    Not really but if someone hasn't picked within half a day I will drop a PM, I wouldn't like to wait any longer than that but people have work and a life etc so getting it done right away isn't always an option. That's why iv been stressing folk keep an eye on the thread for their turn because this will be the most difficult part. Do you all think there should be say a 24 hr time limit?
    I reckon so - most of the folks who normally post in the NFL related threads are regular posters anyway, so I doubt it should be too much of an issue, but I dare say 24 hours is a fine limit

    Unless anyone objects after sergio's pick a 24 hr time limit will be imposed then the next person is free to pick. The pick missed will be allowed at the end of the draft.

    You should be allowed to pick for them. If he misses it, give him Brady .

    I did a little research over lunch today and I'm not sure I'll pick him even if he's available now. Weighed up the other "elite" QB's and their schedules and more points might be yielded with another one

    That's what I'm saying. In a 10 team league your better going for the value in other positions first as some good QB's will drop to the 2nd round and maybe even 3rd round. Did I ever find out if I get pick 10 followed by pick 11?

    yes you will have 10th and 11th overall picks as the 2nd round will be in reverse order

    I'm thinking of a better way. :) Is it possible to update the thread title with the name of the person who is currently picking? Or is that an admin function only?

    Right, I know the order, I just don't know when it's my turn...if that makes sense. :) I guess I just need to keep watching the thread and hopefully notice when it's me to go. Perhaps the person that makes a pick then sends a PM to the next person on the list letting them know it's their turn?

    I think that will require an admin.

    Good idea, perhaps people could try and do this from now on?

    Bear with me.....what does "bench" mean? I know it typically means second string but I don't know how it works with fantasy football. I mean, if available could I pick a second QB, or do bench players have to play in a specific position?

    EDIT : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fantasy...all_(American)

    I think this helps.

    say if your QB is on a bye week or against a tough D you could have a QB on the bench to be in your starting line up instead.

    Normally you can have who ever you want on it. It just works like a subs bench in football and you can sub the players if there's an injury or if one team is facing a harder team than another. It's like having Rodgers as your starting QB but one week he's up against a really tough D so you'll swap him for your reserve QB who's against a weak team and therefore score you more points that week. You just swap them back the next week. Like I said, that's how it usually works but with G listing and filling the teams I'm not sure how it works.

    That's exactly how it works, i remember reading that in the rules but cant find the page.

    Next question....is there an official list of players I can choose from? It's probably on the NFL.com website but apparently I'm expecting everyone else to do the research for me. ;)

    That'll do. I still have no clue what I am doing tactically but I am sure I will pick it up as we go along.

    As long as they've got a spot on a roster I'm sure you can pick any player out there that no-one else has picked. If your really unsure use ESPN to check out players, their stats and projections and see who to pick .

    http://games.espn.go.com/ffl/tools/p...s?display=alt&


    If your really struggling you can check out the players by position and they will put them in order of who's the best. Just work your way down till you find someone no one has picked yet.

    Yeah, that's what I plan on doing since I don't really follow football beyond the Patriots.....which is why team might end up looking familiar. It would be nice to know more about the players but I don't have the time for all the required research. I will just assume others have done their due diligence. For me, I think you could probably just take the best player available per position when it's my turn to pick because that's almost exactly what I will be doing.

    Just pick the players you like and have a bit of fun with it is my method. The pundits who micro-analyse every player in mock drafts etc etc have too much time on their hands and get it wrong more often than not. The hot QB you were supposed to go for as a #1 pick by the 'experts' last season was Michael Vick Thats the great thing about sport, its totally unpredictable...

    Like I said before, experts EH . To be fair, a fully fit Michael Vick isn't a bad pick. Them's the gamble you take.
