Nashville, TN (PRWEB) September 5, 2007
Fantasy football season is finally here. It's been a long and grueling eight months, but armed with new teams and new leagues, managers of fantasy football teams throughout the country can look to Thursday's Saints versus Colts game with great anticipation. Not only will the game feature two of the game's elite fantasy foobtall quarterbacks, it will also mark the time when fantasy sports enthusiasts can breathe a big sigh of relief, at least for a moment. Fantasy football is here.
The anticipation level felt on fantasy football forums such as FantasyFanatics.com is high. Over 10 million Americans play, many with the people they work with or with friends, making this unique game a truly social affair. The fantasy football forum at FantasyFanatics.com has been ablaze with owners navigating week one roster decisions as well as a flurry of trade offers. Here's a look at some of the topics permeating the fantasy football forum:
- Maurice Jones-Drew's Fantasy Value: Jones-Drew ranked seventh in a standard Yahoo fantasy football scoring league last year. He found the endzone 13 times and had 436 receiving yards. He was usually drafted around pick 22 behind backs like Ronnie Brown and Travis Henry. However, he's part of a running back by committee in Jacksonville and many question the impact a healthy Fred Taylor could have on his fantasy value.
- Joseph Addai versus Laurence Maroney: This is a hot button issue on the fantasy football forum. Addai has been taken fifth to sixth in most fantasy football leagues, whereas Maroney has been drafted around 10th or 11th. Both are on high-powered offenses and will be the featured back on their teams. Both are coveted second year tailbacks, so why the drafting discrepancy? Many believe it's due to Addai's superior receiving numbers. The critics will argue that this was due to Addai playing more last season. The battle rages on in the fantasy football forum.
- The 2007 Fantasy Football Sleepers: With fantasy football drafts completed, the need to comb the waiver wire becomes paramount for managers. Many members of FantasyFanatics.com have weighed in with their sleepers for the coming season. Names like the Chargers' Vincent Jackson, the Seahawks' D.J. Hackett, the Patriots' Ben Watson, the Eagles' Kevin Curtis, and the Saints' Terrance Copper are just a few being tossed out.
With the NFL regular season underway, the need for managers to interact with each other and seek advice in an open forum is at an all-time high. That's why thousands have flocked to FantasyFanatics.com, the premiere fantasy football forum.
