Re: When to start the draft

Postby Cowboys 4 life » Fri Apr 26, 2013 8:37 pm

May is when i start to studying the players on their new teams. June is when I assess how good they will be on that team. July is when I have a good idea of who will succeed and who wont.

So I like starting later because you know more about the player and in a Dynasty you have to keep that player for a long time. I think Dynastys that draft real early tend to have more turn over. Thats just what I noticed. I left Horse Traders because I got a PM saying I was otc with no knowledge of the draft even starting.

Propose: Adjust 3rd WR slot to WR/TE.

This would give a bit more flexibility when setting lineups.

I like this and maybe would have preferred to see it from the onset of the league.

However, now I feel like with the expansion of the rosters, if we did this too we would simply be promoting parity. More options for weaker starting teams with deeper benches.

Plus - we didn't draft this way. I think our rosters would be significantly different if we had.

Finally - I didn't look but I'm wondering if Dolfan has Gronk and Hernandez. :-D

I think any lineup changes should be applied in 1 year. I've done this in other leagues and it seems fair for letting teams adapt their roster to the change. It's more key if a slot is added, but I still would err on giving teams time to adapt.

I'd probably vote against the change. Doesn't make the league any more interesting to me.

Exactly, any lineup changes in a dynasty league should have a year delay in implementing so that owners can make any necessary changes to their roster.

Agree with Joe that this should have maybe been given more thought before the initial draft... But it is what it is. Only one year removed from the initial draft, I am opposed to the idea... Even though I own Graham and Olson.

If someone wants to second the idea, we will put it to a vote. But keep in mind that our rules dictate 2/3 majority to change a rule.

I can assure you that we will post when the draft is starting, both here at the Cafe and via e-mail from the flea site.

That being said, we currently have 6 votes for May and 1 for April, with two for June. May appears to be the winner. I think you're going to have to speed up your eval a little bit. The good news is that there are a bunch of places to get information on rookie rankings, so you can at least get a jump start on your analysis.
