Fantasy Douche has traditionally been one to bust conventions when it comes to NFL truths, written or unwritten. Back in January, he challenged the assumption that a quarterback is the key to a winning franchise by taking a look at the Patriots' passing game history and what it means to have talented receivers. "Obviously the… Continue reading Do franchise quarterbacks deserve all the credit for winning?
Footballguys' Sigmund Bloom explained his quarterback tiers last month, and while the tiers themselves may not come as a surprise, the chunks Bloom creates with his tiers clearly show how deep the quarterback position is this year. Even if you choose to pass on top options and wait until the very late rounds to consider… Continue reading Quarterbacks aplenty in 2013
According to Ian Rapoport on Twitter, Ronnie Hillman, Montee Ball, and Knowshon Moreno will rotate drive-by-drive as a running back by committee, or RBBC, in Denver. The goal of the drive-by-drive rotation will be to keep the offense moving fast with few substitutions while allowing each running back their fair chance to get in a…… Continue reading Ronnie Hillman and the Broncos Backfield: Own the Whole Herd
ESPN’s Eric Karabell knocks drafting Aaron Rodgers, Darren McFadden, DeMarco Murray, Greg Jennings, Rob Gronkowski, and Danny Amendola at their current average draft positions. http://youtu.be/rVE7D5CjV3Y Karabell always seems to be a running back (RB-RB) traditionalist, so his dislike of Aaron Rodgers as a first round pick and advising against injury-prone backs doesn’t surprise me. On…… Continue reading Who are you overdrafting in 2013?
SB Nation’s War Room gives some great advice: “Never bet against Adrian Peterson.” Also, “BBQ and Andy Reid are a match made in heaven.” I can’t say I agree with the Doug Martin hate. I’m a full believer in that department, and I love him even more when you look at the schedule he faces…… Continue reading SB Nation’s Fantasy Draft Guide 2013 advises “Never bet against Adrian Peterson”
Despite the terribleness that is the Oakland Raiders offense, Terrelle Pryor may still have fantasy potential this season. Assuming he lands the starting job over Matt Flynn, Pryor adds a running threat to counter Oakland’s shaky offensive line. Also unlike Matt Flynn, he has the arm strength to hit the long ball passes to Oakland’s…… Continue reading Terrelle Pryor: Sleeper Fantasy Quarterback?
Drafting Calvin Johnson in the first round is a risky proposition this year. There’s no doubt he’s the top of the wide receiver heap, but with running backs as scarce as they are this season, can you survive if you miss out on a running back in the first round? Christopher Harris at ESPN recommends…… Continue reading Megatrick: The argument against drafting Calvin Johnson in 2013
http://youtu.be/8gHLsT49NyQ I’m late to the party, but Lance Zierlein of The Sideline View hosted this Google+ Hangout with two of the great minds in fantasy football, Sigmund Bloom and Matt Waldman, to discuss the most overrated and underrated players as we close out the 2012 fantasy football draft season. Their conversation touches on early hype…… Continue reading Brandon Lloyd, Fred Davis, and The 2012 Quarterback Craze
I pity the fool that doesn’t learn from his past mistakes, and 2011 broke a few of the fantasy football molds. No Peyton Manning. The Texans made the playoffs. Rex Grossman is good? Okay…for a few weeks, he was good. And let’s not forget Reggie Bush was a feature back, and Cam Newton was a…… Continue reading Takeaways from the 2011 Fantasy Football Season
If I’m going to say Rob Gronkowski might not be all Yo Soy Fiesta in New England, I should probably explain where I expect those points to go. And besides the obvious choice in Brandon Lloyd, there’s another tight end in New England who had a not-too-shabby year in 2011. For some reason, ESPN has…… Continue reading The Case for Aaron Hernandez as a Sleeper Tight End
