The current draft setting is: Random Snake - a snake draft order will be randomized 30 minutes prior to your draft time.

Too many new people to set the draft order?  Makes sense.  Thanks.

Every year, there will be 2 new people since the bottom two go to the Joe's league. Plus, there has never been a year when all the other 10 had returned. It was always 8 or 9 at best making at least 3 new faces every year if I remember right. So I can see why we do it that way.

I can actually randomly set the draft order any time I want and make it stick so people know where they are picking, I tested it yesterday, if you look on the main page of the league you can see the notification where the order was randomized. Could be interesting to set it early for mocks and such... hmmm

If I wanted to get in on this, which I do, how would I go about doing so?

 

This league is full, but check out the Joes League here:

 

 

If you come in top 2 you get to move up to this league.

Ya I'm not a commish for an nfl league bit it sounds the same as an espn league. The only thing is,  the randomized may so be hidden from us.  Haven't looked yet.  If you cab see it,  could you post it?

I am fine with setting it early or saving it for the element of surprise. Just leave it the way it is, I don't want anymore voting :)

Just a reminder, voting is over as of Monday August 15th!

O.K., early setting of draft order for me. 

Just cause that's what I'm used to.   :)

Not a rule change,  shouldn't need to vote.  Easier to strategize knowing your position.

It's set in stone!

 

The only change for this season over last season is that if #6 should play #1 in the playoffs if they both make the 2nd round.

 

Looking forward to a great season everyone!

So, are we going to randomize and set our draft order now? It seems like a lot of folks would like that to happen. Let us know. Thanks.

i don't see the harm in knowing early, let me think about it.

 

So, have you decided yet? It is 1 week before the draft. :thmup:

I think it's just too late in the game to notify everyone of their draft position to make it fair in mocks and such, lets just roll with it as it is for this season.

It is a week before the draft, you would be notifying everyone and/or posting here, but somehow it wouldn't be fair in a mock draft?  What's so important about mock drafts?  If everyone is notified, then its fair, is it not?

The point being not everyone is checking this thread, It is hard to get a hold of everyone.

I might have to do the draft through my phone. Hopefully the app works better than it did last year.  Auto drafted me two kickers.

5 hours until I draft a championship level team :)

 

I'm totally lost, haven't done any research, or mocked anything, and IMHO it's kinda needed this year, I don't know who's starting at RB on over half the teams, and who the WR1 is on half the teams.

 

I'm gonna fly by the seat of my pants tonight, but i'm feeling lucky :)

    • I get what you're driving at BLS. I just remember the nightmare known as Curtis Painter in 2011. Translation: Quality backups aren't that easy to find & there's no such thing as an elite 2nd stringer field general. They don't really exist meaning all backup QBs have flaws.    In layman's terms, when the face of your franchise goes down; you're basically screwed that calendar yr anyway because veterans off the street are injury prone with age & recovery issues & anybody worthy of your attention is locked down financially on other team rosters for the short term future. 
    • You can say that again WM. It's like some people think Jacoby will be great just because he was in the same room Brady was studying film a few times.    Look, I respect the hades out of Brady & his SB consistency. I also was amazed at how quickly Jacoby used wrist band numbers to execute our offense in short order. It just bothers me when players & coordinators under BB's coaching tree get all these job interview opportunities  & then when they leave Foxboro their clout fades too.    If anybody breaks this trend of leaving the Boston net & succeeding, Josh McDaniels will be the one to shatter this stigma IMO. [Yes, I think Josh will flourish in his 2nd HC gig too once that preferred vacancy becomes available. This happens a lot with your 2nd shot at the helm running a NFL program.]
    •   The owner of the company says 30 of 32 NFL teams use his service.       I'm sorry he didn't bring out the paper work to show it to you.     But typically,  unless there is reason to believe he's lying,  the man,  in this case,  Cris Collinsworth, gets the benefit of the doubt.   As opposed to you,   who doesn't like the service,  and just denies,  denies,  and denies.....   Oh,  and as for Chip Kelly......     Rich Dudes have lots of ways of making money.    They typically don't chose to make it by buying part of a company that, in the past,  they have openly said negative things about.      Goes to credibility.      They can invest their money elsewhere.   Kelly bought in because he likes what he sees.  
    •   None of those people talk in the 3rd person seriously.   If any of those three talk in the third perosn,   they are mocking themselves and others who do.   And having worked with on-air people who have huge talents,  I think I can say confidently that none of these three guys has an ego the way the current occupent of the White House does.     Not even close.     That man is in a league of his own.   Apologies for the political talk.    
    •     So far,  I confess I don't think of RG3 when I watch Brissett.      I think he's much more of a pocket passer than RG3 ever was.    I saw RG3 as an athlete who could play QB.      I see Brissett as a QB who has some athleticism.   Brissett is taller,  bigger,  heavier.     Not nearly the athlete but much more a physical presense.   6'4" 235 vs. 6'2" and 220.     I think Brissett is going through the normal young QB growth that most every young QB goes through.     I'd expect over time he makes fewer and fewer mistakes.       As for what we'd get for Brissett in a trade....    I don't know if you spend any time in the chat room during a game,  but this past Monday,  I spent some time there,  and when Brissett was good (1st half)  the Colts fans there had us gettng at least a 1st round draft pick for him,  and possibly even more!     I think a Day 2 pick is not far off,   he was taken in the 3rd round and demonstrated a good level of competence in a short amount of time.      I suppose it's possible he'd get only a 4,    but I don't see Brissett getting traded for a 5.     I think Ballard would much rather keep him than trade him for that.
