Kelsos Helmet Rankings Of Power Week 3


Well we now have no undefated teams or no winless teams.  Divisions tightend up big time.  Bye weeks start will they bite your team?
Controversy over draft style and customized league swirled this week in the BAFF. Everyone is encouraged to air there opinion on the matter.  Lets get to the rankings...

1) THURMAN IN HIS PRIME (1) - Holding true to his #1 ranking Thurman takes the high point money for week 3 and now is 38 points ahead of any other team.  Consistency is his motto.  A tough road ahead though, with back to back bye weeks for Plaxico is definetly a test.  WR squad in a whole is desimated this week with Wayne on bye, Antonio Bryant and the coke sniffing Matt Jones will now have to shoulder the load.  Nope give that job to the 2nd WR in all of fantasy football Santana Moss, a pleasant surprise for a #3 WR, huh!  Cutler should continue to roll against KC, Gore looks like a better pick than Moss every single week,and as for Thomas Jones? I'd start Stewart.  Tough matchup with a HOT BTAN team, but we all know Thurman comes to play.

2) Fear & Loathing (5) - OK.  You may have impressed me finally.  I need at least 1 more game though to proove Aaron Rodgers is the real deal.  After a slow start F&L has now put up 100 in two straight weeks.  Beast Mode has come to play Chris Johnson however has a tough matchup against the Viking run D.  Jennings and Fitzgerald great combo but might wanna think about going with Roddy White Over Santonio.  Eagles D looked tenacious against Pittsburgh.  Schefler back down to earth after 2td week 2 performance. Don't worry you still should stomp Ben either way.

3) Ron Mexico Kennel Club (4) - This team could be crumbling before our eyes.  Romo and Owens continue to be solid, but now Willie Parker is down for maybe 2 weeks and then the bye.  WR options besides TO are very suspect.  While Bowe is a solid threat his team doesnt put up enough points consistenly.  And your number three is a revolving door.  Point prooved for addition of the flex position.  Owen Daniels after two games could be a stud in the making.  Future success may ride on the heels of MJD, Pierre Thomas on your bench is returned to useless with Deuce coming back this week.  Green Bowls stand no match for this iron lung.

4) Green Bowl Packers (2) - Continues to put up points each week but from different players.  Housh finally woke up for 20 this past week and Drew Brees throws for 400 yards like its his job.  Steven Jackson been doing an awful lot of complaining lately, sounds like Nugget!  How many touches will Earnest Graham continue to get if Griese throws the ball 67 times a game?  Nuggets Nut Sac isn't big enough to pull the trigger on a deal so this team may fade into mediocrity.  Hines Ward & DeSean Jackson have both cooled off and Patrick Crayton has really been nonexistant.  Still own the best TE in the business in my book.  Your bowls beat this week! Like you!

5) Kelsos Helmet (6) - Pulled out a squeeker last week to find the win column for the first time all year.  It felt good boys, even if I did only score 79.  The retooling of the Helmet has begun.  With the additon of Peyton Manning it makes this  team much better and I gave up next to nothing to get him.  Only the 20th ranked fantasy back Jacobs and his backup Ward, who seems to run for more yards and get more carries each week.  I'd take Manning over an avg. running back tandem anyday.  LJ bounced back after complaining about carries, lets hope he's here to stay.  Big Ben is officialy on the block and gets a chance to showcase his skills for a new team before handing over the reigns to Peyton.  The Robert Meachum era has begun in New Orleans, well lets hope.  Coles is looking better and better every week, couldn't give him away 3 weeks ago and now suddenly the trade offers start to come in for him.  The winning ways continue as the Backyard Brawlers get knocked out by The Helmet with one swift head butt.  Poor guy never knew what hit him.

6) Tonight The Riot (8) -  With the loss of Brady & Colston, The Riot just continues to pull out wins and climb the power rankings.  On the heels of the 6th round steal, leading fantasy back Michael Turner, who It kills me to see do good and Anquan "show me the money" Boldin this team is finding a way to win ballgames despite the injury woes.  Jamal Lewis prob won't fill your gaping whole at #2 running back though, as well as Chanci Stuckey being a perennial powerhouse all year I just can't see it.  Banking on Devery Henderson this week to catch one ball for a 75 yard touchdown? I guess he's due.  Gates producing as per usual.  Hydro Huskies however is due for a explosion this week and you fall from cloud 9.

7) Backyard Brawlers (3) - Falling 4 spots this week are  the Brawlers, after a nailbiting loss you followed it up with a big 65 pointer accompanied by injuries to both McNabb and Westbrook that could linger.  Kevin Smith is a proud member of the crowdest backfield in football, Detroit ... Cedrick Benson, Sean Alexander, Duckett, Rudi Johnson, i dunno, is Artose Pinner still there?  Can't count on this guy, oh i see you cut him?  LenDale White does always seem to score a TD.  Gutsy move starting Trent Edwards over McNabb.  You just ruined my Bills game this week dick.  Steve Smith looked avg. in his first week back, Lee Evans could step it up with Roscoe out.  Kellen Winslow is starting to fizzle along with the Browns.  I'm interested to see how Mendenhall does, I was his biggest supporter to begin the season.  Bernard Berrian still shouldnt be on a roster.  Taking a trip to th ER to stitch up your lip and broken nose after the kelsos helmet headbutt.

