Cincinnati Main Events are in the Book
The KFFSC kicked off the live Main Event Draft Season on August 25th. In a draft highlighted by the arrival of industry aces like Jason Conn, the Cox team and more.

The third year for the growing event Commissioner Ferrell Elliot plans to expand the venue as more participants learn about the event. The South Carolina kids drove out to draft live and scored a great draft. Jarrett and Michael arrived in time to watch the first draft which allowed them to adjust strategy for the draft they were in at 4:00 pm.

Great plan, they discussed with prior to the draft where they wanted to picking from and the players they hyped to get. Beckham, Cobb and K Allen went 1,2,3 to them In round 4 they went after xxx xxxxxx, RB, xxxxx. A sleeper for them, a riser on most boards. Taking xxxxx xxxxx! in round 5 is a steal to me . A player who running behind that OL could be a top 5 RB this year. IN the 5th !!!

IF you have not joined a KFFSC draft the draft starts with a bang. As they auction off draft position. The dollars spent to buy your draft position count against your waiver wire budget. In Cincy we saw the coveted 11,12 spot go for big dollars again. . . . . $330 for the 12 spot. In a third round reversal format the player at the 12 spot is essentially getting 3 of the top 25 players.

This coming weekend, August 28-30, the KFFSC will kickoff the regalia at the Horseshoe in Louisville. Hundreds of participants and guest will descend on Casino, participants and guest. Belky and Gerzak from the FFPC’s High Stakes Fantasy Football Hour will be their broadcasting live on Friday night right on location.

Josh Huff WR is the fastest ascending player on the board, you will have to massively adjust your draft plan to get him on your team . Tune into the KFFSC AllPurposeRoto Fantasy Hour on Tuesday night at 8:00 pm for all the details and reveals.

The Jordy Nelson injury shows just how fickle the game can be . Devonta Adams went in the 8th, 9th and 9th. WE will see this weekend how far up boards he will move. Devin Funchess, in response to the Benjamin injury went in the 6,7, and 9th.

What is our response to the Nelson injury, its drafting Lacey if he falls to us in round 1. His role in the offense will grow. Cobb, now will get the lock down corner every game and may have games of great disappointment. I like the Olson move up as a reaction to the Benjamin injury as I target xxxx in Round 6 or 5.

A note here, insider info, the South Carolina boys steered me hard away from Cobb and are on the Sankey bandwagon. What a great story that could be. We will be drafting all day Saturday and Sunday, call or join us. If you are in driving distance, come check it out and scout it for next year. Nice Casino, exercise room , walking path for the wife / girlfriend and major shopping outlets a short drive away.

The anticipation of the first Main Event Draft was electric Monday night. The 9pm Draft started with a bang.
Le’Veon Bell, Jamaal Charles, Eddie Lacy . . . take that RB Zero Strategist.

The remainder of Round One saw, A Brown, J Jones, Dez, D Thomas and ODB at WR – with Adrian Peterson and Gronk mixed in. At the 11,12 spot Lynch and Hill went.

Coming off the turn CJ Anderson, Matt Forte made up the 13th and 14th overall.

Frank Gore went at the 24 spot, that was a surprise. 3rd Round reversal kicked in and the 12 spot team added Jordan Matthews to Jeremy Hill and CJ Anderson. The 11 spot team took Alshon Jeffery to pair up with Marshawn Lynch and Matt Forte.

Round 3, Edelman fell to the 35 spot , nice value. Ingram went 36, no doubt the Spillar injury news moved him up a bit.

Where did red hot Ameer Abdullah go? It wasn’t round 5. Joseph Randle is a 4th round pick . . . . darn.

Foster Fell, . . . how far. Charles Johnson and Eddie Royal are on the move up boards. Tune in, or download the August 18 podcast to get the low down on all the picks.

Cardinal WR, John Brown is fast looking like the # 1 guy in Arizona. He went 87th in the 8th round!

