Ray Rice at 1.09 is highway robbery - well done.Where's everyone else in this league? :hey:

his value drops a little since RB's get 0 PPR....and TE's get 2PPR....plus being able to draft a Team QB instead of individual QB mitigates some injury risk at that position which may increase the value there as well.......

Agree - the 0PPR for RB's does hurt Rice a bit - but, not bad for one of the bell-cow / 3-down RB's who will still score well on the ground as well as through the air, though.

FYI -

If people are interested in strategy or history, the other league Anarchy League sites (specifically Leagues 1 + 2) have 7 years worth or results, rosters, and drafts to look at.

FF Ninja, if you're going to predraft you need to do it for both your picks since you are on the turn. I can explain how to do this if you aren't sure how. Sort of pointless to predraft just one of your picks when you're next up.

He may have predrafted both picks and the guy(s) he wanted could have been picked already.

I pre-drafted my second pick and the system didn't take it for some odd reason. :shrug:I use MFL for several leagues and have never had the system not take a pre-drafted pick. Not sure what's up. Guess we'll have to monitor it. If it continues to be an issue, we can send a ticket into Kevin at MFL to take a look.

Nope, I noticed he was only predrafted for one pick when the draft was still young (even if all your guys get taken it still says "predraft selection made" up until it can't make the pick). Based on his comments next to his pick he isn't familiar with MFL. I can explain predrafting when I'm in front of my PC tomorrow. Also, FF Ninja, MFL is fully customizable which is why it can look bush league, but once you figure it out you can make some beautiful league sites or at the very least some informative ones that are easy on the eyes. If you want to see what professionals can do google the Hyper/Active leagues.

Mine was for sure pre-drafted and not selected. Like I said...may have been just a quirk at the time. Will monitor it.

Been using it since 1998 and it is by far the best, most customizable site available for fantasy. Right now, you are only seeing a quick template that is available that David selected for us to use to draft and run the leagues by. Believe me, you can get very professional kick-### looking sites using this service.

Here are some guidelines fro predrafting:

How do I pre-Draft?

Answer: If your league is holding an on-line draft then you can use this feature to help pick your players prior to your turn and help speed along the draft. This is also useful if you are not able to draft for a future round. You can enter your pre-draft picks for that round and the system will choose the highest priority player.

Please note that Pre-draft picks are selected for you as soon as it is your turn to pick in the draft. To have a compiled list for your draft in which you, the owner, can make your own picks, but are not picked from immediately please use the My Draft List

Pre-Draft Picks – Round 1

[*]Go to the For Owners >Draft

[*]From the Player To Add: list, highlight the player in which you would like to add to your Pre-draft List. You can filter players on this available fantasy free agent list by using the “Show Only” pull-down box to obtain a subset of the list (by position or NFL team).

[*]Click the Add To List> button.

[*]Continue steps 2. and 3. above for any pick you’d like to attempt in the round. Keep in mind, adding more players will increase your chances for getting a player in that round.

[*]Once players are added, highlight the individual players and use the Move Pick Up or Move Pick Down buttons to prioritize them in the order which you would like them drafted. You may also use the

[*]After prioritizing your list you MUST click the Save These Picks and Continue button save your picks for that round and receive confirmation.

Pre-Draft Picks – Round 2 (Subsequent Rounds)

Once Round 1 picks are saved successfully you will be ready to make picks for Round 2. Round 1 Saved picks will appear at the top of the Pre-Draft page.

[*]Optionally, you can choose the “Add All From Previous Round>>” button to add all players from Round 1 to your Round 2 Draft.

[*]Now repeat steps 2 through 6 from Pre-Draft Picks – Round 1 to add your picks for subsequent rounds.

Pre-Draft Future Rounds

In the event that you will not be available for future rounds of drafting during a live draft you have the option to Pre-draft those rounds.

[*]Go to For Owners >Draft

[*]Choose at the round that you would like to make a pick for at the bottom of the Page from the drop down field listed next to the “Or, you may go immediately to:” XX Be sure to click the “Now!” button to move to that round of picks.

[*]Follow steps 2 through 6 in Pre-Draft Picks – Round 1.

Sorry fellas, you are correct that I didn't predraft my second pick and that I have never used MFL before. It doesn't help that it is blocked at work so I've had to do it from my phone. Never had it before where you have to set up a predraft order for every single pick, but I can definitely see the advantage to that.And yeah, I've heard good things about the customization options for MFL but geez the basic interface is terrible. Reminds me of fanball back in the day. Total maze to get where you want and the link names aren't that intuitive or well placed on the page. I guess it is like an average chick with a great personality. It's going to have to grow on me, because I'm definitely not taking it home on first impression.

You don't have to pre-draft every pick, but if you know you will be away for a while and your pick is fast approaching, it just makes things go smoother. But you in no way have to pre-draft every pick.

No, I meant that you have to individually predraft each pick IF you want it to automatically pick for you. I am used to just setting a single predraft list and each pick will be made off of that. Not separate lists for separate picks.But to keep things moving, I certainly intend to predraft my selections as much as possible. I don't want to hold things up here and feel guilty about the 3 hour delay already...

Think the key to doing well here has to be establishing who makes the playoffs. Potentially 4 extra weeks is huge even if a guy only averages 10-12PPG.

Speaking from experience, draft position in these leagues has made absolutely no difference in the year-end rankings. None. Guys have won from every slot available and there has not been any greater percentage at the top, in the middle, or at the end of the round.

Also, many folks draft people with the allure of landing additional playoff points, but every year teams that should make the post season don't and teams that seemingly had no chance do. Usually, the standings don't change a ton in the playoff weeks unless someone happened to land a lot of players from SB teams and/or wild card round teams that play multiple games.

In the main, there have been any number of strategies that have been tried and failed and tried and worked. Clearly the biggest variable in all of this is drafting a team that ends up being healthy the whole year. If that happens, you will be in the hunt.

Why does it take big tex three hours every time he makes a pick?

Ridiculous, and he was on the clock an hour after his previous pick. I'd have more pity for his accidental Britt pick if he wasn't such a slug at drafting.

Now BigTex is demanding his Britt pick be fixed in the comments section of the draft. I don't think it should be fixed now that we are through a bunch more picks but I guess Yudkin has had this problem before and has a solution?

Like Donsmith I have no idea what I'm doing. I have been reading the discussion in the Anarchy 2 thread and it seems like no one thinks RBs are valuable in this format. I couldn't disagree more. Sure they don't get PPR, but you have to start 4 of them every week and with 16 teams that's a lot of RBs who won't be seeing many touches having to be in people's lineups. I like Fitzpatrick's chances of putting up some decent numbers this season - sort of a boom or bust pick in my eyes. I probably reached for the Cardinals, but in this format where you don't have to worry about who is starting week to week I think they're a lot more valuable with the receiving weapons they have. Roddy White was an easy "How is he still here" pick for me, and I grabbed Tamme thanks to 2 days of training camp hype - gotta love it.

On that note - I wasn't surprised at all to see Kevin Smith go yesterday after training camp speak was all over the place about Leshoure being hurt, Best not cleared and Smith looking good. Interesting time to be drafting like this where the news changes every day. Certainly adds a dynamic to the owners drafting next to the road blocks who sit around on the clock all day.

i agree w/ your observation about RBs.u can start up to 5 RBs, too.to ur point, ive drafted 4, and have my 5th in mind w/ my nxt pick.
