    I drafted 7th and ended up in the same boat - chasing RBs.  I also notice that it knocked me out of any chance at a decent TE, looks like you might have had the same problem.

    Roethlisberger, Prescott

    Ingram, Crowell, Barber, Thompson, Riddick, Kelley

    Hopkins, Thomas, Thielen, Crabtree, Shepard, Amendola, Enunwa

    Doyle, ASJ, Butt

    I think 6-7 kind of stinks this year since it really leads you into a WW start that leaves you playing catch-up.

    My last 7 draft I started Barkley, M Thomas, Ertz. If you want to start Nuk, Thomas, Ertz then you just need to hammer RB after than. The nice thing about best ball is that it gives you more options because you don’t have to guess which of your group of RB2s to start.

    Wow, I hopped into a DRAFT 30-second live draft and tried to do it on my phone.  What a disaster - my phone only gave me 2 letters of each name, so I could see that a guy drafted K.H... for Kareem Hunt.  I couldn't keep up with the pace and ended up with a crapass team, all my own fault.

    In the middle of the draft, I switched to PC drafting, and it was much better.  My team was already hopeless by then, but when I do another fast draft, I'll be sure to do it on the PC.  I'm glad that was a $1 league.

    Hahahahaha. Do you have flip phone or something? Just kidding. I wouldn’t joking around with you if it was more than a dollar league. 

    I’ve only drafted from my phone and have never had this issue. Was it just saying the initials in the picks bar at the top?

  3. Just finished a Draft from the 12 spot. I really like the team. I’m starting to get to the point where I feel it’s better to have a balanced team rather than the RB Heavy I was going after before. Really you just need 1 stud. For me I went with Cook then got a couple guys in Miller and Crowell that I think can provide a decent enough floor. After that I 3 stacked receiving backs in Riddick, Thompson and Gio.


    Wilson, Maholmes

    Cook, Miller, Crowell, Riddick, Thompson, Gio

    OBJ, Marvin Jones, Meredith, Ryan Grant, M. Bryant, Kearse, Torrey Smith

    Ertz, Hooper, Clay

  4. The makers of 'Fallout' and 'Skyrim' just issued an ultimatum to Sony over the PS4, and it could have a huge impact on the future of gaming

    Sony is dropping the ball on this one. Fortnite was the first to break this egg open. Others will pile on now. Microsoft torpedo’d an entire console generation with a bad E3 conference. This could be a turning point for Sony if they don’t get with the times.

    The DRAFT website/app format is something new I am trying this year. I tried doing a search for the topic but I keep getting errors. If someone could provide a link to some topics on this feel free to let me know!

    Appreciate it. 

    Yes. Draft leagues I’m guessing you are referring too are best ball leagues with no roster management. There were also called “MFL10’s” for awhile. Here’s the Shark Pool thread... Link

    There is another thread floating around too that’s supposed to be just for Draft Championship tournament. Scroll through the pages in the SP and you will find it.

  6. A lot of teams will start rookies at the bottom of the depth chart because they want them to “earn it”. Guice will be the starter and get the bulk of the carries. Thompson likely limits his total upside because Thompson is very good in the pass game.

    Friend of mine is selling it.  I don't think the doctor would prescribe it.

    I believe in Vegas doctors were prescribing it years ago. I’m not sure where things are at with it now though. You would be surprised at what a doctor will say though. Especially, if you talk to them and ask them questions about stuff you are taking without the prescription. I would recommend this approach first. Maybe find out from your buddy what it is. Most will have a brand name. Also, find out if it’s the cream or not.

    I'm in my 40s, HGH seems worth trying but about the side effects?

    Anyone using HGH regularly or done so in a "cycle"?  If so, how old are you and did/does it help anything?

    I work out but prefer to be more lean and mean instead of bulking up. 

    I haven’t but a bunch of guys I work with have. They all like it but it’s very expensive. Are you able to get it from a doctor?

    So the numbers stated above by @NewlyRetired don’t include this. Correct? 

    So the minimum is $13,500 per fight.

    Back to my earlier thought - I am trying to think 3 players deep not just 2.  The uncertainty usually ramps up in round 3 so I am trying to get 3 bank.players.

