To be fair, there is only one game on that evening and it's between the Cards and Bengals. Everything else is done. Up to you guys.

 

I'm down for the 23rd..i thought that that was after week 2...week 3 the starters play at least a half, and there is more chance for injury. I just wanted to be sure that week was over...so if you keep it the same I'm good with it...

 

The only other thing I am curious about is how are we going to know who kept whom...will we get a list, or will they just show up as unavailable come draft time. I personally would like a complete list, whether it be shown here on the forum or on the site, that way I can adjust my list accordingly.

I think everyone should have the same deadline (or 2 deadlines) for the keeper list so that no single person can have an advantage. Andy should determine a singular date and time by which the keeper list should be due, and reveal it AFTER the deadline has passed and everyone has submitted their list.

 

Yes, everyone, I repeat, EVERYONE, would love to have the other person's cards shown after all before they play their cards. But based on the keeper leagues I have been on, everyone submits it at the same time (whether it is once or twice), and THEN it gets revealed by the commish. If I know it is going to be submitted twice, I will withhold my true list and keep my true list for the last time it is submitted. So, that is why I feel it is best for you to make your keeper list based on what YOU want to do and adjust on the fly, like you would do in a normal live snake draft, no different.

I'd be more than up to join in on fantasy with other Colts fans! Count me in if a new league can be created. Right now I just have an ESPN account but I can open up a yahoo one no problem if need be.

 

These leagues are full but we are organizing a league and it has plenty of openings.  Please make a post in this thread to indicate your interest and we'll add you in.

I've sent them all reminders (and just sent Fx Stryker his "switching leagues" email) to the players. I'll send another one in a couple of days. The current teams that have not signed up (not including Fx Stryker) are:

 

Bodacious Mantises

Rubber Duckies

Knights in Armor

IndyD4U

Natural Bjorn Killer

Team Nice Dynamite

 

I'm not sure of their forum names, although I think Knights in Armor is Tknight24

 

The first two alternates are:

Akcolt

Valpo

Aw bummer, looks like I (Rubber Duckies) missed out. Thanks for the reinvite though, Andy. If any other spots reopen before the season let me know! I'll be on the forums more often now with the season starting back up soon.

Regarding keepers and the draft date, I'll address keepers first. 

 

Everyone can keep up to 2 keepers (which we all know now), and there is one keeper deadline and it is on August 17th. You can choose anytime before, but that is the FINAL DATE!

 

The draft will be the week after, sorry Juanjo, but I can't do it much earlier. Personally, I'd stay up because it's only going to be 1 or 2 in the morning. Draft should be done within 90 minutes. It's a late night but there's coffee :) 

The draft will be at the very end of Week 3 with only the final game being played.

I'm assuming you will reveal the keepers with an e-mail/post on August 18th (assuming all of us have submitted ours)?

Colt Strong is the only league with openings right now.  It's PPR though.

 

If you are interested please make a post in the linked thread and send me your E-mail via private message and I'll send you an invite.

Yes, I'll make a post here revealing who kept who and those players will not show up when it is time to draft.

Hello all,

 

It's that time of the year again; the time to rev up the engines for a new season of fantasy football. 

 

We've had two good seasons now, with last season being our first season under the Elite/Average Joes program. In the Average Joe's league, Dustin and Us and Them were the winners, meaning that they are going to be moving on into the Elite League. 

In the Elite league, hillbilliesfromhell (John Dee) and FX Stryker will be moving down into the Average Joe's league (which was ridiculously competitive). 

 

All teams have been sent a renewal email, and if you follow the easy instructions, you guys will be back in the league. Dustin, Us and Them, hillbillies and FX Stryker will get a different email soon directing you to the different leagues. How it will work from there, Dustin will have first choice at which of the vacant teams (from the 2 departing guys) that he wants, and Us and Them will take the other one. Hillbillies will have first choice at which team he wants in the Average Joe league (from the 2 departing teams). It's a switch; easy enough to understand.

 

I'd be surprised if every single team were to rejoin, so if you were not in the leagues last year, and you are interested this year, please post a comment in this thread showing your interest, and you will be placed on a waiting/alternate list. This list is important because.....

 

.... I expect every owner to be an active member of the league and to participate all the time. If this does not happen, the alternate/waiting list will come into play. Of course, we all have lives outside of the league (I hope), and there will probably be events or something every now and then. All I ask in those situations is just a courteous email a few days before the event letting me know. 

 

I haven't been on the forum much in the last week, I've just been way too busy, but what I plan on doing is setting up both leagues like I did last year and working with you guys to work on a functional draft date (and any other deadline). Last year we did it in mid-August; some guys liked after the preseason, so maybe we'll do that. Either way, we'll figure that crap out a bit later. 

 

I'm not sure if there's anything else I need to go over; a reminder to CHECK YOUR YAHOO EMAILS and to sign up into the league; THE QUICKER THE BETTER, and the faster I can get everything set up. 

 

So, who's ready for a great year?

 

Peace,

Andy

Its 2 maximum...Its up to you whether or not to keep 2, 1, or none. If you keep none, it will be a normal draft in the order that you finished (in reverse)..If you choose one keeper, you won't pick until the second round in your spot. If you choose to keep both keepers, then you won't draft until round 3.

