Fantasy football is back and with it comes a crop of new names such as Browns RB Trent Richardson and Colts QB Andrew Luck.
It also brings with it a bumper crop of other newbies with names like Louieās Lizards, Buccaneer Bruisers and Show Me Da Money.
The latter group will probably get invited to join a fantasy league at work, through a friend or simply because they were the first person that was encountered by a league commissioner that was desperately grasping at straws for one last odd to make an even in a 10 team league.
If you are in that group, understand this no one expects you to do well. They will be happy if you set your roster consistently to keep things on the up and up.
This is by no means an ultimate guide to winning as you need to understand much more than what follows to get you the copper-plated trophy with the $50 stuffed in it, but these simple ideals can keep you from getting laughed at.

RESPECT YOUR ELDERS
Jim Brown has been critical of Trent Richardson's abilities since he was drafted, and the Browns running back has responded.
Andrew Luck is keeping his focus on football.
He'll let others worry about his new contract.
The No. 1 overall draft pick says that even though he cannot attend training camp until he signs a deal, he is not worried about the lack of one becoming an impediment for reporting to training camp. The Colts report to Anderson University, an NCAA Division III school about 30 miles...
Before the new collective bargaining agreement put in place after the lockout ended last year, you would usually see the top pick in the draft sign his deal and then we would work our way down after the market had been set. But with the new deal in place, weāre seeing that things are going to be quite different.
17 of the first 32 picks in the draft have come to terms or signed...
INDIANAPOLIS -- Bruce Arians, the Indianapolis Colts' new offensive coordinator, is certainly no stranger when it comes to tutoring and developing young, highly talented young quarterbacks. Arians was the Colts' quarterbacks coach in 1998 when the team drafted eventual franchise icon Peyton Manning with the first overall pick of the National Football League draft. He was...
I laugh at the situation. You donāt know me from spic to span. But heās Jim Brown. Heās done a lot here and I havenāt done anything yet. I have a lot to accomplish and big shoes to fill. When it comes down to it, I have to work and make sure I make him a believer. I havenāt done anything yet. HeĀ has his own thoughts. Thatās him being him.Ā I have no problem with it...
The Indianapolis Colts have signed No. 1 overall pick Andrew Luck.
The quarterback's agent and uncle, Will Wilson, confirmed Thursday that the deal had been completed. Terms were not immediately released.
Colts owner Jim Irsay told reporters in late April he expected Luck's deal would be almost identical to the four-year, $22 million contract last year's top pick, Cam...
TAKE YOUR PICK
Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III were taken 1-2 in the NFL draft, but Brett Favre knows who he would pick between the two QBs.
Jim Brown has never been shy about giving his opinion, and he most certainly hasn't been shy about voicing his reservations with the Browns' 2012 first round pick, Trent Richardson.
Richardson isn't one to back down either, telling ESPN's Jamison Hensley, "He has his own thoughts. Thatās him being him,ā Richardson said. āI have no problem with it. I just...
Jim Brown, the greatest running back in Cleveland Browns and arguably NFL history, has expressed on two occasions that he does not think highly of Trent Richardson, who was drafted third overall by the team in April.
Richardson finally responded to Brownās criticism.
āHe has his own thoughts. Thatās him being him,ā Richardson said earlier this month, according to ESPNā...
One of the stumbling blocks in negotiations between Indianapolis and the top overall choice in the draft, Len Pasquarelli of the Sports Xchange reports, is the proposed inclusion of marketing language that Luck and his representatives, at least so far, regard as strident. One source with knowledge of the talks even suggested that Luck would "have to clear" marketing proposals...
Admittedly, most running backs pale in comparison to the legendary Jim Brown, a fact that is assumedly not lost on the man himself. But he has seemingly gone out of his way to criticize Trent Richardson, the Browns' fourth overall pick this year, all throughout the offseason. Richardson, however, has decided to take the high road and just laugh the criticisms off, according to...
Cleveland Browns running back Trent Richardson is out to prove former Browns great Jim Brown wrong, after he called him an āordinaryā running backĀ after this yearās draft.
āI laugh at the situation,ā RichardsonĀ told ESPN.com. āYou donāt know me from spic to span. But heās Jim Brown. Heās done a lot here and I havenāt done anything yet. I have a...
As the greatest running back in NFL history, Jim Brown perhaps has an unreasonably high standard for excellence. Just before April's draft, the Cleveland BrownsĀ legend was bold enough to say Trent RichardsonĀwhom his former team ended up selecting No. 3 overallĀhad "ordinary" talent for the position. Given a chance to fire back a bit at the franchise legend via...
