Congratulations to Bob Henry of Footballguys.com. He¹s the winner of the
Tight Ends portion of the Experts Poll that appeared in the 2011 edition of
Fantasy Football Index magazine.
Henry ranked Rob Gronkowski 6th, higher than any other expert, and that got
his campaign off to a good start. He also picked up some value by dropping
Antonio Gates to 2nd; the majority of experts had Gates No. 1.
Alan Satterlee of Dynasty Rogues finished in 2nd place, and Scott Pianowski
of Yahoo! finished in the 3rd. The pair of shark entries rounded out the top
5 Tony Holm of ³Fantasy Sharks² and Lenny Pappano of ³Draft Sharks². Those
are separate companies. Pappano founded Draftsharks.com in 1999, and Holm
came along a little later. Same animal, but different guys.
The scoring for this competition is notorious complex. In short, the higher
you rank a player, the more his production counts towards your overall
score. With Gronkowski, for example , he scored 241 fantasy points. If you
ranked him first in your top 20, that would be worth 4,820 points (20 x
241). If you ranked him 2nd, that would be worth 4,579 (19 x 241). If you
ranked him 18th, that would be 723 points (3 x 241). And if you didn¹t rank
him at all, you would take a zero for the Gronk.