8) Hydro Huskies (7) - Benching Favre this week in favor of the hot hand and JT "dont call me JP" O' Sullivan might be a good play.  Barber and Bush were dominat last week but still couldnt lead you to victory.  McFaddens toe injury could bother him awhile  When will the 86th ranked WR Braylen Edwards come around? 6 total points on the year!  Kevin Walter is a sleeper start if I ever heard one.  I like Hardy to step it up, but don't get carried away with your expectations.  I predict two catches for VD this week...TD catches from JT that is....Ha that's sounds funny.  Jeremy won't squeek by the water puppies this week.

9) BTAN (11) - Who owns the #1 TE in fantasy?  BTAN Does!  Thats right, Anthony Fasano leads all TE in fantasy points after 3 weeks.  But he's on bye this week so you'll be going with none other than...drum roll please... Billy Miller.  Might wanna sneak Cambell in over Palmer this week, Carson banged his funny bone.  Edge still has failed to score a TD and Peterson is nicked up.  Chris Chambers could be the comeback player of the year, cuz he's come back to life this season.  Holt could be almost as worthless as Randy Moss now.  Harrison on bye leaves you with a sevicable Ike Bruce as the Wr #3.  Playing the best team in the league this week so be prepared for the worst.

10) BALCO Labs (9) - Hey Cubby! Tell me how my helmet tastes.  Balco failed to show up for battle last week and shipped it's #1 draft pick in the process.  Philip Rivers takes over the helm and Brandon Jacobs digs in the backfield.  Jacobs is my favorite back in the NFL, so it was quite hard to deal him, but Peyton is just too good to refuse.  Portis has been your keystone thus far and should continue to count on this production from him as long as he's healthy.  It's official Roy Williams and Donald Driver are both #2 WR's.  Cotchery is a main target but seems to be bang or bust from week to week.  Michael Bush might be your favorite player but really quit starting him.  Lucky you play Huffy.

11) Home Field Disadvantage (10) - 2-1 but scoring third least points in the league.  Schedule is helping you out early on but that won't help forever.  Need to make a deal desperatly.  Fred Jackson & Jerious Norwood, now that's a tandem RB if I ever saw one!  Brandon Marshall will be a 1st or 2 round pick next year.  He is Beastly.  Andre Johnson's offense is sputtering like Braylen Edwards.  I hate Delhomme, I'd start Tyler Thigpen over him.  Hank Baskett...well i don't really know what to think of Hank.  Maroney is hurt and splitting carries with LaMont Jordan, Kevin Faulk, and Sammy Morris.  It's gunna get worse before it gets better benny.  Pull the trigger and make a deal.

12) A Fighting Chance (12) - Leave it to the toilet bowl champion to leave Ronnie Brown on his bench for his 5TD performance.  Take away LT last week and you scored 38 points!  Eli is solid but need to lean on Derek Anderson this week.  Chad Ocho Cinco should have surgery or something he's wasting peoples time playing.  Ask Eddie Royal how the view from the back seat is now that Brandon Marshall is back?  Don't we have an anti taliban rule in this league if not we should change that for next year.  Muhsin Mohammad should be banned.  Better hope Westbrook don't play otherwise Buckhalter won't be helping out much.  watch out for the swirlie patrol huffy.

Kelsos Helmet Rankings Of Power Week 2


Do I stress you out? My sweaters on backwards and inside out and you say, hooOoow appropriate. I don't want to diesect everything today.  I don't mean to pick you apart you see. But I can't help it.
Anyone know that song?  Week 2 is in the books.  The champ falls to 0-2.  Ding dong the witch is dead?!  Not so Fast! I've still got some tricks up my sleeve.  Standings say theres only 2  teams left without a loss.  And 2 teams left without a win.  Still WAY too early to be crowning any winners, even though Nugget seems to sure have his panties in a bunch about his fast start.   Thurman In His Prime on the other hand is deploying the speak softly and carry a big stick method and The Kennel Club is malling everything in there path.

1) Thurman In His Prime
2) Green Bowl Packers
3) Backyard Brawlers
4) Ron Mexico kennel Club
5) Fear & Loathing
6) Kelsos Helmet
7) Hydro Huskies
8) Tonight The Riot
9) BALCO Labs
10) Home Field Disadvantage
11) BTAN
12) A Fighting Chance

1) THURMAN IN HIS PRIME (2) - ZTrain Polian continues to amaze me.  Thurman is the league leader in points by a favorable 25 points and is a 40 point favorite by the guru this week!!! A  career day from Cutler though  wasn't enough to come out of last week without a loss, but you did it in style and with moxy.  Good running backs keep on popping up out of the woodwork for this team, Matt Forte & Johnathon Stewart now leave you with an overly crowded stable of talented runners. Thats not a bad thing.  If there is a weakness I see it's your WR depth, Ike Hilliard & Josh Reed? Really Zack?

