A guide would be nice...thanks...
Please see above ^^^^^
I really don't wish to ask you for help. I do this so when I beat you this season, you will take no credit for my success. I'm also figuring that Aurora will have your number also...
Heck...Laimbeer should even beat you....
Coynejeremy will beat you even if he drops out....
The Raiders...SERIOUSLY????? You may as well stick with the Lions.
How the heck did I post that last post twice? Reading my posts once is bad enough. Someone please eliminate the first one.
Nems, just be sure to test the site days earlier so there's no surprises.
Do a mock draft.
Yes. Good point. Do more than one and from different draft positions (frontish, middleish, and endish).
Also on testing your site, sometimes it works during the test but then fails at crunch time. Be sure to set your pre-draft rankings just in case and hope for the best...

we draft 8-24 11 at 11:30 PM EST----wednesday
we need 1 more team, 5 minimum
Things to do beforehand and other tips:
1. Test your system to ensure the draft application will work correctly.
No-brainer. Requires Adobe Flash Player and most browsers are compatible. HINT: If you are particularly IT-challenged, Adobe Flash is directly integrated with Google Chrome and enabled by default (No I do not work for Google).
2. Rank your players up until 45 minutes before your draft.
Very important. If you somehow lose connection during the draft, your preferred order remains intact and you'll be more likely to auto-draft a player you want. Even if you just rank 50 or 100 guys it will make your life easier. You can also use it to make sure you don't draft players you want to avoid. You can exclude them from your rankings altogether! I'm looking at you Michael Crabtree
3. Join a mock draft to practice your draft strategy.
You could spend weeks doing mocks. It will allow you to see who is likely to fall where, when do the positional runs occur, where does your pet player usually go, etc. Make sure you do at least one from Yahoo so you get familiar with their draft app. And make sure it has the same number of teams as our league of course!
4. The draft order will be randomly determined approximately 30 minutes before the draft begins.
Get into the draft asap and check your draft spot. You may just be able to sneak in one more mock draft at your given spot!
5. Know who is injured.
Nothing worse than drafting a guy who starts the season on the PUP.
6. Check those Bye weeks.
You don't want to draft your backup QB only to find out he has the same bye week as your starter. For most managers, not having too many players on the same bye week will also make your life easier when it comes to roster management. You might otherwise be forced to drop a guy you want to keep in order to field a full squad. But there are alternative strategies so I'm not to say what's right or wrong. Just don't forget them.

Ahhhh...week one I'll be pitted against Bezeach. All I know is that he appears to be an avid Michigan football fan, so I know he has exceptional intelligence.
I want to wish him good fortune...after the first week...
I will also predict that Aurora will clobber whomever she is against in week one.
Another GIGANORMUS matchup: The league starts off with what we in Europe often call the Super Cup - the reigning playoff winner vs the reigning regular season winner - in Wreckerz vs Wolverines. Don't miss out on that one, it might be the game of the year.
Draft room is open!
This was fun...Hopefully, I did well.
the team "da Raiders" looked very average to me.
looks like a top 14 team to me...
you should see the team I drafted with 10 teams.
I hate to write this...but I kinda like Laimbeer's team. Has a lot of people that I wanted. By the way...what is the name of your team? I only know a few of the owners...
Didn't you pick Carson Palmer in the first round last year and grabbed 3-4 stud TE:s? That was a sweet team.
At first glance, I think detteam had a great draft. It's hard to tell with 14 teams....
Dang you Moog, you got a good team again.
