So we finally have a complete 8 man league and now we need to setup a time for a draft and go over basic rules, and scheduling.

Now week 2's first game is Sunday, so really anytime this week would probably work for the draft.

As for the scheduling i want to have the championship game on week 16 just so we're no as effected by the stars who sit out week 17 to prepare for the playoffs. And right now i have the top 4 teams making the playoffs. with single elimination and thus it will only last 2 weeks and will begin week 16.

So what do you guys think, particularly on a draft time?

Doesnt matter to me.. I'll be ready to outdraft you mfers whether its at 2am or 6pm

I have no idea what I am talking about

Tonight

Prob out of the question considering some of the league might not even log on to see this thread for a day or two.

As long as it's after 5 (can't get it at work), and not between 8:45-9:15 tonight or tomorrow I'm good.

Bail, are your players are belong to me.

how long will this take?

vikingpride
09-14-2010, 07:01 PM
I did a 12 person snake draft with about 4 auto drafters (guys didn't show up so computer did it for them) and it took about an hour and half.

So between an hour to an hour 15 prob.

Edit: Actually i think the 12 person draft only took like 1 hour 15 minutes. So we can prob do it in about an hour.

If I have no idea what I am doing.. would an auto draft do a better job for me?

vikingpride
09-14-2010, 07:15 PM
If I have no idea what I am doing.. would an auto draft do a better job for me?

Ummm wouldn't really matter either way.

An autodraft will essentially take the highest ranked guy available who fills a need on your team.

If you do it yourself you'll still be able to see the rankings and pick who ESPN has ranked as the top guys. And if you do it yourself it will allow you to maybe add depth to a position like RB (pretty much the top fantasy spot) if someone falls in the draft even if you already have a RB. Where as an autodraft wouldn't necessarily take that extra RB and would instead fill another need on the team even if it was a position like TE which is one of the easier positions to fill.

So yeah i'd recommend doing it yourself. Worse case scenario you could just pick the top ranked guys at each position and it would be the same as the autodraft would have done.

Aslong as it isn't this weekend I will be up for it.

vikingpride
09-14-2010, 09:04 PM
Yeah we'd have to get it in before the weekend.

Tomorrow would be ideal for me as i have nothing going on at all, aside from the fights that night. What do you all think?

Brad.Taschuk
09-14-2010, 09:21 PM
Tomorrow works for me, so long as it falls after 5 and outside of sexy time.

Like 7 pm ET?

Keep in mind i have no clue what timezones others are in. lol

Aaron

I'm going to a buddies place to watch UFN, and it starts @ 8pm...so i'd much rather start at 6ET

I'm going to a buddies place to watch UFN, and it starts @ 8pm...so i'd much rather start at 6ET

Thats fine with me.

EDIT: I currently have the draft tentatively scheduled to start at 6 pm et tomorrow. That can change if it doesn't work for someone though.

Tripod
09-14-2010, 10:21 PM
6et is gud

Tripod
09-15-2010, 03:29 AM
Uhhhh....I just fail calculated time. I'm on the west coast....so 6et would be terribad for me. If most of yall are east coasters, I don't think tomorrow will work out at all...I'm only available after 8:30 pacific....so 11:30 eastern

vikingpride
09-15-2010, 04:33 AM
Actually i just realized it would prob not work for me either as i have to be somewhere thats not here at the time. lol

I could do 11:30 pm et though. Of course i'm sure that would be hard on alot of other people.

Tripod
09-15-2010, 04:38 AM
lol...friday is even harder fail for me. Driving up to vegas with some friends...

Wed after 11:30pm et or Thursday after 9pm et are probably my only times. If that doesn't work for everyone, I'm ok with just auto'ing.

vikingpride
09-15-2010, 05:18 AM
Friday is just a day i put so it wouldn't auto it for everyone 2morrow. haha

Not official or anything, just pretty much the last say i want to do it by.

Aaron
09-15-2010, 08:15 AM
can't do it tonight that late...tomorrow at 9pm ET is doable tho

Brad.Taschuk
09-15-2010, 12:06 PM
If we can make it Thursday at 9:30 instead of 9, I'm good for that.

vikingpride
09-15-2010, 06:37 PM
9:30 is fine with me.

southpaw447
09-15-2010, 08:13 PM
I could do it tonight or tomorrow night

vikingpride
09-15-2010, 08:24 PM
Alright, so right now we're leaning towards Thursday at 9:30 pm (ET).

southpaw447
09-15-2010, 08:29 PM
Sounds good just as long as I don't miss Jersey Shore ;)

vikingpride
09-15-2010, 08:40 PM

What time does that garbage start?

10pm

vikingpride
09-15-2010, 09:12 PM
10pm

This Draft will prob last about an hour.