2) GREEN BOWL PACKERS (3) - Another convincing win for Green Bowls makes him one of the 2 undefeated teams left.  Rumour has it that this owner is trying to shake his roster up.  I smell a blockbuster?!  A little weak at WR especially now that Housh and the Bengals arn't producing.  Hines Ward does continue to produce but  Laverneous Coles would look great in a Green Bowl Packer Uniform!  Who would have thought Earnest Graham would be outpointing Tomlinson, Addai, Steven Jackson, & Larry Johnson after 2 weeks?

3) BACKYARD BRAWLERS (4) - 2nd in points and getting Steve Smith back this week.  Anchored by Eagles, McNabb and Westbrook it looks to be a winning formula early on. The trade pending involves Back yard trading his garbage for Jeremy's junk.  Kellen Winslow has been consistent but Gates is outpointing him but still to early to tell who won out.  Probably  time to upgrade Derrick Mason and I think I can help you out in that departmet.  Tough matchup this week against Thurman might knock you down for another week.  But keep throwing head butts and elbows brawler.

4) RON MEXICO KENNEL CLUB (5) - Moving up one spot we have the other undefeated team in the BAFF Ron Mexico.  With the way BTAN has looked Pedro could quite easily improve to 3-0. Say it ain't so.  Romo and TO arn't dissapointing.  And that little pipsqueak Willie Parker didn't score last week but still rushed for 100 yards.  Take away MJD's TD and he has 1 point, only 17 rushing yards and a fumble lost.  Don't really know what you got in Owen Daniels yet.  Must be trying to get real guru on us and pick up Pierre Thomas.  Did i ever mention that I think you should change your name to Popsicle Peters Pillowbiting Pirates? That'd be cool.

5) FEAR & LOATHING (8) - Continuing to climb  the ranks with the emergence of footballs ARod.  Everybody raise your middle fingers in the air and say Brett Favre Who?  When will you bench Willis and start Chris Johnson, he's the real deal.  Great combo now with Rodgers and Jennings not to mention Fitzgerald, but I don't think Santonio is going to live up to the hype this year, i just don't think he's fit to be a #1 guy.  It does look like Culter likes Schefler though.  This team prob could be 2-0 but it has had 47 more points scored against them than any other team.  The loser of your game this week with Huskies most likely will take last place in the divison.  Don't let it be you.

6) KELSOS HELMET (1) - Well the champ now took two suckerpunches to start the season.  The time has come to drop out of the coveted #1 spot.  Laid a total egg last week scoring a measly 63 points, now that's not gunna beat anybody is it?  But i do have the next most points scored against me  Giving Larry Johnson one last try this week so he better show up.  I'm predicting a huge day from Moss against Miami.  Going with a tough managerial call and benching Shockey in favor of Big John Carlson this week.  Tenness has been one of my favorite draft picks so far.  Big matchup this week with Balco Labs will have Kelso bringing his "A" game.  Can not fall to 0-3, it just won't happen.  GUARANTEE IT!

7) HYDRO HUSKIES (6) -  The water puppies improved to 1-1 last week with a close matchup with the Brawlers, despite benching McFadden who scored 20 on his bench.  It'll have to be Barber and Bush again this week with McFadden banged up.  Braylen Edwards has been getting shit for dropping balls, he should be OK.  If not Calvin Johnson could have emerged as a true stud WR last week with his performance.  I heard Matt Cassel be talked about as the start of the week against Miami, but I see your staying loyal to Favre.  O'Sullivan throws for 350 and not a single ball to Vernon Davis?  Guess he's not the go to guy afterall.  Can stay out of the basement with a win this week.  My moneys on you Davis, don't dissapoint.

8) TONIGHT THE RIOT (12) -  Moved up 4 spots for handing me a 42 point throttling.  Newly stolen QB Kurt Warner to Boldin combo for 3 TD's a piece was the death of me.  Chad Pennington would have been a much more viable replacement for Brady I believe. HA!  Turner is back to earth, as I suspected.  Also I think I told you Ryan Grant was junk after the draft.  Jamal Lewis is a good add of depth for you, I like the deal.  Also told you Bernard Berrian doesn't deserve to be on fantasy rosters and now he's not.  I really can't beleive you actually picked up Chanci Stuckey, now your starting him. LOL.  We'll see how that goes.  Tough matchup against the ButtNugget this week and I need a loss from you to stay in the division race.  Don't be surprised not to be back in the win column after blowing your wad on me last week.

9) BALCO LABS (7) - Two sub par performances from Peyton Manning leaves Balco fans calling for Phil Rivers!  Clinton Portis is solid, I'll give you that but the three headed monster of Fargus, Michael Bush, & Selvin Young is about as pitiful of 2nd running back options as they come.  Only 20 yards from Cotchery cuz Chanchi Stuckey gave Favre a reach around.  Drivers stock is up now and should continue to produce now that Rodgers is feeling it, and Roy Williams will be fine.  Don't think your getting back into the win column this week.  Semi Final rematch and Kelsos got his game face on BITCH!

10) HOME FIELD DISADVANTAGE (11) - It's back to reality for the Disadvantage.  Only 10 points out of the league lead for least points scored.  Hasselback has NO buddy to throw to.  Addai's line is breaking down and he had 20 yards rushing last week.  Maroney did him better and rushed for 16.  Plus you have no backups to speak of in Scotts brother Jerius Norwood and  Brandon Marshall is definetly the anchor of this team, prob should trade him  and do some remodeling on your team.  Good thing your playing Huffy and you can feel good about winning 2 in a row possibly.

