I'm not playing this year. I changed the team name to REPLACE THIS TEAM.
ESPN League has been reactivated. I will be sending out emails to confirm participation for last year's players this weekend. Any open spots will be posted here and filled first come, first serve.
Please keep in mind that this is an auction draft and it takes several hours. Missing the draft creates big hassles. If you can't commit to the draft, don't play. I try to get a date/time that works for everyone but you know how that goes.

Thanks for letting me know. Spot open.
If you want the spot, I will need an email address. Post here that you want in, email here or PM me the email. Makes things easier.
Is this a money league? I've never done an auction league so I'll probably be really n00b, but I'd give it a shot. Email PM'ed.
I'd like the next open spot, please. I'll PM you my Email address.
I play in both a blind auction and a pick league and although the bling auction league is way better, I still have fun with picking. You guys going to be doing this over skype or what?
Any word on the ole keeper league?
I'll get in on this too if there is a spot, I PM'ed my email earlier, intrigued by the auction.
Currently playing HotS and Overwatch
Edited first post with team names.
I'll sort through my inbox at work today (because that's what work is for) and make the wait list.
I sent 2nd notice emails out to all owners to go to the league page and click your team in the poll. It's the easiest way for me to know who is playing or not. I'm giving it to Sunday night for everyone to do so, that should be plenty of time.
Remember this is a 1 keeper league and anyone new coming in will have to select someone.

Waiting for someone to accept an invite. Check yo mail
Draft is set. Alex, check mail.
I think I joined this one. I'm At Least We're Not Cleveland. Sorry, I received a lot of invite emails and they all seem to overlap.

Anyone want my spot in this league? Team name is Demaryius Targaryens. Got roped into two additional leagues through job/in-laws, and a bit over-committed to fantasy now. If nobody does, I'll still play, but wanted to volunteer.
FYI, this is a 1 keeper league so make sure you select your keeper. The auction value of your keeper gets deducted from your 200.00 pool at draft time, so pick accordingly.
Peyton Manning was only 23 of that 200? Not too shabby of a keeper.
Pork, Tae, work that out please.
I had Josh Gordon for 2 bucks....but yeah, he will be available for drafting.
Pork I invited you as a second owner for Taebin's team. Draft is Sunday 8 EST
Check Spam? I'll send again.
Found the email and joined. I was thinking it would show somewhere on the espn site

I hate to be a douche but I forgot I'm still going to be out of town this Sunday, and reception is crap at the lake. Changed my team name to "CantMake Draft" if you can find anyone to take over the slot.
Reminder that this thing is kicking off in about 2 hours. 8pm EST, 5pm PST.
Gonna be pissed if any of you fuckers are late.
40 mins. Don't be that guy (like Ham. Ham is that guy.)
4 minutes to go, 4 of you fuckers missing.
I overslept by a couple minutes. Auto-bid $73 on Charles. I suppose there are worse players that could happen with.
This was much different than the last time I did an auction draft a few years ago...hopefully it ends with the same result, though. There were some insane bids, but I think I ended up with a pretty deep team.
My team isn't terrible for an auction auto draft. Did you guys dump all the Packers onto me or was it just pure chance?
would like Foster trade pushed through before Thursday, since Harvin plays and will lock
Can we trade into tomorrow? I wouldn't mind trading Jamal Charles for more depth. Maybe even Jamal Charles plus Gronk for some more sers depth.
The Foster trade is basically trading a 1st round pick for a 5th and 6th in a standard draft. I realize the team with Foster is light on receivers, but that seems awfully unbalanced.
(Or to put it in auction terms, it's trading $47 for $31. Everyone realizes it's J. Bell, not L. Bell being traded, right?)

