    Hey! Shush you, your beatdown is coming.

    Yeah, I usually do 1 pay League a year and that shiz is always stressful and not nearly as carefree and fun.

    $400 pot?

    Shiz just got real?

    lulz, I like your moxy but we both know how this is going to end. All I ask is that after having your ass handed to you, you have the cojones to shake my hand afterward and we can continue being friends.

    10 Teams actually, so $500. And we're all buddies so there was loads of trash talking at the draft tonight.

    It also has a unique format, I think. You have to start 2 QB's, 3 RBs & WR's (each), 2 TE's and a flex (with a kicker and defense of course) so quarterbacks go kinda early cause people go after the superstars.

    I waited on my quarterbacks and just annihilated the league (much like I did to Knockout Kings last year and will this year).

    My starting line up is...
    Tony Romo (got in the 8th round)
    Carson Palmer
    CJ Spiller
    LeSean McCoy
    Chris Johnson
    Dez Bryant
    Dwayne Bowe
    Antonio Brown
    Jordan Cameron
    Zack Sudfeld

    And I got Daryl Richardson, D'Angelo Williams, TY Hilton, and Josh Gordon on the bench. :BA

    You won. You dominated nothing, my son. You certainly won't be dominating OR winning the League THIS season.

    i have to say, I am immensely glad I picked you up last season. I brought you into this world and I WILL take you out of it.

    So we just had our Fantasy Football draft. Here is my team. I loved my first few rounds and feel like I struggled a lot after that, but I'm not that diverse in my football knowledge.

    Thoughts?

    QB
    Colin Kaepernick
    Andy Dalton

    WR
    Calvin Johnson
    A.J. Green
    Mike Wallace
    Chris Givens
    Mohammed Sanu

    RB
    LeSean McCoy
    David Wilson
    Lamar Miller
    Vick Ballard
    Bernard Pierce

    TE
    Owen Daniels
    Brandon Myers

    K
    Matt Prater

    Defense
    Rams

    What is the make up of your league? 1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 TE and a flex WR/TE or a flex RB/WR/TE?

    I think you have too much talent at WR, not enough at QB and RB. Your RBs should be decent however. Ballard is a decent backup and your starters are alright, so that should be okay. I think you need to consider trading a WR and Kaepernick for a better QB. Dalton is a fantasy backup, not a starter. And I am predicting Kaepernick to be a fantasy bust this year. He got lucky last year. Defenses didn't know what to expect from him or the read option. Now they've had a full off season, during which he has been public enemy number one. Don't get me wrong, he'll do. But since you have too much talent at WR, I would think about trading Green or Wallace with Kaepernick for Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady, Peyton Manning or even Matt Ryan. Proven pocket passers will guarantee big fantasy points. A scrambling sophomore QB is just too big of a fantasy gamble, IMO. If you are going to go for a sophomore, maybe you can get a straight trade of Kaepernick for Andrew Luck, who I think will be a top 5 fantasy QB this season, if his owner in your league is buying into the Kaepernick hype.

    Dead on.

    I completely agree with your opinion on Kaepernick. My leauge has maybe 2 people who focus on Quarterbacks and the rest on RBs or WRs, so I wasn't thining QB early on. But this year everyone went QB. Rodgers, Brees, Manning, and Brady were gone before it even got to my first round pick (I was 6th), then Newton and Ryan got picked up before it got to my second. As a Bengal fan I had to pick up Green, and Griffen III was picked up shortly after. I was pretty bummed that by my third pick the best options were Kaepernick, Wilson, and Luck. So I went with the best RB that was left (McCoy) and decided to pick up whoever was left come my 4th round, which was Kaepernick.

    As for Dalton, I took a gamble. With Green, Sanu, Gresham, and Eifert... I just have a feeling he's going to have a better than expected year. Plus, I like the idea of playing him alongside Green if Kaepernick has a bad year (and I'm expecting it).


    Who do you think would be a better option... Kaepernick or Luck?

    Luck. Absolutely, 100 % Luck. Luck is a traditional pocket passer. My only reservation about adding Luck to your team is that you have Vick Ballard, meaning that 99 % of the time, one will score at the other's expense. Luckily, Ballard isn't one of your starters so it shouldn't be a huge deal, but I'd be weary of it. I think Mike Wallace and Colin Kaepernick for Brady, Brees, Manning, or Ryan is a fair deal. The only one I wouldn't take that trade for is Rodgers. I might bite if it were Megatron and Kaepernick for Rodgers, but even then....if I were you, I'd float Wallace and Kaepernick for Brady, Brees, Manning and Ryan. If you have to, make it Kaepernick and Green. I know he is a Bengal, but loyalty loses in fantasy. Plus as you've pointed out, the Bengals have a lot of targets for Dalton to choose from. That diminishes Green's productivity potential immensely. Hell, Wallace is really all that Miami has. You might be better off trading Green than Wallace.

    Also, you should pick up, in free agency, Kenbrell Thompkins and Markus Wheaton. Both are rookies who should have decent seasons and will add a lot of depth to your bench for those bye weeks. At least one of the two should be available. Remember, wide receiver is a very deep position. Every year you will see about 10-20 fantasy breakouts in this position. Not all will be a Megatron, but you'll see a lot of players emerge out of no where who are passable flexes or even WR2s. So yeah, try that trade and get one or both of those receivers (Thompkins should take priority).

    Quite frankly, you've assembled a pretty good team, considering your League's Roster Limitations. Lamar Miller is set to have an enormous year & LeSean is going to flourish in Chip's system. Megatron & Green is a MUST, I have to disagree with Matt's assessment on the primacy of options in a passing attack when it comes to Dalton. Matt Ryan has some decent recievers, notably Roddy but he feeds Julio first and most often. QBs have favorite targets and they're usually far more valuable than the rest, couple this with the fact that Dalton loves to throw and is very efficient with the ball when it comes to Green's targets and he's a far more reliable option than Mike Wallace. To be frank, Wallace was always there for the speed route, the home run, he's not an every possession receiver and I don't trust Tannehill in the least. Do NOT give up AJ Green.

    I don't trust Kaep either though but there's a bright side on that note, by Week 2 or 3 you'll be able to see if he remains a dual threat. If he's still able to rack up points on the ground and through the air then you'll either keep him or his trade value will skyrocket. In the meantime, Dalton is a safe pick in a division where they may very well win out, they're young, confident, and full of talent. Don't be hasty with a trade for QB, you have a great prospect that everyone is high on, his value will not evaporate if you wait to see how the first few weeks play out.

    Chris Givens, Ballard, & Meyers are all diamonds in the rough with the potential to be major players.

    Hey CC, you ready for that beatdown to start tomorrow? What cruel Fate decided to toss you into the Lion's Den in Week 1?

    I would say I pity you, but that would be a lie.

    Do I play Scam Newton against the STAUNCH Seattle D this weekend? Or should I assume Kaepernick is going to rape the Packers again and roll with him?

    With the exception of a few minor drops (aka... minor back up slots), I've decided to keep who I have and see how it plays out. And while I see Matt's concern on A.J. Green, I can't drop him. No matter how many other targets Dalton has now, I still see Green as his top receiver.

    Just wanted to emphasize this :D

    This guys I know nothing about, so that's good to hear.

    Hey CC, I know you're working at the moment but if you see this before our match starts tonight, make sure you have your Roster set. It'll be locked for any Raven or Bronco.