Jordan Reed, TE, Washington. Gave up and banished fried food, bread and added a whole new stretching workout regime. While it did not work . . . yet, the TE is out with an injured hammy already. Jordan is all the Redskins have at TE now that Paul and Paulson are out for the year. Reed is a sure thing as a top 15 TE this year, if he stays on the field.

CJ Anderson tweeked his ankle early in Pre Season Game One. Think about how close Monetee Ball is to being a legit top 15 RB. Ball has more game than folks recall . . watch CJ closely. New coaching staff, high profile position where injuries pile up . . . Ball is the type of player that gives fuel to the less than zero RB strategy.

Jay Gruden’s Washington Offense last year was the leagues 7th best on 3rd down. Can you name the 3 Quarterbacks he used? . . . Yeah . . . thought so , me to. Bet on Pierre Garcon, DeSean Jackson and Alfred Morris to perform well above the ADP they go off at.

A lot is being made about David Carr and Bill Musgrave in Oakland. Let’s recall, Musgrave’s Viking offenses for 3 years were top 8 in running (A. Peterson) and bottom 10 in passing. In Jacksonville for 2 years it was also terrible. Just a word of caution. . . like Amari for PPR and yardage . . the TD’s might be infrequent

Speaking of Oakland Offensive Coordinators, Greg Olson left Oakland to join Jacksonville. Not what you wanted to see if you were looking for upside for young wide receivers Allen Robinson or Allen Hurns. Can’t the Jags find someone to help Bortles.

One of the most “dissed” running backs in fantasy is Giovani Bernard. The Bengals are a ground and pound team now and Geo represents good value. He had 49 catches last year and a combined 7 TD’s Look for him to be more involved in 2015. He is why I pass on Jeremy Hill in early rounds, Geo is an electric player. Dalton is not, hence he is needed on the field for the Bengals.

John Brown, WR, Arizona is a legit threat to lead the Cardinals in receptions. As a rookie last year with a back alley group of QB’s, Brown posted 48 catches for near 700 yards. There in nobody pushing hard at the 4 spot. There is no pass catching TE . . . Brown looks solid. Ahh Brown looks real Sweet.

The Cowboys have the most dominating OL I have seen in over a decade. Joseph Randle could lead the league in rushing . . . seriously. The Boys OL can dominate opponents.

Eli Manning heads into 2015 with Ben McAdoo as the OC for his second year. Manning has worked with Baseball trainers in the off season to keep his arm strong at the end of the season. Manning has the most talented WR crew of his career, add a better OL (draft help) and Shane Vereen as a pass catching RB. Eli may be the best of the QB 3 Tier. Tier I – A. Luck, A. Rogers / Tier II – M. Ryan, T Brady, R Wilson / Tier III – Eli Manning, Peyton Manning, Big Ben, P Rivers, D Brees, C Newton, M Stafford / This is why you wait on QB – still a solid group of starters here

Teddy’s Vikings offense scored 8 TD’s in weeks 1-8. They scored 16 in weeks 9-16. Yes that was the best improvement in the league last year. Last years UFA Charles Johnson at WR had over 400 yards in the last 6 weeks, with no TD’s he is flying under the radar. Kyle Rudolph is a game changer for you as a TE2 if he can stay on the field.

The bandwagon following the Colt’s offense is growing despite a horrific defense and marginal at best Franchise Management. Suggest a pause and a peek at the Packers. A Rogers, J Nelson, R Cobb, D Adams, E Lacy – Luck, Hilton, A Johnson, Gore, Fleener . . . . . the Pack will out perform this group.

Julius Thomas, TE, Jags, hand fracture, already a ton of concerns in regard to the offense . . . now . . injured Ertz looks better. Now, flash back to about 20 High Stakes guest on the Fantasy Tactics show this summer. The common theme . . . . . value. J Thomas may fall into a super attractive round 9 range. He was going round 7 prior to the injury.

