Every week during the 2014 NFL season I’ll post my weekly position rankings to help you set your fantasy lineup (as will Anthony Maggio). Adjustments will be made throughout the week to account for news, injuries, etc. Post questions in the comments below or on Twitter @Bo_Mitchell.
Aaron Rodgers at Minnesota
Andrew Luck vs. Jacksonville
Drew Brees vs. Baltimore
Peyton Manning vs. Miami
Jay Cutler vs. Tampa Bay Continue reading
It was probably a bit inevitable. Tony and I had combined to add nearly $17,000 to our hypothetical bankrolls throughout the first 10 weeks of the season, really without any major bad weeks along the way. Sure, we lost a few bucks here and there, but for the most part it’s been full pseed ahead.
I was 0-4 and Tony was 1-3, and we collectively gave more than $5,000 hypothetical dollars back to the various sports books where we get our lines. Thankfully we were both playing from ahead, so we’re still in decent shape. We’ll get back on the horse in week 12 and hopefully ride home with more baskets full of pretend cash.
Here are the standings. Continue reading
Every Thursday on 1500ESPN’s Fantasy Football Pants Party, Anthony Maggio and Bo Mitchell field their Ballsy teams—a full fantasy lineup comprised only of players available in at least half of ESPN.com leagues. Each week Zoneblitz.com will publish a preview, with Maggio’s top-rated at each position among the Ballsy-eligible players.
This is getting embarrassing.
Fantasy Editor Anthony Maggio continued to rock the Zoneblitz Survivor Pool, selecting Miami to win over Buffalo last Thursday night. So he runs his record to 10-1 for the season in this double elimination event.
But Tony’s incorrect selection of Cleveland over Houston means the other three of us have not only been eliminated from the regular pool, but have flunked out of our consolation round as well.
So … take these picks with a grain of salt – and probably don’t pay attention to anyone but Maggio.
Maggio: Indianapolis over Jacksonville
Teams used: Miami, NY Jets, Green Bay, Atlanta, San Diego, New Orleans, Denver, New England, Dallas, Seattle, Baltimore
Four St. Louis Rams are among eight first-time eligible candidates who were named by Pro Football Hall of Fame voters as semifinalists for the class of 2015. Kurt Warner, Isaac Bruce, Torry Holt and Orlando Pace were part of the “Greatest Show on Turf” that won a Super Bowl and played in another during the late 1990s and early 2000s.
The other four first-timers named semifinalists were Edgerrin James, Kevin Mawae, Junior Seau and Ty Law, rounding out a class
that voter Dan Pompei called one of the strongest first-year eligible classes in a long time.
The NFL Network unveiled those eight and 18 more candidates who remain alive as semifinalists on Tuesday night during an hour-long special.
While it’s a strong first-year class, those candidates don’t have an easy ride to induction. Most see Seau as a lock and several more say Warner and Pace are likely candidates, as well, but their cases for enshrinement in their first years of eligibility are less certain. And they face tremendous competition among the 18 semifinalists who are beyond their first years of eligibility. Continue reading
