TR Keepers 2013

Sat Aug 10, 2013 9:32 pm

Invites are out, check your Yahoo mail. Yahoo claims it'll do keepers, I'll believe it when I see it. Keeper declaration is 23 August, draft is 30 August @ 10PM EDT. Usual rules apply, i.e. 3 keepers and a pre-draft based on who's keeping who.

Better post them here just in case Yahoo doesn't work.

Still need Corrado. If he's not in by the 8/23 keeper deadline I plan to declare the team open and allow the recipient to pick keepers from the roster. I'm sort of hoping that the new keeper management system will obviate the need for a pre-draft and will allow me to place the pre-draft spots at the front of the regular draft.

If anyone feels differently on either subject, this is the place to let me know.

Just realized I will likely be out of internet coverage for the draft. Going camping that weekend.

Picking keepers was tough. That said:

CJ Spiller
Marshawn Lynch
Matt Ryan

Yep, that leaves RG III and Andrew Luck back in the draft pool.

I'm hoping that once all the keepers are in, I can set a custom draft order that incorporates pre-draft into the main draft. That said, Yahoo won't let me play with that until after the keeper deadline passes tonight.

Looks like Corrado is going to miss his deadline and FroBozz already has a ready replacement. If the team goes over to him I'll give him a day or two to pick keepers and then manually edit them in.

OK FroBozz, have your guy PM me. I can't do any of the league finalizing or checking on how pre-draft will work with an odd number of teams.

Hey Ned, can you see if we have our keepers entered? My computer crashed yesterday and I cannot tell who I selected (if I selected) on my phone. :-?

To all:

We're now at 10 teams, so once I get the draft order I can finalize things and make sure keepers are properly set. Just got home from another weekend out with too many kids around so I'll get to it later tonight. Should be ready to roll sometime this evening. The last thing I need to do this is keepers from Corrado's old team. PMs have been sent, just waiting for replies.

Draft order will be (remember, it's a snake draft):

Turbochargers
Stiffie
Fumblerooski
EvenWorseNewsLions
Evil Overlords
Denver Fax Machines, f/k/a Dragons
Space Beez
Bucket Heads
Beli-Check Yo-Self!
Captain's Keepers

Kelly (Turbochargers):

YG Yahoo PM.

I'm assuming that the teams without keepers (other than Turbochargers) are taking their chances in the draft?

Fumblerooski
Space Beez

Kelly's (old Turbochargers) keepers are registered. I'd lock keepers and go forward if one manager would confirm his intent to cast a very highly-rated player back into the general draft.

FroBozz, are you really putting AP up for grabs??

Recorded.

Absolute Last Call. When I get home around 6:00 PM EDT tonight, keepers will be closed once and for all.

Keepers are in, draft order is set. I hope this works, as there's no way to pull up what the draft will look like once it starts.

I cannot believe I somehow missed the draft. No biggy - after a couple moves, I quite like my team now.

I've slept through 3 of 4 this year. If I'm lucky I'll be awake tonight.

Yay!! I've been graded out with a C for my drafting, and am projected to finish 10th in the league :) Got to love the automated analysis...

****.

I went in earlier this week to switch out Rodgers, saw I had no decent QB and ran out of time that moment to scout others. Then I forgot, and the reminder on my phone had already gone off so no reminder. Dammit dammit dammit

Well, I was able to pick up Ryan Tannehill so at least I have a starting QB this week. Still, I'm a moron.