Kevin White WR, Chicago, out for the year . . . or half the season. M. Bennett at TE just moved up boards, M Wilson . .. hello. The Bears are actually moving from a near train wreck I want no part of to a collapse that presents great value. The team will be behind . . . . a lot . . . . Forte and Bennett are the beneficiaries of the Jeffery and White injuries and Cutler eventual implosion.

CJ Spillar RB, NO out for 3 weeks min — knee clean up surgery . . . Khiry Robinson, . . get him, no matter how quickly and well Spillar looks.

Trestman’s offense nearly led the league in Touchdown success rate in the red zone the last two years. . . . and that was with Cutler. Expect Flaco to benefit along with Forsett.

Ninerville . . . . exit Harbaugh, then Patrick Willis, Mike Iupati (pro bowl guard), Frank Gore, Chris Borland, Michael Crabtree, Dan Skuta, Justin Smith . . . that team is a shell of what it once was. The take away. Kapernick spent two months working with Kurt Warner in the off season. Just not sure that is a good thing, just when the Niners needed him to run more . . for his life.

Doug Martin has many of us back in line, drafting him as a upside RB3. Just when we all get comfortable with that, everyone is forgetting about Charles Simms. Simms missed 8 games last year, derailing his rookie campaign. Ankle injuries are tough to come back from, despite that the rookie still grabbed 19 catches. God size, 6’0″, 211, West Virginian heading into his second year . . . . if he clicks with Winston.

Tevin Coleman is more hype that substance at this point. Matt Ryan is the Atlanta franchise. If the rookie even sniffs of not knowing his playbook he wil be a slow starter. Watch his involvement in pre season. Devonta Freeman has moved down draft boards past Freeman and represents great value. Freeman pulled in 30 catches in his rookie effort last year.

If your news feed or fantasy source is calling Brandin Cooks a break out candidate you should find a new source . . . . Cooks is way past that status.

3rd Round Reversal – What Ya Going To Do?

In the KFFSC and other fast growing National Contest, the drafts in each league are started with a bidding process to determine your draft position. Usually, your waiver wire budget is the pool of the money used to bid on the draft position. Should you spend $300 of your $1000 waiver wire budget to acquire the 10th slot, you will only have $700 for the rest of the year in waiver wire bidding. In 2015, you will find me spending a fair chunk of my free agent money on securing the 10th, 11th or 12th slot. This has been a popular position in the past with new owners and with less experienced participants. However, 2015 represents a shift, I predict an increased, intense efforts along with spending to acquire those picks in 2015.

As a player in a 3rd round reversal contest the coveted position is usually the 10,11,12 spot. A careful ranking of the top 27 will indicate to you the 3 pack of talent you can build your franchise around. Let’s look at the top 50 which will show you your options for your first 5 players if you pick out of the 11 spot

If you pick 11, your picks will be – 11 / 14 / 26 / 47 / 50 overall. This may not look like a significant advantage at first glance. However, the players in Tier One – 14 of them, are significantly better than the next group of 12. So getting two players from this group is a great start and better than having the 6th best player and the 18th best player.

Draft Spots Selected – 1-14 Blue Chip – Near Can’t Miss Value – – Your Picks 11 and 14 – These 14 are a clear step above the next group of 12 (where you will pick again ) You get 2 of the top 14

Draft Spots Selected – 15-26 In the Money – Players who should be near locks to perform as every week starters to anchor your team – Your Pick 26. This group of 11 are close in value to each other, getting the 16th player, is not a big leap over getting the 26th. AJ Green vs DeAndre Hopkins.

Draft Spots Selected – 27-47 Expected Starters – This group of 20 players do not have a lot of value and potential separating them, a player at 29 for example is not a huge upgrade over the player at 45. Brandin Cooks vs Jordan Matthews. However, this group of 20 are a step below the 15-26 group.

Draft Spots Selected – 48-50 Last of the elite – This group is the cutoff before positional needs and a bevy of potential players mix into together. I want 5 of those top 50.

