I am not trying to sound like a salesman. Now is the time to draft in these Sheep Leagues. You may think, what if injuries, what if players don’t sign. Year after year, players that I rank this time of the year start getting drafted much earlier than anticipated.
SSS – 2014 with his breakout preseason.
Ivory – 2015 with his breakout preseason.
Are only two very small examples, but the first two that came to my head. You will see how I BEASTED this draft with my eyes closed. You will see that if you draft a team today, you will be so confident that nothing can shake you on the outside world.
With the #8 Overall Pick, I landed a RB who could easily rush for over 2,000 Yards. The Vikings Offense is primed for a BEAST season with the addition of MEGAQON aka Laqon Treadwell. With teams giving respect to the passing game, and the Vikings returning to a Dome. Adrian Peterson is going to be running as vicious as ever, especially after his offseason work out plan where he stated he wants to be running for over 1,000 Yards when he’s 35. At 31 Years Old, Adrian Peterson will be running like he is 28.
GOLDEN TATE – DET
In a PPR League. Golden Tate is going to be ridiculous. Remember the Lions do plan on throwing the ball to run the ball. While they have not stated that publicly, you can guarantee Abdullah nor Riddick take over 15 carries in a game. Combined they might do 25. Golden Tate will be catching 2-4 passes a quarter, easily. It is not impossible to see over 120 Receptions from Golden Tate.
*UPDATE. The addition of Anquan Boldin only makes the Lions Passing game so much more dominant. Golden Tate will never be double teamed, as well as always going up against the opposing teams top corner. He will be unguardable.
3rd ROUND – 6th ROUND
MOHAMED SANU – ATL
Ya it might have been a round or two early, but at this point I know I have my dream team in the making and it would be a dagger in my heart if Sanu did not make his way back to me as the draft was heading the other direction. All it takes is one Mohamed Sanu TD this preseason to make him someone that will be drafted earlier than this pick. The NFFC Draft Board had him pretty high in regards to the other talent on the board. If there was anyone from Atlanta in that Draft Room, I felt he would have been gone.
MATT STAFFORD – DET
There was still Blake Bortles/Phillip Rivers/Eli Manning/Derek Carr on the board. The chances of Stafford coming back to me was almost automatic. However,the turn of the draft was heading in the other direction. I already have my dream team at this point, I cannot afford to lose on Matt Stafford and his 50+ Passing Attempts every game. The Lions are going to run the ball to throw the ball, and Stafford will be a TD Machine who could easily surpass 5,000 Yards. No Megatron means it is time for Stafford to drive the Lions offense the way he wants.
*UPDATE. The addition of Anquan Boldin gives Matt Stafford so many weapons, he will have too many mismatches to choose from everytime he throws the football. 5,000+ Yards seems almost automatic for a Lions team that will throw the ball non-stop.
MATT RYAN – ATL
While I do see other QBs on the board who usually get drafted before Ryan, like Tony Romo. I really want Matty Ice who is capable of putting up one his best seasons with all the addition of Alex Mack. You cannot underestimate a Center in Football as they are the QBs of the offensive Line. When the Offensive Line is giving Matt Ryan time to throw, the Falcons offense is going to be a thing of beauty. Between Matt Ryan and Matt Stafford on my team, I now can be in a Dome all 17 Weeks of the season.

MUNTRADAMUS FANTASY BASEBALL PACKAGE
I will throw in some random videos from time to time for Fantasy Baseball, but from here on out. It is all about Fantasy Football. With that being said, I introduce you to.
THE 2016 BEAST DOME MLB ALL-STAR TEAM
WILSON RAMOS – WAS
2016 YTD: .333. 13 HR/48 RBI (#1 Catcher according to CBS)
Every year every expert complains about Ramos and his health. When he is healthy, Ramos is a BEAST that is bigger than just about every catcher in the league. He is swinging a hot stick in the heart of the Nationals order and 100+ RBI season is guaranteed to come.
MARK TRUMBO – BAL
Pace.280+BA/50+ HR/120+ RBI
2016 YTD: .287. 28 HR/68 RBI (Leads the Majors in HR)
Everyone thought Longoria was done and over the hill. Longoria is a super star hitter, he has starred in commercials and has been the face of the Tampa Bay Rays like Kevin Durant was the face for the OKC Thunder. Longoria could approach 40 Home Runs before the season is over.
Was a popular article in 2015. The move to Arizona has blew up the career of Jean Segura who has no pressure but to be himself on a re-building Arizona squad. Segura is having a career year and the addition of 2B to his eligibility has made him almost priceless.
Odubel is similar to Future BD H.O.F member Gregory Polanco who I had ranked in the top of his breakout 2015 year. Herrera is a machine of a BEAST and he will only get better as he is still 24 years old.
