Week 4 Gut Feelings

Three weeks into the 2016 season, we have found out my gut is very unreliable. Not just unreliable but horribly wrong and not to be trusted. I do think my gut gets a little break as I’m trying to dive deep…deep down in my gut where there is nothing good…deep into the place where no one else wants to go…the kind of gut feelings that, if they hit, would win a lot of money in daily fantasy.

Week three saw not one of my gut feelings come to fruition. Week three showed the unpredictable nature of fantasy football. The two best running backs were the two Atlanta running backs. Yes, two running backs on the same team set the pace in week three. If that wasn’t crazy enough, try these on for size: There was a Detroit wide receiver on top this week, and it wasn’t Calvin Johnson. A Cleveland wide receiver cracked the top four. There was a Rams wide receiver inside the top 10, the same Rams that did not score an offensive touchdown through the first two weeks. Also, the first five wide receivers drafted in the Grown Mens’ League were all outside the top ten. The top ten QBs in week three contained three rookie quarterbacks and a back-up journeyman. Why do we even put ourselves through this agony and misery?

The Ravens rushing attack has been crap. That’s right, just a big old stinky log. The coaches have came out and said they need to get the rushing game going. There are plenty of options to chose from in their crowded backfield now that Kenneth Dixon is back at practice. But the man to lead the rushing attack in week four will be Javouris Allen. Yes the same Javouris Allen that hasn’t even been active on a Sunday yet.

Week four brings the first London game of the year. Indy will have their first across-the-pond experience, against the Jaguars. The Jags have been disappointing from top to bottom, bu this is the week things start to look up. Blake Bortles will be a top-five quarter back. Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns will be top-fifteen wide receivers. The run game…well the running game will stay on the bottom. The fourth-best quarterback from last year will go back to his gunslinger ways and just maybe save his coach his job.

Rex Ryan always does just enough to save his career. But man does he know how to get his team pumped up for certain games. Look at week three for a prime example. Now he gets to go to Foxboro where there is magic in the air. Bill Belichick has just gone old school and ran the ball down his oppents throats with Blount. 3-0 is better then everyone thought the Patriots would do without Brady, and Gron’s been out on top of that. So it would be ok to lose one right? Wrong. The Bill Belichick’s tricks will come to light this week, and James White will be the best running back in the week-four match-up between the Patriots and Bills.

Amari Cooper has been quiet in 2016 through three weeks. A two-point conversion and consistant play from Micheal Crabtree has him one point better on the season then Cooper. In week 4, Amari Cooper will separate himself has the clear number-one wide reciver on the team. Cooper will go for a hundred-plus yards and two touch downs.

The race for last place in the NFC North will be in full tilt in week four. The Lions travel to Soldier Field. Both teams have been forced to move back-up running backs into the starting roll. The rookies will try to take the job and run with it. Ha ha! See what I did there? Run with it…I crack myself up. Dwayne Washington is on a team that would like to not even run the ball if they were honest with themselves. Jordan Howard is on a team trying to find a identity. I beilive both of them are solid this week. Jordan Howard is ranked eighteenth and Washington comes in at thirtieth. Washington will have the better fantasy day and both will be top-fifteen plays in week four.

The number-one fantasy quarter back through three weeks is Matt Ryan. Experts say trade Matt Ryan if you can get anything for him. They say sell, sell, sell all your Falcons players (except Julio of course. Unless someone makes you a offer you can’t refuse, you do not ever sell Julio Jones.) Cam Newton is bruised and battered after his eight sacks against the Vikings in week three. You think he’s mad? You think the Panthers as a team aren’t pissed about getting trucked at home? Bad news for the Falcons right? Wrong. Stay in the flames of Matt Ryan. Cam Newton may easily be the top quarterback in week four but Matt Ryan will also be a top-five option in week 4…and moving forward.

Jordan Reed. Oh, Jordan Reed. Number eighty-six where have you been? The tight end drafted number two in 2016 is currently ranked as the sixteenth tight end. It’s a get-right week. Jordan Reed will eat in week four. Top tight end.