11) BTAN (9) - Jimbo it doesn't look good my man.  Low points after two weeks goes to you and your facing a matchup against undefeated Ron mexico team this week.  What the hell's the matter with Carson?  Scoring 2 and 1 in back to back weeks. LOL. Your WR's are above average, Chris Chambers looks to be warming up in San Diego, Holt got in the action, and Marvin Harrison should be back to form this week.  I'd be surprised if Edgerin scores more than 2 TD's all year with Tim Hightower hogging any and all goaline carries.  AP is banged up also, maybe you should think about talking to Nugget about obtaining his favorite player Chester Taylor.  Fasano isn't going to cut it at TE any better than Alge Crumpler could.  Say hello to my little friend, 0-3.

12) A FIGHTING CHANCE (10) - Not to much to see here.  Relying on the arm of Eli and the legs of LT.  This could be the bust year LT has never been accustomed to.  Sammy Morris isn't gunna pick up the slack.  Face it Chad Johnson isn't the same and either are the Bengals.  Eddie Royal is good but won't be consistent enough to rely on all year.  Looks like you'll be looking to Justin Gage to fulfill that roll.  Good luck with that.  Your bench is just putrid.  Make some moves shake things up and cut some of those bums!  I gotta poop can I use your toilet seat?
And I leave you with this little ditty...
Damn it feels good to be a gangsta, a real gangsta ass nigga plays his cards right, a real gangsta ass nigga never runs his fucking mouth cuz real gangsta ass niggas don't start fights.  And niggas always got a hot cap, showing all his boys how he shot em, Real gangsta ass niggas don't flex nuts, cuz real gangsta ass niggas know they got em'.  And all i gotta say to your wannabee cock sucking pussy eatin pranksters, is when the fog goes down what the fuck you gunna do? God it feels good to be a gangsta.  A gangsta ass nigger pulls the trigger and his partners in the posse ain't telling on shit.  Real gangsta ass niggers don't talk much,. all you here is the clap from the gun blast.  Real gangsta ass niggers don't run for shit! Cuz real gangsta ass niggas can't run fast.

Kelsos Helmet Rankings Of Power Week 1


Well guys fantasy week 1 has come and gone and it didn't do it quietly.  We all know about the huge injuries that took place.  Jeremy bent over and took it like a man basically.  Time to rebuild buddy. From now on you can expect to see the new power rankings for each week Sunday morning before the games. ( ) indicates last weeks ranking.

1) Kelsos Helmet
2) Thurman In His Prime
3) Green Bowl Packers
4) Back Yard Brawlers
5) Ron Mexico Kennel Club
6) Hydro Huskies
8) Fear & Loathing
10) A Fighting Chance
11) Home Field Disadvantage
12) Tonight The Riot

1) KELSOS HELMET (1) - Well I probably would have knocked myself out of the top spot this week if it wasn't for a dreaded instance of scoring 100 points and losing, so this is my way of making me feel better about myself.  My team produced pretty much as I suspected. Jacobs was his usual beasty self. Johnson was average against a stout NE defense.  Big Ben was Solid just hope he passes for more than 137 yards though and I just hope Moss can still be the beast he is with Matt "Sand" Cassel.  Vincent Jackson looked good but his brother Darrel couldnt get me the 15 points I needed to defeat Nugget. I don't really think there brothers are they? Shock-ey Value should be Brees's new go to guy in New Orleans, I know your all waiting for Patten, Meachum and Henderson to step up but that job is for Shockey. Also  Added John Carlson for some TE depth because Seattle is hurting big time for receiving threats and I traded for him in my Madden franchise and believe it or not he's quite a beastly white man himself!  New addition Greg Lewis could fill in nicely for a few weeks while Brown and Curtis are still out, Hank Baskett is not the Philadelphia answer I'm sorry. Probably my most guru pick of the draft, The Tennesee Defense going to be top 5 this year. Laverneous Coles is on the block. Felix Jones is a nice addition and he should blast Barber in the ribs a few times before Sunday.  Superbowl ReDu fot you Riot.  You game?

2) THURMAN IN HIS PRIME (2) - Staying put in the rankings is Prime Thurman, Jay Cutler looks like he's grasping this Quarterback thing finally, great late pick.  Gore is a centerpiece in San Fransisco, the offense runs through him.  I might be second guessing taking Moss over him this year.  You couldn't ask for a better performance from Thomas Jones, good start but would young Matt Forte proclaimed Rookie Of The Year be a better one? By the looks of the opener Plaxico is DEFINETLY Eli's #1 guy.  Reggie Wayne is probably Peytons too.  Best 1. 2. receiving punch on any team.  Chris Cooley needs to step it up or you'll be trading me for Big John Carlson or at least give LJ Smith a chance.  Bradshaw needed to get cut and wisely you did.  Making all the right moves like Tom Cruise so far Mr. Sherwood.  Keep on wagon "training" on.

