    Training Camp - Offense Vs. Defense

    It certainly appears that the defense is getting the overall best of it against the number 1 offense in the league.

    I read somewhere that Peyton Manning was getting on the D at some early point in 11 on 11s - to mount a better pass rush - that they were not going full speed. I think that Peyton Manning the way he is - has made sure - that he can practice against the mad rush physical defense -and that's what he is getting for the most part.

    One thing that happened to the Bronco offense in the alleged Super Bowl was its timing was disrupted - either on the receivers going down field, or on the Manning having less time to release the ball. What better way to defeat that tactic than to practice against it? Good on Peyton Manning for demanding it.

    Apparently that's what all the fantasy drafters are thinking. I've seen Ball going from 5-8 consistently.

    I think Ball will be more valuable in the a points for reception league - still I wouldn't go top 8.

    Right now I would not either. Maybe after the pre-season.

    Sleeper D? Most rankings have them consistently as #2. You may have to select them in top 8 rounds of your two drafts we are in if you really want them.

    And since LGM is in both those leagues, they still may not be soon enough!

    Why would I need to check the rankings -I know who I want.

    Yes but, that doesn't mean the CIA hasn't worked for me - a time or two. ;)

    ADP is 90. That's not exactly flying high.
