This is the fastest we've ever completed a draft.

I input the draft in Yahoo. Please look at your team to see if it's correct:

Let's revisit this. I'd like to get a few more votes on the playoff format before changing it.

I like the current setting. I understand it would value luck more than skills, but it does take some kind of skills to adjust your team accordingly for the playoff run.

This is not a keeper league, so it's not too hard to part ways with your inactive players. Plus, you're given 50 moves for the entire season, which means that becomes part of your strategy how you manage your team throughout. You could stream against your opponent in the playoffs if you've saved your add/drops until the end.

So far:
Playoffs @ week 22, 23, 24: KobeShow, Pork
Playoffs @ week 21, 22, 13: Vienna, Puck, Houston

One of the small reasons I picked Westbrook was for the likely level of competitive play that OKC would be pushing their star players towards during the final weeks, so I could count on production from my #1 pick during the playoffs instead of getting popoviched.

With that said, I think it will be more realistic to try moving the fantasy playoffs up a week so we are relying more on our draft picks, that should keep me from dipping into the free agent pool to grab the hot hand while stars get NBA playoff rest like I usually do during the final week.

Doesn't matter to me. But I do think if we are gonna change things, we should have done it before the draft.

I really like your punt points team. Going Paul, Ibaka, Batum as your first 3 is just about the best case scenario for that build. Well done, good sir...well done.

In fact, you've inspired me to try a punt points team in my money league. Looks like a fun team to draft. It's an auction draft so I should be able to pull it off.

That said, I like my team too, and plan on kickin' your ass :)

Good luck to everyone this year!

Thanks man!
I'm looking forward to our matchup too, should be interesting and could come down to the details...

If you want any advice on the punt points strategy, just PM me. I think I have some nice expirience by now after drafting several teams like this over the last two years.

I think the majority had spoken. We'll move the playoffs up a week. I think we can still make this change before the start of the season.

That's fine with me. I had to comment on your analysis of my team and the center position. Didn't say it before but you really pulled the rug from me on the Anthony Davis pick. !+) I thought he would go high & I was all set to take him with the very next pick. When you took him I didn't know what to do & ending up choosing Deron Williams. Never saw him going with the 1st pick of the 2nd round. But I do think you did well. He should tear it up this year. I wanted him because I believe that & I'm a huge University of Kentucky fan. ;-D
