Greene family’s 2017-2018 Fantasy WWE draft & league

24 Apr

So the Greene boys are at it again.  Time for the 3rd annual Fantasy WWE draft and league.  Dad took 2015-2016 going away.  Adam ran away with the crown in 2016-2017 beating Dad by 185 points.  Josh is hoping to not finish 3rd for the third straight year and looks to have had his best draft so far.  By the looks of it, this could be the closest year and all 3 rosters are solid.  Adam’s has a lot of current champions as of April 24th, while Dad has a lot of contenders for those titles.

The first 25 rounds were drafted April 24.  Josh had the first pick since he finished 3rd this past year.  It was a snake draft so Adam had picks 3 & 4 overall, and then snaked back with Josh for picks 6 & 7 overall, and so on.  Our point scoring system is listed below the draft results.  We plan on having another 5 round expansion draft later this week, possible expansion rounds with the Cruiserweight Classic and Women’s tournament participants (who are undrafted), and then two other possible expansion drafts later in June and February.

Live event attended in person – same scores apply if you own wrestlers on the card. It’s our incentive to attend live events.

*If a champion successfully retains title with a win on a PPV, he/she gets only the points for retaining, not the additional 5 for a PPV win. Example, Authors of Pain win and retain at NXT Takeover, they get 8, not 13. If they lose by countout or DQ but retains titles, they still get 8 points. The team that wins by countout or DQ does get 5.

Our 2017-2018 scoring begins with tonight’s RAW and tomorrow’s Smackdown Live, but we expect most initial points to come from this weekend’s PAYBACK pay-per-view.  Would love to hear comments, suggestions, further thoughts.  We’d also like to know who won the draft.  Which team looks to be the strongest according to the draft and our point scoring system.
