Quote of the day
"Last night, in a pre-season game, the Clippers wiped out the Lakers 114-95. That's like Rick Perry beating Alex Trebek in 'Jeopardy!' " -- Jay Leno (last week)
Nasty business, the NBA starting over the Christmas break. Iím gradually getting my hoops stuff together, but Iím not there yet. At this point, I am updating the sortable stats daily for both Fanduel and DraftStreet. The linked versions in the previous sentence should be useful for evaluating the current daily contest in each format, since they screen out players with no games on the current day. Individual player pages are also updated with points and prices for those two game sites. But thereís more work to be done to get the RotoGuru stats capabilities up to my standards. By the way, if you want to try either FanDuel or DraftStreet and you havenít yet registered at those sites, please use the links in this sentence (or in the left menu panel). A great deal of the RotoGuru site revenue now comes from affiliate commissions for those two games. Thanks.
I need to backtrack on some football results. First, congrats to Bonka, who led the RIFC in points scored during the regular season and followed that up by winning the playoffs, claiming the championship game by a margin of less than one point.
Football Pickoff now moves into the playoffs. Two teams are neck and neck at this point, and although a few other teams could conceivably get into the conversation for the championship, it looks like it will come down to a two team race. If nothing else, the tight competition at the top should keep those teams from going into some sort of ďprevent defense,Ē at least for the ext few weeks. Meanwhile, my entry has now posted back-to-back weeks with positive scores, and it now looks like Iíll avoid the ignominy of finishing in dead last.
