Same rules as last year. You have to join a Yahoo Public Competitive League and use your first two draft picks to pick a kicker and defense. Whoever wins their league wins the sand. If you are interested in playing this year, just post in this thread. There will be a $500 sand entry fee and all sand collected will go to the winner.

Anyone who pays is a contestant. There will be no limit to the number of sharks who can play, but every shark can only have one entry. The league id must be posted prior to the draft, and once the draft starts, they are locked into that team. No starting over (unless it gets totally messed up where the first two picks don't go kicker/defense). It must be a public league that everyone can view. If we can't see your league, then you signed up for a private league and that entry will not count.

Whoever goes the furthest wins the pot. If more than one shark wins, the pot will be split between them.

I'll start us off by saying I'm playing. My $500 sand is in. I'll continue to update the first post of this thread as sharks join and drafts begin.

Everyone should be playing in "Casual" leagues.

You can join the competition right up until the week before the season starts, as long as you post your team name, draft date, and league ID before your draft starts.

Post your league id and team name in this thread so I can add links to the league in this post.


If you need instructions on how to join a yahoo league see StoneCutter's thread from last year.

Congratulations to the winners! We had 46 entries ($500sand each) for a total prize pot of $23,000sand. Split four ways is $5,750sand each. Sending now.

Ok, drafted today just for grins:

1.04

QB: Ryan
RB: Beast Mode, Sproles, Best, M Bush, Ridley, Mendy
WR: S Smith, Dez, Lloyd, Wayne, R Moss
TE: Pettigrew
K: Crosby
DEF: 49ers

Solid team, nothing glaring, but like my chances. Figured I'd draft before preseason started to get a jump on the WW if there's a breakout/sleeper that emerges. Loved tacking on Mendy there at the end. He's going to make for a nice bye week filler and free up some mid-season trade bait. Can't believe he's going relatively undrafted when AP is going 2nd or 3rd round...

There was little banter in my draft. Two or three wth's, but no one really responded to my comments. There was a team on auto draft that kept a few great players from falling to me. I'm really surprised I was able to get Lynch in the 3rd, given his current ADP. I see a lot of parallels in this team and the team I won with 2 seasons ago when I was able to grab Shady in round 3. :Drink)

Well, 2 of my players were arrested over the weekend. Maybe drafting this early was a bad idea :F .

Also, they changed it up apparently, and they no longer have "Competitive" Leagues. They have "Casual" and "Winner". But when I click on "Winner" and live online/standard draft, it says they have no times available for this league type...

Craphead, did you just do "Casual"?

Yes casual is what we have to do this year, I think Yahoo dumped the competitive leagues and are doing the money leagues instead.

Yes $500 sands to get in, the pot is split equally between the sharks who win their leagues.
