Not bad for laying on a beach w/o technology. Sounds like next years plan.

I do not like the notion. To me that is a lack interest, apparently there are other things more important then drafting your own championship team, Then he set's his week 1 lineup and comes back in Dec to see he won the C/S ,,,,would that not be just 'turable' ugh!

I agree with Dana, if you can't draft your team, I will find another owner who is interested. We had an owner who got up 3 hours earlier, since he was in Hawaii on vacation and drafted via the Internet while we were partying it up in the cabana in Las Vegas.

I would agree with not autodrafting and with that being said I missed one of my leagues online draft this year due to me thinking is was the next week. Even had it on my calendar wrong, my bad I know and I felt terrible about it but I have to say that my autodrafted team is pretty dang strong. Lots of the other owners are worried, had multiple trade offers and turned down every one of them. Won't happen again though.

The team looks ok for a 10 team league. I wouldn't say its a great team. I'm in a 10 team league and all of our teams are good including our benches.

I don't like the idea of having someone autodraft, why bother playing. I like to know that my research paid off and feel like I earned it.
PPR, 12 teams
QB RG3, Dalton
RB R. Bush, F. Gore, R. B. Pierce, A. Ellington
WR H. Nicks, R. Randle, A. Dobson, R. Matthews

Agree with above posts. To me the draft is the most fun and absolutely my favorite part of the fantasy football experience.
