Draft currently set for Tuesday night, 9:30pm EST.

If people can't make it we can tinker with the time, but hopefully we can get it done then. We will also need to start the rookie draft asap, I won't have time today, but we can definitely get the ball rolling on Sunday re: setting the draft order & starting the rookie draft.

Sorry for the disorganization this year, I am just insanely busy right now. Last week i heard someone talking about the Week 4 preseason games and I was like WTF, I thought they were still in week 3!

There is a conflict with our original draft time tomorrow (Tuesday) so I have pushed back the draft for this league until Thursday, September 8 at 8:00pm EST. We could also consider doing an offline draft, provided that people are diligent in picking quickly. If everyone can do Thursday that should work (I may only be able to do about an hour or so though).

Still need to get everyone's keepers in and I will set up the rookie draft by Tuesday afternoon at the latest.

Damn, I forgot about that. I think Fantrax will add the points retroactively, but not 100% sure.

9:45 is starting late for me, have to be at airport at 5 am. I can do later on Friday or Sunday.

Any chance you could leave a bit early, Tober? Would 9:00 work for everyone? It's really hard to schedule these things because there's always a conflict, I will have to leave work myself to do any time on Thursday. But I think Friday and Saturday would end up being more difficult for more people.

Unfortunately, no chance of leaving early. If you can move it to 9 :15 pm...I will have to autopick until I get home around 9:30 pm

I can do 9:00 to accommodate.

Can guys not set a queue for a few rounds also. And if not just pick from your phone. We can't really postpone draft much longer then Thursday pm as season will already be under way.

Draft is set for 9:30pm EST. As HP said, it shouldn't take more than an hour.

Because some teams have rookie keepers that may not be placed into Minors roster spots yet, I expanded rosters and the draft to 25 rounds to accommodate the extra players. Since some teams have more rookie keepers than others, this may allow some teams to draft more players than actually allowed by the league's roster size.

At the end of the draft, teams can place their rookie eligible players into Minor League roster slots, and at that point need to doublecheck that they have 14 active players, 5 bench players, plus their owned rookies, and no more. If you have more players on your roster above this total, the extra players would need to be dropped immediately.

I also attempted to remove a bunch of rookies from the draft, so hopefully that worked. Still this is a reminder not to draft any rookie-draft eligible players, since the rookie draft is not yet completed.
