Fantasy/CasinoPlanet>Alternate Reality Game 1: Chiefs
Rain Man 12:15 AM 03-22-2009
The original post is below in blue, but let's summarize it here based on the past few years.

1. If you're a new player, start with the current Chiefs roster. If you've been playing for a while you'll have your own evolved roster.

2. You can add any free agent that the Chiefs add.

3. You lose any free agent that the Chiefs lose, but only if they were on the Chiefs' roster when you began playing.

4. You can accept or reject any trade the Chiefs make as long as any Chiefs player involved is currently on your roster.

5. You do not get players that the Chiefs draft. You draft your own players, using the same draft picks that the Chiefs have.

6. You can trade down ONE time before the draft or after the draft. If you trade down before the draft, you get up to full value for your pick according to this chart: http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...t-trade-chart/. If you trade down after the draft, the value of the picks you trade must be discounted by at least 35 percent. Any trade down must involve only the picks of one NFL team, and you cannot receive more than two picks more than you give up. (In other words, if you trade away one draft pick you cannot pick up more than three in return.) The other team's picks also must be picks that they held prior to the opening of the draft.

6. You can trade up ONE time before the draft or after the draft. If you trade up before the draft, you get up to full value for your pick according to this chart: http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...t-trade-chart/. If you trade up after the draft, the value of the picks you trade must be discounted by at least 15 percent. Any trade up must involve only the picks of one NFL team. The other team's picks also must be picks that they held prior to the opening of the draft.

7. By the beginning of the season, you must reduce your total roster to include only 53 players.



Original post: You can ignore this now.


Spoiler!

Added Rules and Reminders:

1. Remember that you can draft undrafted rookies, so you don't have to select only guys who were drafted.

2. Anyone can change their rookie draft selections at any time, UNTIL we reach ten days before training camp. At that point, all picks will be locked in.

3. Each team can do ONE trade of draft picks if they like, using this chart:http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...t-trade-chart/. However, if you're trading up, you have to pay 15 percent more than the stated value of the picks you're obtaining. If you're trading down, your pick's value will be discounted by 35 percent.

For example, if you want to trade up from the 20th pick in the 1st to the 10th pick, you can see from the chart that the 20th pick is worth 850 points. The 10th pick is normally 1,300 points, but by paying 15 percent more, it will cost you 1.15*1,300, or 1,495 points.

For example, if you want to trade down from the 20th pick in the 1st and pick up the 10th pick in the 2nd, your 20th pick would normally be worth 850 points, but in this game it will be worth 553 points. The 10th pick in the 2nd is worth 480 points, so you can get 73 points back from the other team.

You can do only ONE draft-pick trade up and ONE draft-pick trade down, and in each case you can only trade with one other team for their own picks. (In other words, you couldn't take the 73 points in the above example from a third team.)

35 players is going to mean that there is going to be a lot of scrubs playing if there are injuries. For instance....35 players equals out to be.

QB - 2
RB - 2
WR - 4
TE - 1
LT - 1
LG - 1
C - 1
RG - 1
RT - 1

LE - 2
NT - 2
RE - 2
LOLB - 2
LILB - 1
RILB - 1
ROLB - 2
CB - 4
FS - 2
SS - 1
K - 1
P - 1


Is that really enough? I'm thinking that we should cut it down to 8-10 scrubs.....or maybe less.

Rainman - can you please set a "LOCK" date on these? That would allow early birds to make changes up until the date you set, and ensure that we identify the teams that flake out well ahead of training camp.

Thanks for organizing this. Should be a lot of fun.

What do you mean by "LOCK" date?

It's a deadline for picking your draft decisions. Early birds (like the ones who have responded so far) aren't "locked" until that date, and anybody who fails to get their picks in prior to that date is disqualified.

Maybe one alternative to being disqualified would be they are forced to go with status quo Chiefs draft for that given year.

I like this. Maybe we lock as of 10 days before Chiefs training camp starts.

And I like the status quo draft thing for late arrivals, too. Let's do it.

Two thoughts:

1. Remember that you can draft undrafted rookies, so you don't have to select only guys who were drafted.

2. Just a thought: what would people think about this option? Using the NFL draft value chart, you can trade up or down by paying a premium of 15 percent. In other words, you can trade up if you pay at least 15 percent more than the stated value of the draft, or you can trade down if you accept 85 percent of the stated value of the picks you're losing. And any trades have to be with one other NFL team, not a combination. If we did this, I think we'd have to not allow trades using future year picks since there's no third-party table of those values. If people like it, let's do it, but otherwise I'm not hard-core about it.

This is a good point.

My initial thinking was that I didn't want people to just end up with the final 53 other than their draft picks, so I wanted to go lower. I thought maybe we could ramp the number up each year as the teams start to diverge from each other.

Should we start at 40?

And I guess maybe it doesn't make a lot of difference now that I think about it, because since we're all picking from a pretty similar pool (other than draft picks), most of us would have the same scrubs anyway.

What do others think?
