I’ve seen firsthand what fantasy football can do to competitive spirits that have been tucked away deep into the shadows in favor of a more professional mentality during the workweek.
People quickly change into wheeling and dealing general managers in a heartbeat, looking to crush colleagues and friends en route to a championship.
Over the past few weeks Redskins Blog has highlighted several different “fantasy gurus” thoughts on Robert Griffin III, Alfred Morris and Pierre Garcon among others in hopes of swaying you to make the right decision of drafting the trio onto your team.
Sports Illustrated, while in everyone’s corner for advice, has this dandy chart highlighting how the Redskins’ 2013 opponents did against offenses.
Morris’ road to repeating a record breaking 2012 appears, on blog, to be the hardest for any one Redskin while Griffin III the “easiest” with 10 games against the bottom rung of defensive performance against quarterbacks.
Another interesting nugget I found on the SI article was the running back depth chart. We all know that No. 46 is penciled in to be the starter come Week 1, but the situation behind him is one of the top storylines to watch.
Sports Illustrated evidently doesn’t agree with that decision, though, as they have Evan Royster as the No. 2 back.
A conundrum Redskins fans have faced in recent seasons is whether or not to pick the defense. The unit wasn’t one of the first off the board and went unpicked in a majority of leagues.
Still, I think this defense has the makings of being the best “deep sleeper” this year. You heard it here first.
