We will have to do the draft tomorrow night - I'm away for the weekend :D

We need 4 /6 / 8 /10 etc teams though
Ethiaa + theadore + Jim + me = 4?

I got my days confused - it's cos I'm off work tomorrow. I've created the league and we can draft tomorrow night... pick a time! I've set it for 7pm but we can change it.

You'll all need an account on NFL.com if you haven't got one... http://fantasy.nfl.com

If anyone else wishes to join let me know so I can sort out the team slots. No actual knowledge required - the system both suggests and will pick for you if you've really nfi.

Ah we all have to be actively online together for the draft? May be able to do that tonight after about half 9 when the wee bairn has gone upstairs for a feed.... or will it just do stuff automatically if I'm not on?

Yeah, the idea is to be online at the same time. It'll draft automatically based on the the NFL.com rankings if you aren't there. To be honest with only 4 teams all the lineups are going to be incredibly strong anyway.

Yeah... That's a pretty bad site.

I'm hoping the broken mock draft in the app is actually an accurate indecision simulator

I'll leave the draft time as 7pm tomorrow evening - I can only set it for tomorrow onwards so can't do tonight regardless.

Cracking result for the Chiefs last night!

Most yards and points against Bellicheck ever, apparently. Alex Smith is definitely just a game manager though....
