Sharknado’s Revenge: UPDATED Top 51 Players for the 2013 Fantasy Football Draft



Amazingly, the Sharknado craze has not gone away.





Not only have subsequent airings been more and more popular on SyFy, but, believe it or not, Sharknado went TO THE THEATERS! I don’t think I’ve ever seen that happen before, but yes, Sharknado actually went from made-for-television afterthought to box office hit. If you weren’t aware, they sold out midnight showings of Sharknado on about 200 screens in New York, Boston and Seattle just this past weekend. Don’t know what that says about people who live in New York, Boston and Seattle, but it can’t be good. I’m also not exactly sure why it wasn’t shown in Los Angeles, the actual location of the movie, except perhaps it was too disturbing for people in LA to visualize sharks falling out of the sky in their home city on the big screen. After all, it’s traumatic enough just to think about this happening -- we wouldn’t want to make this scenario seem more “real” by visualizing it on the big screen, would we? And in further news, the famous Irish singing duo Jedward (what?) will be in the second film. From what I gather, unless you’re from the UK, you have no idea who this is. They can’t be that important, though, since they were apparently notified by Tara Reid by Twitter that they were in the movie. That’s Tara Reid we’re talking about, who hasn’t even committed to being in the sequel herself yet, at least until she’s had a chance to read the “script.” Really? We need a script for this? It’s not enough to just know that you have to run around a set and act scared about sharks falling from the sky? But I digress.



Now that I’ve updated you all on Sharknado, it’s time to update my rankings for the 2013 fantasy football draft. Camp is in full swing and preseason games have begun. You’ll see that players moving up are in green, players moving down are in red and players new to the list are in green italics.





Dropping off the list are Percy Harvin, whose injury is likely to keep him out at least the first 13 weeks, and Rob Gronkowski, who is likely to start the season on the PUP list, both according to recent reports. With Gronk going down, Jimmy Graham becomes a class of his own with regard to tight ends. And of course Arian Foster’s injury and injury history are starting to make me a little queasy, plus rumors of increased workloads for Trent Richardson, Montee Ball and Eddie Lacy have me moving their stock up. You also note newcomers Robert Griffin III and Le’Veon Bell. RGIII is looking strong and may be making an AP type come back from knee surgery, while Bell is already looking to be nicknamed “The Bell Cow” when he beats out deadbeats Jonathan Dwyer and Isaac Redman for the starting job in Steel town. And yes, although people have mentioned it before, I just made that nickname up. No one actually calls him “The Bell Cow”. Until 2 months from now, of course. Then everyone is going to be saying it.
