One of my favorite movie scenes is an obscure moment in Batman (1989) where Grissom is talking to his associate Jack Napier (pre Joker transformation). They are in a deserted office and Grissom, Napier’s boss, is telling him about why he was chosen for an important job. Grissom grips him by the shoulders and hisses “you’re my…numbah one…guuyyy”. It’s both creepy and awesome. I feel like I am telling this to each and every player on a weekly basis as I slide them into my lineup.

Since I am in an all time high 18 fantasy football leagues this year, I have a lot of guys. But only a select few have the honor of being so cherished by me that I have invested heavily. These leagues range from a long running standard redraft to  startup 2 QB superflex PPR devy league and everything in between. Because of this, some draft strategies have been different than others, but overall I clearly have some soft spots for certain players.  If you like reading about other people’s fake football teams, proceed!

Pre-season is wrapping up soon and most of us have completed our rookie drafts. As we sit around and rosterba—- err, “admiring” what we have built, it’s easy to get carried away by pre-season hype. This is a volatile time of year to swap assets with other teams. We have seen countless rookies flash in pre-season only to bust when facing the 1st string, while others have zero preseason impact and break out all over the place.  Here are a handful of rookies that are worth the hype.

B_Don and Donk Teeth are back talking football and sausage on the Ditka Pod this week. Digging in on the 2019 rookie wide receiver class, the sausage stuffers profile each of the wide outs taken in the first two rounds of this year’s NFL draft. It’s a deep class with lots of speed and deep threats.

Marquise “Hollywood” Brown was the first WR off the board this year, mainly because he’s Antonio Brown’s cousin…and he’s good at football too. N’Keal Harry was the only other receiver taken in the first round of the NFL draft, but the second round saw a whopping seven receivers go off the board: Deebo Samuel, A.J. Brown, Mecole Hardman, JJ Arcega-Whiteside, Parris Campbell, Andy Isabella, and D.K. Metcalf. Find out which of these studs to target in your dynasty rookie drafts, who has the most redraft potential, and who to invite over to your house for stimulating conversation over a juicy bratwurst.
