I had a great time participating in the Rotoworld Rumble a few days back on Friday night. It was a $350 buy-in, so you know the sharks were at the top of their games. This was live ammo, not mocking. It should give you an idea of what some of the sharpest fantasy players are thinking right now. Over the next 50 minutes, I take a look at every squad and explain why I made each one of my picks.

Had a great time talking whisky and football with Rotoworld's John Daigle. The first 35-40 minutes are where the whisky-centric conversation sits and after that, it's mostly football, though you can hear the corks being popped and the spirit flowing throughout.
Today's whisky is Bruichladdich Islay Barley 2011.

This week's episode veers heavily towards football but much Elijah was consumed, and it was good. Hope you enjoy!
A few of the topics we hit:

Welcome back, everybody! We have a new program for you today.
Fantasy Highland will join two of my passions, football and whisky, into what is, hopefully, a palatable listening experience.
Each episode, I, and hopefully a guest, will talk about a new whisky or two and get into some football and or fantasy football. If the timing is right, hopefully you can enjoy a dram with us while you listen.
Today's guest is the venerable Scott Fish. Scott is my favorite commissioner. I've played in more than a few of his leagues and there is nobody I trust more to dispense league lading wisdom. Seriously, if you run a league, you just have to follow Scott.
In addition to being a great, and I mean great commish, Scott's a dynasty maven who can really run a team. I'll be picking his brains some on this year's rookie class.
Scott runs the coolest league in all of fantasy football: The Scott Fish Bowl. We'll talk a bit about hat as well. It's only fitting as it brings people together much the way a fine dram can. This year's theme is toys, which is also fitting if you are familiar with how Scott uses his various leagues to raise money for Toys 4 Tots each year.
Lastly, the whisky. Scott turned me onto one of his favorite drams: Balvenie Caribbean Cask 14. It took me a while to finally take the plunge. Me, being the value-hunter than fantasy has conditioned me to be, kept buying the Balvenie 12-year old Doublewood. It was on sale! It's a very nice bottle in its own right, but the Caribbean Cask is something special, as Scott and I will get into.
