    With that, we are done!

    As discussed, the plan is to adjust the 24-hour period and free agency will open on Wednesday at 7:00 am Pacific time. (Just under 41 hours from now....) Corresponding times for the various time zones were posted in the other thread.

    Congrats and thank you to everyone on an efficient draft, and good luck to anyone and everyone trying to get Pepe.

    I look forward to reading some thoughtful (and even some not-so-thoughtful) analysis of the draft, and where I and others went wrong (and right).

    Is this thread going to be used for the post-draft transfers or is there another thread that will be used? I’m assuming we can post the transfers on this thread but just wanted to confirm.

    As the draft is now over, I thought that I'd throw in a preliminary draft analysis here. These are tough for someone in the league to write, as everyone brings there own biases and projections to the table about which players are good value and which aren't, but it can still be interesting to hear what people think after it's all said and done, where things took unexpected turns, where things fell into place, etc. Before getting to any of that, it occurred to me that there is a more objective measure of which players were the "good" picks than relying on any one individual's views, and that is to trust the masses. And, the FPL site let's us see the % ownership for each player!

    When I last checked, there were 41 players total who had 10% or higher ownership. One player on the list wasn't on anyone's roster, which leaves 40, and if evenly distributed, that would mean 5 popular players each. But the distribution wasn't so even.

    1. Lokomotiv -- 9 players at +10%
    Maybe this number is inflated, as it is includes GK Button, who is being picked because he only costs 4.0 and not because of his projected points, but he's still the most popular 4.0 GK. Even setting Button aside, I was surprised at how many popular players landed on this squad, including 3 defenders - Alexander-Arnold, Walker, and Maguire - 2 mid tier mids - Zaha and Pulisic - the darling low priced mid (Dendoncker) and 2 forwards (Aguero and Rashford). This is a squad with a lot of names that our showing up on a lot of teams, with a superstar available for captaincy. The presence of a 4.5 mid, 4.0 def, and 4.0 gk may signal a lack of depth, but a solid group. Yikes!

    2. Aviators -- 7 players at +10%
    Hal's number may be inflated by having 2 gks (Pickford and Ryan) since only 1 can play at a time, but he's got 2 def on the list from the top 2 teams (van Dijk and Laporte) and 3 mids (Sterling, Sigursson, and Fraser). I see some weaknesses and it will be interesting to see how the forward line pans out with purchase prices of 6.0, 6.0, and 6.5, but there's nothing wrong with a 4-5-1 or 5-4-1 according to the major publications.

    3. Stormin Gunners -- 6 players at +10%
    All 6 are the real deal and cover all positions. 1 gk (Ederson), 1 def (Ake), 2 mids (Mane and Milivojevic), and 2 fwds (King and Jota). This is solid coverage that is approved by the masses, and while I'll try to leave my personal biases out, the addition of Lacazette was one of the picks were I personally groaned and thought he got it right.

    4. blechs dawgs -- 5 players at +10%
    As noted above, 5 was number for an even distribution, and seeing 5 sums it up as uniquely average. 1 def (Wan-Bissaka), 1 mid (Perez), and 3 fwds (Vardy, Firmino, and Jiminez). Time will tell if tripling up on the Foxes 2019-20 attack will pay off (I suppose that's quadrupling when I make Vardy my captain).

    5. Tip's Terriers -- 4 players at +10%
    1 def (Kelly) who may be more for price than points, and then 2 mids (B Silva and F Anderson) who need a first initial to be recognized and 1 fwd (Kane). Not winning the popularity contest, but I really liked the Martial pick in the 7th round were he was nabbed, and solid in goal even if not carrying a 10&er.

    6 (TIED). BunchofMuppets -- 3 players at +10%
    First three rounds were all +10% -- 1 mid (Salah), 1 fwd (Wilson), and 1 gk (Allison). But then Sonabert took the road less traveled and followed his own draft sheet. Or, had no sheet. Of course, reality is that placing the "C" on Salah every week will be a simple strategy that will pay off and allowed the opportunity to take some chances.

    6 (TIED). Morning Glory -- 3 players at +10%
    1 GK (DeGea), 1 def (Robertson), and 1 fwd (Aubameyang). These were rounds 1, 2, and 4. There were opportunities to grab several of the names mentioned on other rosters above, but the manager is insistent that he knows better than the masses... :)

    6 (TIED). Kicking & Screaming -- 3 players at +10%
    1 def (Digne) and 2 mids (de Bruyne and Maddison). Interestingly, the first 9 picks were +10%, and it was K&S with the #10 pick of Ericksen who grabbed the first player below that magic figure. Not sure if they were banking on him staying with his current club or a transfer coming through, but the transfer clock is ticking and we'll find out soon. I obviously like the Maddison pick as I'm expecting the Foxes to score at will this season and I'll be happy to share a few with others on the team, and I was literally kicking and screaming when he took De Bruyne and Joe Gomez right before me in rounds 1 and 7, so it will be interesting to see how this one pans out. Perhaps not the most popular according to the masses, but this was the team that seemed to be working the closest off of my draft sheet.

    What say each of you? Which pick right one or two before you was the most painful?
