Topic tags/keywords: fantasy football

I was just kind of curious as to how many LJ’s out there participate in fantasy football. Me personally, i geek out during fantasy football season, dont even talk to me on Sunday morning as i set my lineups. Ive got 3 teams in 3 different leagues. A 12 man, a 10 man, and an 8 man leagues.

So here it is, spout your knowledge, your sleepers, your busts, your beasts and your predictions for the 2012 fantasy football season.

QB Sleeper of the year: Andrew Luck
QB Bust of the year: Cam Newton
QB Beast of the year: Tom Brady

RB Sleeper: Donald Brown (Im a Uconn homer)
RB Bust: Arian Foster
RB Beast: Chris Johnson

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” ;)

I didn’t say better, she does more :). I haven’t posted any of mine yet other than my first. I’ll take my -2 points though. I’ve earned them.

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.

Write that down

I love the Bears but don’t dabble to much in the F/F leagues.
Drew Breeze is what’s going to hold your team together this year Charlie.
it’s too bad about that bounty business.

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.
