What do you bring with you to the live draft....

Postby Paladyr » Thu Jun 23, 2005 2:24 pm

Here's my methodology:

1. Get a list of average draft positions. This is the base from which all decisions are made.
2. Highlight any keepers.
3. Add lines indicating what players should fall in what round (nothing more than counting 10 players and drawing a line)
4. Mark certain players as players to avoid (unless they fall too far of course)
5. Mark certain players as players I really want and can expect to get.
6. Create an "optimum" and reasonable list of all the players I want to grab. This helps me map out if I want to do RB, RB, WR, etc...

Just curious. And if anyone has a good site with an average draft position list feel free to post it.

I like simple pleasures, like butter in my ass, lollipops in my mouth. That's just me.

That's a sweet list, but I do have to add
(c) list of all players and positions
and
(d) a highlighter to avoid those silly fines for trying to draft an already drafted player after having too many of those beers!

...and beef jerky.......and paper and a pencil to track everyone's picks so you know which owners still need what positions filled when you're deciding which player to take.

I bring:
List of VBD rankings - created in excel
On an 11x17 sheet of paper(kind of like the Denny's menu many of the coaches use) I have bye weeks, depth chart, team by team schedule, place for counting number of positions taken by other owners, place for listing my player selections.
