I deleted my post; sorry about that. I swear your bid wasn't showing when I made mine.

No worries man, it just seems to make more sense going forward regardless.

So, I feel like I have gotten my whole team at a bargain so far. Can't decide if that means I am going to have extra money at the end or if I am about to overpay for some guys.........

Actually, I'd be up for that if everyone else would be.

Any takers?

i know some people are here to help out the mock and i don't think we will have full league for it, however, i personally do not mind turn it into a league, if all 10-teams agree on that

I could probably be up for a league, as well.

Not sure if this is a good idea or not, but I think Kickers and defenses could be on a 12 hour clock at least. A couple reasons for this:

>> Very few DST will actually see someone bidding up past the opening bid
>> Many FFers will stream these positions, picking up the best available each week

When someone puts in a bid for a kicker/DST, they usually intend to post it and walk away with that player on their roster. Besides the top 3 or so, you won't be seeing many bidding wars at these positions and it takes up space. It just doesn't make sense to me to have a 24 hour clock if no one will bid on it. So I'd suggest either A) a 12 hour clock on K/DST, or B) allow a second nomination slot for a person nominating a kicker or team defense. I nominated a defense so I could fill a roster spot, but I hate seeing it sit there when we could be bidding on someone else.

Agreed. I think anybody should be able to nominate a D or K any time (on top of their usual pick) AND they should be on a 12 hour clock... It is a little complicated but we're all clever fellas, right?
