Attention auction enthusiasts

I am fired up today because we just reached an agreement with a company to produce for us an excel-based Auction Draft tool that I think will be totally bad ass. We will have more details to come, and this will take probably 2-3 weeks to complete, but here’s the basics of this new tool that will, of course, be free for subscribers.

  • 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.
