Not sure if y'all have heard of these, but it's a season-long league where the worst score each week is eliminated from the league. There are 17 teams, so each week through week 16 has a team removed, leaving one team standing in the end.

The interesting twist, is that the players from the losing teams are released to the masses to be bid on with FAAB money. The strategy on how to spend that money would be interesting to see. I have never participated in a league like this, but it seems fun.

I just sent out a feeler to do one of these with guys I know in the real world. I'm not sure if we are going to get to 17 teams though, so I thought that some of you here might be interested in rounding out the league.

We are going to do the draft as a slow draft, so we'd want to get started within a week or so. Let me know if you are interested. My league is going to be $27 to enter, so I'd need that before any drafting is started.

I'd be open to doing one with just the guys on here as well.

MyFantasyLeague does it for $34, which is only $2 per participant.

I suppose a site like Yahoo could make it work too if the commissioner is on the ball and manually drops every player on the losing team each week. The site would have to handle slow drafts. I'd think coming up with a date that works for 17 people would be a nightmare.

Interested for up to $20 before any league fees. I'll try it out.

Still waiting for @Deezus to pay.

Hopefully a little public shaming will get him motivated.

Looking at the scoring and it says that the league is set up to score fractional points, however, the settings don't have any decimal places in place.

Just figured I'd give you a heads up @Hurl Bruce
