Team Preview: Deep Buttons
We continue to get closer and closer to the start of the NFL season. Today the NFL features its first preseason game. As NFL teams continue to make adjustments to their rosters, team owner, Logan Johnson continues to make moves of his own.
KFFL: Once again let me say congratulations on the new addition to your family.
LJ: Thanks, it certainly is a special moment. I look forward to getting her involved in fantasy football in 4 or 5 years from now.
KFFL: What were your thoughts on how your team performed in 2009?
LJ: Well I certainly thought I was going to do much better then finish outside of the playoffs. The last couple weeks of the season were interesting, I was right there on the bubble. Hopefully this year, I can be on the other side of that bubble.
KFFL: What are your thoughts on the activity in the league?
LJ: This offseason as been an absolute whirlwind. I am not a huge fun of the off-season movement. I have been a firm believer that once the season is over, you can’t make any more trades. On the flip side of that though, I have learned to deal with it and now I just have to play accordingly.
KFFL: For someone who doesn’t like the offseason trades, you did alright for yourself this summer.
LJ: Yeah I was able to work out a good deal with Matt Larson, I mean who doesn’t do deals with Larson. He tries to work deals with people who aren’t even in our league. Now going into the season I know I have some good keepers.
KKFL: Any idea on who you might be keeping this year?
LJ: Well I normally wouldn’t want to tell anyone who I am keeping, but I figure if my draft doesn’t go well, then I can always make deals with Josh Little. His team has pretty much been my farm team, so I have the ability to have a larger pool of players to choose from. In all seriousness though, I am probably looking at Peyton, Ray Rice, and either Colston or Marion Barber.
KFFL: What are you looking to go after in the early rounds of the 2010 draft?
LJ: Well because I swindled Josh to get not only my first round pick back, but to get HIS 2nd overall pick, now I will have the luxury of getting some good talent. I think it depends on which direction I go with my keepers, but at least I know I am going to get some very good talent.
KFFL: Are there any possible sleepers that you’re looking to take this year?
LJ: I am a big fan of the crappy Lions, but it is hard not to think about the potential of Matthew Stafford. He has some very good targets and I just don’t know if his offensive line can hold up.
KFFL: Which teams are you looking out for in 2010?
LJ: There are several teams that I want to beat. I am looking to beat Steel Curtain; he took that last playoff spot from me last year. I don’t worry much about Josh, I am not sure he has figured out how to play Fantasy Football yet. Then of course, I want to beat Larson. He puts so much effort into fantasy football, I just want to see him have a rough year.
KFFL: What sort of preparation do you do to prepare yourself for the upcoming 2010 draft?
LJ: I have a handful of websites that I check each day. Other than that, I take a lot of my advice from my wife.
