Quote of the day
"There is nothing on me that's 100 percent. There wasn't anything that was 100 percent last year or the year before. Ö I have played 309 straight games, I can't complain." -- Brett Favre, announcing that he was returning to play for the Vikings
The RIFC draft started this morning, and all of the qualifying league drafts have either just started or are about to. If you want to follow these league drafts, you can track them all with this link. Also, after we have completed the first two rounds, RIFC managers will be posting brief rationales for each pick (on a 2 round lag). Iíll post a link for that when the time comes.
I should point out that the RIFC leagues are somewhat different than traditional leagues in several respects. First, we start six IDPs (Individual Defensive Players) in addition to one team defense. We have 14 teams, and each team must start 2 running backs each week, which puts a real strain on the depth of that position. Also, punt and kick return yardage and TDs are scored for all players. So there are some significant relative value differences that may make the results of this draft inapplicable to other leagues. If you see a pick that raises your eyebrows, it may be due to one of these idiosyncrasies. Then again, it may just be a stupid pick. Time will tell.
The Wyndham Championship is off and running, and the popular favorite for GuruGolf is Ryan Moore, on roughly 35% of all foursomes. Moore won this event last year, so I guess thatís the primary attraction.
