My final installment of IDP advice before Week 1 Rankings will be the briefest. Simply put, DBs are the least predictable IDP position, and no matter what strategy you employ, you’ll likely see weeks with huge point totals, and weeks of near shut-outs.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Back by popular demand I bring you the first two rounds factor. And by ‘popular’ I mean ‘I’ve never typed this before’ and by ‘demand’ I mean ‘two people commented about how to handle the first two rounds on my Preseason-palooza post last week and how it could dictate the rest of your draft and here’s me humbling obliging’. See how much less text you have to deal with when I say ‘popular demand’? You’re welcome. The reality is how you spend your first two picks has a domino effect on the rest of your draft. It makes guys who were sleepers or steals worthless pickups or dire needs depending on how you start this silly little game of ours. So to try and
put out as many articles as possible assist you in your drafting journey, I’m here to give you the lowdown on how to handle the rounds beyond depending on what you did for the first two. So here’s my draft strategy for said sitch for 2013 Fantasy Football…but wait, there’s more! Ok, not really. Just me kindly reminding you that we have this whole Razzball Commenter Leagues thing going on. Nothing big, really, just a way for you to winner a killer Razzball jump suit and to show everyone on Razzball how awesometastic you are. No bigs. Oh you’re interested? Well then go click the link and get started! And now on with the post…
Draft season is in full-swing now, so I’ll be brief before getting to the meat and potatoes of this article. The saying goes that the Middle Linebacker is the Quarterback of the defense. Well in IDP leagues, the Linebacker is the Runningback of the defense.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Hello one and all. Yes, I’m keeping the draft strategies rolling out. No, this is not by popular demand. Yes, it’s useful information. No, it’s not just filler. Yes, the first few sentences of this paragraph ARE filler. No, it won’t continue much longer. Yes, I promise. See? We’re done now. I know a lot of people have put out general draft strategies and have done so much earlier. I get that. But I also realize for all intents and purposes, the draft season is really starting right about now as most people wait until this week or early next to get their draft on. If you’re already done and you did some of the don’ts well apply some of these don’ts to your next draft. I assume you’re in more than one Fantasy Football league for 2013. To not be would be very unamerican in my book. But enough with that, I have a long list to go over here so I can’t dawdle too long. So lets cover some do’s and don’ts draft strategy for 2013 Fantasy Football…but of course I have to remind you of the Razzball Commenter Leagues before I do so. To not do so would also be unamerican. And now moving on…Please, blog, may I have some more?
Over the past couple of months, you’ve seen the rankings, you’ve seen the sleepers, you’ve seen the busts, and you’ve seen the NSFW Blurred Lines video. Now you’re ready to do two things: Draft and Google Image search Emily Ratajkowski with SafeSearch off. I’ll give you a minute…okay welcome back. Now you’re ready to do one thing: Draft.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Warning, I think this post might be short. Like really, really short. Like why your girlfriend laughs every time your pants drop and you ask ‘why are you laughing’ and she says ‘you’re just so cute’ kind of short. It will be short namely because I can’t preach to you about the subject at hand for longer then about 300 words unless I throw a lot of fluff at you and since I don’t want you to think I’m a fluffer, I’m not gonna do it. I also realize the reasoning behind this is partially personal and partially league setup. I’m speaking more on behalf of standard type league setup and not for the deeper ones where I would be more inclined to draft or pick up a handcuff and I will delve a bit into that, how I’d do it and why in this little ditty as well. Overall, this is a sticking point for me when discussing drafting strategies because of the position at hand we’re talking about and I’ll do my best to refute the many reasons that people use to excuse themselves for doing it as we go along. But without further ado, let’s take a look at why I don’t want any handcuffs as part of my Vandersexxx nor for 2013 Fantasy Football…nope, still interrupting myself. We need commissioners and we need more leagues for our Razzball Commenter Leagues. I’d offer you money but since I’m already offering a grand prize to the big time winner I think you’re getting plenty to play this game for free with us. So go click that link to find out how before reading on…I’m waiting…nope, still waiting I can tell you haven’t gone and done it yet…nope…ok, ok now you can proceed.Please, blog, may I have some more?
