    And that's not an issue for me. One or two guys picking fast isn't a problem. Hell, ALL of you picking in 5 seconds isn't a problem for me since I've got 4 hours to make my selection. But thanks for the warning.

    I don't think it will take 50 days, being one round a day for 50 days. My guess is that the first 4 or 5 rounds go pretty fast. It's when we're digging for that 12th OF that it may slow down. If I had to take the over/under of 25 days, I'd take the under. Mostly because most of us are at home and bored to tears.
    What's the rumpus?

    In our slow league. It took us about 6 weeks. Thats with most people not being home and the holidays. So id bet about 30 days at the most

    I'm good to start Sunday and I'm good with 11 or 12, whichever is left for me

    I am still working but all from home so I'll have the draft open all day on my laptop!

    So let me see if I understand this, with a couple of hypothetical examples. Please correct me if any of these is wrong. For all of these, let's assume we are in round 2 on Tuesday. I check in before I go to bed at 10:30 pm (all times EDT), and I see that BERSMR has just picked and Kep is on the clock. He has until 10:30 AM Wednesday.

    1. Everyone before me takes 5 minutes. Circle picks at 10:45 PM. I have until 10:45 AM Wednesday.
    2. Everyone before me takes 3 hours and 59 minutes. Kep doesn't pick until 10:29 AM, Cigar doesn't pick until 2:28 PM, Circle picks at 6:27 PM. I then would have until 10:27 PM Wednesday.
    3. Kep takes 2 hours (8:30 AM), Cigar takes 1 hour (9:30 AM), Circle takes 1 minute (9:31 AM). I have until 1:31 PM Wednesday.

    Bottom line, if I check in every 3-1/2 hours during the time that the clock is running, I will never miss my turn. Right?

    Ill give you the very simple answer

    I set it up that you get email notifications from fantrax. So when you are up to pick. You will get an email from them. So you basically have to look at your email

    Here are the basic guidelines here

    15 team

    5 x 5

    HR
    R
    RBI
    SB
    AVG

    Win
    SV
    K
    ERA
    WHIP

    4 hr time limit.

    Clock runs from 7 AM eastern til 11 PM eastern. If your up at at 1045 PM. You will have 11 HRs and 45 Min to pick. See 8 hrs of dead clock time. So that will show long on the time clock then. If your up between 11 and 7. You can still make your picks of course


    Fantrax will email you when your up. So if you look at your email

    You will see when your up. You dont have to look at the fatrax site every few hrs to see if your up

    Once PB responds. I am PMing him now

    Ill set the draft order and the draft time and the draft room will be open. Ill post here when thats done

    Sorry for being a laggard. I just let Circle know that I'll take position #12, which leaves #11.

    In my defense I was very busy [reviews last four hours] sitting around the house doing nothing.

    In general it's always a good idea to have a few players lined up, just in case the draft snakes back sooner than expected or you do get busy doing something else. As a practical matter, though, the timing is pretty steady and you'll soon learn the timing of the guys on either side of you.

    Don't forget to set up your team name as it will appear in the draft. Still need a few to set up their teams fully.

    Larry, I don’t know if you have rules set up on site so I’ll ask here since everyone is active on this thread. What are roster requirements? I’m in a different draft & hold points league where the site automatically picks our best players performance & counts that towards the points. I don’t have to change lineup or nothing. This is different correct? We are obligated to put our lineup in weekly. 1 catcher or 2 catcher? Thanks

    One catcher?! It's an outrage. We should have to start three catchers. That would put the fear of God into people when you start to look at what's left down around catcher #40.

    (Spoiler alert: And with 50 players and a draft and hold you will have to look at what's left down around catcher #40. It's just a lot less terrifying this way because you can lie to yourself and say that he'll never actually play.)

    Sitting around doing nothing is a potentially dangerous act in the Age of Quarantine when there's vacuuming that needs doing and dirty dishes in the sink.