What has happened to the Arizona Cardinals? The top offensive output in 2015 just got a good old fashion butt whooping by the hideous Buffalo Bills. It started off looking so good, as Larry Fitzgerald caught everything thrown his way. David Johnson has been a soldier for fantasy purposes but hasn’t helped the Cardinals in the win/lose column. This is also a get-right week. The Cardinals will get right. The Cardinals get to play at home against the Rams, always a tough divisional match-up. Eight and eight Jeff Fisher needs to get to his .500 record on this season. John Brown saw an increased work load in week three, and he will help stretch the defense out in this game. Larry Fitzgerald, Micheal Floyd, John Brown, and David Johnson will all have at least a hundred receiving yards.

So now that we know none of this is gonna happen, make sure to change your line ups accordingly. 😉 There are many numbers and much data to decide who to start and sit. I don’t know the percentage of times that all those numbers and data are actually right but it can’t be very high. We love football because of the human side. Depending on how a guy slept, how his finances are, how his sex life is, maybe what he had for breakfast…it will effect him. So sometimes it’s better to try to look outside the box. But we see how well that has worked for me. Seriously, if you have a gut feeling, don’t be afraid to go for if. It could win you your week. If it doesn’t, guess what, it’s just a game. Yeah, I look like a moron all the times I’m not even in the ballpark on a gut feeling. The times I hit one though are gonna be super cool. And if you follow your gut one week and go against the grain it could be one of the best stories you’ll have. Most importantly you’ll always have the story to throw in your buddy’s face, the story of beating his or her ass with a diamond in the rough.

Week 3 gut feelings

Week 2 is in the books. There were some surprise performers, some consistent, some so-so, and some outright bad. Fantasy football is awesome for this very reason.  We start the year with so many stats and numbers regarding last year’s performances and projections of what might be in the coming year, then we watch as the actuals unfold. It’s still a little early in the year for trends to have taken full effect and heck, trends are always meant to be broken and changed. But so far, through two weeks of gut feelings I’m 2 for 16 in my predictions. To be honest, that’s better then I thought I would be. To dig a little deeper and to look at some of my own trends, I nailed Matt Forte being the number 1 RB of the week. And darn it, Corey Coleman was not only a top 20 WR but a top a 4 WR. Both of these predictions just happened to be a week early. So if there Is a trend to my gut being a week off, let me adjust and say this: look for Marcus Mariota to be a top 10 QB, Drew Brees to throw for 400 yards and 4 TDs, Tyrrell Williams to post 100-plus yards and a TD (which he almost hit in week 2), and Ezekiel Elliott to be the number 1 fantasy RB of the week.

Five receptions for 104 yards and 2 TDs. This was Corey Coleman’s line from week 2. He had whatever QB the Browns picked up off the corner that morning throwing to him. Corey Coleman posted those numbers against a suspicious Ravens secondary. This week a highly drafted, yet underperforming player gets a chance to turn his season  around against the same Ravens’ secondary. Allen Robinson gets to take on that Ravens team that allowed a back-up QB and a rookie WR to look like hall-of-famers. Allen Robinson is projected as the 4th WR of week 3, but his fantasy owners can sleep soundly knowing their investment is about to cash in. Allen Robinson will be the top WR in week 3.

Odell Beckham Jr. vs. Josh Norman rematch. Football doesn’t get much better than when you see real emotion from the players. Okay, they went too far last year, looking like they were about to fist fight on national television. With the new rules in place this year will they both even make it through the game? Besides good TV, there will be fantasy implications. Looking at the Giants’, Odell Beckham Jr. is the 3rd-ranked among all WRs, Sterling Shepard is ranked 26th, and Victor Cruz is 44th. As the heavyweight belt is going down between Norman and Beckham Jr., I’ll be looking for dancing. Salsa dancing, that is. Victor Cruz will be the best fantasy receiver on either team when the Giants face the Redskins.

