Can you give me a two-sentence introduction to your fantasy football “personna”? Feel free to include your Twitter handle.

@ReganFP is so good at Fantasy Football that he started his own site to help others. As good as he is at Fantasy Football, he’s even better at Fantasy Supercross.

Who in your division do you want to take down the most?

It’s easily Brian Dezelske. Like every other year, I plan on being above his sorry ass in the standings.

What kind of “strategery” do you plan to employ during this unusual QB flex draft?

My strategy involves winning. If I told you, I’d have to kill you. I’m all jacked up on Mountain Dew Zach!

What is one non-fantasy football talent that would shock and awe the rest of the league?

I can out-ride anyone in this division on an ATV, and can outshoot them with a rifle, shotgun, or bow.

Note: Unique question for Spider Monkey Division participants taking me (Zach) on: How would you feel if you finish below me in the league standings? a) Just happy to be here b) Will throw a temper tantrum and get over it c) Worst day of my life

Your final question is irrelevant because I won’t be below you…

Andrew Jordan — Fantasy Force

I really don’t have a persona for my writing (@TheFantasyForce). I have my degree in Mass Communication focused in Journalism and have only ever wanted to be a great writer/essayist. As an avid fantasy football player, that was my avenue.

Who in your division do you want to take down the most?

Probably you Zach, we were in the same division last year also, so perhaps these are the beginnings of a monumental rivalry, the likes of which have never been known to the fantasy football community? [Zach note: Well the goal of comedy is to punch up, so you’re already behind the 8 ball.]

What kind of “strategery” do you plan to employ during this unusual QB flex draft?

After waiting on a QB last year (for Cam Newton no less) getting one early on was a priority. After that it was loading up on RBs and taking some boom or bust WRs.

What is one non-fantasy football talent that would shock and awe the rest of the league?

I don’t know if we would call it a talent but I spend a decent amount of time at the gym, powerlifting.

My persona is about makin’ that money. If you follow me on twitter (@BrianDezelske) you already know where I stand on this. I hear people say that if you’re looking to win money, then don’t play fantasy, because fantasy sports is about friendships and trash talk. This is the only league where that applies, because there is no fee to play. That stuff has importance, but I’m in it for the end result—lining my wallet.

Who in your division do you want to take down the most?

The guy I want to take down the most is Regan Yant. This dude talks so much trash. You’d think his mouth was a landfill.

What kind of “strategery” do you plan to employ during this unusual QB flex draft?

This year my strategy is simple: My plan is to avoid drafting players who will get injured during the season, or arrested for assaulting kids. I haven’t tried this particular strategy before. We’ll see what happens.

What is one non-fantasy football talent that would shock and awe the rest of the league?

I’m pretty good at binge-watching full seasons on Netflix.

Note: Unique question for Spider Monkey Division participants taking me (Zach) on: How would you feel if you finish below me in the league standings? a) Just happy to be here b) Will throw a temper tantrum and get over it c) Worst day of my life

The answer is D, none of the above. I don’t care if I finish 359th in this league (because there’s no money involved), just as long as Regan Yant finishes 360th. I hate that guy. (I actually love that flat-billed hat wearing mo-fo)

Pat Thorman — Pro Football Focus

We’re lucky to interact with so many folks who share our favorite pastime, so I try to be sure to do it respectfully. Keep the game in perspective, and have fun while advancing the conversation.

Who in your division do you want to take down the most?

Rich Hribar – because there’s no fantasy writer whose knowledge of the game I respect more. Plus it’d probably mean my team is somehow good enough to take down the whole #SFB360.

What kind of “strategery” do you plan to employ during this unusual QB flex draft?

I honestly don’t have a master plan for my first year other than “try not to embarrass yourself in this bloodbath of a division.” …but if I did it’d revolve around drafting all of Brady’s old backups.

What is one non-fantasy football talent that would shock and awe the rest of the league?

