The 2018 NFL regular season is less than two weeks away, and that means it’s time to turn our attention to actual, real football games!
Excuse me. One moment. Sorry, give me just a second.
Scratch that. I’ve been told now that the third preseason game has been played, we’re actually supposed to turn our attention to fantasy football, a made up thing that gives people the false sense of responsibility and achievement for lucking their way into a decent football roster.
We here at Pride of Detroit have a tradition of holding a fantasy league every year, and while I never participate—because fantasy sports are the devils’ work—I have no problem feeding your addiction. I’m your pusher man.
This year, Jerry Mallory will again serve as the commissioner for the league. There are a few notable changes to the league this year, however.
- We are moving from Yahoo to ESPN.
- It will be a 16-team league this year
The time of the draft is Tuesday September 4 at 9 p.m. ET. So if you cannot participate in the draft or cannot set your auto-draft preferences by then, I would kindly ask you not to sign up for the draft.
How to sign up
There are currently 13 open spaces in the league. If you are interested in joining, please say so in the comment section below. Priority will be given to users who have been around the longest and are most active in the community.
Please make sure you have an ESPN account and your Pride of Detroit email is current. This will be the only way I can send you an invite, so please check that before signing up.
You have until Friday, August 31 at 11:59 p.m. ET to submit your request to join the league. I will send out invitations on Saturday. I will also send out a couple waitlist emails in case someone drops out or fails to sign up for the league once invited.
If you aren’t chosen to participate in this year’s league, we fully encourage you to set up other Pride of Detroit fantasy leagues in the FanPost section of the website.
Happy fantasy drafting, you monsters.
