Draft Comment & League Schedule


Great turnout for the draft last night. At one point we actually had every person drafting live, which is a first for this league. I've begun to compile some initial offensive power rankings using ESPN and Football Outsider player projections. I started to look at the defensive players, but the projections vary so wildly from source to source that I decided against it. I'll take another look after Week 4 and see if the projections settle down enough for a power ranking to make sense. All the teams look good overall, and whether to start 2 QBs or 3 RBs seemed to be the largest build variant. I'll have the projections posted later tonight or tomorrow, but so far they've been surprisingly close.


I'm in the process of changing the league schedule on ESPN. So if you check your team, and you only play away games, don't freak out. This is only temporary. I'm setting the match-ups first, then setting home field advantage.


Our league has 2 divisions of 5 teams each. Divisions were determined randomly at the beginning of the season. The top two teams from each division advance to the playoffs. We will seed the playoffs manually by division. Top two overall records advance, with ties being broken by head to head record, then then division record, then regular season total points, then a fist fight. Our regular season runs for 14 weeks. Each team will play every team in their division both home and away. Each team will play four of the teams outside their division once, and one team outside their division twice (home and away). As always, call me with any questions, concerns or ideas for Christian-themed young-adult mystery literature.
