2018 DFF Battle of the Sexes

We are back for a 2nd year! After the male team took the spoils winning 5-4 last year, the ladies have come back for revenge. https://dynastyfootballfactory.com/battle-of-the-sexes-2017-the-results/

This year, the competition will work a little differently. We have trimmed each team’s roster down to seven people and the whole format has completely changed.

This year’s competitors are:

#TeamDFF (Male)

James Hanmore (@DFF_JamesH)

Shane Manila (@DFF_Shane)

Christipher Bean (@ChristipherBean)

Addison Hayes (@amazehayes_)

John Di Bari (@dibari22)

Matt Walker (@DFF_Walk)

Jeremy Browand (@DFF_Madman)

#WeDemGirls (Female)

Liz Loza (@LizLoza_FF)

Allie Fontana (@AllieFontana)

Lisa London (@leedoglaw)

Jennifer Eakins (@themondaymommy)

Brandon Marianne Lee (@BrandonHerFFB)

Jen Smith (@TheOnlyJenSmith)

Giana Pacinelli (@Gianaaaa)

How it will work:

So last year, the women were asked to make a bold prediction and explain why – it was up to the men to argue that point. This year we are going in a different direction. Each person will pick their own fantasy football rosters. Sounds easy, right? Wrong. Every player position has certain stipulations attached to them, limiting who the competitors can play at each position.

These stipulations are:

QB – Played seven or less games last year for the team he currently plays for (So if he is now at a new team then he is eligible)

RB – On a new team this year (But cannot be a rookie)

RB – A rookie that was not taken in the 1st round.

WR – Had less than 700 receiving yards last season.

WR – A rookie who was taken in the 4th round or later.

TE – Any TE that finished inside of the top 5 TEs (fantasy points) during the last two seasons are NOT eligible.

Competitors can only change their player selections if players are injured before the season begins. For in-season injuries, team owners cannot change players. This is not designed around weekly matchups either; it will be based on one matchup for each team, head-to-head all season long, with total standard-scoring fantasy points at the end of the NFL regular season determining the victor!

The draw:

The draw was pulled out of a hat live on Twitter (to ensure there were no shenanigans) and some interesting matchups came out.

The draw is as follows:

Allie Fontana (@AllieFontana) vs Addison Hayes (@amazehayes_)

Giana Pacinelli (@Gianaaaa) vs Jeremy Browand (@DFF_Madman)

Jen Smith (@TheOnlyJenSmith) vs Matt Walker (@DFF_Walk)

Lisa London (@leedoglaw) vs Christipher Bean (@ChristipherBean)

Liz Loza (@LizLoza_FF) vs John Di Bari (@dibari22)

Jennifer Eakins (@themondaymommy) vs James Hanmore (@DFF_JamesH)

Brandon Marianne Lee (@BrandonHerFFB) vs Shane Manila (@DFF_Shane)

The matchups:

Allie Fontana (@AllieFontana) vs Addison Hayes (@amazehayes_)

Allie

QB – Aaron Rodgers

RB – Carlos Hyde

RB – Royce Freeman

WR – Odell Beckham Jr

WR – Keke Coutee

TE – Trey Burton

Addison

QB – Aaron Rodgers

RB – Dion Lewis

RB – Royce Freeman

WR – Odell Beckham Jr

WR – Justin Watson

TE – Jack Doyle

Matchup note: A few different opinions here. I personally think this one will go to Allie, but time will tell!

Giana Pacinelli (@Gianaaaa) vs Jeremy Browand (@DFF_Madman)

Giana

QB – Aaron Rodgers

RB – Isaiah Crowell

RB – Royce Freeman

WR – Kevin White

WR – Keke Coutee

TE – Trey Burton

Jeremy

QB – Aaron Rodgers

RB – Carlos Hyde

RB – Royce Freeman

WR – Odell Beckham Jr W

R – Keke Coutee

TE – Cameron Brate

Matchup note: Giana becomes the first one to avoid Odell Beckham! A lot of duplicates in this one, but assuming OBJ stays healthy, you’ve got to be thinking Jeremy will take this one.

Jen Smith (@TheOnlyJenSmith) vs Matt Walker (@DFF_Walk)

Jen

QB – Kirk Cousins

RB – Dion Lewis

RB – Royce Freeman

WR – Odell Beckham Jr

WR – Keke Coutee

TE – Trey Burton

Matt

QB – Kirk Cousins

RB – Carlos Hyde

RB – Kerryon Johnson

WR – Odell Beckham Jr

WR – Keke Coutee

TE – Jordan Reed

Matchup note: This is one of the more boring matchups as only two positions are different. This just means it is going to be a close one come the end of the season.

Lisa London (@leedoglaw) vs Christipher Bean (@ChristipherBean)

Lisa

QB – DeShaun Watson

RB – Dion Lewis

RB – Royce Freeman

WR – Pierre Garcon

WR – Keke Coutee

TE – Austin Seferian-Jenkins

Christipher

QB – Deshaun Watson

RB – Dion Lewis

RB – Kalen Ballage

WR – Will Fuller V

WR – Jordan Lasley

TE – Jared Cook

Matchup note: A completely Odell-Beckham-free matchup which could have intriguing results. I think Lisa could take this one with one of my sleepers for the season in ASJ.

Liz Loza (@LizLoza_FF) vs John Di Bari (@dibari22)

Liz

QB – Aaron Rodgers

RB – Alfred Morris

RB – Kerryon Johnson

WR – Odell Beckham Jr

WR – Equanimeous St Brown

TE – Trey Burton

John

QB – Aaron Rodgers

RB – Legarrette Blount

RB – Royce Freeman

WR – Odell Beckham Jr

WR – DaeSean Hamilton

TE – David Njoku

Matchup note: I have literally no idea who will win this one. Some bold picks on both sides make for an interesting matchup.

Jennifer Eakins (@themondaymommy) vs James Hanmore (@DFF_JamesH)

Jen

QB – Aaron Rodgers

RB – Dion Lewis

RB – Nick Chubb

WR – Odell Beckham Jr

WR – Keke Coutee

TE – Trey Burton

James

QB – Kirk Cousins

RB – Carlos Hyde

RB – Ito Smith

WR – DeVante Parker

WR – Javon Wims

TE – David Njoku

Matchup note: I may be biased, but I am pretty sure I am going to win this by a landslide and nobody is going to change my mind. On a side note, myself and Jen have had a bet on this with the loser donating $20 to Fantasy Cares.

Brandon Marianne Lee (@BrandonHerFFB) vs Shane Manila (@DFF_Shane)

Brandon

QB – Aaron Rodgers

RB – Carlos Hyde

RB – Royce Freeman

WR – Odell Beckham

WR – Keke Coutee

TE – Trey Burton

Shane

QB – Kirk Cousins

RB – Carlos Hyde

RB – Royce Freeman

WR – Corey Davis

WR – Daurice Fountain

TE – Mike Gesicki

Matchup note: Both are really good teams and should be high-scoring. I think I prefer Shane’s team, but time will tell.

Thanks for reading and taking part in this year’s Battle of the Sexes. You will be able to vote on who you think will win each matchup by checking out my Twitter @DFF_JamesH. Good luck to all the competitors; we will check back at the end of the season to see who won!