3) GREEN BOWL PACKERS (6) - Whooped my ass so I'll give credit where credit is due.  For being so down and out about his team after the draft he should be happy to have such a nice squad assembled. Your such a dummy nuggy.  Drew Brees loses a target but really didn't even use him week 1 anyway.  If he was smart he'd hit Shockey all day but to be honest I think David Patten is the receiver with the most potential to gain here. Either way Brees should continue to produce.  Earnest Graham is a silent snake slithering through the grass.  Quietly got you 11 points and matched Jacobs day.  Steven Jackson is crying for more carries, so i guess that's good for you too.  Don't expect Hines Ward to continue his torrid pace.  Bengals offense was junk hope it heats up for Housh.  Crayton and Whitten were targeted 15 times Sunday so Romo is looking bothe guys way.  Td's will come from both.  Also like DeSean Jackson on your bench. I remember at the draft you deabting over him or Chris Brown Houston running back.  Nice choice.  Fred Taylor and MJD COMBINED! for 33 yards rushing Sunday and they lost 4 starting lineman...Not to be a back seat GM but I'd drop Fragile Freddy if I was you. Another tough matchup with division foe Balco this week, and I hope you lose.

4) BACK YARD BRAWLERS (5) - High points bread winner week 1 and it sounds like Jeff's taking stock in the "More Time you spend on the computer the better your team is" method popularized by Kelsos Helmet last year.  McNabb was on point Sunday and so was Westbrook, better hope that Phily Train keeps chuggin along though.  Kevin Smith is a pleasant surprise.  You got 12 points outta Burleson and out.  A week receiving core to begin with loses maybe it top threat.  Mason, Evans and now maybe Javon Walker is ready to play ball?  Steve Smith can't get back fast enough but if you win the three games he's out watch out.  Kellen Winslow produced as expected.  Jamal Lewis is a more than viable backup.  Wasn't a fan of Ginn unless you get return points good job showing him the door.  Things looking good early.  Tango with the Hydro Huskie in week 2 is always a battle.  Bait him with some green bud.

5) RON MEXICO KENNEL CLUB (4) - Handed Homefield a 54 point beat down while the Disadvantage scored just 54.  Willie Parker shut me up week one and my Mendenhall wishes.  Maurice Jones Drew may just be in for a rude awakening though.  Without a fast Willie outburst this team may come back down to earth fast.  Bowe gotta a Td and that's all your asking for, TO and Romo were on the same page and Owen Daniels scored 3 points and still crushed Todd Heps production. But guess what, he's not playing this week and you don't have a back up, John Carlson?  If I was you I'd also look at a Galloway replacement.  Laverneous Coles man!  Bears D didn't dissapoint but there no Titan Sqaud.  Should have your way with an already beaten up A Fighting Chance team and find yourself 2-0.

6) HYDRO HUSKIES (3) - Falling three spots with a 68 point sub par week 1 performance is the Hydroponic Huskies. Favre looked like the gunslinger of old.  Barber ran like a champion but took a few on the ribs, should be good to go though.  McFadden's first few weeks might be slow but he'll develop.  Might wanna think about plugging Reggie Bush in until he does, and I see you have!  What's this? The Kevin Boss experiment is over already Davis? Vernon Davis should be good for you, Calvin Johnson is going to be a horse, but Braylen Edwards led the league in drops last year and might fail to be the dominant force we all predicted.  Is Wes Welker going to fall off without Brady? Prob not.  Good choice going with the Bills D.  They look ball hawking and ferocious.  Hardy could be holding up a roster spot until he gets in his rhythm or even on the field.  Also need to find a kicker because of "Bye Week" for Houston.  Tought matchup with the brawlers and in danger of falling to 0-2. Say it Ain't Soooooooo.

7) BALCO LABS (8) - Peyton had an off week and still scored you 16, Clinton Portis was bottled up by the Giants and is bitching about his offense, and Selvin Young had 7 carries. Even Justin Fargus can't fix your running back problem.  Cotchery is indeed Favres favorite target but Driver isn't Rodgers.  Roy Williams should be consistent and rocksolid all year. But  is Tony Gonzalez falling into mediocrity? Don't act like you didn't know Bills are lighting up that Jags D all day son!  Give Green Bowl a sparking for me.

8) FEAR & LOATHING (10) - Little Brother needs a TE, Big brother to the rescue, Big Brother needs a Quarterback, Little Brother returns the favor.  You guys are cute.  But if Chris Johnson is getting passed around like a little slut, I want a piece.  Marshawn ran hard but Willis bitched it.  A 57 point butt whiping.  Average performance from an average team.  Now that you got Chris Johnson gifted back to you he'll prob stay in your lineup over Willis for the rest of the year.  If I was you I would have kept Warner and dealt Rodgers to your Bro.  Fitzgerald from Warner allll day combo. Don't worry he might trade him back to you in a day or two.  Santonio needs to step it up and get open for Big Ben. 19 yards isn't gunna cut it. Todd Heap not gunna get out of the negatives this week, so it's Schefler to the rescue. Probably gunna get stomped by Prime Thurman.

9) BTAN (9) - Pin the tail on the low point man for the week. Playing Ben this week with the two of you combined for 107 points last week, three almost four teams would have beat both your teams put together.  Now that's funny I don't care who ya are. Carson Palmer stunk up the stadium but don't expect that to become a habit.  Adrian Peterson came to play like usual.  Edjerrin is gunna get the yards but Hightower will get most of the touchdowns in Arizona.  Harrison was targeted consistenly and Chambers did catch a TD pass, but Tory Holt was non existant.  Like the Fasano pickup, Alge Crumpler eats his socks.  Probably should roll the Home Field Disadvantage this week.

