Re: Furthur Fantasy Football League 2013

I said I'd be in on the TL league. I thought.

Autodraft leagues are no fun

I'd be much more into a live draft. Snake or auction?

TL= Terrapinlanding.com. There are more folks wandering through, but not a lot of football fans yet, it appears. But we've got time yet, so maybe we will have enough for 2 leagues. It wouldn't be bad to have one auto draft and one live.

I'm not sure what "snake or auction" means though??

I assume snake is the typical draft - everyone picks a draft order number and then you for example draft 1 - 10 for round 1 and then 10 - 1 for round 2 and so on.

An auction is pretty fun it is where each player is assigned a $ value and you have like $100 million to spend. Someone will nominate a player and then everyone bids on him. It presents a whole different drafting strategy.

I had no problem with the auto draft last year.

I have not been over to TL yet. I think one forum is good enough for me.

Dm has it right

And auction is the most fun. You typically star out with 200

Hey guys, I said earlier that I'd be in the league but I just assumed we'd have a live draft....if we do have a live draft I'm definitely in. If its auto set where the computer picks your team I'll pass...not much fun when you can't pick your own team and the computer picks 4 tight ends for you. Sunshine Sue, if you have a live draft mark me down as a definite. I'm an east coaster so a 5:00PT draft is just fine. Have a good night everyone.

I'll keep you posted! Though, the autodrafts do work pretty well. You can rank your preferences on selection order by both position and by individual players, so you have a good bit of say in the outcome even though the computer spits out the teams.

Yeah bxorain I totally hear what you are saying but yahoo can pick you a very good team. This year for a fantasy hockey league I could not make the draft so everyone or most everyone did the draft live while I was at the mercy of Yahoo and I ended up winning the league I was impressed by who Yahoo picked. Yeah there are a few instances where you get too many RBs and not enough WRs but Yahoo picks with their head while we pick with our hearts

That said I would love to try and coordinate a live draft, that would be a TON of fun.

I've never done a live draft, and I'd really like to give it a try, even though I've had good luck with the autodraft. I'd lean towards just making rotating picks, rather than the auction, but I'm open to either.
