Hey you guys, I'm not in an AK league, but I ended up in another league. Its an NFL.com league. I never played this before! I'm used to watching NFL ball and some college. This last year was the only time I really paid attention to the draft. (since my team, the Bucs is so incredibly "needy" lol) So all the mock drafts on NFL.com are full for now. Damn! I have no clue what to do on my league's draft day/time. It gives you a place to do pre-draft rankings. Like 200 players. So in order to be ready for my league's draft, what do I do? simply put those 200 in the order I feel will be best? Like RB's first, then WR's, then QB's, then maybe TE's then defense guys? We're allowed a certain number for each position (only one D guy) and then 6 for the bench. Doesn't it make sense that EVERYONE in my league will simply put the highest rated players in their pre-draft rankings board and then let the chips fall where they may? I don't get how it is possible to use any real "strategy" since everyone starts from scratch. I can see how maybe later in the season that could change, as players are injured or whatever. We are supposed to have a draft on 9/2. So what do I need to show up online with??? simply that pre-draft rankings list? Sorry for the dumb questions, but I really have no way to ask my actual league-mates - plus to be honest I don't want them to realize how clueless I am. Although the guy who invited me does know. LOL, maybe he thinks I'm a "lamb to the slaughter". But really, at least in the beginning of the season, isn't it a "chance" thing based on who ends up getting to pick in what order? anyway, if this is too dumb to even respond to, please don't trouble yourself. I guess I'll "get it" once it starts. But I don't want to log on for my live draft and be unprepared. So thank in advance if anyone wants to help me out. Question: is the AK league one of the NFL.com leagues? I know there are others, like ESPN's and also Yahoo's..... TIA! PS: also how come some guys don't appear in the 200 players it shows in the list? Like Darrell Revis I can understand, he's holding out...may not play etc (ass!) but like why don't I see Ray Lewis (Ravens) on there. How is it determined if a certain player is available for Fantasy Football? (besides whether they actually play)????
