It’s that time of year again!
As football season approaches, fantasy leagues are preparing to create their teams and fill their rosters in the quest to become the next fantasy football legend.
The Great Debate
Every good fantasy team requires players who put up great numbers, but it’s not always easy to decide who those players will be.
Take the Quarterback position, for example. There is a great debate among football fans about the statuses of certain players. After all, there has been a lot of change amongst the NFL teams year!
The Quarterback Question
The question of who to draft is important. Do I go with the big names, the studs from the previous years? Or do I choose the steady, albeit not point-heavy names? Having a great Quarterback can really make a mediocre Fantasy Football Team shine. But who does one choose? Here are some things to think about:
Peyton Manning has always been a popular favorite among Fantasy Managers for his ability to think quickly on the field and complete passes, but could this year prove different? He spent the entirety of the 2011 season out due to injury and surgery recovery, only to be released by the Indianapolis Colts. Now, he is working with a new team, in a new town, while coming back from injury! These are enormous odds for any Quarterback to overcome. Will this decrease his overall value?
Drew Brees put up great numbers last year for his Fantasy Football Managers. However, the New Orleans Saints have experienced quite a bit of media backlash due to their sportsmanship issues (or lack thereof). NFL investigations cost the Saints not only a large amount of money, but players as well. Will the franchise turmoil affect team chemistry and Brees’ ability to play as strongly as previous years?
Aaron Rodgers is a stud both on and off the field. Who could forget last year’s practically perfect season! But, this is a new year. Rodgers has lost his Offensive Coordinator to the Miami Dolphins. Will working with a new Offensive Coordinator make him an even more lethal threat? Or more of a dud?
The New York Jets have a truly interesting Battle going on! Will Mark Sanchez emerge as the reigning Quarterback champ or will Tim Tebow, the darling of University of Florida fans, chomp down and take the prize as starting Quarterback? Like I said, interesting.
Andrew Luck is tried and true… in the college arenas. But how will he fare in the big leagues? He has tremendous shoes to fill as Quarterback for the Indianapolis Colts, as many fans are still unhappy with Peyton Manning’s dismissal!
Being a Fantasy Football Legend is hard work. It takes time, dedication, knowledge, and a healthy dose of luck! Who will you choose as Quarterback for your Fantasy Football team?
