Dynasty Draft Update

I have been buried with our player profiles, which are larger than ever this year, so I have neglected to keep anyone interested up-to-speed on this ongoing dynasty league startup draft. Here’s a quick review of my picks since I’ve last touched base.

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

5.03 Spiller, C.J. BUF RB

I’ve also done an industry draft – you can call it an “expert draft” if you’d like – so I’m already two […]

  • Fantasy Kickers and the New Extra-Point Rule May 20, 2015
    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 […]

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