Joe Flacco. Flashes of 300+ Passing Yard Performances zoom left and right. Joe Flacco. Flashes of winning a Super Bowl then signing a deal worth $120 Million.
That Joe Flacco, is still buried in today’s Joe Flacco. We have not seen the passing Touchdowns we expected. We have not seen the 300+ Passing Yards we expected. Instead we are seeing a QB who throws the ball 40+ Times. The results of those 40+ throws. 250ish Yards with the 1 TD, maybe 2 TD if you are lucky. Sometimes Zero.
However that Joe Flacco is about to turn the chapter tonight on Thursday Night Football. Why you ask?
Because Joe Flacco has weapons that are healthy; like Mike Wallace who can scorch up and down the field. If Joe Haden decides to matchup with him, throw the ball on a 7 yard slant to Steve Smith Sr. who still runs with tenacity and is as reliable as they come. Dennis Pitta, Breshard Perriman, Kamar Aiken, the list continues to go on and on.
SO for all those who worry Captain Joe Flacco is not the same QB who won the Ravens the Super Bowl a few years back. Tonight Joe Flacco reminds us of that QB. He shows the Ravens that they have a legitimate chance of winning the AFC North, and that is all.
Expect Terrance West to have a standout performance in the process against his old team.
The time is here. The time to give tribute to the BEAST DOME MVPs which made the VIP Package worth every penny this preseason. Below you will see picks that single handily brought you to your Championship, or even took it home. To be choosen on this list I must have either ranked the player way higher than the Expert Consensus Ranking, or Ranked him in the Top 100-99% range.
All of the Players below were recommended heavily in the VIP Program and all Rankings were viewable all Preseason long.

What more can you ask for from any Fantasy Football Website. BEAST DOME once again gave you the BEAST picks to lead you to your Championship or Playoffs. Year after Year, BEAST DOME continues to lead the way.
If you can find a better website for preseason advice, you are kidding yourself.
JOE FLACCO – BAL
Guess who has more TDs. Matt Stafford or Joe Flacco? While every Expert was telling you Joe Flacco was not even draft worthy. I was hyping him up as insurance for RGIII if anything were to happen. A player you can draft in the last round if you missed a solid backup, or add first thing off the Waiver Wire. Joe Flacco had one of the best seasons of his career, and no other Fantasy Site ranked him close to QB #1 material in 12 team leagues.
The answer is Joe Flacco with 25 heading into Week 17.
ARIAN FOSTER – HOU
Where to start with Arian Foster.Not only was he a BEAST for Fantasy Football Owners in their Championship game where he even threw for a TD! He was a BEAST everytime he took the field. Only one time this season Arian failed to score double digit fanasy points, and that is when he played at less than 50% early in the season against the Bills. Nobody believed this season could be done.
If you drafted Arian Foster this season in the 1st Round like I strongly suggested. Your draft likely sounded something like this.
MARSHAWN LYNCH – SEA
No Fantasy Expert Ranked Marshawn Lynch higher than myself this season. The person I had to black out submitted their Rankings after Week 1. Everyone this preseason was all about Christine Michael and said Marshawn Lynch was a BUST. I had his back because I know how dominant of a RB he is and how important he is to the Seahawks Success. The BEAST DOME Nation rode my back on the pick, and Marshawn Lynch with 100+ Yards and 2 TDs in the Championship to go along with a BEAST season was everything BEAST DOME owners wanted. Marshawn also led the RB class in TDs.
Adrian Peterson was my #2 RB, so if you remove him. I was the only Expert to Rank Arian and Marshawn #1/#2 and besides Bell/Murray who nobody ranked anywhere near the Top 3. I had the two right RBs for the second year in a row (McCoy/Lynch 2013).
MARK INGRAM – NO
Chances are, if you are a VIP member you were able to grab Mark Ingram at the end of your draft as a RB #5 with confidence. This sleeper pick alone gave everyone the RB depth they needed if they were struck hard by the Ray Rice situation, or needed a RB fill-in option while Arian Foster missed a few games. Mark Ingram was a BEAST and BEAST DOME was once again ahead of the curve on one of the surprise studs of the season with over 900 Yards Rushing and 8 TDs heading into Week 17.
