Challenging Mock Draft!!! (9 Teams Needed)

Postby FF Newbie » Mon Jun 07, 2004 10:31 am

Okay guys, I figured with all the dull, routine mock drafts we've all been doing the past few months, it was time for something a little new. Basically, this mock draft will challenge you by simulating a more complicated league with several additional starting positions and/or scoring features that most leagues don't have.

The main differences are:

1. This league starts a lot of players (see below)
2. Specifically, it starts 2 QBs
3. It is a keeper league (keep 4 veterans, 1 rookie)
4. there is a bonus of .5 points for receptions
5. return yards are awarded (1pt/25yards)
6. DT and PK scoring is spiced up just a bit

I think these changes are more realistic as they equalize the values of players at all positions as well as reward/penalize actual performance rather than simply statistics i.e. interceptions, fumbles, missed kicks, and giving up a lot of points are penalized and special teams are taken into account.

Ignore the AntSports league settings. They aren't customizable. The real league settings are as follows:

This league starts: 2QB 2RB 4WR 1RB/WR 1TE 1PK 1DT

4 veteran keepers
1 rookie keeper

Offensive scoring:

10 yards rushing/receiving 1pt
rushing/receiving TD........ 6pt
receptions....................... 5pt

25 yards passing.............. 1pt
passing TD...................... 4pt

fumble/int...................... -2pt

25 return yards................ 1pt
return TD........................ 6pt

Defense scoring:

Defensive TD.................. 6pt
Safety............................ 2pt
INT/Fumble recovery....... 2pt
Sack.............................. 1pt

Shutout................. 10pt
2-6 points............... 8pt
7-10....................... 6pt
11-14..................... 4pt
15-19..................... 2pt
20-23..................... 0pt
24-27.................... -2pt
28-34.................... -4pt
35-41.................... -6pt
42+....................... -8pt

PK Scoring:

Extra Point.................. 1pt
miss.......................... -3pt
FG < 30 yards............. 3pt
miss.......................... -2pt
FG < 40 yards............. 3pt
miss.......................... -1pt
FG 40-49 yards............ 4pt
miss......................... -.5pt
FG 50+ yards.............. 5pt

note: Special teams return TD are counted to the player only and are included with his offensive stats. Only TD scored when the defensive unit is on the field count for the Team Defense.

To join this mock, go here: http://www.antsports.com/private_drafts/ and scroll down to "Cafe 2QB Keeper Mock". The password is "cafe", duh. Feel free to choose a draft position as mocks like this are to help us prepare for the real thing and you may know where you'll be picking in your real draft. Let's get this thing going.

Please remember to sign up using your real Cafe name so the draft is easier to follow and use the predraft feature well in advance of your pick so we can keep things moving. If you miss a pick, it is especially important that you predraft your picks, otherwise the computer will make selections and it doesn't know we are starting 2QB and have 5 keepers, etc., etc. Basically, it will make really bad picks and we'll all be wasting our time.

There must be some interest out there in a mock that's different from the cookie-cutter type we've all been doing. Those are so easy you can sleep-walk through them. How about something to really challenge us and get us ready for the season, especially for those in serious leagues?
