Profile: Dr.Kenton

I am a Licensed Physician with a focus in Sports Medicine and have grown up as both an athlete and an avid sports fan in Southern California, born and raised in Jim Rome's Jungle and the rest of the original Mighty XTRA Sports 690ers.   Working in the sports medicine world, I have seen the important role that team doctors serve and also how player injuries can greatly impact a team's hopes for a championship season.   This is what inspired me to now provide expert injury analysis for Fantasy Football teams. 

Fantasy football is no different in that knowing the extent of injuries and a player's ability to perform well on Sundays is the difference between winning and losing.  While we all have become familiar with the secrecy involved in teams disclosing accurate injury information, I seek to provide my readers with a more complete understanding of the extent of the injury and allow them to make more educated decisions regarding player personel moves.  Not only do I aim to provide a timeline of a player's return to the playing field, I can provide a more accurate timeline of a player's return to being actually effective and a worthwhile start for your fantasy football team rather than just is he "active" for the game or not.

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:
