Today’s piece (which actually posted yesterday) delves into fantasy football and when you should hold your draft.
As always, here is an excerpt and you can read the whole thing here.
The issue with having a draft so early is very simple. You add an extra element of luck to a game which already can be filled with it.
So many injuries, surprise cuts and sudden roster reversals happen during training camp and preseason games that even the most informed fantasy player can get caught short.
On of the most recent examples of this would be Matt Flynn losing the Seattle Seahawks starting quarterback job to Russell Wilson. Most thought that Flynn, who had signed a big contract with Seattle that offseason, would walk into the job, but that was not to be.
Early-drafting fantasy owners got quite a bit of a shock when they discovered Flynn was a wasted pick.
Of course, the challenge is to have a deep enough roster to survive such an event, but it can be unnecessarily hard for newer players or casual fans.
So again, you can check out the whole thing at Bleacher Report and thanks for coming by.
Also, I started shooting videos again, so keep an eye out for those as well.
