No ADP data yet, so I am assuming Johnson?

Flipped a coin and took  Bell. 1,2,3 were Bell, Johnson and Zeke.

19+ hours in and still in the 1st round. I think it is weird that people are enthusiastic enough to join a league this early, but not enough to make a pick.

Meh, the same every year. I also think people like to have ADP available in terms of confirmation bias. I love drafting early but I feel like drafts are slower early, and maybe even slower than the sliver of time before ADP is available.

I find it interesting that AJ Green seems so locked into pick#8 in so many drafts I've seen so far. Anything surprise you early?

Top 8 are almost set in stone, with Evans and Green after the big 3 RB and WR. After that you have a mish mash of Dez, Hilton, Nelson, Cooper, McCoy, Freeman, Gordon at the turn.

Green at 8 in this one too. After, In order, Beckham, Brown, Evans, Julio.

Jordy Nelson at 10 was a little earlier than I expected. No real big surprise yet though.

I thought the same thing about Nelson, but a year removed from the injury and he was very productive last season. He may be getting to the point where he starts losing a step but he's one of the few WR's that doesn't need separation to make receptions. Any semblance of a running game(via draft/FA/health) and his TD #'s may take a hit though.

I have a strong sense of value through the top 8 or so, then there is a whole muddle of players I like about equally from 9-15.  Inconvenient since I'm sitting at the 8/9 turn in my only 8-team draft this year...

Last year I thoroughly liked the top 20 or so players and if I got a really high pick, I enjoyed the turn. This year, after the top 8 I want to throw up in my mouth a bit. Started my first one three days ago (I'll do 10-13 total so I take my time). Got pick 11. Took Dez. Happy with that. Passed on Freeman who was taken right after. I took Gurley pick 14. I just couldn't bring myself to draft Hiwrad, Ajayi, Hopkins or Robinson there. So I went with pedigree LOL. Last year I loved the turn at the end as well and was always happy with the two guys I got at least at the time I drafted them. This is shaping up to be a very strange beginning at least until after the draft. I think drafters this early might be conservative. I may reach. The 5-6 turn is coming and I'm high on crowder and Prosise. Even though early ADP suggests I'd have a possible shot at them at 7-8....or not...

I was very high on Crowder, but re-signing Davis and going out and adding Pryor cools that enthusiasm at least a little.... and we still have to get through the draft. 

Prosise may take a hit if SEA adds one of the many FA's they brought in. Peterson/Lacy might be a small ding to Prosise, Murray slightly bigger ding imo, but if they sign Charles then Prosise drops close to DND territory. 

When you say that you "reach" does that include taking high risk guys late? Do you lean more toward rookie gambles late, or injury risk guys, or 30 something vets that may or may not have another year left?

They also mention "some new formats planned as well" listed under the MFL 10 section of "2017 Enhancements". Crossing my fingers that this may mean some deep, deep MFL 10's this year. Some of their draft-and-go competition goes well beyond 20 rounds. It sounds like a lot of players until you actually get to week #15 and you see how almost all the teams have been decimated by injuries. 

http://home.myfantasyleague.com/2017-enhancements/

Anyone have any clue what this was about? I was hoping for either auction-mfl-10's or deeper draft-and-go-mfl-10's but still haven't heard about any new formats. At this time of year with so much uncertainty I could easily go for 30 rounds... and then maybe by the end of DEC I'd actually still have healthy/starting players to root for.

I mean reach in terms of a half a round up to maybe two rounds? Prosise is already hitting early 5 so he's kind of becoming off the table for me there. I like him 5/6 turn. Crowder though has fallen a bit. I see him as  PPR machine and don't worry about Pryor at all. In fact it's probably good to give him underneath stuff. 

I peronally don't waste my time with Peterson or Charles and likely won't draft Lacy. Running backs released rarely go on to success. I'm focusing on Prosise when I can because he will catch the ball and any early down work is a bonus. I've shied away from rookies but did take Cook at 4.6 where he kind of fell to me and I opened that draft with Julio, Hilton and Baldwin. Other than that, no rookies until after the NFL draft unless cook falls. 

I'm sticking to my formula from last year with 2 QBs, 2 Ds. But this year, I may have more teams with three TEs. 

I took Josh Gordon once so far. So that's some risk. Later rounds leaning young upside if I can but I won't rule out guys like Boldin and Wright. Just got Eli Rodgers in one at pick 16 or 17. I like that a lot! In fact I see some nice home run value at WR late this year so I'm generally filling out RBS (6-7) a little earlier. I did take Gore once at like round 12 over James white and instantly regretted it...

