Fantasy football players are also ready to go all-in on Thursday night. Finding favorable matchups in the first game on the schedule each week gives a player a big edge going into Sunday.
Tony Romo. Romo has a ton of value but not a 6th round pick, according to Hernandez he is more of a 7th round or 8th round pick. The offense could be decent this year under there new offensive coordinator. The only thing that really needs to catch up is there defense with the injury list, especially Sean Lee with a knee injury.
Building off of the belief that quarterbacks are at a surplus in most drafts, it may make sense to take a third running back and wait until the double-digit rounds to select a signal-caller. “I’m not taking a QB until the 10th or 11th round. You look at Andy Dalton, and he gets overlooked. He’s lest risk than a Griffin, Wilson, or even Kaepernick,” said Zalis.
You don’t need to be a fantasy football guru to know you shouldn’t draft a back-up quarterback. This is especially true if the back-up in question failed to beat out Brian Hoyer for the starting job.
In-season roster management is key to winning your fantasy football league, but the draft goes a long way towards determining the champ. Value is the most important word when it comes to the draft. Here are a few tips to stay a few moves ahead of your competitors.
Let’s not kid ourselves: a kicker is not going to win you a fantasy title. But in a tight match-up, you’ll take all the points you can get. All of these players are last-round selections, but you might as well have a strategy for crafting your kicker rankings.
One of last year’s top fantasy receivers, Josh Gordon, is facing a season-long suspension, but there are still plenty of talented wideouts to choose from. These players are studs no matter the scoring system.
Quarterbacks are breaking records left and right in the pass-happy NFL, but that makes high-caliber running backs all the more valuable. Many of last season’s top performers appear on this list, but keep in mind there’s usually a major bust or two, likely due to the heavy workload of the position causing a hangover effect.
If you’re not only ranking players, but also grouping them in tiers, tight ends are an interesting test case. Jimmy Graham is a one-man tier, with Gronkowski and Julius Thomas, both potential second-round picks, in the next group.
Will new “points of emphasis,” which may limit how defensive backs defend receivers, affect the physical Seahawks? Check back at midseason for an answer. For now, there’s no reason to think the Seahawks will surrender the top spot.
It’s a poorly-kept secret that the Seattle Seahawks don’t mind taking a penalty flag or two for pass interference or defensive holding in exchange for five or six no-calls on borderline plays. Supposedly, the NFL will be cracking down on physical play in the defensive backfield. If true-and that’s a big if-it could mean even bigger numbers for the quarterbacks.
The NFL preseason is an all important part of preparing for your draft. Sure, anybody can grab a big name top 5 RB in the 1st round & a 1st tier QB with their 2nd pick or vice versa , BUT who do you choose with with the 10th pick in the 6th round? That’s where the the Fantasy Football Champions make their mark & that’s why the preseason is important .
