if people are getting morris for 10, you are way overpaying bush for 28.


I think that was last year before he became someone he was gotten for $10 and so the person is keeping him for $10, not that he is currently going for $10.

Correct. All FA's can be kept for $10. Every player drafted costs $5 more to draft (2 keep cap). Really fun format, I highly suggest.

So one gets to keep Morris for 10 and one gets to keep Bush for 28. It's still too much a price to pay for Bush. I'd rather pay a +5 in the draft for a better prospect and let somebody bite to get Bush for 33.

Just a personal pet peave of mine for fantasy sports. Guys don't like their drafts, or find someone better that they should have drafted and moves are made before there is any structure in place to reward players based on merit

Im one of the people making moves. I don't understand why you wouldn't want to make move before the season, as new information comes up, your choices on who is best change for your team. I dropped Dexter McCluster for Kembrell Thompkins because of the move up depth chart by Thompkins which significantly increases his value. I added Harris because he was atop the packers depth chart (now out on I.R.) so I added Redman who is starting now because of injury to Bell.

That's the problem with having a draft so early. The drafts for my other leagues are all within a week of the first regular season game.

Because it skirts the rules, that's why it's a pet peeve of mine. There is no waiver order so players can just be dropped and added at will. Tyler Eifert has already been a part of a few roster moves. Players, such as Thompkins, should be awarded to those who actually need them, once a waiver order has been established.

Right now, it's whoever can get to the computer and spend the most time on it who gets the player they want/need. It's just something that's in that grey area, and I personally don't like it. However, it's not against the rules that have been established so as much as I don't like it, I'll accept it.

Never thought about it that way. I will definitely address that in my future leagues.

Issues like this are why I like to set up FAAB. You get 100 bucks and once it's gone you are left with free agents.

This is what I get for participating in a draft before doing much of my scouting Laughing

I'm not going to have any RB's worth a darn this year. Good thing I have my two other leagues to fall back on Smile

Yikes, left Boldin on the bench.

It was a pretty good week for me. 145 and counting. Cool
