Fantasy Football 2017 Draft Finished!

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

....well it's July.....training camps about to start and all the football talk starts to stir up again.....it means I gotta start posting again right? :P

So what better time to start up a thread to see who's coming back?? Probably the usual cast of characters for the most entertaining psuedo-live draft on the planet!!!

The general plan here is to have this period between now and August to allow for rule and scoring changes, suggestions and votes and all that.....and start the draft on August 21 (don't blame me, Gen Con runs late this year and I'm not dealing with this during my ONE week of vacation all year round).....17 days.....17 rounds....let's GOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!

We've done it before....and between cell phones and social media it CAN be done again!

 

**edit**

 

oops...it's 15 rounds, and one round shaved off for keepers.....so it's REALLY 14 rounds in 17 days....this will be a BREEZE!

So.... its been scary quiet here.. Aug 1st is Tuesday I believe, are all the teams back?  When will we begin the process of figuring out the draft order and keepers? I'm assuming that has to be done prior to your vacation?

Usually the pre-season format goes:

-- rule changes?

 .....bickering.....

-- draft order

 ......bickering.....

-- keeper selection (usually with draft order)

 .....bickering

-- Gen Con

 .....bickering mixed in with OMG WE DON'T HAVE ENOUGH TIME panciking....but more bickering

-- people jump the gun and draft before I get back

 .....more bickering

-- then actual draft

......and of course..... bickering.....

A. Nothing to discuss until the draft order (and for me nothing till the draft since I have a no brainer keeper) except:

B. There does need to be a roll call to make sure everyone is doing this again.  Manta, Henriqued, Masked, RSC, Laflamne and Clown haven't logged into the board in months. Price of the Devils being a perpetual loser - though at least CRASHER can wrangle down the latter two easily.

lol I completely forgot Masked actually won last year till I saw the gold trophy next to his team name :blink: (only remembered CRASHER's 12-1 that went splat in the playoffs :P)

Not that I was closely paying attention after elimination with two straight seasons of early exits after a bunch of playoff years, though missing last year was a bit of a fluke with the second highest scoring team.  Admittedly it's a little hard for me to get juiced up this fantasy season both with the Jets' awfulness and the feeling of 'been there, done that' in FF after winning a league three straight years - here twice, then my other main league two years ago, and also winning a few bucks the only time I tried a money league last year.  But I'll get into this one again once we get going.

After I crashed and burned last year in both of my leagues I'm ready to get going, have to erase that awful memory...

I wouldn't miss the bickering and Manta's 5 round early reaches for nothing...count me in!

Every year, post-draft...  I love my team.
Every year, I barely qualify as competitive.  

I'd love to argue that we should have weekly waivers - especially since we have FA keepers.

Since GEN Con starts in a week I'm guessing we have to figure out the draft order now so we can actually start on the 21st?

 

Can someone list the keeper options?  I completely forgot who was worth keeper status from my team...

 

Thanks!

We'll see about that.  It's farcically easy to renew and then forget/not care about it months in advance.  Especially since it was an auto-renew, I don't remember actually doing anything to reactivate being in the league.  A few of the stragglers that usually post in the preseason haven't come around yet.

Well let's see if we can nudge this along now shall we??

 

After a proper randomizing (thank you Lackey Machine) I rolled up the pre-draft selection process (reminder this is not where you pick but the order we will choose where we pick):

1. Red - picking #1 (keeping Terrell Pryor Sr for a 15th rounder)

2. Manta - picking #2 (keeping Justin Tucker for a 12th rounder)

3. Henriqued - picking #3 (keeping Jay Ajayi for a 14th rounder)

4. Ayl - picking #12 (keeping Cameron Meredith for a 15th rounder)

5. MJ - picking #11 (keeping Mike Thomas for a 15th rounder)

6. LCB - picking #4 (keeping Marcus Mariota for a 10th rounder)

7. Masked - picking #5 (keeping Kenny Britt for a 15th rounder)

8. Laflamme - picking #10 (keeping Matt Ryan for a 10th rounder)

9. Me - picking #9 (keeping Melvin Gordon for a 6th rounder)

10. Son of red - picking #8 (keeping Odell Beckham Jr for a 1st rounder)

11. Brian - picking #6 (keeping Tyreke Hill for a 15th rounder)

12. Has -picking #7 (keeping Jordan Howard for a 15th rounder)

 

If everyone could just check in and saw they saw this, that would be awesome....if not I start PM-bombing this weekend :P

(you can declare your keeper now too, I don't care but you are not obliged to until all the spots are claimed)

I count five stragglers lol...but I don't think PM's going to work on RSC or Henriqued since they haven't actually logged into the board for a while - RSC since last September, Henriqued since March - unless they still somehow have e-mail notifications set to ping when they get a PM.  DevsMJ has been lurking on the board but hasn't checked in here for whatever reason (he always seems to have one foot in and one foot out anyway).

Manta and Masked haven't been around the board in a while either, if the draft loses them that's 85% of the reason for trash talking out the window.

Masked responded with a classic "living in the past" text, so he's in....so four :)
