ESPN Fantasy Football 2012

650 posts in this topic

Hey guys, just wanted to let you guys know you can now begin signing up for Fantasy Football on ESPN. I know other members will create leagues and usually we have multiple leagues by people on the board. I'm not opening the league yet but I will create a ESPN League for anyone who wants to join my league.

Now of course if anyone else wants to create a league, post it here as well and let's try to keep everything related to ESPN FF in this thread. So I'm taking "applications" for those who want to join my league in ESPN.

Send me a PM if your interested. Not sure how many people I will want the league to be but that will be determined by the amount of interest. Most likely looking at 14-16 people.

not liking this mock too much

I actually have been mocking a bit while bored at work and I can tell you the following

1. You grabbed Peyton 2 round too early
2. Frank Gore was not good value there, I would grabbed a good WR or QB like Stafford, or Newton, but given you took Peyton in third Im guessing they were gone. Either way though, there should have been better value than Gore. With that 3 headed monster there I expect his tds and carries to go down this year.
3. I wouldnt expect Colston and Bowe to do well given their schedules. Colston due to the circumstances of his team rather than his schedule
4. Britt was good value assuming he is healthy by week 1, however, I cant expect him to come in fully ready or last that long.
5. Surprised you didnt grab David Wilson, Reuban Randle, or Toby Gerhart. AP is likely to be on PUP so Gerhart would be great late value. Wilson will most likely split with Bradshaw and Randle would be good value in the later rounds.

Im about to do one right now from the 11th spot so I will post the results. 12 team mock

Round 1 - Darren Mcfadden
Round 2 - Rob Gronkowski
Round 3 - Darren Sproles
Round 4 - Victor Cruz
Round 5 - Peyton Manning
Round 6 - Eric Decker
Round 7 - Reggie Wayne
Round 8 - Toby Gerhart
Round 9 - Mike Williams (TB)
Round 10 - Houston D
Round 11 - David Akers
Round 12 - Josh Freeman
Round 13 - Kendall Wright
Round 14 - Stephen Hill
Round 15 - Dallas Clark

As you can see my mock went for value and just pure scoring.

Peyton Manning - elite qb
Darren Mcfadden - one of the most productive/risky fantasy drafts
Darren Sproles - ppr monster
Victor Cruz - ppr monster and productive threat
Eric Decker - good value and sleeper
Flex - Gerhart if AP is on PUP otherwise one of my value receivers like Wayne or Mike Williams who should have bounce back years
TE- Gronk - will still be footballs best TE
K - David Akers - was extremely productive last year
Def - productive and with an easy schedule

Reggie Wayne - great value, will bounce back with Luck throwing to him and the colts constantly playing from behind.
Mike Williams - great value, will go back to abusing the slot with Vjax taking pressure off him and o line additions
Clark + Rookies - great late round flyers if one breaks out.

Only regret is not cuffing mcfadden, but I dont know who the handcuff is at this point but I can easily get him within 1-2 weeks. Plan is to trade Mcfadden after a few weeks of god like production from him.

Yeah right now I'm just doing Mocks to get an idea of where players may go and how long certain players last.I have been surprised so far about the values I have gotten in other mocks. I got DeSean Jackson in Round 7 in the latest Mock I'm doing.

Does anyone have a preference on when the draft starts? July, before training Camp, August Before Week 1 of the Pre-season, Week 3 of the pre-season? What does everyone think on the start date of the draft?

I'm still in the process of gathering up people for the league and right now I only have like 5-7 spots taken right now and I'm hoping to do a 12-14 team league.

I will probably have the draft either before Week 1 or after Week 1 of the Pre-Season. Then again it also depends on what everyone else thinks.

So what is the listing of BR users so far? If it is strong enough, I might join. I have to be picky this year, as my time is cramped with studying for the CPA exam.

You should also do a check-in closer to the draft. That way you can weed out some of the users who said they'll play but then never show up.

The 5-7 spots only included those who had sent a PM. Now including the ones in this thread who said they would do it would be a total of 9 Spots taken and if I do a 12 team league, then 3 spots are remaining, but if I do 14 then 5 spots are remaining.

- Mt. Crushmore

count me in also!

My draft preference is after preseason, just because of injuries and whatnot, but during preseason works too.

Count me in... this year I have a lot more time on my hands and a lot less adjusting to do in regards to college and jobs and all. I'll put in the 110% required for being a great team. Just hit me up with the info