JEREMY MACLIN – PHI
Fantasy Football owners were afraid Jeremy Maclin would be injured. They were afraid he was not going to be the #1 option in the Eagles offense. All of those Fantasy Experts who led them in that direction were completely wrong. Jeremy Maclin was a BEAST this season and had more yards than Dez Bryant.
GOLDEN TATE – DET
Golden Tate is another WR I was pushing heavy this preseason. For the first time Golden Tate had a QB with an ELITE arm and Calvin Johnson would command Double-Teams leaving Tate with all the room in the world to work with. Golden Tate had a great season leading many to Championships with his clutch Week 15 performance of 17+ points in PPR leagues.
MIKE EVANS – TB
Arguably my best pick of the season. Mike Evans is a BEAST WR who will be in the BEAST DOME Hall-Of-Fame when it is all said and done. Mike Evans has a bright future and I was pushing this guy heavy all preseason long telling VIPs he reminded me of the next Randy Moss. If the Bucs can figure out their QB situation for 2015, Mike Evans could contend with the league lead in TDs.
TEXANS – HOU
The defense all VIPs were drafting at the end of their drafts. The Texans currently Rank as the #2 D/ST heading into Week 17. This unit would have been another level of dangerous had Clowney been able to experience the fun all season long. Texans D will likely be the #1 unit in 2015.
STEVE SMITH SR. – BAL
When all looked evil in the BEAST DOME world. SSS was the name that was keeping the BEAST DOME Nation alive. A WR that nearly every expert wrote off, SSS was a Fantasy BEAST who produced like Calvin Johnson the first 6 weeks of the season. Eventually the fire started to fade away, but the memories will last us a lifetime as he truly was the BEAST DOME legend at the time of the Storm. He will still end up with over 1000 and 6 TDs. Cannot complain about that with a last round pick.
Team BEAST DOME season continues in the consolation playoffs. A sentence I wish I never had to start out with, but that is what happens when your starting QB scores less than 6 points your first two weeks of the season to start a quick 0-2. *Finished 8-5. We all felt the wrath of RGIII this season and the situation in Washington is now a 100% complete mess that is something you just turn away when you hear anything about it.
Yes, I will admit the decision to push you all in the direction of RGIII did not work out, but the rest of my BEAST Picks this season were all Championship worthy. Everything from the 2 RB strategy to start your draft with Arian and Marshawn. To the Sleeper BEAST WR weapons in Mike Evans and Steve Smith Sr. Only if RGIII was able to manage 15+ points in those first two games, everyone’s season would have been fine.
1st Place is at 394 with two weeks left. Season is not over and if I my BEAST SQUAD can come up with two strong weeks from here, I have a chance to make things happen.
TEAM BEAST DOME
As of now I am going to leave Andre Johnson on my benchwith his status in serious question. It was an unfortunate time for Andre to get hurt as he was on his way to a MONSTER performance against the Jaguars grabbing 4 receptions very early in the 2nd quarter. A lot of people including myself are not happy with the season Andre The Giant was able to put together this season, but all the targets in the world were there. Besides last week where he got injured in the 2nd quarter, he never failed to see less than 7 targets a game. That type of consistency usually turns into Fantasy Gold, this season that was not the case.
DeAndre Hopkins will finally be trustworthy in the fantasy world as a WR#1 if Andre Johnson were to miss the game. While DeAndre was definitely the better WR between the two stat wise, Andre Johnson was always the #1 and always say more targets every single game.
IF Andre Johnson is starting on Sunday, he will be in my lineup for Percy Harvin as those 7+ Targets will keep coming.
In the end, I have the dream RB scenario in play with Arian Foster/Marshawn Lynch/C.J. Anderson (Montee Ball). C.J. Anderson really turned into the RB Montee Ball should have been this entire time in Denver. Moving forward, it is likely that Montee will get a shot next season to win his job back, but it will be a battle as C.J. Anderson is exactly what the Broncos are looking for from the RB position.
With that, another week, and another week to win $$$. If your season is OVER, it does not have to be.
