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. One of the drafts was for NFL.com – one that I imagine will be posted on the league’s official site shortly.

  • The LeSean McCoy Trade, RB Declines, and Chip Kelly March 4, 2015
    If you’re a 24/7/365 football nut, chances are you’ve already digested just about all you can about yesterday’s blockbuster LeSean McCoy/Kiko Alonso trade between the Eagles and Bills. I’ve gone on record on Twitter saying I don’t like the deal for Buffalo – McCoy is an eight-figure back coming off a down year, still a […]
