Default **Upcoming Draft**

Hey Everyone,

Just a reminder that we'll be having our draft this Sunday evening at 8:15pm EST

If you're unable to attend the live draft, your team will be drafted automatically by the computer based upon player rankings. If you plan on missing the draft, I recommend that you go in and take a look at the draft rankings. In my fantasy football league this year, I couldn't make the draft and the computer drafted Peyton Manning as a first round pick. Needless to say, my team struggled.

Also, take a look at the league's draft settings to see if there is anything you think needs to be updated before we draft.

Apologies for the noob question, this is my first time in a fantasy league.

So I pick my 7 keepers, and then after that all the other plays go into the draft? Is that right?

And if I am not going to be able to stay up for the draft I set my draft settings and the league will do it automatically?

Yes and yes.

The draft can usually take about 2 hours. If you can, I recommend that you at least stay up for the first hour just so you can draft players of your actual choosing.

Everyone, welcome Ryan to the league. His team is the Longo Penas. He's taking over Wendy's team. Wendy bowed out as she doesn't have the time for the league this year.

Wendy, we wish you all the best!

Hey guys,

I don't think I'll be able to stay up for the draft tonight- got an early start in the morning.

I've set my keepers and updated my settings as far as I can see.

Best of luck everyone
