PICK-UP

Q: Sup dudes, new listener here. I'm now a fan! A lot has been said about Jeremy Hill. Can you guys talk about Hill vs. Gio Bernard, and where Gio slots in the tiers? Gio seems to be living on the back of a milk carton, but after his Rookie year, he cant POSSIBLY be irrelevant - especially in PPR. Thanks guys, love the show! PS - D-Rex - you sound exactly like WWE Superstar Dean Ambrose on the mic. -Justin, Cincinnati/Louisville @justinhiteart Asked 05/19/15 by justin hite

A: Justin, Thanks for the kind words bro. Here is how I see Hill vs. Gio and I will keep it PPR centric a little. In standard Hill is ranked 10th for us and Gio is 27th. In PPR the gap closes exponentially with Hill moving to 11th and Gio bumping up to 20th. Hell in PPR last season Gio finished as the 16th back in just 13 games. I actually like him in the pure change of pace and third down role more, as runners of his size can suffer injuries running between the tackles where the average player has 60 pounds on them. Go is currently being drafted as running back 28 while Hill is RB 11 so Gio is a much better pure value in my eyes. I like that he is being forgotten, allows a savvy owner like me and you to pick him up on the cheap. Stagg Party Answered 05/19/15 by Stagg Party

Q: Any chance you guys will include PPR tiers in your Draft Kit? I made my own, but your recent podcast about busts has me doubting some of them now. Asked 05/14/15 by Tom W

A: We have PPR ranks in our draft kit. Have since version 1 and will constantly be updating. Stagg Party Answered 05/14/15 by Stagg Party

Q: i have option of keeping one player should keep andrew luck jammal charles or jimmy graham Asked 04/20/15 by christopher spires

A: I would do Andrew Luck in a minute... 16 games, he'll finish #1 or #2 in scoring over everyone at every position. Great place to start your draft from. Go with Luck. //d-Rx® Answered 04/20/15 by d-Rx

Q: Bought the draft guide last week. Love it, thanks so much for all you guys do! Any chance you guys do an auction mock for 2015 and add it to the doc? Maybe add in auction $ amounts on your rankings? The "average" player snake drafts.. But as an avid dynasty & keeper league guy, I absorb much more analysis from auxtion values since it's more about what you'd pay vs what falls to you. Asked 04/19/15 by Matt Parmely

A: Thanks Matt! We'll do an auction draft... not sure which one - or how we will pull it off, but we'll do one. You want to be in it with us? WE'll figure it out in a couple weeks (next Draft Kit comes out on the 15th of May). I think we do the auction for version 3. Good idea! //d-Rx® Answered 04/20/15 by d-Rx

A: Pyro Pro won't be released for another month or so and we do nor have a date and time set for that. The Draft Kit will be released tomorrow around 1 PM. Answered 04/14/15 by Stagg Party

Q: Hello to the PASSIONATE FANTASY FOOTBALL PYROMANIAC TEAM!!! You guys have the same fire that burns in me. I have a thought on this years best sleeper bargain. His name is Darren McFadden. I am a Cowboy fan that believes DMC will be a top 10 fantasy RB with ease if the job is his. Adrian Peterson would be such a harsh cap hit that I think Dallas should consider passing on him. Don't get me wrong, I will pop a woody is they get him. If they don't then DMC is going to put up huge numbers. DMC has a running style similar to DeMarco Murray. They are one cut slashers. DMC is FASTER. Dallas might miss out on Gordon and Gurley on draft day. If they do then what does Dallas have? DMC is who they will have. Joseph Randle will play some of course but, Darren McFadden will play inspired football with that STAR on his helmet. He wants to make Jerry Jones proud of him being he is a Razorback Alum. Do any of you Pyromaniacs feel like I do? You will... Asked 04/10/15 by STiFFKiTTY STiFFKiTTY

A: Darren McFadden could be a value or he could be injured. DMC is a huge risk reward pick this season. At this stage in his career DMC has lost some of the top end speed and explosion he once had. I would bet that Murray would win a foot race at this stage in their careers. If they don't end up drafting someone then I believe it will be a there person committee with DMC seeing the most touches. Stagg Party Answered 04/14/15 by Stagg Party

Q: My league does not require a TE but uses 2 WR/TE slots. I can keep Gronk for a 5th round pick. Where would you slot him in your WR tiers? Valverde fellas! Chris in Detroit Asked 03/27/15 by Chris Dever

A: Chris, Gronk would rank in tier three for me, at the cost of a fifth round pick I think he is well worth the cost. He might be at the very top of tier three as it currently stands right ahead of Mike Evans. Stagg Party Answered 03/27/15 by Stagg Party

Q: With the Saints sending Jimmy Graham to Seattle and Stills away as well is it time to retire Brees on draft day this year? Cooks is rather young and Colston sucks now. Even Pierre out of the backfield is no longer an option. The Saints have the worst salary cap situation right now to go along with the lack of pass catchers. I am considering Eli over Brees this year since Eli will have ODB and a healthy Cruz. Asked 03/23/15 by STiFFKiTTY STiFFKiTTY

A: I don't think its time to retire Brees on draft day. It is time to temper our expectations of Brees for next season though. The team wants to shave roughly 5 passing attempts a game off him which would put him at the cusp of top 10 attempts rather than at the top. C.J. Spiller is an upgrade as a receiver over Thomas, yet not as consistent on a week to week basis and more of an injury risk. We have Brees currently ranked as our 6th quarterback and I would bet good money that he will end up between 5-9 among QBs in terms of fantasy points barring injury. This could end up having a Tony Romo like effect on Brees where his efficiency numbers go through the roof allowing him to reduce the number of interceptions while using the play action game to his benefit more. As for Eli we have him just behind Brees at the moment, currently 7th among quarterbacks. Answered 03/25/15 by Stagg Party

Q: Hey guys. Sorry about too little information on my previous question. I'm in a auction league. And the stipulation is that my keeper costs $20 against my 200 draft budget. Beckham vs Julio is a hard choice. But the bargain to keep either one of them is awesome Asked 02/28/15 by Ray Boudreaux

A: No worries. As I said before Ray it's splitting hairs. Personally I would be more upset if I let ODB walk and he blows up again. Plus Julio seems like a player you are more likely to get on draft day as ODB's auction price could go through the roof! Answered 02/28/15 by Stagg Party
