Don’t discount Julius just yet

** SOPRANOS SPOILER AHEAD **  

Regular readers will have to bear with me these next few weeks in terms of this blog because I’m completely buried with the magazine and I have a ton of personal stuff going on. My oldest son is wrapping up his first year in High School, which is 40 minutes away, playing baseball for the HS team and also for our town’s Babe Ruth team. My other son plays little league (I’m one of his coaches), takes piano, is in school band, and goes to art classes. Oh, and we have 14 month twins to deal with and we’re building a massive addition to our 5-year old house to accommodate them.

I’m also trying to deal with the shock of Christopher Moltisanti dying last night on Sopranos and especially how he died.

    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 […]
