Welcome everyone to a new era in MacRumors NFL Fantasy Football. The past few years interest in joining our leagues grew and we expanded to 3 total leagues. Well, this year we had some folks drop out and thus we are combining our Hardware and Mac OS leagues.

It is my pleasure to introduce you to the new RDF League.

Not for the faint of heart, this league will have 12 players so you better be on top of your game if you want to make the playoffs this year.

Joining us for the festivities during the 2017 season will be as follows:

1. @Fthree
2. @rhett7660
3. @The.316
4. @gibbz
5. @einmusiker
6. @creator2456
7. @rockyroad55
8. @Peace
9. @Dandaman
10. @Dontazemebro
11. @simon48
12. @mscriv

I am truly sorry about how last minute things have been leading up to this season, but we have to draft in the next two days. My plan is to draft tomorrow night at 7pm US Central time. We really don't have a lot of wiggle room so I hope the majority of folks can make it then or can at least set up their auto settings.

If you have any questions please post here as this will be the official thread for the league. Some of you will have received an email from ESPN to join this new league and some of you are already joined. If you did receive a new email then please join ASAP because we can't draft until everyone has joined the league.

Very Important!

Per ESPN, the draft room we have scheduled will be cancelled if all of our members have not joined the league at least an hour prior to draft time.

So, everyone must join the league before 6pm US Central time tomorrow.

The following folks still need to join:


@rhett7660
@The.316
@gibbz
@einmusiker

Will definitely be present for the early rounds, but might need to get out early and let the computer take the later picks for me.

Okay so we just have @The.316 left to join the new league.
Is the iOS league still a go, I am still seeing it show up within ESPN?

Also, within the espn website, how do I ensure my autopicks are set? I might be late to the draft or miss it all together, but I want to make sure my picks are sets to auto? Is there a check mark that needs to be entered somewhere?

The Mac OS league was activated and so it will still show up, but we are not going to be using it. I'll see if I can close it or something like that.

As far as auto picks go, you can go into your team page, the tab that say "My Team" and under your team name you will see two links. One says "Edit Pre-Draft Player Rankings" and the other says "Edit Auto Pick Strategy". Using these links you can set up your auto draft strategy. When the draft actually starts you will be set to manual or auto based on whether you are logged in to draft or are absent.


Everyone is logged in to the league so we are good to go.

Thanks for putting this together. Do you know when the draft order will be determined?
Due to my crazy life right now I'm letting ESPN randomize the draft order. It will be set 1 hour before the draft starts and available to view by going into the draft room at that time.

Great draft everyone. It's going to be a fun year. I haven't played in a 12 team league in a while and I'm looking forward to the challenge.

I still have to update the divisions and schedules so just know that everything you see now is going to change.

Draft was decent. As usual mscriv popped a few players ahead of me like Mariota, which was supposed to be my steal late in the draft
Yep, the same thing happened to me with a few picks. Man, it's hard being on the end of a 12 team draft, waiting 20 picks is a long time. I was really trying to plan ahead and anticipate what others needs were but it never goes quite how you want it to.

Autopick doesn't make it any easier.
Having 12th and then 1st didn't help much either.

I cant figure out why nobody took Brady before me.
