    Brandon Lloyd, Fred Davis, and The 2012 Quarterback Craze

    I’m late to the party, but Lance Zierlein of The Sideline View hosted this Google+ Hangout with two of the great minds in fantasy football, Sigmund Bloom and Matt Waldman, to discuss the most overrated and underrated players as we close out the 2012 fantasy football draft season.

    Their conversation touches on early hype for quarterbacks this season, Dallas Cowboys concerns, and why you should avoid taking wide receivers in the first two rounds. I also like what Zierlein, Waldman, and Bloom say about Brandon Lloyd as they break down the Patriots 2012 offense considering Lloyd was one of my big targets this year.

    If you still have any drafts, there are a few strategy points made throughout this video, including drafting based on how you value a player rather than consensus value, which is something you have to learn if you want to get the guys you really like on your roster. It’s lengthy but worth the watch as you prepare for your final drafts or evaluate your roster for the season ahead.