So you'll be forced to do one of the following

A) Skip Jersey Shores (recommended) lol

B) Watch Jersey Shores and miss the draft

C) Do the first part of the draft and than leave to watch Jersey shores. If you leave mid way the auto draft will take over for your remaining picks.

D) DVR Jersey shores or watching a later airing.

E) Do some sort of combination of the above suggestions.

There foolproof advice. haha

Brad.Taschuk
09-16-2010, 12:28 PM
You can't watch Jersey Shore and make a draft pick every 5 minutes? Or watch Jersey Shore later on mtv's website (with 15 second commercial breaks rather than 15 minute commercial breaks)?

I'm gonna be watching Bellator and drafting simultaneously.

vikingpride
09-16-2010, 12:53 PM
Yeah i doubt jersey shores requires someones full attention or brain to power to grasp the subtle nuances and overall humor. lol

Aaron
09-16-2010, 01:09 PM
I'm gonna be watching Bellator and drafting simultaneously.

same

9:30 please

vikingpride
09-16-2010, 01:36 PM
Yep thats what i have it currently scheduled as. And to be clear thats 9:30 ET, so in about 9 hours from now.

And FYI it's always to good to enter a bit early just to make sure it'll work and everything loads up.

Edit: And to hell with Jersey Shores, Always Sunny premiere is tonight. I'll have to DVR that though as the gruesome twosome needs my undivided attention. lol

bail3yz
09-16-2010, 09:48 PM
Jersey Shore ... pffff.. so gay..

I wouldnt blame you if you were gonna auto draft to watch a good show like It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia

southpaw447
09-16-2010, 10:20 PM
Okay so how does this draft work. Are we doing it here or on the EPSN website?

Brad.Taschuk
09-16-2010, 10:24 PM
espn website

when you go to the league page there's a big red bar that says stuff about the draft

Superman55
09-16-2010, 10:56 PM
Can't get to the league page for some reason? It says I am not in a fantasy league on ESPN -.-

bail3yz

whats PF and PA stand for?

and how come we already have people with wins and losses?

vikingpride
09-16-2010, 11:33 PM
WTF, yeah i've never had a draft after a season has started, let me see if i can adjust things.

Points for

points against.

Superman55
09-16-2010, 11:34 PM
Im in the league section, but when I got to the messageboard, it tells me I am not a league member? Also, why am I 0-1 lol.

bail3yz
09-16-2010, 11:34 PM
Dont do it.. I have a win.. and brad has a loss.. HAHAHAHA!

Brad.Taschuk
09-16-2010, 11:36 PM
Yeah, but I have like twice as many points as everyone but Tripod.

When we play, you'll see what happens when you fuck a stranger in the ass bail.

vikingpride
09-16-2010, 11:43 PM
This is so stupid.

I don't think it was ever an option to change which week to start the league and if there was, which i never recall seeing it's gone now.



however i'll make it so everyone makes the playoffs, so at least the one loss won't hurt.

edit: Nevermind Tripod helped me, so we're good.

Tripod
09-16-2010, 11:48 PM
Yeah, but I have like twice as many points as everyone but Tripod.

Hence why I called you #2. But I'm the clear #1.


But this is sad, my other fantasy team with two less positions and 4 more teams scored more points than 5 of yall. Gon' be easy season yo.

---------- Post added at 07:47 PM ---------- Previous post was at 07:46 PM ----------

Oh, VP, there should be a way for you to adjust the scores for the games. That way, you can make all of us have a draw, but make sure we all draw with the same points so that isn't a valid tie breaker later down the road.

Will help make the season more meaningful than if everyone made the playoffs.

---------- Post added at 07:48 PM ---------- Previous post was at 07:47 PM ----------

Yeah, go to scoreboard -> week 1

Under the scores you should see a link that says adjust scoring.

Thanks man.

It allows me to add points, so i'm adding the inverse of w/e you score. So i added -110 to mine, so i got 0, etc.


And just because your other leagues had more week one doesn't mean much, the scoring could be diff. Plus week one was kind of crap. haha

edit: Okay everyone is 0-0-1 haha

vikingpride
09-19-2010, 02:35 AM
First real official week of our season begins tomorrow, and sorry SP, but i'm going to have to run a train on you this week.

Good luck to everyone though.

Brad.Taschuk
09-19-2010, 01:21 PM
Bail, I'm gonna talk to you all week this week. Ya heard.


(I don't know what any of that means)

However, I am planning on raping you until the room stinks.

Sorry Aaron, your getting haped.

Picking up Vick and playing him and playing Javid Best = Best idea ever.

vikingpride
09-19-2010, 08:12 PM
I'm up 28 right now, but SP has Brees and Reggie. And Brees scares me. lol

And i need Portis to outplay McNabb in OT.

