Wouldn't it make more sense to put in picks for the missing teams now. Jbailey looks completely absent. Wedhead is more of a puzzle, as he posted one pick and then disappeared. I'd run a 2nd team if it could gather some players now. I'd just see it as a challenge. Maybe someone else could take another, if necessary. Whatever the case, (draft for them, put the draft on hold, let them stink and enter later) this needs to be resolved by the commissioner immediately, so we all can just worry about our own teams and have fun with this.
Wrote the above without seeing your post bbonds. I did not know 18 is a possibility.
