First six picks (reviewed in previous posts):

1.03 Newton, Cam CAR QB

2.10 Peterson, Adrian MIN RB

3.03 Welker, Wes NEP WR

4.10 Brown, Antonio PIT WR

    We recently received an email to the website asking us our personal feelings of the so-called “Zero RB” strategy that’s popped up in fantasy circles, but only seems to have exploded in recent years. As an avid fantasy player, I don’t subscribe to just one method of roster construction, but instead remain open to using […]
