Another Expert Draft on 7/28/98

I participated in another “Expert Draft” on 7/28, this one for a fantasy TV show called “Fantasy Huddle” that airs in various markets on Time Warner Cable. I wish I could actually participate in a draft without distractions, but that’s an impossibility around my house if I’m drafting at night, which I did in this one. On this occasion, I was watching my 2 year old twins, as usual, running around the yard and wreaking havoc wherever they went.

I don’t think I had a bad draft because I drafted a lot of good players in good spots; I did have a plan, but I wanted this to be a “perfect” draft, and I fell a little short because I didn’t draft optimally.

The results varied throughout the week and Falcon rookie RB Devonta Freeman led most of the way, but things certainly changed after a full week of preseason games:                           As you can see, the final results put 49er rookie RB Carlo […]

  • How the New Focus on Defensive Penalties may Affect IDP August 11, 2014
    FantasyGuru.com IDP Analyst Corby Yarbrough can be found on Twitter @Corby_Yarbrough. Not that there is anything we as IDP players can do about it, but I just needed to vent my grief that an already inconsistent aspect of fantasy football has the potential to drive us even a little more crazy in 2014. Week One of the NFL preseason is in the books, and if the […]