As they say, change is inevitable. Whether it’s the tuck rule, the crown of the helmet rule or the ‘how many days can I wear my drawers before they’re considered stanky’ rule, we as a species are always creating new ways to experience this little world of ours and fantasy football is no different. I’m not gonna bore you with the stats but we have all noticed the QB position become the most dominant offensive spot in our lineup over the last few years and the depth at the position has become hard to ignore. So with that in mind, I’m gonna two-tone this post by not only trying to give you draft strategy but also strongly suggesting your leagues become two QB leagues but not the standard version. For all that talk of QBs being great offensively, there’s no reason anyone should ever feel they have to draft Christian Ponder and a 2QB setting would do that. I strongly encourage if you do go the two QB route that you go with a QB and a QB flex (QB/RB/TE/WR) position to back it up. It adds a unique wrinkle to your draft strategy and puts less weight on drafting those afterthought schlubs. So now that I’ve derailed, I’m gonna rerail and get us back on course. So lets discuss some two QB draft strategies for 2013 Fantasy Football…seriously, who’s working on this railroad? We interrupt your route to fantasy football glory to give you another way to said glory via our Razzball Commenter Leagues. I had a dream the other night where some weird guy whispered into my ear ‘if you build it, they will come’ and woke up and created this year’s RCLs. Only you’re not coming…well, not coming to Commish or join leagues. Do you not like us? Do we smell funny? Not cool…neverthewho, I guess I’ll still talk draft strategy with you but note I’m doing it under protest…Please, blog, may I have some more?
Greetings one and all, since we’ll be doing our Razzball Commenter Leagues via yahoo this year – and if you haven’t up, clicky-click on that linky-link to do so now – I thought it would be fair to highlight some round by round value plays for a 12 team league much like it so you get a feel for how I’d draft in this little shin-dig. Because as we all know, I’m so important that you should care how I’d draft. Now I’m gonna go round by round so clearly the first few aren’t going to be difficult to call ‘values’, per se. But of course, I’ll aim to do a follow up to this piece called the Anti-
Christ ADP so you get a feel for guys I’ll avoid via their round value. Just in case someone out there isn’t familiar with our RCL set up, it’s 12 team PPR with W/R/T flex and 6 bench spots with the rest being, as they say, ‘the youzzzch’…or however you special the kid’s abbreviation of ‘usual’. Now keep in mind, I know some draft picks will be unreasonable. That’s not the point of this exercise. I’m simply pointing out round by round whom I think is a steal or undervalued so if someone’s bye week if my QBs have the same bye week, you can tell me but I promise you I won’t care. But now that we’ve laid the groundwork, let me do the footwork as I take you throw my All-ADP Team for 2013 Fantasy Football…well I can’t very well talk to you about the RCLs without strongly encouraging you to sign up for said RCLs now could I? Here’s the link. Get over there, create a league, then go back and look at yourself in the mirror and see how happy you’ve made yourself. Now if you’ll excuse me, I still have a post to finish…
So at first I thought I could fill up an entire post on just one strategy for wide receivers. Then I thought to myself ‘really, how much can you say about just one approach about wide receivers? You’re no Charles Dickens, broseph’. I have these casual chats with myself sometimes. It eases the pain of feeling forever alone…but nonetheless, there’s more then one way to approach those 3 wideouts in your draft. Most times, just like anything, it will depend who’s available to you and when. If I have Calvin Johnson as my WR1, that’s going to make me reconsider who my WR2 should/could be vs if it’s, say, Randall Cobb. Different strokes for different folks there, Willis, and we’re gonna try to account for them all as best we can. So without further fluff, let’s take a look at draft strategy for wide receivers for the 2013 Fantasy Football season…oops, looks like I forgot something…what was it? Oh yeah, if you’re not signed up or commishing a Razzball Commenter League by now, you’re dead to me son! So go find out how to get involved and maybe along the way you win the grand prize. What prize is that, you ask? Well ya gotta go click the link to find out, brochacho! And now I’m done pandering/threatening so let’s get back on course…Please, blog, may I have some more?
So you’re gonna notice something if you’re a previous reader. Though I don’t like repeating myself, I’m going to repeat myself. There’s only so much new you can bring to a personal strategy each year. Most of what’s ‘new’ here is going to be the intro post. I like to make cultural references of the time so that I can look back in a year and say ‘what the heck was THAT all about?’ to myself. For that reason, I’m just going to say ‘Sharknado’ and move on with the knowledge I’ve completely mindf’ed my future self. But of course, you didn’t come here for my love of messing with future versions of me, you’re here to discuss auction draft strategy for 2013 fantasy football…Please, blog, may I have some more?
