NFL.com expert draft today at 4pm ET

Next draft is today, for NFL.com, this one will be featured on the site, so I need to stand out and draft well. It’s 6 pts for all TDs, and last year I got pinched a little at QB and had to take Marc Bulger. My first pick was Steven Jackson, and I lost Andre Johnson for most of the season, and also Ronnie Brown. So you can imagine how my season went (I was actually in the playoff picture until the final week).

I drew the 5th pick. I wish I could get some picks at the end o the 1st to see how it goes, but I keep drawing higher picks, totally by chance.

This pick is interesting because I may take Tom Brady. I really don’t want to, but I don’t want Steven Jackson at this point, too risky 5th overall. And I am a little worried about Frank Gore because it’s not a PPR league. With the TDs counting as 6 pts, Brady is very safe. Or, if someone else takes him, I’ll just snap up Joe Addai. I hope that’s the case. If I do get Addai, I’ll likely take a QB in the 3rd, hopefully Brees. [...]

  • 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 […]
