My own fantasy draft advice that helps you win or lose

I think I am in four leagues this year. I can’t remember. But I do know my football and I have fantasy advice to share. After some hits and misses from last year’s suggestion box, let’s see how this one goes.

These suggestions are just that. I can’t guarantee victory for any of you, but hey, I’ll share what I know.

1 – QB in first round last year was encouraged, but not this year.

Getting a solid running back first and possibly a great tight end is a bigger priority.

Throughout this season, there had been debate as to what an elite quarterback is and if Manning qualified for that status. San Francisco 49ers quarterback Alex Smith is elite according to his head coach. Are both Manning and Smith elite? Well, after today, the definition of elite has become real clear.
