Top Ten Pokemon… A Year and a Half Later

Standard

 

About a year and a half ago I made a top ten Pokemon list. Then, a year later, I made an updated version of it. Now, due to the popularity of Pokemon Go and the enjoyment it has given me, I have gone back to Pokemon yet again. I plan on making a two years later update in December after Sun and Moon come out, but I want to have one final list of the current generations. Anyways, here is the list of my top ten favorite Pokemon.

Like last year, the following is a list of Pokemon that are not in this list that were in the list or the honorable mentions last year:

Druddigon (#27, #12, #9, Honorable Mention), Chesnaught (N/A, N/A, N/A, Honorable Mention), Braviary (#71, N/A, N/A, Honorable Mention), Psyduck (N/A, N/A, N/A, Honorable Mention), Piplup (#78, N/A, N/A, Honorable Mention), Deoxys (N/A, N/A, N/A, Honorable Mention), Sawsbuck (N/A, N/A, N/A, Honorable Mention), Raikou (N/A, N/A, #17, Honorable Mention), Cacturne (#54, N/A, N/A, #10), Latias (#20, N/A, N/A, #7),

Top 10 Favorite Pokémon…One Year Later

Standard

About a year ago I made a post about my top ten favorite Pokémon. That was one of my favorite posts and almost every year I have, in some way, made a top ten favorite Pokémon list. This year will be no different, except that the only major difference is I gave Pokémon X and Y another chance and I found that I liked the game, so there will be significantly more Gen 6 Pokémon. Here it is!

Note: The following list contains the Pokémon from last year’s list and honorable mentions that did not make it into this year’s list and honorable mentions.

Hawlucha, Swampert, Pyroar, Scrafty, Crawdaunt, Sceptile, Totodile, Glalie, and Arcanine.

Honorable Mentions (In no particular order):

Druddigon(#9)

Sawsbuck (Unranked)

Raikou (Unranked)

Now, the list:

10. Cacturne (Unranked)

cacturne_by_xbluexaurax-d47mbu4

I have always really liked Cacturne. In fact, last year, he just barely didn’t make it into the honorable mentions. Anyways, I love the color green and Cacturne has plenty of that. He has also got an interesting move-set that showcases many different distinct styles of battling. His stats are also not half bad, and it doesn’t hurt that he looks hella cool.

9. Tyrunt (Unranked)

696Tyrunt_Dream

Tyrunt is not only the single Kalos Pokémon on this list, but he is also the only Pokémon on this list that has an evolution. The reason why I put Tyrunt at number 9 is because during my second playthrough of Pokémon X, I really bonded with this guy and he kind of carried my team. He is also one hell of a cute little guy that definitely has a cool factor to him.

8. Hitmonchan (#3)

hitmonchan_by_savedforarainyday-d2dbwwq

This guy was on my list last year so there isn’t much I can say about him. However, I will explain why he fell. First of all, he does not look as cool to me as he did before. And second, there was more Pokémon that I bonded with, and more Pokémon that caught my eye since last year.

7. Latias (Unranked)

380

I’ve always been a huge fan of Latias. Fro my experiences there seems to be more fans of Latios, but I much prefer Latias. I guess one could say that I have an easier time liking cute things than cool things. Anyways, Latias is an amazing Wi-Fi battler that I rely on a lot when battling, and he seems to be the MVP of my team at least 30 percent of the time.

6. Infernape (#4)

392Infernape_Pokemon_Conquest

In my eyes, Infernape did not really get any worse, unlike Hitmonchan, it was just that other Pokémon managed to get their way above him.

5. Entei (Unranked)

244Entei_Pokemon_Ranger_Guardian_Signs

Entei has always been my favorite of the dog trio. Well… that’s not entirely true. At first, everyone liked Entei the best and I got a bit sick of him and I thought Raikou was a very underrated Pokémon. So I liked Raikou better. Then, I started to gain my senses and realized that Entei is better. It was like that for a while but recently Raikou had become the fan favorite and I started to think that maybe I liked Raikou better, but yet again, I came to my senses and decided Entei was the dog for me. Anyways, about Entei, himself, he is an awesome looking Pokémon. He epitimizes coolness and wiseness, and he has a killer move-set that fits my prefered playstyle perfectly.

