Fanex draft: post mortem
Posted Aug. 23 at 01:24 PM
We finished that Fanex draft – the 12-team PPR experts league. I made T.J. Duckett my final choice, as a No. 5 running back.
Overall, I wasn’t thrilled with the draft. I felt I was taking a lot of guys a round too early – they were the highest-rated players on my board, and I was always left mulling whether to take a lesser player in hopes of sneaking a guy through.
Overall, however, it seems to grade out OK. For each team, I took one quarterback, one kicker, one defense and the best 9 at the other positions (so mostly starters, but some depth as well) and totaled up the points, based on my projections. I’ve got a fairly healthy 200-yard point bulge on the field. Not that I’m guaranteeing another title. I’m sure that if each of the other 11 guys did the same thing, they’d say their team graded out as the best.
But this is how I see the franchises, based on my projections and one more of grading …
2531 Ian Allan
2314 Mark Nulty
2303 Mike Perlow
2254 Tony Holm
2250 Craig Davis
2235 Greg Kellogg

Through three drafts, (10, 12, and 14 teams) I've experienced the same exact thing, feeling as though I'm drafting the highest player on my board too early. Over time though I've convinced myself it was the right thing to do, as the only one I gambled in (the 10 team, ppr) I lost out on both Mason and AGonzalez. Wisdom isn't always the most appealing, hopefully it prevails for the both of us, since we have nearly identical teams.
