    8 Team PPR 6 point QB TDs. I have the second overall pick, I can only assume Antonio Brown goes number 1. I can't make up my mind between Julio and ODB. Thoughts?

    It's an 8 team, you literally can't fuck it up.

    And if you do, then stop playing fantasy football.

    Dude, you literally have 0 room to judge someone for fantasy or even offer advice. I know I'll have a good team, I just couldn't decide between these 2.

    Unless I should go with Amendola.

    Well, I mean that's pretty obvious, it's Amendola over everything.

    Honestly, it's personal preference. You can't go wrong with either. Julio will probably end up with more catches and OBJ may end up with more TDs but they will probably score around the same.

    I'd go OBJ simply because I trust him more to stay healthy right now. Can't really go wrong with either in PPR, though.

    I haven't done fantasy in years, and my sister just called me up to draft for her work league at 5pm. She has the first pick, it's a standard league. I checked some rankings and it looks like Antonio Brown or OBJ are going 1 in a lot of leagues. Is this right even in a standard league? Do I go with Brown as the first pick?

    Everything I've seen has Brown going number 1 in all scoring formats. He's far and away the number 1 receiver. He'd be my pick.

    I'm in a 10 team PPR. I got rated best draft and am favorite to win the league, but I'm sure that doesn't mean shit. Went in with the strategy of stacking WR talent, so my running backs are a tad lackluster: Duke Johnson, Jeremy Hill, Arian Foster, DeAngelo Williams (figured I'd ride him the first few weeks with leveon out).

    Did land Roethlisberger, Mike Evans, Keenan Allen, Odell Beckham, and Jarvis Landry though. Yikes.

    Well, if you're a Tom Brady owner, who would you trot out there week 1? I plan to stream until he's back.

    Alex Smith vs SD, Prescott vs NYG, RG3 vs PHI

    Let the homer in you take over. It's the right thing to do!

    It's all right. I prefer ESPN's set up to any other format I've been involved in, as it's the most user friendly when it comes to presenting the info you want and need easily. I liked NFL.com's set up as well, although I'm not in any leagues there this year. Yahoo would be third. It's functionally pretty similar to ESPN but I find it doesn't always work right. Sometimes I'll set my line-ups and it will say it saved them, but when I check again the changes weren't saved. This has happened numerous times this year, although I've always caught it before it fucked me over.

    Flea Flicker is functionally pretty solid. What I like about it is that setting line-ups is pretty easy, and you can make multiple moves at once before saving. Searching for players on the waiver or from other teams is as simple as it is anywhere else. What I don't like is that you typically have to click on a player and go to a totally separate page to see basic information like game by game scores, injury updates, expert recommendations, etc. It's not like ESPN and Yahoo where you just click the player and a little blurb pops up with almost everything you need. They do have those blurbs for some players, but it's usually just a single sentence of text about the player and not terribly useful. For reference, I currently have three players on my eleven player starting line-up with blurbs, and one of them is my fucking kicker.

    What Flea Flicker seems to excel at, though, is user customization. You can set up leagues just about any way you want, which is likely why it's preferred for dynasty formats. I didn't set this league up myself, but it's obvious you can do a lot of things that you can't on ESPN functionally. If you're looking to set up a dynasty league or a league with a bunch of keepers, I'd consider it. If you're just doing a standard or small keeper league, I'd stick to ESPN or Yahoo since Flea Flicker doesn't really do enough differently to set it apart from those two.