Let’s play Who Am I: I was drafted in the first round in fantasy football drafts, but I’m ranked 37th at my position entering week 3. I have 20-plus fewer points than Melvin Gordon, Isiah Crowell, and undrafted Spencer Ware. I have a 2-week total of 10 fantasy points. Who am I? I’m Todd Gurley. No way! Yes, this is all true, and as I said, I could have given you plenty more names of guys ahead of him (33, to be exact). Happily, I do not own one share of Todd Gurley in the 2016 season. For that alone I am truly thankful. The Rams suck, their schedule sucks, and Todd Gurley will not be able to do anything about it single-handedly. What do you do as a Todd Gurley owner?  The pine is a good option this week. Put him in the flex, at best. Gurley will be on the outside looking in on the top 20 RBs again in week 3.

Marcus Mariota will end up being a top-10 QB. That means he will need to throw the ball a good amount, and successfully. Tajae Sharpe has 18 targets in 2 weeks. Sharpe and Mariota will connect, as Oakland has handed out receptions and yards like candy on Halloween. Tajae Sharpe is ranked 30th on the week; he will end up top-10. Amari Cooper could get himself in to the top 10 as well, as this could turn into a shoot-out down in Tennessee.

In week 2, the Jets almost had three 100-yard receivers and added a 100-yard rusher. This week they visit Kansas City as the Chiefs welcome Jamaal Charles back into the lineup. Minus Charles, the Chiefs are not known for fantasy output, but in week 3 in Arrowhead stadium they will have a performance like the Jets had last week. Maclin, Kelce, and Ware will all have 100 receiving yards and Ware will add the 100 yards rushing. Charles will be limited. Okay, this prediction is admittedly a stretch. There is not a chance of this happening against even a soft match-up, let alone the Jets. But it will be fun to see how close it gets.

Ryan Tannehill has had some huge fantasy performances, just enough and just frequest enough to always have the fantasy industry talking about him. He gets the Browns this week. Of course everyone and their mom is on him to have a big week. I wanted to go the route of him falling on his face and being dreadful but if I’m staying true to my gut, I belive Ryan Tannehill will the the best QB in week 3. Look for Tannehill and Devante Parker to have a great game.

The Bengals get to host the Broncos, against whom WR production dies. The Packers get to host the resurgent-gone-bad Lions. For the Bengals, A.J. Green is looking for redemption from a bad week 2. For the Packers, Jordy Nelson is trying prove why we drafted him in the top three rounds. The rankings slide A.J. in at 14 and Jordy in at 5 for week 3. I want to say they will both be outside top 15 at WR, but I will just go with A.J. Green out-performing Jordy Nelson in fantasy points in week 3.

Monday night will decide many fantasy battles in week 3. It will possibly win people thousands of dollars in daily fantasy. Matt Ryan, undrafted in almost all ten-team leagues, is now the number 1 fantasy QB. Drew Brees is number 4. Inside the dome in New Orleans they should both be awsome plays. But let’s take a step sideways and look at the tight end situation. One was drafted as the 6th tight end off the board. The other was virtually undrafted as the 19th tight end. One has 16 targets on the year, the other 12. One is the 6th best tight end through two weeks and the other is, well there are way too many to count before you find Coby Fleener. That’s right: Jacob Tamme of the Atlanta Falcons, nearly undrafted, is currently the 4th-best tight end in standard-scoring leagues, while highly regarded Coby Fleener has been a non-factor. We have seen the fantasy goodness of tight ends in New Orleans, but do the Coby Fleener owners have the guts to start him? Heck do they have the guts to keep him on their roster? I myself am a Gronk drafter wherever I can so I don’t have any Coby Fleener this year, but look at the positive: any tight end who gets on the field is better than an injured Gronk. Week 3 at the Superdome will see both tight ends post top-5 scores. Will you have the guts to keep them in your line ups?

Well, here is to hoping for the best in week 3. May you see the path to the pot at the end of the rainbow filled with fantasy points. There are many ways to get there. Do you trust obvious, go-to match ups? Do you need to throw some back-ups in because of injury? Can you get yourself to leave a guy in your lineup who has done nothing for you so far? Do you need to throw a hail mary to not get the dreaded L? Whatever the situation, there are many paths to a fantasy victory. Finding that path is what makes this game so damn fun.

