It doesn’t cover the entire state? Oh, ok. So, just Brett Favre’s farm. Gotcha. Clicky Click Here Fo Mo!

Releasing Fantasy Rankings…Like a Boss

Fantasy Football Geeks (including myself here) rejoice and sing Hallelujah fantasy season has arrived! Matthew Berry aka “The Talented Mr. Roto” recently released and updated Top 200 including this years rookies. A few highlights jump out at me. Micheal Turner leads the top 200 at #1. Great year last year but Turner just doesn’t strike me as a #1 Pick. Matt Forte at #3? You have to be kidding me. The first rookie on the board is Chris “Beanie” Wells at #67. After “Beanie” there are several more rookies in his top 200. I dont agree with having rookies over a lot of the more veteran guys. A lot of the rookies he has are at receiver. Typically the only position rookies succeed in their first year in the NFL at is Running Back and that is scarce. Finally, League sources report Kevin Boss sending a text message to Shockey, after landing at #162 on the list with Shockey no where to be found, letting him know that he will be scoring TD’s like a Boss and catching passes like a Boss.
