FantasyGuru.com Magazine Expert Draft today

Today is the final “Expert Draft” of the spring, and it’s the biggest one of them all for me: FantasyGuru.com Magazine Expert League.

I’ve done well in these expert leagues over the years, winning I believe 16 championships, and although I had a so-so year in 2007, I’ve been pretty dominant in my various leagues the previous 3-4 years. However, I’ve got a mental block in this league or something. The first two years, 2003 and 2004, I was the #1 team heading into the playoffs, but fell in the post-season.

In short, I haven’t embarrassed myself, but I haven’t dominated, and most important I haven’t won.

That’s going to change this year because this league is mine in 2008.

  • 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 […]
