Fantasy Index Expers finishes 14th, 10th and 10th-11th overall

Fantasy Index Experts Poll

Running the numbers for four different systems, the same names tend to come out on top. Scott Pianowski is the winner in three of them. L'Roy Hale is champion in the other.

Below are four different possible formats for the regular Experts Poll competition (the 30-11, 25-6 and 20-1 sliding scales, as well as one chart based on the average of the other three).

Scott Pianowski of Yahoo! Sports is definitely the winner for 2013. He won three of the four different formats (including the one designated prior to the competition as the official scoring for the contest).

L’Roy Hale of Fantasy First won the other scoring format. He came in first when more of a priority was placed on the highest picked (with guys ranked 15th to 20th not mattering so much).

The same names are at the top in every format, and the same names are at the bottom. Pianowski, Hale and Henry are in the top 4 in every format.

Just because a guy finishes near the bottom, by the way, doesn’t mean that you should disregard his opinions in the future. Lenny Pappano, Paul Charchian, Christopher Harris and Tony Holm finished in the bottom 5 in a lot of formats, and those guys know their stuff.

Injuries play a huge role in this kind of a contest. Anybody who was high on players like Connor Barth, Dennis Pitta, Percy Harvin, Doug Martin, Arian Foster, Michael Crabtree and Josh Freeman was going to take a beating.

The picks were due in mid-May.

I finished 12th in QB, 5th in RB, 18th in WR, 13th in TE, 16th in K and 13th in Def for a 14th overall finish.
