    Hi guys - are there still spaces for fantasy? I played in (and won!) the TSR league 3 years back and would be keen. I clicked on the link and there seemed to only be 4 teams signed up, but don't want to jump in if other people here have a team but just haven't signed up yet?

    Got to say there was some fairly unorthodox draft strategies going on for me to come out with my team, someone picked the Seahawks D in the 6th, Marshawn Lynch went before Eddie Lacy, Gotskowski went in the 9th, and Matt Ryan who has a ADP of 59 fell to me in the 10th.
    I'd take Lynch over Lacy 100 times out of 100. I know he's "28 and has run hard over the last few years", but people have been saying that about Gore for the last half-decade.

    If anything I'd expect Lynch to have a better year than last year, the Seahawks O-Line is massively improved and if they can steer free of the injuries that plagued them last year, he should have a year somewhere between his 2012 and 2013 seasons - probably closer to the 2012 year.

    I had 2 drafts last night - one for a 12 team league where I drafted 2nd and another for a 14 team league where I came in at 13th (UGH), however, erratic drafting always seems to take place.

    In the 12 team league I ended up with:

    Cutler/Romo
    Peterson/Leveon Bell/Ray Rice/Chris Johnson/Khiry Robinson
    Jordy Nelson/VJax/Harvin/Bowe/Reggie Wayne
    Heath Miller
    Janikowski
    Saints D

    Have to say I'm massively pleased with that.

    other draft went OK too;

    Romo/Dalton
    Murray/Spiller/Gore/Pierre Thomas/Khiry Robinson
    AJ Green/VJax/Harvin/Steve Smith/R.Wayne
    Gates
    Folk
    Saints D

    As you can see, a lot of players I picked twice, which means I'm all in on some positions, but I think I've got solid depth at RB and WR so when presumably one or two of the players get injured or have underwhelming seasons, I have solid enough backups to go for. There are always solid players available on the waiver wire anyway, last year I picked up a load of solid players at all positions throughout the season (because my top 3 draft picks all ended up on IR!)

    Are you guys doing fantasy? I don't know anything about fantasy lol. Thought I'd give you guys my week 1 predictions (winner in green)

    Green Bay Packers @ Seattle Seahawks (bold I know)
    Buffalo Bills @ Chicago Bears
    Cleveland Browns @ Pittsburgh Steelers
    Jacksonville Jags @ Philadelphia Eagles
    New England @ Miami Dolphins (go pats)
    New Orleans Saints @ Atlanta Falcons
    Carolina Panthers @ Tampa Bay Bucs
    Cincinnati Bengals @ Baltimore Ravens
    Washington Redskins @ Houston Texans
    Tennessee Titans @ KC Chiefs
    Minnesota Vikings @ STL Rams
    Oakland Raiders @ NY Jets
    SF Niners @ Dallas Cowboys
    Indy Colts @ Denver Broncos
    NY Giants @ Detroit Lions
    SD Chargers @ Arizona Cardinals

    Thoughts?
    I'd pick the Cardinals and Seahawks to win... the Bucs-Panthers game and the Rams-Vikings game are really close but I see Carolina and Minnesota coming out of those better, so if I had to pick I'd say I disagree with you on 3 counts, but they're all close calls, so I may well be wrong

    Join up pal. As far as I'm concerned it's got too close to the draft to get picky about who joins. Welcome to the league!

    In other news, Pete Carrol takes 'COMPETE' to new levels. Earl Thomas is going to be their #1 Punt Returner... What is he thinking!?

    Ughh, I can understand it but seriously? Just not sure the payout is worth the risk.

    Especially when he's the best DB of, and the key to the success of that secondary. But then the Seahawks can't really risk having Percy Harvin return kicks, punts and play on offense.

    Just to confirm the draft should be 8gmt. For some reason when I load the link above it says 4pm. If someone again could tag team owners to get them to confirm this that would be great. I'm Home tonight, can change the time and start organising myself lol.

    Sorry about the mess.

    Hi, I signed up to the league. I'm James and I'm the owner of Mile High Madness. It's coming up as 1600 BST(GMT?) for me as well.
    As league manager you can change the times, in Draft settings, iirc.

    I know it has to be done before the season stars, but it has just occured that I clearly underestimated the times involved for the draft process. I'm doing an exchange year at Idaho State, so I'm actually on MST at the moment, seven hours behind.

    I really want to do a proper draft, however. With the blessing of the group, can I be a right c*nt, considering the upcoming deadline, and ask for it to be moved to thursday morning, please? Anytime from 0800 BST - 1600 BST start would be ideal.

    If not -- I get that y'all might be busy, but I would then use an autopick and hope for the best. :cool:
