TR Keepers 2017

Tue Aug 01, 2017 9:23 pm

Thanks to Yahoo taking my decision to not auto-renew as license to delete the league, I dug back in my profile and got the closing rosters for last year. They're available here:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/pd2dy1j8hjd4p ... 6.pdf?dl=0

I'll try to get the league set up in the next week, but I'm headed to the Adirondacks this weekend so no promises.

I will also need e-mail addresses (PM please) so that I can send league invites.

Draft Order:

Siemian Lynch
Captain's Keepers
The Enabled List
EvenWorseNewsLions (STIFFIE, if you could make contact)
Bucket Heads
STIFFIE
Fumblerooski
Golden Taints
Gronkadile Dundee
Ospreys

EDIT: Invites sent to last year's e-mail addresses except for EvenWorseNewsLions and The Enabled List (they show as hidden in the 2016 managers list).

OK, haven't heard from Ospreys (?), Golden Taints (FroBozz), and EvenWorseNewsLions (PRIME1). Time's a wastin' and we need to get the full complement in place by next Friday if we're going to have a proper pre-draft.

If they don't respond, do we open up the spots?

That's what we've done in the past. I'm astounded that FroBozz hasn't picked up on this yet.

If we have to find new owners, it'll be first-come first-served for pick of rosters from which to harvest keepers.

Reminders sent to FroBozz and Ospreys (defending league champion).

I'm in, sorry for the delay.

I'll keep:

RB Le'Veon Bell
WR Antonio Brown

And then I'll take one pre draft selection. :D

OK, we're down to two non-responding teams.

Teams not claimed (established by Yahoo login) by 5PM EDT 8/18/2017 will be offered to the gerbil nation. My goal is to have a full owner roster by Monday 8/21/2017 so that there's a week for pre-draft before we go live given that Yahoo is going to make me assign all keepers to all teams manually. If I don't have pre-draft or keeper by 9/1/17, they're in the pool. Live draft for non-keepers is 9:00PM EDT on Wednesday September 6.

OK, the only one who can contact PRIME1 hasn't logged in since 7/31/17. PRIME1's team (EvenWorseNewsLions) is now available to the first person to PM me. There's a Dropbox link in the first post for you to decide if you want in and, if so, who you want to keep.

I'll set further dates based upon when I get a bid for the open team.

Invite still pending. Once accepterd, it will be keeper declaration time.

Didn't have a pre-draft last year as doing it in the on-line system worked, so I'll do it this way again this year. Now if we can just get through preseason without more players dropping like flies.

I'll make note of those for now, but let's hold off until Friday (everyone's last preseason game is Thursday) to tote up the Week 4 carnage.

Barring Week 4 injuries (already lost 2 for the season):

QB Matt Ryan
RB Frank Gore
WR Michael Thomas

At least I'll have 'Net access for this weekend's Labor Day gathering, so I'll have time to moosh it all together.

I'm sorry, life has a way of getting to you. I missed this entirely. Can I still pick keepers?

I'll see if PRIME wants to co-own with me

You're good, deadline isn't until this weekend. No need for pre-draft any more in the Yahoo eco-system.

And now I see that the reason I didn't remember who else I had, was because I had nothing else worth remembering.

Keeping Rodgers, and just Rodgers.

Re: TR Keepers 2017

Here's the keeper list as of this moment. Draft is Wednesday 9/6 at 9:00 PM EDT:

Golden Taints / FroBozz's Team:

RB - Le'Veon Bell
WR - Antonio Brown

EvenWorseNewsLions / Victorious Secret:

TE - Jimmy Graham
WR - Dez Bryant

Gronkadile Dundee / Kelly's Team:

WR - Julio Jones
WR - Mike Evans
RB - Jordan Howard

Captain's Keepers:

QB - Matt Ryan
RB - Frank Gore
WR - Michael Thomas

Bucket Heads / Dr. Science's Team:

QB - Tom Brady
QB - Drew Brees
RB - DeMarco Murray

STIFFIE / Ian's team:

QB - Aaron Rodgers

Siemian Lynch / Von Miller Lite:

Wants no one

Fumblerooski / Matt's Notable Team:

No one

Ospreys / JB's Bigly Team:

QB - Russell Wilson
WR - Odell Beckham, Jr.

The Enabled List / gary's Team

No one

I MUST HAVE KEEPERS BY NOON EDT WEDNESDAY 9/6 OR THEY GO BACK IN THE POOL. I need to hand-insert and hand-manage the draft order and that is not a small task, especially when I'm supposed to be working for the job that writes me paychecks.

That is all.
