Following my lead

I’ve been working this week on my annual “Lessons Learned” article and I gotta say; I didn’t learn all that much in 2006.
Clipped from the article:

“It wasn’t a particularly good year for the QBs, and it wasn’t a good year for the RBs. The WRs were a mix bag, as usual, and while it turned out to be a decent year for TEs, it was ugly early, and there were no real breakout stars. The kickers were basically a mess all season, and I dare you to find me a fantasy defense that put up good numbers on a weekly basis other than the Bear and Ravens. The Waiver Wire is always paramount when it comes to fantasy success, but 2006 wasn’t a great year for WW gems, either.

  • The Prince Connection: Rodgers and Nelson July 7, 2014
    If you follow along over at my Twitter account @FG_Dolan (shameless plug), you’ve probably noticed my undying love for Jordy Nelson, and the fact that I’d happily welcome him onto any of my fantasy teams this year. First of all, he’s madly productive as is: he hauled in 85/1314/8 last year and averaged 16.5 FPG in a PPR league. That was good enough to rank h […]