Nothing formally announced, but all signs point to a 50/50 format where the kitty is divided equally among the top 5 or 6 teams.

I would really like an auction or higher roster count also.

I realize auction is what they are working to improve so maybe that's being too wishful in thinking it may become available soon in the MFL10's, but I would guess it would be a great way to iron out the kinks to ensure it's working properly. Plus, the worst part about MFL10's is if you get stuck in a slow moving league your level of engagement drops. The great thing about an auction is you can check in on it whatever time works best for you, and you aren't holding up an entire draft if there are periods of the day you are unable(unwilling?) to check in. I think there is a big base of customers(especially the hard-core market that MFL caters to) that would be interested in that format.

The bigger roster would serve two purposes. Obviously, bigger roster removes luck from the equation which would be huge. It's not like people drafting FF teams in March can't come up with extra names to draft anyway. Secondly, I am pretty sure that QB/TE/DEF would get drafted much higher if the rosters were bigger because those are positions of relative scarcity. That would break up the monotony of your typical MFL10 that consists of drafting WR/RB for the first half of the draft. I feel like there is some sort of resistance to this by MFL but I'm not sure why that would be. Again, the hardcore FF customers are their bread and butter and those would likely be the customers that would enjoy the change the most.

Hooked up my old crusty looking scatter charts to all player names, and put a couple other things in for those that are using the app.

Those are cool, appreciate the scatter charts. 

The Sigma is interesting, plenty of rookies are high as to be expected but of the vets Michael Floyd is very high. Of the vets the all high-Sigma team:

QB B. Hoyer

RB J. Richard, D. Sproles

WR M. Floyd, J. Gordon, T. Boyd

TE J. Cook

DEF denver

Cook and Hoyer make sense, but it seems strange to me that Boyd and Sproles have such a high Sigma.

If one of these sights came up with a simple Auction-and-go format I would leave the MFL 10's forever. 

Has anyone heard of Mark Stopa????

I get that we signed up for a slow draft but I'm in a league with this ###-clown and he's timed out three separate times. I should of known what was coming when he went on the clock of the draft at 9:37pm ET.... at the end of the FIRST ROUND and it took him until 12:13pm ET the next day to make his two picks. JFC. He has back to back picks and averages nearly 8 hours to solve the herculean task of picking two fantasy football players. 

I guess he thinks of himself as a fantasy football "expert" and takes to twitter gracing us a all with his knowledge. Maybe he's an "expert" compared to his ability to conduct himself in a professional manner in the court room according to these links that describe him as "boorish" and "disrespectful".....

So for the love of god, if you've ever been in a league with a complete d-bag(or just can't stand lawyers that give the profession a bad name) can you please contact Mark Stopa and tell him he's on the ####### clock(for potentially another ~16 HOUR SPAN) and despite the fact that I'm sure he's not actually "boorish" and "disrespectful" he's doing a pretty great job of impersonating those traits. Twitter(shocking), phone, smoke signals, sky writing, or any other mode of communication would likely be a great way to reach him. Then Mark Stopa can go back to writing and commenting on fantasy football since he apparently have little time interest in actually playing it and seem completely focused on obstructing the rest of us from enjoying the hobby you seem to know so much about. If you don't want to check in on a draft for DAYS at a time... pre-draft? Thanks, Mark!

So glad I just use the app for everything except to join a new league. I would never know if a guy like him is in one of my leagues.

In a way he's doing us a favor. He's ruining a draft 16 hours at a time. What a ####-head, but who is worse? The Mark Stopa's of the world or the people at MFL that won't simply put him on auto-draft at some point? It's funny, you keep hearing that MFL is making changes to improve their product but they really aren't making fundamental changes to make their product better. If some jack-### wanted to check out of an auction he signed up for it would be fine.... he could simply bid on the players that were still available when he came back. In a draft that same jack-### hold up the entire draft for two-thirds of a day if he has back to back picks.

At least the folks at MFL aren't taking money from people who will lose their home to foreclosure in the name of "helping" them, so they are better than that. But that's a pretty low bar.

I am curious if the people here have had better experiences at any other draft-and-go sites? Is their an auction-and-go site that I simply can't find? Anyone?

FWIW - I think an 8 hour time limit is as short as could be expected. If you time out twice in a row, MFL does put you on auto. Perhaps they could do the same based on the average time over some number of rounds, but it's not like they don't do anything.