Cameron Maybin – DET
2016 YTD: .343. 37 Runs/10 SB (Only Played 49 Games )
Everyone has given up faith on the aging Beltran, but I still saw him worth the late round flier. The Softball field aka Yankee Stadium was built for someone like Beltran who can hit line drives straight to the Jet Stream in Right. Health could be an issue and he is a great sell-high, but for now enjoy the ride.
VICTOR MARTINEZ – DET
2016 YTD: .309. 17 HR/59 RBI (37 Years Old)
Victor Martinez is one of the top hitting catchers on FanDuel all season. While he no longer catches, V-Mart is putting up vintage numbers out of the cleanup spot for Detroit. He usually has RBI opportunities almost every game. Expect a big 2nd half as the Tigers make a Playoff Push.
STARLIN CASTRO – NYY
2016 YTD: .253. 10 HR(14 HR Career High)
Starlin is having his own Superstarlin season. Castro has never hit more than 14 HR in a season, going into the All-Star Break he has already reached double digits and it would be no surprise to see a power surge take him to 25 Bombs to close the season. Qualifying at 2B/SS is vital. While his first half is a bit disappointing, do not be surprised to see the young star take his game up a notch now that he is more comfortable as a Yankee.
Holliday was injured last season and missed nearly the entire 2nd half of the season. Everyone was afraid his power would never be the same, but he is still the middle of the order RBI Machine that should never be over looked. Some players will always be superstars, Matt Holliday is one of those players.
Pace. 20 Wins. 200+ Ks. ERA >3
2016 YTD: 9 Wins. 105 K. 2.67 ERA
While Lester has been falling apart right before the All-Star Break, Lester was easily the #2 most dominant pitcher behind Kershaw for much of the 1st Half of the season. The ASB is coming at a perfect time for Lester to find his groove, the Cubs are making a push towards the #1 Seed in the NL.
Pace. 20 Wins. >200 K.
2016 YTD: 9 Wins. 91 K. 3.91 ERA
While the ERA is not sparking, the Wins and Strikeouts are everything you want from your Starting Pitcher. Samardizja aka the Shark is finding his Superstar value in SF and you can expect a lot of wins in the 2nd half of the year as the Giants get healthier after the All-Star Break.
Pace. 10+ Wins. 200+ K.
2016 YTD: 3 Wins. 107 K. 2.96 ERA
The win total has been horrendus for Teheran who cannot find run support on the worst team in Baseball. The Braves might sell Teheran at the Trade Deadline to a contender. When that happens Julio should be winning games left and right, his ERA was below 2.50 to start July.
Pace. 40+ Saves
2016 YTD: 24 Saves. 2.98 ERA
The Nickname is back and in full-roce for Francisco Rodriguez. While his K’s are nothing to brag home about, K-Rod is cleaning up as the Tigers closer, something Joe Nathan could not do at all. With the Tigers getting healthier after the ASB, K-Rod should be seeing more save opportunities.
You can take Luck out of the equation and always go with an ELITE like Aaron Rodgers with a healthy Jordy Nelson or by taking Cam Newton who has a healthy Kelvin Benjamin. Going with either guy will cost yourself a 2nd/3rd Round Draft Pick. I have a better strategy.
For the first time in BEAST DOME History. I am telling you to not worry about the Quarter Back Position and fill out your roster. When the time comes, you will be able to snag two stars for bottom of the barrel draft picks.
My QBs of 2016 are…
#1 Matt Stafford
Before you say, I don’t want to mess with that again. Stafford finished the last 8 games of 2016 going 6-2 with 20 Touchdowns and 2 INTs. The change to Jim Bob Cooter lit the Lions offense on fire to close out the season. The Lions did not make a change at the Offensive Line Position, and the Running Game is as weak as ever now that Joique Bell is gone. Ameer Abdullah and Theo Riddick who both are at their best when they are catching passes in the open field. Neither can take too many carries without the risk of injury.
The best part about Stafford is the fact the Lions throw the ball to run the ball. Golden Tate should get 5+ Bubble screens a game, and Stafford will bootleg a lot to pick up short yards in the quick passing game.
Last season the Lions faced Minnesota/Denver/Seattle/Arizona 4 weeks in a row to start the season. In 2016 they have one of the most cupcake schedules in the NFL. Lions only have 3 games that are away from a Dome, and 2 of them happen within the first 4 games of the season.
You can argue that Calvin Johnson no longer being there makes the Lions a worst team. However during that span of Stafford going off for 20 TD/2 INT in the final 8 games. Calvin Johnson went over the 100 Yard Mark during that span only once with 6 Touchdowns.
The Lions got much more athletic with Marvin Jones who can stretch the field and really go up for passes, along with Andre Roberts who is a very talented vertical threat. Most of the heavy lifting will be done by Eric Ebron and Golden Tate, but the Lions are loaded with playmakers in the passing game who can take a 5 yard pass and turn it into a 20 yard gain. The pass attempts will be there for Stafford all season, especially in the Red Zone.
