    Default 2009-2010 Fantasy League Draft Discussion

    I'll go ahead and start this thread now so people can gloat, or complain about their draft position. Discuss strategy and whatever else. I did the same thing I did last year to come up with the draft order.

    Random draw with JUST the non-keepers, random draw with JUST the keepers, then another random draw with everyone included this time.

    Since I know Lost will probably bring it up we are not going to do trading draft picks.

    Just to start off, not sure I like the big gap between my 2nd pick before I'm able to take a 3rd guy. But I suppose it'll do.

    If guys are around you should let the draft rip....couldn't hurt?

    I want to give at least a little bit more time for schedules to get released, and for issues about whether guys are wrestling or redshirting to get worked out.

    I may start it sometime the week before 10/5 especially if we get a push from a majority of the league about being ready. In fact this is probably more likely than not given that I think we've started the draft each year before the posted start date due to everyone being excited to get it going.

    I would be ready to start whenever.

    I feel like I got shafted in #6 and #10.

    I demand a recount!

    My draft position for rounds 1 and 2 is going to provide me with some interesting choices when it comes time for us to start picking.

    There is a certain wrestler (who shall not be named) that I'm really hoping to get, problem is I think #5 especially given who will still be on the board is a little high for him.

    Come draft time going to be a lot of hoping and praying on my end between the#5 and the #16 picks.

    Almost makes me wish I'd drawn a lower pick.

    Bored and amped up for the league this year so I thought I’d do a little bit of analysis of last years draft. I ranked all returning players in order of overall AA picks, and listed which rounds they picked an AA in. Some interesting notes I came across:

    - Of the top 4 by # of AAs, I was the only one to make the playoffs, and the worst 3 pickers in the league by # of AA’s all made the playoffs.

    - I had the longest streak of AA picks, with all of my first 7 picks netting podium spots by the end of the year. Mojo had the 2nd longest with 5.

    - Mojo had by far the most impressive feat of the draft, 4 of his first 5 picks ended up being national champions. Unfortunately, he must have run out of Mojo, because he only got 1 additional AA in the next 10 rounds of picking.

    - I cleaned house with 10 AAs, significantly ahead of the rest of the field.

    - Dart drafted 4 former AA’s that failed to place, the most of anyone.

    - TLV and Wiltz were the only two NOT to pick an AA with their first two picks.


    - TLV rocked the late rounds picks, with AA’s in the, 9th, 10th, 11th, and 13th rounds.

    - Of 20 finalists last year, an astounding 5 of them (or 25%) were picked in round 9 or later.

    - Rounds 9-15 had 19 AA picks. When combined with the 5 AA’s during the supplimental, more then 30% of all AAs were picked after the first 8 rounds. I haven’t looked extensively, but from my memory I believe that only 3 out of 80 were not drafted by our league at one point or another.

    Had you not been so adamant about drafting your boyfriend Dobies in the 8th round you may have been able to find someone to run your AA streak out to 9.

    haha :P Very likely true

    But that ended up being a very solid pick for me, he scored me over 100 points during the regular season, and then I ended up trading him for AA Patacsil.

    So he might as well have been an AA
