16 Entertaining Fantasy Football Quotes From The DS Projections Party

By Jared Smola | Updated on Tue, 23 May 2023 . 1:27 PM EDT

Whenever you have five crazy smart, very opinionated, sometimes funny, shamelessly obsessed fantasy football writers in one room, the conversations are bound to be intense - and fairly entertaining.

If you want to dial it up a notch, just tell those fantasy football writers that no one can leave the room until they've all (sort of) unanimously agreed on preseason rankings and projections. It's great fun, also known as our official Projections Party.

As the guys hashed it out that day, I made sure to note a few of the more memorable one-liners and exchanges that went down. The player projections you're all chomping at the bit for will be released in just a couple weeks.  In the meantime, I thought you might get a kick out of my notes.

Here’s hoping you enjoy them as much as I did.
