Making Your Pick: Formatting
When making picks, let's all stick to the same general format for consistency:
Full players name, current NFL team, position he will play on your team in bold
(If any players on your chart need to be moved as a result of this pick, please provide detailed instruction including full name of player to be moved and new position)
Photo of your draft pick
Here is an example of how we should make our pick, quoted (slightly modified) from the baseball draft. You can provide more or less detail in your explanation. Its up to you.
Jeremy Guthrie, Baltimore Orioles, SP
(Move Aba Alvarez to RP)
Some health concerns last year, and his having a slow start so far but as consistent as they come. And pitching for the O's meant having top 3 worst run support in the entire league among pitchers over 150 innings pitched.
Career lines of 3.97 ERA, 1.29 WHIP with 139 BB / 283 SO.
At age 30, he's much older than Haren, Lester (my two top picks for 2nd round) at 24, but should be a steady, if not spectacular #1 on the Wonderkinds.
P.S. Indians had DFA'd him in 07 before being picked up by the O's, thus the baseball card pic.
Time Limit on Picks
A couple notes. We will have a slightly more tight [i]time limit on picks. Each team owner will have a 6 hour window to make a pick before their pick is skipped. 2 exceptions:
1- On weekends, Saturdays and Sundays, the time limit will be 12 hours
2- The clock will freeze from 12 midnight to 6 am EDT. So. If someone picks at 10pm, and the next guy hasn't picked by midnight, they will use 2 hours of time from 10pm until midnight, and then the clock starts again at 6am with them having 4 more hours.
Also, the owner who has the wraparound picks only gets ONE 6 hour window. Then, they are skipped.
Any owner who as 2 consecutive picks skipped will have his/her team reassigned, so please, only commit if you plan on being able to check back frequently. Also, please understand that even WITH these time windows being instituted, this is a LONG TERM draft. I am hoping that we are able to get through one half a round a day on average. Given he roster requirements below, that means this should take at least 6 weeks, if not more. I'd like to to finish it before the NFL season begins at the very latest.
One tool which has been extremely helpful in the baseball RealFantasy draft is proxying. If you see that you will be unable to pick when your turn will be up, please send a short numbered list of 3-4 players to a fellow owner who can make the pick on your behalf. If saves a lot of time and makes for a smoother running draft with less likelihood of dropouts due to waning interest.
We are going to be drafting offenses and defenses, in addition to a kicker and a punter. That makes a total of 28 rounds.
As far as offense goes, i've allowed for a base setup and a couple of subs. An extra running back for running downs, and an extra WR for passing situations.
On defense, we will be drafting enough LBs and D-linemen to accomodate a 3-4 or a 4-3, and will also be drafting a nickel back.
Keep in mind, for both offense and defense, you can move guys around as you would like, but keep in mind, guys playing out of position may hurt your overall defense.