I don't see much of a problem with it.
Its fine imo
Maybe I'm the only one that sees trading a 5th and a 6th for a 1st as lopsided. If so, that's fine, but I thought it was worth talking about at least.
(Once the season starts, I don't care where someone was drafted or what their value was, as things change as soon as players take the field. But right now, pretty much the only barometer of value is draft position and auction price.)
At best Bell is splitting carries, at worst he's a backup. Arian and Percy both miss 14 games a year. There is risk on both sides.
I'm not even sure which way you're saying the deal is lopsided for. Who do you think is getting the steal?
The team getting the 1st round pick for a 5th and a 6th. The team getting the player that went for $47 for the two that went for $31 combined.
I'm aware that I am getting the short end of the deal from a $ perspective. But...
I'm unconvinced anyone worries about Fitzpatrick, opponents stack the box against Foster, and he does not survive long. (The autodraft paid that for Foster, I sure wouldn't have.)
I'm unconvinced Bush survives long, and that Bell's role remains limited.
I'm short on receivers and need someone, and Harvin's played all of one game in the last 18 months, I hope he survives a bit.
Hell, my entire season depends on GB's thin OL surviving. What's one more roll of the dice.
tldr: I should have, you know, attended the draft! But, now I get to let Ham ass rape me because that's what Ham does. Assraping. Raping of ass. Rape.
in what league is foster a 1st rounder? lol
On average, he was the 9th pick in ESPN drafts. LOL
the more you know? I thought he was consistently thought of to have a major drop this year and was why nobody but computer bots were bidding on him
There should be a salary cap penalty for next year.
Theres plenty of doubt on either side of that trade, Wombat has been around for some time, he should know what he is doing.
We're the only people that have said anything on the forum so far. That's why there's a vote on the league site, though...which we'll never see the results of because the person who's getting the better end of the deal used his power to override that function. I'd let this go if I was the only one that felt that way, but the fact that there was any dissention at all should have meant that we had an official vote.

Is that a trade you would actually veto? Wombat explains himself up above. He's not getting taken advantage of. Snowballing a veto for anything short of collusion is lame. This trade was fine. Call it unfair if you want. Rally a veto and you're telling Wombat how to run his team.
Yeah, I'd veto that trade even after reading Wombat's reasoning. He's right that he didn't draft Foster, so he might not be that high on him, but the values are so lopsided in this situation, that I think it's a league balance issue and not a team management issue. A back-up running back and a receiver that can't stay healthy for a RB that was the a Top 2 pick as recently as last year. I understand him dropping this year because of those injury and other noted concerns, but he's still a featured back in a game where running backs are a prized commodity.
And what Tarrant said.
Alright, since draft ranking is all the rage these days and since this league often gets the least attention, here are my (possibly completely arbitrary) draft rankings for this league:
Starter Team Ranking (Based on the best starting team possible):
Full Team Ranking (Includes Bench)
Neither include defense nor kicker.
Percentages show how far you are from the number one team.
Also, take a moment to appreciate that these are my own metrics and I still managed to draft a mediocre team under them. Auction is hard.
Looks like I'm coming in last place then! #10 and #11 in your metrics.
someone should veto ESPN thinking I drafted well while they're at it, I just wish I could get Flavio to like my team though
Anyway, I dont think there would have been enough backlash to veto it anyway. I just think it's kind of dumb to look at a trade only from the perspective of you thinking it's fair or not.
You two maybe have a point with pushing it through early though.
The veto allows the league to stop lopsided trades. It's your interpretation that it should only be used to stop collusion.
(Edit: And it doesn't matter which one of is right on that point. The votes are there to determine the will/philosophies of the league.)

Time for some week 3 Power Rankings!
Did you just do actual power rankings yourself? That's awesome.
Also, I've historically done very well in this league where I had Megatron and Aaron Rodgers every season (seriously, like 3 years in a row). I missed out on Rodgers this year, but that's ok because he's fallen off a bit in fantasy. I'm not super thrilled with my team though and I imagine I'll be middling the entire season.
Didn't Gilg autodraft? Man, that's depressing.
I vote we make Kyoug an admin of the 16 team league so he'll do power rankings there
It's good to have Jamaal Charles show up.
Its time for the week 6 Power Rankings: Rise of The Murderous Marsupials IV - The Murpage (it's a rampage of murder):
As soon as the Packers go up against teams with real defenses again, the Marsupials will be back in the basement.
Packers might 40 burger today and I think both Cobb and Jordy get a piece.
Sucks to be so dominant throughout the season and then blow it in the first playoff game. Oh well.