    Copying a random PPR top 36, here is the 3 players you would get if the draft went chalk (chalk being the top 36 from this site) 

    1  Gurley  Gronk  Kelce

    2  Zeke  Freeman  T Hill

    3  Bell  Rodgers  Mckinnon

    4  DJ  Mixon  J Howard

    5  A Brown  AJ Green  Diggs

    6  Barkley  Mccaffrey  D Watson

    7  Hopkins  Evans  A Cooper

    8  Kamara  D Adams  Guice

    9  Beckham  K Allen  Ertz

    10  K Hunt  J Jones  Baldwin

    11  Fournette  D Cook  Thielen

    12  M Thomas  Gordon  R Wilson


    So don't get hung up on the players names - that's not important  The key is for these purposes these are your top 36.  The key is what looks like the best trio in your rankings.  

    Right now, I get nervous at A Cooper at 3.7 - so I want to pick top 6 probably top 4.

    Why would you use a random list? Fantasy Pros Combined Rankings Use the average of a bunch of different places. Or use the PPR ADP at a place like Draft Calculator. Coopers average rank is 37 and his ADP is 3.12. 

    If you are using Cooper as your cut off it seems that 12 would be the better spot. Especially, if even 1 or 2 guys can slip. Then you’d end up with 4 of your top guys.

    Just for debate, wouldn't you be more likely to take a reach at 2.06?  You pick again in 12 spots.  If you reach at 2.02, you don't pick for 24 spots again.

    Unless, you are not talking about reaching in round 2.

    In round 2 I’m not reaching. There’s too much that good stuff. You get a combination of Fournette, Cook, Hunt, Julio. That’s a fantastic start to a draft. 

    I find that when my picks are evenly spaces from the center it’s harder to reach for guys because there’s a higher chance that I will be able to gamble and wait. Which more often than not ends up in me missing my guy. I get what you’re saying though. You’d think that by picking say 5.06 and 6.07 that I would be able to the “falling” guy before he falls and then be able to take the “reach” at less of reach. I get what you’re saying. However, once the draft is live and I’m in the middle, it always feels like I miss my guys by 1 or 2 picks but there’s “good value” guys that I don’t really like that I end up with.

    I think the turn is highly overrated.  Your comment about starting a run by going outside ADP can be done at any spot. 

    It can but in the middle parts of the draft I’m not as willing to reach for a guy. And when I do it’s not usually as much of a reach or as noticeable. That’s partially why I said the part before.

  13. In order: 1, 2, 12, 11, 3, 4, 10, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9

    I like to be at the turn. You get one player that is falling because people over think things and the other one you don’t feel bad about reaching because you know he won’t last 2 more rounds. 

    The other thing is that it I feel like I can spark runs on players. Or with that second pick when people see you going outside of typical ADP with your second pick, they will start reaching for their guys because they’re spooked that you’ll jump ADP and take them.

  14. There is no one on a lawn in about a 10 miles radius of this thread. Hahahaha. 

    This thread needs to lighten up. The NFL and the refs use the preseason for the same reasons as the teams. The same sky was falling when they introduced the other helmet rule. They are tweaking, adjusting and learning the new rules too. I think I read somewhere that preseason games have 20% more calls than the regular season games. And isn’t even standard preseason yet. In the words of a once great moustache... “Relax”. NFL players are back on the field. Be happy and have a disgusting Guiness. :banned:

    did another one that I'm very satisfied with, IMO I got some crazy value from where I drafted Michel, Thielen, Cohen, Eifert, and Miller. I absolutely love my WRs and am hoping last years down year for WRs is not a trend.

    QB: Big Ben, Bortles, Tyrod Taylor

    RB: Fournette, Michel, Cohen, Crowell, Chubb

    WR: Allen, Thielen, Gordon, Watkins, Anthony Miller, John Brown, Enunwa

    TE: Howard, Eifert, V. Davis

    I like the team. I might have passed on Enunwa for an RB though. I like Enunwa but you’re WRs are really strong and those RBs are risky. However, at the point that Enunwa is going you’re grasping at straws with the RBs.

    Are you a Cleveland guy? Edit: I read Anthony Miller and thought Antonio Callaway. Sorry.
