Last weekend we got a taste of the NFL preseason and today we get the second course. Are you ready for some football?
Of course, there is plenty for us fantasy-obsessed to pay attention to so we can get the most out of our fantasy drafts in a few weeks. The average fantasy owner will form his opinions based on what other fantasy experts say but the true fantasy nut will form his own opinions from watching the games himself. After all, your own gut feeling is your best tool when playing fantasy sports!
Also, it's important to watch the players you intend to draft. You wouldn't buy a car before you test drove it right? Why draft a player without seeing him play a bit in the preseason?
Anyways, let's dive in!
Armed with his new tattoo "Gifted", Ray Rice is ready to give to your fantasy team second round value for an eigth round pick.
Superbowl Rematch: Don't expect a lot of starters to play in this game, but that's ok! We already know Kurt Warner, Larry Fitzgerald, Ben Roethlisberger and Santonio Holmes are all great players. What we want to see is how Rashard Mendenhall comes back from injury last year. Remember, last year he was supposed to be the next big thing in Pittsburgh. Mendenhall might be one of the biggest "under-the-radar" players out there this year. Check him out!
Will Oakland provide any fantasy relevance? The only good things coming out of Oakland lately concerning fantasy are running backs. Even then, Oakland has a surplus of running backs this year. Check out who performs the best out of Darren McFadden, Justin Fargas and Michael Bush. One of these guys will be important to own this year.
