Exhibition game storylines

It is kind of hard for me to post on the blog when things are really busy because I feel all the stuff that needs to be covered is on the site, but I do have something of note today and that’s the upcoming preseason games, which will start tonight.

  • MFL10 Review: May 15, 2015 May 15, 2015
    I recently finished up a #MFL10 draft that I put together with some of my followers on Twitter, a practice that Tom Brolley, Matt Camp, and I will be continuing throughout the summer with our friends at MyFantasyLeague.
