Fantasy Football: What If Megatron Was One Of Us
BEAST DOME NATION.
You can expect multiple fantasy football articles a day now to get everyone prepared for their upcoming draft. I want nothing more than for all of you to win your championship. Don’t forget to check out the latest BEAST DOME FANTASY FOOTBALL DRAFT GUIDE 2012.
In this article I will take a look at MEGATRON aka Calvin Johnson. He is definitely worth a 1st round pick in all fantasy leagues as he is in a league of his own with his body, size, speed, and QB throwing him the ball. I believe he is worth the #5 pick in all Fantasy Football leagues in this order.
1. Tom Brady
2. Aaron Rodgers
3. Arian Foster
4. Lesean Mccoy
5. CALVIN JOHNSON
With getting a stud WR like Megatron, you have the potential to get around 20 TDs from your WR. That alone is a very special thing, and that is why he goes ahead of Drew Brees, Ray Rice, Chris Johnson, and everyone else.
If you can get Calvin Johnson in the 1st round, try to get Matt Stafford in the 2nd round, and Brandon Pettigrew later on. Brandon should have a huge season as the clear cut #2 passing option on the Lions. Do not forget about Jason Hanson when it comes time to kicker.
Here is a 12 Team Mock Draft where I have the #5 Pick. One QB, Two RBs, Two WRs, One Flex, One TE, K, D. Bench.
* It is important to target good RBs with this strategy. Read this RB Strategy guide to help up.
1.5. – WR CALVIN JOHNSON
2.20 – QB MATT STAFFORD
3.29 – WR BRANDON MARSHALL
4.44 – RB REGGIE BUSH
5.53 – RB WILLIS MCGAHEE
6.68 – TE BRANDON PETTIGREW
7.77 – WR PIERRE GARCON
8.92 – RB CEDRIC BENSON
9.101 – RB BEN TATE
10.116 – WR NATE WASHINGTON
11.125 – QB ANDREW LUCK
12. 140 – RB JACQUIZZ RODGERS
13. 149 – TE GREG OLSEN
14. 164 – K JASON HANSON
15.173 – D/ST VIKINGS

This team has the potential for some monster weeks. Especially if Stafford throws for 400 Yards and 4 TDs. That is 32 Points right there. You have to imagine Megatron has 100+ Yards and 2 TDs in those type of games, that is another 22 Points. Brandon Pettigrew should sneak in there for 80 Yards and a TD, another 14 Points.
Those three alone will give you a total 68 Points, and Hanson will add whatever to that total giving you over 70 Points between 4 players. If Brandon Marshall has a huge game, or any of my RBs or Flex options. We are looking at a historic week. This is a solid strategy to use going into any draft. Do not be afraid to take Megatron in round 1, but make sure to get Stafford and Pettigrew later on in your draft. Of course draft Hanson if that is the case as well.
