Last round.

Yes, the team who got Kamira is graced by God, but choosing an undrafted good player to only loose your 14th pick is good strategy. It will add an additional choice on which way to go in your draft.

if i remember correctly, i didnt have any waiverwire pickups or sweet late round flyers that panned out.
So i will just keep Russell Wilson QB Seattle Seahawks.
Picked in the 7 round.

That's a good play. Wilson should be a top 5 QB if not higher, and getting him in the 7th isn't bad.

Likely Deshaun Watson in the last round. Can't beat the value if he plays like he did prior to his injury.

Damn, I was so going to throw my dice at him if he were available. As well as D. Hopkins, but it looks like he's being taken as well.

Yeah, we started on July 30th last year.


Ok, keepers. Keep any player you drafted and lose that round. I think its fine to set up a draft order first to help all decide, if anyone disagrees feel free to share.


Have we decided what to do with players picked up on waivers? Since we're running low on time I say we set up a vote to run for a week or so with the options of:

-Lose round 14
-Lose round 8
-Lose their ADP
-Cant keep players picked up off waivers, only drafted players.


Let me know what you think.


I can re-start the league page and set up a draft order Monday night.

I'm for the lose round 14, although the lose round 8 would be my second choice.

Just as important though, and we discussed this, the draft order last year for our first season for picking a keeper was swayed towards those who drafted earliest.

I mean I'd love to have had a chance to keep Antonio Brown. So we suggested a draft order in reverse of last year. I'm betting at least 8 of the top 10 players will be kept and unavailable for draft.

I think this reverse order from last year is needed for balance. We decided on two keepers so this year is important to reverse the order so each player had the same average picking order over the two keeper seasons. We could go back to normal random draw next year

I thought that we were only going to keep 1 player.

Lets finalize this and get ready for the draft.

I wrote a nice post but lost it. Agree with 14th round or 8th. How do we want that to affect future seasons? Seems unfair to have a high value keeper at round 14 every year. Deshawn Watson could be great but I don't think I should get him round 14 year after year.

@Venge - the idea was 1 keeper this season, 2 keepers next season.

I think we should wait until next year for that. Let's see how we like the 1 keeper league this year.

I would go so far as to say you can't keep the same player for back to back years. That allows for players to flow back into the draft.

Ok, lets plan on starting one week from today.


August 4th at 9AM CST.

I'll send an email out through the Yahoo page.




Feel free to message anyone and remind them.

As far as draft order goes, we discussed it last year, but never agreed on anything. If i recall correctly. If thats the case I think we should do as we've always done. I'm working, but if someone wants to look up last years thread and see, that would be cool. Once that is settled we can finalize draft order.

I'm ok with whatever happens, but I really think the draft order MUST be reversed. Thats one of the rules I'd like to lobby for heavily. The draft order during the year we pick our keeper is of utmost importance .

If we random again we could get players who chose 1st, 2nd, or 3rd, who are most likely keeping their round one player, getting to pick ahead of everyone else again.

That's like NOT have a snake style pick method. We did discuss this. Ì don't feel like digging up old posts but it's the one thing I stand by, and this was before last years ranks were given.

The posts below were made before we were given our draft order.

I'd also like to state that if we are going to institute a keeper league that our draft order should be the reverse standings order for the year.

IE when I come in last again, I want to draft first next year :p

Yes, once we start a keepers league, the draft order becomes a bit more important to an extent. I would also like to see the draft order tinkered with after this season if we institute keepers as Obdi pointed out.

The bottom 6 players could be randomly assigned the top 6 spots. The top 6 players would be randomly assigned the bottom 6 spots.

This would help stabilize things in the general direction Obdi suggests even if not exactly what he suggested, while still giving us some randomness which I believe is both important and fun.

I am fine keeping one or two players. You are right that one player would probably be better in order to see if we all like it. Personally I am fine with alternating draft position based on performance from the previous year that is a good idea. But like the keeper league should be done going forward. :crybaby:

Like i said, we discussed it but didnt decide anything.

I'd be good with going with reverse standings from last year, like the real draft, if thats what we want to do.
