I'm seriously considering removing my own team from my own league. :lol:
You know it’s bad if I’ve overtaken you. As admin, can you sabotage mav somehow?
Sabotage won't be needed. If you stack teams up we're quite equivalent, I've just been fortunate with JBG, Pererya and Doherty in particular. My lead has opened up week on week off the backs of performances from those three, but this format of the game is volatile and they won't keep scoring.

Any one of us can be completely destroyed by injuries too, the KDB situation for example if that happens to Vardy or Mitrovic I'll be vulnerable.

I should beat him in our draft H2H at least unless schurrle goes crazy which writing this isn’t too unrealistic against Huddersfield!

Good thing you can't take 40-point hits in Draft, eh? :wink:

Sorry dude, I know it's probably way too soon but I couldn't resist! :lol: :P

I see stemania is my latest challenger, it's really close between most of the top 6 or 7 so one good week moves a secret tournament team right up the rankings!

It's fun for me though! I wonder if I can extend my lead to 200 by GW18.... :lol:

Tbf I nearly got relegated in the draft divisional and my "FISO first draft" draft was a disgrace so I wanna enjoy leading this one I think!

I'm starting the opposite of whatever a fightback is. A giveupforward. :lol:

You're in a bunch of teams separated by 30 or so points though one good week and you'll be happier with your giveupforward.

:lol: I'm actually leading three of my 4 draft leagues at the moment, the one I'm not leading is a H2H league in which my team is the top FPL points scorer. 8-)

Unbeknownst to him, I've been deviously hatching a new year plan to unlock Mav's draft secrets. After days studying hard by candlelight, with a thousand papercuts from the endless fingering of old dusty texts, a picture is starting to come in to focus in my mind. Once the dark magic is fully known to me, I shall share my visions with the whole league, nullifying his mystical advantage. We shall then all ferociously hunt him down. Until...mwah ha ha ha ha....one day. One day, we might then finish within 3 or even 4 hundred points of first place. With a little luck. :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

Anyone else think 10 players dries up the talent pool a touch too much for draft over a full season?

Keen for more draft next year and a full season version but maybe we have 2 divisions of 6-8?

It certainly thins out the player pool and makes fielding a competitive 11 every week a challenge, but I have to say that it's a challenge I very much enjoy. There are still plenty of bargains to be found if you're looking hard enough - this weekend for example I drafted in Duffy (9), Ruddy (7), Deulofeu (6) and Montoya (6), and last GW I picked up Mkhitaryan (16) and Ward-Prowse (9). I enjoy this 'punty' aspect of the game.

In fact, I've managed to haul myself up to the lofty heights of 2nd with some good scores over the past few weeks. Mav3rick must be scared, I've closed the gap between us to a mere 199 points. :lol:

221 points now. It was a nice imaginary title race while it lasted. :lol:

My punts this week were less successful than previous ones. Dann (0), Schlupp (1), Snodgrass (2), Wijnaldum (2), Adam Smith (1, and injured) all contributed significantly less than I (perhaps foolishly) expected.

Is anyone else still playing with a level of interest? :) I'm keen to have another bash at it next year despite the embarrassingly one-sided nature of this year's event (I bet Mav has ruined every party he's ever been to as well :wink:).

My team is going to score 200 points this gameweek, having given you all false hope throughout the entire season (ending up 2nd as 1st is just not realistic anymore).
