    Since my only reason for following the NFL is for Fantasy Football purposes I thought I would start a thread discussing it from a Caste Football perspective. I have created a league of 4 teams and stocked one of them exclusively with white players. We can see how "our" guys do against the rest of the league.

    I'll be able to use screenshots which will make it quicker, and since I am lazy, easier.

    Last week was the first week I had it set up properly. As you can see from the screenshots the "Mighty Whities" handily defeated the Ghanian Giants. As with any fantasy football getting lucky with the starters is key.

    None of the teams uses a defense, as most are mixed to some degree, and only the Mighty Whities have a kicker as I do not believe there are any black kickers in the league.

    Last week:

    Here's the bench for these teams. One of the problems is some random black player goes off every week, Keenan Allen or Mike Evans last week, Sammy Watkins before. If you don't have him in the line-up you're screwed. In the same way every week some random white QB goes off, last week it was Daniel Jones. And you can't carry every white QB and you only play one. So maybe it balances.

    You could total up the best scores from each side however that greatly disadvantages the Whities as there are so many black players in comparison. I also don't think the Whities are going to win much unless CMAC keeps playing so well. There is only one other white back worth using, Rex Burkhead and his ceiling is limited.

    As a comparison here is the box from the other game. The Bantu Bushman defeated the Zulu Warriors in a real battle. I think home field is important for the Bushman.

    In my league I have Matt Ryan as starting QB, Kupp and Thielen as two of my receivers, Vance MacDonald as my TE, who I replaced with Hockenson this week, and Blake Martinez as my one defender. I am 2-1 and in 2nd place out of ten in my league, and my team is the whitest in the league, by far. Not counting kickers, I have 5 white starters, out of 9 players, and the most any other team has is 3, and that's only one team. Most teams have only 1 or 2 white starters, and one has zero!

    If I win this league, it will be very satisfying from a caste perspective.

    The problem with having a real life Mighty Whitey team is Chris Mcafferty is now a top pick and what fun is it without him? One league I was in he went #2 - I was picking 3rd. Then some guy took Theilan and Kupp on consecutive picks at the turn. Dang!

    McCaffrey was the 3rd player drafted in my league. The team he's on doesn't have any other white starters, except the kicker.

    I snagged McCaffrey with the #3 pick. In the second round Thielen was taken a couple picks before my turn, but I got Kupp. Edelman was snatched up by someone else too; Super Bowl MVP makes a Mighty Whitey even for DWFs. I got Burkhead in a late round.

    The moron who drafted Antonio Brown failed to take the TNB factor into account.

    Well I screwed up this week and forgot to adjust the line-ups for the bye week. This put the Zulu Warriors at a disadvantage vs. the Mighty Whities. I need to find a replacement for Cam Newton. Who's the best option? Lamarr Jackson, Dak Prescott, Russell Wilson? I also forgot a TE or kicker for the Mighty Whities. So maybe it balanced out. Here's the box score.

    Exact same thing happened to me. I was picking third and was expecting Mccaffery to fall to me but Zeke started the contract holdout so the guy above me took CMC instead. I was gutted. I knew CMC would have a great season and he's the RB1 in most fantasy football leagues including mine. I'm 2-2 and would be 4-0 if I'd gotten CMC over Elliot. At least Rex Burkhead helped me win my matchup last week but I'm very annoyed I don't have Christian in either of my fantasy leagues.

    ESPN messed with people ranking CMAC as far down as 5 in some of their preseason predictions. But at draft time he was #2 so everyone that was clueless or auto picking got him.

    So the leading rusher in the NFL is a White guy, imagine if the leading NHL scorer was black! Think that would be a topic of discussion?

    I could use some advice this week. The Mighty Whities have a tough matchup with the Bantu Bushman who are favored. I'm sticking with Rodgers at QB as he is a steady performer but Carson Wentz is waiting in the wings, along with Brady and Rivers. Matt Stafford is off to a good start but he's on a bye. I'm hoping Julian Edelman returns with a bang, the lackluster game the Pats played last week is almost certain to earn him more touches. Kittle, Ertz, and Olsen, are also possible plays.

    I didn't do an update last week for the Mighty Whities, mainly because I don't think anyone cares, but they did manage to win big and remain undefeated. Fortunately CMAC had a monster week and made up for Burkheads goose egg.

    Anyone have an idea for a 2nd starting back for the Mighty Whities? I'm not sure if any other White RB's in the NFL score points except in a rare freak occurrence.

    I think I might start Phillip Lindsay as an honorable Whitey. Whaddaya think?
    C'mon this guy could pass as a White guy couldn't he? John Riggins had the same hair! If it was 1947 he could have played on the St. Louis Cardinals.

    Hope Zenner signs while Burkhead is out. Or sign Patrick Laird and hope he breaks into the rotation....

    I did something like this in daily fantasy last week so I was able to select whoever I wanted. When Burkhead was ruled out, I just chose a different (non-white) RB that had a similar salary (Gore). My white lineup outscored my all black lineup 181-104.

    I would say as long as the team is majority white, just go with the best RB on the waver wire.

