The QB Plan

I’m heavily in magazine mode right now, so I’ll be throwing out tidbits from this year’s publication for the blog this week. Today’s installment is from the “Draft Plan” article I finished over the weekend. This is not the massive DP that we’ll produce later in the summer, but it’s a nice position-by-position overview of my plan of action.

It’s true there were a few players at the position who were undervalued and/or surprised last year, but there was also a ton of mediocrity.

  • How the New Focus on Defensive Penalties may Affect IDP August 11, 2014
    FantasyGuru.com IDP Analyst Corby Yarbrough can be found on Twitter @Corby_Yarbrough. Not that there is anything we as IDP players can do about it, but I just needed to vent my grief that an already inconsistent aspect of fantasy football has the potential to drive us even a little more crazy in 2014. Week One of the NFL preseason is in the books, and if the […]
