Looking ahead to the 2013 NFL season, Matt Vensel over the next few days will break down the five Ravens players worth drafting in your fantasy league and when you should draft them. Though they are worth picking up , he did not include the Baltimore D/ST or kicker Justin Tucker because they should go in the final two rounds. Only once in Joe Flacco's first five seasons in the NFL has the quarterback ranked among the top 10 players at his position in total fantasy points scored, according to NFL.com's scoring, and that came in 2010 when Flacco barely edged out New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning for 10th on the list.

World events over the last month or so have proven that we do have a very creditable terrorist threat, not only to the Middle East, but to Europe and the U.S. As this is the start of the NFL season and all the fantasy leagues are in full force, I would like to recommend a World Leader Fantasy League. As we already have a World Leader team in place, I propose trading our current world leader, President Barack Obama, for Great Britain's Prime Minister David Cameron. Last week demonstrated that Mr. Obama is not up to the task.

If Peter Angelos is looking for a new general manager, Calvin Bowman has a deal for him. "Just give me four years, Mr. Angelos," Bowman said yesterday. "I'll bring the fans back." That sounds great, except for one question: Who the heck is Calvin Bowman? Bowman is a 25-year-old Towson University graduate who works in the college's alumni relations department and dreams of becoming a baseball executive ... a dream that seemed to be within reach a few months ago when he made the finals of the Yahoo!

Though they are worth picking up, he did not include the Baltimore D/ST or kicker Justin Tucker because they should go in the final two rounds . The Ravens liked Bernard Pierce so much coming out of Temple, they traded up in the third round of the 2012 NFL draft to select him. He might have exceeded their early expectations for him in his rookie season.

When Jamie Hovey got a text message about the death of actor Heath Ledger, he quickly went to the Internet. Moments later, the 29-year-old Columbia resident was distraught. It wasn't because the entertainment world had suffered the loss of a rising star. Hovey was dismayed because he discovered someone else had claimed Ledger in his celebrity fantasy league. Hovey is part of the growing number of entertainment world fans who take part in the leagues, which operate like the more established fantasy sports leagues.

Oh Joe. This isn't good. You made a big, big statement on Tuesday and folks, well, they're kinda laughing themselves silly at you. You're the BEST quarterback in the NFL? Says you? "I assume everybody thinks they're a top-five quarterback," Flacco told Baltimore's WNST 1570. "I mean, I think I'm the best. I don't think I'm top five, I think I'm the best. I don't think I'd be very successful at my job if I didn't feel that way. I mean, c'mon? That's not really too tough of a question.

As the baseball season gets under way, tens of thousands of team owners across the country are poring over major league rosters, measuring their bank accounts against million-dollar salaries, and getting ready for the big decisions that will make them champs or chumps come the fall.While the uninitiated may sneer at this manic display of hope sprung eternal, rotisserie and fantasy league managers are serious about investing their time, money and egos in the best teams their imaginations can buy.As the season wears on, they'll live and die by the Monday statistics that tell them whether their drafting skill has paid off. They'll wheel and deal, trade and barter, and generally bore everyone else to death with their baseball chatter.

Torrey Smith torched the Rams in Week 3, catching five passes for 152 yards and three touchdowns. Now he is burning up the waiver wire, and you can be sure that someone will claim him in your fantasy league. I got a text message shortly after midnight early Monday morning from a friend from Pittsburgh who wanted to know what the deal was with Smith so he could put in a waiver claim. It wasn't hard, but I convinced the Steelers fan to drop Hines Wards for Smith (of course, only a Steelers fan would own Ward at this point)

Carson Palmer will be a hot commodity on the waiver wire this week after the Cincinnati Bengals traded him to the Oakland Raiders for a pair of high draft picks. I can't imagine that someone in your fantasy league already has Palmer on his or her roster -- unless you're in a league with Mike Brown, who finally made a deal Tuesday. So what's his fantasy value? At the very least, he should be as productive as Raiders quarterback Jason Campbell, who suffered a broken collarbone Sunday, an injury that set the gears in motion for a deal.

The Orioles put an interesting spin on how they decided the draft order for their annual team fantasy football draft this past weekend - with the help of some Maryland blue crabs. Reliever Darren O'Day wanted to do something more exciting than just picking names out of a hat. At first, O'Day was thinking about having a snail race, but he soon found out snails aren't that easy to purchase. “It's hard to buy them,” O'Day said of the snails. “I was looking out looking in the garden, and I looked down in the harbor because I live right down by the water and I saw crabs everywhere.

Chances are a running back will be the first player to come off the board in your fantasy league unless one of your fellow owners has a serious crush on Michael Vick or is the father/mother/sibling/spouse of a current NFL player. Running backs no longer the first dozen players off the board in fantasy football -- and honestly, that makes things much more interesting -- but an elite back is still the way to go if you're picking first overall. So who should you take with the first pick?
