Confirmed for the new season are: Me, spartak, Vendor, miso, kiwi and Finn. From Last season, alfa and Agaliarept have yet to confirm their participation.

2 expansion teams to bring us to a total of 10 franchises would make it tougher/more fun depending on the way you look at it.

Week 1 game 1 is 7th September, so I'd ideally like to get the draft concluded by 31st August, that will give us time to arrange any trades etc before the big kickoff.

So firstly, we need to agree a deadline for entries, then a way of drafting.

For the draft, we can auto draft like last year, where the system picks players for us, or we can "live" draft, where as many of us as possible are online drafting at the same time, or we can do an offline draft, where we each make 1 pick at a time until the rosters are full.

Any thoughts?

I just want Jordan Howard.

Vendor - 16 Jul 2017 20:05:21 (#4 of 1066)

I have a thought. That thought is...

Which Jets players do you want Vendor?

I don't think you'll hav much of an issue getting any.

FinnTheHuman - 16 Jul 2017 20:07:51 (#6 of 1066)

Even Brandon Marshall didn't want to be a Jets player.

SteveFrench - 16 Jul 2017 20:08:39 (#7 of 1066)

I'd like to have a go this year, but I'll need help as I've not done it before.

Oh, there's another method of drafting - that's auction.

You each start with a budget of, say, $200, and bid on the players you want. No idea how we'd do that, with us spread all over the globe, but it's an option.

RustyAKALoveSquirrel - 16 Jul 2017 20:13:58 (#9 of 1066)

Daps - we use and it's standard scoring.

I would recommend researching average draft positions (ADP), and and what point to draft each position.

ADP varies from site to site, but you can fund some here:

Assuming you're in, and alfa and Aga join us again, that gives us 9. We need an even number of players, so either 1 or 3 more will get us started.

Vendor - 16 Jul 2017 20:14:15 (#10 of 1066)

Which Jets players do you want Vendor?

Joe Namath and Don Maynard to start with.

I was in the building steel and on the roof of the Dolphins' new HARD ROCK stadium last week putting an antenna up. I nearly went blind on the roof as they use super reflective white paint and it was boiling out.

I also parked right next to Dan Marino's spot as our comms cabinet was there.

SteveFrench - 16 Jul 2017 20:17:06 (#12 of 1066)

Thanks Rusty. I'll look at the rules.

There are also a few podcasts dedicated purely to fantasy. I listen to the official NFL fantasy live one, there's another by The s Football Guys(I think that's what they're called) which is meant to be good too.

I remember reading this thread from last year and not having the first clue what was happening.

Nothing has changed..

RustyAKALoveSquirrel - 17 Jul 2017 11:23:30 (#15 of 1066)

To be fair, that effect on you isn't exclusive to this thread.

misosoup100 - 17 Jul 2017 11:26:29 (#16 of 1066)


Oh it's already been brought!

CloakAndDagger - 17 Jul 2017 11:26:59 (#17 of 1066)

Ouch, Rusty. Ouch.

FinnTheHuman - 17 Jul 2017 11:43:09 (#18 of 1066)

Get a room you two.

spartak - 17 Jul 2017 13:53:08 (#19 of 1066)

Auto-draft please.

RustyAKALoveSquirrel - 17 Jul 2017 14:16:35 (#20 of 1066)

Any other votes? We can live draft and leave spar on auto if that's what everyone else wants to do
