I dont know about you all but I have "The Itch" for some fantasy football already and it is not even June, damn it is going to be a long summer. I just love Sundays when I can sit back, put on the NFL Redzone Channel, and watch when the players on my fantasy teams tear it up like a fat guy (myself included) at a buffet! I usually get into atleast 2 or 3 leagues every season... So anyways, I have been thinking about the upcoming season and had a couple questions, or ideas I guess, that I wanted to throw out to yall and see what you think.
In one of my leagues last year I was lucky enough to get Aaron Rodgers in the 2nd round and he basically won me the league, dudes the man. My other league I had Romo as my QB and he ended up getting hurt for the season. I picked up Shaun Hill to replace him, and to be honest I was VERY SURPRISED at the points he got me, which is what lead me to this question. If Hill do so well fantasy wise last year, imagine what a 100% healthy Matt Stafford will do? I am really debating just loading up on my RB's and WR's for like the first 6 or 7 rounds and then drafting Stafford as my QB. The dude has the makings this year to be atleast a top 7 QB, if not a top 5 and that would be a huge steal. Whats your thoughts? Apparently NFL.COM has similar thoughts as I do.
The other question is about Arian Foster. I did my homework last year watching him during the preseason and was able to draft him in the 5th round in both of my leagues. I think yall know how that paid off... but can he do it again this year. I just feel that a healthy Ben Tate is way to talented to keep on the bench and will be competing with Foster for touches, which would really be a kick in the dick. As of now I think I will be staying away from Foster if I am drafting in the top, maybe leaning towards A.P. or Jamaal Charles! Thoughts?
Thanks guys, and I apologize if I got you all geeked up like I am. I have been drinking FFL Koolaid since the draft ended. Takes my mind off this Lockout. Lets just hope this damn CBA gets settled and we can actually have a season next year!
