I didn't realize how heavily invested in MJD I was - four out of six leagues, including those with the two biggest stakes (NFFC online and Stopa Law Firm). Also three Lamar Millers, three Ahmad Bradshaws. Also three with LaMichael James.

For QB, three leagues with Andrew Luck, and for WR, three with Rod Streater and three with Rueben Randle. For TE, I had Antonio Gates and Coby Fleener in four each.

Last night was your first auction? Nuts. I like Randle. I think he emerges and Giants let Nicks walk after this, his contract year.

I'm high on MJD as well as a great value pick this year. He seems healthy and is now in the same scheme as Alf and Foster so I'm excited about what he can do in it. A lot of people are sleeping on Bradshaw, mainly because he's an Ari RB, but I think that team is going to be much improved and he'll have a good chance to close out games. That's really been one of the knocks (other than health) I've had on Ari RBs in the past-they've hardly ever been able to get a lead for a RB to run out the clock. I also like your Gates picks. He's another high value/low cost pick this year.

Interesting to get your view on Antonio Gates, I assume you have him at at least #8 at TE. I've loved him in the past, but it seems like he is on the backside and that seems a little high to me. Just wondering what it is that is making him a decent gamble to you?

I guess I'd take Gates because he's healthy right now, and he was once great - as in all-time great, so maybe he has another good year left. TEs typically age well - Gonzalez, Witten, Heath Miller (before he got hurt, V. Davis) - it's not a young man's position like RB. And he's available late enough that if he busts, you can just drop him. That and the SD WRs are all so injury prone, he could get a lot of looks.

Do Analytics Take the Fun Out of Sports?
Apparently that was the topic of one of the presentations at the Sloan Sports Analytics Conference in Boston last week. The presenter, Yale's Edward Tufte, opined:

Don't let people tell you analytics are reductionist and take the joy out of sports. They mostly just take the stupidity out of sports.

Is he right?

RotoWire's AL LABR Squad
The 2014 AL LABR auction went down at the Arizona Republic offices in downtown Phoenix Saturday night. It's a 12-team, 5 x 5, AL-only league with 2 C, 1 1B, 1 2B. 1 3B, 1 SS, 1 CI, 1 MI, 5 OF, 1 U and 9 pitchers. Everyone has $260 to spend.
The Problem With Drafting Billy Hamilton
Billy Hamilton went for $28 in the NL LABR auction this past weekend. I discussed this with a fellow writer who participates in Tout Wars with me later this month and we discussed the problem with investing heavily into Hamilton.

My 12-Team NFBC RotoWire Online Championship Team
I drafted out of the 11-hole for the "Beat Chris Liss" league. I had done a fair amount of research on optimal roster construction from that slot, and I decided I'd go hitter in the first round, three pitchers in 2-4 and then hitting for the next 10 rounds or so before filling in with upside pitchers late. Of course, few battle plans survive the actual war. Here are the results:
