Random Ramsdom 5/20/12


What a week its been. Since the draft last month, teams have been integrating their rookies into their new lives as professional football players. New uniforms, trying on helmets, and grabbing their first paychecks! Boo-Yah!

Let's face it, this is the time of year when we all go through football withdrawals. It's time to tell wives and girlfriends you have to attend those NFL Anonymous meetings, that are really Fantasy Football clinics held at local pubs. The "12 Steps" are FF Mock draft rounds. Then there's something about being powerless to resist taking Drew Brees in the first round...

Brandon Funston's Fantasy Football Big Board - The biggest shock to me is seeing the Chargers' Ryan Matthews in the top ten. Is it just me that thinks San Diego lost a couple too many offensive linemen this off season. Could be wrong? Glad to see cam Newton is in the top 10. His incredible rookie year helped me win my 2011 FF league. has a Top 20 FF players list out, and they have Mathews at #8, with Tennessee's Chris Johnson following at #9. Not much of a consensus in FF Mock drafts when it comes to Tom Brady?

Fantasy Knuckleheads has a nice post on WRs that could be solid picks in later rounds. I like their take on the Steelers' Antonio Brown...

SBN's Fake Teams - They have their FF QB ratings out. Sam Bradford at #20?

Draft Sharks has an interesting read - Seems 2011 stats aren't really matching 2012 player predictions in their 7 tips for Fantasy Football. has a bit of Fantasy anarchy going on - The rules in Fantasy Football have them grumbling for a few changes.

Finally, How about a bit of "Ya-Sure-You-Betcha" for Jeff Fisher and Les Snead going long after cornerbacks in the 2012 NFL Draft?
