The Loser League

I'm very busy today, but I have to take a moment to mention that the Football Outsiders second half Loser League starts this weekend, and you only have until Saturday to sign up. What's the Loser League?

It's time again to join in on the fun that is the Loser League. If you're no good at fantasy football, then this is exactly the league for you, because the goal is to pick players who are just as bad at real football as you are at fantasy football.
Sounds easy, right? Why not just draft the third-string quarterback? Well, it's more challenging than that. You have to pick players who are expected to play in the game, or you'll incur a hefty penalty. For each quarterback that attempts fewer than ten passes, running back that rushes fewer than eight times, or wide receiver that catches fewer than two passes, you're penalized 15 points.

You can join the league here.

It only takes a few minutes, and you can't update your lineup so it requires no maintenance time, but you have to be very careful not to take a player who is so bad that he will get benched later in the year.

It gives you a chance to root for (or against) guys like Antonio Chatman, Mike Williams, David Carr, and Paul Edinger. Give it a shot, there's even a prize.
