A friend and I did a Marvel fantasy football draft. Would love to get your input/criticisms on the teams, what you like, who you think would win a game between these two squads, and to hear you b**** about who we left out. To narrow our focus just a bit we only chose from the Marvel universe.

Here are the two teams. I will reveal later on in the thread what team I drafted:

Team A

WR1: Miles Morales Spider-Man
WR2: Nova
WR3: Domino
TE1: Luke Cage
TE2: Sabretooth
LT: Venom
LG: Red Hulk
C: Taskmaster
RG: She Hulk
RT: Rhino

DE: Ms. Marvel
DT: Drax
DT: Amadeus Cho Hulk
DE: Hercules
OLB: Sentry
OLB: Black Bolt
MLB: The Thing
CB: Gorgon
FS: Nightcrawler
SS: Iron Man
CB: Karnak
Nickel CB: Black Panther
Misc D: Hyperion

K: Longshot

Team B
QB: Captain America
RB: Quicksilver
FB: Cannonball
WR1: Silver Surfer
WR2: Magik
WR3: Invisible Woman
TE1: Cable
TE2: Mr. Fantastic
LT: Colossus
LG: Vision
C: Mimic
RG: Blob
RT: Sasquatch

DE: Hulk
DT: Wolverine
DT: Juggernaut
DE: Beta Ray Bill

Team B. Cap at QB and Quicksilver at RB? That's a win. Not sure about Daredevil at CB. Or Wolverine at DT. What's his 40?

Additional rules I didn't mention'. We did not include any eternals or uber powerful characters that could shut the other team down on a whim (professor X, magneto, Jean grey). Also teleporters can only teleport once per play.

That's all. You see, this is what I get bored and do in the damn offseason!

Spiderman as a FB? That's odd.

Team A with Hawkeye probably gives them the edge, but the Defense on Team B is basically all my favorite characters

By the way it should be heroes vs villains. Bullseye as QB.

And yeah, this is literally the nerdiest thread ever.

Who was the first overall pick?? I feel like whoever has the Hulk gets the easy win.

Should do a Marvel vs DC. I feel the Flash would be a pretty good slot WR.

Think you need to switch Hulk and Wolverine for their position. Hulk and Juggernaut clogging up the middle would be a killer D-Line.

Also see Sabretooth way more as a Defensive player than a TE, dude is ferocious.

I'm pretty sure Team B handing the ball to Quicksilver every play basically gives them the W

I have team B with Cap and Quicksilver. Also, thinking of switching to a 3-4 and moving Wolverine to ILB with Beast.

That was my first thought. Why not just have Hulk be your team?

Second thought was if no Kryptonite, then Superman could be the other team. He can just fly for touchdowns... plus he mightbe able to catch the Hulk's kickoffs before they travel a few miles out of the stadium.

Third thought was that Bellichec would coach Hulk's team and he'd sneak kryptonite into the balls.

So really, no one should play against the Hulk. Although he'd just rampage the stadium and would get lots of penalties.

Wouldn't night crawler just teleport to the endzone every play for a Td if he was qb?

Don't Underestimate less popular guys like Hercules, they give Hulk a run for his money. Also, if this is classic hulk, he's pretty stupid and uncontrollable. Good luck avoiding penalties.

Yeah, a lot of players out of position. It'd be like putting Detha O'neal at wr.

Rhino is no RT. He and Juggernaut are the original FBs.

Spiderman is no FB. WR would be better fit. Could bring in any overthrown ball.

Same reason Mr Fantastic would be a better fit here than TE. He's not blocking anyone.

And, agree with poster suggesting Bullseye (or Deadshot) at QB. Talent wasted at kicker.

With that said...

Who's going to hope to cover Invisible Woman at WR3?

Also, does Mr. Fantastic have to keep all of his limbs onside, or can he stretch his arms into the end-zone before the snap?

Beast is the Mike Singletary of MLBs. Cerebral, I like it.

Nightcrawler seems like more of a CB, but I guess you're wanting his one teleport to be able to keep the whole field of play in mind?

This is stupid. The truth is, none of us can sit here and predict what the better team is before training camp has even started. Let's revisit at the end of the season...

I see JCM was shrewd enough to draft Daredevil, the only person who could have locked her down!
