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

JAG sponging football knowledge from the likes of Josh Norton, Daniel Jeremiah, Matt Waldman, Matt Williamson and other great minds in the industry.

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

There’s really nobody in particular that I want to take down more than another. It’s a pretty weak division, and should be a cakewalk to the conference finals.

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

My strategy was to use Karl Safchicks dynasty rankings. The lack of longterm weight that goes into his rankings is perfect for a “win now” redraft league.

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

I feel uncomfortable blowing my own horn but I do make a pretty tasty & juicy cheeseburger on the grill. Secret is to make a paste with a couple slices of white bread (holds the juices), Worcester sauce, salt, pepper, garlic cloves, and ketchup. Mash with fork and combine with 80% lean beef mixed with minced scallions. Don’t over mix it, or it will be tough. I use a process cheese or brei for its high melting capability and carmalize my onions with a can of Coke. MUstard as my BBQ sauce(uncooked side) Flip once and please, no burger pressing. [Zach note: Well I’m hungry.]

Karl Safchick — Dyansty League Football

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

I’d consider my persona to be a well-rounded fantasy analyst. I use a common sense approach and attempt to bring as much comedic value to the game as possible.

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

I most want to bring down Matt Harmon. I hate how amazing his hair looks and I’m jealous.

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

My strategy during the #SFB360 was to evaluate what my opponents were doing and zigging when they zagged. It seemed as though wide receivers were going a bit earlier than I anticipated, so I was comfortable waiting on them while grabbing value at other positions.

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

I have the ability to turn my nose up at inferior beer choices faster than a speeding bullet. I don’t know, bro. I write about fantasy football for a living. Obviously I’m not a very talented individual.

Scott Osterloah — FFEvilEmpire

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

My Twitter handle is @FF_Evilempire. I just got into writing about fantasy football last year, and I focus mainly on Dynasty and IDP, but I love all fantasy football.

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

None really… But if I had to pick one, Adam Pfeiffer

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

Early QBs, and an eye toward second half of the season ease of schedule.

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

I can move my pinky toe independently of the rest of my toes (on either foot).

Matt Harmon — NFL.com/Football Guys

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

I am a fantasy football writer and editor for NFL.com, and the creator of the Reception Perception methodology for evaluating wide receivers. I can be found Twitter at @MattHarmon_BYB.

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

Oh, definitely Karl Safchick of DynastyLeagueFootball.com. Karl and I got some beers together before I left the east coast to move to California. While I find him to be an engaging and entertaining friend, I certainly want to bring him down in this league. Karl is one of those analysts who is very firm and entrenched in their positions on players, and of course, I very much respect that. However, that only makes me want to show him how much smarter I am even more. As a tall man, I’ll enjoy reminding a short fella like Safchick that I stand tall over him in more than one way.

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

I really tried to not fall into the rush for quarterbacks early routine that many go victim to in these sorts of drafts. Of course, that left me with Joe Flacco and Jameis Winston as my top quarterbacks, but I am more than fine with that considering what I was able to stockpile elsewhere. Having a WR1/2 combination as strong as Demaryius Thomas and DeAndre Hopkins, with a surefire RB1 like DeMarco Murray, along with interesting pieces like Allen Robinson, C.J. Spiller and Duke Johnson is much more appealing to me than reaching for a quarterback at any point. I still have the option of sticking Winston in that flex, especially since I think he will regularly have a two touchdown upside in favorable matchups as a rookie, when I choose to. The QB flex option also made me excited to take Tyrod Taylor towards the end of the draft. Should he win the job, we know his rushing upside will make him usable some weeks in fantasy. Overall, I wanted to take advantage of the ability to start multiple receivers, and go for high upside in a league where I’m looking to beat out 359 opponents for the top prize, over chasing quarterbacks.

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

I’m not sure if this is surprising, but I can play the guitar and the banjo. Football has taken over much of my time lately, but music was my first true passion. The way we can express ourselves through music is one of the more beautiful gifts human beings possess.

Michael Comerford — numberFire

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

I like to find value throughout the draft but I really believe leagues are won through the season via the waiver wire.

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

Everyone, want to try to be the champ!

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

Always trying to find value as the draft progresses but focused on RB’s and WR’s up front.

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

Still trying to find it.

