DVDTalk 2018 Fantasy Football FREE League

Already?

Not gmal's DVDTalk Free League has been renewed for the 2018-2019 season. Invitations have already been e-mailed to all of last year's team owners:

Blackjack Boozehound
Butch Doesn't Get It
Cincinnati Stingers
Fat Cats
ForWhomTheBellTolls
Frontal LeBeautomy (me)
Gashouse Grizzlies
Gridiron Law
HitEmWithTheHein
mas_Tequila
Metal Mobsters
UP Laters

The draft time and date is currently scheduled for 9:00 PM EDT Sunday, August 26, 2018, but can be changed if necessary. The draft order will be predetermined randomly.

Based on league feedback, there are a couple of changes this season. The FLEX position is now WR/RB/TE instead of WR/RB, and the number of bench spots has been reduced from 8 to 6.

E-mail/PM/post any questions. Thanks!

Is everyone back again this year? If so, any chance we could draw for spots? It's research time.

I will have the draft order determined by the end of the week. I also sent an e-mail (via Yahoo) to all team owners.

Well, at least my turnaround time won't be long!

For those of you that are fantasy junkies, if you're interested in trying out Yahoo's college fantasy and know you'll be around right before this draft, feel free to join my (we're just seeing if Yahoo can compare to what we've been using for a few years) college league: https://college.fantasysports.yahoo....77042ad4b5df0f to try it out.

I would join, but that's the same time as the All Star League Draft.

Re: DVDTalk 2018 Fantasy Football FREE League

I'll be there. I hope the All Star League draft only takes about an hour and twenty minutes so I can rest my eyes for a few minutes. My vision started to get blurry staring at my computer screen during the Auction draft.

Re: DVDTalk 2018 Fantasy Football FREE League

I’m out of town Sunday, and my flight back is at 10 ET, but I’ll draft in person as much as I can!

Unfortunately not, but I'll be sure to let you know if anyone leaves (or isn't invited back) next season!

A little something to listen to - I always put my "The Power And The Glory" CD on for background music during drafts...

Re: DVDTalk 2018 Fantasy Football FREE League

I think this draft went much slower than the All-Star one, which was done in an hour, but this one only managed to get through 12 rounds by then. Granted this one had extra complexity with IDP, but not many had been drafted by then--I think people were just spending more time to think, which is fine. I was getting on a plane, though, and had to shut down at that time. Desperate to avoid Marqise Lee, I then queued a bunch of receivers and IDPs, then it auto-drafted me two IDPs!

So who ended up with Demarco Murray this time?

Also man, if Fat Cats was upset about the All Star draft grade...

You know, it felt a bit slower to me as well, but in reality only ran about 10 minutes longer than the other draft (and had one extra round).

I'm happier with my draft in this league than in the other one, which means I'll probably end up in 11th again in this league, and contend again in the other one.

I wouldn't be surprised if people started leaving during the later rounds, which would've sped things up considerably.

Re: DVDTalk 2018 Fantasy Football FREE League

We need to change the weekly waivers to Game Time - Tuesday. Someone was able to pick up Keke Coutee today and in most leagues you shouldn't be able to pick up a player who played on Thursday night the next day.