Vernon Davis has to outscore Pierre Thomas by 29 points for Bail to beat me. I think I'm in pretty good shape.

Oh yeah, I talked to you Bail. I talked to you.

vikingpride
09-20-2010, 03:33 PM
I'm in a somewhat opposite situation in my other league, Brad. I need Davis and Meachem to combine for no less than 8 points less than Thomas. I'm currently up 9.

Tripod

Does he have anyone else playing?

If not then i'd be pretty confident that your all set, depending on how you league scores of course.

He's gonna prob get a few Extra points, and with the Saints primarily a passing team some of their drives are bound to stall in the redzone, thus giving you a field goal or two. So i'd be pretty confident.

Chris Berman is awesome. Him doing highlights on NFL Primetime used to be my favorite part of Sundays... then the Sunday game switched over to NBC or wherever it is now, and they stopped putting him on Primetime.

I still remember, "Alge Crumpler, making like plankton." Great line.

vikingpride
09-20-2010, 11:51 PM
Alright, i'm gonna need a semi-miracle here. A turnover or two by Brees and or Bush.

You could turn around your karma by donating some of your players to me though. :D

This Saints/9'rs game is pissing me off.

vikingpride
09-21-2010, 12:55 AM
Wow, seriously got shafted by that replay. If it's not called a good conversion then Brees never passes again in the game and i win. Right now i'm down 1 point because Brees got another drive and that big pass to Colston.

So yeah i was about 2 inches from winning this week.

Edit: Hoping ESPN has to adjust scoring and take some points from SP like they took points from me last night.

Mmm, highest score. My reign of FLD Fantasy football terror prevails. Champion last season, and gonna win another one.

Brad.Taschuk
09-21-2010, 08:56 AM
Yeah... because Jahvid Best is gonna get you 40 points every week.

Clearly me scoring 116 points with only 2 coming from the QB position was the most impressive performance of the week.

Superman55
09-21-2010, 10:04 AM
Maurice Jones-Drew only got me 2 points, so I can expect way more production from him instead of Jahvid in the coming weeks.

Tripod
09-21-2010, 06:21 PM
Don't feel like creating another thread...so I'll ask you guys here.

I got offered AP for Cutler and Bradshaw. Seems easy to take at first, but my league does offer 6 points/passing TD, which is actually a huge difference over the 4 in our league (and almost all standard ESPN leagues). In fact, if I only got 4 poitns per passing TD this past week in my money league, I would have lost.

Not only that, the only QBs on the waiver are Freeman, Sanchez, Bradford, Shaun Hill, Alex Smith, Jason Campbell...not exactly the pick of the litter.

I'd be left starting Orton, and my RBs would be Mojo, AP, Ryan Mathews.

I could strike a deal to get either Eli or Kolb from his team as well though...AP just sounds so tempting, just donno if my team can handle it.

If you have to pick up a QB, I suggest Freeman, he has been playing pretty well of late. Hasn't thrown a ton of Int's and has been pretty productive.

Tripod
09-21-2010, 06:56 PM
So you recommend I do the trade? Because I definitely want to, just nervous about it. Sanchez is also enticing.

Superman55
09-21-2010, 06:58 PM
Just do it lol. I've found the best way to win in fantasy football is to make crazy ass moves, if it was me, I would do it haha.

Tripod
09-21-2010, 07:12 PM
lol, I just did some math based on last year's total points.

3rd RB (saying AP gets third this year) averaged 16 points/game
16th RB (assuming Bradshaw gets 16) averaged 10.

6th QB (generous prediction for Cutler) averaged 20
14th QB (where Orton finished last year) averaged 15

So I get 1 point per game increase! Enough to sell me into doing it lol.

Brad.Taschuk
09-21-2010, 07:24 PM
Yeah, I'd do that trade, and probably pick up Sanchez ahead of Freeman. He's got more weapons, and the Jets have a better line and running game, so less pressure on him to do everything himself.

Tripod
09-21-2010, 08:02 PM
Yeah, gonna do it. Gonna be cool having AP and Mojo on my team.

And bail...wanna bet money on our game this week? :D

bail3yz
09-21-2010, 08:10 PM
sure, as long as we can bet enough so I can rent good players from everyone else for the game

:D

vikingpride
09-21-2010, 08:35 PM
The only thing i see that could hurt your team . Is the fact that Cutler is prob gonna put up numbers. His O-line sucks, but it's a martz offense and he'll be passing a ton and taking alot of shots down field and he still throws one of the best deep balls in the game.

And don't call complain about lil production from your stars this week. Chris Johnson gave me two damn points. And i was still an overturned call on a two point conversion away from winning this week.

Edit: And i'm taking you out this coming week, Aaron.
