Is the draft order set in Fantrax - or will it be randomized before the draft?

I'm gonna step out shortly to run a couple of errands. If someone wants to take over a team, post your choice here (Birmingham Bulls or California Golden Seals, rosters listed on Page 4 of this thread) along with your 6 keepers, and send me a pm with the email address you have registered in Fantrax.

That Birmingham team is actually really good for keepers. If we can get 1 person, we can consider picking keepers for the 14th team and trying to fill it later. If not, I guess we'll have to delete both teams and go with 12 for this year.

Is the draft still a go tonight? Personally I wouldn’t allow a CPU team to draft. Takes away players that slide in the draft (value picks) as it always picks top ranked player available

Yep, draft is happening at 9:30pm EST.

I just finished the process of removing the last 2 teams from the league and finalizing keepers. All players listed on the FA screen are available to draft tonight.

I am thinking of removing one bench spot since it's now 12 rather than 14 teams. Anyone think that's a good/bad idea?

Couple of housekeeping items:

In previous years, this league had 3 head to head matchups per week. I noticed that teams only had 2 matchups scheduled this week, for some reason. Maybe due to having 12 teams instead of 14? A couple of other leagues I'm in have instituted a matchup where you play against the league average each week and it seems to work pretty well, so I added that in as the 3rd weekly matchup for all teams.

So each of our teams will play a head-to-head matchup against 2 other teams, plus 1 against the league average score.

I also removed one bench spot, so 5 bench spots instead of 6 means a 16-round draft instead of 17.

Now I'm confused ... was looking at the schedule and noticed that some teams had 2 matchups, and some had 3. I assumed this is because the schedule was generated when there was 14 teams, not 12. I added a matchup against league average but that didn't fix the problem.

So I removed the "league average" matchups, and found a way to regenerate the schedule. Hopefully every team now has 3 matchups this week, let me know if your team has more or less. I'll just leave it as 3 matchups against other teams in the league, rather than using league avg.

I like smaller benches with less teams.
