Friday, August 31st, 2012

Darren McFadden lasted until the second round of my fantasy football draftI recently had my fantasy football draft for my friends league, the league I care the most about. This is our 9th year doing it and it gets even more competitive every year. It’s mostly standard scoring although it’s a PPR League. My picks are in bold. Overall, I think I drafted a great team but I’ll let you be the judge of that.

Before I get to the results, I should let you know you start 1QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE, 1 Flex (RB, WR, TE), 1 K, 1 DST (more…)

2012 Fantasy Football Mock Draft: 12 Teams, Standard Scoring

Tuesday, August 7th, 2012

Tom Brady went 7th overall in my first fantasy football draft of the 2012 seasonI recently had my first fantasy football draft of the 2012 season. While doing mock drafts online are great they can’t fully prepare you for the surprises of a real “live” draft. For one, without any computer rankings in front of them you will see a lot more reaches and surprising picks. Also depending on where you live, you can usually expert at least one “homer” pick. The results are posted below with my commentary on the best pick, worst pick, and my own pick. (more…)

Friday, June 8th, 2012

Seattle Seahawks          8 – 8

Arizona Cardinals          8 – 8

St Louis Rams              6 – 10

 

 

 

 

 

 

QBs

Matt Flynn: This could be a big question mark, but when given the keys to the Packers offense, he certainly did shine. The Seahawks offense certainly doesn’t compare to the Pack, but Flynn has shown some pretty great ability, and I think he has the chance to be a good starting NFL QB, and a good fantasy option as well.

Fantasy Football: Rookies Who Could Surprise

Saturday, May 19th, 2012
Brian Quick has the chance to start immediately for the Rams this season.

Could Brian Quick become the Rams new #1 wide receiver?

It can be a huge advantage to any fantasy team that is able to find a rookie who comes out of nowhere that they either take late in their draft or are able to snag off of the waiver wire. As a fantasy football owner I always try to spend my last pick or two on a rookie who has a chance to contribute immediately and could eventually be a starter for my fantasy football team. Last year, Denarius Moore turned out to be one of those guys. He was a 5th-round draft pick and went undrafted in most leagues but was able to contribute with 700 yards of offense and 6 total touchdowns. Below is a list of 7 players who may not be ranked among the top at their respective positions, but have lots of upside and the chance to outperform their draft position.

Brian Quick, WR, St. Louis Rams
Ever since Torry Holt left the Rams after the 2008 season, the Rams have been searching for a number one wide receiver. They have taken 6 receivers in the past 4 drafts and have acquired players like Drew Bennett, Mark Clayton, and Mike-Sims Walker, all which proved to be busts. (more…)
