    What's your Yahoo name? There's been another member that joined between last night and tonight. Could be a problem with your user name over there. Have you been looking at unauthorized porn again? /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    My Yahoo name is the same as this one. It won't let me enter my email addy or my time zone. I have tried to edit it and do about 20 different things. It won't let me do it. I gave up like I said. One thing gets fixed and now this... /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif

    Re: 32 days \'til Fantasy Football

    How does the draft work... it says auto pick? It finally worked for me. But is this right or not? Cuz I wanted to pick who I wanted and see if I got a couple of them....

    Re: 32 days \'til Fantasy Football

    Here's the deal with the draft. There are three options, Live, Autopick, and Offline.

    With the live draft, everyone in the league must be available at the same time and it's just like the real thing. That would be cool if everyone could take a few hours out of a day, but with everyone spread out over the country, it would probably take an act of least St. Peter's assistant angel to pull that off.

    Offline, every sends the commish of the league a list of their players they want and the commish sets the teams. That's all good, but first it's a time factor for me, two, it would be a conflict of interest since I have a team and wouldn't want to be accused of screwing someone.

    The autopick draft works like this: You go to your team lineup, and there's an option called pre-rank you draft picks. You sit around for an hour or two and decide who you want to draft. Then when everyone is ready, I turn the draft on, and in a day or two, a computer somewhere holds the draft. Then as soon as the teams are drafted, you can go in and get rid of who you don't want and hopefully find someone better off the free agent list. Usually, during the first couple of weeks, you can move up by picking people off this list, but the sooner you do it, the better. The Autopick is the easiest to do. There is a draft order that I can either set randomly or use my own formula to set the draft order. I think this time, I'm going to use CK5 member seniority to set the draft order. /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    Also, for the Autopick, the top people you want are the point scorers, QB, RB. And you will want several choices in case you don't get your first choice. Even though you might not get who you want, you're second choice might be better. I've had Kurt Warner the last two years and haven't won my league yet. I've also found that having a quality kicker can help win games, but these guys are not high on the list. It usually takes me a full hour to set up my pre-rankings, as I focus on QB, RB and WRs. Defense is a crapshoot cause I'm going with the team defense format this year and if the defense sucks, then you will be paying cause they can lose games for you.
