    I actually feel sorry for the guy. You can't draft a kicker in the 2nd for precisely this reason. I'm not touching him with a barge pole in Fantasy and I think Tampa's O will be decent enough that I'd have considered it if he was being solid.

    I'm trying to work out which teams are definitely active for the season so far and this is what I have:

    Wattsy – Shad Khan
    Shunter – Red Wright 88
    Jammy - Tebow
    SmashConcept – Clinton-Dix Trump
    Motorbiker – Dez
    DT – Hernandez Pistol
    Joe – Laces Out
    MonkeyPete - Supreme Leader

    The three additional players from last year all have dormant accounts so are unlikely to be back, they will have received league reactivation emails so we have 2 spots going spare.
    8 man league is alright. Not ideal but we all end up with stacked teams.

    Do we have an agreed time for the draft yet?

    Your 4th Sept Sunday 18:00 hasn't been objected to so unless someone says otherwise it'll be then. I have my board, I also agree about the size, 8's mean stacked teams and big scores but they're viable.

    We'd need 1 more to make it a 10 man but otherwise you're not too late. Obviously it won't work with 9 teams.

    MB nothing is set, I can RNG some draft positions or they can just get decided as the draft begins so you can be assured of fairness. Anyone have a preference?* I'll also shuffle the conferences splitting the rookies and giving everyone some new rivals.

    How does this work? If you're short, I don't mind joining.

    But I don't know a lot of the players.

    I have a preference for knowing asap so I can plan my first round pick.

    Basically take it in turns to pick up players then you pick a team each week to start and try and get points.

    There's a beginner guide. NFL.com has its own draft board and there are plenty more floating around the internet if you need a bit of assistance.

    You don't have to really know anything, just join and pick it up as you go. You only have to put in like 15 minutes a week max but most of us put in way more than that because it's addictive.

    I come bearing draft order related gifts! I've done it with A Mysterious Lord and Kenan and Kel playing; if they end up not playing we'll just remove them from the order. You can tell I didn't rig it because who puts themselves 10th but I've got pretty little print screens to prove it

    I'll update the order on NFL.com when we have confirmed teams.

    To confirm the order is:
    Pick # 1 : Supreme Leader Kim-Jon Goodell
    Pick # 2 : Tebow's 3rd Down Conversion
    Pick # 3 : Dez caught it
    Pick # 4 : Hernandez Pistol Offense
    Pick # 5 : Laces out
    Pick # 6 : Red Wright 88
    Pick # 7 : A Mysterious Lord
    Pick # 8 : Clinton-Dix Trump
    Pick # 9 : Kenan and Kel
    Pick # 10 : Shad Khan has a Swimming Pool

    Since I no longer need them Here are my top 8 guys:

    1. Antonio Brown, WR PIT
    2. Odell Beckham Jr., WR NYG
    3. Julio Jones, WR ATL
    4. Todd Gurley, RB LA
    5. David Johnson, RB ARI
    6. Adrian Peterson, RB MIN
    7. A.J. Green, WR CIN
    8. DeAndre Hopkins, WR HOU

    Although this was pre-Bridgewater injury so AP might be sliding a little since he's going to see 8 men in the box more than any other RB this season.

    Same people but different order to me.

    Will be interesting to see who gets taken second. I think AB is a dead set top pick. I'm still a little bit annoyed that i got him last year and still didn't win.

    Snake draft. That's 'normal' in fantasy NFL. It equalises the draft order a little bit seems it's randomly decided each season in most leagues. Unfortunately for you**you won't get the 1st pick of every round. Your team would be unreal if you did.