4. Marowak (Unranked)

105Marowak_AG_anime

Much like Cacturne, this guy barely didn’t make the honorable mentions last year. What put Marowak up so high was that I started playing in PU, and boy does this guy absolutely wreck in PU. With my current team, I’ve been keeping track of my team members’ KOs and faints, and this guy has no faints. None! He is incredible! An absolute sweeper, no doubt. Marowak also looks pretty damn cool, so that helps.

3. Delibird (Unranked)

delibird

Now I realize that at this point most peopleare probably thinking: “Delibird? Wat? R u high?” The answer is no, I am not high. I actually just love Delibird. While he does not have an interesting moveset, or even halfway decent stats, he does have two other things I love: A cute-as-hell design and a positive attitude. Seriously though, I think this guy just looks awesome. He is also the Christmas Pokémon, so he reminds me of my favorite time of year. If I became a Pokémon, I’d honestly think that I would turn into this guy.

2. Simisage (Unranked)

Simisage.full.1283256

Simisage and I go back a long way. The first time I saw this guy, I think I fell in love or something. I just thought he simply looked like the coolest Pokémon I had ever seen. He had it all. Well, except for the stats. His stats are pretty garbage. So I gave up on my likeness for Simisage. But then, I found the PU tier. The only tier that Simisage has actually been usable. And boy, is he usable! On my PU team, Simisage is the only guy who has stuck around the whole way. All of the other original PU guys were replaced but not Simisage. Why? To put it simply, he is the MVP of my team overall. Even though I said Marowak was undefeated, he has not been in for long. Maybe 4 or 5 games. Simisage has been in a lot. Like, A LOT. He is just one of my absolute favorites and the fact that he isn’t really that popular of a Pokémon just makes me happy because he feels even more like MY Pokémon.

TL;DR version: He looks hella cool and he wrecks in PU.

And now… NUMBER 1:

Dragonite (#1)

dragonite_dragon_claw_by_izzarchron-d7yun57

Yea, he is still  my favorite. If you really want to know why, I said it best in my list from a year ago. I don’t make many posts so it should not be hard to find.

 

Top Ten Childish Gambino Lyrics

Standard

Lately, I have come to a realization: Childish Gambino is amazing. In fact, he might be my favorite artist out there. Definitely my favorite rapper.

Anyways, I’ve compounded a list of his top ten lyrics across all his songs. However, there are a couple honorable mentions because it’s just not possible to only show off ten of Bino’s best lyrics. There are so many great ones!

Honorable Mentions (No Particular Order):

“Nah nah, they can’t hold me
June/July, drop something
I double dare you, I’m Marc Summers
I scorch winters, I burn autumns”- I.Crawl, Because the Internet

“Move white girls like there’s coke up my asscrack
Move black girls cause, man, fuck it, I’ll do either
I love pussy, I love bitches, dude, I should be runnin’ PETA”- Bonfire, Camp

“The shit I’m doin’ this year? Insanity
Made the beat then murdered it: Casey Anthony”- Bonfire, Camp

“They wanna knock me out
They tryin nigga
Realest motherfucker in the game like Tron, nigga”- You See Me, Camp

“Yeah, they starin’ at me jealous cause I do shows bigger
But your looks don’t help, like an old gold digger
Uncool, but lyrically I’m a stone cold killer
So it’s 400 blows to these Truffaut niggas”- That Power, Camp

“Uh, yeah I’m killin’ you, step inside the lion’s den
Man I’m hov if the ‘O’ was an ‘I’ instead
On stage with my family in front of me
I am what I am: everything I wanna be”- That Power, Camp

“I know sometimes it’s hard when I’m so far
I know you miss this di-love”- Pop Thieves (Make It Feel Good), Kauai

For the last honorable mention, here’s a special shoutout to a lyric that just barely did not make the list:

“How many gold plaques you want inside your dining room?
I said I want a full house
They said, ‘You got it dude!'”-That Power, Camp

Now on to the list:

Number 10. You See Me, Camp

“No period like menopause
No period like, ‘Oh shit! Am I the only one you sleepin’ with?'”

