2019 GEDL Early Rookie Draft

Postby MARKinMI » Fri Apr 12, 2019 3:09 pm

Hey guys, just a heads up. I know a lot of you enjoy following our early rookie draft every year and it spawns a lot of chatter here on the forum. So our draft kicks of this Monday April 15th around noon et. This draft is 7 rounds (98 picks) NON IDP and we go much deeper than the initial MFL rookie pool. We often draft players not yet in the MFL system so those names can be found in the comments for the draft pick. This league is a 14 team PPR, 1 QB, Flex heavy league. We play for money so this isn't some glorified mock draft with no stakes.

This year's draft link is: http://www68.myfantasyleague.com/2019/o ... 17349&O=17

If you'd like to follow along and discuss the draft feel free. We often jump in here to explain our picks and thought processes. We only ask that you do NOT discuss players still on the board.

If you'd like to jump down the rabbit hole of our past draft threads you can follow this link and find links to subsequent drafts viewtopic.php?f=5&t=158206&hilit=GEDL+rookie+draft

I no longer need to follow the draft because I can now partake in it. 8-) Another famous DLF Forum alumni joined as well but I wil let that owner speak for himself (trust me he needs no one to speak on his behalf). :wink:

My team name was chosen by Forum poll consensus. 8-)

Sweeeet. I think I remember this last year and felt so bad for whoever drafted Kelly and ESB.

ESB went #19 overall to Fort Lupton Fire. Interestingly enough I am in a league where ESB went higher than #19 post-draft.

J. Kelly went #26 overall to Maryland Uprising. Don't feel too bad for them - they won the championship last year. :wink:

Yeah, I considered not posting it this year due to some push back in recent years by a few forum posters. Then one of my owners reminded me that he would never have been in the league if not for the annual forum threads. To be honest probably half of GEDL's owners have been posters cherry picked from these threads. This thread isn't a "hey look at us" or even an excuse to show off our league. its 100% about the rookies. At a time when people are getting mock drafted to death we offer a chance to see an actual draft that matters in the grand scheme of things. I've also found that posters are generally way more positive than not. The feedback we see in these threads is generally 90% positive TBH. We get the occasional poster asking "why should I care about your draft?" My answer is always the same. You don't have to. This thread isn't about our league. It's about the rookies. I'm not naive enough to think people tune in for us. Its all about where their favorite sleeper gets drafted or where did this years early bust candidate get taken. These threads all started about 7 years ago when I randomly mentioned I was in the middle of a draft and was asked to post it here on the forum. It has just ballooned from there.

My first pick is not until 3.09 - however the good news is that all the 'hate' on DK Metcalf makes me feel there is a 50/50 chance he will still be there for my first pick. :lol:

On a more serious note - with 7 of the top 20 picks it will be interesting to see what impact the Xenomorphs have. 8-)

It's always interesting to see a draft before the draft. It hss to make the actual draft even better to watch or maybe worse depending on where the landing spots are.

Indiana Icepicks present . Mark graciously invited me to join this league after several years of being a fanboy . I even started a league of my own that drafts right after the scouting combine - for other people to not care about :lol: - inspired by this one . I have no picks until 4:7 so I will be a spectator /fanboy likely for the early portion . I may attempt to trade in if I see value just have to see how things go.
