DETROIT (97.1 The Ticket) When your fantasy football quarterback options are the Saints’ Drew Brees and the Lions’ Matt Stafford, 97.1 The Ticket’s Mike Valenti said Stafford is the best bet.
Valenti unveiled his complete fantasy football draft list at this weekend Fantasy Football Convention in Royal Oak, complete with his choices for quarterback, rookie, sleeper hits and total busts. See the list HERE.
“Stafford’s right in the mix,” Valenti said. “You have to keep Rogers and Brady there but I think if you said ‘OK, who’s going to throw for more yards this year, Brees or Stafford?’ I’d take Stafford.”
As for rookies, Valenti said Andrew Luck is a better bet than Robert Griffin III.
“Who’s more ready to play right now? Who’s more ready to call an offense?” Valenti said. ‘Who’s used to that? It’s Luck … You can play Luck this year.”
Griffin has a problem, and it’s the rest of his Redskins team. “That’s a really nasty football team in Washington … Who does Washington have? Fred Davis? That’s what you’re bringing to the table?” Valenti said.