Number 9. L.E.S., Camp

“She got ironic tattoos on her back
That ain’t ironic bitch, I love Rugrats”

Number 8. Heartbeat, Camp

“So we fuck till we come to conclusions
All the things that we thought we were losing”

Number 7. You See Me, Camp

“She got an ugly friend? Roll solo
Can I stay at your place? No hobo
Not my fault, man, these ladies love me
She’s an overachiever cause all she do is succeed”

Number 6. Bonfire, Camp

“Man, why does every black actor gotta rap some? I don’t know, all I know is I’m the best one”

Number 5. All the Shine, Camp

“I’m a role model, I am not these other guys
I rap about my dick and talk about what girls is fly
I know it’s dumb, that’s the fucking reason I’m doing it
So why does everyone have a problem with talking stupid shit?”

Number 4. You See Me, Camp

“If I’m a faggot spell it right, I got way more than two G’s”

Number 3. Bonfire, Camp

“My dick is like an accent mark, it’s all about the over Es”

Number 2. That Power, Camp

“Holla, holla, holla, holla at yo boy
Like yo dad when he’s pissed off
Got flow, I could make a cripple crip walk
Niggas’ breath stank, all they do is shit talk”

Number 1. Freaks and Geeks, EP

The Entire Song. No, you didn’t read that wrong. THE ENTIRE SONG.

Well, 9 out of 10 of these lyrics are from Camp. Not surprising, seeing how Camp is the best album Bino has made, lyric-wise. And, in my opinion, sound-wise.

Top Ten Fantasy QBs, RBs, WRs, and TEs cont.

Standard

Top Ten tight ends:

1. Rob Gronkowski

rob-gronkowski3

Rob Gronkowski did amazing last year, and he is, unquestionably, the number one tight end this year. But be wary, last year everyone was saying that he would get injured early on in the season, and just because he managed to stay healthy for a year, doesn’t mean he’s not injury prone. I get the feeling that Gronk will get injured this year, so if you draft him in your league, maybe you should grab a backup.

2. Greg Olsen

greg_olsen_panthers_fantasy_football

I know that I probably seem crazy for putting Greg Olsen as the number 2 tight end this year, but I really think that Olsen is the safest pick this year. He doesn’t really get injured, he always has a good season, and while he may not finish as the number 2 tight end, I can guarantee that he will finish as a top 5 tight end.

3. Jimmy Graham

jimmy-graham

For me, Jimmy Graham is on par with Greg Olsen except for the fact that he is probably the riskiest tight end this season. He’s on a new team, with a new quarterback who is less experienced and doesn’t have as great an arm as Jimmy’s old QB, Drew Brees. I believe that Graham either becomes an absolute star player on the Seahawks and finishes as the number 1 tight end this year, or he flops and becomes the number 7 tight end. The main issue is that Russell Wilson hasn’t ever had a go-to receiver, and he will be getting one in Graham. Problem is, Jimmy Graham will be double covered quite a bit. Overall, if you like to take risks, go with Graham, but if you want a safe and reliable receiver, wait a round or two and grab Olsen.

4. Travis Kelce

Kelce

After Kelce, the quality of tight ends kind of plateaus, so Kelce is basically your last chance to get a leg up on your opponents when it comes to tight ends. A lot of people think Kelce is gonna break out this year, and catch a crazy amount of balls, but I don’t think he can keep his catch percentage over 80% like he did last year. He will be thrown the ball more often so his catch percentage will go down, but I still think he will be great, and I think he is likely to be a top 5 tight end, come season’s end.

