Just a quickie on Josh Morgan

You may remember last August I had a post entitled “Please Draft Josh Morgan.” The post was one of the more active ones of the summer, likely based on the title. As August unfolded, however, I become more enamored with Eddie Royal, especially when Morgan had a health issue that definitely prevented him from opening the season as a starter. That issue took him several weeks to recover from, and it derailed his 2008 season, one that, admittedly, probably wasn’t going to be anything special given the poor situation in SF, where the head coach was fired, the OC Mike Martz was rendered irrelevant, and where the QB was benched in favor of more of a game manager in Shaun Hill.

You'll be hard-pressed to find a better example of a young wideout with an excellent chance to collect a ton of playing in 2009 than 49er Josh Morgan

    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 […]

  • 12-Team PPR Mock Auction Review, Strategy, and Lessons Learned June 5, 2014
    On somewhat of a whim, I decided to do some mocking on Wednesday night, but instead of trying to compare ADP numbers and working out the best spots to pick from, my idea was to run an auction. We ended up getting a 12-team PPR mock auction with a $200 cap done in a few hours, although with the informal atmosphere, a handful of teams ended up going on autodra […]
