I can't figure out how to give you an extra pick, the custom draft option only lets me move picks around

I've never been in a keeper league before Say someones keeper gets injured before we draft, can they change their keeper?

I think on NFL.com, you can change your keepers until the date of the draft.



The only way we can pull this off is to do a webzone (offline) draft.

Otherwise, the draft picks that were traded in the past won't be able to be transferred.



I'm down for a webzone draft that we start sometime in August, we'll be done by Week 1.

New teams would choose their keepers from leftover players? I'll put expanding the league up to a vote if no one drops out.

I think the fair way to do it would be to just draft normally, and the expansion teams would pick up three extra players at the end of the draft. I don't think any new teams should skim off of the top of the remaining talent pool, we should get the bottom, IMO. Maybe give any expansion teams the top 2 picks or something, I dunno. But not 3 of the top remaining players each.

But like I said, if you guys don't wanna add teams that's cool too.

can't you just trade the 1st round picks from the old team to the new team for their last round pick? That's essentially how it would go down anyway basically.

If we do it the way you say, the new teams start off waaaay behind the 8 ball. We already get 3 keepers. Meaning we get 3 guys that we consider "studs" or "stud-ish" To where you're extra 3 players would come form the very end of the draft.

I say the the new teams have their own little 3 round draft before the rest of the league starts their draft. That way the new teams too can have "stud-ish" players and aren't completely behind the 8 ball.

that's just my $.02

I hear ya. I'll roll with whatever you guys think is fair if you choose to expand.

That sounds good. I prefer to do a live draft.


So I'm putting this up to a vote

Expand the league to 12 teams or keep it at 10?

1. Draft order should reflect last years standings, yay or nay?

2. Expand the league to 12 teams or keep it at 10?

Seen the email sent out. To which I had already rejoined. Seen the poll. To which I voted for an expansion. Could careless eaither way on that. But my vote is in.

As for the draft order. It should reflect last year's standing with the possible noob teams getting 11th and 12th.

Yup, expand to 12, and trade the last picks for the 1st rounders, and we're set

Nice... I have some tough choices here. Dez Bryant might be pretty badass this year..
Too late to join ?

someone proposed the new teams will have a three round draft after everyone has chosen their keepers
