Super Bowl and Pro Bowl Fantasy Games and Predictions

Sunday, January 27th, 2013

super bowl fantasy footballThere might be no harder game to predict in sports then the NFL all-star game. Some players see this game as a three hour annoyance in a other wise great vacation, while others like say Brandon Marshal treat the game as a person showcase. After the terrible effort shown at last years Pro Bowl commissioner Rodger Goodell threatened to cancel the event due to a lack of effort shown by the players. If that wasn’t motivating enough seeing an old vet like Peyton Manning calling for a better game should rally the teams to put out a better effort. Here are my predictions for Pro-bowl MVP. (more…)

2012 Fantasy Football | Draftcalc.com Review

Friday, July 13th, 2012

Plain and simple, www.DraftCalc.com focuses on providing some of the boldest and most unconventional fantasy football information around. From rankings to bold predictions, from full-season and weekly projections to mock draft write-ups, DraftCalc.com truly understands what the typical fantasy football owner is looking for when it comes to fantasy football information gathering. And how about the quality of the advice? Even though it’s bold, it’s insanely accurate. No one is going to get every prediction right year after year, but not many, if any, land as many big-time breakouts as Smitty. What has Smitty landed over the 7 years that he has been in the fantasy football predicting business?

Smitty predicted the rises of Cam NewtonJimmy Graham and Victor Cruz as in 2012. And, it’s not like he just vaguely spoke about them once or twice, he actually had all three listed inside his Top 10 Bold Predictions for 2011… he also predicted the breakouts of bothArian Foster and LeSean McCoy in 2010, and again, we aren’t talking vague stuff… he called Foster a top 10RB and said he was his absolute #1 breakout candidate heading into 2010 (and he said this when Foster was a 4th-rounder). Ray Rice was his big-time land in 2009, and Michael and Maurice Jones-Drew were the home run picks of 2008. The list goes on and on, all the way back to calling Adrian Peterson a top 5 overall fantasy football dynasty player heading into his rookie season (before he played a single snap, and while so many were still calling this runner a big risk)… Still not convinced? Check out DraftCalc’s testimonials to back up the predictions spoken about above, and watch DraftCalc.com’s site intro video in order to hear, and watch, some of these predictions with your own eyes and ears.

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…)

Mondays Minings: a Fantasy-minded Review of all of the Weekend’s Action

Monday, January 16th, 2012

He didn't have the biggest statline, but Marques Colston may have done the most for his 2012 value this weekend.

It’s Monday again. Of course, it’s the last Monday before the conference championships so players are left with a diminishing pool of options in playoff fantasy football games. Next week, the last four teams will meet up in real football and players are either all set in playoff fantasy challenges or are scrambling to find replacement players that they can afford in salary cap playoff fantasy football contests. But still, every game means something, and we can still learn, mix up the 2012 fantasy football rankings, or just gain a better appreciation for the players that will affect our weekly fantasy football competitions in the coming year.
