Still waiting on these teams for keeper choices
Jack Lambert's Teeth (Brian Murphy)
West Coast Ghosts (Ace Jivali)
Fast and Furiosa (Faisal Ahmed)
Just now noticed we have an odd number of teams in the B-League. Anyone want to join and be team number 12 so we can actually draft? @Jonathan Moxon you mentioned you might have someone? Here's the join link: https://yho.com/nfl?l=267657&k=0e4f421eb9ba3b3a&soc_trk=lnk&ikey=bdf5c6ed37e165a9
First draft! 10 team league, 1/2 folks that know what they're doing 1/2 that don't. 4 teams on auto-draft.
QB: Winston, Stafford
RB: Ingram, Hyde, Matt Jones, Yeldon, Kenneth Dixon
WR: Julio Jones, B. Marshall, M. Floyd, W. Snead, A. Boldin
Pretty happy with team. But we shall see.
I focused on WRs, and ha ha, my very last pick was Boldin. So yeah, he's there but probably won't stay there. I feel pretty good about Winston--I picked him up mid-season last year and he started a decent number of games for me. And with a 10-team league, there are still plenty of backups to go around. QB and TE were the last positions I picked. Gates was there and we were actually watching the Steelers game--but someone in our league is a huge Steelers fan and literally the first season we played drafted all Steelers. So he got James already.
Present and accounted for. I kind of hate my keepers which I think is the spot I was in last year. But here we go:
Kevin White (rookie)
Dion Lewis not coming back screwed me up completely.
OK. Just waiting on email addresses for West Coast Ghosts, Hong Kong Cavaliers, and Miltion Steelers.
The now open team has the first overall pick in the draft and the following to choose from for keepers:
Tom Brady, NE QB
Ameer Abdullah, Det RB
Charcandrick West, KC RB
Sammy Watkins, Buf WR
Michael Crabtree, Oak WR
Coby Fleener, NO TE
Calvin Johnson, Det WR
Bengals D/ST D/ST
Caleb Sturgis, Phi K
Martavis Bryant, Pit WR
Donte Moncrief, Ind WR
Jameis Winston, TB QB
Tavon Austin, StL WR
Buccaneers D/ST D/ST
Pierre Thomas, Wsh RB
Darren Sproles, Phi RB
Jimmy Graham, Sea TE
Jamaal Charles, KC RB
WOW... I just wasted a ton of time. It let me reset the draft in the original league and reset a date. So, I deleted the new league, the original league is now reset to Wednesday night and I will make sure there are no errors this time around.
We need a new owner for the above listed team.

Thanks for putting this all together SD!
Had my league draft on Friday. 12 team league, $50 buy-in. Limited benches and standard scoring:
QB - Aaron Rodgers
RB - Derrick Henry (I know... Heisman curse, and he's a 'Bama back. What could go wrong?!)
RB - CJ Anderson
WR - Donte Moncrief (He fell to me; he and Decker always drop, despite being quietly good and consistent.)
WR - Vincent Jackson
TE - Julius Thomas
FLEX - Gio Bernard
D - Cardinals
K - Graham Gano
QB - Andy Dalton
RB - Christine Michael
WR - Kelvin Benjamin
TE - Jason Witten
Overall I'm happy, but week one is a tough match-up. I'm feeling confident about everything but V-Jax, who's still questionable but if he plays I think Winston will favor him (ATL's passing defense is decent and Jameis will need the help), and my TE situation. Julius has a high ceiling, but Witten loves to run all over the Giants and he'll be a trusty target for Prescott, who's going to be trying to find his bearings. I may start Witten.
I'd start K-Ben, but I never start players or defenses playing against each other that week.
Had another one last night, 10 team league.
QB -- Big Ben, Andy Dalton
RB -- Murray/Henry/Rawls/Ingram/Forsett
WR -- ODB/B. Marshall/K. Benjamin/Watkins/V. Jackson
TE -- Delanie Walker
K -- Justin Tucker
D -- Bengals
