    For those that just do redrafts this thread may be a little early. We fired up a TMB dynasty league last year, so we have more guys here preparing for the rookie drafts in a few weeks.

    I may consider firing up a superflex dynasty league as well. I thought the ability to start 2 QB's would be stupid, but it's by far my favorite league. It adds a whole other dimension to roster management, drafting, trades, etc.

    If you get the itch to mock draft or want to see what the way too early ADP's look like this site is pretty solid.

    Keep in mind that some of the formats ADP's like 2QB are based off only a few mock drafts and have some sloppy rankings this early in the season.

    Traded all my picks because this class sucks. Plus, I was picking 11

    We in a consensus the first 6 picks are RBs? Bell, Gurley, Zeke, Kamara, Hunt and Fournette?

    unless for some reason you had a ridiculously stacked team, why would you ever play anything other than a qb in the flex if you could?

    12 team leagues with bye weeks and/or injuries can get tricky on being able to start 2 QB's every week. For me last year it seem to put more pressure on having good depth at every position to cover my bases, and I simply punted on the TE position and went with Austin Hooper the whole year to help other positions.

    Here was my 2017 superflex league. If you look at the rosters you can see several teams that struggled to field two decent QB's.

    I won that league and own the 1.1 and 1.2 rookie picks...Kamara, Hunt, Saquon, and Guice for the entire careers :jizz:

    Most all dynasty leagues operate that way. For example, guys like Cooper Kupp were on waivers to start the year in redraft, but in dynasty he was already an asset to roster through the rookie draft in the late 2nd/early 3rd round.

    Yeah so I joined that league bingbing recruited for and the team I took over SUCKS. I should only have to not half. Bing will collecting money for a long time in that league. How the hell did you get the first two picks this year. I don’t even have a first round pick and my team sucks.

    The QB and WR are ok but the RBs are crap. Probably take a year or two to get turned around but that is part of the fun. I just know this year is lost already. My first pick is #20 and 21 in a 12 team league. Problem also is you can’t tank for good draft picks because they take what your best lineup would have scored every week and that sets up the draft for the next year. Just can’t figure out how bing won the league and has top 2 picks.

    I wouldn't pay if I didn't have a first round pick. Sounds like Bing traded the former owner of your team. Or if it's NFL they may not have the picks set up yet.

    Usually the Comish will have something set up where you pay next year's fee if you trade your future 1st rounder

    Most those flunkies are right there with you in Tampa. My WRs are crap so I don't know about dominating.

    I made both trades during the draft. I gave up my 2nd and Edelman for a 1st. Then a guy ran his mouth and said I had the worst team in the league. I told him out his money where his mouth is and I offered my 1st rounder for his 1st to bet that I would finish ahead of him. I finished 1st and he finished dead last bwaaahaaaaaahaahaaaa!

    Gotta thank the Pats for taking Sony and rendering him mediocre. Was worried he would go somewhere he would be used a lot. What a completely worthless first round for ff picks.

    Nothing until they get a new OL. Thats a team that is trending down.

    a couple of guys left could make a splash.

    My initial rankings for Dynasty. Usually do ranking right after draft and keep the list unless something serious happens during camp.

    We have a superflex Empire league (half the pot rolls over every year, first person to take it down in back-to-back years wins the pot) where I accepted an offer of Cam Newton for 1.05 in the rookie draft. Think I did pretty well considering how valuable QBs are in this format.

    I was actually trying to get Mahomes off of him but he wasn't having it. Mahomes will be a Top 10 QB this year IMO.

    Crazy thing is that the guy that tried to get Mahomes from me for 1.5 ended up trading that pick and Marvin Jones for Aaron Rodgers. Clearly a lot of people have not adjusted to superflex.

    I have almost no idea right now which Packer rookie it will actually be, but I feel like one of St. Brown or Moore will overtake Allison at some point this year to become the 3rd WR.

    I’ve said it before (and I’ll say it again!) but if you haven’t ever done an auction draft, give it a shot. It makes it much more fair and no one can complain. It’s a lot of fun just ripping on your friends when they overspend
