Invite sent...I think. Let me know when/if you get it.

Draft order is not set yet...when the league fills, I'll randomly draw names using the "write each team name on a tiny piece of paper, wad it up and pick names for draft positions from 12 spot to 1 spot" method and then change the draft order accordingly.

Got it and I am ready to go. Can you make this like the NBA draft and put about 7 or 8 more "#7" pieces of paper in the hat? It will be our little secret :shades:

Well...if there are more papers with your name, that would seal your fate as the 12th pick, since I pull papers in inverse draft order ....from 12-1...it's more dramatic for me that way.

Wario...got your intial PM...send me your email address and I'll send the invite.

after wario, there should be 7 more teams available.

Thanks for getting the votes in regarding how we'll run the draft.

Still need to hear from Earl, Wario and TD. I haven't voted yet and won't unless I need to break a tie.

Wario...you still need to accept the invite into the league and set up on EA Sports.

After we discuss the draft method, we'll delve into dates.

If online wins: We draft later...maybe preseason game 3-ish?
If offline at TT wins: we'll need to start earlier in order to give ample time for the draft to finish.
If offline via PM wins: 15 rounds...that's three work weeks at one round a week. You do the math.

I find that drafting in the middle to late is where championships are one. That's not to say that you can't win from anywhere though. Meh.

I've been playing FF since 1991, the time before Al Gore invented the internet. (Yes, I know the internet was live at that time, but normal people did not use it.) We used newspaper box scores and live drafts. And we walked to school uphill both ways. In the snow.

OK...votes are in for the draft...

It'll be offline at TT.com by a 5-4 vote. Two teams didn't vote and I didn't either, although I would have been the 6th vote for TT.com.

Next up....I'll be back after some research on how long these things normally take and report back with a draft start date/time.

I'm assuming the top pick is Tomlinson???? TD...can you verify? :whip:

In spite of all the grief I'm sure to take from ESPN for passing on Reggie Bush, that's an affirmative on Tomlinson. Throw in the caveat that nothing happens to him prior to the draft.

I'm out of pocket until July 11. Shoot me an e-mail where you sent the e-vite if I need to do anything before then.

HuttoKarl
07-02-2007, 10:00 AM
After some deliberation, I want to set the draft start date for Wednesday, August 1st. This gives us time to get the draft done in time for the regular season. I realize that we risk player preseason injuries, but we do need time to complete the draft and with everyone's schedules, this is the best way to do it.

I'll create a draft thread for everyone to make their picks and will update rosters on our league site after each round (if the site allows me to do so). I'll also keep a running list on the first page of the draft thread to keep things easily trackable...we don't want to run the risk of two teams trying to draft Jabbar Gaffney, now, do we?

The draft thread will be created on Tuesday, July 31st, right here in the Tailgate section.

Well...technically, you have to.

TD's said that barring an act of gosh, LT is the top pick...guess that would mean that you can announce the #2 pick if you really want to....of course, both picks are subject to change when the actual draft date hits.

It will be a pretty easy pick for me with LT gone. Welcome to the CarrWrecked Mr. Steven Jackson....:victory: That is unless I decide to go in another direction by the drafts start.

I joined a league on NFL.com and weighed it heavy towards the Texans. I ended up with Matt, AJ, Owen, Ahman, and the Texans D. So hopefully we will do good. I also ended up with Lee Evans, Brian Westbrook and Braylon Edwards. Not bad, I quess. I am not sure about my kicker though. I may have to go kicker first in this league.

That's why I'm VERY careful to read the scoring system before the draft. I've been burned not paying attention before. QBs are less valuable in this league.

HuttoKarl
07-30-2007, 05:14 PM
Passing TDs worth only 3 points ? That doesnt seem fair

It's pretty standard scoring for most leagues I've ever been in. When TD's for passing are worth 6 points, it throws the scoring system out of whack and overvalues the QB.

