    Had a fantasy football draft on NFL.com last night, just as another one to sink my teeth in to. It went on auto-pick I think. This is my team...

    QB - Michael Vick (Eagles)
    RB 1 - Frank Gore (49ers)
    RB 2 - Knowshon Moreno (Broncos)
    WR 1 - Santonio Holmes (Jets)
    WR 2 - Vincent Jackson (Chargers)
    WR 3 - Sidney Rice (Vikings)
    TE - Owen Daniels (Texans)
    K - Stephen Gotskowski (Patriots)
    DEF - Pittsburgh Steelers

    BN - QB Jay Cutler (Bears)
    BN - RB Tim Hightower (Cardinals)
    BN - RB Ryan Matthews (Chargers)
    BN - WR AJ Green (Bengals)
    BN - WR Austin Collie (Colts)
    BN - TE Brandon Pettigrew (Lions)



    Pretty dang pleased
    Cutler seems like a pretty good bet for QB2. I'm hoping to pick him up being a Bears fan and all.

    He'll send two games a season sitting under a pile of bodies though....

    I would prefer a QB who will be 100% points, or similar, but if it's late in the game I would take Cutler over quite a few other QBs and I don't think anyone else is likely to take him as a QB1 so if I can pick up some top players for some other positions I'm comfortable with Cutler who I think could get some decent points.

    I'm very new to this though and could be talking crap :awesome:

    Im a Bears fan and big on Cutler but in fantasy you have to watch he doesn't throw too many picks (which are worth minus points) to ruin his value, he is always a top 10 or near enough quarterback though so worth a start if you select him in the later rounds

    NFL.com leagues have a decent amount of customization options, so essentially they are up to us.

    I would imagine the default scoring system would be perfectly adequate.

    I'm in favour of a live draft, and those who can't make it can just have an auto-picker do it for them by ranking players.

    Playoffs would be top 6 teams (presuming we get about 8-10 teams playing.

    And I would go for what I usually do which is simpler and IMO better, in that we have 1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE, 1 K, 1 SPECIAL TEAMS , 1 DEF and 6 BENCH.



    These are just my suggestions though. Although I would be the commissioner, I'm willing to use whatever rules, scoring systems etc that we all agree on as a whole...

    I can't see the owners trying to pull a fast one of this scale-it'd be bloody mental...

    Various NFL journos saying that this has been done to save face of owners and villainize the players..some players saying this has no chance

    I wish they'd all stop being selfish, greedy *******s, put their lives and careers in perspective and then sort out a deal.
