aaawall for got to PM killians...please remember to PM the next person! I'm glad I figured it out and waited. In the PM I sent to dream & then bungle (plan B), I asked them to give killians until like Noon today. This league is so different. I think it's really hard to pick for someone. We know dream or bungle would've make a good pick, but it's much harder to try and think what direction enter owners name here was thinking about going....if that makes sense. :-? ;-D

I feel the same way. The whole 2 QB and 2 TE thing just throws EVERYTHING out of whack.

But I do like it. ;-D

I'm glad you guys are enjoying the settings. ;-D I REALLY like this format. "Change of pace" is a good way to put it because you really can't draft how you normally would. I think all 4 drafts have been slightly different. Here's each draft through 77 picks:

2006
QB: 13
RB: 28
WR: 29
TE: 7

2007
QB: 16
RB: 25
WR: 30
TE: 6

2008
QB: 16
RB: 26
WR: 28
TE: 7

2009
QB: 19
RB: 25
WR: 24
TE: 9


Through 77 picks, the drafts look kinda similar. Even more emphasize on QB's & TE's this year. Check out the 4 drafts through 4 rounds:


Each draft through 4 rounds:

2006
QB: 3
RB: 19
WR: 17
TE: 1

2007
QB: 6
RB: 22
WR: 11
TE: 1

2008
QB: 8
RB: 16
WR: 15
TE: 1

2009
QB: 6
RB: 17
WR: 14
TE: 3


4 different starts IMO. Year 1 was the only year that QB's didn't go crazy early. I think The_Dude drafted the best team that didn't win a championship in this league. In 2007, the year Brady & Moss set records, The_Dude started his draft (from the 5 slot): Peyton/McGahee/Brady/Roy Williams/R.Moss. He had both guys in their record breaking year. 8-o He dominated the regular season but his lack of RB depth finally got the best of him when Brady & Moss slowed down a little towards the end of the year.

I don't usually talk strategy in the middle of a draft, but this isn't a $$$ league & it's late enough I think. I've always drafted my 3rd RB early. I won the championship in year 1, and it was mainly due to me being the 2nd owner to draft 3 RB's. I drafted DD in the 2nd round & he didn't even play a game that year. I drafted FWP in the 5th & he really saved my team. This is the 1st year that I took a QB before the 6th round. I'm the only owner that hasn't taken 2 QB's yet. Starting 2 QB's & 2 TE's is definitely a twist (like you guys mentioned), but starting 4WR's should be added to the twist IMO. I've always drafted RB & WR heavy early in this league so I'm liking the way this draft is going (QB & TE heavy). :-) ;-D
