|Man, football is so great.|
*First things first, I got into a bit of an argument yesterday in the comments over at KSK about fantasy scoring. It seems that most of the people over there play in PPR leagues and where QB's only get 4 points per TD pass. I've been playing fantasy for over 15 years now and I have never done one of these. I figured it was just something different that few people do. But after doing research, Yahoo and ESPN both have their default settings set this way. Personally, this seems stupid. I disagree with both of these. They sound horrible.
PPR first. I'm tired of hearing about leagues that give points out like candy on Halloween. Points per reception? Really? That's what they are supposed to do! Would you really want to play in a league where Wes Welker gets a point for a three yard catch? Fantasy football shouldn't be complicated. I like to focus more toward TD's. You want points? SCORE. Don't even get me started on fractional points. That's dumber than BYU thinking they are Notre Dame. Or dumber than Roger Clemens.
I've been watching football for a long time and I've yet to see a 4 point touchdown. Never. I don't like the idea of lessening the value of QB's. A quarterback is the most important player in real football, why should that change for us dorks? It's fucking stupid. But enough of that.

*Stay the fuck away from Percy Harvin. I'm not going to call him a bitch, but he's kind of a bitch. Migraines probably suck and all, but come on... And feel free to move the Vikings players up your draft boards again.
*A few years ago, one of my buddies told me that he was in a league where they took the ESPN top 100 players and threw them all out. They couldn't be drafted. You had to make a decent team with average players. This seems stupid but kind of fun at the same time. Imagine drafting David Garrard with the first pick and being pumped about it. This got me thinking of a potential reverse fantasy league. Instead of offensive players, you take only defensive players. You get points for tackles, TFL, sacks, picks, passes defensed, whatever. And you can only draft offfensive units. Sounds interesting, doesn't it? I mean, I'm not going to do it but I should probably copyright it. I would take Patrick Willis first.
That's it. I'm done. See you Monday.