With the last pick in the first round, the Mighty Hutto Stinkweasels select:

Willie Parker, RB PIT

and then rushes back to announce the first pick of the second round:

Rudi Johnson, RB CIN

And you did not even need to draft from within the AFC South. :shades:

I'm pretty happy with those RB's from such a lame draft position.

I could can the clock stoppage at night, but that's rather uncool. Drafts like this take time. To speed things up, anyone can send a predraft list to me and checo...one of us is bound to be able to pick for you when your time comes up.

Or people can just check in more often. The season is still a month away, so I think we're going to be ok. I'll keep PMing the slackers. :bat:

Does PM still require folks to come to texanstalk? If so, it might not be a useful quick-turn comm mechanism.

I propose we each PM our email address to Karl, for him to provide a helpful kick in the shorts if/when such kick is needed.

"slow style" drafts can go very swiftly...but you have to have a league full of people who are awake and who give a darn about the others in the league. I usually run a few leagues a year and I do mostly slow drafts with a 12 or 24 hour window....we generally get a round or two done per day....but I am also very picky about who I let in my leagues.

I feel pretty lucky. I didn't think Palmer would still be there at 24. He was my top rated QB. (Gut feeling Manning will slip a little this year)

I was going back and forth on Maurice Jones-Drew and Thomas Jones. I really like Jones with the NYJ, but the Jags schedule looks really good for the running game. I was kinda hoping the decision would be made for me before my pick.

Man I hate waiting so long between picks. :swing:

Unrelated to our draft but did anyone see the AFC South Update? It was from Mini Camp so it is a little dated but just wanted to share the info incase someone overlooked it.

AFC South Update
By A.B. Koontz




Houston Texans

Minicamp just came to end for the 2006, 6-10 Texans, and as a surprise, Head Coach Kubiak held back a number of players for additional conditioning and practices. Apparently, Kubiak feels the extra time can help his boys finally get over the hump. Of course this was the same coach who installed a mandatory bowling tournament amongst players and coaches… but I digress.

The real news in camp is the departure of former #1 overall draft pick David Carr and the arrival of the alleged star to be, Matt Schaub . Most of the results so far have been promising, but expecting Mr. Schuab to better the 75.5 QB rating from David Carr is wishful thinking.
With an offensive line still in disarray and no other real offensive weapons available, Schaub's value right now can't be very high, even though he is quickly getting on the same page with star wideout Andre Johnson . Andre even went so far as to speak out on his new QB's behalf: "When you look at, the differences that I see is that with David (Carr) you had to wait on the ball a little bit more," Johnson said. "With Matt, he's pretty decisive with what he's doing. He's going to get back in his drop and let the ball go. When you're in you're rout, you don't have to wait on the ball or anything like that." This will be a closely monitored situation for fantasy owners with a complete hit or miss waiting in the wings for both Matt and his pampered WR. If the targets are there early on for the young tandem, this could be another long and productive '06 type of season for Andre. If Matt struggles out the gate it could be an even longer season for fantasy owners of either player. Regardless, approach with caution.

On the RB front, former # 3 overall Fantasy RB Ahman Green seems to be drawing rave reviews from coaches and teammates. According to numerous sources Ahman seems to be 100% healed from his 2005 season-ending knee surgery and has the Texans really excited about the running game in '07. Kubiak has even thrown out the "25 or so carries" talk which probably sounds really good for fantasy buyers…well, at least until week 8 or so when he breaks down. Ahman still has a lot of talent but keep in mind that even BEFORE his knee injury he still couldn't get 4 yards a carry so count me in as a non-believer for him at two years later + a major surgery + a terrible offensive line to = fantasy stardom. I think I'll take the under.

Rumor has it the Texans are also looking to add another WR to the mix before the start of camp. This is another situation to watch closely as it greatly affects a number of players. If you see a nice veteran name out on the market look for the Texans to show some interest. With that in mind, don't be surprised to see Keenan McCardell possibly get into the mix.