 

Hope that helps

 

(me personally wish I could keep 7..lol)

I hate this..lol..I'm to co-commish, so I know it can't be done, but I want to keep 5-7 players..lol...I am having such a rough time between 3 players for sure and a possible 4th to keep...I have 1 top 3 QB...2 top 5 rb's and 1 super elite rec and one very good one. I'd also like to keep my D and Kicker..

 

AUUUUGHHHHHH!!!

 

I'm still debating on whether to keep both RB's or my QB and top RB...

 

Decisions..Decisions....

 

I'll probably change my mind 5 more times before the deadline...ughhhhhhh

Keepers are in, will announce who they are in a bit. Just setting up the draft now.

 

By the way, I'm going to publicly call them out for this. Some people did not keep keepers, that's cool because you have that option, but if you want to keep a guy and you missed the date, your time has passed. Also, to J-Ville Avengers, for keeping 3 players, I took out the worst guy. When it says up to 2 keepers, that doesn't mean take another one for the hell of it.

Now some great and funny times could start. Is it possible to make trades including players and draft picks before draft day?

 

Nope, not that I know of. I am not a big fan of draft day trades, personally, even if it is a fresh draft.

I like the fact that I will be the first one to pick two players (and consecutively) in the elite league draft :).

Pleasantly surprised by the amount of talent left on the board.

 

I'm kinda shocked, looks like a couple people never kept anyone. 9 players will come off the board in the elite league before the draft even "starts" and 18 players before my pick, lol

Actually you have the 3rd and 4th pick.  :)

Well I'm new in Avg. Joes and I ended up with the worst team from last year.  I however decided not to keep anyone.

 

Part of it was I didn't really have anyone that I felt was worth a first round pick.  But also I have the #1 pick anyways, so it would be in a sense foolish to do so.  I could have kept 1 player that was a borderline 1st/2nd round pick but I decided that it can't hurt because if for some reason that player was the best player left on the board after everyone did their keepers then I could always just pick him #1 overall anyways, so it's sort of pointless.

 

And I'm glad I chose that strategy because there are several players still left on the board that I have ranked over that player anyways.

    • I read that .... then reread it.......   Are you saying that he is a guaranteed starter?   Or there is no chance that he is the starter?   Its early, I havent finished my coffee.....  It might be my denseness       Goncalves would seem to have a real chance at RG.... IMHO  
    • A couple things that took place last year and throughout the off-season that I think will pay dividends this year on the defensive side of the ball.   Brents and Jones showed, in spurts, that they have the chops to play CB in this league and with a full season under their belt plus this off-season I think they will be a very solid tandem on the outside. Add in Flowers and his growth potential and a versatile rookie in Simpson I think the CB room is just fine and ready for the next step. Will they end up with more INT's and PBU's - I certainly think so.   Another coverage area that I think has improved is a full season and off-season of learning the LB spot for Ronnie Harrison and then the drafting of Jaylon Carlies and the singing of the UDFA Craig Young. All are former Safety's that have or had made the transition to LB and bring coverage skills with them and LONG arms - all three have 33" arms or longer which means wingspan and shutting down passing lanes. If the coaching staff isn't married to playing Zaire (Contract) and Speed (Veteran) on passing downs, then 2-3 of those fella's could play in sub packages and clog up passing lanes. They did cut bait with Shaq last year so I would hope that they play the kids that can actually cover versus the highest paid fella.   The addition of Latu, though he is just one man should also help speed up the QB's eyes and lead to more errant throws that could be picked off!??!   All three of those things tied together create a perfect storm of improvement in the weakest areas of our D last year.   As for Safety - I have mixed feelings about the FS spot and there are several 'what if' scenarios:   Cross could have something click and then the mental game meets up with his physical ability - which I feel like he played decent down the stretch last year (last 2-3 games)?   Thomas could return to his rookie form.   Daniel Scott could be a pretty good option but is also technically a rookie after sitting out all last year - though mental reps and walk throughs do help from time to time.   A really off the wall thought - perhaps they move Harrison back to SS and slide Blackmon to FS if the kids (Carlies & Young) prove capable as nickel and dime coverage backers?   Denbow is not the answer....... Dabo will be on year three of using the International Roster Exception..... Maybe they try Ameer Speed at FS with his size and speed combination? Maybe his college teammate Kendall Brooks earns a spot? Maybe Abraham or Simpson take FS and run with it? Both played that spot in college. Maybe Abraham proves he can play the NB and they slide Moore back to FS like he played in college?   Lots and lots of ifs and buts.........
    • Good question    Wiki simply says he's nicknamed AD, I wonder if it had to do with Hebrew pronunciation of the word Adonai, which means Lord.. maybe, it's just that his family or friends started calling him AD  
    • Fever get their 1st win over the Sparks. Clark hit a couple of 3s from real deep. 1 sealed the game late in the 4th.
    • Turner was afraid he was going to commit a 4th foul, so he couldn't be aggressive. He had 2 fouls within the 1st 4 minutes of the game. Questionable fouls.