Week 2 Gut Feelings

Week 1 is in the books. There was plenty of excitement on the field: high scoring games, overtime, and a 2-point conversion for the win. Wow! NFL is back and I personally am pumped. With all the excitement on the real field, it made the virtual field just as exciting. Plenty of fantasy gems, even more fantasy heart breaks. In the Grown Men’s League we had one match-up come down to the Sunday night game and 2 match-ups come down to the Monday contest. Did I mention week 1 was exciting? What made the week the best was Monday night’s Battle of California. One starting RB drafted in the first round and one drafted in the fourth round. I said that 4th-rounder would out-score the 1st rounder on the virtual field. It was not even close as Carlos Hyde showed Todd Gurley what a 1st-round fantasy pick is supposed to do. Hey, 1 out of 8 isn’t bad.

Before I state my week-two gut feelings I need to put something to bed. As I write these next few sentences I ask you to imagine some nice soft slow sad music. Mr. Robert Griffin III…hmmm. I had faith that your stock would be restored. When you first arrived on the scene in 2012 I was the first to draft you. We had such a wonderful time. As you racked up 3,200 passing yards and 20 touchdowns, you added 120 rushing attempts for 815 yards and 7 touchdowns. Hmmm…it was good. It was nice. It was Beautiful! Three years passed and I continued to draft you. You landed in Cleveland with a fresh start. There was hope. Even a little national positivity. I drafted you in 2016 Mr. Robert Griffin III. And then I dropped you one week into the 2016 season as you suffered yet another injury. Alas, this is goodbye, Robert Griffin III. You will never see my roster again. I will always remember the times we shared but in this relationship, it is definitely you and not me.

And now to my gut feelings.

Antonio Brown vs A.J. Green. Does anyone really care? Not me because neither are on my fantasy team. I don’t think anyone expects anything less than greatness from these two. And if they don’t, no one will feel bad for you because you still have Antonio Brown or A.J. Green on your team. In week 1 Big Ben put up 22 fanatsy points and is ranked as the 7th QB in week 2. Andy Dalton put up 16 fantasy points in week 1 and is ranked as the 14th QB in week 2. Because of A.J. Green, Andy Dalton will go into Pittsburgh  and have the better fanatsy day.

The Titans have come out this year trying to run people over. They run exotic smash mouth. Demarco Murray will have another good week but Marcus Mariota will be the story here, as he becomes a top-10 QB this week, despite being projected as the 18th.

With Keenan Allen out for the season, can someone step up to be fanatsy-relevant for San Diego? Last year when Allen went out no one decided they wanted to take the reins. Tyrrell Williams (who?) will take a shot. In week 2, he will have over 100 yards and a touchdown. We’ll see if it lasts.

The Lions are at home for the first time this year. Lions fans have seen what bad football is. Is there excitement back in Detroit? Maybe for a handful of fans. The Lions under Jim Bob Cooter have been productive and effective. Vegas has an over/under of 47.5 for their week 2 match-up, and they are favored by 6. I say the Lions disappoint once again. They will not only lose, but not score over 20 points.

Drew Brees had over 400 yards and 4 touchdowns in week 1, yet he has a bad track record outdoors. Forget all that. He just got paid. He has all types of weapons. Drew Brees will put up 400-plus passing yards and 4 touchdowns. Watch out for Coby Fleener.

Ezekiel Elliott! Number one RB in ESPN standard leagues in week 2. Enough said.

Is this 2015? The 49ers looked like a team to be reckoned with in the black jerseys while stomping the Vikings in 2015. 2016 started with a bang once again for the 49ers, who held the Rams to 0 points. (No, I don’t know if the Rams are actually qualified to be called an NFL franchise but 0 points is 0 points.) Despite the shutout, the Niners are getting no respect as they head to Carolina, being 14-point underdogs. The 49ers will win. Not! But they’ll beat the spread.

