NFL mini-camps were last weekend and soon enough, the NFL will back in full swing. With that, comes the advent of fantasy football season. Hardcore fantasy bums are always on the lookout for an edge. Luckily for you, I had the chance to sit down with Dave from Accounting to talk about what’s caught his eye this offseason and what he thinks about the upcoming season. Training camp starts in a month. There’s no such thing as being too prepared.
Brian: Dave, what’s up man? How about this weather?
Dave: Crazy. My hydrangeas needed the rain.
Brian: How’s the wife?
Dave: She’s fine.
Brian: You see what happened at minicamp last week?
Dave: No, what happened?
Brian: Kyle Orton says he’s gonna retire.
Dave: No shit? He still play for the Chiefs?
Dave: Oh. I wonder when the Chiefs are gonna get that quarterback situation figured out.
Brian: I don’t know. Alex Smith was pretty good for them last year.
Dave: Really? That guy is a bust. Screwed me in 2009.
Brian: You gonna do fantasy again this year?
Dave: Maybe. How much? Who’s playing?
Brian: 20 bucks. Just me and a few buddies.
Dave: I’m in.
Brian: You got a sleeper pick?
Dave: What about that dude for the Titans?
Brian: Chris Johnson?
Brian: He plays for the Jets and he’s not that good now.
Dave: Yeah, Curtis Martin probably takes all his carries.
Brian: Yeah. Wait, what?
Dave: I heard Chris Berman talk about him last year or something. I don’t know much about running backs.
Brian: That Jamaal Charles pick was money for you last year, though.
Dave: Yeah, the Rams offense really picked it up towards the end there.
Brian: He plays for the Chiefs.
Dave: Does he?
Dave: I think that was an auto-pick anyway. Was out to dinner with Marcy for one of my drafts.
Brian: How many leagues were you in last year?
Dave: I don’t know. Three?
Brian: Oh, nice. You win any of them?
Dave: I don’t think so. Yeah, no. Definitely not. I usually stop paying attention around week three. Wife and I do farmer’s market on Sundays.
Brian: Cool. Okay well, I’ll send you an email.
