    I signed up using the links in this post, but I’m only seeing 2 drafts available: 1 Rotogrinders, and 1 public…

    am I missing something? The way it reads above I thought I’d have 4 drafts available…

    any help is much appreciated!

    cheers!

    @bassic – you can click on those to draft (twice each) for a total of four drafts

    my question – anyone ever got a top 3 pick? It seems I’m always drafting in the bottom 3 – the biggest gripe is it is hard to pick different players if you wanted to diversify your teams

    When I draft, I see runs here and there. It’s all math though. We look at the randomization every week and it is evenly split between the draft positions… about 10% of Fans draft from each draft position every week.

  • rpchew5

    I have had picks in the top 3 a few times cb35. Although you are correct that no matter where I draft I seam to end up with similar teams

  • 2incher

    According to their scoring, FTs are worth 1.5?

  • Ga11y

    So I am currently at 309 with rondo in my lineup and Klay thompson still going.. will win the $20 but could have won more had i checked.. oh welL!

  • clarnzz

    I got rocked, one team was dead in the water with Jamal Crawford and A’mare. Other had LMA and Gerald Green, Ugh!

  • elmore0631

  • lance1214

    So is there a place I can see where I landed in the RG global? That list is different from Skyllzone global contest correct?

    This is a bit confusing. Are we looking at the RG standings or global standings when we click on the global link?

  • indyblitz

    if it is the rotogrinders contest then it is showing the rotogrinders global. since you was able to get into 2 of each 2 are showing the rotogrinders global and 2 showing the regular global.

  • indyblitz

    Here is a good one. I finished 10th in the rotogrinders global but did not finish 1st in the league it was in.

    Crazy! You don’t see that happen often.

  • SKYLLZONE

    Congratulations to this week’s RotoGrinders winner, killab4862. An extra $220 (global plus league). And there were hundreds of other winners – congrats!

    The new users that signed up this week all should have 2000 SKYLL Points on their accounts by now. These points can be used this week, next week, etc.

  • elmore0631

    Just wondering as I didn’t have an SKYLL Points in my account.

    Thanks man! :)

  • Hansc27

    Have been trying to get 65 dollars that I won from them since October. Have emailed them 3 times and received one reply saying they’d check into it. That was a month and a half ago.

  • Hansc27

    My check finally came. No points for prompt customer service, but at least it was fulfilled eventually.
