So what makes THIS fantasy show different? Well, first of all, we don't get paid for our expertise. We're JJ & Tiny Tyler...and we're just two guys with radio backgrounds who needed to give our wives an excuse as to why we spend so much time on Fantasy Football. So, now in our 3rd season as a podcast and carried nationally on over a dozen radio stations including iHeartRadio Talk, we carry the madness over to you. We promise you moderately accurate fantasy advice (we're right more than we're wrong!), a mild level of entertainment and amusement, and at the very least a punching bag for all of your head shaking fantasy mistakes. Wanna ask a question? We happen to be EVERYWHERE. Hit us up on Facebook and Twitter using the links above and we'll help you finish better than last place (that's our way of underpromising and over-delivering). Thanks for listening!
Looking at my rankings versus other fantasy experts, I don't think there's too many outliers here, but I'll explain the ones I've seen.
At quarterback, I think Andrew Luck is about to have a monster game against a Jacksonville secondary that just got eaten alive by the Seahawks. Coincidentally, I also have Reggie Wayne and T.Y. Hilton much higher than most.
If Reggie Bush plays and gets a full workload, I'd have him as a Top 10 back, but I don't think that happens. I'd actually be a little afraid to start Bush, but I assume he probably finishes in the Top 20 by default. I also have Joique Bell ranked higher than some sites because, after talking to some guys close to the Lions, I think Bell still gets a large share of work this week. I remain somewhat bullish on David Wilson - I think for the Giants to win he needs to touch the ball 20 times, and as much as he may be in Tom Coughlin's doghouse, I think eventually logic has to win out. I also believe in Brandon Bolden in New England. I was highest of all the big fantasy sites on Shane Vereen in Week 1 and it paid off...I think Bolden is beginning to fill that role.
At wide receiver, I'm down on Andre Johnson, and my reasons are pretty clearly laid out in this week's podcast. Johnson is not incapable of being shutdown by elite cornerbacks. Last year against top corners, he totaled 24 fantasy points in 4 games. Richard Sherman is an elite corner. I'm also higher on Josh Gordon than many - I think he's a legit WR2 regardless of matchup, although this one against Leon Hall is exceptionally tough. I'm also way higher on Aaron Dobson than ESPN or Fox. Watching the Patriots play, I think Dobson is the better receiver. Thompkins just has trouble with route-running and creating separation...Dobson doesn't - he just can't catch the ball. That can be fixed and I think last week was a good start of a turnaround for him.
