Don’t Hex Rex just yet

I have some thoughts on Rex Grossman, since it seems some think I am shrinking in his chair a la Fred Flinstone after Grossman’s game on Monday night.

I am not.

First of all, I think the play of Grossman, Jay Cutler, and Vince Young this past weekend were all good examples of one thing I have said over and over again this year: I think it’s very important to get one of the top QBs in 2007. These three young players definitely have potential, but maybe we can’t rely on him just yet. There are many young QBs starting this year – that’s why I think it’s important to roll with one of the top guys.

As for Grossman, keep in mind that at least half of my affinity for him is specifically tied to his value in drafts. If he does crap the bed, I sure hope I don’t see any e-mails from people complaining how they wasted a 12th round, or even a 10th round draft pick on Grossman because that would be pretty ridiculous.   

On Grossman’s play, I thought he had some good moments throwing the ball, and that’s the thing that I focus on when […]

The Experts Drafting Late

We finished up the FantasyGuru.com Magazine draft last night, the final six rounds. Each year we draft 14 rounds for the magazine and make everyone draft a starting lineup then (1 QB, 2 RBs, 3 WRs, 1 Flex, 1 TE, 1 PK, 1 DT). Then in August we finish up, so we have a better idea of who to draft. The luck of the draw here is having one of th early picks in the second draft, since there are usually some players who are really standing out as good picks still available. I did not have one of those early picks, but I still made out pretty well. Here’s a recap:

15.01 169. Thomas Peterson, Adrian CHI RB
15.02 170. KFFL Martin, David MIA TE 
15.03 171. Fanball Faulk, Kevin NEP RB 
15.04 172. CBS Williamson, Troy MIN WR 
15.05 173. FootballDiehards.com Furrey, Mike DET WR 
15.06 174. Fantasy Index Watson, Kenny CIN RB 
15.07 175. The Huddle Bennett, Michael KCC RB Mon 
15.08 176. Footballinjuries.com Daniels, Owen HOU TE
15.09 177. Yahoo! Sports Snelling, Jason ATL RB
15.10 178. FantasyGuru.com Wade, Bobby MIN WR  – Happy to get him for depth in a PPR league. He could be worth starting as a 4th receiver.
15.11 179. Fantasy Sports Magazine […]

  • 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 […]
