Yes it is set for 9pm eastern time. It originally set it for 9:15pm but I was able to change it. This should give enough time to those that work a bit later the chance to get back in time to make your picks. If you can't make it just put a list together on espn.com so you get the players you want to target.

The draft clock is 90 seconds between picks which is extremely fair and enough time to make a selection. Hope to see everyone there and I believe we are down to 3 left to pay so we are getting there!

Hoping I can sneak in for the last couple of rounds

If I don't get Spiller #2 (assuming that AD goes #1), then the thing didn't save my pre-ranks and I will be eternally bitter.

the league is set up to have 4 playoff teams only now...that is what the majority of the owners who posted wanted.

it will also be fractional scoring. so if your player gets 76 yards, you will get 7.6 points.

lastly the league is set up to start the following

1 -QB
2 - RB
3 - WR
1- FLEX (RB/WR/TE)
1- TE
1- DEFENSE
1- K

7- bench spots

so it will be 17 rounds total. the only difference compared to some leagues is this one has 3 wide receivers and a flex that need to be started. I personally like this as it really shows who drafts well and who is deep enough...but if you want to go with the traditional 2 wide receivers and a flex lmk.

Good stuff, agree with all the changes. I'm cool with the 3 WR/flex since we only have 10 owners anyways

Need some objective people to go through and look at all rosters and see which one's best now.

good draft guys

most teams look solid even with ESPN's horrible projections...honestly some of the worst projections I have seen this year from any site.

I honestly like Zac's team a lot, especially considering he picked #1 overall and in no way shape or form should he have landed all of Peterson, Ridley, and CJ2K... That is pretty filthy. Then see he got Brady and Gronk (likely only misses a game or two) and he is pretty well off. His wideouts are a bit weak though I am a big fan of Torrey Smith and Tavon Austin as big players this year, so I really like his team overall...and he has Da Bears defense..pretty solid overall.

Yahoo!'s grades this year are hilarious. I got a D despite being stacked at RB and WR while my buddy got an A while taking a kicker in the 9th.

I'm legitimately excited at how terrible my team is to see if I can somehow do anything with it.

your team isn't that bad...you are crazy deep at wide receiver so maybe you can pull some trades for a RB...that is where you have some issues.

I actually give Yahoo props for even doing grades for every team. I enjoyed reading team grades in all of my drafts on that site though like you said some of the grades made no sense. Hopefully they can fine tune it as I think it is a solid feature that all sites should be doing to be honest.

A guy who picked Manning in the 1st and had Demarco Monte Ball and Laveon Bell (after the injury) as his top two backs was the highest rated draft in my yahoo league

Not too many reaches in this draft.

Agreed, would be cool to get feedback from people who aren't in this league. Someone needs to post them. I believe mine was:

QB: Rodgers
RB: Martin
RB: Gore
WR: Welker
WR: Wayne
WR: S. Smith
FLEX: Bernard (RB)
TE: Daniels
K: Walsh
DST: Seahawks

Hopkins (WR)
Bradshaw (RB)
Ballard (RB)
A. Roberts (WR)
Little (WR)
Myers (TE)
Palmer (QB)

I like my team overall. I definitely had no intention of taking a QB so high but all of the guys I wanted with my 2nd pick were gone by the time I came up, something I hadn't encountered at all in the mocks I did, so I went with Rodgers. Receivers are a little weak but still 3 legit starters and I anticipate I will find a gem off the wire at some point to supplement them. My strategy was to be as strong as possible at RB, and while I would have liked to get Forte at No. 2, I am still quite happy with Gore, very reliable and still very good. He looked fine to me last year, especially against the Bears. So we'll see, should be a lot of fun.

Same here. I took Brees in the 2nd because every RB I wanted was gone. I hadn't experienced that in a mock either.

You look alright. I'm not high on Gore; yeah, he was good last year, but his carry count is getting up there, so the breakdown is sure to happen soon, but it might wait a year. I like what I hear about Bernard, but I'm not sure that I want to slot him into the lineup just yet. I have him in a 10 teamer as my 4th/5th back, behind Spiller, Ridley, Demarco, and probably equal to Vereen. Wish you had another RB instead of a guy like Myers.

Yeah, it was a 5 RB limit, so Bernard was my gamble and Bradshaw/Ballard were more of a sure thing just to make sure I would have a guy to start at flex if Bernard wasn't playing a lot. With the big bench, had to take backups at 2 of QB, TE, K, DST.

Ohh....

Never mind then

With that in mind, I do like your backup QB & TE
