2017 Revelations league

20 posts in this topic

This will be the official place to check in on the greatest league the FFPC offers. 12 of the self proclaimed greatest fantasy football minds will compete to win the coveted title of Revelations Champion. This will be the first live draft to kick off the fantasy season and will be covered live on the High Stakes Fantasy Football Hour. Technically Genesis will start at the same time but they are Bush League. Winning Genesis is like winning the popular vote. You can't Trump the Revelations league.

Revelations we make the ADP!

Welcome to the World Famous 2017 Revelations post draft review.  This is a regular season total points league and then switches to head to head in the playoffs. Shut up I didn't make the rules.  I want to first thank the new blood that joined this year. Not many have the testicular fortitude to step up to the challenge to compete against the self proclaimed greatest redraft league in all of fantasy football. Special thanks goes out to David Gerczak and whoever his co host is that featured the draft live on the High Stakes Fantasy Football Hour.  We should have been on for the entire 2 hours, but that would have probably pushed the Geriatrics in Genesis into cardiac arrest.

Now kickback, relax, and grab a glass of your favorite beverage or edible and enjoy the review.  Note this review is for entertainment purposes only.  If it hurts your feelings you probably shouldn't be in this league.  I suggest going to a safe house to be consoled by other snowflakes.

Team Rednecks kicked off the draft from the 1 hole.  He wasted no time in selected David Johnson followed up by 2 future stud running backs in Fournette & McCaffrey.  Being a savvy veteran of Revelations & the FFPC he follows that up with 2 TE's in Rudolph & Drew Brees' former lover Jimmy Graham. "hit up David Gerczak on Twitter for more info"  WR's usually are a pretty good staple to have on your team and he decided to punt this position by selecting Rishard Matthews, Jamison Crowder, & Adam Thielen. I almost threw up some of my scotch typing that.  At least he redeamed himself by selecting former NCAA National Champion and Heisman winner Jameis Winston from FSU "Go NOLES!" and Marcus Mariota.  Unfortunately this is not a 2 QB league and unless those 2 rookie RB's are both Zeke mini me he is on the outside looking at the boys competing in the playoffs.

Tree Huggers drafted from the 2 hole.  Mr. Hunter was quite reserved in the chatroom compared to normal years. I suspect he didn't start drinking early enough. Which would explain why this year is probably his best team EVAH in Revelations.  Todd started it off with a solid pick of Zeke at the 1.02 and then Kelce and Ajayi in rounds 2/3. Need I say more? Are we ready to watch him compete in the playoffs?  Starting roster will consist of ex Badgers QB Wilson, Zeke, Ajayi, Ware, Marshall, Corey Davis, & Kelce.  Going to sprinkle in a little Ertz, J Matthews, & breakout candidate DeVante Parker.  Yes, write that down breakout player DeVante Parker. Get him now while he's cheap.

 

2Packer drafting from the 3 spot shocked the world passing on LeVeon Bell for Mike Evans. While Evans is a great player I'd like to check his BAC at the time of this pick. In round 2 he takes Jordan Reed over Travis Kelce.  At this point in the show the Mel Kiper JR of Blog Talk Radio Dave Gerczak chimes bashing 2packer for taking Evans over Bell and Reed over Kelce.  He even tries to back it up with stupid last years stats how Kelce outperformed Reed down the stretch and into the playoffs.  News flash Mr. Kiper it's 2017 and not 2016 anymore! With the next few picks he drafts former #1rookie Todd Gurley & Sammy Watkins. Um, hello have you seen them play last year??? Oh that's right it's 2017 not 2016.  In normal 2Packer fashion he punts the RB2 position hoping to catch lightning in a bottle with maybe Kamara, Hunt and former fantasy darling J Chaz. This team might be better suited for best ball format, but has some electrifying players that could rack up some points in this total points format. Definate shot at making the playoffs.

Sudden Birth #4 Always a contender in this league, but this year could be the exception unless the cheatriots offense holds up. At the 1.04 in absolute shock still available Bell is selected followed up by Brady's new shiny toy in Cooks and old man Greg Olsen at TE.  With the Patriots Cialis kicking in he selects Tom Brady & Edelman next. Team is looking very good at this point so he decides to start throwing some very bad darts at Lacy, DJax, Abdullah, and then Percy Harvin 2.0 John Ross. I give it a 50/50 shot at making the playoffs especially if the Patriots offense sputters.

 

DudePlatinum Mr DraftMaster himself picking #5. Solid first 5 in Antonio, DeMarco, A Rob, Keenan, & Brees.  I award a couple extra bonus points as I have a special place in my heart for A Rob & Keenan. Somebody forgot to tell him this is a 1.5 pt PPR for TE's and you have to pick a starter it's not best ball format. Doyle, Fiddle sticks or however you say his name, & old McDonald had a farm. Come ON MAN, lay off the micro brews during drafting.  Just kidding, I'm funny like a clown.  Lacking at the RB2 and TE could be the teams downfall. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but we do thank you for your donation.

Jake Butt's Ex Yes, say that fast a couple of times.  Welcome to Revelations Shane. Kicks it off with OBJ & Hopkins. Wow I think that Cialis Sudden Birth had is rubbing off on me. Oh behave "said in my Austin Powers voice" Follows it up with a good while not hurt pick in Eifert and the guy with the 2nd best right hook in the NFL Joe Mixon.  Too soon for that comment? If you thought 2Packer liked to punt RB check out this roster of Mixon, D. Martin, Perkins, Fat Kelley, Prosise the sissy. I really like the wild card WR if you can hit them on the weeks of Moncrief, Bryant, & John Brown.  Not a playoff contender this year, but we do thank you for joining Revelations this year and look forward to your analysis of the 2018 rookies.  You're one of the few I actively search out around combine & draft time.