Indianapolis Colts


The 2006 Superbowl champion Colts come into the 2007 season looking to be the first team to repeat since the Patriots of '03 & '04. That sounds all swell and nice, but how does this amount to fantasy stats, right? Well, Peyton, Marvin and Wayne will still be amongst the best if not the very best at their positions; so we all know where their value is. The real story on the WR front may be with 1st round draft pick Anthony Gonzales . The Ohio State star steps in as an immediate starter in the slot and could be one of the most productive rookies in the NFL. Peyton has already been raving about Gonzo's talent and even sat him down in film sessions to go over what role Brandon Stokley served in previous seasons. The Colts offense will always be among the league's best, and if Gonzo's work ethic is as good as advertised he could be a quick fit in the Peyton-led attack. A rookie serving as the 3rd WR on any team usually isn't anything to write home about, but keep in mind Stokley caught 10 TD's and had over 1000 yards receiving in the exact same spot in the offense as young Gonzo. If Peyton is connecting to Gonzales in the preseason, watch out; he could become a very nice sleeper for you in the upcoming season. Keep a close eye on this situation.





If you ask veteran fantasy owners around the league the player that seems to be getting as much hype as just about anyone is second year RB Joseph Addai . Addai is coming off a very impressive rookie campaign and steps in as the bonafide starter and superstar-in-the-making for year 2. Beyond the additional workload, Addai appears to be more involvement in the passing game as well. "I think that's where he's really trying to expand his game by putting him in the slot or putting him out wide." Peyton Manning said. "He's worked on his route-running. You like to get those kinds of matchups with them on linebackers." Addai already had good receiving numbers in '06 so folks in a PPR league should really take notice. Speaking of taking notice RB DeDe Dorsey also seems to be a common name thrown around by the Colts coaches as well as Peyton. Keep in mind Addai has never carried a full workload (even in his days at LSU) and the Colts were very happy with the two-back system last season. If I'm an Addai buyer, this worries me a bit. There is no doubt Addai's numbers go up, but if DeDe starts to get some touches early don't be surprised if the Colts try a little more of the committee approach again in '07. This hits Addai's value a bit but also makes Mr. Dorsey a real deep sleeper to keep on your radar; could be an interesting situation to watch so stay tuned.

Lastly for those of you in an IDP league, take special notice of LB Freddie Keiaho . The departure of Pro Bowler Cato June opens the revolving door of Colts Linebackers and the Hawaii grad stands to be the next in line to benefit. Mike Peterson became Marcus Washington . Marcus Washington became David Thornton . David Thornton became Cato June and now it appears Cato becomes Freddie Keiaho. In each of the aforementioned seasons, the new starter eventually became a top 15 Fantasy Linebacker and could have been had very late, or in many cases, completely after the draft. If the early camp news is any indication, this trend doesn't seem to be ending anytime soon. Put Freddie on your radar as a late round steal.




Jacksonville Jaguars


So mark me down as intrigued. It appears that Daunte Culpepper actually has a very realistic chance of signing with the Jags this off-season. According to numerous source,s the Jaguars were waiting for the grievance hearing scheduled with the Dolphins before making their official offer for Daunte. But with the recent release of Daunte, the Jags are ready to pounce on their desired QB to be. And honestly, the more I think about the deal, the more this makes perfect sense.

Byron Sandwhich is in the last year of his contract and even though Daunte isn't quite what he used to be, he still can outrun Jack Del Rio and that's more than I can say about his possible predecessor. I've always liked the Jags WR's talent and if Daunte can get into camp in time this could be an interesting story to watch.


Outside of slow QB news there is a player getting all the buzz that actually can run. The energetic Maurice Jones-Drew , aka MoJo, emerged as a solid #2 Fantasy back last season. He has all the tools to have an even better season in '07. Mr. Drew has made some odd comments in the off season about how he expects to be the backup and return kicks and what not but personally, I don't believe it. Fragile Fred has been pretty durable as of late and somehow got a nice contract extension. I can't see this guy being too much of a factor next season. Couple this with the return of former Seminole Greg Jones and you have the makings of a crowded backfield. Mini camp didn't seem to give us much indication of what to expect here, but keep your eyes on this one. Fred wasn't paid for nothing and Greg could be a goal line stealer for both backs. Right now I'm letting MoJo slide past me in drafts until I have a better idea of this picture. I suggest you do the same.