5. Martellus Bennett

hi-res-65141002a8a922cd7ce245bf65e84bc8_crop_north

Bennett, or, as he likes to be called, the Black Unicorn, finished as a top 5 tight end last year. I believe he will repeat as the number 5 tight end, this year. The Bears did lose Brandon Marshall, but they also gained Kevin White, an impressive rookie, and Eddie Royal, an old buddy of Jay Cutler. These two might combine for as much, or even more, of what Brandon Marshall accomplished, last year. So, the Black Unicorn is little bit risky, but he is still a quality tight end that you can get a bit later than other quality tight ends.

6. Dwayne Allen

dwayneallen

Dwayne Allen is another high risk, high reward tight end this year. He missed a couple games last year, and finished as a top 15 tight end, but this year, I have a really good gut feeling about him, and they always say trust your gut. One issue I have with Allen, however, is that he has a lot of competition when it comes to other receivers. He has to compete against: T.Y. Hilton, Andre Johnson, Coby Fleener, and Donte Moncrief. That’s quite a bit of competition. But, I still like Allen, this year.

7. Jason Witten

Cowboys_Giants_Football_09060

Jason Witten was committed to the run last year, and he blocked for Murray, most of the time. This year is a different story. The Cowboys will be throwing a lot more and Murray isn’t there anymore, which means that Jason Witten is guaranteed to do better than last year, and last year, he finished as the number 10 tight end. So if you grab Witten, you have a guaranteed top 10 tight end on your hands. Although, being a top 10 tight end doesn’t really say much. I’m sure he will be higher than number 10, though.

8. Julius Thomas

14200587 (1)

Julius Thomas is on a new team, with almost zero competition for receptions. Awesome! Unfortunately he has gone from Peyton Manning to Blake Bortles. Now, I believe that Bortles will be a star QB one day, but for now, he’s one of the worst starting quarterbacks in the NFL, unless he proves us wrong. Thomas is in an awkward situation where he is the best receiver on the team, but he has a bad quarterback. Sometimes this can work out, like with Mike Evans, and sometimes it doesn’t work out, like with Kendall Wright. I’m very excited to see how Thomas plays this year, but I’d rather not be relying on him to do great.

9. Owen Daniels

kendall-reyes-owen-daniels-nfl-san-diego-chargers-baltimore-ravens-850x560

Owen Daniels is a talented, veteran tight end, who just replaced Julius Thomas in Denver. I don’t think he will be as successful as Thomas was with the Broncos, but I still like him this year.

10. Delanie Walker

PI-NFL-Tennessee-Titans-Delanie-Walker-012914.vresize.1200.675.high.64

Even though Walker has a new QB in Marcus Mariota, I believe that he will play about as well as he played last year. I’m not sure if Mariota will be great with the Titans but, I still think Walker finishes as a top 10 tight end this year.

And with that, I’m finally done with the “Top Ten Fantasy QBs, RBs, WRs, and TEs”. Hope you all have a great fantasy season this year!

Top Ten Fantasy QBs, RBs, WRs, and TEs cont.

Standard

Top Ten Fantasy wide receivers:

1. Antonio Brown

7884768

There isn’t a question on who is the best wide receiver this year. That’s because last year Antonio Brown blew everyone out of the water. Antonio Brown is, no contest, the best wide receiver for 2015. Also if you’re in a PPR league, he is definitely a top three pick.

2. Odell Beckham Jr.

D360-featured-image-Odell-Bechman-Jr-Better-Than-Perfect-660x400

I’m a huge believer in Odell Beckham this year. Why? Well, maybe it’s because Odell Beckham finished as a top five Wide Receiver last year… And he only played 12 games… And he was rookie… And he had the best football catch in recorded history. This year, Odell is starting the first week of the season and I expect him to be playing in every game this. Even as a 2nd rounder, I think this guy could be a steal.

3. Dez Bryant

dez-2

Dez Bryant has a great opportunity this year. He finished as a top three wide receiver last year, and this year, he doesn’t have DeMarco Murray on his team. Just that statement, alone, can justify me putting him as my number 3 fantasy wide receiver this year.

