Rotobowl Draft

Just got back from the Rotobowl Draft, and wanted to share my team. Had a nice draft, although I lost focus late. It is a long day. Adam Caplan and Zap from our staff drafted today. We’ll get their draft up somewhere soon, and Adam and I decided before the draft to have a little competition to see who scores the most points and keep track of it each week.

Here’s my draft, PPR league, picked 2nd.

Brian Westbrook – Over Peterson in this PPR league.

Tony Romo – Just before the draft Zap reminded me how important the QBs were in this league last year and I am enamored with Romo’s potential, so I strayed from my own rankings and passed on Clinton Portis.

Brandon Marshall – Little early, but I just had to have this beast.

Greg Jennings – Feel pretty good to get him here, since the WRs were going really fast and I opted for Romo in the 2nd over some good ones.

  • 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 […]
