” All Things Fantasy” (6-18-12)

This is the Monday June18th, 2012 edition of  “All Things Fantasy”. Jeff Erickson from Rotowire.com comes on the show to talk Fantasy Baseball. Also, i give my top 5 QBs for the upcoming Fantasy Football season. My notes from the show are below.



Coco Crisp OF, Oak- (27%) This is mainly for Roto leagues. Crisp can get stolen bases in a heartbeat. He struggled mightly at the beginning of the season but has turned it around in the last 15 days he has 5 runs, 1 HR, 8 RBIs, 3SBs and a .354 OBP

Brandon Belt 1B, OF SF- (18.6%)- has been on fire recently, he has a 6 game hitting streak in which he is 8 for 20 with 4 runs, 3 HRs, 7 RBIS, & a cool .500 OBP. He is finally getting everyday at bats and for a such a big prospect like him, that makes a big difference. He should be picked up most leagues.

Trevor Cahill SP, Ariz- (ESPN 33%)- Has been down right Sensational in his last 3 starts as he has 3 wins (All QS) hes gone 23.1 Innings, w/ 20 Ks, 0.77 ERA & 1.03 WHIP

Salvadore Perez C, KC (2%)- He is coming the DL and could be a solid contributor for any Fantasy team. This guy was  a huge pre season sleeper and now is about to return from injury

Scott Podsednik OF, BOS- the crafty veteran has been a savior for Boston, he did just get hurt so some cause for concern but he has 6 SB on the season w/ a .406 OBP

Pedro Alvarez 3B, PIT (8.3%)- Has 4 Homeruns in 2 days w/ 9 RBIS. Get him whiles he hot. B/c he goes on streaks where he hits bombs, then streaks where he does nothing. There was a streak at end of April into May where he hit 5 bombskis in 9 games

Ike Davis 1B, NYM- A popular late round pick has disappointed all season, UNTIL NOW..In his last 6 games he is 9/20 with 5 runs, 1 HR, 6 RBIS, a ridiculous .542 OBP and currently has an 8 game hitting streak

Glen Perkins RP, Min (.6%)- Seems like he is going to the closer for Minnesota


top 5 QBS for the 2012 season

5. Cam Newton/ Michael Vick. If I thought Vick could be healthy through a 16 game season the He would be ahead of Cam the Man. Cam was tied for 3rd with Tom Brady in scoring for QBs last year, but a lot of that has to do with his running ability as he had 14 rushing TDs which was 2nd most in the NFL ( Lesean Mccoy had 17) and 700 rushing yards. I don’t see the how he can match the Rushing TD total but he is all around a great fantasy QB.

4. Mathew Stafford- Has the Best WR on his team and he threw for over 5000 yds last year which was 3rd best in the NFL and his 41 TDs were 3rd most in the NFL to. This guy has all the tools of an elite level QB

3. Aaron Rodgers- That’s right I don’t believe he will finish as the top QB this year for a couple of reason his 4,643 PYDs was 5th most in the NFL and only about had about 20 more yards than Philip Rivers. He had 2 of his worst games in weeks 14-15.

2.  Drew Brees- had an NFL Record of 5,476 Passing yards with 46 TDS. Was right there with Rodgers with the most points for a QB and I think he will be right there at the again this year.He threw for almost 900 more yards than Rodgers did last year. The only difference is Rodgers had 3 Rushing TDs and 200 more rushing yards. This a contract year and I think he will be awesome again

1. Tom Brady- That’s right, Brady is going to be the best fantasy QB this year and a lot has to do with the receiving core around him. This could be the best bunch of WRs/ TE has ever played with. When you have 4 Legit guys to throw to the defense has no way of guarding all these guys. He had 39TDS this year and I think he easily surpasses that and gets close to his 50 TDs he threw in 2007. He had an unreal 5,235 passing YDs add in the TDS and you got the BEST FANTASY QB