As I try to improve on a 1 and 8 start in my guy feelings, I want it to be known that just because I have a gut feeling doesn’t mean I will personally act on it. In my first smack post of the year I stated I’m out for the points leader trophy this year, and if that means going against my gut then so be it. With one week of data to draw from, do you follow the numbers or your gut?

Week 1 Gut Feelings

As we get ready for the full slate of Sunday’s games and look over our rosters…and relook….and stress over their match ups, I’d like to share some of my gut feelings.

Can Corey Coleman be a top 20 WR this week? Does anyone have faith in the Browns (mostly RGIII)? I know one person who does, and that is I! The eagles defense has been week at times, especially to the number 1 WR of opposing teams. Maybe they will be better with an offense geared more toward time of possession, but I have faith in a new-look Cleveland Browns team. Lock Corey Coleman in as a top option this week.

How about Frank Gore? Yes, he may be old as the dinosaurs. No, he is not a super sexy or bold choice in fantasy. The Colts and Lions have one of the highest over-unders of the week. So Vegas says lots of points will be scored. Vegas is never wrong…right? With everyone excited about the WRs in this match up, I say Frank Gore—currently ranked by ESPN as the 16th RB—cracks the top 5 on the week.

Speaking of Vegas, there is no separation between the Cowboys and Giants on the consensus odds board. Even Vegas is on board the Dak train! I think Dak Prescott is a top-10 fantasy QB this week.

Back to old running backs: how about one that was there for the taking in the middle rounds of the draft, Matt Forte. Not a great match up for Forte, but the Bengals are just middle of the road for fanatsy points given up to running backs. If these old running backs can’t do it when they’re fresh, then when? Matt Forte will work the early-season legs and finish the top RB this week.

They say start all your Oakland Raiders against the Saints. I agree because I believe the Saints jump out to an early lead in the Superdome. The Raiders will be throwing to catch up. Latavis Murray is currently ranked at RB11 on ESPN; I say he finishes outside the top 20 in standard scoring.

I think everyone and their moms have writing off the Chicago Bears this year. They might not have many wins on the year but that doesn’t mean there isn’t fanatsy gold to be had. Alshon Jeffery will out-score DeAndre Hopkins this week.

Doug Martin is good right? There were 24 RBs drafted in between Doug Martin and backup Charles Sims. The Falcons are notorious for giving it up to pass-catch backs. Charles Sims will out-score Doug Martin.

Yes, Monday night football! One of the highlights of the week. A true battle of excellent talent, and the first chance to see if the Todd Gurley hype is true. But I belive the Niners’ Chip Kelly has some magic left in that play book of his, which will benefit Carlos Hyde. I say Hyde  will out-perform the consensus number 1 RB in fantasy points, week 1.

Here’s to the first Sunday in the 2016 season!

Jeremiah’s 2016 Bold Predictions

So there are bold predictions by a lot of different people each NFL season. My league mates in the Grown Men’s League would agree that I’m not scared to be bold on the fanatsy football field. I’ll roll out players that no one believes in, take RGIII, for example. I’ll not play a defense or a kicker just to hold a player on my bench or to make sure I don’t get negative points. I love to have fun each week and roll the dice, which is the main reason I have never been any where close to the points leader in any of my fantasy leagues. But I love this game we play and will continue to do bold things week in and week out. In that spirit, here are my bold predictions for all 32 NfL teams in 2016.

Minnesota Vikings: The starting quarterback for the Minnesota Vikings will throw over 28 touchdowns. In 2015 Teddy Bridgwater had 14. With Bridgewater out, Minnesota will now face teams crowding the box. This will give the Vikes the opportunity to open up the downfield coverage.

Green Bay Packers: Eddy Lacy will have his best statistical year. He will have more then 1200 rushing yards and double-digit touchdowns. In 2013, Eddy Lacy had 1178 yards and 11 tds. In 2014 he had 1139 yards and 9 tds. 2015 was even worse, with 758 yards and 3 tds. This is the year Eddie finds his groove.

