    2011 FFGeekBlog.com Bowl 

    First of all, happy birthday to my co-blogger Matt! However, that will be the last well wishes I send his way, as I mentally prepare for the 2011 FFGeekBlog.com Bowl this weekend. In one of our big leagues, the League of Champions, Matt and I are both in the championship game…pretty awesome stuff!

    I’m not overly confident with my team, which looks a little rag-tag at this point (I used to have Matt Forte, so my running backs were solid at one point), but Matt has similar question marks with his roster so it should be a pretty good fight. My only real question is whether to start Matt Stafford or Matt Ryan…or go crazy and start Tim Tebow 🙂

    Anyways, who wins?! (More …)

      If you win, it means I won too.

    FFGeekBlog League of Champions draft results 

    As with the keeper league that Matt and I are in, I figured we should show off our newly drafted teams and let everyone vote on who ended up with the better squad (hopefully the results are better this time!)

    Note: This league is NOT a PPR league, in case that affects your vote.

      Sorry, looks like I’m in the minority here, but Matt won by default. A BU TE AND Def Brandon? Really?

      • Brandon 8:36 am on August 31, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        What’s a “BU TE and Def”? Boston University? 🙂

      • Brandon 8:38 am on August 31, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        Or “big upside”?

      • Brandon 8:39 am on August 31, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        Ohhh….backup. hah, my bad! I’m high on Owen Daniels and Aaron Hernandez this year, so had to grab both. As for the backup defense, I might drop one, but there wasn’t a lot of better options when it came to the last pick of the draft.

        Didn’t mean for a decoder ring to be required on that one.

      Brandon – can you explain Vincent Jackson in the 2nd round? That one really baffled me.

    • Mike 8:58 am on August 31, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      Its a tuff decision actually and I would have picked a tie I think if that was an option. How Ryan Mathews went in the 7th round is beyond me. Good teams guys.

      • Brandon 9:06 am on August 31, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        My thought was that Mike Tolbert was scaring people away from drafting Mathews, but he went even later, hah. I was about to draft Tolbert in round 7 if I remember correctly, but he went just before my pick so I grabbed Owen Daniels. The Chargers offense should be solid this year, so I assume everyone that can stay healthy should have a good year.

      I think the main point I based my vote on is that it’s keeper… that makes Brandon my choice

    FFGeekBlog Keeper League draft results 

    Last night Matt and I took part in our annual keeper league draft and you can see the teams we ended up with below. So who made out the best? You can see the keepers with the small “k” next to them. The league is 0.5 PPR, in case that matters to you.

    Interestingly, Matt and I play each other in the first week of the season, so we should know the answer pretty soon!

      12th round Michael Vick?

        oh nm, I didn’t notice the “K” next to him

        • Brandon 8:12 pm on August 23, 2011 Permalink | Reply

          yeah his 12th round pick looks pretty nice next to my 12th round pick 🙂

            I think Josh Freeman may be the sleeper QB this year. You may get the better end of this Brandon!

            • Brandon 10:25 am on August 24, 2011 Permalink

              That’s what I was hoping, but that game against the Patriots scared me where they made him look like a rookie again. Maybe he’s still shaking off the rust?

            • Yenool 10:32 pm on August 26, 2011 Permalink

              Freeman shouldn’t be a keeper though. You really didn’t have any other options? He’s a fringe top 12 QB this year in that system. You obviously have the adv in WR while Matt has the RB adv. So the scale tips in Matt’s favor based on QB.

    • Brandon 8:42 pm on August 24, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      19-13? It was all tied up earlier today! Was Matt’s draft really that much better than mine?!

    • Matt 1:22 pm on August 25, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      The thing I’m happiest about with this draft is that paying attention to the PPR factor netted me three really valuable RBs. Rice, Hillis and Forte ranked 3rd, 4th and 8th among all RBs in receptions last season.

      • Brandon 1:55 pm on August 26, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        Looks like the people have spoken…and they love your draft, ya bastard. Oh well, we’ll see what really happens come week 1! I like my team for PPR as well, with some solid WR and pass catching RB’s.

        • Matt 3:42 pm on August 26, 2011 Permalink | Reply

          As well they should. When your starting lineup in a PPR league includes Vick, Ray Rice and Peyton Hillis, that’s reason to feel pretty good.

    • Brandon 1:35 pm on September 30, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      Hmm, at this point in the year my team (43 votes) is 3-0 and Matt’s (64 votes) is 0-3.

    Poll: Where do you play fantasy football? 

    Now that we’re halfway through the season, I’m curious as to what websites our readers are using to manage their fantasy football leagues. We generally offer player ownership statistics for Yahoo and ESPN leagues (as in, “Pierre Thomas is available in 72% of Yahoo and ESPN leagues”), but that’s not too helpful if the majority of our visitors are hosting their leagues elsewhere. 

    Only one way to find out! This is one of the few polls around that doesn’t have anything to do with the election that will mercifully be over with in one week. If you answer “other,” we’d appreciate it if you enlightened us as to what system you do use – the comment section is below.

    Who wins the 2011 FFGeekBlog.com Bowl?

      I have some bogus public leagues on Facebook and EA Fantasy Sports…but I wouldn’t recommend them to any serious fantasy footballers out there.

    • Matt 1:39 pm on October 28, 2008 Permalink | Reply

      Interesting… an hour or so into the polling and it looks like we’re pretty spot on when it comes to using Yahoo and ESPN for our ownership stats.

      Don’t mean to be a smartass but the percentages don’t add up to 100.

    • Matt 8:35 pm on October 28, 2008 Permalink | Reply

      That’s because people can check more than one box if they’re in multiple leagues.

      two on yahoo, one on myfantasyleague.com

      I use Yahoo! the most but also play in one league hosted by ESPN. I’m not a fan of the NFL.com league setup as it appears like it has been created more our of desperation. Yahoo! is very nice although I would love to see a live chat window that managers could use when watching games in real time. Additionally I think it would be cool to draft an O-line and get stats for rushing yards, sacks, etc. Maybe even have the ability to draft a head coach and get points based on wins/losses. I think there is a lot of room for creativity. I’ll have to check out some of the other sites mentioned here. Thanks for the bog, it’s great!

    • GrizDave 8:46 pm on October 29, 2008 Permalink | Reply

      Used Yahoo for about 5 years for main league, got talked into using ESPN this year, due to free live scoring. Other than the cost for Live Scoring Yahoo is much better, in terms of comparing Players, looking into the future, etc.

      Nicole – cool, I hadn’t heard of that one before. I’ll have to check it out, looks pretty nice.
