Incredibly, yet another “Expert Draft”

I realized last night as my son’s little league game was heading into the bottom of the last that I had another “expert draft” scheduled, and it was starting in 5 minutes. Our side went down relatively easy in the last, so I didn’t miss a pitch and luckily for me I live right down the bike path from our field, less than a five minute walk.

If you’re loo […]

  • 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 […]
