How hard is it to not chose your favorite Fantasy player?

The past 2-3 years I had a hard time not chosing Andrew Luck in the top pick.

 

This year, i decided i was going to get a RB first. I got the second pick and picked up Marshawn Lynch. Then on the next round i got really lucky and had a choice between Aaron Rodgers and Luck. Chose Luck. So I got over my hump and still got my favorite player.

 

But this year i decided to pass off on other Colts players because it becomes a pain in the butt when you have too many players on one team and you go into bye. So i mixed it up with Marshawn, Luck, Damarius Thomas, Amari Cooper , Gostowski, Ravens D and so on...lol.

I only have one rule when picking my Fantasy team.

 

Absolutely, under No circumstance do I pick any Pats.   Cannot put myself in a position to have to root for them   :P

 

I have Andrew as my QB this year, and T.Y.   they're my only Colts players.

 

gotta agree but you cant pass on Gronk. lol. I did get Brady last year because there was no better but Romo possibly.

 

But then again, any Patriots players are not even worth chosing because:

 

1. Brady tends to run the ball alot and usually when he gets to the endzone, he gives it to this runningback. He will probably average 1 TD per game....

2. Even with the runningbacks, Brady gives every single runningback an equal share in the redzone. They dont keep 1 player in the redzone everytime.

3. Brady spreads the ball to all his WR. He has no favorite like Luck with TY.

I play for money, so I'm willing to pick anyone. I got Forte and Gronk with my 1st two picks, and Hilton and Alfred Morris in rounds 3 and 4. I'm all over the place and rooting for my team. I will root for the Colts obviously, but I will also root for Gronk to score if the Pats are about to score a td. That's how fantasy works.

Yeah, I'm clear on how Fantasy FB works.  Been playing for 15 years now.

 

Still Refuse to pick any Pats....   :thmdown:   Just.Can't.Do.it.

That's a nice combo of Luck and Hilton, it should work out well (hopefully in all cases for us fans). I think you have to throw away fan allegiances in fantasy or you pass up possibilities of really good players. I do respect you though for sticking to your guns and not rooting for the dark side.  :thmup:

I honestly don't mind the bye week and having numerous players on the same bye. Only if they are solid fantasy performers. I will sacrifice one week knowing in can win 2 more than in would if I picked up a lesser player because if his bye.

I took Luck #1 overall this year when in last year's I've taken RB's like they told me too.

 

I'm basing this off 2 things.  Luck is the top QB in fantasy and this league has 6 points per passing TD.  So that ups the value of QB's.

 

Also the top RB's have a really high bust rate in comparison to QB's.  

 

So we'll see if this pays off.

    • But if they were like me, they only liked one of the corners and wasn't a fan of Turner. So I'd look at it and say there's a fair chance the two guys I really liked that were left in that range would be gone.

    • @ADnum1     FWIW:   I’ve tried to reach out to you via private mail.  Currently your set not accept mail.   Nothing urgent.  Just a heads up. 
    • The great Willie Mays has died at the age of 93. What a great player he was! I wish I could have seen him play. Thankfully, I listened to sports radio in my teens and early 20s and learned from older fans who watched him and many of the great baseball players of his time. Willie Mays was the last living player from that Golden Era of baseball. I learned this week that Carl Erskine of the Dodgers died this year too. I think he was 98 or 99.   Rest in peace Willie and Carl.   https://www.nytimes.com/athletic/3070070/2024/06/18/willie-mays-obituary-giants?source=user-shared-article we lol wp   At times like this, I wish @Jay Kirkand some of the older baseball fans were still posting here. I hope they are all doing well.
    • Best wishes, Mr. I   Hoping for many more years of your leadership.  The Colts need you at the top.    One day at a time.   Hope to see you soon!
