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

I don’t personally know anyone in my division so I would like to take them all down equally.

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

With the Superflex, I decided to start drafting the QB position much earlier than I normally would (5th round), but I still waited relative to my competition. Phil Rivers is my QB1, but with 0.25 points per rush attempt, I targeted a couple of running QBs (Colin Kaepernick, RG3) as well. After the elite three QBs, I think the 4-15 range is pretty similar, so I was happy to wait and grab a couple of QBs in the 10-15 range. I wasn’t planning to draft three running backs in the first four rounds, but I couldn’t pass up Frank Gore at 4.10.

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

I have deep 3PT range, out to 25 feet or so.

Adrian Janson — AussieGuysNFL

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

Well I’m AJ @aussieguysAJ – one of the Aussie Guys NFL podcast team! I would describe my FF persona as being a player who sits firmly in the middle group between the statisticians and the ones who go by feel! My picks aren’t always logical but I’ll happily defend them and let you know my reasoning behind them!

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

Like many of my colleagues in the Worldwide Prestige Div – I’m gunning for John Paulson from 4×4. I was aware of playing him in one of my worst bye weeks, so tried to plan for that in the later rounds of my draft.

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

I went QB much earlier than I would normally. I have heard people talking about trying to get a QB with some rushing upside, but I really just wanted to get 2 top 10 QBs if I could. I picked Romo and Tannehill in the 3rd and 4th and there was a mini run just before and after me, so I don’t think I could have timed it better. Other than that, I tried to get solid WRs and couple that with RBs in the middle rounds that could contribute (even if not immediately).

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

OK – what should I mention here? Well I can make cheese?? I’m not sure if that qualifies as a “shock and awe” skill however!! I am a teacher but have published several books on the side (none of them the next Harry Potter … well YET).

Andy Singleton — FantasyFiveStar

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

I go by the persona PeoplezPen, which is from the nickname Peoplez I was given for my gift of gab, and endless socializing and networking. I’m currently trying to use all three to grow my new YouTube channel The Nickel Press (@NickelPressShow), which attempts to take advantage of modern technology for the Fantasy Football loving world.

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

Without question it is Courtney Kirby. She embarrassed me last year when we were again in the same division, and then very un-lady like proceeded to taunt me with verbal assaults from her and her bully sisters for the remainder of the season. This year will be very different.

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

When I celebrated winning Austin Davis off the waiver wire I quickly realized QBs are huge in this league. I was determined not to make the same mistake, so grabbing two early was my goal. Any league that offers a Flex spot to a QB is essentially a 2-QB league in my book.

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

I don’t know if it’s a talent, and some do know, but I have been a firefighter in Brooklyn for the past 14 years. Getting involved as a contributor to the fantasy industry was a welcomed break from reality that I never knew would be so rewarding. It’s certainly shocked and awed me.

Jackson Safon — Freelance

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

I’m an amateur when it comes to fantasy writing and a new one at that, having only written for the former LevelUpFantasy for about 8 months. That being said, as a champion of my redraft leagues at home (when you’re in as many as me, it’s not that hard to win one), I’m pretty ready to be the champ of the #SFB360. @JacksonSafon

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

The division I want to take down the most is mine, Prestige Worldwide. Having my former editor at LevelUp in Andy Singleton, John Paulson, who I believe is one of the best there is, plus so many other smart people I drafted with, I would be ecstatic if I could take the title in our division,

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

As far as strategery goes, there were two things I wanted to make sure I had: a workhorse running back and two viable fantasy quarterbacks. I have never been in a league with points for carries, but at 250 carries, that’s an extra four points per week over the course of the whole season. With the superflex option, I feel that’s a must. With everything else, I just wanted to have fun, pick players I like personally, and to “pick the best and forget the rest” as they say.

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

As far as non-fantasy talents I possess, I would say I’m a pretty good golfer and would be happy to take on anyone in the SFB.

Courtney Kirby — Her Fantasy Football

I am the Host of Her Fantasy Football @herfantasyfb where my two sisters and I break it down by match-ups. I may be the youngest sister @CourtneyHerFFB, but don’t let that fool you, I know how to manage a team like a boss.

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

Of course I want to take down 359 teams, but I would enjoy taking down Andy Singleton again.

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

Well I was pick 12 so I didn’t get Luck or Rodgers. When I did go QB, I took my second QB pretty quickly. I made sure that my third QB was still a starter for byes.

