I know I’m going to lose a lot of man points here, but I could never get into pro sports. I played a lot of sports as a kid and in HS (especially hockey), but I have never been able to watch or follow any pro sports.

With that said my favorite part about fantasy football season is the League usually comes back on. That is one of the funniest shows ever.

The League is probably the most hilarious show going, love me some Rafi. But, yes Joe, you have lost man points. First your wife does better turnings than you and now your proclomation about sports … -2 man points ;)

You’re not the only one dude. Funnily, we’re the same age, I guess there’s some Chinese Snake sign thing with pro sports, cooking, sewing, building stuff in general, and not caring about any kind of stinky “man points” ;)

Playing fantasy football is out of the question for me.

My first loyalty is to my real-life home team, the Saints. If I had fantasy players, there would be times when their doing well would be counterproductive to what was best for my team. Say for example I drafted Cam Newton. He plays for a division rival. How can I root for him to have great stats? Conflict of interest…. can’t do it!

Charlie, i wholey undersstand your point. Im a die hard Chiefs fan and will never ever root against my Chiefs. For this reason i typically wont draft anyone from the Chiefs but last year i did, jamaal charles, blown ACL week 1 … lesson learned.

The conflict of interest is indeed tough to overcome but once you get into it its like crack. Just one little hit Charlie cmon, all the cool kids are doin it lol.

Do you think that Jimmy Graham will reproduce a season this year like last year? His fantasy stock is through the roof this year, going in the 2nd round. TE’s usually go very late in the draft.

Graham is an unbelievable athlete. The only things that would keep him from having a great season would be a) injury or b)constant double coverage. And I’m not even sure about b.

Are you guys going to put it all together on offense this year?

Im really hoping that we are. Peyton Hillis looks like hes back to 2010 form, Matt Cassell has Todd Haley off his back, Jamaal Charles and Tony Moeaki are back from torn ACL’s, WR Jon Baldwin has had a great camp, we beefed up at LT, and have added some good depth at WR and the OL. D Bowe signed his franchise tender. Things look promising but we will see. The preseason has looked good so far, against the Rams and Cardinals though, not exactly stiff competition. Cassell has completed 75% of his passes and Dexter McCluster looks like he is going to be hard to cover out of the slot. I think the team really likes playing for Romeo Crennel and will play hard for him. Got a new OC, Brian Daboll, last year he was in Miami and made Reggie Bush relevent (im sure you know about Mr. Bush). The year before he was in Cleveland, that was the year Hillis went beast mode on the league. Im optimistic.

I agree about Graham, hes a freak. There aint a LB or Safety in the league that can cover him. As long as he can get off the line hes gonna be better than good. How do you feel about no Sean Payton? Suspending Vilma for the year was crap, Goodell is an egomaniac.

Sodabowski – Same here. I will say this about the 2012/13 NFL season though.. I really feel the team that can consistently score the most points while allowing their opponent to score few points will take the whole thing.

I kind of like seeing Marshall and Cutler back together, even if they are a lil bit whiny. I thought Denver was on he right track with those 2. Urlacher will keep em in check, Forte is back …. could be good things comin outta Soldier Field Eric.

Joe… you are a football expert even if you don’t know it!

chrisstef: It’s hard to say how much they’ll miss Payton. The coaching staff has been together for a while with the exception of the new D coordinator, and Sean never messed with defense anyway. I don’t think it will be a huge factor.

I dont think so either Charlie, Brees might as well be the coach out there any way. He probably changes the play 60% of the time any way through audibles and checks at the line of scrimmage. When ya score 37 points a game defense dont matter much … unless your playin the Niners ;)

I’ll get my solid picks in about week 14. Should have a good idea of who’s doing what by then.

I like QB Luck of the Colts
QB Bust is Sanchez of the Jets
QB Beast Rogers, Green Bay

RB Beast is Forte
RB Bust is any Eagle player…......

I can’t pay attention to football. I’ve got the U.S. Pro Cycling Challenge. CT native Tommy Danielson team Garmin had a monster solo day yesterday.

Both of those guys are without a doubt in my top 4. I had Rodgers in one league and ran the table with him. Ray Rice is so solid because theres no timeshare with another good RB and he catchs a ton of balls. Hes fantasy gold.

So far im drafting:

2nd in the 12 man league
9th in the 10 man league

QB TD worth 6 in both.
0.5 PPR in the 10 man

Im always excited for FF. I agree with the difficulty of drafting players that aren’t on your team, my wife always hates when im ok with a player from my team scoring against my team. I remember a long TD run jonathan stewart had a few years ago against the saints that i didn’t hate

and the league is an awesome freaking show

Ben – We are going to use the trophy kind of like the Stanley Cup and pass it around to the winner of each year. We’ve put name plates aroudn the base for the winner of each year. The league is 5 years in and i figure weve got enough room for another 7 years before i have to make another one lol.

Here’s the final shot including the base, that apparently i never posted. The base is a piece of red oak salvaged from a church demo job we did, and the pyramid type thingy is from a souther yellow pine beam. Tutorial on how to cut that by LJ Jim Jakosh.

I like your squad Ben. People are jockin B Lloyd this year, i have him too. Robinson will produce for ya i think Blaine Gabbart will come around and the game will slow down for him a little.

Doug Martin is gonna be solid splittin carries with blount. Sproles is very solid, i love Ben Tate.

TE’s look solid.

14 man league is super deep.

One suggestion is Dexter Mccluster in a league like that hes been Matt Cassell’s favorite receiver this year and looks uncoverable outta the slot.

RB – Charles, S Jackson, David Wilson (NYG), Ryan Williams (AZ), Blount, Mccluster
WR: Lloyd, Steve Smith (Car), V Jax (TB), Blackmon, Doug Baldwin
TE – O Daniels
K – Hanson (Det)
Def – Philly

Here it is fellas .. opening night. Im ready to sit down with my little man and watch some football. Like anyoen else who plays this game, we double think our lineups. Post your questions.

W/R (flex) question: Standard League:

David Wilson, Dex McCluster, Steve Smith TB (coming of a foot infection, out for past 3 weeks), or Justin Blackmon?

My gut says play steve smith. My hopes wants Wilson to do well but hes a backup. My heart says McCluster being a chiefs fan.

As of right now im goign with my gut. What do you guys think?

Since I am from KC, I like the Chiefs too. Going to opening game this weekend. Unfortunately being a sports fan is KC is like an abusive relationship. Pain and misery, it is what we do.

McCluster is a tough one. Probably no red zone touchrs for the little guy given the size of our other receivers. So that really reduces him to breaking a long play. For a 2nd rd pick, he is kind of a flop. I will hope for a good season, but not hold my breath.

This is the 1st yr I have played ff w/o Rodgers as my qb. Kind of in shock. But, I did get Brees, so all is not lost.

Shane – thats awesome, opening day at arrowhead. Im wicked jealous. Ill make it there one day and when i do well catch a game. BBQ that $hit up!!

Pain and misery is right though. 1993 was a long long time ago.

I think mccluster was a tweaner in haleys system and no one knew what to do with him. That and haleys jocks steve breastons nuts Watching the preseason he seems unguardable in the slot. A lot like welker. Too fast for backers and safeties to cover. I really like brian daboll as OC. Hell he made reggie bush relative last year. Hes a creative guy.

No issue with brees as your qb hes gonna call all of his own plays with sean payton banned.

Ben – see what he does week 1 against atlanta. The chiefs may wanna slow this game down with dinks and dunks to keep atlantas offense off the field.

Im glad i didnt play wilson last night. He went for the negative french fry.
