Anthony Fashoda — Draft Buddy

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

I’m @tony25f, a fantasy football enthusiast and dedicated writer for Draft Buddy. My go-to fantasy team name is “Team Bring It,” for those that know what that means, kudos to you. You want some, come get some!

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

Sam Hendricks or Vincent Frank; strictly based off of average time waiting for pick to be made, they took the longest.

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

Last year was my first year in the fantasy football writing business, so it was pleasure to be accepted into the SFB240. I backed into the finals using my “ingenious and unique” strategy of considering this a 2QB league. Unfortunately, Peyton Manning took a dump in the championship, which ended my Cinderella story. So I applied same theory this year and loaded up on ball-catching talent. We’ll see how it plays out.

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

I can run a 4.8 sec 40 yard dash, not fast for NFL standards, but pretty darn fast for an “average joe”

David McCrea — Dynasty Football Warehouse
Sam Hendricks — FantasyFootballGuidebook

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

Over the past twenty-five years of playing I have authored four major books on Fantasy Football (Fantasy Football Guidebook, Fantasy Football Tips, Fantasy Football Basics and the Fantasy Football Almanac). Follow me on twitter at Fantasy_Fball

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

Vincent Frank from Pro football Focus and David Mccrea of Dynasty Football Warehouse have outstanding teams. They are the ones to beat in my opinion. Both have three great to good QBs which is essential in a league where a QB can flex.

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

I wanted to have at least three starting QBs so that two could always be in my lineup. QBs score the most so one of them needs to fill a flex position every week. My WR position is a little weak but hopefully I can get some FA to help out.

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

In 1989 I “ran the bulls of Pamplona” without any injury. It is one of many traits I developed over my career as a USAF fighter pilot in the F-4 and f-15E.

Jason Willan — Gridiron Experts

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

My fantasy football persona is “The Fantasy Consultant” and I can be found tweeting at @ConsultFantasy. I combine a long-standing love for all things fantasy with aspects of my career in commodity consulting to provide people actionable advice that hopefully gives them a strategic advantage over the competition.

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

I would like to take down Vincent Frank and Sam Hendricks because they regularly caused the draft to grind to a halt in the Bill Brasky division.

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

I like to get quarterbacks early in superflex or 2QB formats, so I locked down Brees and Roethlisberger in the first four rounds, while otherwise focusing primarily on running backs. There is plenty of depth at receiver this year, so I was comfortable waiting until the 7th round to get my WR1.

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

I like to think I’m a bit of an expert on bourbon and horse racing. Being from Kentucky, both of those things are pretty firmly ingrained in my DNA.

Mike Loyko — NEPatriotsDraft
Jim Kloet — RotoViz

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

@jimkloet (Kloet rhymes with flute) I’m a data scientist by day with a background in academic research, so I try to take an objective, data-driven approach to fantasy football. I don’t believe that we can measure or predict everything worth measuring or predicting, but I think the best takes are those supported by appropriate and thoughtful statistical analyses.

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

Fantasy Football Guidebook – Sam Hendricks, for not letting Jimmy Graham make it all the way back to me at the end of the 3rd round (and literally no other reason).

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

I was drafting at 1.12, which was a lot of fun in a draft like this. I wanted two QBs with elite potential with my first two picks, so I was happy to grab Russell Wilson and Peyton Manning at the 1-2 turn. From there I turned to RBs, both because of the weird per-carry bonus in this format, and because the RB options were dwindling by 3.12. Frank Gore and Joseph Randle both project to be the lead ball carriers on their respective teams, so I was happy to scoop them up. From there, I started to stockpile WRs to capitalize on the variance within in the position. I took Brandon Marshall and Andre Johnson at the 5-6 turn, and later added Anquan Boldin, Dwayne Bowe, Miles Austin, among others. I think I found good value in aging veterans, and I’m pretty happy with the composition of my team.

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

I’ve been brewing beer for almost 10 years, so if you’re ever in Chicago, drop me a line – I’m happy to share! [Zach note: I’m awed.]

Aaron Solomon — Rotoworld

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

I used to work in corporate banking and fantasy sports are (way) more enjoyable. Applying analytics, dealing with data scarcity and mass psychology, wired-in behavior (see CD Carter/Renee Miller/Chris Brown for their must-read books) and other tools from the financial (and poker) world apply perfectly well (possibly even better) in fantasy sports. I evolved from a 49ers fan at Candlestick into earning money from football when I wrote software for the Bears back in the day. They used forms of analytics computers could help with way back in the 80’s, surprised? Finding that advantage over one’s opponents is universal.

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

I want to beat whoever I am playing. Wish the best of success to my opponents (in their other leagues).

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

Strategery: I started by adjusting my PPR projections to integrate 2-QB strategies. As the draft alternatively crawled, tiptoed and slogged its way through and my players were often sniped it became clear that my first #sfb360 season was a learning experience. Everyone clearly adjusts their strategies seasonally and throughout the draft as runs are started and hot takes and injuries are reported.

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

Shocking non-fantasy football talent: Raising teenagers.

Jonathan Smith — Fan

@sjonathan02 hates QBs, loves WRs. PPR4LYFE

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

I want to beat Josh Groll, the most

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

Get all the WRs was my strategery, and some RBs

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

Don’t know how shocking this would be: I’m a singer (mainly in church as a member of the praise team…I used to lead the team, though)
Derek Willett — Fan

Josh Groll — Fan

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

My twitter handle is @mr_groll. I like to consider myself the Liam Neeson of fantasy football, and Randy Moss is my hero.

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

I hope to take down Doug Veatch. He’s a very well known gentleman in the dynasty community, and I like following him on twitter, plus I hate the Lions. [Zach note: Can anyone hate the Lions? Perhaps pity.]

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

My only real strategery is to survive, and draft Teddy Bridgewater, your 2016 NFL MVP.

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

I enjoy boxing in my free time, and actually train with Rick Spielman. Skol Vikes.
