More Expert Leagues

I did a couple more expert drafts late last weekend, and I’m not thrilled with the results. I think both teams are solid, but I’m not doing handstands.

My biggest problem in this one was there was some confusion as to whether or not we could start a flex or not. We were instructed to draft at least 1 QB, 2 RBs, 3 WRs, 1 Flex, etc. But on the league’s official scoring page, it did not list a flex starter.

    We continue to update the position battles around the league, but in this blog, I thought looking at preseason playing time would be interesting. The depth chart doesn’t always tell the whole story and it’s certainly worth noting when players get in the game and who they get to play with, whether it’s with the first-team offense or the backups. If you’re loo […]

  • Poll Result Analysis: RB Sleeper Candidate Targets August 12, 2014
    Over the last week, we posted a poll asking you which RB sleeper candidate was at the top of your targets list. The results varied throughout the week and Falcon rookie RB Devonta Freeman led most of the way, but things certainly changed after a full week of preseason games:                           As you can see, the final results put 49er rookie RB Carlo […]
