Disappearing Draft Pick

Postby Wood Chipper » Tue Dec 25, 2012 9:33 pm

I owned the 4.06 2013 pick and now it has vanished magically. What happened?

It's something to do with the way Flea Flicker handles keepers. It will only list the picks you have room for on your roster after keepers. Unset them (it's unnecessary anyway as we don't use the in-built feature) and the pick will reappear.

Ah cool :) Thanks for the help. So we get to keep all the players we want and are not limited to only holding 28?

2012 Season in retrospect and upcoming 2013 Season

Postby Wood Chipper » Thu Dec 27, 2012 12:12 am

This was a fun year and a good competitive year for the league. It was my first as a dynasty owner though I had done years of redraft leagues.
I am already stoked about the next crop of players and next season! I am sure these things will be brought up but here is something I think would make the league better :)
Expanding the rosters 2 or 3 spots. I know this may seem like a lot but for any expert owner you love to sit that sleeper on your bench until it is his time to shine and this will provide more space for the sleepers. I personally can't find 5 players I want to cut for the upcoming draft and it would be a shame to trade the picks away.

Yes you should be able to keep everybody you want but you will have to make room for who you draft to stay at the league limit. I believe you can also draft anyone another team drops instead of a rookie if you choose

I just saw this thread. Congrats on winning, Thrifty! The only championship games I lost in 2012 were to Thrifty.

Thanks!! This league is hella competitive and of course it's an honor to have won.

Probably the craziest final I've ever been in, and Kar had every right to win with how stacked his team is.

No offense but I think expanding the already ridiculously large roster size in this league is ludicrous. This league already has 34 spots, which is 10-12 more than any of the three other dynasty leagues I participate in. I often can't believe some of the garbage players I have rostered, and how outrageously thin the waiver wire is because the 4th string RB and 6th string WR from every single NFL team are already on someone else's roster. Deciding which sleepers to keep and making cuts are essential part of dynasty leagues just as they are in the NFL. We have to draw a line somewhere, and I feel like if we expand any further then we might as well remove limits altogether and let people roster 100 players if they want to. It's that much of a joke.

If it comes to a vote, put me firmly in the camp as voting NO to any proposed roster expansion. :-t

I'm fine with keeping it the same. I don't think good players are getting dropped due to the limit.
