Worst idea ever.

But you would get the very first second pick!

Is anyone else not able to find where to go into the draft room? I only see a thing talking about how we're on autodraft again.

Your league's Autopick Draft, your roster will remain empty until after your league's draft.

this is screwed. I rest it to live draft , and now it's BACK on autodraft. We are borked tonight.

We can always do it tomorrow, or next weekend. I know we have a game on Tuesday, but we can always start our season on week 2, or include the totals manually.

The only way I can do it tomorrow is if it's done around noon, EST. Otherwise almost any night this week would be fine.

We will be drafting Monday night at 8:15PM EST. It will be a live draft, Yahoo allowing,
set your auto-draft selections so you aren't selecting blind if you can't make it.

I think it'd be fun if everyone voted for who they thing will win this year, based just on the draft results (other than themselves).

My pick is The Losers. Solid draft work.

I think Kwea has a strong shot as well though.

Everyone might want to take a peek at their lineups right now for this week and hit the waiver wire if necessary. Lots of people drafted started defensive players who are injured.

I think Losers, and then Lyr. I wanted the Danny A. Brady matchup, but you got to each right as I was about to take them.


Although the Manning/Welker connection is great too. [Big Grin]

I just saw the Draft Report Card thing and it's pretty clever on Yahoo's part.

I might have gotten the best overall draft report, but Losers are actually projected to go undefeated this season.

Teams drafting 11 and 12 are projected to go 2 and 1 in the standings. I think we actually got an advantage because of the really really weak RB depth this year. We both got 2 of the top 14 RBs, where as the first two picks got 1/2 and then 23 and 24. But the dropoff in the middle of the second round is pretty huge. Still, having Martin and AP make up for a lot of that.

An interested draft. Really shows that a top flight draft position isn't all its cracked up to be.

This year...maybe. Overall though it can make or break a team. Not every year is this thin.

I bet I go more than 6-6 though. [Big Grin]

Superstation didn't do very well on his defense drafting again this year. My not being here really damaged that, and I partially blame the change of draft day (though I would have missed a lot of Saturday, too). He picked four players that aren't even on teams. He likes the idea of IDPs, but he sure doesn't put in the time necessary. He'll be making a lot of moves Thursday, I'd wager.

There's a TON of IDP talent still on the board.

I see at least three linebackers left that probably should have been drafted by someone. He shouldn't have a problem finding top notch guys for that position. Though Lavonte David is a solid linebacker pick.

DE and DL might be a little trickier, but he has a great back in Patrick Peterson, just needs to move him down.

He'll be fine by Thursday night.

The waiver system doesn't let you put in a pickup more than once. That means I have to guess which ones will go through and which won't, because I can't put in a backup. I don't like that.

(In case it wasn't clear: I put in a request for player Z, dropping player A. My second choice is player Y. I would normally put in a request for player Y, dropping player A. Then another request for player Y, dropping player B. This would allow me to possibly pick up both players, but if I only get one of them then I drop the player I most wish to drop.)

(If that wasn't clear, sorry, no can make better.)

Okay Kwea, it looks like you made the right choice getting the Welker-Manning connection over the Amendola-Brady connection.

Monster numbers.

Superstation better learn to shut up pretty soon. You can't be smack-talking so early in the game. Part of me is glad D. Thomas stepped up, though of course I hope Superstation still wins. I'd just like him to learn some humility along the way.

Heckuva start for you, too, Kwea. Amendola-Brady could still do ok, but I don't suspect I'll see anyone topping Manning's numbers this week. Maybe his brother will try to show him up, which would be good for Mooselet in his league.

Manning's numbers are like once a decade numbers. No one beats that this week. Brady-Amendola just need to meet their targets.

But if they want to put up monster numbers, I'll take it. Thomas owners got lucky on that last play, really lucky. Actually they got lucky on the other TD as well.

Anyone watching this packers/niners game? This is good stuff.

I don't know how your scoring works but if you have Kapernick, Davis and Boldin, you might have a shot at Manning.

Looks like Superstation couldn't pull it out, but it's barely within stat correction range. We'll have to see. Either way, good match. Sup's gonna hate himself if he loses because he pulled out a "probable" Brian Cushing.

Any of you have Garcon, Santana Moss or Alfred Morris? Week 1 isn't over yet and I bet at least one of them has a big game.

I have Alfred Morris and Arian Foster left this week.

I'm hoping at least one of them blows up to give me a little cushion. I'm still projected to win, but I'd rather be the guy 9 points up than 9 points down.

On another note, I'm cross posting something I posted on the HR league wall on Yahoo regarding waiver wire rules that has me pretty confused.

"I'm a little confused on how waivers work.

Don't players lock after they play a game for the week until like the following Tuesday or Wednesday when everyone gets a crack at them based on their waiver position?

I ask because I'm confused as to how Julius Thomas could be picked up basically the day after he played last Thursday. Should he have been locked, or is everyone up for grabs 24/7 unless they've been released?

Cause that seems to make waiver priority numbering pretty stupid. I was sort of saving my number 2 spot for someone exactly like J. Thomas, but if we can grab people whenever, why do we even have ordering? I don't remember it being like that in the past."

I have Garcon...me hopes he lights it up. And Floyd also.

Lyr: I'll cross answer:

"The rules section says:

Weekly Waivers Sunday - Tuesday

So I guess even though he played Thursday, since it was before Sunday, he was available. *shrug*"

Great. Now I bet they pull Morris and instead of getting 10-15 points, he'll probably end the game in the negative.

To my recollection, last year we changed it after week 1 to make any player whose team had played go to waivers. And it happened after a player had a surprisingly good week 1 on Thursday night, then didn't do very much the rest of the season, or so I seem to recall.

I think we should make that same change then. Whether or not that one case didn't work out for the person who tried it, it really just not consistent.

Morris got a TD for you. But McCoy has 171 yards and a TD with 11 min still to play. And against one of last years best rush defenses. This could be a fun year for Eagles fans. Sucks for me though [Mad]

Though I don't play Fantasy Football, I just dropped by to say I REALLY enjoyed the Eagles-Skins game. As an Eagles fan, there hasn't been much to celebrate for the last 2 years, but MAN, this was a fun game to watch. The best quote of the night came from Jason Kelce, who said that during the last two kneel-downs, a Washington d-lineman came up to him and said "next time we play, y'all gotta slow it down some." Fat chance!

I will look and see....we have the same songs we had last year. ...I don't think I changed any of them...

I didn't mean to start Sudfield over Gonzo... guess I just didn't switch it back or hit save...

I was going to play Eldeleman but switched him for Sanders. Not my brightest move... that's what i get for listening to the so called experts.

If someone is a free agent they can be picked up at any time. If they are on Waivers, there is a cooling period.

And if you drop a player you can't turn around and pick them up off of waivers -- you have to wait until they go free agent. Or at least that's how it worked last year. So if you have first position on the waiver wire, don't drop a player you want to keep under the assumption that you have first call on getting him back.

I don't ever remember playing in a league like that. Most leagues lock players after their team has played. Other wise the waiver system would be virtually useless.

That's not what Kwea was saying, I don't think. We agree that Thomas should have been on waivers, and technically he was.

The issue is that all players were put on waivers after the draft. Thomas was drafted, then dropped when everyone opened up on the 5th, so he went on waiver until the 7th (two days for any dropped player). After playing the night of the 5th, his whole team should have been put on waivers until the 10th, but he didn't (I don't know about the rest). So the waiver request that Vash intended for the 10th went through on the 7th. I think we all agree that shouldn't be how it works -- just that it's what happened.