10) A FIGHTING CHANCE (12) - Snuck out the imfamous 70 point win last week.  While great in the win column it doesnt help you much in the power rankings.  Eddie Royal is now your #1 WR threat and Marshall is coming back.  Eddie Royal had his best game of the season.  Justin Gage makes me laugh every time I look at it.   Dallas Clark is banged up, Ladainian is gimpy your starting Sammy Morris.  Things don't look good.  Eli's gunna have to win for you single handedly.

11) HOME FIELD DISADVANTAGE (7) - The biggest fall in the rankings is the Disadvantage.  I really don't know what i was thinking ranking them so high in the first place.  Hasselbacks weapons are depleted.  Maroney lost yards and carries and touchdowns to Sammy Morris again.  I thought things would be different with him this year to, but guess not.  You don't have a healthy reciver to start in Andre Johnsons place.  Ahman Green has to go.  Anthony Gonzalez is the 4th WR threat on his team.  Heath Miller had an off week, but should rebound.

12) TONIGHT THE RIOT (11) - Well i didn't really like your team to begin with now take away your two best guys.  I feel this is the only spot for ya until you make your team better.  Warner was a start but i might almost rather of had Chris Johnson and rolled with Pennington.  You still got Boldin and your favorite man Turner who will not have the day of his carrer like he had last week.  Not to mention Kelso Helmet memebers are boiling over the loss to Green Bowls.  Patten better bring his A game.  You know how I feel about Berrian and Gates is still not 100%.  Looks like a picked a nice week to be playing you buddy.  May the best man win.

Projection Power Rankings

The first preseason rankings were probably the hardest I have ever done.  There's just to much stuff left unknown at this point in the season.  I admit it was very random ranking process used so I decided to rank all 12 teams with a different method using the projection points that cbs gives for every member on each team not the guru points but projected stats for the season and simply ranked from highest total to least.  I was quite shocked with the outcome. The results may shock you....

1) Green Bowl Packers - 2106 projected points
2) Backyard Brawlers - 1997
3) Tonight The Riot - 1963
4) BTAN - 1929
5) Hydro Huskies - 1917
6) Fear & Loathing - 1899
7) Balco Labs - 1895
8) A Fighting Chance - 1861
9Tied) Ron Mexico - 1835
9Tied) Home Field Advantage - 1835
11) Thurman In His Prime - 1785
12) Kelsos Helmet - 1663

HA! Almost a reverse order than my Rankings Of Power!  We all know what a good predictor the  cbs "guru" is, but to be honest I could give two shits what cbs predicts, theyre' not half as guru as Kelsos Helmet.

Preseason BAFF "Kelsos Helmet Rankings Of Power"


Well boys it's only 5 days and 4 hours away as I write this. You guessed it the start of the 2008 B.A.F.F. season is almost here.  As it is the start of the season and everyone should feel they have the best team, these are the rankings as I see it.  This was tough...there doesn't seem to be any one standout team so far with a lot of quality teams with different strengths and weaknesses it's hard to put them in order.  I am posting all the rankings this year on my blog "The Fantasy Factor" so all you pukes can reply and re-buttle to the rankings.  So don't be scared and tell me what ya think.  So now without further a due I give you the PRESEASON KELSOS HELMET RANKING'S OF POWER

1) Kelsos Helmet
2) Thurman In His Prime
3) Hydro Huskies
4) Ron Mexico Kennel Club
5) Back Yard Brawlers
6) Green Bowl Packers
7) Home Field Disadvantage
8) BALCO Labs
10 )Fear & Loathing
11) Tonight The Riot
12) A Fighting Chance

1) KELSOS HELMET - Quick. Name the next QB after Tom Brady, Tony Romo and Peyton Manning last year as far and Fantasy Point production.  If you guessed Ben Roethlisburger than your right.  Third in the league with 32 passing TD's last year can tell you that Big Ben is a Big Time player.  He also only threw 11 picks and added Limus Sweed and Rashard Mendenhall, two of the top players at there position coming out of the draft to the arsenal, so, things can only get better.  Also rumours of a no huddle "K- Gunesque" offense, be afraid be very afraid.  Now as I said Big Ben was a top 3 QB last year, but Larry Johnson was the 38th ranked RB.  Definetly looking for a bounce back season from this perenial horse, but if not Brandon Jacobs has averaged 6.1 yards per carry and you know they'll be using him at the goaline with Droughns long gone. Exactly what my next back Rashard Mendenhall should be doing in Pittsburgh.  Willie Parker is a pipsqueak. Made an oopsie pick with Chris Brown and he will be cut AS SOON AS FREE AGENCY OPENS!  I passed on Frank Gore in favor of my next Kelso Helmet cornerstone, Randy Moss.  Do I really have to break down the freaks stats for you all?  I was on the Vincent Jackson bandwagon last year and he failed me.  But the mother fucker tore it up for me on my madden team, alot of upside here, especially if Gates is banged up.  Coles should also see a boost in production with Bret The Jet in town.  Darrel Jacksons value is down with Marshall's suspension only 1 game now, but still could put up good numbers in new scenery.  Kinda like Shockey, Drew Brees targeted his tight end the most in the NFL last year.  He's a red zone target if I ever saw one.  Vernon Davis is supposed to be great but I'm still waiting.  It looks like I'm in line for a repeat boys.  Always open for trade opputunities give me an offer

