For the US Open, we had the good fortune of adding a little spice to the fantasy draft preview as we went live on the Eddie and Webby Show Saturday evening where Slim teamed up with Eddie and Gritty teamed up with Webby to make picks for the US Open.
For all the new readers or those who are still confused about the fantasy draft, the players and teams noted above are not our picks for winners. Rather, these are our drafted teams. There are no duplicates. We each pick 3 teams/players from the five pro brackets (singles, doubles, mixed) in a snake style draft and get points based on the medals our teams/players get during the tournament (3 points for gold, 2 points for silver, 1 point for bronze). The person with the most cumulative team points at the end of the weekend wins the week.
We’ll also be doing previews for the split age and senior divisions for the US Open. These will be your standard previews as opposed to our fantasy draft previews.
The fantasy draft picks for the US Open are outlined below but, again, the reasoning for the picks is only in the Eddie and Webby live show for now.
