“All Things Fantasy”

This is Monday August 27th, 2012 edition of “All Things Fantasy”. Jeff Erickson, Senior Editor of Rotowire.com and host of Rotowire Fantasy Sports Today on Sirus/Xm satellite radio (XM 87/Sirius 210), joins me to talk some fantasy baseball and Fantasy Football. Also, I give some draft strategies, interesting Handcuffs, and more. My notes from the show are below.

“All Things Fantasy”

Players that seem to be on all my teams

Donald Brown- usually got him as my 3rd or 4th RB

Torrey Smith- Is going to have a huge year. Top 15 potential going in the 7th to 8th rounds

Matt Ryan- Never overpaid for him ( don’t consider round 6 or 7 as overpaying, or 9 dollars in an auction)

Nate Washington- another guy going later in drafts who was great last year that could repeat or even exceed last years number

Greg Olsen/ Fred Davis- Great TE value late in drafts

Players im staying away from

Miles Austin- Always seems injured

MJD- Would rather have an “injury risk” player than a player that might not even play.

Sproles- At best is repeating last years number and don’t think he even does that

Wes Welker- No way he is going to produce numbers like he did last year. Still a solid WR but there are better guys than him at where he is being drafted

Ryan Mathews- Already missing 2 games, who says he won’t miss more?

 Draft Strategy- QB early is bad, As there is quality QBs in the later rounds

TE early is even worse.

RBs thin out after round3


 Some Sleepers players

Justin Blackmon- Is going to great in PPR leagues

Dexter McCluster- Probably will have RB/WR eligibility and could get close to 5 catches a game which would be great for PPR leagues

Kevin Ogeltree- Remember what Laurent Robinson did last year? Ogeltree could do it this year if/when Miles Austin gets hurt

Owen Daniels- Still a solid TE. Not a big gamble here

Kyle Rudolph- Everyone is loving this guy, just pay to much for him

Jerome Simpson- He will have a solid season, can get him later b/c he is suspended for the first couple of games

Intersting Handcuffs

Nick Foles- Get him if you own Mike Vick

Lavon Brazil- Austin Collies replacement

Brandon Jackson- Could win the job from Montario Hardesty

Rueben Randle- If Hakeem Nicks gets hurt.

Taiwon Jones- If Darren Mcfadden goes down
