Weighing in on something…

Yahoo! Sports reported yesterday that Titan RB LenDale White weighed over 260 pounds earlier this month at the start of the team’s off-season conditioning program.

I have mentioned several times how White is nowhere near being ready to be their guy, but this is ridiculous. This guy was considered a top-15 overall pick right after the national championship game last year, yet concerns about his weight, among other things, caused his stock to drop. The Titans couldn’t pass on him in the 2nd, but that’s still a big drop from where he was projected to go right after his college career ended. From Day One, head coach Jeff Fisher was concerned with his weight and his conditioning, and the concerns lasted quite a long time.

    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 […]

  • 12-Team PPR Mock Auction Review, Strategy, and Lessons Learned June 5, 2014
    On somewhat of a whim, I decided to do some mocking on Wednesday night, but instead of trying to compare ADP numbers and working out the best spots to pick from, my idea was to run an auction. We ended up getting a 12-team PPR mock auction with a $200 cap done in a few hours, although with the informal atmosphere, a handful of teams ended up going on autodra […]
