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. [...]

If you’re loo […]

  • Poll Result Analysis: RB Sleeper Candidate Targets August 12, 2014
    Over the last week, we posted a poll asking you which RB sleeper candidate was at the top of your targets list. 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 […]
