re: The ATL Thread Fantasy Football League: DRAFT TONIGHT


That was definitely the biggest trade rape. I really had high expectations for Mario last year. He really let me down. However, I still finished third last year. Aaron Hernandez and Pettigrew were pretty damn good at TE too.

I think we all decided last year that it didn't matter where we drafted the keepers. They would just take up your first 3 picks.

So I don't have to keep all three of those half-ass WRs I have?

I may go this route.

You HAVE to keep three players from your roster.

Some leagues, when you keep a player, make you lose the draft pick that you picked that player in the previous year.

This league does not have that penalty.

Yup. You frickers kept me just to torture me. I knew it.

Just for that, I'm going to win more 64-63 type games this year just to piss all of you off.

Gee, thanks. At this point with my rosters, that's like saying "in order to get back in, some leagues require anal rape with a cactus. Not us. We are just going to use a broomstick".

It's all good though. If I manage to win a game after having to keep 3 decent WRs, I'll hope to get consideration for the "Owner of the Year" award.

The keeper rules seem odd.

Keep 3, no penalty? Why is it termed, "giving up your first 3 picks." That would seem to imply that others get to keep those picks?

I guess I'm failing to see the purposes of the keepers as a reward other than you just get to keep 3 guys you had last year.

Also, can I still trade guys from last year for picks this year?

If so, I'll field some offers...

They count as the last 3 picks. They count as Mainly because that is how it is done with yahoo


You can trade keepers for keeper or picks as if now you still own your entire roster from last year

It's a reward for some and a penalty for others.

If you have 3 great keepers or even more than that and can turn it into extra draft picks or better keepers, then wonderful.

If you are having a tough time finding 3 guys you want to keep then you better start being creative and finding ways to make your team better.

I'd move any of these guys:

Antonio Brown
Marshawn Lynch
Chris Johnson (doubt anyone wants his candy ass)
Mark Ingram
DeSean Jackson
Neil Rackers

We can discuss trades but until teams and keepers are finalized, I don't think it will let you propose trades yet.

Right now it is Cleveland Rocks, but I will change it later. My team name will always reflect what member of the roster I despise the most.

I have no doubt that you will be. The fact that I am keeping 3WRs should tell you all you need to know.

I like Nicks.

I'd part with those backs for the pick around their ADP. May not be appealing to you, but I dunno.

What round did you pick them?

ETA: I really don't want to part with a 1, 2, or 3, unless it is something good...

My team needs a lot of work.

I might be interested. My team is Fredi the Tactician.

Edit:
I don't want to think about our bumbling manager all offseason while I'm watching football. Think I'll roll with 8ball & MJD. Obviously my team motto is going to be Space Age Pimpin ...wait or maybe Just Like Candy

What are you looking for here picks wise?

2nd or 3rd for Lynch and 7th or 8th for Ingram I assume. What about CJ?

ETA: 31, is the draft snake or reverse standings in every round?
