Expert Leagues Galore

Checking in real quick. In the next 10 days, I will be doing “Exert Drafts” for Yahoo Sports, NFL.com, CBS Sportsline.com, and Fox Sports. These are all the “featured” expert leagues on these sites, so it’s time to get down to business. I’ll post all of them as soon as I can.

I gotta right this roster down, damn good draft in my opinion today for Yahoo. Here are my picks in order. 12-team, NON PPR league, TDs are 4 pts for passing.

Picked 4th

Brian Westbrook

Marques Colston

Tony Romo

Willie Parker

Calvin Johnson

Antonio Gates – Missed Bowe by 1 pick, which would have been ridiculous; couldn’t pass on the upside of Gates this late.

  • 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 […]
