CHUD Fantasy Football 2016
Looking forward to another good year in fantasy football, and simply a better year for my Detroit "Always Keep Hope Alive" Lions. As last year was my first ever jump into the deep end of the pool with a keeper league, I have one quick question: when we pick keepers, does it then affect which round we pick in, or are their any lost rounds based on who we keep.
Just can't quite remember how it all works, and want to make sure I'm keeping the right guys, relative to how they are weighted (or something like that). Good luck to everyone!
If I remember correctly, I think you just bang through the first 3 rounds because everyone has 3 keepers, and if you have a rookie keeper, then you bang through the 4th round, and then you start making picks. Does that sound right?
So sorry to hear that about SD. Not sure which league is his and I know this is probably the last thing he gives even two shits about, but...
If the A league is the keeper league, he did activate it like a month or two ago. But with it being that long ago, I'm not sure if he'll still want to run it or not.
I also saw the Yahoo league (non-keeper) was activated just recently as well.
If one of you know how to contact him, I'd be happy to run it for him this year if nobody else is able. I run two leagues already, but I'd be happy to take care of another if it would be some small help somehow. I'll definitely do weekly updates and inject a little crap talking as well, if everyone is on board with that...or we can just keep it a quiet league if you all want.
Just let me know, and again I'm sorry to hear about his situation, and I hope everything works out alright.
I'm here. The draft order is:
1. Fast And Furiosa
2. Party Crashers
3. Starving Dogs
4. Hong Kong Cavaliers
5. Orlando Calrissians
6. Milton Steelers
7. Ndamukong Got The Boot
8. The Endy Point
9. Chris Carter's Bad Advice
10. West Coast Ghosts
11. Jack Lambert's Teeth
12. Meaner Machine
Everyone vote on a date and time for the draft. Remember, 3 regular keepers and one rookie from last year keeper.

I don't think there is one. I just went to my bookmark from last year, and then it says towards the top right to click for 2016 league.
Let me know if you want a URL, and I'll send it to you if you want.
I had that last year when I inherited someone's team, and he just assigns you some nobody that you can drop after the draft and grab a different player. That way we all start with 4 players. I'm new to this whole keeper thing, but my advice is definitely grab one (or 2) this year...and maybe even reach for one, if that's in your nature to do.
Forgot this switched over to ESPN.
Also, all the best to you and yours StarvingDog.
Hong Kong Cavaliers:

Bleh. Feels like my team got exponentially worse since the season ended.
I have another draft at exactly that time, but since this one is Yahoo, and all my others are ESPN, I think I could make it work. I would prefer not to have both at same time though, so I thought I'd at least make this known in case some other people would rather move the time or date as well.
ETA: Are we going to fly with an odd number of teams (and byes some weeks), or are we pushing to grab one more team? I know this is a long time league, so I don't want to step on anyone's toes, but I think I could grab one more person, and tell them to keep the crap talk to a minimum. Or maybe we ask someone who is on this board if they want to give it a go.
Until I saw Milton's lineup a few posts later, I would have said let's just hand over the championship to Endy right now
So I assume you are Team Chris Carter's... in the keeper league. If that is so, then you just list your 3 players you want to keep right here, and he enters them into the system. And if you have a rookie from last year that you want to keep, you can list them also.
And no thanks on the Luck offer. I hear you guys don't do many trades, and while I worked hard last year as a newbie to change that philosophy, even I don't want that kind of bad [summons his inner Duke]...Luck!
Lol. I just have to hope no one gets hurt. Rodgers was so frustrating last year with all his WRs hurt.
Hopefully this year everyone is healthy and nobody invokes the...
I've been in several auction leagues. It's definitely a different kind of draft. Anybody can have the #1 ranked player provided they're willing to pay for it and possibly leave themelves bargain shopping for the rest of their roster. Do you spend big on two or three top tier players, or spread the wealth and draft an entire team of solid player? You also have to be aware of runs when they happen, which might mean tossing your strategy and value charts out the window if everybody starts grabbing running backs and you're looking at missing out. And never, EVER spend more than $1 for your kicker or defense.
At the top of your roster page, there is a link that says "keepers" - click that link and then click the checkmark box next to the players you want to keep. ESPN will do the rest
Sounds perfect. Do we really need to click on some keeper link, or are you entering them into the system for us like last year?
I can see if I can do it myself, but I know from experience in one of my 100% keeper leagues that ESPN wipes out everyone's lineups completely unless the players are marked as keepers when the draft starts.
So, yesterday I discovered that someone at my company put in an incident ticket request to the network team to open the firewall for a week for www.espn.com/fantasy for some "executives" so that they can "watch videos and access the site." And it was done--not only did they open the site, but they just blanket turned off the filter for "games and streaming." Too funny.
B! LEAGUE! B! LEAGUE!
I think I can make that date/time. I pre-ranked my players already just in case.
Wow! This weekend? Holy crap, yeah I think that's OK with me.
I have marked my keepers. Do we have a specific time on 9/4 yet? Or is it on the league in ESPN?
Yeah, it will be through ESPN. The draft is at 2pm ET on Sept. 4
