    Love it.

    DH cooked me dinner.  Now we are watching the movie The Founder.

    Need to check on my draft.   Oh and drink wine virtually  with you. :tongue:

  • Can we do a run down of who is who - I think I know most but there might be one or 2 screennames/teamnames I'm not sure of. Or maybe a non public way to do it if that is better?

    ETA: Yahoo gave me a B. Because I'm a Badass.

    What!  I had no idea!  :P

    Alas, I was not able to be present for the drafting, but I will be more prepared next week.  I suspect auto-drafting probably improved my chances, lol.

    I did figure out how to change my team name to my username here, so you all would recognize me :).  It was originally assigned "Jennifer's Team" and I had about 20 seconds of "freak out", trying to figure out how Yahoo possibly could have known my first name.  Then I connected the dots that I also happened to be logged into my Yahoo Mail.  Sneaky, lol!

  • I couldn't figure out who was auto-drafting last night. I knew @atomicblonde and @kimmiinthemitten were live drafting but I wasn't sure who else was. 
  • I was live drafting

    I think just @lyndausvi and @short+sassy were on auto-draft.

    I'm just glad y'all took my advice and no one drafted a defense in the first round. I was surprised so many QBs went so early, though. That threw off my game a little, haha.

    Me too! H was watching too and asked why so many QBs were going. Yahoo didn't like me waiting on a QB either apparently.

    I think @lyndausvi autodrafted a QB first and that caused a firestorm.  I still didn't see who got my boyfriend Justin Tucker.  Three leagues and I'm without my ace in each of them.

  • I'd like to thank you all for encouraging me to draft with parents still milling around at the school  :D

    I was a bit distracted and hadn't realized I drafted so many RB...my report card really let me have it

    I dont normally draft QB early but then I realized this league was structured differently than ones I was previously in and it seemed like I needed a good QB and WR for big points. Back in the day it was all about getting a good RB first round or two

    Edit: My report card made fun of me for taking 2 kickers, it said it wasn't futbol LOL. But I really just hate the whole trading/drafting stuff for bye weeks and I figured why draft more WR/RB/TE who are always going to sit on the bench.

    Mine hated on how young my list was, and that I didn't pick a better QB. They rated me a B; and said I'd lose all but two games.

    Assuming Lynda is "Chef's Team", it looks like she did.

    I realize fantasy football isn't necessarily about favorite teams and players.  But still. I see @sparklepants41 got my Drew Brees as a back-up QB.

    I am Chef's team. Which confused me, but then I remembered my yahoo account is my throwaway account and I used the dog's name.

    I did auto-draft.  Not even sure what number I was in the draft.  Oh well.   And I would never pick a QB first on purpose. I didn't understand yahoo's format.  Didn't take the time to learn either.   I use ESPN on the other league.

    Oh well.


    Let the games begin.

    Not that I would trade a QB for a kicker (plus I already have two kickers), but we can call it even since you nabbed Hauschka  ;)
