Scott Pianowski was kind enough to join me for about an hour and break down players to target and avoid in drafts. We also discuss some basic strategy at the end, but the discussions of a whole host of players, covering every position, is really where it's at. And when I say discussions, I mean he tells you what you need to know and I do my best to stay out of his way.

Great podcast, thanks.  Only input here is I hope to hear more of your views next time, vs. as interviewer, but that's just personal preference.

The way I see it, when Pianow talks, people (including me) should listen. I wanted to touch on as many players as possible without going crazy long, so just getting Pianowski's takes for the most part seemed like the best way to go about it.

Added the iTunes link to the post.

Matt, that is the right view and a humble one.  My two cents is that I always found your take, through yahoo articles and otherwise, to be the most insightful.  I imagine I would feel the same on Ken's views.

Personal view is that each of the current yahoo and espn personalities have something strong to offer but never a complete picture.  I would love to hear more editorial here over time about how the values provided here could impact viewpoints and biases.  Then again, I am an investor by trade, so this is what I love and swear by.

baseballmonster is the Bill James of fantasy.
