So last year I took over this team in a very unique dynasty league. 10 teams, but each team is named after a real life NFL team. (I happened to be the Steelers). In this league, anybody that your NFL franchise owns, you have exclusive rights to that player, and nobody else can touch him as long as he belongs to your organization. You can't draft a rookie from that team, or pick up a free agent, unless you trade for him. At that point you are trading for the rights to put him on your team.
Example: Somebody is the Colts, so nobody in the league can draft Andrew Luck, and the Colts don't have to waste a draft pick in our annual rookie draft on him. As long as Luck is under contract with Indianapolis, only the Colts can have Luck on the roster, unless I were to trade for Luck's rights. It can get confusing. Another catch is that anyone you draft in the annual rookie draft, you have their rights for 3 years I believe. I drafted Jake Locker last year, so I can have him sit in free agency and nobody else can touch him except for me. On the league page we have a running "Commissioner's Note" (this is a Yahoo league) of who has been drafted or right's being traded by each team.
The league is also IDP. All TDs 6 pts, 1 PPR. Start:
1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE, 1 WR/TE, 1 WR/RB, 1 K
5 D (any defensive player), 2 DB, 2 DL
The teams in the league: Steelers (Me), Bengals, Cowboys, Saints, Colts, Bills, Patriots, Vikings, Cardinals, Chargers.
In my first year, I got 2nd place after overhauling the majority of my roster. Now, here is the roster (took long enough)
QB- M. Stafford (Big Ben is in the FA, and I drafted Jake Locker last year)
RB- M. Lynch, S. Jackson, W. McGahee, R. Mendenhall (Drafted Kendall Hunter last year)
WR- M. Wallace, A. Brown, AJ Green, P. Garcon, N. Washington, S. Holmes, D. Thomas (DEN) (no notable rookies
TE- B. Pettigrew (have his draft rights)
K- D. Akers
LB- Rolando McClain, B. Orakpo (Lost Farrior to retirement, and Nate Irving and Casey Matthews I drafted)
DB- T. Polomalu, C. Prepah, R. Barber, D. Hall, E. Smith, Jason McCourtney
DL- N. Suh, C. Avril, J. Abraham
I know my D isn't all that, too many DBs and not enough LBs, but McCourtney was my highest scorer last year on D. Last year was the first time I ever played a Dynasty or did IDPs, and I took over a week before the draft. Had no clue what I was doing.
So what do y'all recommend I should do in the upcoming draft, as well as any advice going into the next season. I'll have the 9th pick, and with all the teams that have players I can't touch, it limits what I can do in terms of drafting. I was able to get AJ Green and Stafford in a trade dirt cheap last year, using the injuries to buy low on Stafford, and the rookie QB for Green. Any and all advice is much appreciated.
