Believe it or not, we’re only 30 days away from fully uncorking this fantasy football season! There’s no stopping it now!
So let’s talk about the draft parties!
One of the best things about the HFFL is the fact that we do live, in-person draft parties to start the year. As I explained in the Syllabus, each league has their own draft party and the dates for each of those is below.
The parties are held in the basement of the church building. You’re encouraged to bring a snack or some soda to share with your league. No beer, please, for insurance reasons. Sorry about that.
And while the draft works best in-person, I understand that some of you may not be able to make your league’s date. So there are online options available that work really well. If you need help figuring it out, let me know.
Now, put your league’s date on your calendar and try to make it!
League of Champions
The LOC will draft on Monday, August 24th at 8pm.
This draft will be using the Yahoo online draft tool for the Auction Draft. If you can’t be there in person, log on to the league page on Yahoo and launch the draft there. Or, download the Yahoo Fantasy Sports app and you can bid on your players there as well. I highly recommend trying a Mock Draft on Yahoo ahead of 8/24 just to get a look at how the interface works.
The LOC this year is:
The Premier League will draft Friday, August 28th at 8pm.
This snake draft will NOT use the Yahoo draft tool. Instead, we will run the draft with a Google document that will be accessible remotely on Google Drive. You can see the live results and then use the chat feature to send me your picks when your turn comes up. I’ll walk you through it if need be. It’s slick.
