3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Jeremy Crowhurst on August 20, 2006
This is a very good looking book, well-written in the sense of being very readable, but there's really very little in it. It doesn't have enough basic stuff to be useful for beginners, and doesn't have anything advanced in it to separate it from the pack. All in all, there are two or three magazines published every year that offer all the same stuff and much, much more.

The chapters are all very, very short, some as short as a two pages. Some of his key theories are palpably absurd. My favorite: load up on rookie running backs, ANY rookie running backs, because "it may not pay off every season, but when it does the dividends can be astronomical." He then helpfully adds that this strategy is particularly good in a keeper league. (It's almost like that commercial that airs from time to time where the guy tells the rookie, "don't worry about top running backs, they'll be there later on, and don't be afraid to grab your kicker early.")

Another one of his grand theories is to "beware of free agent wide receivers". He gives a list of examples that didn't work out, while acknowledging two that did (Joe Horn, Jerry Rice in Oakland). One of his points in this chapter is on Andre Rison. He strongly suggests, without actually saying, that Rison's success in Atlanta was due to the run-and-shoot offence, and not because he was an elite talent. His conclusion is based on the fact that when he left Atlanta for Cleveland, he tanked.

More compelling in my view is the fact that despite seven different starting QB's, and two different head coaches, Rison had a five year stretch that is better than anybody in the Hall of Fame (with the possible exception of Lance Alworth).

The book says: "strategy, not cheat sheets win championships". It is so true. You need to have STRATEGY for how you draft your team and how you manage it during the season and this book delivers on both.
