Picking first didn't seem to help me.
last year tater and i drafted to win 5 cats every week and it worked. we had winning records but at 5-4 most of the time, it was like a snail crawling....and then a 3-6 loss really set you back
I dunno about that. Picking 10 & 11 successively sounds like a pretty good opportunity to get two perennial primo guys. Meanwhile, mikhail is crushing all pre-season speculation
Would you believe picking last and picking badly? And he autodrafted. So much for the best laid plans.
As I've said, it is luck. I put in time and effort into my Hockey League draft, and I'm dead last there. I ended up with autodraft (not by choice, by the way) in this basketball league, and I have gotten lucky with a couple of pick ups when my guys were injured and some people performing a lot better than most expected (Richard Jefferson, Bynum, G.Hill, and Baron Davis). But we still have lots of games to play and I wouldn't be surprised if my results start getting worse.
wooooo! Veto that trade!!! details for the peanut gallery: Abe - SausageKing gives up Jameer Nelson Rip Hamilton Elton Brand and gets Tracy Mcgrady Emeka Okafor Tony Parker i didn't vote on this one.
DAMN!! I am having a hard time keeping up my lineups.
I need to get through the next couple of weeks before Hill and Bibby get healthy. I already lost Kevin Martin and Peja because they were out for a long time.
That's a scary thought. Your team is kicking my butt while it is injured.
It's closer than I'd like it to be, but I have wait for my guys to get back. Can't lose any more players. Hey, autodraft did a good job of picking for me, what can I say? And a couple of players are producing way above their norm. Anyone expected Jefferson to average 25 this year? Or me getting lucky with Hill and Bynum?
Basketballers approached me about a trade and he listed players who were untouchable (Kobe Vince Hedo Bosh) and wanted Rip so I proposed this 1 and he turned it down. Then he offered it to me the next day and I accepted. If you were in my position where someone wants a player you have, you gotta try and make the move. Consequently I had proposed a deal with Aurora that I am glad she turned down because it was made under the assumption that the deal with Basketballers had gone through.. Ahhh the dirty underbelly of fantasy ball
LOL Sausage King! I rather liked your offer but I am emotionally attached to my losing team. It's quite pathetic really. Advice for fantasy owners in the future: Never EVER put together a team of pet players that you love to watch and really don't even care whether they are doing great or not. It really clouds the objectivity of a fantasy GM. Plus, I'm so confused about why they are doing so poorly. It seems like they play good when I see them on TV. LOL.
I thought for sure i was doomed to fall to roscoe's mighty hand but the pizza gods intervened and delivered a super supremo with double toppings at the last minute.
Another one of my players is down, I knew that being on the top in my first ever fantasy league was too good to be true. Concequently I lost my match with Laimbs, and the future doesn't look as bright anymore.
Think of the bright side. With guys injured, that allowed you to win the turnover category against me.
You earned it. Man I'm pissed about losing.
Now, there's that silver lining I couldn't find.
Well, Bynum is gone 2-3 months with knee injury. I think my luck is just about over. Bibby should come back in a few days, maybe he'll be the addition that keeps me going.
Research has proven that guys that are auto-drafted have a 17.4% higher likelihood of getting injured.
Really? Can I have a link, please?