4. Julio Jones

Julio-Jones1

I really like Julio this year. I believe that he will perform very similarly to last year, except a little bit better. I guess you could say he’s basically a reverse Marshawn Lynch, based on how I think of him. I’m also a Falcons fan, so, honestly, he might actually be a spot or two below where I have him ranked. I seriously did try to avoid bias while making this list, though.

5. Calvin Johnson

calvin-johnson

“Megatron” is coming back this year, and in a big way. Remember last year, when Calvin Johnson was the undisputed, number 1 fantasy wide receiver. I do, and I don’t think he is much worse than he was at that point. Honestly, I would rather have someone like Calvin Johnson who doesn’t have a lot of competition than someone like Jordy Nelson, who will have to share catches with people like Randall Cobb, and Davante Adams.

6. Demaryius Thomas

0283312001434204730_filepicker

I’m kind of low on Thomas this year, compared to last year, where I thought he had the potential to be the number 1 guy. Only problem is that Emmanuel Sanders emerged to become a top-tier receiver, and he will interfere with Thomas getting the ball. It is good for Demaryius that Julius Thomas is gone, but they replaced him with Owen Daniels, and, in my opinion, Owen Daniels is about equal to Julius Thomas, in skill. So I think Demaryius Thomas will have a similar year to last year, except maybe 1 or two more bad games.

7. Jordy Nelson

jordy-nelson2

Jordy Nelson is basically a slightly worse Demaryius Thomas (even though Nelson did better than Thomas last year). This is because they are in very similar situations, except Nelson is competing with Cobb, while Thomas is competing with Sanders. In my opinion, Cobb is better than Sanders. Therefore, Thomas is better than Nelson.

8. Alshon Jeffery

13-alshon-jeffery-wr-chicago-bears_pg_600

Alshon Jeffery is an amazing talent, and he did quite well, last year. As a Bears fan, I’ll say that at times it seemed like he was the only true receiving option that Chicago had. With Marshall gone, and Cutler with pretty much only 1 year left to prove himself, I think that Jeffery will have a standout season, this year.

9. A.J. Green

maxresdefault

A.J. Green didn’t do too hot last year, but he did have an injury, and we did see the rise of my favorite player ever (totally not a joke), Mohamed Sanu. Seriously though, Sanu is a great player. I still like Green this year. Not as much as I did, last year, but I still like him, nonetheless. I am absolutely positive that Green will end up being a top fifteen wide receiver at the very least.

10. DeAndre Hopkins

Hopkins

As a past Hopkins-owner, I can say that I really liked how Hopkins played last year. Thing is, this year, Hopkins has a better quarterback and he no longer has to compete with Andre Johnson for targets. DeAndre Hopkins is pretty much Houston’s number one receiver, and I’d rather have Hopkins than someone like Randall Cobb or Kelvin Benjamin, to be honest.

I will post my top ten tight ends either tomorrow or Saturday. See you then.

Top Ten Fantasy QBs, RBs, WRs, and TEs cont.

Standard

Top Ten Fantasy running backs:

1. Adrian Peterson

adrian-peterson-1024

Yes, that’s right, my number 1 running back is Adrian Peterson. Reason? Well, for one, he has a had a whole year of rest. Last time he had a year to rest he won the MVP award. Also, he hasn’t ever really had a bad season. And he seems to be as determined as ever and he has a huge chip on his shoulder. I completely and 100% believe in AP this year. If there was one player I would have to choose as my pick for #1 Fantasy player of the ’15-’16 season, it would be AP. It also helps that he has a better quarterback, so in PPR leagues, he’ll be even more valuable.

2. Jamaal Charles

JC

Jamaal Charles seems to always be good. Yes, he had an off-year last year, but he still finished as a top ten running back. Also if Charles gets injured, then you know you have a good replacement in Knile Davis. Which reminds me, if you draft Jamaal Charles, Knile Davis is an absolute must draft player.

