Football season is almost here, and I'm still putting together my fantasy draft lineup to win my Fantasy Football League. So far, I've picked a great quarterback and and an awesome running back. The other positions are not so set in stone. Can you offer any advice for someone I might want to draft on my team?
While Titans QB Marcus Mariota will put up some great numbers, if he remains healthy, I'm more of a classical fan of football, and care more about the wins, then statistics.
Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr, is a game changer, and the team can certainly obtain the wins if he stays healthy. While the stats might not be there to pick Carr as my QB, I love this quarterback.
New England Patriots QB Tom Brady is probably the number 1 requested quarterback during Fantasy Football drafts. While he makes a great draft pick, can he remain healthy at his age? Football is a young mans game.
Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger is my choice for various reasons. The first reason is that I love Pittsburgh. Beyond my love for a great city, I really think this might be the last productive year out of big ben, and that if he doesn't produce the wins, he will retire. He has some great targets that can go deep, and some great running backs who also can catch and run for long yardage.
Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott is electrifying and while he might not pad his stats like Mariota and others, he gets the win more often then them. I like this QB and the Cowboys.
While I've listed some great quarterbacks, if any one of them goes down with an injury, it might not be a season ending one for the player. It would probably end all chances for the team to make it to the postseason. Unless the record was already good enough when the injury happened.
Staying in when game is already decided
If the QB is overplayed when the game is out of range, the blame must go to the coach. There's nothing that bothers a true fan more than if the quarterback or any important player is injured in the proverbial garbage time. It seems like there is no coming back from this kind of pointless injury. (RGIII) If a running back or any back is trying to beat records, gain yardage, or pad stats by staying in a game that has already been decided. Then its the foolish coaches that have no business of being in charge. Can we get the coach fired this season?
