    So do we want to set a date for the draft to start so we know everyone is locked in and ready to go? I know there's still a chunk that we haven't at least seen on the board, not sure if you guys have heard from them or not.

    The only one who hasn't been on the board recently, or responded otherwise, is Adamperez. I'd say lets set a date, and then send out a group PM asking everyone to respond. That should send it to everyone's email as well, so they are almost certain to see it.

    Draft month is here!!! Wooohoo!! Let me know if you want to shake things up and make some trades! Willing to do some deals to get to the top of the draft, or smaller ones to get back into the 2nd. Let me know if you see something that works for ya.

    Just checking in, as I haven't been on any of the Boards for the last couple of weeks. Hope everyone is safe and well. Looking forward to focusing on the NFL and some FF now!

    Good to hear from you! I think that we're all even more eager than usual.

    I've spent most of the last two weeks immersed in Premier League football (soccer). Getting used to watching the teams playing in empty stadia - it's quite a change to be able to hear the players talking to each other, and the coaches shouting instructions.

    One thing that is becoming clear (in soccer) is that without the influence of the crowd, the better team normally wins. Those 'clutch' moments are easier for players to handle, especially away from home.

    I bet. It’s definitely gonna be weird without fans or even with half stadiums like I’m seeing a lot of recently suggested.

    I made up my big board yesterday. Not confident at all about who will be available when I pick in the second round, lol.

    checkin’ in. My mother’s had an unidentifiable illness + pneumonia for the past few months so my attention’s been on that. Good to go now though.

    Got some trade offers to review.

    Sorry to hear about your mom bro. I had pneumonia almost 5 years ago (Nov of 15) and there’s 2 things everyone should know about pneumonia..:
    1. That **** is no joke. I never slept so much in my life. I took more sick days in 3 weeks then in 15 years with the same company. When your parents yelled at you about catching pneumonia growing up, this is why.
    2. Hope you like tea and crackers cause that’s all you’ll have an appetite for. Seriously, I dropped more then 30lbs in those 3 weeks.

    Not a fun experience.

    Damn. I’ve had walking pneumonia before and even that was a bastard. Would hate to experience the real deal!

    I’ve had Chronic Epstein Barr Virus though which is basically Mono but worse and lasts at least 6 months. 6+ months of debilitating fatigue. Just a complete collapse of all mental/physical energy & motivation. Impossible to hold down a job. Couldn’t get out of bed in the morning [or early afternoon]. Had to take 2-3 naps throughout the day [even at work I couldn’t fight the urge]. Night sweats got so bad that my bed sheets literally felt like they were just pulled from the washing machine prior to spin cycle. Not even gonna get into what happened when one of the B-12 shots got infected, lol.

    Ugh that doesn’t sound fun at all. About as much fun as having a 103.5 fever for 3 weeks. :jump:

    I'm thinking Monday will be the draft start date. I'm trying to reach out to adamprez2003 for his whereabouts, I think he's the only one that we need a check-in from. We may want to have one potential replacement on-deck for him.

    Yeah, he was really active through the time of the Super Bowl, then hasn't been back since.

    Anyone interested in Jerrick McKinnon. Coming back to quite the opportunity and was the RB that SF wanted in the first place.

    He's 28, and missed the entire 2018 and 2019 seasons with serious injuries. His last game came in the 2017 playoffs as a member of the Vikings. At this point, I don't think its a guarantee he ever sees the field again. And he only has five career games with more than 50 yards rushing.

    They don’t have many other options and Kyle S has talked about how excited he is to get McKinnon back

    And I definitely admit, I'd much rather have had reports on McKinnon through training camps and all. It will be interesting to see. I wasn't looking for a 1st or anything, just curious if someone was wanting to take advantage of the opportunity he has.

    So I still haven't heard from Adam so I think there's two options we can go.

    A) Find a replacement and let them take over immediately.

    B) Have the team enter "auto-pilot mode" and we will draft BPA for each of the picks based on a pre-determined rankings website. I can set his line-up each week in hopes of him returning at some point. If he doesn't return during the season, we can look for a replacement owner in the 2021 offseason.

    If we know if anybody who would be interested in taking over his team, feel free to send him or her here.

    I would lean more toward having someone in the spot before the draft, but I know that may be hard at this point. I'm game either way.

    @adamprez2003 better speak up if you still want your team!!

    I PM’ed him yesterday. I’m ok with whatever is decided tho my concern is more for the person since I believe he is in Nyc and he hasn’t been active since feb which is around when corona started getting serious here.

    Yeah, that was my original thought as well. He doesn’t have much of a presence online outside of Dolphins message boards either. I do have his full name and I tried to track him down with no real luck.

    If we do need another GM, I've have a friend who'd be interested. He's a UK-based Fins fan. He's not on here yet - I'll ask him to sign up if he might fit the bill?

    Adam hasn't been on the board, even to lurk without posting, in five months, so at this point I think we have to assume he isn't going to be here for the fantasy league. My personal view is that anyone who's interested and willing to put the time in would be good to go. We've had quite a lot of turnover the last few years, including me joining.

    Hey guys!
    Thanks for the intro Simon. As already mentioned, if the slot for the vacant GM spot does stay open, then I'm definitey interested in coming on board. If not and you do hear from your mate at the eleventh hour, then no worries either.

    Be good to get the details for the league/team I'm potentially taking over at some point this weekend if possible to start planning ahead of Monday.

    Welcome bro. If you do join, this is the team you’d be inheriting...it’s well stocked at quarterback :chuckle::

    I Torture Puppies
    GM: adamprez2003
    Size: 26/25

    Roster:
    QB Derek Carr
    QB Kirk Cousins
    QB Josh Allen
    QB Mitchell Trubisky
    QB Ryan Tannehill
    QB Taysom Hill
    QB Easton Stick
    RB Frank Gore
    RB Melvin Gordon
    RB Dare Ogunbowale
    RB Montreal Hilliard
    RB Alexander Mattison
    RB Devine Ozigbo
    RB Trayveon WIlliams
    RB Wes Hills
    WR Kenny Golladay
    WR TY Hilton
    WR Cole Beasley
    WR Mecole Hardman
    WR Quincy Enunwa
    TE Greg Olsen
    TE Dawson Knox
    TE Nick Boyle
    PK Jason Myers
    PK Daniel Carlson
    DF Tennessee

    The draft order for this years rookie draft is listed on the first page as well along with the rest of the rosters. GridIronKing (GIK) is our league commissioner. You’ll notice also where is says 26/25 for your roster size which means you are one over the roster limit. We will be doing cuts at some point so think about who you’ll want to get rid of or try and trade.

    As a moderator, welcome to the board. Glad to have you!

    I'm not the admin of the league, but I see no issue with getting you set up. For the moment, you can look at the earlier pages of this thread, and see the team owned by Adamperez. That's the one that you'll be taking over.

    EDIT: I see that Boik posted slightly quicker than I did!

    Oh, and with seven quarterbacks on your roster, that might be an opprotunity to make a trade for another position that you're weaker at, or a draft pick!
