Let's all go about our fantasy business as if we are expecting this season to happen.

My first question deals with league expansion.

I am in a keeper league, and we are adding two teams. What is the most fair way to add two expansion teams?

1). We all keep our 3 keepers and those teams pick 3 off of the scrap heap?
2) We all start from scratch?
3) We all keep 1, the two new teams pick any player from another team. We pick #2, they pick anyone they want and so on.
4) Everyone keeps 2, the expansion teams pick one each. The team that they pick from gets to keep their third before another player is taken from their roster. That continues until those teams have 3 guys.

My idea is #4.

Maybe limit keepers to a QB or TE, and one WR, and one RB? That would leave enough talent in the pool for new members to not feel slighted.

I have a Twitter question:

If I reply to someone looking for FF advice, can my leaguemates or anyone else who is following me see that question?

I know @FiveThous follows me. Can you see every dumb reply I make?

They used to have to follow that same person you were asking, I'm not sure if that is sill the case.

One of my dynasty leagues started our draft yesterday and we're currently nearing the end of round three. I didn't have my first and second rounder (the 1.10 and 2.10), as I traded them last summer for Chris Godwin.

Now that those picks are in, they ended up being Ke'Shawn Vaughn and Denzel Mims, although Swift was also on the board with that first pick. I would definitely do that trade all over again.

My first pick at 3.10 is coming up next, which means I'm getting either Joshua Kelley or Adam Trautman. Hoping for Kelley but he's probably the next pick.

Finally pulled the trigger on a DeAndre Hopkins trade in my money dynasty league. I'm coming off a championship and wanted to add some youth, so I traded Hopkins for the 1.06, the 1.08, and a 2021 2nd rounder. I figured the chance to add either Lamb or one of the top five backs if one of them falls plus another top-tier WR prospect was tough to pass up. I've also got the 1.02, which is going to be Jonathan Taylor, and the 1.10.

I love this draft for fantasy purposes. Hoping to walk away with Taylor, Lamb, whoever is the BPA at 1.08, and Ruggs at the 1.10. That's probably a reach for Ruggs, but I view him as a lottery ticket. I'm deep at WR, so might as well grab the biggest boom/bust guy in the draft and hope he hits.

I've never done an auction, if anyone has an opening or is interested in joining one, let me know, I'm sure I can set one up.

I'm planning on launching a money dynasty league later this summer and may do an auction draft if we decide to do a league with contracts.

I want to get the RCF dynasty draft going later this month first though before setting the RBF pay league up.

My money league dynasty rookie draft is going on right now. My first round was amazing.

1.02 - Jonathan Taylor
1.06 - Cam Akers
1.08 - Jerry Jeudy
1.10 - Henry Ruggs

Justin Jefferson was the safer choice at ten but I am deep at receiver so I went for the ceiling play.

Just picked at 3.1 and took Denzel Mims.

Don't pick again until the end of the 6th lol.

ETA: Adding the rest of my draft. Keep in mind this is a ten team league with three IDP starters, and we have to cut at least seven of our 30-35 players prior to the draft, so that means a lot of useful vets end up in the draft and can push rookies down.

6.10 - Jalen Hurts
7.10 - Tyler Johnson
8.09 - Ian Thomas
9.08 - Greg Zuerlein
10.08 - Dwayne Haskins

We have a five player taxi squad to stash rookies, so I grabbed Hurts and Tyler Johnson as two stash picks. No idea why Ian Thomas was still there in the 8th so went ahead and drafted him. The last two picks were because this league has a kicker for some reason and I don't use a keeper on kickers because that's stupid and because I wanted a third starting QB on my roster. Hurts will be on taxi all season and that leaves me currently with just Rodgers and Mayfield. No idea if Haskins has it or not, but worth a flyer. Not much else on the board at that point.

Also note that we draft until rosters are filled, so the more players you cut, the more picks you have.

Anybody follow the Scott Fish Bowl? It's a giant tourney with all the top FF "experts".

It's an interesting scoring system. Points for completions and incompletions....TE premium. The strategy is interesting to see play out. Lots of QBs going early with the superflex.

Could have some major fantasy implications. I was trying to trade David Johnson in my main dynasty league but might hold off now to keep the depth.

They change the scoring every year I believe.

We need to start our own, we all have our own network of friends, how do we get something similar going?
