I can't say I'm thrilled at the notion of changing it now that we're only about a week away. Moving it earlier kinda messes with people and moving it later puts it awfully close to the start of the first game.

I am open for suggestions and would consider it if most if not all are on board.

I just might be running two drafts at once. No worries, I'll find some way to make things work.

I think it's been posted for nearly a month. :P Besides, you working two drafts at once gives us a handicap that we all need against you!

I was nearly in the same position as you, until we rescheduled our draft in my second league. 14 teams drafting should give you enough time between each to make selections. Windows snap could also be helpful, if tab switching turns you off.

Why All of Your NFL Fantasy Picks SUCK

Did you pick any of these guys in your fantasy draft? Well they, and you, suck. Here’s why. (Note: players ranked using ESPN.com’s fantasy rankings.)

1. Adrian Peterson - Adrian Peterson ran for 2,097 yards last year. Awesome! Unfortunately, this isn’t last year. This is this year and Peterson is in for a huuuuuuuge drop-off in production. Before Peterson eclipsed the 2,000-yard mark last season, six other running backs in NFL history had done so. Not one of them came close to 2,000 yards the next season. Not even in the same zip code. In fact, the average — average – drop in yards the next season was 968 yards. NINE HUNDRED AND SIXTY-EIGHT YARDS. So, let’s do this math here.

2,097 – 968 = 1,129 yards.

Congratulations. You just used your first pick on a guy who will run for about 1,100 yards this year. You just used your first pick on BenJarvus Green-Peterson.

Idiot.

2. Arian Foster - Foster’s yards per carry have dropped precipitously the last three years — from 4.9 to 4.4 to 4.1 — while his carries per game have gone up each year. And he has missed all of the preseason with calf and back injuries. Yeah, all of this totally does NOT sound like obvious signs of a running back who is breaking down … if you are a moron.

3. Marshawn Lynch - Hey, if you want to use a 1st Round pick on a guy with a history of police issues and whose training table is just a bowl of Skittles, by all means. Just please join my fantasy league first.

4. Ray Rice - Rice’s touches have declined each of the past two years, he’s pretty much the only offensive weapon the Ravens have left, so defenses will be keying only on him, and Bernard Pierce is going to take most of Rice’s carries near the goal line. What’s not to love here???

5. Doug Martin - Doug Martin had more than 1,000 yards rushing as a rookie last year. Neat! Remember when Cadillac Williams had a 1,000-yard season as a rookie in Tampa Bay in 2005? He never had another one. Remember when LeGarrette Blount had a 1,000-yard season as a rookie in Tampa Bay in 2010? He never had another one. This is what Buccaneers running backs do. But apparently you forgot that. Apparently you are dumb.

6. Jamaal Charles - Who knows when Charles will be completely healthy. But when/if he does get healthy, he’ll get to be underutilized out of the backfield by Andy Reid, so that’s exciting. A nice lose-lose scenario for you.

7. C.J. Spiller - C.J. Spiller says he wants to run this year “until he throws up,” which is exactly how you should feel because you just drafted a BUFFALO BILL IN FANTASY FOOTBALL. Good god, man. Get someone to hold your hair.

8. Trent Richardson - Trent Richardson is rocketing up fantasy draft boards. Is it his 3.6 yards per carry as a rookie? Is it the injury concerns? Is it the stunning NFL success of fellow Alabama running back Mark Ingram? Is it having Brandon Weeden around softening up the defense for him? Is it playing for the Browns? Stop me when I get to the reason.

9. Alfred Morris - Alfred Morris could have another really good season in 2013. Or Mike Shanahan could suddenly just throw Roy Helu or someone in to take half or all the carries because this is what Mike Shanahan does with running backs. Do you really want to trust Shanahan? RG3′s knee ligaments think you should not.

10. Calvin Johnson - If you have to take a receiver early, you definitely want to go with a guy who had 5 TDs last year; a guy whose quarterback is always a good bet to miss games due to random injury or not being able to fit a game jersey over his fat face; a guy who still has the full weight of the Madden curse coming to him plus interest. Oh, you don’t believe in the Madden curse or think that Johnson avoided it last year? Fine. Then there’s this: the Detroit Lions.

11. LeSean McCoy - When you look at LeSean McCoy’s four-year NFL career, the 2011 season when he had 1,309 rushing yards and 17 rushing TDs kind of stands out as an aberration, considering he averaged 852 yards and 3 TDs the other three years. But, hey, I don’t mean to judge you if you have some sort of special “aberration-based” fantasy football drafting system going. You do your own thing, guy. Be proud.

12. Aaron Rodgers – Wow. You must think Aaron Rodgers is really good. Like, really really really really good. Supernaturally good. So good that he’ll eclipse all other quarterbacks this year despite throwing to a corps of No. 3 receivers and a tight end who can’t catch. Because if he can somehow do that, that would be really good. Completely impossible. But good. It’s fun to dream, no?


13. A.J. Green - Confident taking a guy whose production is based entirely on the success of Andy Dalton, are ya? Well, good for you. You probably also believe that gingers have souls, but that’s not a leap most people of sound mind are willing to take.

14. Drew Brees - If passing yards and touchdowns were the only stats that counted for quarterback in fantasy football, Drew Brees would be a no-brainer pick. Unfortunately, turnovers are negative points and Brees has developed the ability to lose the ball even more than he loses hair: 24 turnovers last year and 31 two years before that. But don’t worry, all of his turnovers are likely just a blip. There’s just no record of “gunslinging” quarterbacks getting increasingly unproductive and reckless as they age.

15. Steven Jackson - Remember how everyone used to say that Steven Jackson would be so good if only he had a real team around him? Well, now he does have a real team around him on the Falcons. Only remember that we started saying that about Jackson almost 10 years ago. He’s ancient for an NFL running back now. Why did you wake him for a stupid fantasy draft, jerk? Let the old guy nap in peace.

16. Dez Bryant - Oh, yeah. This is the year he puts it all together and becomes unstoppable. Not last year. Not the year before that. Not the year before that. This year. Yes. Him and the Cowboys. Nothing but success. Totally. Yes.

17. Matt Forte - Well, it’s not a sexy pick. It’s not even a particularly good pick. Forte doesn’t score a lot of touchdowns and only barely cracks the 1,000-yard rushing mark (when he even does). But it’s a pick. And that’s what you have to do at a fantasy draft: make picks. And you did that here. You picked a person in the NFL. Nice work.

18. Stevan Ridley - Hey, it’s not so bad. Now next year you can commiserate with the other guys in your league who also were once dumb enough to use an early pick on a Patriots running back. Small talk is important to building more meaningful friendships.

19. Peyton Manning - Ol’ Frankeneck surprised many by making it through last season un-decapitated and that’s sure to happen again, what with his rigorous offseason workout regimen of commercial shoots and slouching. And Manning is 37 now, so it’s probably just onwards and upwards for him. No reason to be concerned about having him as your starting quarterback.

20. Brandon Marshall - Oh, jeez. You know what? If you hate yourself this much, just pick Jay Cutler. In fact, no … quit. Just quit fantasy football. Forever. You’re an embarrassment.
