Well that was faster than I expected it to go. I thought it would go more than 2 hours. A little hard for me to keep up. Especially when the draft came back up from the bottom. I didn't have much time to check over my notes. packer Finland made it a little easier by giving me a few instructions of who he was looking for in the draft and when.

I wish you all the best of luck but just a little more luck to Fin.

I had planned on keeping my Monday open so I could pluck through players and formulate a list. Something more important came up.

If this league was a keeper league, I wouldn't keep a single player. Hopefully after a few weeks I can get some players I had hoped for! Tis will be a long season, but its how you finish that counts.

Lets go!

I'm thinking for NEXT SEASON, this league is going to have some tweaks.

From 14 teams to 12 teams. Expand the rosters and allow return yards. I actually thought I did the return yards, but quick look at the scoring rules shows different.

You're the commish, and I don't feel strongly either way, but here's my quick thoughts:

Return yards would be good, but would need to weight them so they aren't overbearing. I was in a league that treated return yards like receiving/rushing yards, and it really skewed some of the player values.

14 to 12 & expand the rosters: One of the things I liked about the format last year was it provided opportunities to improve your team through the year by judicious waiver-wire moves. Reducing the number of teams but expanding the rosters would reduce that dynamic.

I was thinking of expanding the rosters by 1 or 2 players tops. Nothing dramatic.

The return yards weren't added this year because I couldn't figure out a "fair" calculation to them.

I hate having more than one team in multiple leagues.. you find yourself having a player in one league but playing against that same player.. rooting for and against him at the same time.

Adds unnecessary pressure to watching the games. [grin1]

After seeing Fin's record I figure he is thinking this about me.

Nah, definitely not. My team caught some bad breaks after Fred Jackson got injured and MJD returned (thus, no plays for Rashad Jennings). Josh Freeman isn't doing nearly as well as I'd hoped.

I was happy with the way you drafted, I would've picked a very similar team myself.

just having a bit o fun. It is amazing how a player or two can ruin a season.

As for Josh, as Pack93 says, now that the real refs are back the offense should open up. He may do better over the coming weeks.

Any affect on this league?

Also, ESPN.com reports that the Elias Sports Bureau has credited a touchdown pass to Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger on what had been determined to be a touchdown run by Rashard Mendenhall on a lateral.

Though the former removes the current NFL sack lead from Watt, the latter could alter the outcome of fantasy games everywhere.

Amazing,

4 week losing streak and I average over 100 pts per game, I look tonight and have 62+ and am gonna win.

I guess the old saying "it's not who you play but when you play them " holds true in fantasy football also.

The Fighting Roadkill...4-4, not out of it yet!!!!

Due to the extreme nature of Hurricane Sandy, we are currently down, and seeking 100% uptime ASAP. We're working very hard with our engineers --24/7 -- to rectify everything. All data integrity is in tact, so you will have no worries on the statistical front -- everything is saved.

The backup generators our server was running on throughout the east coast were forced to temporarily shut down due to flooding and high winds.

We apologize and hope to be up and running soon -- and expect to be.

Again, Fleaflicker is currently down due to Hurricane Sandy that hit the east coast.

We hope to resolve soon, but we don't know when our datacenter will be back online. Our backup generators kicked in last night at 9 pm ET and failed around 530 am.

We'll do our absolute best to get back online ASAP but have no timetable. Follow on Facebook and Twitter for the latest. We're working 24/7 to get this fixed for our users and take these issues extremely seriously.

Thanks for your patience and we apologize for any inconvenience.
