ANNOUNCEMENT - We are ready to go!
The framework for both the thread and Google spreadsheet (permanent hyperlink at the top of the original post in this thread) has been completed, so you can sign up for the prediction league and already submit your week 1 picks (template in second post of this thread) as well as your bracket predictions (template in third post of this thread), if you so desire.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask or skim through the elaborate prediction league rules in the fourth post of this thread where virtually everything should be covered already.
The NFL season is scheduled to start on Thursday, September 10th when the reigning Super Bowl champions Kansas City Chiefs host the Houston Texans. That's in three weeks from now.
Personal note: I'd be surprised if we get 20+ players this year.
