  • Hope all is well. Trying to reach Kurt T. Bullard for The Dan Patrick Show regarding his piece on Dolphins predicted to make the Super Bowl this upcoming season. Just need a head-shot, a land-line # to reach him at, and his exact title/position. Thank you very much. Todd Fritz / Executive Producer / The Dan Patrick Show

  • NFL Fantasy – Variation in fantasy production between annual classes

    In my fantasy league a lot of owners, based upon expert claims in the fantasy rhealm, have chosen to punt the 2016 rookie draft in dynasty leagues and trade away picks for a supposedly legendary upcoming 2017 draft.

    I wonder whether it is smart to go against the concensus. As such, is there any statistical analysis of fantasy classes from year to year? How much variation is there really between fantasy classes historically?

    To me opportunity is a key support to talent, for determining whether a player works out, so I see some opportunities even within this year’s rookie class…

    Any feedback would be helpful. And feel free to do a study 🙂
