Fantasy Football Sleepers – Quarterback Rankings Fantasy Football 2009...

Whatever rankings fantasy owners use, whatever scoring system is employed, quarterbacks are incredibly important if you are to make a run at your league championship. However, only 1 or 2 going into the draft should be considered as a first or second round pick. The drop-off in talent level and production at RB and then WR is too drastic to miss the top players. So, go ahead and resign yourself to the fact that you are not getting Peyton Manning or Drew Brees, because you are going after RBs, maybe even WRs with your first 2 or 3 picks. So, that means you will be choosing among 29 or 30 QBs after round 2. In a standard 12 owner league that means you have a great chance to pick a top 12 fantasy scorer. But how that owner ranks fantasy football QBs is important if he wants to nab a late-round sleeper. I picked up Philip Rivers late last year, and he had a career year.To draft fantasy football QB value follow my advice about these sleeper signal callers. Sleeper #1 Trent Edwards will be available in the 9th through 12th rounds of your draft. Buffalo has the 7th easiest NFL schedule for QBs. We all know that Terrell Owens will be starting with Lee Evans, and that alone means less pass rushers, and more options for Edwards, who is entering his third year with Buffalo. He always throws...

Football News For Scouts From Spurs Academy...

Youth Academy Football Scouting. Goalless at half-time, the lads remained patient and finally broke the deadlock on the hour when emergency striker Nathan Byrne (pictured) converted from Paul McBride’s cross. Jessie Waller-Lassen clinched the 2-0 victory when he was picked out by youth footballer Tom Carroll and finished with 10 minutes remaining. “It was an interesting game and a good test for the lads,” reported coach Alex Inglethorpe. “Ipswich were very difficult to break down and that left us with two problems. The first was how we’d manage the counter-attack because it was likely that would happen and they looked like they could cause us problems if we left ourselves too open. “The second was how to break them down because they were strong through the middle of the pitch. “It took time but in the end we solved the problem and that was very pleasing. “Kudus Oyenuga had a one-on-one chance in the first half and we had other opportunities, nothing too clear-cut and they hit the woodwork with a counter-attack. It was even in terms of chances even though we’d dominated possession. “The thinking at half-time was that we needed to create more two-versus-one opportunities wide and our first goal on the hour came when Sam Cox, playing at left back, got forward and fed in Paul McBride and Nathan Byrne finished really well from six yards. “We looked in control and on 80 minutes we doubled...

Football Betting News – Bears Offense Show Big Potential...

Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler was a bit banged up and bruised days after battling it out with the Green Bay Packers on Monday night. As hurt as he was, Cutler got some relief from the early advantage brought about by the Bears’ fresh offense. The Chicago Bears are now 3-0 and the only unbeaten team in the NFC, with its offense providing its share of highlights under new coordinator Mike Martz. “We’re growing, we’re still young, we’re still pretty young in this offense,” Cutler said.  “I think Mike is still trying to figure out exactly where we’re at, what he can call in certain situations, what we can handle on a week to week basis as far as game-planning wise, what we can handle during the game, what he can go do, what doesn’t really work for us.  So, like everyone is still kind of growing and gelling together.” Even Martz isn’t sure how good the Bears’ offense can be. “I really don’t know, and that’s the fun part of this,” he said.  “There’s enough talent here, and it’s exciting because each week we continue to get better.” The Bears seem to have no difficulty getting the big plays, with 12 completions for 20 or more yards tying them for fifth in that category.  But when they needed a yard on fourth down at the goal line, like what happened against Green Bay or in the opener against...
