I’m obsessed with Derek Anderson

I’ve been meaning to check in on a recent site poll subject, Brown QB Derek Anderson, and the results of that poll. The question was: will Anderson deliver the goods in 2008? And by “the goods” I mean basically something close to what he gave us last year, and close to expectations in 2008.

As an avid fantasy player, I don’t subscribe to just one method of roster construction, but instead remain open to using […]
