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 […]

  • Brolley MFL10 Review (5/27/15) May 27, 2015
    I recently completed my first ever MFL10 with subscribers and Twitter followers. I’m using MFL10s to get draft practice and to get an early feel for where players could be drafted later this summer. I’ve also done an industry draft – you can call it an “expert draft” if you’d like – so I’m already two […]

  • Fantasy Kickers and the New Extra-Point Rule May 20, 2015
    The long-rumored and predicted rule change in the NFL passed at the owners’ meetings this week – extra points are officially moving from the two-yard line to the 15, changing them from the near-automatic equivalent of a 19-yard field goal to a 33-yard kick. If a team wants to attempt a two-point conversion, the ball […]

  • MFL10 Review: May 15, 2015 May 15, 2015
    I recently finished up a #MFL10 draft that I put together with some of my followers on Twitter, a practice that Tom Brolley, Matt Camp, and I will be continuing throughout the summer with our friends at MyFantasyLeague. It’s a great way to scratch your fantasy itch early, and to shake off some rust and […]