Never heard of Stopa. Do have a guy in one of my current MFL10 drafts who timed out 4 times in the 1st 8 rounds. Finally he timed out 2 rounds in a row (8th & 9th) and went to auto. This guy really had no excuse. He has the 11/2 picks and I have the 12/1 picks. I have pre-drafted every round, meaning a couple of times he made his 11 pick, both my picks were immediately executed, then in a nano-second he goes away and times out.

I guess I don't really understand why it's not three strikes and you're out.... which simply means you need to predraft instead of holding up an entire draft. Would that really be unreasonable?

On the 1st/2nd round turn he was on the clock for ~15 hours. I guess he was going for some serious strategy sessions. And he just took another ~15 hours, so according to MFL he's all good. I guess Mark Stopa is a "Fantasy football writer" for rotowire(?) when he isn't "helping" his clients in court....

Actually, I like your 3 strike suggestion and think it could work in conjunction with their existing 2 in row rule.

Has anyone else noticed some ODD strategies this season in the 10's this year? In a league right now where one guy picked his first TE at pick 17.09. Another team in the same league where a guy has 9 WR's... SO FAR with two more picks to go. I don't think I've ever seen an 11 WR team but it would certainly be interesting to see how he finishes. And these weren't late picks invested in WR in a shotgun approach either. Two of his top three picks were WR's, and six of his top ten picks were WR. I like to think I try to swim against the stream a bit but I certainly have never gone that far.

By the way, checking back in with on-going soap opera that is mark stopa.... he did finish his draft. Finally. Only took 7 HOURS and 24 minutes every time he was on the clock so you have to give him a gold star for that. To be fair this is the roster he managed to forge out of gold concentrating so hard on those picks for all those hours....

Bradford, Sam MIN QB 235.4 - 15.12
Wilson, Russell SEA QB 294.6 - 5.12

... and this guy apparently writes fantasy football articles. Maybe he should join a league where he can be on the clock for 12+ hours at a time. It's hard for me to imagine what his team would have looked like if he would have tried to keep it under 7 hours. I guess if Dalvin Cook is the MVP and..... well, and he can count for two roster spots each week. Here's to you mark stopa. May the next ambulance foreclosure you chase be far, far away from me.

Anyone else falling into the same old trap of getting over-invested in a few players? Every year I say THIS YEAR I'm not going to get too much exposure on a single player..... but I never follow through.

Some early guys I'm having a tough time laying off...Player(ADP)

Spencer Ware(43)

Drew Brees(71)

Mohamed Sanu(192)

Chris Ivory(202)

I'm not even a huge fan of Ivory, he's just been falling way below that ADP in drafts I've been in. Are we all 100% sure he won't be the starter in '17? I just got him with the last pick in round 20.

Who are some of the players that are landing on a lot of your rosters?

Cobb and Jeremy Hill were way up on my board compared to others early on, they are my highest owned players along with my favorite 20th rounder Kerley. I've had an abnormal distribution so far with lots of late picks. While I've spread out my 1st and 2nds well, I've ended up with a lot of Kelce and CJ Anderson.  Been picking up a lot of the Black Unicorn in the mid-rounds and Tavon Austin before the Defenses start calling.

I really like Sanu, but for some reason have none of him, also think Ivory is currently a value play, but I could see him being a post-June 1 cut so I'm limiting how often I go there until the draft.

Interesting, thanks for the feedback.

I was higher on Cobb before they signed Bennett at TE. Interesting take on Kerley. Do you think Garcon is going to disappoint as the #1 WR? I know you were a big Garcon advocate last season, and I was to a lesser extent. 

It's POSSIBLE that Ivory could get cut, but I have a tough time believing it will happen. He's just played better at points in his career than I've seen Yeldon play thus far. Jags are also $50+mil under the cap so unless they draft either a very early RB or a pair of later RB's I think they just make their team worse for no reason. For that matter I just kind of believe in the talent on Ivory and there's even a chance that he could slide into a different RBBC situation with a better OL and/or higher scoring offense even if he were cut. All the RB's being drafted ~pick#200 have their warts but he seems to have the least to me. 

If JAX doesn't spend a pick on Fournette/Cook/Mixon..... would you still worry about Ivory? I suppose a Foreman/Perine/Conner pick would be a slight cause for concern in that they are power runners but I guess I've just seen Ivory be successful in that role in the NFL and I'm not sure if those guys will even be able to cut it in the league.

