Im in the same boat. We have a league with 7 current members drafting in 5 days and we need at least one more. Mostly made up of people from the old espn board (jde, wildmex, azz316, me).

The buy in is $50 and the amount paid out is typically $100 for first place in the regular season, $100 for second place overall and the rest to the winner.

If youre interested let me know. We've been playing baseball and football with this same core group for about 8 years now and its more of a friendly league thats competitive than a "win at all costs" type thing.

funny you say that...the jets were my second to last pick, I didn't have a DEF yet and I was tired as hell and just wanted to pick something. The first thing I did once rosters were set was pick up Jacksonville instead.

Is Bowe a future keeper pick? He may take a few years to develop.

Yeah, definitely keeper pick. Usually WR are not good keepers, but I figured what the heck. Late rounds are pretty useless anyway in a 12 team draft.
