In.

So who's coming in 2nd place?

BobbyJ
08-24-2012, 09:22 AM
I'm all set up. Since I'm a realist, I will go out on a limb and prematurely predict my 9th place victory. As the new guy I wouldn't feel right placing in the top 3! So 9 feels about right. I can beat 3 people right?!

I've yet to be beaten in an FP league, so I think 2nd place is a good goal for you.

Cool, thanks DBF.

A note that it's always a good idea to log in prior to draft day and change the rankings around to your liking. That way, if for some reason you can't make it, or lose connection, you'll still be taking your highest ranked guys.

Thursday at 9 works for me

Excellent. I'm assuming from the lack of responses otherwise that Thursday's working for everyone else as well?

The draft time is bad for me, but I don think we should change it. I'm the only one with an issue. I'm going to Browns Bears for the first half. Has anyone tried to draft via phone, do the draft apps work on them?

Rich, go to the front page of the leagues site and under League Notes, the first bullet it says "Test the Live draft client. Click here". Go there on your mobile phone and make sure you not on the mobile version of the site. If the test works your good to go.

Sorry about that. I'm not sure how the mobile app works. I'm sure you could test it in a mock draft at some point prior to Thursday to see how well it works.

Dont use the app. Go to the actual website (non-mobile site) on your iphone and youll be good. I tested it on mine and it worked

9 of 12 are signed up. I believe (based on a completely wild guess looking at the team names) that we're still waiting on Biggie, StarvinMarvin, and Kidjock.

Still waiting on 2 people. Draft is in 2 nights.

Docta

Might as well just look for Kidjock's replacement. I've never even seen him post.

Trumpetbdw
08-28-2012, 11:06 PM
Kidjock has a few posts, posting as recently as a few days ago, and was on this site yesterday at some point.

He's the concern, since he's new. I've PMd both he and StarvinMarvin. If I don't hear from them, I will need a backup.

Is anyone interested in acting as an alternate in case we need one or two?

Trumpetbdw
08-29-2012, 04:11 PM
Kidjock is in. We're only waiting on StarvinMarvin. The famished one last logged in a few days ago, so I'm not sure if he's good to go or not. While I'm still holding his spot, if there's anyone else interested in joining the Commish league (Point Per Reception league), let me know, and I'll put you on the waiting list.

Draft is tomorrow at 9 eastern.

Trumpetbdw
08-29-2012, 11:16 PM
We still have a need for a replacement option in case StarvinMarvin doesn't log in tomorrow. Please let me know if interested. First come first served.

Well, I am still going to Bears-Browns riveting week 4 pre-season game tonight and I figured out how to draft on my phone, but the stadium is notoriously bad with cell reception. In case I miss things, I have deleted all the guys I don't want from the top 200 in my draft rankings. So, the team will be unbalanced, but at least won't completely hate some of my picks.

OK, thanks. Hopefully the problems will be fixed by this evening.

Either way, we're now full, which is a good thing. Starvinmarvin is confirmed.

It's PPR, bro. BJGE, Hillis, and Blount aren't going to help you out in that area. Quizz for Colston, let's go, done deal.

BJGE will. The RB he was gonna share carries with, Bernard Scott, is injured, and BJGE would have been the primary redzone back anyway.


He may not put up great overall yardage, but he'll have a lot of touches and a good deal of TD's.

I'm still not quite sure how I ended up with such an odd squad. I am going to pay all season for not pre-setting my draft preferences.

Forte catches enough passes for him and LawFirm. Jackson will catch his fair share as well.

I don't honestly think I'm going 16-0, but I do like my team. My biggest problem is WR. I need Welker to do most of what he's done previously and for 2 or 3 of my other WRs to step up/stay healthy. Or hope that people panic with RBs and get good value out of mine.

Hey we can work out a trade

BobbyJ
08-31-2012, 09:40 AM
QB = C. Newton / J. Locker
RB = D. Sproles / K. Smith / R. Williams / R. Helu
WR = P. Harvin / J. Maclin / P. Garcon / A. Boldin / A. Collie / J. Simpson
TE = R. Gronkowski
K = M. Crosby
DEF = Steelers / Eagles

Tell me how you think I did. I would love for anyone's feedback about good/bad picks I made. Thanks!

Sproles was a steal, but I don't know if Smith is good enough to be your #2 RB. Will be splitting time with LeShoure, and they're focused on passing the ball anyway.

You pretty much got 3 1st-2nd round players in Cam, Gronk, and Sproles, so you'll probably be alright.

Thanks. Yeah I already know RB is a weak spot for me. So considering that, anyone want to trade...lol.

I wish I could, but I don't think I can commit to 7:30 tomorrow. However, if you are able to get 1 more, and are still in need of 1 by tomorrow morning, let me know, and I'll see what I can do as far as pre-ranking some players. Then, if I do get a minute or two, I can sneak in.

Sorry about you missing out on 2. You could go forward with 8. 8 is better than 9. If you get a 9th, then I'll set up some pre-ranks and be your 10th.

Anyone from this league willing to jump in?

Bobby, if you can make 7:30 work, take the spot? I likely won't be there for 7:30 at all, so if you want in, I'll delete my entry and let you take over that 10th spot.

Let me know. I won't delete anything until I hear from you.

Actually, I'm going to extend this a bit further. If my division in the league is like the NBA Eastern Conference, then my team would be the Charlotte Bobcats, which would make me Michael Jordan (owner and GM). So thanks to this league, I've fulfilled a dream when I was a boy, to be like Mike. At least there's something positive with my awful team this year.