Yes, Garcon was a favorite of mine last year in the 14-15 round range. He's probably priced appropriately at his ADP. But with all the turnover in SF, I'm skeptical year one will provide much value outside of Hyde. I'd much rather buy Ertz/Bennett or Gio/Hill/Woodhead/Powell or even a QB in his range and throw my 20th rounder at a 40/500/3 season out of Kerley.

Tavon Austin is my cutoff WR so far this year.

If there's no RB drafted in the first two days for Jax, then yes, that would ease any concerns about Ivory. I still think he's an excellent pick and a worthwhile risk, as I've taken him 7 times already.

Their new Terms of Service this year (http://home.myfantasyleague.com/mfl10s-terms-of-service/) show some states that are not eligible.  Colorado is now one of them.  I was able to play last year.

What would be ideal is a draft-and-go website that reacts to it's customers suggestions(like DEEP leagues and/or auctions) and accepts bit-coin. I guess 2017 is still too early to make this a reality?

I'm all over Demaryius (sp?).  To the point where I'm stopping myself from taking him in many drafts even though I think he's the best player at that point.  I love the guy for "guaranteed" (knock on wood) production.  I just don't want an injury to 1 guy hurting 50%+ of my teams.

 

I have a decent amount of Gore, since he's, apparently, going to play forever.  And in the 10-12th rounds, why not?

 

And I have a decent # of Kamara if only because I think his price will rise post-draft.  I'm guessing Fournette/Cook/Mixon aren't going to rise too much after the draft, but Kamara, and to a certain extent Foreman, could jump if landing in the right situation.  If not, they'll probably be worth a 12th-14th, anyways, and no big loss.

I was boycotting (pouting actually) because I did so poorly last year. I didn't even place in any league. 

I went to see if I recognized any of the "most leagues" leader names and I have a $100 credit! Boycott over. :D

You can't lose with "found money". 

I am pretty surprised by a few of the drafts I've been in thus far. Tight drafting early but it loosens up a great deal in the second half of the draft. Some real wild darts being thrown imo.

I agree with you on Kamara. Disagree a bit on Mixon/Foreman, but LOVE the rookie talk. Thomas/Howard made a lot of people money last season(both were incredible values before the NFL draft). What are your opinions on the WR/TE's?

1.01 has now been on the clock for just about 5 hours. Good to see things are still the same. 

Nah, you're being charitable. Seems to be even worse this season.

I haven't played in nearly as many this year as in the past and it's pretty common to have people timeout in the FIRST ROUND. You have "experts" on podcasts actually saying that they intentionally milk the entire 8 hour clock on the glimmer of hope that one of the two players they are considering just happens to have a news blurb tip them in one direction or another while they are on the clock! If you are really that desperately afraid of making a pick here's a tip..... just wait until after the 4th preseason game you jack-###. These $10 leagues are supposed to be for fun. I swear it's like their strategy is to slow-playing a game of solitaire so on the off chance a meteor hits and kills life as we know it they have less likelihood of losing the game of solitaire. Oooooh, you know all the angles don't you genius! I think these early leagues are mostly full of industry types and degenerate gamblers, but somehow I doubt that we degenerate gamblers are so lazy that we don't even check in on a draft for days at a time. Que the Don Knotts voice, "Well some of us are simply so busy we can't possible take the ten minutes to check in on our smart phones a day to... blah blah blah.... and yet we sign up for these leagues anyway." Sometimes I honestly think the "FF industry" is strangling every last breath of fun out of this hobby.

Really looking for something new. May give this a try although I have very little experience with it and don't know anyone that has tried it. After the Phenoms-debacle I'm always a bit skeptical these days....  https://dataforceff.com/   ... if anyone has any experience with the "Email Auction" format I'd love to hear it. Sounds like a lot less time waiting for a handful of people to make their pick..... and well, AUCTION!

FWIW - I just created an account at dataforce. I have not actually joined any of their leagues yet.

Most of their rules are pretty clearly stated.

Payouts seem competitive, but there are separate fees depending on your deposit method and your state of residence. They don't factor in these fees when telling you what the return is (kinda sneaky IMO). These fees will inflate the payout percentage when compared to other sites. Prize money appears to be safe.

You can sign up for a league without paying. The league owners are not confirmed until everyone has paid. So the sign up status can show 15 people signed up for a 12 team league with 9 paid. Personally I prefer to have people pay when they sign up.

It looks like the lowest buy-in is $20.

That was one of the things I liked about the site.

Do you mind sharing what kind of league you signed up for? Let us know how quickly it fills. I would like to try an auction after the NFL draft and am hoping that even will drum up enough interest to fill a league.
