Flea will track them. We can do all pick trades on Flea. That's why we chose it to begin with. We shouldn't have to do any work, especially not the commish.


p.s. They didn't disappear the draft function was off because we do a slow draft here. You could see all picks in future picks. I turned the draft back on though and I don't have an issue what way we do this as long as everything is crystal clear.

I will cross reference the draft order here and on Flea and see if they match.



That makes more sense. I could not for the life of me figure out what happened lol.

I think that if everybody just did everything on Flea, which has the capability to track it all for us, your life would be way easier as commish. You'd never have to worry about fixing things manually because somebody did something here at the cafe.

We can use Flea to do the slow draft as well, so we don't need to post here, but rather just input your pick in the site as it comes up.


This has been frustrating to say the least but oh well. I kind of understand how bad it is in comparison. I am in the Flex Factor league, been around since 2006 with deeper rosters than this league. They have the trading block and completed trades in one thread, it is 8 pages long. Our completed trades alone is 15 pages in half the time. :-*

Won't happen for this year but Flea has also expanded the rosters. We no longer have to hold to 30 just FYI.

What I love about this league, and the drafts, is that guys go as they are expected to. Nobody falls unexpectedly for the most part, everyone knows their stuff to the maximum. I don't expect to see too many guys fall too far that definately shouldn't, fourth and inches drafts are always my favorite.

I kinda hate that lol. "I wanted him!" is a constant exclamation I make at my computer. (Well usually, not this year with no picks)

I absolutely love the trading. We all end up with the guys we want because we all want different guys and aren't afraid to go after them.

Def a league with a lot of horse traders in it. When I took over this team this season, I expected to take a couple years to turn this team around, but have made numerous deals that will make me at least competitive right from the get-go.

I can honestly say I've made more trades in this league the past month than I did in all my dozen-odd teams combined last year for the entire season!!!

;-D ;-D

I know. ;-D Right off the bat I was being offered trades. Made 4 trades so far that I feel have improved my team in depth, longevity, and chance to win.

Still looking to sacrafice a bit of depth for an elite QB. I love the league so far. ;-D

We are still on schedule, please do not jump over anyone in the first round for picks. We will be reasonably relaxed with the 24 hour clock during the first round.

Since we're comparing- I made at least one trade in each league last season and made a total of about 10-15 in 5 leagues.

Now that I think about it, I think I'll name my team The Horse Traders.

I think it was pretty clear who the top 4 and top 7 were. Now is where things get interesting.

I thought that too. But I was able to get Tate at 1.05 in one league, Hardesty at 1.08 in another, Demaryius Thomas slid late in a few also, I just don't expect things like that to happen here.


Anyway, I'm really glad to have Mike Williams in at least one of my dynasties, he's my #2 WR this year and I didn't want to risk him lasting until late in the 1st. I have him rated alot higher then Benn, and slightly higher then Thomas. I think he'll be a stud #1 WR eventually and Freeman has the huge arm to get him the ball. Reports are already really good regarding him, and Benn is more of a project then he is.


If not for the concerns about quitting the team and character, he would of been a 1st round pick in the real draft and a few spots higher in rookie drafts.
