    Anyone wanna play GM and draft a team? Play against your fellow BR.net mates and put some money on it?

    I started a MFL10 league and it's only $10 to play fantasy football.


    MFL10 is a best ball league is a fantasy football draft only league. The rules are fairly simple. Draft a team of 20 players, each week your lineup will be set based on your best scorers at each position. The lineups consist of: QB, RB, RB, WR, WR, WR, TE, Flex (RB/WR/TE), and DEF. Scoring is full point per reception. Once you draft you’re done, there are no waivers or trades. Whoever’s team scores the most total points for the season wins. Simple right?

    If you’ve never played before you should. It is a good primer for FF season and it's something to do during this time of year.

    Here is a summary of what MFL 10s leagues are all about:

    • Slow Email style drafts with up to 8 hours per pick. These are NOT Live Drafts.
    • 16 or 20 Rounds with a Serpentine Draft. The draft order is randomly assigned after the league fills up.
    • The draft can last as long as 2 weeks to complete all 16 or 20 rounds.
    • Starting Lineup = 1 QB, 2 RB, 3WR, 1 TE, 1 Flex (RB/WR/TE), 1 Defense. There are no Kickers in Draft-Only, but a Kicker starter in Weekly Management.
    • There is no limit to the number of MFL public leagues you can join, but one team per league is the rule.
    • For Draft-Only Leagues, your best lineup is automatically used each week. Weekly Management leagues require a weekly lineup and add/drops can be made..
    • Refer to the links on the left for details about Scoring Rules, Terms of Service, etc.
    An easy $10 Entry Fee buys you a chance at a $100 Cash Prize for a first place finish in your MFL 10s league.

    So...there's no actual chess involved.


    It's just a clever name.


    I didn't open this thread before now because I couldn't imagine how the hell we'd manage a fantasy chess league.

    I mean, I don't know not one single professional chess player.







    Certainly not Reggie. :rimshot:

    Well, now that I've given the site $10, it's telling me I don't qualify for the fucking thing.

    I give up.

    At least until I've eaten, and possibly fixed a drink.
