CBS Sports IDP draft

I think I took it to them yesterday, and a very looooong 29-round IDP draft for CBS Sports.com. As usual, I didn’t address IDPs significantly, opting for lower-end starters. I won this league two years in a row using this strategy, and my team is looking damn good this year. Maybe not my IDPs, but overall, I was very happy with this draft.

Positions: QB, RB, WR, TE, RB-WR-TE, K, DL, LB, DB, DL-LB-DB and ST.

Facebook Fantasy Draft from 9/1

As my head continues to swim this week, I had another draft last night, this one the “official” expert draft for Facebook. Yes, I know I make excuses about always being distracted during my drafts, but this one was indisputable: I did this draft online while hosting a national radio show, Sirius Fantasy Football (our first Tuesday night, no less), on Sirius NFL radio while putting callers on the air and interviewing Felix Jones nonetheless.

So I didn’t maximize value and the draft, yet while this was actually a pretty tough draft (facebook tried to get the top heavy hitters), I think my team is solid. It’s a 12-team NON PPR. You can only start 2 RBs and 2 WRs plus a flex (as opposed to 2 RBs, 3 WRs, and a flex). So I finally got a TE early. I didn’t pay a dear price, but my RBs are a little weak. But overall, pretty good team all things considering.

One other note: I found last year that there were a lot of good options on the WW in this league, so I decided to grab my DT earlier than I have, to create the best starting lineup possible. I think […]

If a team wants to attempt a two-point conversion, the ball […]

It’s a great way to scratch your fantasy itch early, and to shake off some rust and […]

  • The LeSean McCoy Trade, RB Declines, and Chip Kelly March 4, 2015
    If you’re a 24/7/365 football nut, chances are you’ve already digested just about all you can about yesterday’s blockbuster LeSean McCoy/Kiko Alonso trade between the Eagles and Bills. I’ve gone on record on Twitter saying I don’t like the deal for Buffalo – McCoy is an eight-figure back coming off a down year, still a […]
