The 2020-21 Fantasy League Season Preview

Nearly all the attention at this year’s winter meeting of the Competition Committee focused on strengthening the lineups of the three teams at the bottom of last season’s standings—the Citations, Affirmed, and Writs.  To this end, six law firms that did not appear before the Supreme Court over the last two terms have been relegated to the developmental league and replaced by firms whose recent activity bodes well for the teams that selected them.  The most coveted acquisition of last year’s off-season, Husch Blackwell, exceeded all expectations on the way to amassing 25 points for the Waivers during the 2019-20 campaign.  If any of the six new firms delivers something approaching this dazzling total, its team might dare to imagine challenging the league’s perennial champion, the Gavels of the State Public Defender’s office.

As in the past, scoring summaries will be posted here weekly, beginning in mid-January.  Meanwhile, fans can click on the appropriate link to view team rosters updated with the new law firms signed this offseason.
