Of a 48-team league, maybe.

Yeah, I am not wasting my 1st round pick on a silly QB, that's for sure. ;)

You know what I'm really looking forward to? Seeing how our now-three Pats fan owners draft. In years past the homerism has been covered by the fact that the Pats had lots of awesome fantasy players, so drafting them early didn't hurt them much. They've got a lot fewer awesome fantasy players this year, so...can you guys resist? ;)

Pats' aside, though, I think there are a good half-dozen players that are gonna go way too high in lots of drafts this year. Whose names I will not divulge beforehand, naturally.

I usually blacklisted all Patriots for my fantasy lineup each year. This season I will go in with no such prejudice. Having said that, Im still really hoping I dont get Brady. Running up the score is awesome for fantasy purposes, but gawd I hate it!

The draft is one week from today, people. One week. Sunday, August 11th, 1:30 PM Eastern Time. That's 10:30 AM for you West-Coasters.

Am thinking about auto drafting this year. I seem to have a far better knack for drafting baseball teams than football. I'll be around though, so most likely I'll be there live.

Autodraft willingly? And miss your chance to take Russell Wilson two rounds too early? ;)

I just found out I may not have internet access on the 11th, so it looks like autodraft my be my future too :(

I just set up my pre-draft rankings all the way up to my top 250, so even if I have to auto-draft it's still all "my guys" if you will.

3 days people!!!!!!

Ive never won the MoFo Fantasy Football league championship nor have I been to it. Neither have some other old timers, but Im gonna focus in on this particular season like a cross between Mr. Spock & Ace Rothstein (Deniro in Casino. Characters real nickname in real life was Lefty. Go figure.) Uh, so yeah, Im gonna have incredible focus this year.

No more Patriot blacklist, gonna be more choosy in trades, not give away the farm, and it would be a good idea to not trade away my first round draft pick again. Always have, usually netting me at least 2 good starters, but regardless of that math I must discard that strategy as Ive never won in the big show.

The idea of the name "PlasticPads&IronMen" is kind of a ripoff of an old strategy boardgame with 19th century naval ships "Wooden Ships & Iron Men". Love that name, and my slogans from the Russell Crowe flick "Master And Commander". "Run like smoke and oakum!", what that means Im not completely sure. Has a nice ring to it though and at least sounds like its got some balls to it. Hell, the children in that movie were harder than I think I'd be! :yup:

TWO DAYS everyone. The draft is this Sunday at 1:30 PM ET, which is 10:30 west coast time.

woot woot woot!

You guys better draft [insert player I don't want] early on, because I am gunning for him.

Yoda 08-09-13 11:24 AM

Re: MoFo Fantasy Football 2013 - Draft Time and Settings
 
Hey thanks for the tip I'll definit...hey, wait a second. I know what you're doing. I think.

I'm used to playing on ESPN, never played on Yahoo. Is there any major differences I should be aware of? Also, will we know the draft order before draft day? And do we have any rules regarding the waiver wire/free agency that is out of the norm?

Yoda 08-09-13 11:35 AM

Re: MoFo Fantasy Football 2013 - Draft Time and Settings
 
Well, the Yahoo draft room is way, way less advanced than ESPN's, but that's about it. We learn the draft order about 30 minutes before the draft, and it's randomly determined.

We use a rolling waiver priority list. I've played on ESPN as well and I don't think it's out of the norm, no, but just to be safe you might wanna browse the help section, too.

Oh, and I moved the trade waiting time from 2 days to 1, like we have in baseball this year. I think we got a lot of calls for this last year so just lemme know if there's any objection; I'm assuming there won't be, though. Though as always, remember that it's 1 day AFTER the trade is accepted. So if you accept something Saturday night, it won't go through until Monday.

That all sounds good, and pretty much exactly like I'm used to playing. The trade waiting time thing being 1 day is awesome, I really hate waiting for trades to go through.
