I see Fitz is on the cover of the new Madden football game.....since I am the only one apparently not drinking the kool aid with him I thought I would just throw that out I will have to side with Erickson's team....Greene is a huge sleeper imho.....

You guys need to do some auction drafts.....I think you under estimate how popular it is now in football.....Brees coming off a career year and mom dying scares me....good luck.

Erickson takes MOJO #1!!! Wow, I know it is being done but I would have thought he'd play it safe with AP.

Just running the numbers in our draft tool, MJD grades out higher in a PPR league. So do Fitz and CJ, actually.

Liss, are you planning on using Winslow as your Flex player?
By: Chris Liss
On: 8/14/2009 10:25:00 AM
Probably for now. Just felt he slipped so much and didn't want any one else to get him there.

Wow. Addai all the way to the 5th in a 14-team league. He's turning into a value pick.

Erickson- I neglected to see the PPR, I immediately looked at the draft table. In a PPR league I'd definitely agree. MoJo would be my #1 too. Sorry.

DDD went young with his WRs: Royal, DJax and Avery. Could be a huge year if things fall into place.

Chris, Thomas over Gore? Is it more that you're high on Thomas or sour on Gore?
By: Chris Liss

It was close between Thomas, Gore and Kevin Smith. I like the offense Thomas is in, but Gore was probably the safer play. Not that I'd necessarily advise others to do the same, but it was a gut call.

Just a few things that caught my eye:

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?