2) THURMAN IN HIS PRIME - Now solo after a lovers quarrel, the man they call ZTrain has taken over the reigns of Thurman In His Prime.  Out of the Bill Polian mold Sherwood drafted a powerful team.  Frank Gore is fat but could be top 5 back.  Mike Martz is running the show so think of him as Marshal Faulk.  Thomas Jones is getting rave reviews but I havn't jumped on the bandwagon yet.  I like your youth with Stewart and Forte but I hope Ahmad Bradshaw doesnt see a down. Cutler could be a sleeper, with Marshall for and extra 2 games, keep some sigar handy in case his diabetes acts up though Possible three headed monster with Plaxico, Wayne, and Moss (Santana).  Chris Cooley was picked in Maxim magazine as there Tightend for the all Maxim team, not quite all madden but close enough.  Make Maines sorry for not showing up and win the BAFF championship, I'll let ya.

3) HYDRO HUSKIES - Is Favre gunna produce in New York?  If he does I like your team alot.  I'm aboard the McFadden train and don't be surprised if he has a Adrain Peterson type year.  Barber is one of the most fun backs to watch in the NFL.  Felix Jones looked great in preseason also.   And my friend you have Reggie Bush on your bench, not a bad man to have there, he still has mad potential.  Love your recievers.  Edwards will be top 3, Calvin Johnson with a year under his belt, and Wes Welker continues to amaze me.  Hardy will give you the TD's Evans seemed to lack for me last year.  Greg Olsen was a first round pick for a reason, it's just the Bears passing game blows.  You came on strong last year and continued with a quality draft in 08.  Chargers and Bills D tandem could produce nicely also.

4) RON MEXICO KENNEL CLUB - Tony Romo was very high on my draft board, could outpoint Brady and Manning this year if the tide is right.  I'm not high on your running back squad,and that's probably why you tried to pick up Kenny Watson before free agency CHEATER!  Jones Drew is solid and I guess Willie Parker is ok, but he won't be getting goaline carries and you know I'm praying for him to break his legs.  Yeah that's right both of em.  Funny thing is i probably like Ray Rice the best outta them all.  Willis did have knee surgery and I know it was minor, but don't forget about his blowout in Miami.  If Willis goes down Rice will shine.  I'll never tell you my sleeper picks again, THIEF!  TO and Romo could be a winning combination, Stallworth could take some pressure off Edwards and Vice versa.  Dwayne Bowe is nasty but in a shit offense.  Limus Sweed could be the best rookie wideout.  Galloway is 37 how much more can he run for bombs?  Daniel Owens...I mean Owen Daniels is an up and coming TE out of the Todd Heap mold.  But he will crush Heaps production.  The Bears are still the bears and a top D in Fantasy.  Good squad here.

5) BACK YARD BRAWLERS - Love McNabb pick late, I actually thought he was already picked when you drafted him.  He should be back to his form of two years ago, plus he too was a member of my 2008 championship squad so he can't be that bad.  Westbrook battled AP and Ladanian all year for the top running back in fanatasy, I know everyone says he injury prone, but fuck that, he's a stud.  I am actually really high on Kevin Smith this year, errrr I was until that piece of shit Rudi Johnson came to town.  I was gunna make an offer for Smith but now the Lions are just another team splitting carries.  Jamal Lewis could be avg but he has some miles on those wheels.  Your WR squad is lackluster. Lee Evans and Burleson will have to carry you until Steve Smith gets back week 4. Is Javon Walker retiring or was someone pulling my leg?  Mason would be awesome if we got points for catches but until then he sucks.  Winslow is your money maker.  I wanted him so bad and Jeremy snatched him up 3 picks before me.  Good trade on your part Jeremy might be regretting it midseason.  Baltimore d is still Ballhawking. Another good quality draft here.

6) GREEN BOWL PACKERS - Divison rival riding the legs of Earnest P. Graham. I'll take it.  Stephen Jackson should be a stud but other than that you have 2 backup runners in Chester and Fred Taylor. Must of liked what you saw from Drew Brees even though he singled handidly lost a couple games for you last year one on the last play in what was against Teneesee quite possibly the best fantasy final ever.  Nugget up 1 point with 1 play left, Drees drops back and Bulluck intercept to give Nuggy the loss.  Brees is all in all a great Qb option.  Housh took over the #1 spot last year and was right on pace with Moss early on.  Hines Ward is still ticking but not a big TD threat.  Crayton could breakout opposite TO and Whitten.  Think Wes Welker.  Oh Yeah Jason Whitten, personally my #1 TE on my board, I already tried to rip Nugget off but even a dummy knows Whitten is golden.  Only trouble i see this team is it's divison with company from probably the best 3 teams last year.  But whipe the slate clean it's a new season.

