Hello fans of the football fantasy world. I’m excited to be back for another year of Razzball writing. In this column, Drew and I are going over our respective strategies in the context of a recent mock draft completed last week on yahoo’s fantasy site.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Last week I said I wanted to track Antonio Gates down like that dude did in “The League.” I was very tempted to strongly advocate for him, but he is due to see a doctor about his foot and it is hard to say how that will play out.Please, blog, may I have some more?
For an explanation about the numbers and rationale behind “Sleeper Math,” you can read the first column of the year. Congratulations to Ben Tate of the Houston Texans for graduating from “Sleeper Math.” He was in Tier III for the week 1 column.Please, blog, may I have some more?
This column highlights players with low perceived value. When a players value drops, or is low to begin with, there can be several causes. Injuries, changes in playing time and/or role, diminished skills due to aging, etc. The key to Fantasy Football is deciding whether a decrease in value is justified or not.Please, blog, may I have some more?
My mantra is all about value- get as much as you can in every round. RBs, WRs, and TEs fly off the board in different spots each draft, but quarterbacks tend to be relatively stable in groups. Keeper, Dynasty, and multiple QB Leagues get a lot more complicated and we would be glad to answer those questions specifically.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Jones and I are bringing you a recap of a draft we did recently. I wish I could tell you that this league is composed of championship level competition but I cannot. There are some savvy people, but a few that are clueless and a couple auto drafters to boot.Please, blog, may I have some more?
(Doc’s note: I wanted to tell you about Rudy’s new site KitchenSnark.com and his weekend sports roundup righchare. Now onto Drew’s post!)
The Bye Week factor is in full effect. Fantasy owners are being strung out and forced to start players they hadn’t even heard of a few weeks ago.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Andre Johnson 20 (10+10) He has been battling some minor injuries and the bi-polar nature of Schaub’s play thus far. Arian Foster doesn’t help much either; I liked the Texans a lot more when they didn’t have a running game.Please, blog, may I have some more?
As a refresher, here is the setup of the league:
-12 team, ½ PPR, 6 pts for TD’s (4 for passing), one Keeper per team
-Roster: QB, RB x 2, WR x 2, TE, Flex x 2, Kicker, Team Defense
Coming in to the draft I had Andre Johnson as a Keeper but had to give up my 2nd round pick.Please, blog, may I have some more?
This is not going to be a column where I talk about how wonderful Brett Favre is. In fact I really have nothing positive to say about him nor do I want him or the Vikings to be successful this season.Please, blog, may I have some more?