#2 MATT RYAN
The Falcons were plagued with Offensive Coordinator Kyle Shanahan doing a horrible job running the Falcons offense in 2015. It is one thing to stop using Roddy White, it is an entirely different thing to not do anything to replace him.
So this season Roddy White is no longer there, and in comes Mohamaed You Sanuze You Lose. Sanu is a very talented WR who can make big plays down the field and should be an excellent compliment to Julio Jones who is arguably the best WR in the game today. Julio is still at his peak, and as long as Matt Ryan takes his shots at Julio, Matt Ryan will end up with good numbers.
The X-Factor that is really going to help the Falcons is the addition of Alex Mack. Mack was the Center with Kyle Shanahan in Cleveland, and him coming over to Atlanta to man handle the offensive line will allow Matt Ryan to concentrate more on picking opponents secondaries apart.
The Falcons schedule is an interesting one, but it goes very well with Stafford’s. Falcons play @Philly for Stafford’s Bye Week is big, and the start of the season should be a Boom for Ryan and the Falcons offense which includes a Monday Night Football Game in New Orleans. If you play it right between the two, you could be in a Dome all 17 Weeks of the season.
The Fantasy Playoffs can easily setup Stafford @Home against the Bears on Week 14. Ryan @Home against the Chip Kelly and the 49ers on Week 15. Then you can let Stafford take the Championship home for you on Monday Night Football Week 16 in Dallas, a Stadium which almost guarantees a 400+ Yard Performance as he always tears up his home state Cowboys.
In the end, you can build an unstoppable team this season in Fantasy Football while getting 2 QBs who play on teams that are constantly in a Dome. They are on teams that are known for their passing games, and two QB’s who could easily be considered on Talent alone Top 10 no questions asked. Matt Ryan is currently Ranked the #18 QB on FantasyPros, Stafford at #19. Two Quarterbacks who should throw for over 4,500 Yards and 30+ TDs no questions asked.
The time is almost here. The time to adopt a new family of Fantasy Football Players. Many of the BEAST DOME Superstars from 2014 are no longer an option, or a shade of their former self.
Marshawn Lynch (Retire) Calvin Johnson (Retire) Arian Foster (coming off of Torn Achilles) SSS (coming off of Torn Achilles)
Montee Ball (Domestic Abuse)
Added to that list is the QB we all depended on last year.
Matt Stafford (No more Megatron)
Last year we were all in on Matt Stafford. While his start was slow which included a switch at Offensive Coordinator mid-way through the season. Stafford was a BEAST from Week 12 on as he collected 17 TD and 1 INT to close out the final 6 games of the season (32 TD/4262 Yards).
With no more Megatron on the field, the Lions are a completely different team and while Stafford will still be productive when the matchup is right. He will also be much more of a QB2 than QB1 in 2016. In 2014 when Megatron went down for 8.5 games, Golden Tate and Matt Stafford were forced to lean on each other. The result of that season was 1331 Yards. 4 TD. 99 Receptions. Superstar to the next level for Golden Tate, and guess which Fantasy Expert Ranked him Top Tier?
In 2015 Megatron was healthy all year. Golden Tate was a check down target machine in what was a season where the Lions switched up their passing scheme mid-way through the year. Stafford threw for over 4,262 Yards last season. Golden Tate never had one game over 100 Yards. Tate did not even break 1,000 Yards as he digressed with 813 Yards. 6 TD. 90 Receptions.
46 of those 90 receptions came in the last 7 games with their more recent OC Jim Bob. That is an average of just under 7 receptions per game. Total that average out for a full season, you have over 100 Receptions on the year. Now imagine Megatron is no longer on the team.
It is amazing to think that Stafford could throw for over 4,000 Yards and Golden Tate not even have 1,000 on the season. Calvin Johnson made up for more than 25% of the production with 1,412 Yards, but now that amount is missing. Marvin Jones is going to be an automatic Top 25 WR in Fantasy Football this season as he comes in from Cincy to try and replace Megatron shoes. However look for Matt Stafford to throw the ball to Golden Tate 15+ a game easily. The checkdown throws, the quick slants, then those 70+ Yard Deep Bombs we saw in the preseason last year between the two.
Golden Tate will join a new club with his 15+ Targets each week.
1500 Yards. 150 Receptions. 15 Touch Downs.
While those numbers are semi-unrealistic, do keep in mind that Golden Tate has a HUGE advantage over a few WRs such as Odell Beckham Jr. and even Julio Jones. Golden Tate takes more quick hit screen passes than those two WRs combined. Screen passes to Golden Tate are vital in the Lions offensive scheme as it allows Stafford to build confidence while giving him a safe play to let Golden Tate do what he does best, break peoples ankles.
While I am sure Golden Tate will not rank ahead of ODB JR. or Julio Jones when my Rankings come out, also have to mention BEAST DOME Legend Brandon Marshall. You can expect Golden Tate to easily be a true #1 BEAST in Fantasy Football this season.
Golden Tate is locked and loaded as a Top 10 WR when my first Rankings come out
