NBFL Season 26 Draft Grades + Recap

With the recent NBFL draft completed, it's time to take a step back...and loudly judge how everyone did. Eight teams started with brand new rosters, while a select few may have thought they were just a piece away from a Super Bowl run. And of course there are the rest of the teams in the middle.

Who landed the best steal? Who's aggressive move-up was too much? And who improved their team the most? The answer to these questions, and many more, awaits below:

As always, here's my rebuttal to KCT's draft pick discussion.

The original purpose of KCT was to give the Bronorks a much needed kick in the tail. We moved into their backyard and began arming. JR immediately saw this and fleetfooted ASAP. Speaking of which, when my orc Titanz left, the league immediately disbanded them and tossed them on the comp draft list. HOW THE #$^#$ HAS BRONORKS LEFT TWICE AND NOT SEEN THE SAME FATE?

Anyway I digress.

The second purpose of the team was an experiment. To see if Block guard mightyblow claw prehensile tail is the ultimate skill combo. (bunny slope, same experiment)

I have the answer.

No.

While the experiment yielded negative results here and in box, we are now wiser. Or at least we should be. (coach boneheads like troll sometimes)

Anyway, onto the draft.

The minotaur was drafted because our three big guys are for the frontline. They have the thick skull, 9av, and regen, and with 5ST, guard, and standfirm, they have the best chance of survival...especially if the opposition looks at that and says "nope, won't even try".

The current minotaur only had guard making him the weak link in the armor that would fail the other two big guys. This draftee completes the masterwork platemail (and is the reason why we've only lost 6 guys in 75 games)

The other draft pick was for those #$%#% elves and skinks that happily dodge circles around my anti-orc team and gingerly win the game. We dropped the 7av guy because...well...he's 7av (the -ag 4ST guy hopefully will get tentacles), and we have so many claw guys we can afford to lose one.

Yes, we missed the opportunity for a +Ma or +ag guy which we probably need quite badly, but to hec with it. We're famous for losing, so let's not disappoint the fans! Very Happy

*self edited when I realized a couple comments were not forum appropriate. I apologize for the offense.

NBFL Season 26 Preview

Another NBFL season is upon us, and it is slated to be the last one before BB2020 comes to our fabled league! With one last chance for glory before all the coaches become noobs again to some extent, who will seize this opportunity?

Instead of the usual preview and prediction post, this time I'll organize teams into tiers based on how I think they'll fare. We've already run through the rosters extensively in our Draft Grade Review show, so this will instead focus on a team's overall outlook. And of course, there will still be playoff predictions and the dreaded Ex-con Curse at the end!

(Teams are not listed in any real order in the tiers)

Top 10 (of the Draft)
The teams that will, unfortunately, struggle a bit and find themselves looking for answers and/or superstars in next season's draft

Mangledsota Many-Men: not even the addition of Paul Bunyan [UM] (#3 overall pick) can keep this Old World Alliance team from being well, an OWA team

Buffaelo Khills: sacrifices will be be made to the Blood God, but it won't be enough to avoid another losing season

Nawlins Lost Saints: an interesting collection of players, however, the lack of a cohesive plan will doom them again

New Zigguratland Chariots: I've heard that Joey Mendis would make a decent Bull Centaur

Warpstone Bay Ratscallions: if your draft was half as good as your logo, you wouldn't be in this category!

Chicаgo Beards: they won't have the first pick of the draft again, but I don't know if they'll be able to score enough to get many W's


Not Quite Ready
The teams that won't be awful but are a few pieces away from being able to compete for the playoffs

Arizona Redbulls: a good draft class to start the franchise with, but you are in a very difficult division

Kansas City Thiefs: we keep waiting for these Renegades to take the next step, but will they?

Titannesse Kraken's: a solid roster, but they have yet to truly compete for their very tough division

Lost Dogs of San Angeles: a new home may or may not have greener grass for Amon's team

No-Skincinnati Bungles: a solid draft haul, but perhaps one more class away from being ready

Philadelphia Regal Eagles: a beautiful draft gave them some nice pieces, but health and development are likely to be the focus for now


Playoff Potential
The teams that I wouldn't pencil in for a playoff spot, but are certainly capable if a few things go their way

Carolina Pythoness: one hell of a draft class plus a favorable division means that Waagh could surprise some people

Dallas Crowbar: the dwarfs will have to prove they can make it before I can believe in them

Jakesonville Jortles: one should never count the Jortles out, but mrt may not (yet) have the players he needs for his crazy strategies

Pittsburgh Steelcurs: the Steelcurs look ok right now, but if they develop more by midseason, they could be in for a surge

B'altimoor Sk'avens: coach Uber has the tools to surprise some teams with his rookie skaven, but can he keep them healthy?

San Foulcisco 69'ers: not an easy division to be in, but there are enough talented players to possibly make a push


Wildcard Locks
The teams that will make the playoffs but will also likely bow out quickly when they get there

Woodington Barkskins: Garc always makes the playoffs, and his low TV woodies won't be an exception

New York Kroaks: the Frogs have loaded up for a playoff run this season, and it's up to the coaching staff to use the pieces correctly

Cleaved Land Bedlam: likely the favorites in the AFC North, can the Bedlam live up to expectations?

New York Wrecks: surely a team with this much talent and recent playoff success can at least make it back to the dance


Divisional Dominion
The teams that likely don't quite measure up to the top tier teams, but that doesn't mean in a one-off blood bowl game that they can't pull the upset

Houston Treants: IF the Treants can suffer less perms, they have the coaching and a few key ingredients to go much further

C'attle C'haos: a rebound season is certainly possible, but can they be as dominant as they once were?

Atlatl Flechettes: surely they can't repeat last season's success and have the best regular season record again, right?

Los Angeles Glams: they have yet to recapture the magic from their Super Bowl title runs in seasons 20 and 23, but they haven't been far off either

Denver Brontos: they've gotten further and further the past few seasons; can these lizards finally put it all together?


Championship or Bust
The teams that expect nothing less than to make the Conference Championship game

Las Vegas Sinners: these fatty Dark Elves have everything they could possibly need to finally win the AFC

Icelandic Dolts: the reigning champs can certainly contend again, but will any sort of regression to the mean cost them another title?

Destroit Lynels: can the Lynels use their proven formula to make three straight NFC title games?


Super Bowl Dreams
The teams that look good on paper, have good coaching, and have shown previous playoff prowess

Miami Coronablights: this team is loaded and has unfinished business after last season's divisional round letdown

Green Baynana Grabbers: the Grabbers are ready to go (and throw) ape-shit over the entire league



With that said, here is how I see the season playing out (now with seven playoff spots per conference):

NFC:
1. Green Baynana Grabbers (N)
2. Los Angeles Glams (W)
3. Atlatl Flechettes (S)
4. New York Kroaks (E)
5. Destroit Lynels (N)
6. C'attle C'haos (W)
7. Woodington Barkskins (E)

NFC Championship:
Green Baynana vs Los Angeles

AFC:
1. Miami Coronablights (E)
2. Houston Treants (S)
3. Las Vegas Sinners (W)
4. Pittsburgh Steelcurs (N)
5. New York Wrecks (E)
6. Icelandic Dolts (S)
7. Denver Brontos (W)

AFC Championship:
Miami vs Las Vegas


Super Bowl XXVI:
Green Baynana Grabbers vs Miami Coronablights

Super Bowl Prediction:
Relezite adds Skaven to the list of races that he's won the NBFL with and starts to plan which one to use next in BB2020



Best of luck to everyone this season!
