Is the boredom of no football on Sundays and endless conjecture about free agents, pro days, and draft picks getting on your nerves? Is the empty hole that is filled with fantasy football normally slowly eating away at your soul? Well my friend, the All Green Bay Packers staff would like to invite you to join us and play Play The Draft!
For those of you that don’t know, every year we host a fantasy football league where we pit the ALLGBP.com writers against with readers of the website. We’re going to do something similar during the offseason with Play The Draft. (It’s FREE to play)
Essentially the game works like stock trading, but instead of stocks of companies you trade stocks of prospects looking to be drafted. Everyone who plays will be given a same amount of “money” and then allowed to buy stocks of players they think will be drafted well and after the draft, each player will be “sold” at a value based on their draft selection.
You can also buy and sell players at any time and take a profit or cut your losses. The value of a player’s stock will rise and fall based on real world news; so if a player has a great pro day his stock will rise or if he gets arrested, his value will fall (though he might become good value if it doesn’t effect his draft status).
There are 10 open spots for readers. If you’d like to play against us, click on “CONTACT US” at the top of the page and send us a short message with your name and email address.
But wait, that’s not all; not only will you get bragging rights as the resident Draftnik, but we’ll also throw in an ALLGBP.com t-shirt and an autographed 8×10 photo of Packers legend Fuzzy Thurston – courtesy of Waukesha Sports Cards.
