Didn't see a thread for this yet.  I assume this is the week it goes live right?  Who else can't wait to waste the next five weeks tweaking their roosters over and over?  :popcorn:

If you want to talk about tweaking your rooster over and over, perhaps that belongs in the FFA forum? :lol:

Wonder if any Gordon uncertainty is priced into the Browns receiving crew.

 

And their QBs. 

Not that most of us will be paying for browns anyway. :whistle:

I've already tweaked my roster 37 times (in my head) and we don't even know the prices yet.

Yeah just today I looked over my last few teams to see why my strategy (roster construction and/or selections) has been flawed. I'm sure it will be again this year but is a very fun contest.  I'm glad they don't keep track of number of team iterations.

8/1/17

... could today be the day?!

Edit: Can't hurt to ask I guess, @David Dodds do you know when you expect to launch the contest this year?  Not sure if I should keep F5ing the homepage.

That is the worst and it makes me more mad when the guy isn't even on the roster when they release it.

It says "Coming In August" under the contests tab...

If you click the link for your previous team it states “Sit tight. The 2018 contest will open in late July or early August.”.  That being said I think it opens up tomorrow or Thursday.

This contest is the ONLY reason I have a membership to this site. For real! If the contest ever goes away it will be in unison with my membership. 

Same.

I wish good news on certain players would stop coming out for at least a week.  I'm sure the prices of some players are increasing by the day... *sigh*

every $3 you think in your mind will be $7

Every $11-13 player will be $17-21

Eh, if the news comes out after prices are set everyone jumps on the value.  I kinda hope no major news comes out after the pricing is done, it's more fun if there aren't a ton of obvious value plays that are 80% owned.

I like the value plays.  Even if 75% have them it’s like 25% 11 kicker guy teams u get to compete against

Hadn't really been thinking about player prices much but just realized that Gurley has a brutal week 12 bye.  I would have assumed he'd be the highest-priced RB but now wonder if he'll be discounted below Zeke/Bell. 

Over/under $32.50 for Gurley?

Way over. Gurley will be right near 40

Lets ruin things before it even starts.  

I'll go first:

Eric Decker

How about this while we wait. Highest % owned guy that will disappoint? No matter what price.  Think like Davante Adams the year Jordy torn his ACL. 

I will go 1st. George Kittle

Interesting, that seems crazy high to me.  0% chance I'd roster Gurley at that price.  

If the over under was at 38.5 I wouldn't know what to bet.

Barkley. If he is a little lower price than the top 5 or 6 RBs then people will think he is a great deal and he could have high %. But I don't think he will end up being worth that price. I am Giants fan and hope I am wrong.

If you're one of the first 500 to set a lineup and not change it once you'll get two injury replacements. Love it!

Also interesting to see there's half dollar pricing.   Eli Manning at $13.50 or Rivers at $15.50 hmmm.

Shows how out of the loop you are!!! You should have seen my team last year that cashed and how horrible it was, getting my 3 free no cut weeks was amazing.

Yeah, I should have signed up for that when I submitted my week 2 team.

C.J. Mosley seems like a steal at $22

The easiest chalk play is  Bill Belichick every year.  Until they lower 25 points per win, he'll be on 90% of rosters.  Hopefully he'll be in the $30-40 range again.

I'm saving Belichick for week 14 against the Dolphins.  I'm sure his price will be higher at that point in the year but he'll be worth it.