 

Kobeez Krew Starts it off with Me & Julio "Jones" down by the school yard. You're singing it aren't you. Kind of digging this team, or maybe it's the blind russians starting to kick in. Those DAMN Russians. Julio, Melvin, Lamar, Rodgers, Crowell Sanders, Ebron etc. This is the last hurrah for Lamar, Crowell, Sanders, & Lat Murray.  Can they pop a couple Cialis and finish strong or will they go limp into the playoffs?  See what I did there?  Again I'm funny like a clown.  Good shot at making the playoffs and if you are a betting man and getting decent odds place a few bucks on them to win it all.

Brown,  The leader of the chat room. Instead of leader I prefer Colonel Angus "say that quickly" of the chatroom picks from the 8 hole. I said eight not A hole. He wasn't beating around the bush and brought it with Cooper, J Howard, Demaryius, Hyde, T. Coleman, Fitz, & Matty Ice to start the draft.  Pretty weak at tight end and depth, but overall a solid contender for the championship. Looking forward to see if his team can back it up as much as the talking he can do in the chatroom.

Real Swipes.  At first glance I look at the team and in my Tommy Boy voice say Tommy likey, Tommy want wingy.  Kicked if off with The Gronk.  Followed by Shady, Baldwin, The Forgotten Man who's not forgotten anymore Devante Adams, Pryor, Golden Tate, Powell, & Luck. Damn, I don't need any of that Cialis I"m pumped with this team.  Obviously I'm picking this team as a playoff team and has a legit shot to win it all.

House of Cards. This team drafts like I do in Kentucky where you have to start 3 WR.  The Cialis is definately flowing now!  Starting if off with AJ Green, Hilton, Landy, Alshon, and Ty Montgomery.  Wowzers come on Bip give the rest of the league a chance. Follows it up with CJ Anderson "he sucks and Booker is better", Hunter Henry, AP, Gio and old man Gore going strong on Cialis. Seriously how many Cialis references can I make? They need to start paying me. He waits patiently until round 11 and grabs Cam Newton. Are you serious???? Just give him the damn championship trophy already! WOOOOOOO!!!!!

 

Doughboys #11.  Really loving picks 1,2,&4 in Freeman, Michael Thomas and Tyreek Hill. Picking Lynch at 3.11 not loving it at all.  Even a couple years ago when he was still on Seattle I wouldn't have picked him there. TE's are the black unicorn Bennett & hands of stone Cook.  Going to really need to hit on who he plays at both flex spots each week to remain competitive.  I like the Manning & Rivers picks late, but the picking of Lynch and then Ingram at 5:11 with the signing of AP and drafting Kamara might be tough to overcome.  Tough shot at making the playoffs with being a total points league and not a lot of star power over the first few picks. 

Iced Coffee.  I just want to start by saying I HATE ICED COFFEE, but I like this team.. My boy Nick Manderfield loves it and when he orders it at the local coffee shop he order as I'll have the Ron Meyer. He's a bit of a Richard Cranium if you know what I mean.  Obviously he went to the school or Ron Meyer in punting the RB position.  Starts the draft with Jordy, Dez, Delanie, Dalvin Cook "seriously a rookie with a bad combine and offensive line as your RB1!!"  After than mental lapse he gets back on track with Benjamin, Crabtree, Woodhead "comeback player of the year", Derrick Henry who I love love love in dynasty.  Plus to throw some salt on the woulds of this league he picks up the Ravens darling Dixon and MR. throw for 5,000 yards Cousins.  Definately a top 3 contender to win it all, but due to the team name I hope he comes up short.

 

That's a wrap on this years draft review. I hope you enjoyed it.  In partying words I'd like to quote the Prince of Darkness Ozzy Osbourne and say I love you all!!!!!!  Now turn up the volume and enjoy a little Paranoid performed by Black Sabbath for the last time live.  Yes, it brings a tear to my eye.

2 weeks 3 days until the draft.  Every year someone comes out of this looking like a donkey.... Sonny Weaver

 

Who's going to reach and take the 1st rookie?  When will the first QB be drafted?  These questions and more will be answered soon. Catch is all live on the HSFFHOUR.

Waspguy here, commenting on the Revelations draft. It is a privilege to be in the group of brutally efficient Revelations drafters, but we tip our hats to the old (really old) guard founders of the earliest FFPC draft, the Genesis drafters, with whom we are explicitly or implicitly in annual combat. It is our pleasure to represent our side in the timeless struggle between merit-based blue collar values and white-collar privilege (Chef, you should be in our league).  In the beginning, the FF earth was without form, and Alex Kaganovsky formed the Genesis league, and it was good. And then, David Gerczak formed the Revelations League, and it was, well, better. That's pretty much the whole story...

And I think this year proves it.  Looking at the Genesis draft, I should have joined that one.  There are a few good drafters, but all in all, there were FAR more mistakes made than in the Revelations draft.  Guess I prefer the better competition over the easy money :)  Sorry Genesis, but Revelations is the best this year.  I don't think any of us drafted 12 rookies on one team...

2Pack, nice write-up as usual.  But I believe my team is worse than you think it is.  I am just rolling out of baseball mode, and hadn't done my homework.  And what's up with the Cialis obsession?  You either need less scotch, or more porn.  Maybe both?  Good luck this season, young man.
