Fake Teams is teaming up with Comcast XFinity with this season long The Extra Point Series where we will take a look at two NFL players each week and ask you, the fantasy football owner, who will put up the best week from a fantasy perspective. With that said, we ask that you vote in the poll at the bottom of each article on a weekly basis.
This is a season long series pitting Fake Teams against other participating SB Nation football sites. We will keep track of your choices, and track which communities get it right. We'll also include a weekly standings update that shows where each community ranks in the overall competition. The winning community at the end of the year will receive a donation to a charity of their choice.
In Week 1, we are looking at two rookie quarterbacks making their very first NFL start:
Robert Griffin III vs New Orleans Saints
Andrew Luck vs Chicago Bears
Luck was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft last April, while RGIII was the 2011 Heisman Trophy winner and the second overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft. Luck has the potential to be a very good NFL quarterback as he ran an NFL style offense he ran at Stanford, while RGIII is the more athletic of the two who could wreak havoc on NFL defenses due to his arms and his legs. RG is a world class sprinter who has the ability to outrun most defensive players in the NFL.
Which rookie QB will throw the more RedZone touchdowns this Sunday in Week 1 of the 2012 NFL season? Please make sure your voices are heard by voting in the weekly poll.
