Tried this for the first time this season, finished in 15,676th overall.
I missed a few lockouts early on and just forgot to trade at times so decided to focus on winning my public league title after a really bad start in terms of overall, and save full trades for the finals. It actually worked alright, I made the GF and scored 1,633 this round (793rd for the round), but in the end, I still lost the final to a team scoring 1,666 (465th). Not much else I could have done, so can't complain.
I'm happy with how I went for a first attempt, not knowing any players at all, but not sure that I'll be back next year. Too hard to keep up with for me - I fielded multiple players who had been dropped/suspended and copped the lowest bench score instead.
