Fear and Loathing in Jacksonville (Ponte Vedra)

“I have never felt comfortable around people who talk about their feeling for Jesus, or any other deity for that matter, because they are usually none too bright … or maybe ‘stupid’ is a better way of saying it; but I have never seen much point in getting heavy with either stupid people or Jesus freaks, just as long as they don’t bother me. In a world as weird and cruel as this one we have made for ourselves, I ...

Young Guns:  Breaking Down the New Browns Offense

The Cleveland Browns have not exactly been a great source of fantasy talent in recent years but at FFKL we like to take the long view.  The Browns had a tremendous 2012 draft (and supplemental draft) and appear to finally have the pieces in place to become a dynamic offense.  Will it happen this year?  Probably not, but the seeds have been sown.

Let’s take a look at the projected starting line-up and break it down by position group:

Offensive Line

LT:  Joe ...

Browns on the clock. . .

Browns on the clock. . .

So you’re the Cleveland Browns.  You stink.  You have multiple needs, notably on the offensive side of the ball.  The one offensive threat any defense game planned for left in free agency.  You have the #4 pick in the upcoming draft and are virtually guaranteed a shot at both the consensus top running back (Trent Richardson) and top wide receiver (Justin Blackmon).  You could take a chance on  a late rising quarterback (Ryan Tannehill).  You could just ignore your obvious ...

Madden 13 on the way. . .

Madden 13 on the way. . .

 

And thank God none of my players will make the cover this year.

If you haven’t been paying attention, the final four includes three fantasy relevant players:  Cam Newton, Calvin Johnson, and Aaron Rodgers.  It’s a nice even distribution with one player per division.

The winners (who will advance to the finals) will be announced April 18.
