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? The shame of it is, after he plays against a Charger defense that has better talent than any other in the league, everyone will likely be picking on him come Monday. What I still don’t get, though, is how, if you’re only as good as your last performance, and I think you are in pro sports, how come Grossman gets crucified and Ben Roethlisberger is a God?

Grossman last year led his team to the Super Bowl in his first year as the full-time starter and threw 20 INTs

  • The Prince Connection: Rodgers and Nelson July 7, 2014
    If you follow along over at my Twitter account @FG_Dolan (shameless plug), you’ve probably noticed my undying love for Jordy Nelson, and the fact that I’d happily welcome him onto any of my fantasy teams this year. First of all, he’s madly productive as is: he hauled in 85/1314/8 last year and averaged 16.5 FPG in a PPR league. That was good enough to rank h […]

  • 12-Team PPR Mock Auction Review, Strategy, and Lessons Learned June 5, 2014
    On somewhat of a whim, I decided to do some mocking on Wednesday night, but instead of trying to compare ADP numbers and working out the best spots to pick from, my idea was to run an auction. We ended up getting a 12-team PPR mock auction with a $200 cap done in a few hours, although with the informal atmosphere, a handful of teams ended up going on autodra […]
