The upside, or maybe downside, of getting into fantasy football is that you start following teams/players other than your favorites. So i've started gaining an appreciation for other teams players, at the expense of following the bears.
If you join a league where waivers dont take place until tuesday or wednesday (after Monday night football) then the time commitment might not be so bad, maybe spend 15 mins - 1 hr a week on your waiver wire (picking up free agents - players not owned by any team in your fantasy league - that look like theyre going to be starters because of injury, etc) and setting lineups (bye week replacements, etc). That's probably the minimum you could do and still have a chance to compete. There's so many sites out there with advice on who to pick up and who to drop and who to start that with a little internet research you could still be competitive with the players who spend hours every week reading and thinking about their lineups.

Even if the rams are better they're still looking at 3rd in their division behind seattle and 'zona. And the niners should improve on their 2 win season from last year, maybe they won't be better than the rams but anything is possible.
Maybe i'm just down on the rams because when i think of a good/great rams team i think of their greatest show on turf days, with warner, faulk, bruce and holt.
The only rams game i saw last year was their london game against the giants, and both teams struggled to score points. I think the rams were starting case keenum then, who wasn't good, but their offense got worse when they started goff. But it's a new year, they have a new coaching staff after finally getting rid of jeff (7-9) fisher, so maybe goff will show everyone what he can do. But honestly I think Goff was a reach at #1 overall in last year's draft, more than trubisky at #2 this year. I guess the rams wanted to make a bold move last year since it was their first year in LA, but goff did not look like the second coming of peyton manning or cam newton.

do you play in multiple leagues baba'?
how do they work as far as building your roster goes?
/do you draft at the beginning of the season/ is their a cap or spending facet?
just curious about the game and you seem to know your way around

i agree 100% that goff was not a good pick at #1
i think they wanted him to become the face of the franchise and stir up some hype in their new home town
this team is far away from the great rams teams of the past and i think that they are a few years off from the playoffs at best


get to see the chargers and rams play tonight and it looks like there is a full plate of preseason action on the tv tomorrow
i am ready for football!

I play in a couple of leagues, some people play in a lot more than that (dozen or more). I think when daily fantasy (draftkings, fanduel) was big the big fish would have hundreds or thousands of teams at a time, but they used scripts or bots (software) to manage that.
My leagues are re-draft (no dynasty, no keeping players from previous years) snake draft leagues (first round is 1st pick to last pick, 2nd round the guy who picked last in the 1st round goes first, guy who picked first in the first round goes last, etc). I've heard auction leagues can be fun, that way everyone gets a chance to draft every player, just depends on how much you want to spend.
My leagues usually draft just before the regular season starts, that way you can avoid all the injuries to key guys (edelman, ware, etc) that happens during preseason.
Maybe Goff will develop into a franchise QB, there's still time on him, but I feel that every highly regarded QB coming out of Cal is compared to Aaron Rodgers, which makes about as much sense as every 6th round QB being compared to tom brady. Like, stop, please stop...

It's looking like you'll have more fun watching chargers games than rams game this season.

The bears projected #1 WR, Cam Meredith (undrafted former college QB) apparently wrecked his knee yesterday. So, an already thin WR corps looks to get even worse. Maybe former giants Victor cruz and reuben randle will make the team after all...

Got my draft done. Was going to join everybody else for the live draft on Saturday morning, but I spaced and forgot about it. By the time I remembered, the draft was over, lol. Still didn't do too bad, but I'm gonna need a couple more running backs...Spencer Ware is probably done for the season, so I'm hoping to pick up Demarco Murray off of waivers. Also, the auto draft gave me two defenses that have the same bye week, which makes it extra stupid.

Here's my squad as drafted last Saturday:

Aaron Rodgers
AJ Green
Sammy Watkins
Jordy Nelson
Ty Montgomery
Spencer Ware
Rob Gronkowski
Larry Fitzgerald

Bench:
Cam Newton
Frank Gore
Terrance West
Adam Theilen
CJ Fiedorowicz

Kicker:
Justin Tucker

Defense:
Minnesota
Pittsburgh

HB.

Not a bad line up hopefully AJ Green will return to his consistent monster fantasy numbers this year... Last season was tough for him without Hue Jackson's high powered offense

In what league is demarco murray available on waivers after the draft? He's a top 10 or 12 RB, even in a 6 team league he should have been drafted...

I could have sworn I posted here, don't see it now and don't think it was deleted.... The preseason is one thing, injuries another, and what will unfold still another... The Patriots can adapt to anything and the loss of one guy and a shaky preseason using mostly players that will see little regular season time or be cut doesn't dampen my spirits more than a few percent... The Patriots are a potent force that should dominate and I look forward to another great season with little doubt... Go Patriots!!!!

Sorry, Booey. My mistake! I meant to type Darren McFadden, not Demarco Murray. Not a great pick up...(there wasn't much left to pick from) but Ware's season is pretty much done and I'll take what I can get at this point.

Heya pop rocks, that's pretty much it, but we get 3 WRs, two RBs, and a flex (either wr or rb) that we can play each week.

HB.

Losing Edelman was a tough blow but the Pats have like 6-7 playmakers on their offense that brady can get the ball to so i doubt they lose much scoring potential, if at all.
What are you thinking Toker, 19-0 this year? Or 18-1? With the one loss coming in ... week 17?

McFadden makes more sense than Murray, I can see how you mixed them up (especially since demarco was the cowboys RB a couple years ago). Still, with ezekiel suspended for the first 6 games (pending appeal), you'd think at least whoever drafted ezekiel in your league would have picked up mcfadden as well. But their loss is your gain.
RB may be the weak link in your team, unless Terrence west or montgomery break out you dont appear to have a top 5 or 10 RB on your roster.

Goff was uneven against the chargers, had some throws he wishes he could take back. But it's a process, he's not going to become a good to great qb during one training camp. You just have to hope that he starts off the season at least serviceable, and then shows improvement from there.