    The Mighty Whities continued to crush their enemies and enjoy the lamentations of their imaginary women. On tap, the undefeated Beige Bombers will entertain the last place Zulu Warriors. This week they will not have superstar Christian McCafferty anchoring their line up. He will be replaced by honorary "whitey" Phillip Lindsay. I'm keeping an eye on recently signed Zack Zenner who has not appeared as an option in my league yet. I am also not using a kicker as this seems an unfair advantage although it has not been the difference in any game. Also Matt Ryan has earned the start over A.A. Ron Rodgers-who is listed as questionable.

    Last weeks box.

    That's a good idea but I'm trying to keep it as black/white as possible. Just to see how it might go. I like gimmick fantasy football teams, I once had a team with mostly Johnson's, Jones, and Jackson's.

    The Mighty Whities are coming off their first two loses of the season. Mainly due to their head coach not properly filling the bye week spots and also the inexplicable decision to start Matt Ryan. However the line-up is set, Rodgers is back behind center, and Cole Beasely is stepping in for Kupp this week.

    What are the thoughts about Erickson on Cincy. He looks to be a starter now and has had a couple of good games. After the big 3 of Theilan, Kupp, and Edelman, there are really no White WR's you can count on week to week. Amendola has a good game every few, Humphries not getting the targets. Beasely is the only other one that puts up some points each week.

    C-Mac, the mightiest of the Mighty Whities, with 166 total yards and 3 TDs this week providing a big boost to anyone who has him.

    I could use some advice from the forum.

    Having trouble deciding who to go with at my Flex spot. Gesicki, Renfrow, or Beasley?

    Tempted to go with Beasley because I have Josh Allen as my QB. Right now I've got Gesicki in, but not sure what Tua and Fins will do.

    Renfrow is also an intriguing option.

    I'd go Gesicki, Renfrow than Beasley.

    If Fitz is the QB Gesicki will have a big year. Renfrow seems to have Carr's trust but won't be the first target. Beasley is somewhat the same - he will be a reliable security valve for Allen.

    Appreciate the input. I'll stick with Gesicki for now, I think he's due for a breakout!

    I have managed to avoid the NFL on TV for the most part this year but am still playing in two Fantasy Leagues. One, run by my main man Don W., I didn't want to leave hanging, and the other a long time social league that I am staying in for familial reasons. Years ago I was in a Fantasy NASCAR league which was a lot of fun. NASCAR has one event a week and everyone scores at the same time. I never watched a single NASCAR race as I am not a fan but still enjoyed the Fantasy league. I figure I can do the same for football.

    Mighty Whities 2020

    In my one fantasy league I figured I would stock my team with all, or nearly all, White players. Doing that is a problem because, of course, not enough running backs. This year especially you weren't going to get CMAC unless you drafted first. He was the first pick in probably every draft in the country. I did not pick first. In fact I had the last pick in a 12 team league. That actually worked out okay, because by pick 12 (and 13-it was a snake draft) there wouldn't be any black RB that you had to draft to stay competitive, and I would say it's also a time in the league where there are not a bunch of dominant black receivers. But it was also too soon for any normie to draft a White player so it worked out for me. I drafted Travis Kelce and Adam Theilen with my first two picks. My plan was to draft Kittle and Cupp the next time around but to my surprise someone took Kittle. So I took Gronkowski and Cupp.

    I was hoping for the old Gronk. That hasn't happened yet but I was fortunate to miss on Kittle as he has been hurt.

    After that it was clear sailing because there were no white skill players that were going to be taken until very late, as I had my allotment of TE's and that is the only position that is "deep" in White players.

    I also quickly grabbed Aaron Rodgers as he is a Fantasy monster and I knew I was going to need him as I did not have a RB yet. There was very little left so I took the best 2 black RB's left.

    It was easy to get Burkhead, and Edelman-who still gets drafted mid rounds. I also took Phillip Lindsay who (as I said in a post above) I consider an "honorary" White guy. He is the spittin' image of my best friend from high school whom I'm pretty certain was White as rice.

    The down roster White receivers were tricky. There actually are a few to pick from. Cole Beasely and Danny Amendola were my picks but they have been spotty in production this year. I was hoping for Renfrew and Isabella to rise as fantasy players. I didn't expect it to happen in the same week so I was only able to nab one of them this waiver period.

    I picked up Scotty Miller when Don made a mention of him as a sleeper guy. He didn't do much at first but he is still a guy that can be rostered. I'm hoping that Braxton Berrios or Adam Humphries, or Chris Hogan, or even Justin Watson come around and start putting up regular points.

    So Scott Miller let me down again. I figured Brady, the Bears, Thursday night, injured teammates. So what happened? Nothing. Nada. Zero. So I'm basically screwed for the week. I earlier mentioned that I missed out on Kittle and got Gronk instead. With Kittle getting injured I thought I was lucky. Nope. Kittle came back with a bang putting up 40 points.

    This week with Lindsay back in the line-up and Burkhead in a position to get some real touches (he probably won't) my full line up is all players lighter then Sherwin Williams beige #6.

    My Mighty Whities are 3-1 so far.
