    Everyone,

    We have finished the draft and ready to begin the season this coming week. Here is a few things to keep in mind:

    1. We start the following each week or you get 0 points: QB, RB, WR, TE, K, 3 RB-WR-TE, 1 DL, 1 LB, 1 DB, 2 DP

    2. We have 22 total on our roster (meaning you can still add one additional player), however there is NO IR spot this season, since we have basically added 2 additional roster spots.

    3. Adds/Drops will be done using a waiver process, where the worst team gets first shot at a player and so on.

    4. Line-ups must be set 5 minutes prior to the game being played.

    5. Scoring system should be correct, if you see any mistakes, please let me know now - cause middle of the season I'm going to just say "sorry, asked for you to do the discount double check on them."

    6. Keeper rules are now in effect for next year, where you are penalized for keeping a player (lost draft pick).

    7. Trades may involve future draft picks and the trade section of the website will allow you to input those, so they will automatically be updated on the draft board next season.

    Let's have a fun season!!!

    Let the smack talking begin!!!

    Draft Recap

    Master Drafter

    When the dust settled from the draft, LongDongFoSho were left on top. Their starters project out to score more points than any other team this year. LHF made some savvy pickups in London Fletcher, Pierre Garcon, and Julius Peppers. Fletcher was rated as the 2nd best pickup in the draft (behind only Zach Brown).

    The Matt Millen Award Goes To...

    Coach Fade might want to ask Coach LHF for some help next year, as their starting squad is ranked dead last in expected points. Coach Fade reached for several players, including Michael Vick, Eric Berry, and Kiko Alonso. Alonso was rated as the 2nd worst selection in the draft (linebackers' expected points are significantly undervalued in this league compared to typical leagues).

    Tale of Two Drafts

    Coach Rook was apparently saving their good picks for last. While they ranked 9th in expected value added during the first half of the draft, they ranked 4th over the last 11 picks. In the first half, Coach Rook reached for several players, including Brian Cushing. They turned things around in the second half with picks like Tyler Eifert, who we had pegged as the best value of any tight end drafted.

    Babes in the Woods

    Pete Chilcutt have to be hoping that youth will serve, as they ended up with the youngest team in the draft. Their squad includes whipersnappers such as Christine Michael (22), Cordarrelle Patterson (22), and Knile Davis (21). That strategy didn't really pay off, as Pete Chilcutt are projected to have the 4th worst starting lineup in the league.

    Sorry Fade had to post that!!!!!!!!!!!!

    So, is the waiver wire open?

    It shows a message that my commish hasn't set up the wire for my league when I attempt to search for players thru the site.

    Rook, I switched the add/drop system from waivers to "owners may add players" so that people can do their add/drops over the next couple of days to get ready for the season without any waiting around foolishness.

    Once the season starts, let's go back to the waiver system.

    Hope that's okay.

    Can you still transfer everything to Yahoo anyways? I feel like you need to practice just in case we ever need you to do it in the future. Thanks, let me know when it's done.

    Your line-ups need to be set 5 minutes prior to the gametime. To set your line-ups just drag a player to whatever spot you want - any issues, send me your line-up and I can set it for you.

    As for two RB's, if you noticed on the top of your roster page in the red box, red writing, you have the following error message:

    You have 14 active players. You must have 13.
    You have 2 active Running Backs. You must have 1.

    Therefore you have to remove one of the RB's and put him on the bench. Once you do that you won't have that problem any further.

    Does moes have time to do his own recap of the draft?

    I believe the one CBS sent out was midway through when Rook was adjusting picks for a few of us.

    Yeah we got that same recap during the draft.

    Oh well. It won't be life or death if we don't get one from moes.
