If you’ve always wanted to play fantasy football, but loathe the NFL, this is your chance.

Update: League is full. Thanks to alec, Joseph, Casey, NCIrish, Jack, Jacob, The Emperor, deanne, John, Ted, Dillon, daltoncgross, eLrOy, gabe, Chris, Robert, Adam, Conor and Brian for joining us. I anticipate having openings for our Year One keeper league. If you want to take over a team, email me at jude1128 at gmail dot com

Yahoo! launched a new fantasy product for college football last year, and we’d like you to join us for our second season.

One Foot Down has created a free College Fantasy Football league. We’re not allowed to offer prizes, but smack talk is perfectly acceptable.

We’ll have 20 teams comprised of players from the Power Five and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish (65 teams total). There’s 15 player slots, with nine starting positions: quarterback, running back, running back, wide receiver, wide receiver, tight end, flex (wide receiver/running back/tight end), kicker and a defense/special teams.

The season starts Aug. 24, so we’ll be drafting at 9:30 p.m. Eastern on Aug. 22 to accommodate our potential west coast players. You’ll get 90 seconds to make your pick and we’ll hopefully have this whole thing wrapped up before Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Fallon or Jimmy Kimmel go on air.

Invite link here.

Don’t delay. The league tends to fill up fast.

I’ve also recently sent invites to our Year One participants. If they’re not interested in continuing this year, I will offer an opportunity to anyone who gets shut out of this league to take over one of last year’s teams and “keep” some of their players. So, if that’s you, email me to reserve your spot.

The rest is just details. Questions? Leave them below.