Tier One 1-14
A Peterson, A Brown, O Beckham, L Bell, J Charles, E Lacy, D Bryant, M Lynch, J Jones, J Nelson, D Thomas, C Johnson, M Forte, Rob Gronkowski . . ok you get two of these to start your franchise. For me, I’m great with any 2 of these , but I’d be delighted to see someone go Lynch and Lacy so I can grab WR.

Tier Two 15-26
A Luck, CJ Anderson, D Murray, AJ Green, R Cobb, A Rogers, TY Hilton, L McCoy, J Hill, E Sanders, B Cooks, A Jeffery, – 26 Players ranked. You need to rank the next 12 to determine who options for your 3rd player . I am not advocating taking Luck or Rogers, but it is almost a certainty they will go. One of the above players will be your third. In this group I am hoping that other GM’s select ROgers, Luck, Hill, and CJ, leaving me one of the others.

Tier Three 27-47
J Graham, J Forsett, D Hopkins, F Gore, K Benjamin, M Ingram, L Miller, A Johnson, J Landry, J Matthews G Tate, K Allen, J Edelman, C Hyde, A Morris, J Randle, J Stewart, T Kelce, J Randle, L Murray – 47 Players

The strategy to place your team in the 10,11,12 slot is keyed upon the distinct advantage you see in owning 3 of the top 27 players. Once you are rostered up with your first 3 picks, a look at the next 19 players represents the pool of players that will be drafted en route to your Round 4 pick. Add 3 more and from that pool of 50 you have your first 5 players.

Example :
Tier One (First 14) you get two players – – at the 11 slot you get Julio Jones and Jordy Nelson.
Tier Two (Next 15-26) you get – – Emmanuel Sanders
Tier Three (Next group from the 27-47 pool) – – at the 26 spot you get Alfred Morris
Tier Four (Next Group from t he 48-50 pool) – at the 50 spot you get Joseph Randle.

Long time Fan and Fantasy High Stakes Participant Jim and I have just entered the 12th round in a FFPC Satellite Draft.  Classic format, Not Best Ball, Not Expert format.  1.5 PPR TE.

A look at what has been going on here provides us all a little better flavor on ADP expectations than those engines that gobble up data from nonsensical mock drafts.

Jim and I were picking in the 8 spot, one we considered choice. (more…)

Fellow fantasy afficianadoes you’ll have to forgive me, but for the purposes of this article I am going to defer to the oddsmakers in Las Vegas who have been stealing our money for decades. We will be operating under the assumption that they know “things” that we do not because they most likely do. Granted some of these players odds are impacted by being popular or “public” entities, but let’s not overcomplicate things.

These shadowy figures released their odds on who will lead the NFL in passing, rushing and receiving yards at this early point. Let’s take a look at what the professionals think and what our community is currently thinking (thanks to Sports Insights {listed first} & Fantasy Football Calculator {listed second} for the data).

Jim Cole, who is joining us out at the KFFSC in August dropped us an email the other day with his top 60.  Very solid.  In the midst of drafting an FFPC Satellite League with him as I type this up.    Below you will find Jim’s top 60, along with my remarks.  It is a great group, and each rank can be defended.  I’m shying away from Calvin and CJ Anderson this year.  I also am avoiding getting sucked into the Andre Johnson, TY Hilton , Frank Gore love fest.  ADP’s are to high for these guys on an offense that has an array of targets.  I like them all, but not at current asking price.    Last, I work away from rookie Running Backs, Gordon, Gurley, Abdullah, Johnson, not on my rankings that will result in them being available to me to draft.

Rank Player Name Position Editor Remark
1 Adrian Peterson RB a ok – like him in top 3 easy
2 Antonio Brown WR see above – best bet for consistent production
3 LeVeon Bell RB ok with the suspension, taek advantage
4 Dez Bryant WR I don’t mind missing him, he and Jones worry me
5 Julio Jones WR Concerns – primed for another early season injury?
6 Demaryius Thomas WR take Dez and Julio, I’m pumped with DT
7 Jamaal Charles RB I would have Jamal at 3, Reid is a great offensive coach
8 Odell Beckham WR Will lose some targets – Veren and Cruz
9 Matt Forte RB yes he is a better pick than Murray, no Marshall
10 Calvin Johnson WR not on any of 18 teams (7 pay) to date – ready to break
11 Gronk TE FFPC move him up – top 3 is fine – standard here is solid
12 Marshawn Lynch RB imagine the turn – Lynch and Lacy – yikes!
13 Eddie Lacy RB I’d actually swap with Megatron
14 Jordy Nelson WR The hip a little concerning, otherwise in top 12?
15 CJ Anderson RB Very concerned about Broncos rushing – ? Ball?
16 Arian Foster RB Love his ADP value right now
17 AJ Green WR Huge potential to move into top 5 WR – Dalton?
18 DeMarco Murray RB Is any other top 20 guy loved and hated more?
19 Alshon Jeffery WR Cutler is a REAL handicap
20 Justin Forsett RB perfect spot and love getting him
21 Randall Cobb WR Best excuse for taking a RB in Round One
22 Frank Gore RB Like hin this year but high here
23 Jeremy Hill RB Lot of Geo news slipping out, could be losing touches
24 Jimmy Graham TE FFPC move up 5 picks – Wilson better than advertised
25 TY Hilton WR Lot of weapons – I have Hilton later
26 Lamar Miller RB OK here, but threatened by rookie Ajayi
27 CJ Spiller RB Fantastic here , Im ok at 25, 75 catches and 400 yds rushing
28 Andre Ellington RB wil be on a run count and not a good pass blocker
29 Melvin Gordon RB never feel rookie love, I pas, take any of the next 7
30 LeSean McCoy RB Wil be solid but not spectacular
31 Mike Evans WR Rookie QB, average OL, new position, hmm
32 Andre Johnson WR decent spot – prefer end of round 3
33 Keenan Allen WR Love him and value this year as he now sits
34 Julian Edelman WR not a believer any more, Pats to sign WR??
35 Emmanuel Sanders WR Oh yeah – end of 3 – easy mark for me.
36 Brandin Cooks WR Will be the #1, and get the best cover corner, move down
37 DeAndre Hopkins WR He and Foster are the offense. , no QB, pass
38 Jordan Mathews WR I’m in on the Eagle bandwagon – all in here
39 TJ Yeldon RB Another rookie and I usually pass – fair here but not for me
40 Ameer Abdullah RB aggh this one very tempting at his ADP, prefer him
41 Joseph Randle RB If his ADP holds, he is gold,McFadden NO threat
42 Alfred Morris RB Bill C over from Dallas to run OL and run, NICE +++
43 Allen Robinson WR Not enough TD’s – I’d move down
44 Martavis Bryant WR Decent value – nice here, an injury away from top20
45 Mark Ingram RB TD Machine this year in run heavy Saint offense?
46 Jonathan Stewart RB Here we go again, decent value and ok here , down 6
47 Jarvis Landry WR Like th chances he has for a special year – ok up 5
48 Amari Cooper WR Rookie exception, 5th round – all in!
49 Giovani Bernard RB Could make a lot of noise, but not for me at this ADP
50 Travis Kelce TE FFPC, he is up 4-5 picks, Reid fan, big year looming
51 Vincent Jackson WR Moved out of position, rookie QB, better Rb, not good
52 Brandon Marshall WR If he is on my top 60 I should move him down
53 Rashad Jennings RB OK here but I’ll wait and take Vereen much later
54 Roddy White WR Nice pick and placement here – good value
55 Nelson Agholor WR Rookie everyone loving, good , I’ll take Tate
56 Brandon LaFell WR Upside with Brady, wilt be a vengeful October
57 Duke Johnson RB Not in the top 60
58 Golden Tate WR Do people realize how close he is to posting a top 10 year
59 Larry Fitz WR Classy, steady, perhaps Floyd over him
60 D Jackson WR Yes – RGIII hedge, if 75% D Jax great pick in 6th

We wrapped up our first KFFSC Progressive draft on the 12th and what a shocker.    Dueling up against some former champions and some newcomers the atmosphere was pretty charged  . . . . ready for some football.  Locked away several FFPC satellites and my share of MFL 10’s and 50’s . . . .it was time to get off the porch.

