Fantasy Pro Tour: Popular Picks

Posted in Event Coverage on August 13, 2002

By Monty Ashley

The Fantasy Pro Tour for the 2002 World Championships has 3,604 players, easily a record for the Fantasy Pro Tour. The most popular player was Jon Finkel, whose recent lack of success on the Pro Tour did not dissuade those with good memories, who saw his 19-point price tag as a bargain. The next two on the list, US National Team Members Eric Franz and Andrew Ranks, were attractive to people thanks to their low cost (zero points for each) and the prospect of big winnings on the team day.
