Congratulations to Tony Holm of Fantasy Sharks. He's the winner of our annual Experts Draft League. Antonio Brown may not be happy about playing for the Pittsburgh Steelers these days, but he worked out great as Holm's top pick.
We drafted this league back in May, in order to get the results into our preseason Annual. Picking 6th, Holm started his draft with Brown and A.J. Green. Green was hurt late in the season, but Holm's mid-round pick of Mike Williams helped pick up the slack. He also had a strong quarterback duo (Drew Brees and Deshaun Watson) and his other early picks (Jordan Howard, Sony Michel and Brandin Cooks) didn't hurt him. They also didn't get hurt, which is key in this no-transaction league, where it's not possible to cover for major injuries.
Lenny Pappano of Draft Sharks came in 2nd. His top two picks from the 7th spot were Saquon Barkley and Davante Adams. Sam Hendricks of Extra Point Press came in 3rd, and his early picks also carried him: Alvin Kamara, Christian McCaffrey and Travis Kelce.
Final standings are below. To minimize scheduling luck, each team played every other team each week, with the top score going 11-0, lowest score going 0-11, etc. Auction league results will be posted later in the week.
