Top NFL Players week 13

Most fantasy football leagues are over for their regular season, and it’s off to the playoffs. Some have a week to go, depending on how your league manager configured things. Either way, it’s been fun to review the top 5 this year, and I’ll continue to do so while the NFL season is still going on.

8 months ago, would we have seen the #1 overall pick go completely crazy like he has all year long? If it wasn’t starting off the first 2 weeks throwing for 900 yards, then it was running in touchdowns to make Michael Vick look more like Tim Tebow. Cam has done it, despite what we all thought before. He’s shown up in 9 out of the past 12 top-10 blog posts. Woah.

I’m proud that my San Francisco 49ers clinched the first division title of 2011, and just hours later my Green Bay Packers followed Suit, when my New Orleans Saints defeated the Detroit Lions who were close enough to keep the Packers from locking it up.

Miami is still in the running for a grand prize of Andrew Luck, but their latest Quarterback dominated this past weekend, and is out to show people that he’s an every week starter. Believable, or not? The Saints’ old running back on that team proved that he isn’t a bye-week fill-in, either. And, doubling his touchdown total for the season, The Chargers’ top receiver makes the statement to everyone that he is on top. Good luck with the remainder of your fantasy season, and..  Continue reading “Top NFL players week 9” Top NFL players week 9

Top 5 Fantasy Football QBs to draft right now

Last week I made a post on the top 5 quarterbacks I wouldn’t want to draft, either because you’re going to draft them earlier than they are worth, or because they are too unstable or have competition fighting for their job.

Over my last 3 seasons of Fantasy Football, I have had Drew Brees (2008, top QB, and 2009 Superbowl winner) and Aaron Rodgers (2009/2010, #2 QB and Superbowl win in 2010). Now that both players are first or second round pickups, and I find value that is similar in other players beyond those rounds, here’s where I am ranking my pickups.  Continue reading “Top 5 Fantasy Football QBs to draft right now” Top 5 Fantasy Football QB…