3. Arian Foster

arian-foster

Last year was the first year that I decided to go all in on Foster, and guess what? He ended up being a top five RB and he didn’t even play the entire season! Foster is in an even better situation, where he will be the bell cow for the Texans. Houston has a great defense, so there will never be situations in which running with Foster will be a bad choice, and they have some “Eh” quarterbacks so running with Foster is the simplest choice to make. Honestly, Arian Foster is the best offensive player on the Texans, and I believe that Houston will take advantage of this.

4. Le’Veon Bell

LeVeon-Bell

If Bell wasn’t suspended for the first two games, he would be talked about as the consensus number 1 pick among running backs. Hell, he would probably be my first or second choice. But, honestly when I pick my first player to be on my team, I want him to be able to score hefty amounts of points every week, especially at the start of the season. He is still a great pick though. If we are only talking PPR, Bell would be my number 3 running back, barely beating out Foster.

5. DeMarco Murray

CFjUi7wUgAMvMn6.0.0

Murray was the number 1 running back last year. Why is he not the number 1 running back this year? Well, for one, he’ll probably have a smaller workload. He is also in a different system, and the Eagles like to throw a lot. and lastly, if he does end up with a large workload like last year (497 touches!), odds are he’ll get injured. However, his backup, Ryan Matthews, is about the best handcuff you can have. Only problem is Matthews is actually being drafted before almost any other backup RB in the league. So if you do grab Murray, make sure you either draft, or trade for Matthews.

6. Marshawn Lynch

461418789-running-back-marshawn-lynch-of-the-seattle-seahawks.jpg.CROP.rtstory-large

I think that Lynch’s ’15-’16 season will look an awful lot like last year’s season. Except a little worse. I expect him to produce slightly less than last year, and I expect him to get slightly less touches. This is due to Lynch’s lack of motivation and drive. He is clearly unhappy being a Seahawk, and honestly, I’m surprised he got re-signed. I believe that he will have a smaller workload, because of the signing of Jimmy Graham. Russell Wilson finally has a good option in Graham, so the Seahawks will probably pass a lot more. Overall though, he’s a solid starter

7. Jeremy Hill

usp-nfl_-cincinnati-bengals-at-cleveland-browns-e1418672028258

Hill barely managed to crack the top ten running backs last year. Thing is, he only started about 9 games last year. I still expect the Bengals to use Giovani Bernard quite a bit, but when it comes to the bulk of the carries and goal-line carries, Hill will beat out Bernard, and he will be a great RB to have on your roster come week 1.

8. Eddie Lacy

eddielacy

Seeing how I have Lacy as my number 8 running back and ESPN has him as their number 2 running back, I’m clearly low on Lacy this year. However I don’t understand why. Does no one remember how absolutely god-awful Lacy was for the first couple weeks of 2014? As a 2014 Lacy-owner, I sure do. And lucky for me, I traded him away the week before his hot-streak began, so Lacy has left a bad taste in my mouth, and I’m simply not a fan of his.

9. Matt Forte

matt-forte

On the surface, it looks like I’m down on Matt Forte this year. However, I’m really not. I just think that 2015 will be a great year for running backs. If you picked Forte in the first round, I wouldn’t think you made a bad decision at all. He looks like he’ll have a great year, especially for PPR formats. Unfortunately though, the new head coach of the Bears, John Fox, doesn’t really use pass plays involving running backs much. So don’t expect to see him catching nearly as many passes as he did last year.

10. C.J. Anderson

hi-res-31176ff62c4dff0d2a6edc54d6ffbb78_crop_north

Last year, C.J. Anderson only had 7 games where he had double digit carries. C.J. Anderson also ended the year as a top 15 running back.  This statistic just shows how good C.J. Anderson really is. Unfortunately, 7 games is a small sample size and it isn’t quite enough to convince me that he is an elite running back on par with Arian Foster and Marshawn Lynch. C.J. Anderson is probably the riskiest RB of this whole list, but if that risk pays off he could be a top five RB by the end of the season.

The list for Top Ten WRs will be up shortly, likely later today or tomorrow.

