|Coach Nicky had a unexceptional draft in the recent 2016 Earlston Fantasy Football League draft. Their Tranent Tigers franchise came away with the number 7 ranked draft (out of 12) in the league based on analysis by MyFantasyLeague.com.
Tranent Tigers made their best pick of the draft in round 1, selecting Antonio Brown with the 2nd pick of the draft, as compared to the 1st spot he should have been selected in, according to ADP rankings. “He can play on Sundays,” Tranent Tigers coach Nicky said.
Tranent Tigers made their worst pick of the draft in round 6, selecting Julius Thomas with the 71st pick of the draft, as compared to the 92nd spot he should have been selected in, according to ADP rankings. “I know some are thinking that he will be this year’s Ryan Leaf,” Tranent Tigers coach Nicky said.
Tranent Tigers nabbed Antonio Brown in the 1st round, which reflects the fact that he was the number one ranked wide receiver for the 2015 season, based on this league’s custom scoring rules.
Tranent Tigers nabbed Stephen Gostkowski in the 11th round, which reflects the fact that he was the number one ranked place kicker for the 2015 season, based on this league’s custom scoring rules.
With a little bit of work on the waiver wire this season, or a few strategic trades, coach Nicky should be able to turn their 7th ranked draft effort into a championship fantasy team this year.

Coach Nicky and the Tranent Tigers franchise came away with the number 4 ranked draft (out of 12) in the league based on analysis by MyFantasyLeague.com.
A strong looking outfit who’s strength lies with stars in a number of positions. Adrian Peterson was a justified No.1 pick and he’s joined by Justin Forsett as a powerful 1-2 RB punch. CJ Spiller is an effective flex start. Devonta Freeman and Darren Sproles are acceptable backups who can play roles given the right matchup.
The WRs are less strong with Emmanuel Sanders heading up the group. He’s unlikely to have a repeat of last year’s career year, but he should be a consistent scorer. Sammy Watkins while talented must endure the Bills QB woes and is likely to be a frustrating starter. Veterans Boldin, Garcon and Floyd are all solid backups.
The black unicorn and future hall of famer Antonio Gates are the TEs and should be consistent, although unspectacular, starters.
Brandon McManus and the Rams are solid K and DST selections.
With a little bit of work on the waiver wire this season, or a few strategic trades, coach Nicky should be able to turn their 4th ranked draft effort into a playoff fantasy team this year.