Been playing Fantasy Sports since High School whether it was just for bragging rights or high stakes. Also worked in the Sports book industry for 6 plus years which has been my main expertise. Twitter handle is @RotoZak

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

Would love to take down the entire league right? Adam Pfeiffer seems to have the most well rounded team so I’m eyeing him !!

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

Had to go QBs early and work around it. Last year I seen so many tweets of managers waiting too late and being stuck with just back up QBs. Also stuck with seasoned WR’s so I knew what I was going to get out of that slot instead of going for that potential breakout candidate. Maybe played it too safe but we’ll see.

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

Elite World of Warcraft player for many years !! haha

Dedicated to God, my wife, my family, and my fantasy lineups. Order subject to change depending on the day and the results of the games.

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

I’ve got 2 of them. Karl Safchick sniped me more then once and is a respected Guru of the field. Also our Sports Underground Fan Winner Mark Hill, simply for competitive reasons. I don’t want our fans thinking they are better then me.

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

I focused on a newer 0 RB thought process. Basically no RBs drafted till the 5th round. Reasoning was 2 fold: A) Besides the “elite” tier of RBs, the sheer volume of WRs + QBs you can start was intriguing to me. B) The league is rapidly declining in elite tier RBs. I figured I could get by with some fliers that are high PPR prospects.

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

At 225 lbs, I’m not a marathon runner… But I’m uniquely fast in short distances.

Rare combination of stats and film. Sadly, not power and speed.

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

Easily Matt Harmon. Why? Well, he stole CJ Spiller from me.

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

Usually in a league where you draft 2QB, I want at least one of the elite tier guys and then I pair him with an upside guy later. Pretty solid combination with Peyton Manning, who I think will be more than fine, despite people writing him off, and Sam Bradford, who could legitimately be a QB1 in Philly. Since Chip Kelly took over the Eagles offense, Philly’s QB have scored at least 15 fantasy points 65 percent of the time.

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

Hmmm… Well, I can recite lines from Adam Sandler movies word for word. Not sure that’s a “talent” though. [Zach note: Of course it is.]

Mark Hill — Fan

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

My name is Mark Hill (@markhill321 on Twitter) and I have been playing fantasy football for over a decade. I play in 10 dynasty league and several redraft leagues each year. Superflex/2QB leagues are quickly becoming my favorite format to play in.

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

The person I want to take down the most would be Sean Tenerelli. I won a fan spot into the league by being selected on Twitter to go onto Sean’s radio show, The Sports Underground and compete in a trivia contest. I play Sean week 1, so after I destroy him it’s on to the rest of the division!

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

My strategy for #SFB360 was to start RB/RB (using VBD) if two of my top tier of RBs were there (got Jamaal Charles and C.J. Anderson). I also wanted to make sure I got 2 solid QBs along with a good 3rd option (got Cam Newton, Tom Brady, and Derek Carr). Finally, I wanted to get several high upside WRs on my bench in the late rounds in hopes that one hits big (got Perriman, Parker, and Funchess). I’m really happy with how it played out!

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

I have been playing piano/keyboard for over 20 years. I took piano lessons from kindergarten all the way through high school and I’m glad I stuck with it. I have my own recording studio in my home and enjoy writing and recording new music.

High stakes player who’s been playing since ’94. Wouldn’t mind doing some work for a fantasy website in the near future. @Getpaddled

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

Karl Safchick or Justin Winn

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

I am a Tier drafter

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

I was a stuntman/cheerleader that won a national title back in my college days in 2002/2003

Sorry for the delay, was out backpacking for a couple of weeks and just getting caught up. My fantasy football persona is serious casual player, and tend to let my teams build themselves (no overarching strategy). Love dynasty and spend a decent amount of time on my teams year-round, but I limit the number of leagues I’m in due to work/life. Three dynasty leagues, Fish Bowl and Fish 1 to 128 are it for me this year. Only redraft I do is anything run by Scott.

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

I’d most like to take down Safchick. Not for any devious reasons, just a DLF fan and follow Karl on twitter.

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

I had the 4th pick and Rodgers fell to me, so I went with a one great QB later and wait a long time for the 2nd (Dalton in round 11). In between, I went fairly heavy on RB early, as I liked the value and think the scoring brings RBs up to importance with WRs. Hoping my later WRs like Beasley and Marvin Jones pay off a bit.

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

I’m a fairly competent bagpiper. Might not shock and awe, but I can drown out any complaints.