Chicago Bears: Jeremy Langford will have over 1000 rushing yards, 50-plus receptions, and double-digit touchdowns, far out-performing his Sept. 1 ESPN standard ADP.

Detroit Lions: The Detroit Lions are rejuvenated under Jim Bob Cooter. Lots of people belive in Mathew Stafford this year so I won’t go there. Instead, my prediction will focus on the WR/RB corps. The Lions will have 3 top-25 fantasy players between those two positions: Golden Tate and Marvin Jones, WR,  and Ameer Abdullah, RB. All three will be top-25 in their positins by the end of the year.

Atlanta Falcons: Devonta Freeman will break Matt Forte’s single-season RB reception record of 102. Freeman had 73 receptions in 2015, but Atlanta sucks, period, and will be down in a lot of games and will be throwing a lot.

Carolina Panthers: Devin Funchess will be the best fantasy WR on the team. He will beat Kelvin Benjamin’s 1008 yards and 9 TDs in 2014.

New Orleans Saints: C.j. Spiller is fantasy relevant again? Well maybe not relevant, but he’s gonna catch some balls this year. Spiller will have more than 50 receptions after racking up 34 in 2015. Spiller will also have more receptions than Mark Ingram this year.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Jameis Winston will have over 5000 passing yards. His 2015 total was 4042.

Dallas Cowboys: I know Jerry Jones has a man crush on Tony Romo but that will be over. His eye will turn towards Dak. Tony Romo will never start another game in Dallas.

New York Giants: O’Dell Beckham Jr. will set the new record for receiving yards in an NFL season, breaking the 2000-yard mark. Calvin Johnson holds the record with 1964 yards in 2012.

Piladelphia Eagles: The Carson Wentz-lead eagles will win the divison. They will have to win week 16 against the Giants and week 17 against the Cowboys, but both games are at home.

Washington Redskins: Rob Kelly will be the third-best fantasy rookie running back. That’s all.

Arizona Cardinals: I stole this bold prediction from the Fantasy Footballers but I like it: David Johnson will break Darren Sproles’ single-season all-purpose yards of 2696. Since I stole that one I’ll throw in this one: Michael Floyd will have the most receiving TDs this year by a WR.

Los Angeles Rams: Tavon Austin will tie Devin Hester’s single season kick/punt return for TD record. In 2007, Devin Hester had 4 kick returns and 2 punt returns for touchdowns. What else do the Rams really have to look forward to?

San Francisco 49ers: Vance McDonald will have 800-plus yards and 8 TDs. Chip Kelly’s 3 years in Philly produced good numbers for Zach Ertz and Brent Celek. Their 3-year average together was 1088 yards and 6.3 TDs. Vance McDonald will far out-perform is ADP. This year’s Gary Barnidge?

Seattle Seahawks: Will miss the playoffs. What? Holy #$%@!!! Really? Yes. They will not win their division.

Baltimore Ravens: Will win their division. Little cherry on top: Mike Wallace will have double-digit TDs.

Cincinnati Bengals: A.J. Green will have the most receptions in the NFL in 2016. In 2015, Antonio Brown and Julio Jones tied with 136 receptions. Green will end with more.

Cleveland Browns: Let’s be honest the Browns would be the favorite for last place in the divison. But I beilive. What the I belive in truly with the Browns is yet unclear but RG3 will be a top 12 fantasy qb. His adp is qb 25 going at 132 overall. Not enough? Isiah Crowell will be a top 20 rb. His adp is 41 among rb and 123 over all. You heard it hear first and let’s be honest I’m the only one stupid enough to say something like that.

Pittsburg Steelers: I want to come up with something here but big Ben has done alot of impressive stuff. Antonio Brown well he’s Antonio Brown. They also have a pretty awsome rb named Bell. So I’ll just follow suit…Pittsburg will make the super bowl but they have to get there as a wild card.

Houston Texans: The Texans have alot of new faces. So not much data to support a hole lot. I’m just going to say DeAndre Hopkins is outside the top 10 at wr in fantasy.

