My most anticipated league, the Four Corners Elimination Matchup Fantasy Football league, (auction) drafted last night. We had it all: bidding wars, trash talk, discussions of wigs and headpieces and we even had a Jesse Jackson impersonator. In the end, I proved how far I'm willing to go for Arian Foster and I learned that I am not the biggest LeSean McCoy fanboy out there in fantasy land. The league is viewable to the public, not sure how long that will last though. Make the jump to see the list of competitors and my bodacious team.
Its been awhile since I've done a drunken blog post. The kind I regret in the morning.... Make the jump if you want to see more LeSeanMcCoy love and the best team I've drafted yet. Draft notes come with proof of purchase.
A smorgasbord of fantasy football draft goodness. Random notes, updated PPR (0.50) rankings and draft results after the jump. no comments
Handcuffs are for cops and people who can't get a boner without being dominated.
That's what I like to tell people nowadays. I suppose a woman who wants to steal eight dollars and a Moe Ginsburg suit from you could fit in there too. All joking and Seinfeld references aside, handcuffs still have a place in our silly little game. RBBC situations across the league have really changed the fantasy landscape, making handcuffs more of a luxury than a necessity. Make the jump to see which handcuffs should be owned across all leagues and which should be on your watch list.
Prospecting for 2011...
Domonic Brown is that special someone atop my watch list. I often find myself saying, “Sit on my face” in robotic voices when day dreaming about the Phillies Outfielder. Domonic, which I prefer to pronounce as Demonic, may very well be the main character in a J.P. Alex created video game and anyone who doesn’t want a piece of him in 2011 should be labeled as a Grandma’s Boy. The power/speed threat was the Phillies No.1 ranked prospect coming into this season and he should slide into an everyday role when Jayson Werth and his beard hit the free agent market this coming off season. Domonic has all the tools to become a superb fantasy option and the Philadelphia lineup/ballpark is a great environment to find big time production. Brown has power, speed and a good eye at the plate. He also has a track record of producing an above average BABIP, so if his strikeout rate is hovering near 30%, he should still be able to produce a respectable Batting Average. Splitting 93 minor league games between AA and AAA this season, Brown hit 20 HR and stole 17 bases before being promoted to the big leagues. He hit .318 in AA (65 games) and .346 in AAA (28 games). Brown has struggled a bit since his promotion, but he is far too talented to worry about the small sample size. He is getting his feet wet (he only played 28 games in AAA) and the poor numbers (.229 AVG, 2 HR, SB) only helps us get him at a cheaper price in 2011. Listen to my main man Dante, if you don’t draft the Brown Bomber, you may end up shitting your pants.

I didn't want to post this until I drafted my H2H basketball team, but what the hell... you can say you heard it here first. Make sure to target Chicago players in your H2H basketball leagues (especially in auction drafts, no reaching involved). The Bulls play 14 games during our playoffs with 7 of those games being played during NBA slow days. If you want to eliminate as much luck as possible during those crucial weeks, you'll want to be able to field as many players as you can down the stretch. With the Bulls, you get the most games and you get them on the most important days. More H2H playoff scheduling after the jump.
What the heck is going on with that son of a Bob Cratchit? Trench Foot Timmy has been pitching like Mitch Kramer... if Mitch Kramer had rickets. Today is the trade deadline in my H2H dynasty league and instead of whooping dat ass with the Soul Pole, I packaged Lincecum and Strasburg in a deal for Jon Lester. Make the jump to see my opinions on Lincecum's troubles, future prospects and why I made the deal.
