    I'd say by that rationale you are better off waiting until the end to take a keeper?

    Now that Mikk has taken Fraser Forster the worst you are going to end up with is the 9th best goalkeeper, whereas if you leave yourself short of D, M, or F you could be ending up with the 50th or 60th best in those positions...

    Interesting the tactics everyone has. Also curious if you felt you were taking Zaha a round or two early but it was by necessity because you thought he wouldn't survive until the draft got back to you again? That was my rationale with Felipe Anderson.

    Gotta love it when Nash drafts the same Newcastle player twice. That is a first i think.

    Well, as his new rule states - NO EDITING.

    Yeahh, I was happy with 7 as I only have the 3 strikers so I will probs use a 352 a fair bit this season.

    Antonio as the 8th means i have one too many, so the weakest of those mids will be dropped for a D early in the season no doubt.

    Best Draft: If Courtois and Ramsey stay then Ed's top 8 picks look very strong. Shock good as well, and obviously I like my own.

    Worst Draft: Hard to look past Mikk, although I don't much like the look of Nash's either. To be fair, I think this has also been my worst draft since my first season.

    Best Draft Pick: Syko with Bernardo Silva in the 7th looks great, I got Sterling at a similar stage last year and he killed it. Honourable mention to Zero with Josh king in the 8th who i think is in for a good season.

    Worst Draft Pick: Mikk with Fraser Forster in the 5th, although Ed taking Courtois in the 4th could be a shocker if he leaves.

    Best draft: Sykotic, especially if Martial moves to Spurs or something. Pinched Maddison and Elyounoussi when I was eyeing them up. Yarmolenko at number 13 could be amazing. Very balanced team with defenders that will get goals and assists for days. Simmos is very good and could storm the league if Emery gets Arsenal clicking. Ed's very good though has a dodgy keeper situation.

    Worst draft: I think all teams look very even. For all we might laugh at Mikks three keepers, he's got a front three that will win him matches on their own. Think Nash may struggle for goals if Sterling becomes a rotation risk because of Pep.

    Best draft pick: Yarmolenko at number 13 could be inspired. If Kolasinac becomes first choice then he is incredible value at number 16 for Nash. Hoilett at number 14 too though Order will have to sub another forward (probably Wood) to get him in the team

    Worst draft pick: Got to be Fraser Forster at number 4. Honourable mention to Matt Ritchie a second time.

    My draft: pretty happy. Got the two forwards I really wanted based on my draft position. Only problem is neither are the top points scorers in their team (Lukaku and Salah instead). Arnautovic will be striker in a very attacking team with a great supporting cast so my front three are undroppable. Ederson is a nice reliable set and forget keeper who may even nab me an assist. Defence has some strong nailed on top 6 defenders, especially if Bailly stays injury free. Other defenders are very attacking fullbacks. My mid is pretty mediocre right the way through. But I've got enough variation that I should be able to rotate them depending on fixtures.

    Not only did Mikk draft Fraser Forster at 4, he also drafted 2 more GKs and N'Golo 'Best In The World But Useless In Fantrax' Kante.

    For me hoping Martial and Ings get moves whilst Zaha could be in for an upgrade.

    Hoping Bernardo can dislodge David in the City side. And maybe Kompany's standing as captain gets him some game time.

    Shock joining this league is a c**t as he picked a lot of the sleepers that I wanted like Ricardo Pereira, Sessegnon and Fredericks (who I nearly picked over Smith)

    Haha the feeling is mutual after you took Madisson. I was leaving him for a round thinking nobody would get him.

    Ricardo Pereira is my favourite pick. Apparently he's played as winger at times during pre season.

    I'll drop the cunt that used to play in goal for Chelsea.

    Think we've let everyone have their say, looks like no-one else wants in. Draft in an hour?
