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

I am a 13-year fantasy football veteran and a one-time staff writer (5 seasons) for the award-winning Bruno Boys Fantasy Football, and I am taking some time off as a writer to just sit back and enjoy fantasy football. I’m always down to chat all things fantasy sports on Twitter @rarleo

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

I actually haven’t had the pleasure of getting to know anyone in my division too well just yet, but I plan on changing that during the course of the year and finding some friendly rivals.

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

In my fourth season in Scott’s fantastic tournament style league, I made sure to grab my two quarterbacks relatively early (Ryan and Romo) because I’ve made the mistake of getting stuck with one starting QB out of the gate… and it’s not fun. I also went with handcuffs, grabbing Mason and Gurley, as well as Knile Davis for Jamaal Charles.

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

Not only do I have double jointed thumbs, but I am also in my second season working for MLB.com as an editorial producer.

Jason Foster — Dynasty League Football

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

I have been in leagues of various formats for about 15 years, from a 16-team points-only redraft league (where the commish manually calculates points on his website each week) to superflex and IDP dyansty leagues. I have been a writer at Dynasty League Football for about three years, and have contributed at RotoWire as well.

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

MFL10 aficionado Mike Margossian set the bar here. Also, Nathan Miller recently joined the DLF family so it will be fun to see which dynasty writer does better in the redraft format.

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

I focused on QB (ARod, Roethlisberger) and RB (Forte, Hyde, Randle) early to capitalize on the superflex and .25 point-per-carry format, then some consistent receivers and boom-or-bust TE (Ertz, ASJ). With an imminent switch to a TE-premium format, I will have to rethink this approach yet again. It makes the SFB that much more fun when there are so many different approaches that make sense for the draft.

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

I can type over 100 words per minute. That is, unless I’m writing an article and scrutinizing/rewriting every word.

Colin Pratt — Dynasty Sports Empire
Mike Margossian — Fake Pigskin

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

I am sort of a jack-of-all trades @MikeMar05 as I do a lot of MFL10s, dynasty, salary cap, redraft, and auctions. Been playing fantasy football since the mid 90’s and I commish a bunch of leagues.

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

Who in your division do you want to take down the most? Outside of Jaron Foster and Nathan Miller I don’t really know my division-mates too well, so based on who I interact with the most, Jaron by a mile.

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

I went with the “Get Gronk win the league” move to start and paired with Dez for the TE1/WR1 combo. Followed it up with some mid RB’s and QB’s that can hold down the fort (Lamar/Gordon, Eli/Flacco) and sprinkled in vets like Golden and Fitz.

One strategy I did by accident was stacking some WRs (Dez/Cole, Fitz/Floyd) which I’m sure will screw me over.

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

Oh man, I’m kinda boring that way, don’t really have any cool talents. Getting good at building things, so maybe I’ll build some sort of weapon to intimidate people. Just need some addresses.

Kevin Mechtley — Fantasy Fumble Podcast

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

My fantasy football personna is definitely aggressive. I’m always looking for an angle or a way to get an edge on the competition. Find me at @FantasyFBTalk.

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

Anyone that stands in my way.

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

I let the QB studs go early and ended up with the 3-headed monster of Teddy B, Cutler, and Bradford later on. Foster as a late second felt pretty good at the time. Not so much now

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

I’m a freestyle rapper.

Emil Kadlec — Football Diehards
Joe Redemann — numberFire

I try to throw cold water on the truthers and hype train believers. With a little critical thinking, we can reveal the truth of fantasy football quite simply. @JayArr_FF

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

There are so many good choices in my division, but I have to pick Graham Barfield. Graham actually entered this year’s SFB with a numberFire tag on his team, and when he got hired at RotoWorld, changed it. That demands (friendly) retribution.

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

I tried to let value fall to me and didn’t aim to finagle a strategy. I went QB higher than I have in the past, but one upside and one safe QB is a solid aim for me.

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

I can write with both hands. [Zach note: What else can he do with two hands?]

Graham Barfield — RotoWorld

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

I write and talk about fantasy stuff and pretend to know what the hell I am talking about. I also have a Dez Bryant fetish.

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

I’ll be honest, I didn’t have much of one — outside of knowing I wanted to go WR-heavy and lock up high volume RBs fairly early. I picked 1.02 and took Antonio Brown followed up by CJ Anderson/Jeremy Hill and Jordan Matthews in the fourth.

Definitely numberFire’s Joe Redemann.

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

I’m a damn good dodgeball player. RIP Patches O’Houlihan.

Nathan Miller — The Fake Football

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

I’m Batman…mysterious, gritty, candid, and dark at times.

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

Not familiar with most of my division, so maybe Jaron for an in-house DLF battle royale.

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

Best player available early on, and sought to fill holes more as the draft went on. With no penalty for INTs, the gap in QB scoring narrows making it easier to find value in the later rounds.

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

Not sure about a “shock and awe” talent. This division did appeal to me as the 90’s SNL characters are permanently etched into my brain. I typically pepper a 90’s SNL quote into conversation at least once daily.

Shane T. Walker (aka Phixxation) represents, in fantasy football, one of the few elements that time has lost on the human race.

Patience.

I abhor twitter.

[Zach note: But Twitter loves you.]

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

I wanna take down everybody. I wanna say I beat all the experts at their own game.

::slowly “Do you hear the people sing,” from Les Mis. starts playing in the back ground::

“No!” “We will not let them beat us!” “We will NOT let them tear us down”, we scream

::the crowd get noiser::

“We will TAKE DOWN our fantasy foes with a swift swipe of the finger!”

::Chanting now::

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

“We will draft TWO QB’s with our FIRST TWO picks, followed by a TE too early, but maybe he’ll make me look like a genius!”

::crickets::
