Actually, looking at everyone's roster, I think everyone has had a solid draft so far grabbing dependable players, and reaching when needed. I almost wish this would be a league just to see how it turns out. Well done so far gentlemen. ;-D

Freeze rosters on opening day.

No trades, no waiver wire, no transactions.

Just draft and sit until Oct. Best drafter wins.

It would suck for those people who get hit by the injury bug.

Shandler touched upon it a bit in last years' Forecaster. That the draft has little significant impact on team results due to waiver wire/FAAB/trade/keeper rules.

The true test of how well you draft is having a team and living with them for the entire season. A deeper bench would probably be advisable due to injury concerns, but it would be a great way to see how good you really are at drafting.
