Akers, David PHI PK
Bengals, Cincinnati CIN Def
Recall that in this DraftExperts format, your lineup is automatically filled in each week with your best performing players at each position. You are stuck with those players you drafted. You need adequate depth at each position to deal with the byes (or injuries), some solid studs that perform as expected, as well as some upside guys to exceed expectations. Baker Boy's team seems to have all these attributes.
It's a team that avoided injury (more than most other teams), had studs who performed (Rodgers, Gore, Wayne, Clark), and landed a few guys who broke out (Flacco, Forsett, Collie, Steve Smith, Jermichael Finley).
The overall standings are as follows:
Across the six divisions (of 12 teams), 4 Pros won their division, and 2 Joes won theirs. The division winners were: Joe Delzenero (AKA Baker Boy), Rich Dunn (AKA AzRich), LestersLegends.com, FantasyFootballCalculator.com, DynastyRogues.com, and FootballGuys.com .
