Draft order will be decided at the draft! URGH!

Postby sklingem » Tue Sep 04, 2007 12:54 pm

Going to my draft tonight and the draft order will be selected tonight. This will be my first draft where I do not know my draft position prior to the draft. I think I would rather have my draft position to mock through the posibilities. I do not have time to mock for every position. I think there is a big difference in potential strategy based upon your draft position.

I drafted last week @ 8 in a 12 league team. I wish I could do that one again. I really do not like the 7 through 10 picks this year. Hopefully, I will have the 1/2 pick.

Yeah, Ia always join leagues where we know the order ahead of time. I draft tonight at #2 so I can map out a strategy before hand.

I guess I'm in the minority....I don't really care if I know before hand or not. Doesn't change anything one way or the other in anything I will do. I don't "plan out a strategy". I just go in and take the best value I can. You gotta go in with an open mind and be ready to change up how you draft depending on the circumstances.

I like finding out at draft time. I like to try to prepare for different scenarios, and I don't think it's a bad thing at all, to get a little surprise.

I like finding out at draft time. It makes you really be prepared because you need to know who you'd take 3rd, just like you need to know who you'd take 9th.

Map out a strategy? You're not actually playing football...you don't need a playbook and gameplan...it's fantasy football. Must be really tough crafting out a strategy of drafting Steven Jackson - "Should i announce him as Sir Steven Jackson or Action Jackson? I can't decide...OMG...only 2 days 'til the draft!"
