The Preseason is over, time to start picking on Grossman

We updated a lot of stuff on the site early this week for those still drafting. As of right now, the preseason is officially over for me. Whew. Wow, that was a lot of work keeping up with everything. We didn’t get a single complaint about our rankings, projections, news, etc. not being up-to-date, so I think we got the job done.

Now that it’s the regular season, it’s time to start picking on Rex Grossman. He’s five days from his 2007 debut, but why not start now?

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 […]
