. After the season is over we go into the playoffs where some of the best teams compete in a single elimination tournament and the player who wins is crowned Champion with bragging rights!
I'll be writing a guide in the next couple days on how to setup your draft rankings and use the site for those who aren't familiar with Fantasy Football.
If there are any questions I'll be checking back here frequently.
