But I got screwed on the draft, so I don't feel bad. If I run the table on this season, you can bet that they won't do KR next year.

Or everybody will get clue and draft accordingly. :-b


If you read, he already did the draft and the computer got a lot of guys for him.


No, I was referring to NEXT season how he said that they wouldn't do KR next season.

If it's totally unbalanced this year, I imagine KR won't be part of the picture next year. It just seems like a bad idea. I mean, talk about postional scarcity!

Toward the end of the draft, after I had most of the top guys, I mentioned it, and a couple people freaked. One picked up Maurice Hicks, not realizing that it really makes more sense for WR spots than RB spots, which already score well... but there's just not a lot left there, until some unknown entity emerges this season.

15 yards per points is just silly. We have 25 yards per points and it seems a little overpowered.

I now have the insatiable urge to go start a free league on Fox or something and make it the most whacky settings I can think of. 10 KR yards/point, bonus of 10 points at 100, 5 yards/point passing, 35 yards/point rushing, etc. :-D

Yeah, I know. I'm partially guilty, because I didn't look at the scoring until a couple of hours before the draft, myself. Otherwise I'd have probably suggested reconsidering the scoring.

I'm in a league of veterans and we give points for KR/PR yards as well. Funny thing is, nobody caught on to this in my league, either. I think it just goes to show that lots of people pay very little attention to the rules and only go off of their canned cheat sheets, often from magazines printed months before their drafts.

I have this roster (bear in mind, it's a Keeper):

Derek Anderson
LaDainian Tomlinson
Joseph Addai
TJ Houshmandzadeh
Santonio Holmes
Nate Burleson **
Kevin Boss
Shayne Graham
San Diego Chargers

Jason Campbell
Felix Jones
Chris Perry
LenDale White
Jerricho Cotchery
Josh Cribbs **
Devin Hester **

** = KR/PR

I think I have a decent shot at the playoffs with this team.
