Sam Hendricks finished 15th in Fantasy Index Open WR Rankings and is 2nd overall out of 92 with 2 positions to go

Joe Russo remains at the top of the overall leaderboard. He’s the biochemist from San Diego. After four positions have been graded, he’s the only guy above 200,000 points. He’s got a 1,575-point lead over Sam Hendricks, who’s a fantasy football writer from Lynchburg, Va. Hendricks also participates in our regular Experts Poll and has written a number of fantasy books for Extra Point Press. Staines is in third place overall right now.

The winner of the Fantasy Index Open wins a gigantic trophy from Affordable Trophies.They’ve been making trophies for fantasy leagues for over 15 years. The trophy they’ll be handing out for this one is similar in size to an NFL Lombardi trophy.

The winner of this competition also wins a spot in the Experts Poll proper, where he’ll compete alongside the likes of Hendricks and the other panelists in that competition. This is a win-and-your-in competition.

Scoring is complex. The higher you rank a player, the most he counts towards your score. Rank him lower, and he doesn’t count as much. In the case of Brandon Marshall, he scored 216.6 points in this fantasy format. Cannon ranked him 2nd, so that’s 6,281 points (29 x 216.6). Had Cannon ranked him 1st, that would be 6,498 points (30 x 216.6). Had he ranked him 3rd, that would be 6,065 (28 x 216.6).

Still to come … running backs and quarterbacks.
