Nick Whalen — Dynasty League Football

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

Intro: I specialize in the devy and dynasty side of FF. Owner of Saturday2sundayfootball podcast and The Devy Report.

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

Division: Due to being sniped, Shawn Siegel is on my sfb “hit list.”

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

Strategery: Value. I didn’t want to take TE’s early in this draft, but I couldn’t ignore the potential impact they could have on my team. I also enjoyed how it limited the pool of TE’s for the rest of the division, sorry i’m not sorry.

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

Shock and awe: My ex-gf won the Miss World competition.

James Dotson — 360SportsNetwork

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

I have played fantasy football since I was a ten, been a fantasy sports expert for @3SNetwork for the past six years. I create customizable cheat sheets for the site each year and use my own personal math equation to run the numbers.

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

Everybody! I have no arch rival, every week is a rivalry week!

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

My intention was to go WR heavy and get QBs and RBs late in the draft. However, where some players fell in the order made me completely flip flop my strategy. Having a QB flex made the Tom Brady suspension a lot easier to swallow. After that, the late rounds was all about value especially with RBs who are starting as backups or RBBC. I honestly have no idea how to feel about my team.

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

I teach AP Calculus and Trigonometry as my day job. And yes, of course I bring fantasy football into my classroom!

Zach Bahner — Dynasty League Football

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

I don’t really have a “persona,” unless constantly winning and making my opponents cry is considered one.

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

I really want to take down Clayton Gray because he drafted the slowest. But there’s also Kent Dougall. That guy is a total jerk.

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

Well, I haven’t played redraft in two or three years, so my strategy was to do the exact opposite of Nathan Powell and Russell Clay. I figured that their strategy in dynasty was about the exact opposite of what I should do in redraft. I also went QB early, because I semi-incorrectly figured there would be a huge run in the second and third rounds.

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

I’m a guitarist and bassist who spent a year a half as a touring musician. I’m not very talented, but I tricked a band into hiring me for awhile.

Brian Jodoin — Fake Pigskin
Clayton Gray — Football Guys
RC — Junkyard Jake

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

Post-modern sensibility, devout Libertarian, delusional Jets fan, honorary Ghost-buster. Good outdoor survival skills. [Zach note: Until the Jets part, I thought this might be Ron Swanson.]

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

I must say, with this very unique format, it is rather difficult to ascertain who exactly is in your particular division, and setting lineups is no easy task either (usually takes 3-4 tries to navigate all the flex possibilities). So I consulted with my research team, and they said that New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is possibly in my group. Not sure if this is actually the case, but if so, I look forward to taking down this corpulent, Cowboy-fan, boorish bully. I also look forward to finding a new research team, as these guys are clearly not very good.

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

Well, whatever it was, it didn’t work out too good, as I just noticed that Geno Smith is on my roster. I believe my original criteria was to secure two QBs that I had confidence in within the first five rounds (Stafford and Carr). After that, since most high-potential QBs were gone by round 6, the criteria was to pick a #3 QB with no major felonies within the last 5 years and a Wonderlic score over 10. Since I ended up with Geno Smith as my #3, this criteria probably needs to be tweaked, and I will add two additional standards in future multiple QB drafts: 1) Credit score over 700 and 2) Ability to take a punch.

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

Can defuse most Russian-made explosive devices with common kitchen utensils.

Ladd Davies — numberFire

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

I don’t have too much of a “personna” anymore, per se. Used to write for several sites. Now my twitter feed is football, baseball, and randomness. I can be found at @Ladd_FF.

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

Probably Zach Bahner. Bcz, reasons. Comin’ for ya beard-y boy.

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

Not much of a set-in-stone sort of plan. Just take the highest upside, really. I had first overall pick and went ahead and took Luck due to questions over Le’Veon Bell’s appeal status and overall skepticism of top RBs.

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

That would have to be my fascination with voice impressions. I’m particularly proud of my selection of Disney characters, including but not limited to: Stitch, Mr. Smee, as well as the main mouse himself, Mickey Mouse.

Anthony Staggs — Pyromaniac

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

@pyroman1ac is a fantasy football website that mixes the visual, intellectual, and every day side of fantasy football together into a melting pot. With a group ranging from statistical analysts to player personnel gurus to designers we have a diverse look and feel to fantasy football.

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

@chubchubmcgrubb – Robert Marino, as a fan of our site, we want to beat him at our own game. Plus we did a pre #SFB360 mock draft and had some of our picks sniped, so as they say… Game on!

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

We felt it was important to get the best talent at the running back and wide receiver positions while selecting QBs in good offenses with upside. That led us to Eli Manning and the Eagles QB as potential starters on a weekly basis.

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

I bet I am one of the few #FF experts who can turn in a sub 5 second 40 yard dash. [Zach note: I can…in a car.]

Ricky Sanders — RotoExperts
Robert Marino — Fan

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

@chubchubmcgrubb is a guy sitting at his work computer, laptop, or phone listening to podcasts, reading articles, researching football statistics, and winning leagues. He hesitantly connected Mike Pliss and Scott Fish together after trying with no success to get an advantage over the league by having live, accurate ADP throughout the drafts; he’s glad it worked out the way it did.

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

Pyromaniac of course. I listen to them regularly, promote them everywhere I can except to leaguemates, and I think they know what they’re doing. Last year I beat Micah James and won my divison so I’d like to follow that trend in 2015 as well. I can’t confirm it isn’t my B.O. but I think I smell a side bet.

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

Despite what pre-draft talk I put out there or what Pyro believes, I pretty much stuck to my personal tiers and made no attempts to snipe anyone. I wanted to draft in the same manner I did last year, one RB then WR-heavy but tossed that aside picking up Peyton in the 4th and getting value with some ADP-falling pass-catching RBs.

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

I conquer many food challenges set by restaurants. My coworkers and employer can confirm that I once consumed a 5-lb burrito in one sitting, approximately 5″ x 8″ x 3″, and I was only 135lbs at the time.

James Tasso — Fan
Kent Dougall — Fan

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

I tend to get sucked into things. A few years ago, I tried fantasy with some friends and have been residing in the fantasy black hole ever since. My wife will tell you it eats way too much of my free time, but I’m sure she will change her tune when I take home the SFB title! @Kentd99

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

Has to be @BahnerFFett – Really nice guy, but there’s an MFL10 entry side bet on the line so he has to wallow in the misery of defeat (sorry Zach).

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

Knew for sure I did not want to be left out in the cold on QB. It felt like I reached a bit on Cam, but think he offers the upside needed in this format. RB heavy was not the plan going in, but everyone just kept ignoring them so I went with it. The .25 PPC was underestimated in my opinion.

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

People rave about my cooking/baking. My crawfish pie is pretty damn good if I do say so myself and my Italian cream cake is divine.
