And I don't get why waiting makes you less of a GM or whatever. I'm not in this to study every player in the league and then predict what they're gonna do a month and a half before the season begins. To me the fun of the work before hand is having the draft strategy down..figuring out who to pick where and how to find value at the right times. Is that not 'GM' enough for you?

I never set the draft until after the last week of preseason, no reason to do it early.

I've got 1 set for Aug 31st, my buddies from Indy are coming up and we're gonna make a big weekend out of it. 1 other will probably be the following day and haven't figured out my 3rd one yet.

OK I can confirm I'm in. Just please don't schedule the draft for Thursday night August 29th. That's my main league's auction draft, and labor day weekend after that. Maybe Sunday the 25th, after all the Week 3 games are done, if you are taking suggestions...

My biggest request/question: How are we doing draft order this year?

Are we doing it in the order teams finished? Whoever took 1st place picks first?

Or are we randomizing the draft order? If we are randomizing, once everyone is confirmed, can we do the randomization and get it out ASAP so we all can properly plan? I hate those "you find out your draft order 30min before the draft" leagues. I don't even bother with them anymore.

We'll do it like we did last year. We'll randomize and we'll do it well before the draft.

I think we should just do the randomizing thing again and I agree that we are ready to do it within the next few minutes, I am anxious to start preparing too.

Just don't let Ray use the randomizer. He'll end up "first" again.

Ray did the order, and was first in hockey. Can't remember who did the order in football, but cold steel picked first.

And how did that work out for me?


That was the first time in probably 10 years I wasn't one of the last 3 picks. Hell, it doesn't matter where I pick, I'm going to lose regardless.

Whichever league I end up will need a Tues Wed draft. I work too much to guarantee I'll be off at a reasonable hour and an autodraft team is just no fun.

I've got nothing against 5-7. Can get a top tier back and then something better than the AP/Foster takers do 2nd.

Again, its my strong belief that after about the 5th round, picking in the middle puts you in a tough position as far as value vs. round goes.
