It's Almost Time for Football!

It's been too long.  Seriously, I feel like I haven't watched or really thought about Football that much in like YEARS.  Well weeks really.  That's of course save for the occasional daily checking in on a few camps through detailed reports from people who more often than not get paid to write about sports.  Nerds.

But here I am tonight watching preseason football, like a champ, and TOTALLY loving it.  Like it never abandoned me for months at a time.  And who would go out there and score but Mohamed Sanu.  Out of?  You guessed it, Rutgers.  

Anyway, I'm writing this little note to let you know that I'm going to start writing some fantasy football previews over the next two weeks.  I don't want to make a list of a TK's Top 200 or anything like that but I will go through position by position and list who I think will be the most valuable players.  That is guys who will outperform their current draft position for one reason or another.  If I'm right about guys like that and you draft them on your team, you will win many games.  While this isn't much of a secret I feel like I should just say it because maybe there are some beginners out there just DYING to figure out how to make this whole fantasy football thing work.  The trick is getting the most value out of your players.  (polite pause so you can gather your mind grapes)  That is getting guys who score points at a rate that is better than what their draft position would lead you to believe.  

Don't get me wrong, guys like Drew Brees and Aaron Rodgers are valuable players.  However, let's say you wait until the third or fourth round and take Mike Vick and he ends up putting up nearly the same amount of points as those guys over the course of the season.  Well then you just found yourself an undervalued asset in Mike Vick and are well on your way to winning some fantasy football games.  

Next up Wide Receivers you should be interested in drafting.
