1.6 - I took C.J. Spiller but was very tempted to take Trent Richardson. Norv Turner is the new offensive coordinator in Cleveland - the offensive architect behind the all-time great fantasy running backs Emmitt Smith and LaDainian Tomlinson - and Richardson is guaranteed to be the workhorse should he stay healthy. But Spiller was so much better than him on a per-play basis last year, and the Bills up-tempo scheme and mobile QB should boost Spiller.

2.7 - MJD - I strongly considered Julio Jones and Demaryius Thomas, but neither is a PPR monster given his team's other options, and there's so much more depth at WR than RB this year. Plus, MJD is a workhorse and pass catcher.

3.7 - Chris Johnson - I hated him at 1.6 last year, but with the O-line improvements, he was a no-brainer for me at this spot in a PPR.

4.6 - Jordy Nelson - I like Dwayne Bowe almost equally, but as much as I respect Andy Reid's offense, give me the No. 1 WR on the Packers over the top guy on the Chiefs.

5.7 - Torrey Smith - Talk about the only game in town. Considered Montee Ball for upside, but needed the WR more.

6.6 - Ahmad Bradshaw - Considered Vernon Davis who I really like at TE, but you can never have enough starting backs, and the Colts offense might be top shelf.

7.7 - Andrew Luck - Davis, Josh Gordon and Dennis Pitta went, so I didn't like any of the other options on the board. Was planning to wait even longer at QB, but Luck was easily my favorite left and the only player that jumped out at me.

8.6 - Danario Alexander - He was Philip Rivers' No. 1 guy down the stretch, he's big and fast and healthy for now. Plus I needed a No. 3 WR. Considered the safer Anquan Boldin.

9.7 - LaMichael James - Lightning fast, put on more muscle, and backing up Frank Gore who can't handle a huge workload anymore. Plus Kendall Hunter is coming back from a torn Achilles.

10.6 - Denarius Moore - I needed a No. 4 WR, and what if Matt Flynn turns out to be good, and the Raiders defense is predictably awful?

11.7 - Antonio Gates - I needed a TE, and no one else jumped out.

12.6 - Coby Fleener - He was hurt last year, and in any event, rookie TEs rarely do anything. The addition of his college offensive coordinator (who was also Luck's) should help, too.

13.7 - Sidney Rice - Stayed healthy last year, and what happens if/when Percy Harvin gets hurt?

14.6 - Michael Vick - All the other backup QBs were gone, and the upside here is obvious.

15.7 - A.J. Jenkins - They drafted this guy in the first round. He should get a shot this year.

16.6 - Knile Davis - 230 pounds and runs a 4.37 40. The Chiefs don't have much else behind Jamaal Charles.

17.7 - Malcom Floyd - I think I have San Diego's entire starting passing game, not by design, incidentally.

18.6 - Steven Hauschka - Decent kicker on a strong team.

19.7 - Jacoby Ford - Dynamic player when healthy, which is rarely.

20.6 - Steelers Defense - I expect them to be good. We'll see whether that translates to fantasy.

La-La-La-L.A. Gets Lord Stanley!
Just a few things that caught my eye:
  • Alec Martinez's Cup-winning goal celebration? # priceless. I wonder if he'll ever get his gloves back.
  • Henrik Lundqvist stopped the 50th shot of the game. He couldn't stop the 51st. #connsmythe if the Rangers had found a way to come back in this series.
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?
