Default Fighting 1:18th Fantasy Football League - 2015-2016 - NOW OPEN!

2014 Final Rankings:



Ahhh football is almost here! I re-opened the league, and re-invited everyone.

So far, I see:

Me
Andrew (Friends friend)
Nacho
Duffman

So we have room for 6 more people! Get in while the getting is good!

Don't forget we have a fancy TROPHY now (pictures forthcoming.. it's in the garage somewhere).. and this HAS to be the year of the Nacho.. right? Right.

We're doing a garage sale soon so I'll be looking through my stuff and hoping to come up with some prizes for the top 3 spots.

If you're interested in joining or know someone who is, and didn't play last year, post here and I'll get you in!

Here is the link to the league:

Yahoo - login

I was thinking Saturday the 5th for the draft? It's Labor Day weekend, but at least we don't have to worry about anyone getting hurt during a pre-season game. Thoughts/

Of course this is the Year of the Nacho! Y-O-T-N!!!

Look, if I lead the league in points scored enough times, I'm bound to win eventually. Statistically speaking.... when in reality my team annually turns into Cleveland once the playoffs start.

You know, blind squirrels and all that...

Seriously.. you led the league in points both years right?

Drafting on POINT!

Though I don't know if Peypey will lead you to points again this year.. what do you think?

Yep led the league both years, for all the good it did.

I'm not opposed to drafting Peyton, but it's all about value. In the right slot I could take him. He's my favorite player, but I learned a long time ago, you don't score points by playing favorites. The teams looking for the homer picks tend to reach, and typically that leads to a sub-par draft.

Peyton has been a value pick for me since the injury because for the last three years, people get all lathered up with the "age is finally going to get him this year" chants and write him off. It's ok, the further he falls, the better value for me. Is he the top QB in the draft this year? Clearly not. Is he better point-wise than 28 other starting QBs.... probably?

Manning is an odd phenomenon fantasy-wise, as people tend to get really high on him and draft him too early or completely write him off and pick lesser QBs because they've been reading too many projections from "experts" who say he's washed up. Either way, people react to him in an extreme fashion more-so than any other player I've encountered.

And yeah.. Peyton.. we'll see. He sure tapered off at the end of last year, did they ever say if that was due to injury or not? Hard to compare to the steller 2013-2014 season though.

Who's still with the Broncos? They have Demaryius still right? Welker? I know Julius Thomas went to the Jags (snicker).

Depending on who you listen to, the drop off last year was about a 70/30 split between injury and age. No one argues that Peyton's not 26 anymore, but he's still the smartest guy in the room, and barring injury, there are very few that perform better, in fantasy or IRL. Do I think he'll put up another 55 TDs? Nope, but even with the injury last year, he put up 39, second only to Luck. I think Peyton would retire if he thought he was going to go out there and suck. So while he might not put up MVP numbers, I don't expect him to statistically fall off a cliff either.

As for his weapons, DT is still there, but JT is gone, and I don't think they resigned Welker (expected to retire, IIRC). But Sanders is still there as WR2, and they signed TE Owen Daniels, who just follows Kubiak around (Hou & Bal). Not as good as JT, but he's been above average with some mediocre QB's, so I expect Manning to get the most out of him. Running backs are the same three interchangeable parts who will get a lot of RRBC work from Kubiak. All-in-all, personnel has changed little offensively... the coach and play-caller will be the biggest unknowns.

Yeah it'll be interested to see if they go with ground & pound from the beginning. It seemed to work well for them at the end of last year.

I thought they swung the pendulum too far last year. I'm hoping for more balance. I imagine Kubiak calling a more "run to setup the pass" type traditional offense, but I fully expect Peyton to continue to change the play based on the defensive read. With Manning, they should be able to do things that were well beyond the capability of Schaub and Flacco.

I got a friend to join, so we're at 6. I have another friend who I need to convince to join.

Is Medd coming back? SWG or TofuJesse?

So returning from last year are my personal friend Mitch (of "Mitch's Unreal Team") and his co-worker Andrew (of team "Andrew"). They're both from Southern California like me.

We of course have our stalwart 118th warriors, PCSguy88 "Steel Rain", Nacho "MsCleo picks 4 nacho", Duffman's "Duff Crew" and me.

The NEW BLOOD!

Tony aka "Team Under TP" is a friend of mine from Twitter, he's from Orlando, FL. You can find him here: https://twitter.com/tonyposnanski

Bill the Butcher, another person from Twitter, he runs some hashtag games. You can find him here: https://twitter.com/NotBTB

Melissa is a writer who likes nerd stuff & I convinced her to play with us. You can find her here: https://twitter.com/NoompsyDahling

Jeff is from Detroit, and does comedy stuff. You can find him here: https://twitter.com/bigmacher

Should be fun, we can smack talk in the Yahoo! forums as well.

This has to be PCSguy's year, right??
