Starting to get excited, our draft is on August 27th. A ten team- one keeper league with standard format. Is your draft planned yet? What format are you using this year?

I saw this article pop up while at work, it's not great though he doesn't have Freeman listed in his top 20.

I am in a league on ESPN.com. I think it is basic format. No date yet for draft. I have some ideas of how I want to build my team.

I'm not a big fantasy player but I will say one thing.

 

Draft. Donte. Moncrief.

Alright, I'm a bit conflicted over who I should keep in my dynasty league. We get to keep 2 players, it's a PPR league and with Calvin Johnson retiring I'm looking for a new keeper. 

 

Here are the options:

 

Luck, McCoy, Amari Cooper, Cobb, Barnidge, and Tyrod...

 

Luck has been on my team for ages and I'm expecting a bounce back year so I think I need to keep him. The choice then would really come down to Cooper or McCoy but I lean more towards Cooper. Thoughts?

Cooper. All day everyday, we play way to many teams that are good against the run year in and year out. Shady also isn't a lock to get the goal line work.

Draft. Donte. Moncrief.


I like Moncrief I had him last year as my third wideout, if Luck bounces back he could have a high upside.

I don't quite know if the Reception Perception stuff that Matt Harmon does is entirely my kind of thing but a lot of football & fantasy guys love his work.

 

All I know is that Matt loves him some Moncrief - http://www.thebackya...de-in-2016.html

Nice, thanks for sharing. I'm surprised you don't do fantasy. I resisted for years, 5 years later and I'm addicted.

I did a 2 man league with a friend on the NFLUK site last year but it doesn't really appeal much to me (mainly because I lost to a novice).

 

If I took it seriously, I'd probably be half-decent.

I did a mock draft the other day. This year is going to be a little more difficult I think. Too many RB's coming back off of injury, too many player's retiring or just getting old. 

 

My leagues this year are switching things up on PPR because WRs are diminishing the value of RB's. However I like PPR, so I gave the leagues the option of knocking PPR to half point, removing it, or giving RB's like .12-.25 points per carry. They overwhelmingly approved giving RB's points per carry. Hope it doesn't backfire.

 

Who is your guy's first round pick? Where do you prefer to pick?

 

PS this fantasy forum needs to be a little more lively!

My draft is set for Aug 29. I think all colts WRs are a good bet. They are going to throw the ball a ton IMO. Sleeper RB is Carlos Hyde IMO (if he can stay healthy)

My paid league is on NFL.com. If 10 people are interested in doing a league for bragging rights I will set it up. Please be an active poster and an avid football fan so the league flows. It will be a dud if no one is changing lineups and playing the wire waiver etc. No money, just Bills pride. 10 man, standard scoring rules.

Our league is goofing around with a GOt theme I brain stormed....

Another week, Another Wun Wun
Another week, Another One Won ...lame I know.

I'm also considering drafting Vance McDonald, the 9ers will be passing a lot and he moves better than most people would expect, sleeper baby!

Is there a cost associated with keeping for example the round they were drafted?  If not keep your best 2 players whoever you like best.  I would think Luck and McCoy/Cooper.

I always seem to end up with TOrrey Smith on my team and hate it.  He is good enough to not drop but not good enough that anyone wants him.  He just sits on the bench all year lol.  I think this draft is a little short on RB.  Ryan Mathews is always an injury risk and you are left with 2 backup rbs to plug in.  I never draft a backup te and most of the time not a backup qb (although I love Tyrod at his ADP).  There is almost always a waiver wire plug and play for the bye week.

Someone else is doing a league also, but it doesn't seem like they have enough people. Maybe combine if either of you have a few people.

Just had the first of my two league drafts last night. This one is not PPR. Snake draft, 12 teams, I had the 4th overall pick.

Starters:
QB - Jameis Winston TB
RB - Ezekiel Eliott DAL
RB - Thomas Rawls SEA
WR - Allen Robinson JAX
WR - Jarvis Landry MIA
TE - Greg Olsen CAR
FLEX - Jay Ajayi MIA
D - Bills (couldn't stop myself)
K - Brandon McManus DEN

Bench:
RB - TJ Yeldon JAX
WR - Sterling Shepard NYG
TE - Charles Clay TE
WR - Mohamed Sanu ATL
WR - Kamar Aiken BAL
RB - Alfred Morris DAL
WR - Will Fuller HOU

I'm just going to drop the crappiest WR/RB when it comes bye week time, if my current D/K are worth keeping.

I'm assuming you went Elliott first which I get if you like him but I don't like him over some of the guys you must have passed on.  Good job getting Morris as the handcuff.

 

I really like your starting WRs as well as Aiken althoughI like Landry better in PPR.  I'm thinking Fuller will be your cut for a bye as a rookie wr with a crappy qb doesn't sound like a recipe for success.

 

If I'm guessing 1. Elliott 2. ARob 3. Rawls 4. Landry 5. Olsen Where did you go in round 6?

 

Ballsy going Jameis with not other option.  Starting QB and Flex are the biggest question marks in your starting lineup for me.  Good spots to have question marks as the waiver can provide an answer to both of those spots.

 

Just some feedback for fun  :thumbsup:
