Fantasy Football 2017 Season Recap

Fantasy Football Reporter

By Liz Panucci // @PanucciLiz

I won! I won a championship!

My theory going into the 2017 NFL fantasy football season was to play the numbers. I drafted the highest I could when my turn came, focusing on wide receivers and running backs in the early rounds. Five of our six leagues did not have a kicker on the roster.

Each week, my starters were selected by using the players who had the highest projected stats going into the week’s games. When a player was injured and out for the season, I then replaced said player with the top player available in that position on the league’s list.

Fantasy Football Update Week 12

Fantasy Football Reporter

By Liz Panucci // @PanucciLiz

The fantasy football league playoffs are looming ever closer. Currently, I stand at 4th place in three leagues and 7th in the other two. I have some work to do. On a high note, at least one of my five teams has been the top point scorer in it’s league most weeks.

As a reminder to new readers, I am going strictly by the projected points each week. If a player has higher stats than the other, in they go to my week’s lineup. The grades after my original draft were all B or higher.

Here are the top point getters for the season, so far, in each position courtesy of fantasypros.com:  At quarterback – Russell Wilson, running back – Todd Gurley, wide receiver – Antonio Brown, tight end – Rob Gronkowski, kicker – Greg Zuerlein, team defense – Jacksonville Jaguars and defensive player – Bobby Wagner.

Alvin Kamara had an outstanding week once again.

Heading in to Week 13 of the NFL, these are the division leaders. Definitely some surprises if you think back to Labor Day weekend and you were doing a division pick ’em for the upcoming 2017 season.

Fantasy Football Update Week 11

Not much time left to get your fantasy team in playoff contention. The next couple of weeks are crucial.

With NFL players going down each week, the list of quality fantasy point getters is dwindling. Many have picked up WR Adam Thielen of the Minnesota Vikings who proves to be worthy.

Fantasy Football Update Week 9

Fantasy Football Reporter

By Liz Panucci // @PanucciLiz

Moving along with my fantasy football theory of playing the projected stats…

Roster drops/adds are limited to injured players out for the season and bye weeks. Tight ends, team defense and defensive players I only keep one so when a bye week happens they are dropped and those players/teams available with the highest points for the season are added.

I have five fantasy teams, one NFL and four Yahoo. Each of those rosters is quite different. This week I had top points in four of those five leagues (see below), thanks to the New York Jets defense, wide receiver Doug Baldwin and running back Todd Gurley II.  If only I could win more weeks. Anyone else have that problem?

Fantasy Football Update Week 8

Fantasy Football Reporter

By Liz Panucci // @PanucciLiz

Anybody like theories? I’m taking a unique journey with my fantasy football teams this season – going with the basic stats. My drafting reports mostly were in the higher than average category. Here’s my strategy:

Each week my starters are the players or defense with the highest projected points from my team. If it’s a bye week, I drop the extra position player on my team with the least points for the season. The top player for that position available is added to my team. Same goes for players who are out for the season due to injury. I have 5 teams – 1 NFL, 4 Yahoo.

I’ll be sharing my findings as we progress through the season. Should be interesting.

Seattle Seahawks Bring Out the Best in Week 8

By Shannon Sanchez // @ShannonSanchez3

Houston Texans 38 – Seattle Seahawks 41

This game was exciting, astonishing, breathtaking, dangerous, dramatic, intriguing, moving, stimulating, thrilling, electrifying, eye-popping, and mind-blowing.  Or just fun.  Maybe not every moment was fun, but on a whole, this game was fun.  

I say that now because the Seahawks came out on top of the Texans 41 to 38.  I can also say that because my heart rate has gone back to normal and I found another stash of rubber bands for the next game.  

Both quarterbacks Russell Wilson and Deshaun Watson were the talk of the game.  From the opening drive where Watson threw a 59-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Will Fuller V, achieving something that has not been done against Seahawks defense this year.  To the last scoring drive of the game where Wilson came up with another signature save.

Fantasy Football Update Week 7

Chances are you do not have the same fantasy football team you started out with in the summer. Between injuries, trades and just poor stats your strategy to win a week, and optimally the league, may have become mind boggling.

Week 7 in the NFL showed lower fantasy numbers than previous. But, there is always the chance to get that coveted perfect week. If you did happen to submit that perfect fantasy lineup, you would now be one million dollars richer (courtesy of NFL) and have started the following:

She Loves Football

By Liz Panucci // @PanucciLiz

 

My love of the NFL game started when I was a teenager, playing a board game called Strat-O-Matic Football with one of my brothers. Basically, it is the old school version of a Madden NFL video game. We spent many fun hours coaching our teams. The game came down to strategy, both offense and defense, and a simple roll of the dice.

I have had a soft spot for the Miami Dolphins since the ‘80s. It was during their dominant years with quarterback Dan Marino that I really became hooked. I attended my first live NFL game November 18, 2010 at SunLife Stadium in Miami. What a milestone.

Recently, Our Turf Football created a survey to understand how, when, and where NFL fans get/want their news related to their teams or the league.

With so much going on in the NFL both during the season and offseason, we wanted to know how fast you wanted access to breaking news. Not surprisingly, participants noted that they are interested in getting breaking news as soon as it happened.
