2019 - King's Classic - Jim Brown Division - Week 1

Each week, we bring you the results of the Jim Brown Division in the King’s Classic Expert League! Follow the league on Twitter @KingsClassicFF

In the summer of 1963 the Greater Oakland Professional Pigskin Prognosticators League held what would be the first ever fantasy football draft.  Shortly thereafter, the Kings X bar opened in Oakland and introduced fantasy football to its patrons.  Since the opening of the Kings X in 1968, fantasy football has snowballed into the multi-billion dollar industry that has spawned a radio network, network time devoted to fantasy on all the major sports networks, numerous websites, podcasts and even a clothing line.  In 2018, the Inaugural King’s Classic took place at the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio.  The idea was a dual effort of Canton native and creator Big Guy Fantasy Sports, Bob Lung, and Brad Evans of Yahoo Sports.  Their vision was for 24 of the best and brightest minds in fantasy football to assemble at the Hall of Fame in two divisions, for two drafts.  The divisions were named for the first two picks in the inaugural GOPPPL draft, first overall pick George Blanda, who was followed by the legendary Jim Brown.  Each player participated in both a snake and auction draft, with half of the $100 entry fee going to charity.

We added four more teams in Year 2 and had our drafts on Saturday, Aug 17. Once again with Sirius Fantasy Sports Radio in attendance!

Each week, we will recap the happenings in both divisions.  You can also follow along with each league by clicking the links below.  It’s anyone’s guess, but one thing is certain, it’s going to be a wild ride!

Games of the Week

Snake Division


Unlike the George Blanda Division, the Jim Brown Division was nail biter city baby!  With two games being decided by 3.1 points or less, the game of the week nod goes to Mike Clay and Brad Evans slugfest, with Clay winning by a score of 151.1 – 148.2.  Clay benefitted from more than 20 points from Tom Brady, Michael Thomas and Alshon Jeffery.  Evans got big production from his backfield as Derrick Henry and Dalvin Cook both topped 25 points, but it wasn’t enough for the win. 


Auction Division


The auction game of the week nod goes to the matchup of Bob Harris and Jim Coventry with Harris narrowly escaping with a 136.1 – 131.4 win.  Harris’ team was powered by rookies with Josh Jacobs and Kyler Murray both eclipsing 20 points.  Coventry enjoyed 20 – plus point days from Marlon Mack, Delanie Walker and Tyrell Williams, but didn’t get quite enough from Williams on Monday night to pull out the victory.