Indianapolis Colts: Donte Moncrief will be the best fantasy wr on the Colts. In 2015 T.Y. Hilton had 69 receptions 1124 yards and 5 tds. Same year Moncrief had 64 receptions 733 yards and 6 tds. T.Y. Hilton adp is 17 among wr and Moncrief is going 26th.

Jacksonville Jaguars: This team will double there rushing total from 2015. 5! 5 rushing tds for the hole Jaguars offense. 2 for Yeldon. 1 for Denard Robinson. 2 for Blake Bortles. Can they get 10 rushing tds as a team?

Tennessee Titans: Somewhere among thr pack of wr this team has assembled will come a top 25 fantasy wr. The first wr taken in fantasy drafts is at we 54. 133 over all.

Buffalo Bills: Sammy Watkins will be the number 2 fantasy wr. Let’s be honest if Beckham gets over 2000 yards he’ll be number 1. Sammy missed 4 games last year. In his 12 games he played he only had 4 games will 6 or more catches. In those games he scored 74 fanatsy points. Project that over 16 games he would have been the number 1 wr last year. Just feed him the rock!

Sidenote: Yes I happen to have the wr being drafted at 54 at wr from the Titans and Sammy Watkins. I’m not biased.

Miami Dolphins: Arian Foster will play all 16 games! I beilive that may be the boldest bold yet.

New England Patriots: So Jason talks alot of smack about not drafting Mr. Gronk. But as he had said Nicole Holand now know as Gronk a holic was the number 1 seed in the playoffs. She did not come away with the ultimate prize but hey who doesn’t want to be the number 1 seed. In 2011 Mr. Gronk had 90 receptions 1327 yards and 17 tds. Yes 17tds! He will break all those numbers in 2016!

New York Jets: Ryan Fitzpatrick had a career year last year. He will one up himself. We will throw over 40 tds in 2016. No goal lone back. And Brandon Marshall has a bet to win.

Denver Broncos: Virgil Green will be a top 10 tight end. He is being drafted 24th among tight ends. 170the over all. Undrafted that is. This year’s Gary Barnidge? Yes I asked that about Vance McDonald but if I pick 2 tight ends I have a better shot at being right.

Kansas City Cheifs: Alex Smith had a 1000 yard recover in 2015. Do it again? Maybe have 2 1000 yard receivers? Travis Kelce will be run away number 2 tight end in fantasy. In 2015 he had 875 yards and 5 tds. He will break 1000 yards and 8 tds. Hey he’s not a wr but he would make to players with 1000 receiving yards.

Oakland Raiders: I wanted to come up with something for Amari Cooper or maybe Derek Carr. Hey they got a rookie rb that has alot of hype. Even Murray could do some good things in that offense. I just say the Raiders end up last in the divison. Just because they are Oakland and I’m a Vikings fan that likes to see other teams be bad.

San Diego Chargers: Phillip Rivers will have more then 5476 passing yards. That would put him second on the the list for most passing yards in a season. I don’t want him to take down Payton Manning record so I gave him second. In 2015 Rivers had his most passing ever with 4792.

Yes fanatsy is a stupid game. It’s the stupid game that I love. It brings us together. Plain and simple it’s fun. I love numbers and stats but it’s so much more fun to be bold. So hopefully I maybe hit on one of my picks because that would just be awsome! More then anything this list just shows how fun this game is. Anything is possible and don’t be afraid to be bold.

We’re Live

This is the 2014 champ Crown. Well Crown Roof because I can’t just have crown on espn site. I want to let the Grown Men’s League—and the world I guess—know that Crown Roof will be a force to be reckoned with. While all my fellow league mates are just trying to reach the top of the mountain, I have much higher standards. Former champ: check. Best record in a season: check. Just all around a top notch guy: check. Well I made enough kids must not be all that bad. But my sites are on a trophy, like a man running with anger and a vengeance. A trophy for points leader. A trophy to soon be engraved, well just a cheap little name plate but whatever, with the Crown name. #pointsleader #Crownroof
