Fantasy Football 2014


I had my draft already. I had the #5 pick and was able to get LeSean McCoy. If you get a RB that slides that is as good as LeSean McCoy, you draft him. Period.

Overview : Really, no matter what pick you have, you’re able to have a great draft. As I always say, you need to dictate what you do by what the others are doing. If all your opponents are drafting QB’s in the first-round, then adjust. If they are taking DEF’s in early rounds 4-6, then adjust. Be ready to adjust. But, stick the your instincts for players you like this season. Stick to ‘your guys’. If you have some of your favorite players available down the stretch and already have their positions filled, draft your guys. 

 QB’s : QB’s get the most yards in a game. Draft a guy who gets the yardage (Manning, Rodgers) and gets the ball in the End Zone. More obvious, get a QB who has weapons. If possible, grab the best in the business (Brees, Brady) to leave no room for error. Backup QB’s can be used a trade bait, bye weeks, or god forbid your #1 Qb goes down to injury. 

RB’s : More and more leagues are becoming PPR. With that said, pick a RB as early as possible, and pick a guy who can catch out of the backfield (McCoy, Forte). With the Receptions and Receiving Yards you get a top-tier RB who can rack up Rushing Yards and Rushing TD’s as well. Later on in the draft, look for the backs who can possibly have breakout seasons (Sankey, B. Tate)

WR’s : Get the athletes. Try to stay young, and get the guys with size. These are the guys who create space and can catch balls in double coverage. Guys with speed are great for long yardage, touchdowns, but depending on the team they’re on, might hurt you in PPR by only catching a few balls per game. Look around, maybe you can get one or two #1 WR’s. 

TE’s : If you aren’t able to get Julius Thomas or Jimmy Graham, wait. Nobody else is going to draft Kyle Rudolph early, and nobody wants Jason Witten before the fill up other roster spots. Unless you’re looking for the best or second best guy at his position, then it’s best to wait and stack up. Make your team great at WR or RB before taking the second-tier Tight End.

Javier Baez


I got a chance to see Javy Baez before he was called up. I watched the Iowa Cubs in Fresno, CA at Chukchansi Park against the hometown Grizzlies.

Unfortunately, Baez went 0-3 with 3 K’s. I’m a big Cubs fan, I’d say they’re my favorite NL team and second-favorite MLB team. I knew about Baez coming into the game in Fresno and I was excited to see his hitting power in person. I didn’t. But, I did get to see highlights of his debut with the Cubs. In 104 games, he hit 23 home runs with 80 RBI, a .510 slugging percentage and 16 stolen bases. In one game with the Chicago Cubs, he hit a Home Run. I’m proud to say I got to watch Baez in person while he was headed up the big leagues. A very young, and a very talented Cubs roster will only get better. Bryant, Baez, Alcantar, and Solar are the guys who will be in the everyday lineup for Chicago in the next two to three seasons.
