Back in June, I wrote what I hoped would be the first in a series of weekly posts aimed to encourage me to write and share more of my thoughts, which I titled aptly titled A Quick IV Thoughts. I linked that post above and it goes over the details of what I am trying to accomplish with this series. Alas , I had not written anything for that series until today. Nonetheless, it is back. Today there is no theme to this post, just some thoughts I feel like sharing. Let’s get to it!Continue reading “A Quick IV Thoughts: 10/1/19”
My most recent attempt to push myself to write more yielded an article, but so far I have not followed through with that series of posts.

While fantasy baseball is my favorite of the fantasy sports to partake in, besides dungeons and dragons, fantasy football is definitely a close second. I started playing fantasy football in the fall of 2012 against my college friends, won the league, and from there I was hooked. I have joined many a league over the years since and have had some mixed success, but I have not been able to be as successfully as I generally am with fantasy baseball.
Part of the reason I like fantasy baseball more is I have a better understanding of the advanced stats and how I can leverage them to my advantage. While there are some advanced statistics out there, I have not taken the time to fully understand them and their connection to winning fantasy football leagues. In fact, most of what I use comes from reddit or the folks over at CBS. That said, every year I try to do something new to help give myself an advantage in my leagues and this year I finally decided to act upon an idea I have had for a few years now. I have started to track the average draft position (ADP) from Fantasys Pros over time in order to determine the value of players in the preseason.
