Do what Dai said, read a bit, watch the pre season, look for a sleeper or two. Oh and accept that the guy picking before you will take the player you really hoped would fall as far your position, then get in a tizzy because you only have 90 secs to pick and you have dropped the bit of paper with your notes on. The wife/mum calls you, kids cry, phone rings and the dog barks just as its your pick.
At the end look at your squad, you'll rate half of them be disappointed by some of them and not even recognise a couple of names. Some of those you rate will disappoint, your blue chip players will get injured and you'll replace them with players whos mothers don't even recognise them.
The thing you'll need most is luck and don't forget there are not many blue chip kickers, always get one in round one or two

I was thinking of picking a kicker with first pick then a defence with pick two, sound good?

Thanks for the tips.

The draft date and time is perfect me. With the A&W drafting the nght before, looks like we're drafting two nights in a row!

Hey guys... I've finally gotten round to updating page 1. Sorry it took so long. Gives us a quick reference to the divisions, and who is who. I'll keep the standings up to date throughout the season too.

Also downloaded the NFL fantasy App for my phone. Not sure if it is any good or not... but I'll be able to keep on top of the two leagues 24-7 now!!

And presumably, I'd be able to do the draft from my phone, if I somthing comes up and I can't be at home on draft day.

Apologies to BMW sorry some imposter calle Kiick who would have preffered another night.
By my calculation the US are 5 hours behind us so it will be booked for 1500hrs
Unfortunately I will not be able to make draft(got a race that night) so it'll be auto draft for me. Still gives me a season long excuse.......

Voted on all the polls. Still prefer 4 playoff teams, keeps it really competitive, and 6 means the regular season is down to 13 weeks which I really dont like.
