Each week, we bring you the results of the George Blanda 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

https://fantasy.espn.com/football/league?leagueId=38503290

In the Blanda Snake division less than a point decided the matchup of the week as Team Footballguys managed by Drew Davenport squeaked out a 130 to 129.1 victory over the Tozzi Brothers.  Davenport’s team was led by wide outs Julio Jones and Nelson Agholor who combined for just under 50 points, while Josh Allen added 19 from the QB spot.  The Tozzi’s were led by Deshaun Watson, Marvin Jones and the Bears defense, all scoring over 20 points, but didn’t get enough production from the supporting cast to pull out the win.  

 

Auction Division

 https://fantasy.espn.com/football/league?leagueId=54744479

There was a little more breathing room in the Auction matchup of the week as Dennis Clausen’s Rotoballer team was able to score a 120.8 to 111.1 win over Chris Prince’s RotoGrinder’s team.  Clausen got a combined 50 points from running backs Mark Ingram and Leonard Fournette, while Patrick Mahomes was his usual dominant self with 27 points.  Prince was led by Juju Smith-Schuster with 17, Curtis Samuel with 16, and Travis Kelce with 15 but it wasn’t enough in the loss.

Games of the Week

 

Snake Division

https://fantasy.espn.com/football/league?leagueId=38503290

Week 2’s closest matchup of the snake division goes to the Fantrax HQ squad and the Tozzi Brothers, with Fantrax narrowly escaping with a 118.5 to 111.6 win.  Ron Rigney’s Fantrax team was led by the Ravens’ connection of Lamar Jackson and Mark Andrews combining for 55 points.  Tyler Lockett chipped in 17.9 to seal the deal.  The Tozzi Brothers got 22 point weeks from both Tyler Boyd and Saquon Barkley, but it wasn’t enough to get the win. 

 

Auction Division

 https://fantasy.espn.com/football/league?leagueId=54744479

In the auction division week 2’s tightest matchup was between Fantrax HQ and Doug Orth from FF Today with the Fantrax squad edging Team Orth 121.1 to 110.4.  Fantrax was led by the wide receiver duo of Emmanuel Sanders and Tyler Boyd, who combined for 50 points.  Kerryon Johnson added 16 in the win.  Team Orth was also led by a wideout duo with Chris Godwin and Davante Adams combining for 43.  Todd Gurley chipped in 15, but it wasn’t enough for the victory. 

We come to the close of the King's Classic Inaugural season!

Thank you again to all of the participants and congrats to all of the winners!

Auction

It was a matchup of the top two seeds for the crown in the George Blanda auction division as Brandon Funston of SiriusXM downed Mike Woellert’s 4 for 4 Fantasy squad 114.95 – 94.95.  Funston was led by Patrick Mahomes, who cost $1 in the auction (yes, you read correctly) as he continued his 2018 tear right into the fantasy playoffs.  The SiriusXM team also benefitted from big weeks out of Mike Evans and Alvin Kamara, as they both exceeded weekly projected outputs.  Woellert was let down by Patriots wide out Chris Hogan as he posted a goose egg.  The 4 for 4 team sported three players that scored below five points, but did benefit from huge day from Antonio Brown as he posted 37.5 fantasy points in the matchup.  Congrats on great regular seasons from both teams and a special salute to Brandon Funston for winning the inaugural King’s Classic George Blanda auction!

Snake

The snake division also saw the top two seeds square off as the Fantasy Mojo team of Darren Armani took down the FF Today squad of Doug Orth 180.45 – 116.45.  Team Mojo sported seven players that exceeded weekly projections, including Nick Foles, Christian McCaffrey, and Jamaal Williams, who all scored at least 23 points.  Orth’s team didn’t experience any huge letdowns on the day, but Tarik Cohen finishing with 2.4 points didn’t help the cause.  Andrew Luck and Chris Carson did their best to bring the crown home to FF Today, but it wasn’t enough.  Hats off to both teams and congratulations to Darren Armani for winning the 2018 King’s Classic George Blanda snake championship!
