Bret Roberts (@Brett_D_Roberts) of comes on the show to talk some Fantasy basketball which included some Celtics players, Dynasty leagues, and much more. Also, I give some player I like/ don’t like for this upcoming  basketball season and talk about the weekend that was in fantasy football. my notes from the show are below

“All Things Fantasy”

NBA- players to stay away from

Dwayne Wade- Knee concerns me, Lebron is still the Alpha Dog in Miami

Isaiah Thomas PG, SG- Aaron Brooks is there, could be wrong about this one, but I am staying away

Steph Curry- could be great value but that depends on how far he drops. Buyer Beware

Michael Kidd- Gilchrist- Think he is being very overrated this year. No one knows how good he is going to be. Would rather take a veteran than him

Al horford- Would rather have guys like Greg Monroe, Rudy Gay.

Players I’m trying to get

Paul Millsap- 16.6 points, 8.8 rebound, 2.34 assist, 1.8 Stls, Falling in drafts

Rodney Stuckey

Carlos Boozer

Andrea Bargnani- very undervalued compared to last year.

Demar Derozen- 16.7 pts, 3.3 rebs, 2 assist last year. He is falling in drafts. Could be an excellent value pick

Kevin Martin- in 2010 he averaged 23 points,  just above 3 rebs, about 2.5 assist, last year he averaged 17 points.

October 11, 2012

This is the Wednesday October 10th, 2012 edition of “All Things Fantasy”. I talk about some start/sit for the upcoming week, I take questions from a caller. Also, I played Would You Rather with NBA players that were ranked closely. My notes from the show are below

“All Things Fantasy”

Trades I made-

Got AP and Maclin for Calvin and BJGE- Needed a #1 RB and it is a 1 PPR league, but I am solid at WR with B-Marsh, Percy, Maclin, T. Smith, Hartline, and Andre Robert. So loosing Megatron wasn’t a big lose for my team.

Got Bradshaw, Cruz, and M. Bush for CJ2YDS, and Bowe- got offered this before last weeks game and snap called this.

Gave Leshoure for Vincent Jackson- .5PPR league, got offered this and also snapped called it. Now my lineup is McCoy, Jamaal Charles, V-Jackson, B-Marsh, & Antonio Brown. Solid group, don’t believe in leshoure to be their starter in 3 weeks



Sit Bradshaw vs 49ers

Sit Romo Vs Bal

Sit Brandon Lloydvs SEa

sit Flacco vs DAl

Sit Alfred Morris- this is BOLD though

Start Ponder vs Was

Start Kolb vs Buffalo- This is my Start of the week

Luck is becoming a Must Start

Start ALL Steelers

Start Donald Jones

Start pierre Garcon

Sit both Bills RBs-would choose spiller if I had to start one of them

Sit Marshawn Lynch vs NE- Sit of the week, Just feel that NE will make SEA beat them through the air.

Guys IM trading for:

Jeremy Maclin- He is great buy Low


Larry Fitz

Lance Moore- Is the Saints #2 WR

Andre Roberts- Has been one of the most consistent WR this year

Matt Forte- His value is only going to get higher

Miles Austin- Has been very consistent

Jordy Nelson- It can only get better, his value is at its lowest

Pierre garcon- See Nelson

Guys im trading away

Any Panther- That team is in shambles

Stafford/ Megatron- Could still get a lot for either one and they have a tough ROS schedule

Ahmad Bradshaw- His value is at its highest, will probably get hurt soon

BJGE- He has been a major disappointment

Dwayne Bowe- Ummm Brady Quin is throwing him the ball

Torrey Smith-

Would you rather: I gave my reasons for each one during the show

A lot of jokes and funny stuff were talked about to so make sure to check out the full interview. Also, I give some pickups and a couple of start/sits. Here are some of my notes from the show. Most of these players were talked about on the show.

“All Things Fantasy”


Domenik Hixon- Should be the starter this week for the Giants with Ramses Barden suffering a concussion last week with 11 catches for 114 yards.

Tim Tebow- If your desperate or in a 2 QB league

Donald Jones-2 catches 90 yards a TD.

Greg Little

Guys that should be dropped (% own is based on ESPN leagues)

Mark Ingram: owned in 88% in ESPN leagues.

Pierre Thomas : owned in 83.4 % of ESPN leagues. Had 1 game where had over 100 rushing yards and hasn’t rushed for more than 20 yards in any of the other 3 games.

Toby Gerhart 67.4%-

Peyton Hillis- 80%

Shane Vereen- 60%

Robert Mecheam- 84%- has had 2 games of producing exactly 0 points and 2 games of 40 yards..

