Last year was the first time I'd delved into the world of fantasy racing, and I even managed to win one league on NASCAR.COM's Fantasy Live. So if I can do decent, anyone can.
This thread could help us gain knowledge to do well in different leagues, and maybe, if enough are interested, we could set up a couple leagues just for the Garage Gang Forum participants as well...for more bragging rights. Not to mention, this type of discussion could also help the forum participants here in doing well in the SHR picks every week.
First, if this thread takes off and people contribute, it would be helpful to title your post with which league you're talking about, if it's specific to one or two. If it's a general statement or question, then no post heading would be needed.
An example would be...
FOX FANTASY, or
NASCAR.COM (who has two games...the Fantasy Live, or Streak To The Finish)
Just the simple heading, in all caps perhaps, or colored, at the beginning of your post, would allow for better communication in the thread, and it would eliminate the need for multiple threads for different leagues and sites.
I've also thought we could have our own private leagues in a couple sites. I'd be happy to set one up on both NASCAR.COM and FOX's sites. I know in NASCAR.COM it's a 25 member max, so if we happened to have more wishing to participate than 25, we'll just start a second one. Most of these sites allow you to be in multiple leagues. I think with collective knowledge, that we could have a blast in OUR leagues, while helping each other to dominate OTHER leagues we play in.
My thinking now is to see how many wish to join over the next few days, and I'll set it up and give instructions on how to join on Friday for these 2 sites.
If anyone (Schmoopy...hint hint ) has any other sites to recommend, or manage a league for us in, be sure to mention it.
Well, that's all I have for now on the idea. Any input is appreciated.
I'll start by seeing how many wish to be in a league, or multiple ones, together.
