Expert drafts, interviews and rankings

Look for my rankings and commentary in Fantasy Football Index magazine on pages 54-71.
In that same issue my Auction team from their Fantasy Football Index Mock Auction is discussed on pages 78-83. Of note is the “Which team is the team to beat?” where 4 of the other 11 Experts pick my team as one to beat. Others getting 4 votes were David Dodds from and Scott Pianowski from Yahoo sports.
I am also featured weekly on www.fantasy in the “Ask the Experts” column.
Speaking of Experts, check out my fantasy football team at and track the success of that team against the other experts. You will find our recent draft, interviews about the thought process and much more.

TOP 4 RBs set?

Looks like the Top 4 RBs in the standard performance PPR league are pretty much set.

1) LT gets the #1 spot in most cases

2) Adrian Peterson

3) Steven Jackson

4) Brian Westbrook

You can shuffle the #2-#4 spots but all 4 end up in the Top 4 somewhere

Best Sleeper Pick and why?

Matt Forte (RB CHI). Many cheat sheets have him around 28th overall for RBs. Yes he is a rookie and you should not take too many chances on new meat in the NFL. However, rookie RBs are the most successful players and especially when they have the opportunity to excel. Forte has been given the starting role with the recent release of Cedric Benson. He has only Adrian Peterson pushing him. Forte showed real promise at Tulane and given the ball by Lovie Smith in Chicago, he could easily be a Top 15 RB (especially in NON PPR leagues).
