I'm so excited already!


#1

Is it wrong that I’m already excited about our draft? I’m spending some of my Sunday in building round 2/3 of my draft board already. Cant get enough of it!


#2

Not in the slightest… by way of preparation, I’ve been doing a 23 round 12 team dynasty start up draft the last few days :football:


#3

Haha I have something similar starting at the end of the month, will play second fiddle to Noel’s league however. :smiley:


#4

Been planning since it finished


#5

:wink: That’s expected of you coach!


#6

The first 3 rounds of my draft board are complete, the easy 3 lol


#7

It’s tricky when you factor in each coach had there own thoughts!!


#8

There are several different strategies to take for sure, that choice is one of the hardest to make. My first 3 rounds include a few names that might appear over rated and don’t include a few names that some would expect to see.

You guys make me feel so flakey - I just wing it in on the day - as second guessing who everyone else will pick plus not knowing your draft position till the day makes there to many variables to be worrying about it in imo!

I am so glad the draft spot is random and not known in advance as you guys would be way ahead of the game with your war like planning where as I like to just go with the flow on the day - it’s a gut/feel thing for me! :smile:

Don’t get me wrong perpetration is important but going with hunches are critical as well.
I have always said the one thing about drafts that has always been true is " you can lose the whole season with a bad one"
Also never listen to experts !!


#11

Hunches and projections, if not the same thing they are v close. You can’t
build a board purely on last year’s form so hunches/projections are a must
imo


#12

It’s all good fun!
My draft board has changed overnight - with the new PAT rule announced, inevitably some teams will go for 1 point less often and will risk a 2 pointer more. Which devalues kickers even further, and makes you wonder who will benefit - Beast Mode pounding home a few extra fantasy points a game while Steven Haushka sits and watches… who knows?!

Mostly going to take it easy in June, but I expect in July and August I will tweak my board most days and do a mock draft most days (is that too obsessive?!)


#13

Everybody has their way Jon, I love studying player data, the fact that I
have a draft to attend just gives me an excuse.

Now, if I could only stop trading for IR players the study might do me some
good ; )


#14

Gordon came by on the weekend to help me put up a fence in the garden. We obviously had our NFL talks and that has started a ‘fire’ in me that I don’t know how to put out lol. I have done lots of mock drafts and research since and I just can’t get enough of it. This has obviously all paid off and I’ve finally nailed down my first pick: Tebow @ Eagles - how is that not a win/win :wink:


#15

That looks like a top pick there dude, no need for a backup I would imagine ; )

Is the fence still standing? hehe


#16

Any idea how many of the original 16 are playing again in 2015?


#17

Dean - I think it is 14 of the original 16. Everyone but Seagull Tim and James Kemp?


#18

This is my understanding too, was not sure why Tim earned the name Seagull but then recalled him being from Brighton lol


#19

Where do the two new people come from (geographically)?


#20

Assuming it’s the same two that Noel announced earlier in the year : Chris Waterhouse from Norwich, and John Clavering from Australia! (surely not flying in from Oz just for the draft… it was wild enough when Drew travelled here last year!)
