Fantasy Football Reporter

By Liz Panucci // @PanucciLiz

Welcome to the first edition of 2017 NFL Fantasy Football Weekly Updates. My goal is to keep you abreast of the weekly winners in each of our 6 leagues. Players who have produced top fantasy numbers will also be highlighted. I’ll be sure to share a tip each week or direct you to a professional fantasy football analyst, so stick around.

Highlights from each league

Originals League: This league has been around for many years. The teams are mostly ladies who have been with us, as in house reporters. There are 12 teams. As Sharona just said – My Team Looks Good On Paper.  The live draft was Sunday, September 3 via NFL.com.

Female Free #1: Always a popular one. This is a league of 10 teams. Golden Tate Bridge and Victorious Secrets are two of the names. The live draft was Sunday, August 27 via Yahoo Fantasy Sports.

Female Free #2: We had to make a second league this year! Again, a league of 10 teams. Many new ladies joined this league. Team TriSARAHtops looks like a true contender. The live draft was Wednesday, August 30 via Yahoo Fantasy Sports.

Female BuyIn: This is a $20 buyin league – winner take all. The champ, Page Denny, is back to defend her title. Only 8 teams in this league but it will be a good fight til the end. The live draft was Sunday, August 27 via Yahoo Fantasy Sports.

Coed Free: Men love to get in on the action with us. Ten teams in this league. Fun names are 50 Shades of Browns and I Ansah to No One. The live draft was Monday, August 28 via Yahoo Fantasy Sports.

Coed BuyIn: Another $20 buyin league. These are great for couples. A league of 10 teams with names such as They Siemian Rollin’. Live draft was Tuesday, August 29 via Yahoo Fantasy Sports.

Top projected players for Week 1 as per Fantasy Pros in each position are: QB – Tom Brady (NE), RB – Le’Veon Bell (PIT), WR – Antonio Brown (PIT), TE – Rob Gronkowski (NE), K – Stephen Gostkowski (NE), DEF – Houston Texans, DP – J.J. Watt (HOU).

Hmmmmm….only 3 teams listed. Time will tell.

Fantasy Tip of the Week

Did you get the last pick in your league? I did. But that can be good news. According to stats, more of last year’s winners came from the last pick than from the first pick.
