2011 Fantasy Football Thread

Its that time again and as the labor situation wraps up, FF leagues are starting to schedule their drafts. Its time to starting feeding that addiction and talk some fantasy.

Free agency looms and will undoubtedly change the fantasy landscape, but the Draft has already dumped a fresh crop of talent in the league. Who will you be targeting come your upcoming fantasy draft?

These are my top 5 players coming into the league:

5. Cam Newton - QBs always have a tough year one, if you're in a keeper league and want a guy with a high ceiling and ideal physical talent, Cam is the man. Worth a low round pick to hide on your bench, obviously a strong camp increases his stock.

4. Ryan Williams - The running back spot has that feel of easy transition in the year one. Williams lands in an ideal spot...Beanie Wells has been a major disappointment and Hightower is ideal number 2 who contributes in multiple ways. Williams has a little injury concerns and small frame may deter some, but make no mistake he is explosive. Will Arizona bring in another vet in free agency? Maybe, but Williams is a prime sleeper in rounds 9-10. Watch the camp battle.

3. AJ Green - Im gonna give the Gruden "this guy" phrase when talking about the best receiver coming outta the draft, because he is exciting. RAC, best hands of any receiver in college , great red zone target...Cincy gets a steal at 4 with him. Now, I love Green with Carson and like Green with anybody else. With 2 old receivers departing, Green starts right away. 50 catches is the bottom IMO. Issues at other skill offense positions has me worried, until they're worked out, 7th round pick.

2. Mark Ingram - NO picking him in the first round lets me know a ton of what Sean Payton A)thinks about his RB situation and B)what direction he wants offense to take. Ingram is a producer, he just gets it done stat wise. Please do not pick Reggie Bush nor Pierre Thomas in your drafts. The offense is still high powered and the type of yardage they put up is ridiculous. After camp is over I expect Ingram to have the job barring injury. Is he a RB2 in your starting fantasy lineup? Its early, but im gonna say yes, 5th round pick.

1. Daniel Thomas - Brown is most likely done in Miami and Soprano's offense loves to run the ball a ton. Hello Daniel Thomas I'm late to the bandwagon. Miami's QB situation is a mess, but I expect improvement with a possible vet addition in free agency. Thomas as Ingram, a producer without alot of bells and whistles. Its a toss up with Ingram for the top spot, but Soprano I think has already given the job to Thomas. Legit RB2, late 3rd-4th round pick.

Thoughts/opinions? Who do you like and which rookies will you target in your up coming fantasy draft?

Not making the list but could be viable fantasy rookie contributors: Mikel Leshore, Titus Young, Jake Locker, Julio Jones

Bottom line is stay away from rookies. Rarely do they truly ever produce solid fantasy numbers.

Mike Wallace is poised for a breakout, imo.

Re: 2011 Fantasy Football Thread

I would pick no rooks this season until week 3 and get a feel for them. I got Chris Johnson his rook year, but after like week 5. Some doofus let him go for some reason and I snatched him as I needed a starter. Great move for me. I would never draft a rook in fantasy. Very few pan out, and the ones that do are usually not the big names either. AJ Green might be a good gamble, but Ingram might just be too slow, or just plain suck.

Re: 2011 Fantasy Football Thread

Guys check out my FF league thread. I know I set up my league quite early, but I did it to give people a big time window to join. It is free and for fun on NFL.com. The league ID and password are stated on my thread. It is a 16 team league this year.

I would pick up Ingram or AJ Green in the later rounds. Maybe Thomas, since he seems to be the no. 1 RB in Miami.

We got 3 guys in the mix for starter, so when drafting it making it extremely tough to take a guy with confidence anywhere prior 6-7th round. I wouldnt be surprised if Shanny really doesnt name a starter until a day or 2 leading up to week 1. I think he is gonna use alot of rotation which is value to the team but not fantasy wise. Im personally gonna see who slides in the fantasy drafts and look for that sleeper in rounds 10-12.

Re: 2011 Fantasy Football Thread

I think Cooley will have a monster year just feelin it.. Besides us I think Darren McFadden will continue fantasy domination.

Look for Ocho to have a huge year also

Cooley is always a solid choice, i just dont see him jumping into the top tier cause our passing game is so weak. I think at the highest a 7th best TE fantasy wise. McFadden injuried in camp already, shouldnt be an issue.

Ive moved Ochocinco way up in my rankings, but want to see him in camp a little more.

I find truely hilarious alot of publications/websites have his teammate Tom Brady ranked so low this year (context, low as in 6-8 best rankings), after last year being the 3rd best QB in fantasy. My top 3 QB this year: 1. Aaron Rodgers 2. Phillip Rivers 3. Tom Brady

Re: 2011 Fantasy Football Thread

Quick question guys, I am in a keeper league that plays QB, RB, RB, WR/RB, WR, WR, TE K and then IDP. We do 3 offensive keepers and I am keeping Adrian peterson and L. McCoy, my last keeper is either Peyton Hillis, Vincent Jackson, or Rivers.

Thanks guys

You have a very good problem. Jesus you were stacked at RB last year. I would not keep Peyton Hillis. Both of your other 2 choice are being undervalued in the early rankings ive seen. Its a toss up. This could be Rivers peak career year. Or Jackson very well could be a top 5 receiver. I have him listed number 6 or 7 receiver and Rivers my number 3 QB. you cant go wrong either way. If your like me, I put higher value on a good WR vs QB, probably roll with Jackson.
