Yet another “Expert” Draft

I did yet another Expert Draft last night, and I’m here today to give you the results. I will analyze the three drafted posted here in more detail once we’re done with the magazine.This draft was for Fantasy Football Pro Forecast Magazine. Last year, I was the runner-up of this league, losing in the Championship Game in a pretty close matchup.I know it always seems like I have an early pick (I did not earlier this week in our own magazine’s draft). I do, for reason, but I’m not exactly glad about that.

Here’s the draft:

Round One
William Del Pilar 1 1 Tomlinson LaDainian RB
John Hansen 1 2 Jackson Steven RB
Ryan Houston 1 3 Johnson Larry RB
Adam Caplan 1 4 Gore Frank RB
Bob Harris 1 5 Alexander Shaun RB
Nick Bakay 1 6 Addai Joseph RB
Lenny Pappano 1 7 Parker Willie RB
Jamey Eisenberg 1 8 Westbrook Brian RB
Brandon Funston 1 9 Johnson Rudi RB
Jim Lenz 1 10 McGahee Willis RB
Todd Ullman 1 11 Brown Ronnie RB
Roger Rotter 1 12 Henry Travis RB 

I felt better about taking Jackson 2nd here, especially since I already have Johnson in one league and don’t want to get too heavily invested in him.

Round Two
Roger Rotter 2 1 Maroney Laurence RB
Todd Ullman 2 2 Smith Steve WR
Jim Lenz 2 3 Jones Thomas RB
Brandon Funston 2 4 Manning Peyton QB
Jamey Eisenberg 2 5 Bush Reggie RB
Lenny Pappano 2 6 Portis Clinton RB
Nick Bakay 2 7 Jones-Drew Maurice RB
Bob Harris 2 8 Lynch Marshawn RB
Adam Caplan 2 9 Benson Cedric RB
Ryan Houston 2 10 Holt Torry WR
John Hansen 2 11 Johnson Chad WR
William Del Pilar 2 12 James Edgerrin RB

In this league, you can start only 2 RBs, and that devalues them. It was best-player-on-the-board time, and I was happy to get my #1 ranked WR.

Round Three
William Del Pilar 3 1 McAllister Deuce RB
John Hansen 3 2 Harrison Marvin WR
Ryan Houston 3 3 Fitzgerald Larry WR
Adam Caplan 3 4 Williams Roy WR
Bob Harris 3 5 Wayne Reggie WR
Nick Bakay 3 6 Owens Terrell WR
Lenny Pappano 3 7 Moss Randy WR
Jamey Eisenberg 3 8 Boldin Anquan WR
Brandon Funston 3 9 Jacobs Brandon RB
Jim Lenz 3 10 Gates Antonio TE
Todd Ullman 3 11 Houshmandzadeh T.J. WR
Roger Rotter 3 12 Walker Javon WR

I’m still in best-player-on-the-board mode and none of the remaining RBs excite […]

    We recently received an email to the website asking us our personal feelings of the so-called “Zero RB” strategy that’s popped up in fantasy circles, but only seems to have exploded in recent years. As an avid fantasy player, I don’t subscribe to just one method of roster construction, but instead remain open to using […]