Tennessee Titans


No I will not talk about PacMan Jones here…

So the very first week of mini camp and the Madden Curse is already on its way. Ok maybe I am getting ahead of myself here. Vince Young was held out of practice for a mild calf strain a few weeks ago but it wasn't anything serious. If you want my honest opinion though, Vince getting the true "Madden Curse" might be the best move possible, it would get him out of a dreadful team and everyone can just say "Well Vince was hurt, so we expected this." Norm Chow is supposed to be an offensive genius and he is going to need every bit of that to pull off this offense doing ANYTHING in '07. Norm has been quoted as saying he wants Vince to run more and there are rumblings of him leading the team in TD's next year. On paper that sounds good but when you consider the running backs currently are the Cecil Fielder impersonator Lendale White , the OTHER Chris Henry and Quinton Ganther , it doesn't sound nearly as good. And yes, I know Chris Brown re-signed and yes, I know I didn't mention him. That was on purpose. Lendale claims he is finally healed from a hamstring injury but the only MILDY intriguing player here is Chris Henry. He will be zero risk and a possible mid-level reward if he can overtake the juggernaut that is Lendale, Quinton Ganther and "Those We Do Not Speak Of."

Gee, what else can I report here? Maybe this is why all the press about the Titans is about Pacman. There just isn't anything on this offense to report and we all know no one is touching that team defense. Now, I have seen some people have Ben Troupe as a sleeper; don't buy it. The TE's will be involved, but Ben has had more than his fair share of chances and blown every one. Former Vince Young teammate from Texas, Bo Scaife, is the only TE worth owning and that will be VERY late at best.

I didn't misspell Leftwich's name that was the writer,lol.

Checo...you can pick for me if my turn comes up tonite. Use your best judgement.

Guys...we should really consider trying to speed this up a bit. I'm as guilty as anyone of being slow. I will attempt to avoid slowness at all costs from this point on.

If we really start getting to crunch time and haven't come close to finishing, I"ll shorten the clock to 6 hours.

HuttoKarl
08-08-2007, 10:20 AM
what time do we pick for him if he doesn't respond?

plenty of time left. Old School picked 16 hours ago, minus the 9 hour clock stoppage at night.

Maybe I'll just speed it up by eliminating the stoppage and forcing people to look at their computers first thing in the morning.

I'll figure that out later. I don't think we're in any danger of not finishing yet.

TD
08-08-2007, 10:32 AM
I pick a bit, but really we're more than OK...We're on pace to finish in about two weeks. First game is a little over four weeks away.

I really don't want too much time to second guess my picks anyway.

Cool, I don't think we are in danger of not finishing either, however, I really would prefer not to be drafting all the way through the month. I am game for shortening the night clock.

With pick 7.02 Checo's Carr Wrecked selects RB Ladell Betts - Washington Redskins.

Ha ha. You don't know how close I came to cutting you off at the knees by taking Betts. The only reason I didn't was I thought he might make it another round. Damn good pick. I bet he winds up better than Portis.

I am high as a kite on Portis if he can stay healthy. Looks like I timed the Betts pick just right to handcuff him. Although unless Portis goes down with an injury and misses time, Betts will be worthless fodder on my bench. The talent difference is about as large as the gap in the grand canyon. Anyways, I like your pick there, Joey Galloway is underrated in possibly his last hurrah before the new guy takes over...

I am going out of town for a week starting Saturday morning (going to Vegas, baybeeee!!). So I guess I am relegated to picks from a cheatsheet. HK or Checo (whoever will be handling it), let me know an e-mail addy that I can mail one to. I'll be putting together a list from my master, since we're getting to the later rounds.
