Fantasy Football 2011 Projections Review


The left column is the projections I made on 08/03/11 on Suicidefantasyfootball.com. The right column is the actual rankings at the end of the 2011 NFL regular season.

As you can see my divisional champions went 2 for 8.

As for positional fantasy finishes, I was off…big time. I did semi-decent with QBs and RBs, but when it comes to WRs, TEs, Ks, and DEFs, I was way way off, not getting anyone in the top 5 right.

Since it was so early into the pre-season, injuries were the death of me. We had not learned about Peyton’s 3rd neck surgery yet. Who knew Jamaal Charles would be out for the season so quick. For the WRs, I projected which teams would have stud WRs, however projecting the right WR on the team was my Achille’s heel.

Whats your Favorite team? I believe this has to be the most common question asked during any sports related event.  Everyone wants to know where your allegiances lie not just for small talk, but to get a quick glimpse into your soul. Behind every persons affection for a sporting team is a story that binds the two together. Heres Mine.

         I was a semi jock in high school. In my earlier years I was arrogant enough to believe I had the skills to go pro, but unfortunately for me I was more proficient at causing myself drama. Drama or not my love for sports, and in particular the ones I played never passed. The desire to be on the football field or running the basketball court made me latch on to my teams like a tissue on the bottom of a high heel. Unsuspecting of their meaning to me I trudge forward with my team until life forces me away, but I aways find a way back.

        I have only sworn undying loyalty to two teams. One being my high school alma mater, and the other being the Indianapolis Colts. I realize that high school sports mean nothing to most on a national scale so ill spare you the details on the Maynard Evans High School Trojans who went 10-2 this football season. (Lol) No this is not about them. This about My dear colts. Yes the ones that got their first victory of the season yesterday with their third string quarterback starting and a patchwork offensive line. Yep those are my boys.

         I get the question all the time “How does a guy that never once set foot in Indiana love their football team so”?  To be honest its simply complex. I was a fan of Marshall Faulk. I played running back during my football career, so I always identified with them the most. Watching him felt like magic! Every time this man carried the rock I expected great things. When he Left the colts they got this quarterback by the name of Peyton Manning. He was the first quarterback I could say I grew up watching. I mean I didn’t just click on the tv to see his name flash across sports center. No, I  actually followed him from college sports into the pros. It was my admiration for these two players that attracted me to the colts organization.

        Everyone Loves to win but these guys have been doing it for years. Thier style of play, the way they run their front office, to the way they drafted players it all just agreed with me. It helped that Peyton and Company were winning. I guess you can say that was the cherry on top, considering this year Our unit has hit rock bottom. The lock out hurt us more than any other team I believe, but I wont justify our 1-13 record.  After all It is a professional team and under no circumstances do I find this acceptable. Especially since we had most of our pieces. Again that is neither here nor there, so despite the horrid record I believe we will turn this seasons losses into victories for many years to come.

        I love my team, but I am not blinded by them. Whether it be football or water polo I like to call things like I see them. I hope that if your reading this you’ll once again join me as I share my opinions, concerns, and highlights. Feel free to comment and send feed back on anything I might post. All I ask is that if you feel like your comment might be motivated by ignorance Stop and re-evaluate what you want to say. I will not have profane rants on my blog. Thank you for your time and I look forward to your responses.

The Good News: I’m now writing for a new site as an Expert Fantasy Football Analyst. The site is SuicideFantasyFootball.com .

The Bad News: Being as how I’m writing for this site, my insanely humorous and intellectual blogging will be few and far between on this blog.

The Great News: You can still read from your favorite Fantasy Blogger at SuicideFantasyFootball.com! On top of reading, you can also play the all new style of Fantasy Football on the site as well! How is it different you may ask? Well, there is no draft whatsoever. You simply pick any NFL player to fill your generic fantasy roster each week. However, the trick is that you can only use a player ONCE the ENTIRE season. Whomever has the most overall points for the season in their respective league wins. There are Free Leagues, $10 Leagues, $50 Leagues, and $100 Leagues. Whomever wins the $50 and $100 leagues wins…wait for it…an all expense paid trip for two to this season’s Superbowl!!! That’s right, for as little as $50, you and a friend can go to the Superbowl for FREE!!!

Here is a video showing how to play and set your lineup.

On top of this new inventive Fantasy League, I am still playing the generic style on CBSSports.com in which I am still looking for a few more fans to fill it before I open it up to the public. $39 Buy in, $200 for 1st place.

Even though this week is officially Shark Week, I believe last week had more sharks. GM Sharks hunting for the best acquisitions for their team both in the MLB and NFL alike. What else did you think was going to happen when the entire NFL offseason was crammed into just one month? Well, luckily for my readers, you have me. Below is a list of all of the “relevant signings and trades in both the NFL and MLB in case you haven’t been keeping up to par. For all of my fellow Dolphins fans, sadly we still have Chad Henne.

I still have just a few more spots left in my CBS Sports Fantasy Football league. $99 entry. First place receives $600. Open to any friends and/or fans who would like to challenge me. Post comment with interest.

  • SP Ubaldo Jimenez from the Rockies to the Indians
  • OF Michael Bourn from the Astros to the Braves

  • 1B Derek Lee from the Orioles to the Pirates