Things were looking pretty decent right up to 5 minutes before draft time . . . . in came a tornado in Kentucky and took out all the power in my area.  Now, we have had many a expert this off season talk about being prepared . . . . . no one ever said that included be ready to draft with a 2.5″x1.5″ phone screen with pen and paper.

As the author of the “Less Than Zero RB Strategy”, I was ready to kick it in gear irregardless.  Draft slots came up and drew the 2 hole . . . . not a spot to follow this strategy.   So, following some of the best advice we have heard over the last 8 weeks with Ferrell , and the KFFSC stars, I  flexed my plan right off the bat.   Considering the lack of power, no internet screen other than a throw back phone in today’s age of monster phone screens, I went throwback.   RB!

Adrian Peterson, Justin Forsett, Alfred Morris, Lamar Miller went in rounds 1,2,3,4 to me.  In the 5th, Travis Kelce was just to much to watch slide by, so he became my TE1 .  So there  I was, 5 rounds in and no wide receivers.  Sounds like a potential for disaster . . .

Over the next 6 picks, rounds 6-11 I added Larry Fitzgerald, Charles Johnson, Devonta Adams, Michael Floyd and Kenny Stills.   Yes – Fitzy is a #1 again . . . . at least on my team.

Quarterbacks Eli Manning and Teddy Bridgewater were plucked in 12,13.    Backup TE – Jared Cook and Heath Miller.    DST – Eagles – taken early – round 14 – I don’t mind – they will start 10 times for me – I’ll ride them .  K – Cody Parker – same – then flyers on Kenny Britt and Aaron Dobson.  A second insurance DST – Vikings – – love what the Zimmer man might pull off with this squad this year,.

Drop me a line and I’ll send you the pdf of the full board with everyone’s pick

Expect the new web page launch around Aug 10 – it will have all the boards from our drafts posted.

A shout out to Jessie Bumstead – picking before be every other round – – he really stung me – – Taking Jimmy Graham in Round 3 when I had him tee’d up.   Victor Cruz in Round 7 . . see you at the Horseshoe Jesse!

Danny Woodhead and Donald Brown are the two RB’s that offer upside to qualify as a RB4, one of them will emerge as part of the weekly offensive package.   As a late, or last round flyer they will have a shot at sticking on your roster.  Stevie Johnson is insane value for a potential WR2 on a passing offense.   He has not played with a QB the likes of Phillip Rivers in . . . . forever. Floyd and Jones are mere distractions. . . . . . pass.

At Tight End, Antonio Gates has been buried by the drafting community the last two years only to respond and post TE 1 numbers en route to remaining a top fantasy option.    Yet again we being coached to look behind him to LaDarius Green, of whom most experts believe can be a very high end TE2. The suspension, 4 weeks, is driving Gates down draft boards.    If you are drafting and have missed or declined on Graham, Gronk, Olson, Kelce, then a combo of Gates / Green is an affordable get.   They need to be coupled with a 3rd TE, such as; H Miller, Z Ebron or C Clay.

The deep bench take away:  Woodhead & Brown are potential 20th round flyers, either may be the pass catching option to pair with rookie Gordan.   Stevie Johnson is a fantastic value now, but his ADP is climbing.  Coupled opposite Keenan Allen he is looking positive for 90 targets.    Gates suspension make him an easy handcuff to Green, warning !!  This is the pattern popping in drafts right now.  Green may only get 50% of the targets that Gates was going to gate, Johnson is the winner here.
