So, CineSportsTalk.com is having their annual Fantasy Football League again this season, and this year features what looks like an evenly balanced array of teams (minus mine). Every team (minus mine) looks ready to dominate the game and features offensive talent like no other. Don’t believe me? Here goes:
The Brady Bunch – Scott Peterson
Strength: RB – Elliott and Miller will be the workhorses for their respective teams, while Gordon is the feature back and primed for a bounceback.
Weakness: QB – We don’t know what Prescott will do, and there are others ready on the WW to be better…..that said, if he can go 2-2 at best, having Brady come in instantly gives him an advantage over most.
**Since The Sportz Nutt wrote this column, The Brady Bunch has since grabbed Matt Ryan to play QB until Brady is back from suspension.
Rawls Royces – Steve Farace
Strength: RB – Rawls and DeAngelo/Bell is a beast of a duo that should both score and add up the yards. Honorable mention for WR as all three are VERY solid.
Weakness: QB – Only because I had to find a weakness. Manning and Dalton are a good combo when waiting on QB, and both have stud WR to throw to. Great job overall.
NY Big Blue – Jader Paramo
Strength: QB – Brees and Cousins have the potential to be lethal.
Weakness: WR – Baldwin will fall back to earth as he was scoring reliant last season. There’s no way he keeps up that pace.
Dirty Birds – Ralph Linardic
Strength: WR – Depth behind the best 1-2 WR combo in the league.
Weakness: RB – So many injury prone players at the position.
Team CABEY – Carlton Cabey
Strength: Special Teams – You heard me. Despite the fact that he has studs at other positions, having one of the league’s best defenses and kickers is awesome.
Weakness: Depth: Parker has eating issues, Green is hurt (and could be for awhile), Michael is a pre-season darling and regular season mess.
Sportz Nutt – The Sportz Nutt (Me)
Strength: WR – Tons of scorers in this non-PPR format, but no studs.
Weakness: QB/RB – Carr and Taylor are decent, but I waited too long on QB….if healthy, Lacy and Charles could be deadly, but this isn’t 2014.
Kung Suh Panda – Danny Isusi
Strength: WR – No real studs at WR (I say that because I think Jordy is now labelled as injury prone), but incredible depth!
Weakness: QB – I think he is over-rated this year, and has looked awful so far.
Trick Montalban – Gabrielle Velasquez
Strength: WR – Incredible threesome there….that’s what she said.
Weakness: RB – Boom or bust for DeMarco.
Junk in the Trunk – Jose Macias
Strength: QB – Newton is a scoring machine and does it with his arms and feet. Rivers is quite the capable backup who throws like mad.
Weakness: Bench – I see about 5 players I would drop.
Maximum Barnage – Mike Peterson
Strength: WR – Two years ago, there’s no way this could have been drafted. This year, it’s possible and all three should score their fair share.
Weakness: RB If Forte goes down, there’s little hope for this RB core.
And there you have it. I like the teams this year, and the people running their teams even more. Here’s an idea…..my team name sucks. I need a new name. In the comment area, give me ideas for a team name. I’ll pick my favorite one!
And there you have it.
