NFL Teams Draft for Fantasy

Free agency is just about dead, so it’s time to turn our attention to the draft. I’m hoping to produce a Podcast with myself, Adam Caplan, and Tony Pauline of the TFY Draft Preview show very soon, possibly this week, and we’ll have our Pre-Draft Rookie Report out by month’s end.

  • 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 […]