Hey Everyone, it’s been a while since my last post, but I’ve been quite busy lately, and there’s isn’t a real motivation for creating posts on this site. No one tells me to do this, and no one really reads the posts. I mostly do it for fun, now. Anyways, today I have written my Top Ten Fantasy list for QBs, RBs, WRs, and TEs. Unlike last year, I won’t write down when you should draft them, because most of the time, drafts have their own flow to them and they are different from other drafts. Also many people do not play a standard 10-team league. For example my two most competitive leagues that I care about the most are an 8-team PPR league, and a 14-team standard league. Anyways, first up is Top Ten QBs.

1. Aaron Rodgers

Aaron Rodgers has proven to be the most consistently great quarterback, not only in fantasy, but just in general. You can start this guy every week and count on him to be the highest scorer of your team.

2. Andrew Luck

Andrew Luck is my number 2 quarterback this year. While I, personally, would sooner choose Andrew Luck than Aaron Rodgers, Rodgers is more consistent, Luck, however, is a low risk, high reward type guy. Normally, I would say high risk, high reward, but I don’t see any way that Luck doesn’t finish the year as a top 5 quarterback. Overall, I believe that Luck has a higher ceiling than Rodgers, but Rodgers will never score you single digits, while Luck may do so once or twice a year.

3. Peyton Manning

Peyton-Manning

Peyton Manning is my next favorite quarterback at this position. Some say that he is too old and this season he’ll be a bust, but I think he is still a solid QB and definitely solid enough to draft as the third overall QB.

4. Ben Roethlisberger

Ben

I’m really big on Ben this year (see what I did there) and I expect him to have a great season this year. He has Antonio Brown, and Martavis Bryant, both being fantastic receivers, and he also has LeVeon Bell, the best pass-catching back in the league, in my opinion. Even better, because Bell is suspended the first two games, they’ll be throwing more than they ever have been last year in those games. The Steelers play the Patriots, who have lost Darrelle Revis, and the 49ers, who have a subpar defense this year. Expect to see big numbers from Big Ben this season.

5. Russell Wilson

I’m a bit down on Russell Wilson this year. Believe me, I love the guy, but I just don’t think he can recreate what he did last year. Yes, he has Jimmy Graham on his team now, but I still don’t quite believe in Russell, the way I did last year.

6. Matt Ryan

Unlike Russell Wilson, I still believe in Matt Ryan, even though I have Wilson ranked higher. I feel like the players surrounding Ryan just keep getting better and better. There may be a bit of bias due to the fact that I’m a huge Falcons fan, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that I’m wrong about him.

7. Tony Romo

I really, really like Tony Romo this year. He did great last year, for a player that ranked 23rd in pass attempts. This year, however he lost DeMarco Murray, but he retained Dez Bryant and Terrance Williams is becoming more experienced (SLEEPER ALERT!). Tony Romo is an underrated quarterback who has the ability to crack the top 5 this year.

8. Drew Brees

Last year, I had Brees as my number 2 QB. This year he has fallen to number 8 for one reason only. He lost Jimmy. Without Jimmy Graham, he no longer has a go-to receiver. I’m also not a huge fan of Brandin Cooks, so i believe that Brees just isn’t in a great position.

9. Ryan Tannehill

I feel good about Tannehill this year. I mean, just look at his receiving corps: Kenny Stills, Jarvis Landry, rookie DeVante Parker, and Jordan Cameron. While there are no elite receivers among that group, it’s still a solid group of guys. And when a Harvard study determines that the Super Bowl will be the Dolphins V.S. the Seahawks, that’s not a bad thing for Ryan Tannehill.

10. Eli Manning

Eli Manning was really bad for the first few weeks last year. Then he got a lot better and turned things around. Why? Odell Beckham Jr., that’s why. Odell Beckham will start this season healthy, so I fully expect Eli to be good and surprise his critics. However, if you do grab Eli, I would recommend getting a backup QB, in case OBJ gets injured and Eli sucks again.

I feel like this post is getting a little long so I will post the Top Ten Fantasy RBs shortly.
