Expert League Mid-Season Report

submit to reddit

At the beginning of the season I mentioned that I was in an expert league organized by Junkyard Jake. At the time I thought my draft went very well.  There was a huge run on running backs, so I picked up a lot of other quality players.

We're almost halfway through the season and I'm proud to say that I'm winning the league at the moment.  My team is 6-1 so far, mostly riding the coattails of Drew Brees and the surprising Steve Slaton.


Drew Brees and Aaron Rodgers have obviously both been amazing.  It might be time to trade one of them though and shore up another position.

My flier pick of Steve Slaton paid off big time.  Definitely great value for a 13th-round pick.


As I feared, Westbrook got injured and unfortunately my waiver priority was low and I couldn't pick up Buckhalter.  Luckily, Steve Slaton has been a fantastic fill-in.

Santonio Holmes has been a disappointment.  Not officially a bust yet, but my patience is wearing thin with him.


I think I can hang on to first place throughout the rest of the season, although I'll probably try to trade one of my QBs since I have depth there.  The league has an interesting 3-division structure, so the playoffs should be a lot of fun.  The league is very competitive, so I expect that it will be tough to win the whole championship.