My Jart throwing prowess is legendary. It does help that a growing percentage of competitors hadn’t been born yet when they were banned.

Note: Unique question for Spider Monkey Division participants taking me (Zach) on: How would you feel if you finish below me in the league standings? a) Just happy to be here b) Will throw a temper tantrum and get over it c) Worst day of my life

My philosophy is to be A, even if it’s C …and tequila helps.

It’s me, @LordReebs. I’m just out here trying to turn a hobby into 15 cents so I can eventually push to make my first dollar.

Who in your division do you want to take down the most?

I don’t even know who any of these folks are. Seriously, this division looks extremely brutal and is filled with many people I’ve met, worked with or had fruitful back and forth with on Twitter. Oh, and you, Zach. I guess in the end, I really only want to beat you because I feel like you closet enjoy Lori Petty in Point Break. [Zach note: This is what I think when I read a Lord Reebs article.]

What kind of “strategery” do you plan to employ during this unusual QB flex draft?

Two things about the format that I think are important are loading up at the flex spots for a weekly advantage to get to those 8 wins necessary to make the playoffs, and knowing in the end you’ll eventually need multiple high ceiling players to close the deal in the postseason format. I’m really at the mercy of longer positional runs where I’m picking since I’ll be making picks relatively close to one another (1.09) each round. Knowing that, I’m going to sit back and let the board fall to me and try to pluck as much high-end talent that I can instead of pigeonholing one course from the start. Picking right next to Pat Thorman is also tough since we share a lot of similar fantasy notions, so this should be a challenging draft.

As am early to mid 30’s husband of eight years with two children, this is all I have left.

How would you feel if you finish below me in the league standings? a) Just happy to be here b) Will throw a temper tantrum and get over it c) Worst day of my life

I’ll manage, but it won’t be pretty. Probably get Tank Girl on Blu Ray and cry myself to sleep until next season.

Zach Law — Me

I am Zach, aka the Pompatus of Love. I thought it would be fun to try to interview 360 people.

Who in your division do you want to take down the most?

I hate everyone in the division equally, but on the same token I love everyone in the division equally.

What kind of “strategery” do you plan to employ during this unusual QB flex draft? Last year I took Aaron Rodgers at pick 1.02 and I probably won’t do that.

What is one non-fantasy football talent that would shock and awe the rest of the league? I do another podcast that has nothing to do with football.

I’d consider myself oldschool for sure..still love my RB. I’m a stubborn dude, don’t try to buy low on my underperforming stud. @unclepauly333

Who in your division do you want to take down the most?

Can’t really say there’s anybody I want to beat more than the next guy..I’m an equal opportunity kind of dude..I want to beat everyone.

What kind of “strategery” do you plan to employ during this unusual QB flex draft?

C’mon Zach..you want my strategy before the draft!?!?Just kidding..I’m taking the Kenny Darter approach. [Zach note: That’s Gronk in the first, Luck in the first, Seattle D in the first…]

What is one non-fantasy football talent that would shock and awe the rest of the league?

I’m not sure what the question is here? Looking for a sleeper? If so: Cole Beasley. [Zach note: Take Beasley early and blow Paul’s mind.]

11 year dynasty guy who only got in by winning DLF pick em challenge. No twitter handle.

Who in your division do you want to take down the most?

When I picked my division in late march, there wasn’t many ppl in yet. Took this division bc Yant was running his mouth.

What kind of “strategery” do you plan to employ during this unusual QB flex draft?

I haven’t played in a redraft league in close to 10 years, so I’ll probably pick all upside guys 2 rounds early.

What is one non-fantasy football talent that would shock and awe the rest of the league?

With two young kids, I’m really good at not getting any sleep.

Note: Unique question for Spider Monkey Division participants taking me (Zach) on: How would you feel if you finish below me in the league standings? a) Just happy to be here b) Will throw a temper tantrum and get over it c) Worst day of my life

I don’t know you so no big deal to me. Guess that corresponds to A.