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

I dominate Sudoku games.

Tyler Buecher — numberFire

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

I like to utilize statistics, advanced metrics, and past trends to find the best players at the best value. Fantasy football is a week to week competition, and finding consistent, dependable players is key for me. I’m available on the twitter machine at @gingersauce4u.

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

I’ve got my eye on the most accurate fantasy football expert, Mr. John Paulsen at 4for4. To repeatedly rank as highly as he does is an incredible feat, and I’m excited to compete against a top dog such as him.

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

I’m usually a late-round QB type, but with the QB-superflex I’ll be going for one in the first 5 rounds if I like the value. Otherwise I’ll be loading up on the RB’s and WR’s like it’s my job before looking at any TE’s. In a tournament like this with 359 other teams, I’ll be making some bolder picks than my usual less-aggressive drafting style. Gambling on some bounce-back years from unlikely candidates and a few rookies may be needed to separate from the pack.

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

I once solved a Rubik’s cube in 1 minute, 15 seconds.

Dynasty Fantasy Football Central / Pro Football Focus contributor. @dynasty_ffc. Definitely one of the more conservative fantasy players out there. I also use Rotoworld religiously.

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

Everyone

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

As this is my second year in this league, I tried to get two top-10 options. I think I accomplished that with Brees and Big Ben.

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

I’m fairly proficient in Franchise Mode of Madden. Which is as close to non-fantasy football you can get.

Kevin Steele — RotoEdgeSports

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

My twitter handle is @FantasyWrath13. If I had to describe my twitter persona it would be like a mullet. On Sunday’s it’s business, but the rest of the week it’s time to get rowdy.

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

This division is full of a bunch of no good snipes. My picks were routinely sniped by these fools. If I was going to pick one person I wanted to take out it would probably be John Paulsen. The man has ice water running through his veins when it comes to rankings. If I was going to go with the less obvious answer, I would go with Andy Singleton. He sniped the largest amount of players I was targeting in my draft. I actually think he hacked my draft board.

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

I didn’t come in with a set strategy. I just wanted to get the BPA. I knew I had to grab a top of the line QB, so I went with Rodgers. After that, I just wanted to go with the best player available on my rankings.

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

I have an exceptional memory, well except when my girlfriend asks me to do anything, then I have the worst memory.

I’m Daniel Williams and have been playing Fantasy Sports since 1983 .. F.Football since 1990 and High Stakes since 2004. My Twitter handle is @DanielEWilliam2

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

Ultimately my goal is to take down the so-called “experts” of the league .. not one team, but all of them.

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

Last year I went aggressive to get 2 QB’s and my depth at other positions were lacking, which resulted in a up and down season .. mostly down. This season, completely scrapped that strategy and drafted normally. I have an old team .. but getting JCharles, JNelson, RCobb, JEdelman .. made me very happy.

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

Did not there was such a thing as having a “non-fantasy” football talent. lol. My life revolves around family, work, football and beer. Not much else to worry about.

David Mellem — Fan

I’m on Twitter at @davidmellem, not sure what my ‘persona’ would be, but I enjoy wheeling and dealing (except for in the fish bowl!) and generally go old-school, like RB-RB to a fault.

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

I’m here to take down everyone in the division, but I do have to say from last year that there’s a certain joy to be taken in beating up on the pros.

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

My strategy this year, as it was largely last year, was to take advantage of the scoring and starting lineup differences in this league compared to most. The way to do this is to go VERY RB and QB heavy early on in the draft, and I’m not afraid to say it because I know people will refuse to do it next year just like they do every year. They are just so heavily weighted, points-wise, and so scarce, that you really have to get them early and often. The real skill is finding sleeper WRs to fill out your lineup.

As far as non fantasy football talents go? I will challenge ANYONE in the league to some NHL15. Nobody stands a chance.

You can find me on twitter @FantasyFreshman
I’m a die hard dynasty guy. Always up for some player debate.

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

This one is easy, I want to take down John Paulsen. He’s well respected in the fantasy community. I want to squish him like a grape!

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

I went into the draft planning to load up on WR and wait on QB. One of those played out. I waited on QB until round 7. I ended up seeing value at RB and took 4 by round 6.

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

I played a lot of lacrosse growing up here in Canada. I doubt anyone is at my level.
