The 2009 fantasy football season has been a very interesting one through the first six weeks of the year. We’ve seen many breakout players that no one really expected, and we’ve definitely seen our share of busts as well. Today we’re going to focus on the overachievers of the fantasy football world and which are the most meaningful fantasy football surprises.
Let’s give some respect to the guys who have gone above and beyond the call of duty so far. Having impressed just about everyone out there, here are three players we all wish we drafted when we had the opportunity to get them. Read the rest of this entry »
Kellen Winslow. eventually, the move to Tampa Bay to play with the Buccaneers ought to rejuvenate his career. In 2009, with so a bunch of uncertainty at the QB role, it’s probably sound to assume he won’t be generating stats similar to ’07. However, he ought to be a viable target for Byron Leftwich, in addition to a safety net for Josh Freeman (as soon as he’s prepared), so his catch total may be decent.
The following are more Fantasy Football Tight Ends that could be busts for fantasy football owners. Read the rest of this entry »
SAN DIEGO (AP)—LaDainian Tomlinson(notes) has been ruled out of the San Diego Chargers’ home opener against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday due to a sprained ankle, just the second time the star running back will miss a start due to injury in his brilliant nine-year career.
If you haven’t already, try to get Sproles. LT is an over rated has been. Running backs his size don’t last too long in the big leagues. If you drafted him like I did in round 1, just keep him in your back pocket for now.
1. Drew Brees: Brees was simply the best quarterback in the NFL last year, and he’s a superstar. Especially when it comes to fantasy leagues. Brees had a handful of monster games last season, and it’s safe to say that this season should be no different. Bonus points when you factor in Colston’s return.
2. Tom Brady: I’d be tempted to put him at #1, but his rustiness could be an issue at the beginning of the season and it remains to be seen how well he’s recovered from injury. He’s looked strong in the preseason, but that’s no sure thing. Now that we’ve thrown out the risk factors, Brady is a fantasy stud and could easily be the best in football.

Brandon, you encompass all the skill in the world and you are blowing it! How many idle Americans (myself included) would die for the insane amount of money you earn undeservedly. Read the rest of this entry »
If you are lucky enough to get the coveted first spot in your fantasy football league this year, take Turner. I know what you’re thinking. What about Adrian Peterson? He is sick. The guy is freakier than Paula Abdul in room full of young male singers. He’s got explosion, speed, and the necessary power to punch it in at the goal line. He is a stud.

This year I had the unique honor of drafting first in one league, as well as the unlucky honor of drafting last in one league. Normally this wouldn’t be that big of a deal and just a coincidence, but there is an added twist to this story that makes it great for using as a test case for fantasy football draft research and how it effects teams. It wasn’t just my team that had this coincidence this year, but FantasyGirl also plays in both leagues and had the exact same draft spots but in reverse leagues. The league I drafted first, she drafted last, and vice-versa in the other league. This makes for an interesting observation of how the fantasy football draft research can make or break your season before you’ve even had a chance to pick. Read the rest of this entry »
