• You want to hang your draft board where exactly?

    by  • August 8, 2008 • 1 Comment

    I did a guest post for The Hazean yesterday covering how to choose the right environment for your fantasy football draft. Read all about the pros and cons of each location at The Hazean.

    Fantasy football drafts are a sacred thing, so you should always be mindful to have them on hallowed ground. With the right environment, you can establish the perfect balance of order and all out mayhem for your draft and league—assuring your name will go down in fantasy football history.

    I somehow managed to reference both hookers and midgets in the same post without talking about midget hookers. I don’t know how I do it. It just comes off these fingers and onto the computer screen.

    My first draft of this article was just “AVOID THE HOUSTON RUNNING BACKS AT ALL COSTS. The end.” While contemplating whether to put that in bold or change the text to some nice shade of red, I realized my very intelligent warning doesn’t help you much. Many people, through bad luck, absent-mindedness or sadistic...

    Training Camp Uppers and Downers

    by  • August 4, 2008 • 5 Comments

    It’s almost football season. Training camp battles are starting, Favre is reinstated and back as an active player (which means he is thinking about retiring) and coins are flipping in Chicago to decide who will throw the rock for 2008.

    The Incredible Depth at Running Back in 2008

    by  • July 31, 2008 • 13 Comments

    If you followed along with my recent expert draft, you saw me pass on taking a lot of depth at running back (RB) in the early rounds. Only in the later rounds did I really flesh out the RB position on my team. Taking Tom Brady in the first round certainly didn’t help me...

    The Jason Taylor trade that was rumored but always “danced around” by the Dolphins seemed like it was never going to happen until it did on Sunday. Little did we know yesterday that the bigger fantasy football news was still to come this week. The other much-rumored trade of disgruntled New York Giant Jeremy...

    2008 Offseason NFL Fantasy Quarterback Rankings

    by  • June 24, 2008 • 13 Comments

    Prompted by many an unruly quarterback (QB) ranker online these days, I’ve compiled my current top 12 list of fantasy QBs. For the most part, I base these rankings off of projected stats for 2008, but considering these top 12 are also going to be the first QBs you want to draft, reliability and...