Randy Moss 62.5%- had a good week 1 , but since then has only produced 40 yards in 3 games

Start/ Sit

Phillip Rivers- is a must start vs NO
Fred Jackson/ C.J. Spiller- Sit Both

“All Things Fantasy” (10-1-12)

October 2, 2012

This is the Monday October 1st, 2012 edition of “All Things Fantasy”. I talked about players you should pickup, some elite talents, players you should trade for/away, and more. My notes from the show are attached below. (these are notes so sorry for grammatical errors)

“All Things Fantasy”

Real Deal or overrated?

Julio Jones- He has had 1 awesome game (6 catches, 108 Yds, 2 TD). 1 solid game ( 5 catches, 67 Yds, 1 TD) and two abissmal games ( 14 yds, and 30 yds). Next 2 Games are against WSH and OAK. The same thing happened to him last year were he had so solid games then some dud gmaes.

Chris Johnson- Finally this guy did something he had 141 rushing yards on 25 carries against one of the best defenses in the league in the Houston Texans. First game with more than 14 rushes. The fact that Locker got hurt is a huge deal for Chris Johnson.

Ryan Mathews-its starting to look murkier for this RB. First off, Jackie Battle outproduced, and out touched….. Mathews had 14 carries for 61 yards and 2 rec for 21 yards while MR. Jackie Battle had 15 carries for 39 yds and TD and 4 receptions for 40 yards and a TD.

Guys im trading away-

Doug Martin- the promising rookie weekend started the season off solid by rushing for 95 yards in week 1 and 66 yards and a TD in week 2. He has since then trailed off abit by only rushing for 53 yards in week 3 and  a measly 33 rushes on 8 attempts yesterday. Also, Legarette Blount got the TD yesterday. While I still think he will be ok this season if you can seel him now then go ahead and do it.

Andre Johnson-  ohh the very consistent inconsistent play of Dre J, Has had 2 solid weeks and 2 crappy weeks and 1 of those good weeks he only had 2 catches for 72 yards and a TD. Week 1 he had 8 catches for 119 yards, week 2 3 catches 21 yards, week 3 2 catches 72 yards and a TD, Sunday he had 3 catches for 56 yards.

Steven Jackson, heres his rushing yards by week, 53, 58, 29, 55

Greg Jennings- Reaggraveted his groin. Sell Him if you still can

Ryan Williams- Don’t believe he can handle a full work load, Did nothing yesterday, this team could start throwing the ball more and more each game

Guys Im trading for-

Mathew Stafford- It can only get better  right? Well gets a buy week to figure everything out. Hasn’t had more than 1 passing TD in any week this season, but has thrown for over 300 yards this season twice.

Jordy Nelson- Will be a top 10 WR when all is said and done.

Donald Brown- has been ok this season. But he just had a his bye week and does face Green Bay next week but then faces NYJ, Cle, & TEN the weeks after that. Think he could be a lock for 8-10 fantasy points a week which is nothing special but could be a great bye week fill in and or solid #2 rb going forward. He can also be had for very little.

Lesean McCoy- Will finish as a top 5 RB, don’t worry about the bad start

Darren Mcfadden- He is tough to deal with but I still believe  Run DMC



James Jones- Talked about him a lot more on the show, but basically could be a great pickup with Greg Jennings out

Rashard Mendenhall- should return from his injury this week, the Steelers run game has been dreadful.

Joique Bell- this for PPR leagues, had 6 catches for 72 yards on Sunday, 4 catches 44 yards, week before, and 2 catches for 59 yards in week 2.

Andre Roberts- this guy had a great game  on Sunday 6, rec, 118 yards, 2 TDS to bring his total to 4 TDs on the season. That was his first game of over 100 yards, but he has had some games earlier this season. With the RB situation not good

Greg Olsen- had a disappointing first 2 weeks but has been on fire the past 2 weeks, last week he had 7 rec s for 98 yards (14 Targets), yesterday he had 6 catches for 89 yards and a TD.

Brian Hartline- ummm wow, this guy had 12 receptions for 253 yard and 1 TDs. Let me say that again. Question is was it a fluke and while he isn’t getting 253 yards again he 19 targets yesterday. Now he has had some up and down games. His down games were against  the Jets and Texans and he still managed 8 and 9 targets in those games. His other good game was against Oak were he hed 9 catches ( on 12 targets) for 111 yards. Next week gets Cincy

Ryan Fitzpatrick- Leads the NFL in Passing TDs, Enough said.
