Be careful beginners...

Postby Kelly4477 » Mon Aug 04, 2008 3:23 pm

I had quite a bit of controversy in my draft this past weekend. There are 2 Adrian Peterson's as well as a "Roydell" and a "Roy" Williams. The guy who picked AP as his #1 pick, put the wrong sticker up on his roster board and put AP (CHI). And it wasn't caught until many rounds later when someone wanted to put AP (MINN) under his roster when it was caught. Same thing with Roydell and Roy Williams.

LOOK AT YOUR STICKERS CAREFULLY!!!!

For the record, Roydell and Adrian (CHI) should not be drafted so there should not be any issues ;-D

Always remember, Tim Duncan is a BASKETBALL player.


For the longest time, Tim Duncan was a 3rd string kicker for like Arizona, and he was dead last in the active rankings. I always joked that it would be smart to draft him as a sleeper, and made him my mr. irrelevent when I had the last pick a few times :)

:-b Great call, but yes all be careful at the off line live drafts. Thankfully most of the websites have big pictures of the players, with their team name clearly stated.

It is pretty realistic that Adrian Petersen (CHI) will be drafted in deeper leagues. Seems like bad advice again :-t

And then there's Good Rex and Bad Rex.

I keep drafting one when I mean to take the other.

Did you forget this is a beginner forum? A beginner is most likely not going to be in a really deep dynasty league. That is the only format he would be taken. So, how is this bad advice again? He isn't even drafted in a couple of my deep dynasty leagues, there is no way he is drafted in a re-draft league. Where do you have him ranked? I have him at 63 meaning you would have to be in a 12 team league and all owners have 5 RBs a piece on their team. Not so sure how realistic that is for a beginner ;-D
