Draft order is set! Begin trading.

UPDATE: The draft order video is on YouTube:

Matt and I picked the draft order last night. It was randomly drawn from a hat, and I have a video of the event. I'll get that up tonight, if possible. Here are the results:

  1. Matt Horvath
  2. Greg Bartley
  3. Will Fleisher
  4. Chris Neal
  5. Mike Weinstein
  6. Chris Weisel
  7. Matt Sikich
  8. Kevin Albertson
  9. Kevin Garvey
  10. Ryan Horvath
  11. Chad Runtz
  12. Scott Hodel

You can trade draft picks. Here is how that works:


Custom League can make trades involving draft picks. These types of transactions can only take place prior to the Keeper deadline for Custom Leagues. Trades can be made involving exchanges of draft picks only, or trading some combination of player(s) and draft picks. It is important to note that you are trading for an owner's pick in a given round, and there is no assurance that the overall slot will remain the same.

For example, you trade your first round pick (2nd overall for Team A) for another owner's first round pick (5th overall for Team B) and fifth round pick (Team B) . Following processing of the trade, if the League Manager manipulates the initial draft order and Team B now has the 8th pick overall, that is the pick that you will end up receiving (not the 5th overall pick). It would then be your responsibility to discuss this matter with your League Manager.

If you trade and receive a net total of draft picks greater than the number of rounds in the draft (example: you have 12 draft picks after trading and the draft runs for 10 rounds), then the draft will end and you will not acquire any players following the pick in which you complete your roster maximum. For this example, after 10 picks (no matter what round) your draft would end. You will be able to watch the draft process but when it reaches your selection you will be skipped over and no players will be added to your team.

Matt has stated he wants to trade away his number 1 pick. So make a good offer.