7) HOME FIELD DISADVANTAGE - See what a difference it makes coming straight to the draft from work rather from the bar.  Hasselback is a very consistent productive QB right behind Brees and Big Ben.  Anybody notice in my last year ranking I said Addai would be top 3 pick this year and thats exactly where he went #3.  Should be productive.  I like Maroney better this year but he needs more than 185 carries.  Tons of potential, he reminds me of Marion Barber.  I do however hate Ahman Green, injured frequently and he had a grand total of 28 Fantasy Points last year LOL 11 years in the league is alot for a running back. dont expect much.  Norwood is just too hit or miss and Michael Turner is there now to steal carries away again.  Andre Johnson is awesome and you lucked out with Marshall only suspended 1 game.  Gafney could be a sleeper target kinda like Welker last year. Anthony Gonzalez in the same position in Indy.  Its officialy time to name Reggie Brown a BUST. Heath Miller will always have a spot in my heart as he was part of my  Championship squad last season, he's solid.  Good work Benny, looks like you did your homework.

8) BALCO LABS - I believe the expression is falling back down to earth.  That's what's in store for Balco Labs this year.  Granted you have Peyton Manning who could have a monster year but Selvin Young probably should still be a free agent.  Same for Fargus, I know he had a good year last year but Darren McFadden wasn't on his team.  Clinton Portis is average so far into his stay in Washington but still a solid #1 RB, he led the league in carries last season so you can't say he's injury prone anymore.  Expect big things from Roy Williams this year searching for a new deal.  Donald Driver caught 2TD's last year so don't expect much more without Favre.  Reached with Jerrico, good deep threat but Coles is still the #1 guy.  Tony Gonzalez would be great if we had points for catch but the Chiefs passing D is horrible.  You might think about starting Ben Watson midseason.  Good Quality backup with Rivers.  Tough division could make it tough for this team to make playoofs too.

9) BTAN - Ben tickles anal nerves is back with avengence this year.  Pummeled by the leagues toughest schedule BTAN was down for the count early.  Palmer should be a top 5 QB but if not a healthy Marc Bulger might be a steal in round 8. Everyone's sexy pick Adrian Peterson is sure to shine and get plenty of carries.  Does Edge have any gas left in the tank? At least he isn't splitting carries.  Ricky Williams likes bongs for breakfast like me, so he's cool in my book.  Another question mark with Marvin Harrison, I gambled on him in another league and Tory Holt might be heading downhill, but as for right now still a top recieving threat.  Chris Chambers is a habitual underachiever, and hasn't proved to me yet to be fantasy worthy.  Isacc bruce is about as dry as a popcorn fart.  Alge Crumpler is a below average tight end at best.  A lot of question marks but if everything clicks this team could be nasty.

10) FEAR & LOATHING - Rumored to be a fan favorite from other members of the BAFF but I just can't see it.  David Garrard don't get me wrong is a quality QB but doesn't put up the numbers to warrant a starting Fantasy QB.  Everyone loves Lynch but i dont see him being anything more than a top 10 running back.  Willis is on my black list, and busted up, can't count on him.  Julius Jones is still Julius Jones whether he's in Dallas or Seattle.  Larry Fitzgerald is the real deal but Greg Jenning should will feel the hurt of no Favre or maybe he'll thrive, who am I to say. There is nothing to see here at tight end.  Schefler lost his starting job and Todd Heap will be lucky to play 8 games but hey, you felt highly enough of him to trade away the possible ROY canidate Chris Johnson, I've heard nothing but good things about that guy.  I wanna see ya win buddy so prove me wrong.

11) TONIGHT THE RIOT - Probably the biggest surprise in this years rankings.  Sorry Jeremy but I don't like the squad.  Of course Brady is Brady but im not planning on him outpointing the next best QB by 150 points this year, but maybe.   Taking Brady early makes you settle for Michael Turner and Ryan Grant.  I'm not sold on either.  They are both 15-20 ranked backs in my book. Even worse is Lendale.  Chris Johnson I like and will trade you something for. Colstin should be solid but not a top 5 WR, Boldin is not the #1 guy on his team but again solid. I was part of the Bernard Berrian experience last year and he is hit or miss but mostly miss,and Kurtis busted his nut lifting a piano or something.  Plus i think you made a blunder trading Winslow for Gates. Winslow is Gates from 2005 and you should have kept him.  But then again Gates isn't no bum right? Watch the Bills light up the Seahawks week 1 too.  Still not a team I want to play but nothing spectacular.

12) A FIGHTING CHANCE - Get comfy wearing that toilet Huffy cuz things don't look good.  LT's on your team again after a year hiatus so thats wear your sun shines. Ronnie Brown will have to fight off Ricky Williams all year to keep his job.  Rudi Johnson got cut from the Bengals for a reason. Geez, Your wideouts blow, dont they? Ocho Cinco has torn larbum and will be lucky to play 8 games all year. Eddie Royal, Ernest Wilford, and Justin Gage (Pete's diamond in the rough last year).  Jerry Porter has upside but is banged up right now too.  What a gang ya got there.  Dallas Clark I always liked, good quality TE.  Eli and Derek Anderson is a good combo but may have trouble wondering who to start each week. Don't be discouraged with my rankings...i don't know shit.
