[Editor’s Note: Once a week, we’re going to be exposed to the inner workings of the Mind of a Yeti. Normally, his blog is found at FifthPeriodLunch.com, but he has such a love for Fantasy Football, he agreed to post some of his ramblings on this site. He’s a good guy … but I worry about him. Yetis generally aren’t known for their charm, no matter what “Harry and the Hendersons” taught you, but Yeti Vedder kinda grows on you. Like a funny fungus. Enjoy! — DG]
*The early bird catches the worm. The late bird catches crabs!
*I am never a big fan of a RB that has torn his ACL less then a year ago. Adrian Peterson is a freak of nature, but I don’t think Minnesota will want to feed the beast as much when the beast only has one healthy ACL.
*So how has Cedric Benson not been creeping up draft boards yet? He goes from playing for Cincinnati, to playing with Aaron Rodgers and company in Green Bay. I think he is 10 times the back James Starks is, so if you can grab Cedric the Entertainer late in your draft, do it!
*Things to ponder about. People that draft Christian Ponder. He’ll be throwing to Percy Harvin and a No. 2 of Jerome Simpson! That is the Jerome Simpson currently ranked behind Terrell Owens and Plaxico Burress, who both don’t have a team to play for! Good luck with that! The best thing Simpson ever did was this sweet front flip!
*The best a Simpson ever looked in a football jersey was this.
*The most guilty of murder a Simpson ever looked was this!
*PPR league? Everyone thinks Wes Welker is the sexy name from the Pats. I think Aaron Hernandez and his new contract will out catch Wes this year! Oh yeah, and he is a TE!!!
*”The Office” is going to have one final season. I thought it ended when Michael Scott left. We all know it started sucking when Michael Scott left.
*Joe Flacco is a QB that this Yeti will never draft. He says he is a top-tier QB, but plays like he is a very overrated QB. If I am him, I just throw screen passes to Ray Rice every play. I might look for Torrey Smith deep every once in a blue moon! Not to mention I am more of a Cookie Monster fan!
*Anquan Boldin is another Raven I am not drafting. He just hasn’t been the same WR since he left Arizona. I think it had something to do with how awesome Kurt Warner was or how flat his wife’s flat top was!
*Remember two weeks ago when I said keep an eye on Terrell Owens because he had something to prove. I am an idiot, but an idiot that can admit I was wrong. Take all that attention and put it towards Kenny Britt, who has been slipping in drafts, but when healthy and not making bad life choices, can be a very solid WR. The Britney Spears shoulder press is a great work out!
*Jay Cutler is worth the pick because he has Brandon Marshall and Kristen Cavallari back in his life!
*Andy Dalton and A.J. Green in Cincy will make any Fantasy owner a very happy boy! Mainly Green, of course, but Dalton is one WR away from being a great QB.
*My man David Gonos will not like this, but when I think of Josh Freeman I think of a very average QB. I’d take Mr. Dalton over him all day! Also he looks like Justin Guarini from American Idol!
*Keep an eye on Jonathan Stewart’s ankle injury. It could turn DeAngelo Williams into the monster he once was! Another great sneaky pick!
*A great team name that didn’t make my top 25: The Son’s of Ed Hochuli!
*Cam Newton’s first half last season was amazing! His second half was not so amazing. No second-year jinx for Cam. He is a legit top 10 QB in Fantasy. His dad would have you bet on it!
*Draft rule! Any time someone asks whose turn it is to draft, that person must do a shot. It will keep that jackass that doesn’t pay attention on point! Or ridiculously intoxicated!
*Where have you gone Drew Bledsoe, our nation turns its lonely eyes to you.
