It’s Bengaldom’s all-knowing and all-seeing fore-teller of things yet to be. Along with the other writers of Stripehype.com, I’ll be bringing you my fantasy expertise…ummm, advice….well, opinion anyway. This will be different from my “Top 10 quarterbacks in the league” article. This time it’s all about numbers. Fantasy football is tricky, risky, and full of pitfalls. It’s easy to get caught up in the quest for glory and get completely
lost. That’s ok. It’s why I’m here to be your guide; follow me, I know the way.
1. Aaron Rodgers-I selected Rodgers last season with the 6th pick in the first round, and couldn’t have been happier. He had tons of yards, tons of TDs, and almost no interceptions negating points. Add in his ability to get 3 or 4 cheap points a game running the ball and sometimes even a 6-point bonus for running it it, which he did three times last season. The good news for me, is my league is a keeper league and Rodgers was an easy choice to keep around. He’s easily a first round pick.
2. Drew Brees-I’ll assume that his contract is resolved and he’s playing, and lucky for fantasy owners, in a high octane, high scoring offense. He broke the all-time record for passing yards in a season last year and led the league in TD passes as well. If the team is motivated by the allegations around them, Brees could put up more monster numbers. A first round pick is worth it.
