The Spawn Fantasy Football season starts this weekend with a full slate of games. If you are an owner and have not already set your lineup.... don't worry -- I am sure it will be OK. It took me a little longer to get this posted, but I have good excuse. I was blinded by the super sonic speed of our QB on saturday.
BAHammm's Disclaimer:: This is just my opinion based on flimsy NFL knowledge and history. Teams 1-5 and 12-14 are pretty solid but the teams between 5 and 12 could be shuffled at random most likely. I will try no do this as often as possible throughout the season. We can vote to either have power rankings or weekly wrap-ups like I tried to do every week last season. You decide.
Just an early look at the upcoming Fantasy Football season here at the Spawn. With college football imminently approaching (Tomorrow!! ) football is on a lot of hearts and minds these days. I've taken the liberty as commish to briefly take a look at the teams and rank them as I see it right now. This is taken into account some of you have already attacked the free agent market liberally. Without further ado.
14:) TrueBlueMen. Idk what happened with their draft or where they've been but this deserves a MNF "C'mon Man!" Star players of Desean Jackson (will Kolb be able to get him the ball?) and the NYJ defense bracket 10 RBS ON THE ROSTER!
13:) Fightin' Tigers. Your QBs consist of Ben Roethlisberger (suspended 4-6 games) and Sam Bradford. Good WRs in Colston and Welker but not enough big point guys to be a threat at this stage.
12:) C-Town Playas. Mcnabb (will he stay healthy) and Josh Johnson at QB brings up a ?. The Steve Smith twins at WR anchor a pretty solid WR corps. Somewhat skeptical RB issues and 2 kickers on the preseason roster.
11:) Smooth Operators. Your son may say your team is stacked but I believe his to be the superior team at this moment. Qb is a big issue but they do have solid Rbs and decent WRs. 2 defenses on the roster bring them down as well.
10:) Surfing Kook. 3 QBs on the roster with Favre leading the way with Vince Young. Tim Tebow as a 3rd QB? Ray Rice can be a stuf FF RB though. Also has 2 kickers.
9:) DR. B. Kevin Kolb will either turn out to be a stud or a bust. Time will tell. Andre Johnson is money all day. But, 2 kickers and 2 defensive teams?
8:) Slim Shady's. Romo and Henne could be solid QBs. Combined with workmen-like WRs and RBs that should put up consistent points. May not be at the top but definitely not at the bottom. 2 Ds on roster.
7:) He Hate Me. Holding down the 7th spot mostly because of Adrian Peterson. With Favre's options dropping like Michigan's secondary All Day is going to have to come up BIG this season. Solid players at the other positions should round out the team though.
6:) Defenestrators. Aaron Rodgers should be huge again this season. Combined with good WRs and RBs this should be a threat throughout the season.
5:) 9 Finger Freaks. Little did many know but Schaub led the league in passing yards last season and will probably have another huge year. A solid WR corps compliments Schaub but somewhat sketchy backups and 2 kickers may be worrisome. Still put them at the number 5 position though.
4:) Homo 4 Romo. Drew Brees, big time RBs, big time WRs. This team should be trouble. Backups though may let them down at times.
3:) Bigassham. Your Commish's team comes in at 3rd. At first I thought I had a terrible team, then I thought "hey pretty good", now again I'm not so sure but I'm going with my initial instinct. Manning will put up solid numbers again along with Randy Moss. The rest of the WRs could be suspect but Cribbs may have a breakout season at the position. Time will tell for this team.
2:) Huge Fake TDs. One name, Tom Brady. Big threat receivers. Power backs usually used at goal line situations. Should be a high scoring team.
1:) I guess it should come as no surprise to anyone as last year's returning champs Zoltan's Heroes comes in and grabs the number 1 pick Chris Johnson and also the number 1 spot on our initial power rankings. Complimenting Johnson should be a great year from Flacco with his new added weapon. Combine that with solid players at every position and we could have a repeat.
