What round are we drafting Jimmy G.?
Or is Deshaun Watson good again?
You should be able to get Jimmy relatively late, I think his ADP is 90 or something.

Don't know about Watson tbh, his td% was ridiculous last season, there should be some regression there. I think he should still be good, don't know if he's worth the draft price tho.

It's that time of year again: when I think I have a decent draft, then other people tear it apart and I realize I made terrible mistakes

I should apologize in advance for what I turn into during fantasy season. Imma say some shit and it’s gonna get weird.

I just don’t want to go back to staying in bed, staring at my phone all day on Sundays.

That Oline is terrible plus Watson has had too many injuries. Big pass unless last round.

If you have to ask what round to draft a qb its already over for you. (see never draft a qb until the late rounds)
Rules are meant to be broken. I get that same speech when I get a kicker or defense in round 8. Three weeks later, oh look at that, my kicker got more points than your running back.

I don't like set in stone rules like that for drafting but that's generally what happens. always be flexible though. it's all about the value plays. if value falls don't pass because you just have to take x-position at your spot or have to wait until x-round to go for certain positions. except defense and kicker. take those last for the love of god.

What week shud it be? Noob here
16.

Week 17 usually there are a few teams that got the #1 or 2 seeds locked down, so they rest their starters on the last game.

Last season, Gurley was the second best player in fantasy and by far the best RB and he sat out week 17. Can only imagine how many teams got screwed by that.

If there's a league here, I'm down. I was in one of the gaf leagues that transferred over.

Adam scott avatar was OP I think. Lol

Typically... what time does most standard leagues do drafting by? Mid August? I literally forgot and i've been doing this for years, trying to get my head around since im going on vacay for like half the month

And you can say that about half the starting kickers in every league on any given week. Which is why taking one that early is silly when you could grab someone who will have a much bigger impact for you at a position of need. Its the same logic with a QB. Its not about points scored its about positional strength.

The closer to the start of the season the better. I usually like to do them at least after Week 3 in the preseason. This way you can watch the starters play a little and get a feel for some players, who is getting the majorities of the carries for a team and etc.

Also, drafting too early is dangerous because a few players will probably get hurt on those preseason games, and the worst feeling in fantasy is to draft a guy with a high pick and the dude is out before the season even started.

My people usually did it first week of September after a few pre season games.

Aye, good points. So i wasn't tripping. I remember doing it around the end of August, phew, ok so i just have to make sure no one pulls a fast one on us, thanks

I was able to pick up Alvin Kamara at the start. I probably would’ve won if David Johnson didn’t get injured.

This is my year and I’m doing it my way. Reckless. Unpredictable. Dumb enough to work.

Definitely looking to join a league or two. Keeper, even. Now that the Trump/Kim stuff has died down here I'm ready for football to be back.

Same, I finally made it to the top tier of Gaf league and then the site exploded. Wanna join an ERA one, my long standing one, and probably one more.

Hey UberTag, I know you're not the commish but any word on the money league, or if we're even having one this year?
No word as of yet... although waiting until the last minute is hardly unusual for Cloudy.
It would be a shame to retire No Quitters before it hits its 10th season... and I still have yet to manage to win the darn thing, too.

Ok hopefully he gets it going. especially after how I went out in the playoffs last year (that damn Eagles defensive TD) I'm itching to get back in!

Cloudy renewed NQ back in May? Just haven't heard from him since then.

Anyway whether it's Uber or me or someone else, plenty of people who could admin. I try to be co-commish these days since I'm overseas though.

(Still looking for two people to join my 10 year keeper, actually, had a few friends leave because they finally had it with Trump)

Last year, I was fortunate enough to get Gurley in the second round and Kamara in the SIXTEENTH. I won my league even after picking such winners in the first five rounds as Mike Evans, Jameis Winston, Amari Cooper, and Tyler Eiftert. That's how OP Gurley was at the end of the year.

And because we play a one year keeper league, I get Kamara this year for a 14th round pick. Pretty sweet.

I keep telling myself I'm not going to care as much about fantasy football, then I win both leagues I'm in last year and I'm right back in.

It'd be a shame if I couldnt join one online league.

I have two offline drafts, so it's nice to see other people's perspective before I draft irl.
