Rock Solid Fantasy Sports Picks


December 24th, 2007

Fantasy SportsWith several fantasy sports kicking into high gear.  I though I'd give you several solid lock picks.  All of these picks have been heavily scouted, and are guaranteed to succeed.  This time, I'll be covering the NFL, NBA, and NHL for you fantasy fanatics.

National Football League

1. Ben Cheeseburger – QB: He's having a great year, no bones about it.  After last year's bout with indigestion and his crotch rocket accident, he has emerged as a star.

2. Dicky Williams – RB: This running back recently made his return to professional football, and I couldn't be happier.  Pick this guy up if he hasn't been taken.  Just be aware that he's been recently sidelined with the munchies.

National Basketball Association

1.  Shaquilles Heel – C: – This big man has been lackluster recently, but I expect big things from him.  This 10 foot giant still has it, and the Orlando Magic should be happy they've got him. You'll be happy if you have him too.

2.  Kevin Nash – PG: – This is one of the biggest point guards I've ever seen.  At 7 feet tall, the Phoenix Suns lucked out when they picked this guy up.  I wouldn't be surprised if this guy ran on diesel fuel.

National Hockey League

1. Patrick Wa – G:– If you need a second goalie in your league, pick this guy up.  A hall of fame player like this doesn't come along to often.  Just don't embarrass yourself in league circles, because for some reason people often pronounce his last name as "Roy," even though it's clearly "Wa."

Thanks for checking out my picks, now go forth and prosper.

(Editor's Note: Ricky's selections have not been verified.  Some of the players above may be inactive, retired, injured, dead, non-existent or play for entirely different sports.  Please do not make any wagers with these picks.

Solid Lock Fantasy Sports Picks


November 28th, 2007

Fantasy SportsWith several fantasy sports kicking into high gear.  I though I'd give you several solid lock picks.  All of these picks have been heavily scouted, and are guaranteed to succeed.  This time, I'll be covering the NFL, NBA, and NHL for you fantasy fanatics.

National Football League

1. Larry Johnson – RB: After an excellent year on the Charlotte Hornets, this guy is ready for a breakout this season.  He recently signed a huge Converse shoe deal, so he's got plenty to play for.

2. Byron Sandwich – QB: Even though this guy recently had surgery, I think he's a viable player.  Seriously, the Atlanta Falcons are definitely lacking in this core position.  Pick him up.

3. Kevin Esther – WR: This guy is simply amazing.  The only other person the Chicago Bulls could have drafted would have been the road runner.

National Basketball Association

1.  Colby Brian – SG: – He's great.  Class act all the way around.  Bonus: You should be able to pick him up on the cheap.

2.  Bill Walton – C: – The center position has become deluded.  I expect Walton to emerge a star.  Especially after completing his hit show, The Waltons, in which a farm family grows up during the great war.

National Hockey League

1. Brian Leech – D:– This is a dicey pick, but I think he'll pan out.  I know he's known for Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous, but I think he has a couple good years left in him. Take a chance.  The Raiders did.

Fantasy SportsWell, we’re almost midway through the football season.  So, I thought I’d give you fans a fantasy football update.  Let’s take it position by position.  I’ll give you my sleepers and picks to click.  Keep in mind that these players ARE available in most leagues.

Quarterbacks

1. Dan Marino – With Vinny Testeverde making his triumphant return, I expect Dan-O to return soon, very soon.  Especially with head tackling machine Trent Green now out in Miami.

2. Ryan Hutchins – Technically, he’s not in the league yet, but with most teams firing through quarterbacks like Mike Tyson through ears, this high school senior could shake things up.  He’s leading St. Mary’s Boys School with 350 yards, 2 touchdowns, 4 interceptions, and 23.7% completion rate after five games.

Running Backs

1. Thurman Thomas – With a slew of teams in desperate need of a running back, this recent Hall of Famer could make a huge impact on any team he touches.

2. Eddy Jenkins – Eddy is Tampa Bay’s 7th string running back, cut from the practice squad.  He may be getting the call up very shortly.  If he does, have your finger on the buy button.

Wide Recievers

1.  Carlton Fisk – An excellent catcher if you’re in a bye week pinch!

2.  John Henry – After serving an eight-week suspension, this highlight reel should be ready to make a splash in the Bengals lineup.

Tight Ends

1. Anthony Gondola – This tight end is having an amazing year and even broke the all-time tight end touchdown record recently for the Kansas City Chiefs.  He’s under the radar, but still an excellent pick.

2. Antonio Fences – Even with wild fires burning through San Diego, this tight end has been a go-to-guy for the Chargers, even if he is buried on the depth chart.

Kickers

1. Rob Bironas – Seriously, this guy kicked (and made) eight field goals in one day.  I can’t even drink that many glasses of water a day.  Pick him up.

2. Martin Grammerica – He’s short, but powerful. Just wait for a team to have trouble dinging it through the uprights, and he’ll be starting in no time.

Defenses

1. Houston Oilers – Even though they lost in a nail biter last week, I think they are a solid buy.  And with Warren Moon at the helm, how can you go wrong?

Thanks for checking out my picks, now go forth and prosper.

Fantasy Sports Well, football season is almost upon us, and as always I have my "must have" fantasy football players for the season.  If by some fluke you should happen to get all of these players, you will no doubt win your league championship.  Oh, and don't come back here complaining when one of my picks doesn't work out.  I'm not the oracle at Delphi, and you didn't pay for my expertise.  Anyway, on with the show…

Quarterbacks

1. Michael Vick – After a shaky off-season, he should be ready for a solid year.  Lord knows he's competitive. 

2. Roger Clemens – "The Rocket" has an arm like no other.  He should rack up some serious yardage this year.

3. Adam Sandler – After beating the prison guards in a scrimmage, he should be ready for the NFL.  He will definitely have an immediate impact on the league.

Running Backs

1. 'Pacman' Jones – I predict a full season of touchdowns and wrestling defenders into submission.

2. O.J. Simpson – Even though his salary will be heading to the Goldman family this season, he should still produce solid numbers.

3. Carl Lewis – In a word: He's fast.  Definitely a feature back.

4. Barry Bonds – Even though he's not popular with the fans.  He should breaks some records this year.  All time touchdown mark anyone?

Wide Recievers

1.  Terrell Owens – With Tuna out of  the way, this playmaker will soar.  You might want to consider starting him at quarterback as well.

2.  Steve Largent – A fantastic white playa.  He takes care of bidness, and there's no denying it.

3.  Willie Mays – This cat has great hands.  Over the shoulder catches?  Forget about it.

Tight Ends

1. Carmen Electra – Kidding.  Although she does have a tight end, if you know what I mean. Wink.

2. Jeramy Stevens – A respectable gentleman on and off the field.  Take him to grandma's house, and put him on your team.

3. Mike Ditka – End of story.

Kickers

1. David Beckham – His excellent leg work is sure to win some games and rack up some goals. 

2. Steve Nash – Even though I disagree with the haircut, he's still one of the finest kickers in the league.

3. Todd Sourdough – He's a chiseled veteran, can't go wrong with that.

Defenses

1. Chicago Bears – Seriously, who else could you put here?

2. Detroit Pistons – Always impressive on the defense side of the ball.  With Rasheed Wallace holding down the fort, they are a solid investment.

3. New York Rangers – Even though Gretzky doesn't play defense, he's still a threat. 

Thanks for checking out my picks, now go forth and prosper.
