    Not sure how I feel about assigning a waiver pick. People have proceeded all offseason as though the top waiver picks have a distinct value based on the 1-2 guys projected to be available. I don't think you can mess with that now by giving a pick at he very top of the waiver draft. To me, 20b MiLB is the solution that provides the most value while stepping on the fewest number of toes.

    20 B sounds right in the 20 team leagues and a mid first in LoD, I know you're not there anymore...

    yeah, may as well leave it open for the day in case Hurl or KK want to chime in, but it seems like 20B is the front runner.

    Seems like even more of a reason for Breaking Blue to become a dynasty league ranking site. Would be a lot easier to project value of the dead.

    I still believe that 41 is the number for this.

    Yeah, not that I want to get into a ranking exercise, but if you had all players ranked as keepers, you could tie compensation to that. For ex, a Top 20 player gets two 1st round picks, a Top 100 player gets a 20B, a Top 200 player gets a 40B, beyond that you get nothing. Of course, we'd never be able to agree on rankings anyway, so I guess it's moot.

    Food for thought... if the compensation in the LoD ends up as a sandwich pick, the compensation here should be 40 B, etc... in that league he has much more value, as you guys know.

    *feels shitty, talking about this*

    DDL is the precedent setter of the leagues.

    Meh, let each league do their own thing. I don't think we have to reconcile DDL compensation with LoD compensation. Also, I'm tired of discussing the value of a guy who died.

    I don't like the idea of tying what the DDL does to what LOD does.

    Looks like early Feb based on the dates from PB's posts.
    We could put a note about draft dates in the rules section of the doc to avoid having to figure this out every year

    I think we normally do cutdown deadline for a Sunday night, second or third week of Feb. Waiver draft starts like 24-48 hours after that deadline.

    It typically just depends on when I and other admins have time, since there is some manual work with roster input.

    I really don't care much about the difference between 20B and 40B. Precedent suggests that the likelihood of hitting on the pick is the same. If push comes to shove, I'd guess I'd go with 40B just to leave some wiggle room if this were to happen to someone slightly better than Ventura but still not elite (which isn't exactly a huge concern either).
