Dynasty pick #2

Today it was time for me to make my second pick in this startup Dynasty Draft. Already in this league the young and productive impact players without issues are dwindling down, and with a QB taken in the First Round (Cam Newton), the two young, stud TEs (Graham and Gronk) gone, and a ton of good WRs still on the board, I wanted to lock up a RB I can hang my hat on.

    The long-rumored and predicted rule change in the NFL passed at the owners’ meetings this week – extra points are officially moving from the two-yard line to the 15, changing them from the near-automatic equivalent of a 19-yard field goal to a 33-yard kick. If a team wants to attempt a two-point conversion, the ball […]
