Time for more Draftmaster fun! This draft is the real deal son, so don’t be fooled by the title of the post. It’s named that way to encourage you to do exactly what the title suggests in the comments rather than doing it quietly amongst your friends.Please, blog, may I have some more?
(Doc’s Note: Here is PFF’s Mike Clay’s post on our recent draft, with our evaluations of the teams. You’ll have to go to PFF to see the individual grades since they didn’t fit here. This draft is one of the few I’ve ever gone with a top QB and top TE and it ended up hurting me even though I got them at decent value.Please, blog, may I have some more?
As we wait impatiently for the NFL and NFLPA to give each other giant hugs, buy each other gifts and quit acting like scorned ex-lovers trying to split assets, we fantasy footballers continue to march to our own drum beat. There have been a series of drafts taking place in the Twitterverse, thanks to the one they call @FantasyTaz. If you haven’t gotten in on the fantasy football version of March Madness yet, hit up @FantasyTaz to get yourself involved in the Draftmaster drafts. These drafts play out, but you don’t touch them during the season.Please, blog, may I have some more?
There’s not a ton of news to report unless you want to read correspondence between Roger Goodell and the players, but I figured we could do for a little news this Monday morning. I’ve been working on drafting tiers and they should be out soon. I know how all of you are chomping at the bit to start drafting!Please, blog, may I have some more?
Every year since the 2007 fantasy season, 49ers running back Frank Gore has been a first round pick in fantasy drafts. I’m not so sure he’s worthy of that status in 2011.
Don’t get me wrong – I’m a big Frank Gore fan. Mostly because, more often than not, he’s the reason I can email my opponents on Tuesdays with “In Your Face!” proudly proclaimed in the subject line after he just lead my inappropriately named fantasy team to victory that week. Gore has been a fantasy stud for years and has put up studly-like numbers for us living the dream vicariously through him, but I think his best fantasy years may be behind him.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Hello Razzballers! We are going to just have to pretend that there will be a full season of football this year and use our ability to block out those things that we rather not think about. School loans? Huh, what’s that?Please, blog, may I have some more?
The 2011 NFL draft is fast approaching, and very well could be the only thing to look forward to this season. My rankings are not a prediction of draft order; they are just a breakdown of the top talent available this year.Please, blog, may I have some more?
As the CBA deadline of March 3rd approached, NFL teams were busy releasing players, signing players, giving out new contracts, and giving a few players some big fat juicy tenders just before the clock struck midnight. Most of the moves were pretty mild, but there were some that perked up my fantasy ears. Take a look-see:
Pierre Thomas: The Saints signed Thomas to a new 4 year/$12 million contract. This move is a bit of a surprise considering how effective Chris Ivory was in his absence last season. Ivory isn’t going anywhere and the fate of Reggie Bush is yet to be determined, but this signing suggests there will be plenty of carries for Pierre Thomas in 2011. 15-20 touches a game seems fair, which would make Thomas a solid RB2 option in all formats. He also averaged nearly 5 receptions a game when healthy last year, which puts him in the top tier of awesomeness among running backs in PPR leagues.Please, blog, may I have some more?
