    Every year Receivers and Qb's and to a lesser extent Running backs, ranked anywhere can be season keepers. The apparent draft order can be misleading.
    If you miss out on the known guns early on, i see no harm in an early Rodgers pick for example. Or Gronk early if he is still the Gronk.
    For example, if you miss out on the top few wide receivers,    rule players would say u should pick the apparent next best one or two ranked players. Which in addition would make you miss out on the Rodgers or Gronk or whoever you had in mind.

    Draft mind games boys or what !

    and so it begins.....

    Think Mile Williams would of been gold for us had he not got injured...huge red one threat. Corey Davis probably has the best chance with Decker opposite side to him

    Theres a few (potentially) good rookie RBs & TEs floating around but it wasnt a great WR class. Davis in TEN probably the only safe bet. Zay Jones has a bit of buzz about him - Switzer in Dallas is a great smokey but he's so low ranked I doubt he's been drafted in many mocks to date.

    So he wont have to play against the no fly zone this season? Thats a plus... Id take him in the 15th to stash and see what happens. If the news turns bad, just drop him for cover through the bye weeks and theres nothing really lost.

    http://fantasyfootballcalculator.com/mockdrafts

    This is the site I use for mock drafts. Normally have one running every few minutes.

    My main league is a 16 man league so used to chasing deep sleepers. Will take some getting used to in a 10 man league

    Not sure anyone worth grabbing, relatively, like Cooper was in his debut.

    Cooper was a average 4th round pick in 2015. There are 4 rookies going in the 4th or higher, albeit all RBs. Theres a good chance at least one of those turns into a top 10 at their position. If they played WR you could draw Amari comparisons.

    Yes for sure, wasnt sticking to WR, just mean guys that were picked at a similar time and paid off.

    Cant wait for the season to start.

    2 spots for promotion, overall league winner and winner of league Superbowl. 6 team playoffs, league finish position 1-6. playoffs begin Weeks 14, 15 and 16 of NFL season
    If overall league winner also wins Superbowl, Superbowl runner up will be promoted

    League 1

    Bottom 2 teams are relegated, playoff set up is same as above

    PF will be the determining factor if points total are equal.

    Shanbon can you amend playoff settings to suit above please mate

    Done.

    Can you please confirm:
    Trade deadline - No Deadline
    Trade review by votes - 1 day time limit
    Waiver period - 1 day - move to last after claim no reset
    Tiebreaker - head to head
    Divisions - 1 division

    League 2 guys would you prefer NFL.com randomises draft order 30min prior to draft or i can use a randomiser site and do it a week before draft so people can plan around positions? (helpful for guys that cant make draft day)

    This is another thing I wanted to ask

    I think using an outside site is better for planning around draft positions than 30 mins before the draft. Cheers for reminding me mate
