Fantasy mailbag: JT Shriners

A few months ago, I was a guest on an Internet radio program to chat golf (what else?). It was the only time the host and I had ever spoken, but we had been in touch via email many times prior to discuss his fantasy team. During the introduction, he said that he feels like he knows me personally since he reads my content every week. It's arguably the greatest compliment one could pay, but another loyal reader one-upped him this morning, thanks to a nod at some success.

Hey, Rob. It’s funny, I’ve obviously never met you, but I feel like we are good friends. Great job again this year. I play in a fantasy golf league on Yahoo! and won! A lot of credit goes to you; never missed an article. Great information and insight! Already looking forward to next year. Thanks for all the help! Yours truly, Kris.

For those of you that have never reached out directly for assistance, you might not know that I respond to every email. Fantasy golf is enough of a vertical market, but the numerous formats across its landscape demand personal attention. Kris has emailed occasionally, which partially explains the bond.

As I've stated throughout my tenure, engaging with you is a valuable tool for me to establish both short- and long-term perspectives. You are the street, and fantasy value is relative.

For those of you still elbowing for a league championship, take a minute to review the Top 25 in career earnings in the Fall Series. For year-by-year evaluations, click here. Of course, you can always reach me via email or Twitter if you want help.

I will continue to share my one-and-done and duffer picks in this space through the Fall Series. Here are my picks for the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open:

ONE-AND-DONE: Robert Garrigus ... 2012 earnings: $6,774,953.00
DUFFER: Bart Bryant ... 2012 earnings: $612,595.50
