Sorry to be a downer, but I'm not interested in making this a real league. If you guys want to run it with no bench I don't have a problem with it, but I'd basically never look at it.

Ditto. I generally passed on players I really want this year so I could see how far they slip. Might be interesting to run it as a no moves league but I wouldn't say it's a true test of our drafting skill.

Concur.... Moreover, I'd be more interested to hear who everyone's Top 5 targets were that they were hoping to draft in this mock, that did not end up on their team for one reason or another relative to where they were drafted. Think that could be an Interesting exercise..

No moves league sounds good. But I'm replacing Carpenter when the draft ends. :-D

It's not about who wins or loses, it's about seeing at the end of the year where you were right/wrong

We aren't drafting to be right or wrong though, that's the problem. Drafting a mock and drafting a real league are entirely different because people take wild risks and intentionally don't draft players they are targeting in mocks because it somewhat defeats the purpose of seeing where they end up being chosen. Again, not trying to be a downer but I just don't see the value in setting up the league. We could all just do what Burro said and mention our 5 targets and/or choose a few picks we thought were very good/very bad and see at the end of the year how it turned out.

Other mocks will tell me where my guys will go. I took this one seriously.

Due to my dedication and devotion to you guys, Im going to see this thru, so I will log on and check 1x day until finished--- but if we could speed this up, that would be wonderful.

Thx for making it happen.


At this point in the draft it's pretty easy to fill out a roster. Send me a list of your top few guys for whatever spots you have open and we'll pick for you.

I'll keep drafting and hopefully, we make another 2 rounds of headway today!
