The FF Ghost — Dynasty League Football

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

I am The Ghost, if you get a win against me you deserved it.

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

It doesn’t matter, they’re all as faceless to me as I am to them.

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

I wanted my first starting QB early so I got Wilson much higher (second round) than I’d normally grab a QB. Beckham also fell to me in the first so I just had to take him. Normally in a redraft I would have hit RB early and often but I waited until the third to grab Gordon and followed him with the last weekly startable RB player left with Morris. After that Kelce was just sitting there so it was an obvious choice. Then I grabbed another QB who can put up good numbers in Rivers. From there I took value as it presented itself and got some excellent WRs and a stable of five TEs that are just devastating. I severely weakened the position for my leaguemates by stocking up there. It should pay excellent dividends down the road.

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 or not but people are constantly amazed by the sheer amount of data/information I can process without the need or a computer/all in my head.

Kyle Robert — Fake Pigskin

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

I cover anything and everything fantasy football for Fakepigskin.com. Ive played fantasy sports for over 10 years. -@notoriouskro.

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

Besides everyone? If you ain’t first, you’re last. Playoffs or bust.

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

I started letting the draft come to me but found myself reaching on running backs. Getting .25 a carry helps some of the plodding running backs have value. Going to make my qbs work. The difference between the mid to late tier qbs is minor.

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

My Xbox skills are on a high level. Find me on Madden, Fifa and Rory Mcilroy PGA Tour 15.

Darren Armani — Fantasy Mojo

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

I am FantasyMojo. Long time high stakes fantasy football player, going back to the inaugural WCOFF in Vegas 2002. Proprietor of FantasyMojo.com. Innovator of the Pros vs Joes Draft Challenge which I have been collaborating with for 7 years now with the FFPC (Fantasy Football Players Championship). I do not tweet as often as the rest of the folks here, but @fantasymojo is worth a follow.

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

I have at least seen The FF Ghost before, and I think think I have been in a few Draftmasters in the past with him. I will probably pay more attention than usual when I play him, but to take the position that I want to take him down is probably a stretch.

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

Having played this competition for many years, starting two reliable QB’s each week is essential. Brady and Brees are strong anchors in this respect. While Brady is “doing time” at the beginning at the season, Bortles will be an adequate sub at flex. After he comes back, I will be set. Those guys don’t miss games.

I had the first pick overall, so with the generous bonus for rushing attempts, Adrian Peterson was a no brainer. My other options at RB are a buffet of pass catching backs so I think will be ok there in this PPR format. I punted on TE’s. Dwayne Allen and Jared Cook are startable, but that position is really deep, and I only plan to start 1 TE each week. TE’s can be obtained off the waiver wire as well if need be.

But bottom line, it is all about the WR’s for me with the ability to start 6 of them.
I intend to start max WR’s each week, so I emphasized that position during the draft.

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

I am a software engineer by trade. The colorized grids that Scott utilized are actually generated by my website. As far as I know, they are the only real time draft grid colorization tool available on the internet for MyFantasyLeague. They are free to use for anyone running an MFL league.

I am the Gridiron Scholar and have worked with the FootballDiehards.com for nearly 20 years. Both NFL and CFF are my forte.

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

I am not a trash talker and looking forward to the competition this season.

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

I loaded up on pass-catching RBs and patiently waited to grab quarterbacks. I look forward to seeing if the strategy works. It is a new format for me to participate in this season.

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

I am a full-time teacher in high school and an adjunct at a local community college.

@Iplsports2John

I’ve been participating in Fantasy Football since 2000 and writing about it since 2007. I created the Intercollegiate Pro Leagues, a group of fantasy leagues based on using real college names and highly active owners.

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

Myself. I strive to be the best and the harder that I compete the better my team will be.

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

I basically employed the scarcity strategy. I made sure that I had two very good quarterbacks, two good running backs and two good tightends. I will play the two quarterbacks each week because they almost guarantee at least 20 points each. The two good tight ends should compensate any weaknesses that I have at receiver each week.

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

The ability to improvise, adapt and overcome!

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

I’m on Twitter @gdula13. I’m mainly into fantasy football for the strategy. I’m not big on planting my flag in certain players and taking a stance because circumstances change, so I’m usually a bit of a wet blanket and skeptic in overpaying for a certain name.

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

I’d have to say Travis Rowe. We picked side-by-side in the draft this year and actually did the same last season in the ALF Division (what are the odds?). We have a friendly back-and-forth because of it.

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

Pretty much the same as usual. Wait on quarterback until I absolutely have to draft them. So many other positions can be started (like seven receivers in a PPR format) that I think that’s where the real value is.

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

I have never lost to anyone in Super Mario Kart on the Super Nintendo. #TeamKoopaTroopa

I Play alot of Dynasty, Im known as a outside the box thinker and a big time trader @chris_iyoupe [Zach note: The hash tag #trader is not about you.]

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

IPL Sports – John Willette I believe we were in the same division last year very good FF drafter

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

Once i took Gronk and Rodgers at the end of round 1 i knew i was going to have to draft boom bust players at RB and WR I decided to take 2 high end TE’s to supplement my lack of studs at rb and WR and made sure i had 2 top 10 qbs to play week in and week out

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

Um i Surf and i like to restore old homes and wood furniture

My fantasy football “personna” is me overthinking every strategical move I make and trying not to look stupid. [Zach note: He’s looking at my cheat sheet.] Find him on Twitter at @btr331.

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

I don’t really know anyone in my division but I would like to take down two guys in my conference. The first is Shawn Siegele because I’m a huge fan of the stuff he writes. The second is Davis Mattek because he scared me into thinking Odell Beckham wasn’t good so I didn’t take him at the 1.13 in my hometown dynasty rookie draft.

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

I subscribe to the late round QB theory (copyright JJ Zachariason) because I’d rather start seven wide receivers (3 WR, 4 Flexes) in this league and see if I can gain any advantage that way. I also think I got a good mix of volatile WRs and high floor PPR guys as well.

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

The amount of knowledge I possess about the Game of Thrones books. I spend way too much time reading conspiracy theories about the books. My wife thinks I have a problem.

Will Seelbach — Fan

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

I am just a long time FF degenerate who gets more and more sucked in every year. I think I am a better player than I most likely am after my Top 10 finish in the 2014 Scott Fish Bowl.

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

To be honest, I wasn’t very familiar with any of the competitors in my division. So based off of drafting, I’m going to have to say Darren Armani from Fantasy Mojo is the owner I want to take down most. Being the competitor I am, I want to take down the best. I feel he came away from the draft with the strongest team. Plus he snipped me quite a few times taking two players on the turn from the 1 slot and me in the 3.

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

Coming out of the 3 slot, I wanted Le’Veon Bell or AP in the 1st round. After that, I wanted to go best available player with two side motives. First, I wanted one strong QB early and then wanted to wait a long time for my second. I didn’t really want to end up with Foles, but I kept getting snipped when I had a target, so I kept sliding back until there really was only few starters left to choose from. Next, I wanted to wait on TE’s with Eifert as my target TE. I really think he is going to emerge as a Top 5 TE this season and loved how late you could get him. I also took a two more high upside TE’s in Jordon Reed and Eric Ebron that could produce Top 10 numbers. I think my TE strategy played out a lot nicer than my QB strategy.

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

I don’t know about shock and awe, but I was a competitive swimmer at a Big Ten university and consider myself one of the most competitive people I know. I love competing, win or lose, against the best competition, and I will do whatever it takes, within the rules of fair play, to win. That is why I greatly appreciate the opportunity to compete, as a fan, in the #SFB360
