This is an amazing time for dynasty fantasy football. We are beginning to get some rookie practice reports; all kinds of fantasy football drafts are underway which gives everyone a chance to put their money where their mouth is in respect to player evaluation and strategy. I joined a start-up league run by my buddy Stan Hyatt. It is a 12 teamer with 40 regular roster spots and five taxi squad spots (rookies only). The lineups are as follows: 1 QB, 2-3 RBs, 2-5 WRs, 1-3 TEs (need eight combined players out of RB/WR/TE spots), 1 K and on the defensive side 3-4 LBs, 3-4 DBs, 2-3 DLs with ten total defensive starters. It is PPR scoring for all positions, tackle heavy IDP scoring, 6 points for every touchdown, .1 points per 1 yard of offense (rushing and receiving), and .05 per yard of passing and/or returns. I was lucky enough to end up with my favorite roster spot, 10th overall in a straight snake format. You can find the league here: http://football24.myfantasyleague.com/2015/options?L=78307&O=17
11.04 TE Eric Ebron, Lions
This ultra-athletic tight end had a slow first year in the league. Ebron was the 13th tight end taken and is worth the pick here with upside alone. I’m a strong believer in taking chances on players that play on good offenses in dynasty startups as he may never come at a cheaper price.
