Rookie Sleepers: Wide Receivers:

Alex Michael (@DynastyGuruNFL) is back with his series looking at some of the best rookie sleepers at each position that can help you dominate your fantasy leagues for years to come.

To continue on from the previous article outlining some of the potential running backs you may find available later in your dynasty drafts or as sleepers for your redraft leagues, here is the segment concentrating on Wide Receivers. In your second-round dynasty draft (or mid-round redraft leagues), you can anticipate the likes of Brandon Aiyuk, Levishka Shenault Jr. and Tee Higgins leaving the board in dynasty drafts and at the later stages of your redraft leagues. Thankfully, because of the depth in the 2020WRclassthere are several potential sleepers are very likely to be available in the deeper rounds purely which will hopefully give you some value and contribute to your seasons. read more

Rookie sleepers – Running Backs: Go and get A.J. Dillon

Alex Michael (@DynastyGuruNFL) brings you the first of a series looking at some of the best rookie sleepers at each position that can help you dominate your fantasy leagues for years to come.

This series of articles is looking away from the big names that everyone is talking about inthe run up to your draft and will hopefully give you some food for thought going into Round three and onward of any Dynasty drafts, or maybe as a sleeper in any deep (really deep in some cases) redraft leagues. read more

The First and Ten Mega League III – Sign Up Now!

Welcome to the Third Annual First And Ten.co.uk Mega League.

The Mega League will be made up of four leagues, with the league winners and the two highest scoring, non-champions making up the postseason.

All leagues will be run on Sleeper. The Scoring is pretty much standard other than six point passing touchdowns and -2 for interceptions.

One of the big changes for this year is the make up of the roster. We have removed the kicker position, added an extra flex spot and perhaps the biggest change – added a super flex spot. For those that haven’t played it before, it is basically a second quarterback spot but you can also play a RB/WR/TE if you want to.

It leaves it as QB,Q/W/R/T,RB,RB,WR,WR,TE,Flex,Flex,Def and 5 bench spots.

We have decided to do all the drafts over a couple of days this year. Sorry to those that can’t make these dates but it just makes it a lot easier to run.

League 1 – Thursday August 22 – 8pm

League 2 – Thursday August 22 – 9.30pm

League 3 – Thursday August 23 – 8pm

League 4 – Thursday August 23 – 9.30pm

I’ll do my best to accommodate everybody’s needs but it may not always be possible. There is a possibility that a fifth league will be added but for now these are it.

One entry per person.

To enter, firstly please like our Facebook page on Twitter.

Then please fill out the following and I will contact you as soon as possible to let you know what league you are in:

ENTRY FORM

I will be in all four leagues as a commissioner. However, I will only be eligible for the postseason in one of them – the Brady Division. If I somehow win the league or win one of the wild card spots with one of the other teams then I will not be eligible for the postseason. It will go to the next place. So either the runner up if I win a league or the next highest scorer if it is a wild card.

All decisions are final and I will be the one reviewing trades etc to make sure there is no collusion etc. Anybody found colluding will be removed from the league and ineligible for the postseason/prizes.

Prizes

The top three finishers in the postseason league will receive the following:

1st NFL game jersey of your choice and the brand new Mega League Trophy that will be named on the podcast through the season

2nd NFL Facility T Shirt from the team of your choice

3rd New Era cap from the team of your choice

The Postseason

The scoring will remain almost exactly the same but rosters will differ slightly.

The draft will be done in the week after the season before the start of the Wild Card games. It will done by skype/email/facebook/pigeon. We will work that out with the people that make it in.

Rosters will be made up of:

2 team QBs – so instead of drafting Tom Brady, you would draft the New England QBs so you would receive points from any player recognised as a QB from that team.

3 WRs

2 RBs

2 TEs

3 W/R/T

No defences will be used in the postseason.

You can pick just one player per team. So every team will be made up of one player from each team making the playoffs.

If a player is injured then he can be swapped out for a replacement. However, once a player has been dropped then they are unavailable for selection for the rest of the competition.

The postseason rules may be tweaked a little but I will sort that with the entrants at the time.

First and Ten Dynasty Leagues – SIGN UP NOW!

Due to demand, we will be running two leagues. One on Yahoo and one on Sleeper. Please fill out the following form to register your interest.

ENTRY FORM IS HERE

Roster Spots: QB, Q/W/R/T, WR, WR, WR, RB, RB, TE, W/R/T, W/R/T, DEF, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN Plus 2 IR spots

The Q/W/R/T is essentially a second QB slot but allows more room for other players, so you can always fill a spot.

Playoffs: 6 teams, first two seeds get byes. Weeks 14,15,16.

The Draft: This season will be a slow draft over a week or so (or quicker if it takes less time). The details for how we draft will be confirmed when we have our final numbers. All players will be available to draft. The draft will take place shortly after the NFL draft. This is early, of course, but logistically it is easier for us here, and it also fills the gap for everyone so that is great.

In every year from this there will be two drafts, a rookie draft and a free agent draft.

The rookie draft, as the name suggests, will be for all the rookies entering the league and will take place in the fortnight or so following the NFL draft. It will be a five round draft and picks can be traded.

The free agent draft will take place during the NFL preseason (around week two of preseason) and will be a three-round draft. Trades for this can not be traded. All players not on teams will be in this draft, including rookies that are cut from teams.
