I think of fantasy sports as a chess game with the owner pool improving each season. My goal as a fantasy owner and information provider; is to get in touch with the player pool as much as possible while also merging that information with the expected draft flow to create a winning edge. @CCsDesperados

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

With this being my rookie season with a unique set of rules, I’m probably the guppy in the FISH Bowl so I need to take them all down.

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

I thought it was important to own depth at the QB position to play as one of the flex options. I wanted to roster one QB early in the second or third round pick, but I couldn’t resist when Cobb fell to me in the 3rd. A running QB like Russell Wilson or Cam Newton had extra value in this format, but my timing was off once I fell behind in the draft flow. I drafted Stafford, Brady. Winston, Manuel and Garopollo with my last pick just in case something negative happed with the Brady news.

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

While I don’t have many talents, I can bowl left and right handed. I suffered a bad right wrist injury when I was 17 that required me to miss a year of bowling at the junior level. I decided to stay in the game and bowl lefty. At first it was more of a gimmick and I didn’t invest a tough to time on my left arm over a 30 year period of my bowling career. After finishing with a 213 average bowling righty in the 2012/2013 season, I thought I was under achieving my skill set so I decided to bowl left handed in league over the last two years. In the 2013/2014, I finished at 215 despite only making about 70 percent of my seven pin chances. I followed up that year with a 214 average on what would call easier lane conditions. A seven week slump mid-season led to regression.

In general, I think that fantasy team managers adopt too conservative of an approach and it’s always good to be aggressive with waiver picks, trades and starts on the active roster. I hate chasing good performances, it’s always better to anticipate and take advantage of them! @drinkfive

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

Hmm, I suppose Bob Slaughter. Looks like he won in 2011 and as a new entrant to the league, I’d certainly like to make a mark! 🙂

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

I’m actually involved in several leagues that allow for multiple QBs to be played at a time. The most important thing in these leagues is to secure 3 quarterbacks because after the draft, there will not be any available. Unfortunately I ended up with the Texans’ less-than-stellar situation, but I was able to get both Mallett and Hoyer so I’ll have whichever QB ends up on top of the scrap pile there.

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

I play guitar and sing in two bands in the Chicago area – I think this year I’ll write and record a few fantasy football related parody songs. Maybe you’ll see me on YouTube. 🙂

A. Don Davenport — Fake Pigskin

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

I’m primarily focused on a very narrow window of fantasy football – the 2QB Dynasty format. I find the positional scarcity of this format fascinating and managing the usage of the startup and rookie drafts to build a team with this scarcity in mind is what I discuss weekly on fakepigskin.com. My twitter handle is @adondavenport

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

There’s another worthwhile team in my division to be concerned about? 😉

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

My strategy was to draft running backs for the first five rounds before looking to other positions. I couldn’t have been happier to get Martellus Bennett, Cutler and Dalton later in the draft. As long as my running backs make up for the probable mediocre scoring of my wide receivers (which I believe they will), I should I have a shot at the big time.

I can lick my nose. But no, I will not do a demonstration… haha

Jay Myers — Dynasty Football Warehouse

Russell Clay — Dynasty League Football

Ivar Anderson — Fantasy Alarm

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

My persona? I play in 20+ fantasy football league every season: dynasty, keeper, redraft on several different platforms. I also write for Fantasy Alarm about IDP. I prefer to play in leagues that employ IDP roster positions, but that is not essential to bring me on-board. My twitter handle is @johnwhorfin.

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

I want to beat everyone, obviously. Since Bob Slaughter (2011 Champion Fan) drafted right before me and kept sniping my picks, I guess he’s got a target on his back if anyone does.

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

My strategy was to load up on running backs and to a lesser extent, second tier QBs (Cam and Eli), waiting on WR and TE. I do play in other “super flex” leagues, so I have realized that solid QB depth is essential.

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

I am an excellent cook. Not just grilling, although I do own both a grill and a smoker, but making full meals in my kitchen. Not that surprising, but certainly a different skill set.

My name is Bryce Coyle but most that know me (other than my mother and wife) know me as Slim — follow me on twitter @slim4MVP. I contribute to the site and podcast The Fantasy Football Auction which is a group that only focuses on auction style fantasy football drafts.

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

Fan Darnell Bright. Why? Because he took Clive Walford in the 8th round. I was going to take him in the 19th so I am upset with him for sniping me.

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

Like “Dubya” likes to do in super flex leagues, I wanted to go a little contrarian in the sense that I was going to wait at RB and QB. I talked myself into taking CJ Anderson at 2.01, but after that I took pass catchers till 7.12. I just feel like in a 360 person league you need to buck the trends to differentiate your team from the masses. Could work, could blow up in my face.

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

Does watching real football count? I do that fairly well according to my wife.

Chris Cheung — Sundays are for football

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

My name is Chris Cheung, aka @SomethingAbtFtb on twitterverse. I started my dynasty journey about 4 years ago. I enjoy experimenting with different strategies, philosophies, and challenging people to come up with new ideas to have fun. My first and foremost goal is to have an enjoyable experience rather than enroll in high-stakes leagues. My writing reflects that.

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

here are lots of challengers, but I think my two biggest challengers are @ADonDavenPort and @RusselJClay, both of who were sniping me left and right in the 360

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

I punted on RBs early, because I could not bring myself to reach for one. I was fortunate to land two strong QBs in the first four rounds, which was my initial goal should I land Luck or ARod with my 1st pick. The rest of the draft I monitor the flow and try to anticipate what positions will be heavily targeted in the mid-rounds.

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

I speak Dutch

I’ve been playing fantasy football for a few years now, and usually end up with a decidedly mediocre record, despite putting lots of research in. I tried to use a little less strategy in SFB this year. Twitter handle: I’m too hipster for any of that jazz

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

Well, I don’t know any of them personally, but since Don Davenport sniped me on a lot of picks during our draft, I’m going to say him

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

My strategery was to use less strategery and not overthink draft picks. With a 24 hour clock, you could put in TOO much research. So I just believed in myself, ’cause that’s the way to start (to quote the Arthur theme song)

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

I’m not sure if this qualifies as a “talent”, but I’m damn good at ‘alt-tabbing’ away from fantasy news during my work hours.

Darnell Bright — Fan

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

Well My name is Darnell A.Bright and my Twitter handle is FantasyFootballWiz.i started playing fantasy football with fellow employees at work and got extremely interested.

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

I really wanna take out A.Don Davenport.

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

[Zach note: No strategery here.]

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

Bob Slaughter –Fan

I’m @Augbob, I’ve been playing Fantasy sports religiously since I joined a league my freshman year in college. Olden times, before ANY fantasy websites or experts existed. On Tuesdays the commish would add scores by hand, out of the USA today box scores.

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

I want to beat everyone, repeatedly if possible. Changing divisions I’ve lost all my rivals, it turned out OK for the Seahawks though so I’m cautiously optimistic.

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

I already let my strategy slip so there’s no advantage keeping it in house. I’ve always approached this league as a 2Qb ppr with two flex spots. I’d be happier with more than one championship, but I’m proud to hold the most individual trophies in league history. And to have made it to the playoffs every year so far (knock on wood). It’s a new season, we’re all 0-0, and I’m feeling good about some of my late round prospects.

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

Let’s see, I’m an avid advanced open water and cavern Diver, blessed to be on semi permanent vacation here in St Augustine FL.
