I’m competing in DraftDay’s Expert Challenge in Week 5 (since I lost in Week 3 to some CHUMP), and you can win your way into the tournament this weekend.

Go here and use the code “EXPERTGAME” to play for free.

I’m also doing an experts challenge at DraftStreet that you can’t join but you can monitor from a safe distance. Pretty shitty Week 3, so I’m ranked 28th out of 70 experts right now.

And finally, check out my latest article at RotoWire on running back scarcity:

Running Backs

So that’s the background for the most recent study I did on running backs. Looking at running back scarcity from 2009 to 2012, we see a much different story.


There are minor deviations, but for the most part, the position has looked the same every year. There’s a massive drop from the top tier runners – the top six or so – and then a gradual but steady decline from there.

Even if we “zoom in” on the backs ranked seventh or worse, we see the same general trend each season.
