Join my fantasy football league!

I am looking at doing a pay league via Yahoo, as I like their format the best and it seems most user friendly.

Here’s the breakdown of the league scoring/rules:

Here’s what would come with a pay league:
– Live stats
– Extensive weekly and draft scouting reports
– Advanced controls for scoring/stats (more customization)
– Prizes (Cash!)

Here’s what I’m thinking for prizes:
– $10 weekly high scoring team (16 weeks * $10 = $160)
– $10 weekly high scoring player (I would probably do NOT on the same team as the high scoring team, but that’s up for debate) (16 weeks * $10 = $160)
– Lump sum grand prize or 1st/2nd place prizes (I’m thinking $160 grand prize, $35 2nd place = $195)

League setup costs $124.99

So, some easy math
160 + 160 + 160 + 35 + 125 = $640

$640/8 teams = $80/team.

If that sounds like too much money, we can either increase the number of teams or decrease the prizes. There’s other ways to add to prize amounts, like charging for trades/transactions, etc.
