Fantasy Sports Boys: Ideal Draft Position This Year

By TJ Horgan Let's face it; the first pick in your fantasy football draft is not always the best pick. Arguments can be made about which pick has yielded the best results in the past, but the fact of the matter is that each year's crop of talent is different and cannot be quantified by looking at the previous years' draft positions.

The Fantasy Sports Boys: Patriots’ Running Backs
