- 2013 Fantasy Football Season Recap - 

 

 

Another Fantasy Football Season has come and gone, here’s hoping you won it all. It was a blast writing about fantasy football and picking the players that could help and hurt your fake football team in 2013. It was a good year for the FANFOOD picks. A .615 winning percentage is something to be proud of, it even beats the percentage achieved by the Red Sox this year and bests the NFC North Champion Green Bay Packers. But enough back slapping, let’s recap the FANFOOD picks for your Championship Week FF Matchup and the fake football season. As always it’s followed by a great recipe, this time why don’t you try Pineapple Planked Flounder.

FANFOOD 3 IN/OUT Championship Week Recap

 

4 – Hits

0 – Misses

2013 Season: 67-42

 

 

 

 

HITS

 

Steven Jackson rushed 16 times for 53 yards and one touchdown in the Week 16 loss to the 49ers. Considering the defense he was going up against and the horrid offensive line Jackson has blocking for him, it was a very solid effort. Jackson continues to run hard and manages to find yards, even though the holes he gets are minuscule. He caught two passes out of the backfield for minus-four yards and was blown up twice on swing passes. One of those resulted in a questionable penalty on Donte Whitner that actually set up Jackson’s two-yard touchdown

 

Marques Colston caught five passes for 63 yards in New Orleans’ Week 16 loss to the Panthers. Colston was one of the few Saints to have a productive day as stormy weather and protection issues rendered New Orleans’ offense mortal. A different player since sitting out in Week 9 to nurse a knee injury, Colston has 42 catches for 534 yards over his past seven games.

 

Martellus Bennett had five catches for 85 yards in the Week 16 loss to the Eagles. He was targeted eight times, behind only Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery. Bennett nearly had a touchdown on a 30-yard catch in the third quarter, but was pushed out of bounds at the one-yard line. Despite averaging five catches and 66 yards over the past three weeks, Bennett hasn’t found the end-zone since Week 12. He’ll continue to play a major role in the short passing game for Week 17 against the Packers.

 

The Detroit Lions could have revived their playoff chances, but instead snuffed them out with an overtime loss to the woeful Giants. The Lions dropped themselves out of the NFC North race by losing last six games, but that is real football. The Lions DST actually scored you some points in their Fake Football Championship matchup with 2 sacks, a safety, an INT a fumble recovery and 105 return yards. While it wasn’t a ton of points, it was enough to make them a solid streamer if that was your plan.

Fake Football 2013 Season Recap

 

Each year, when it comes to re-draft leagues, the importance of Draft Day continues to dwindle. We all know that injuries happen, and players underperform, but if you drafted the likes of Trent Richardson, Ray Rice, Tom Brady, Roddy White and Wes Welker, you probably didn’t win it all. Though going into the season, you probably were talking trash.

 

This is why good work on the waiver wire is critical to winning it all and it is now apparent that being the first to pick up these players is what separates the winners and losers. This is why going forward, FANFOOD suggests ALL leagues adopt some form of Bidding System for Waiver Wire players.

 

Scroll down for a recap of these players you needed to GET.

 GET & FORGET – 2013 Waiver Wire Recap

 

Another fantasy football season concludes and the big winners this year were Peyton Manning, Josh Gordon, Jamaal Charles, and Jimmy Graham. With the exception of Gordon, all of the top performers were likely first or second round picks in fantasy leagues.

Gordon was a player who may have been on the waiver wire in a few fantasy leagues, but more likely was drafted in the mid-to-late rounds after enjoying a breakout rookie campaign that included 805 yards and five touchdowns in 2012.

While those players shined bright, there were also many busts this season. RGIII endured an ugly sophomore slump perhaps a result of his rushing back from a major knee injury. A Super Bowl champion a year ago, Ray Rice wasn’t even the best running back in the Ravens backfield this season. The Falcons had their wings clipped as a result of injuries to star receivers Julio Jones and Roddy White. Finally, at tight end, Rob Gronkowski was late to start and early to finish as a result of his injury woes.

 

Here are ALL the 2013 FANFOOD GET & FORGETs

 

PRESEASON :

QB | RB | WR | TE | DST | 30-Late |

RB Handcuffs |

 

SEASON:

 

| week 1 || week 5 || week 9 |week 13 |

| week 4 || week 8 || week 12 |week 16 |

 

 

Just as there were stars and busts, there were also several players who made their names as fantasy replacements this season. These players assumed starting slots in fantasy leagues and provided much-needed support throughout the season. While different Hidden Jewels shined bright on a week-to-week basis (at one point we all fell in love with Bobby Rainey and Peyton Hillis!), the following players offered the most value off the waiver wire in the 2013 NFL season.

 

Quarterbacks

 

Nick Foles, QB, Eagles

2,891 Passing Yards, 27 TD, 2 INT

221 Rushing Yards, 3 TD, 2 Fumbles Lost

The season started with Michael Vick at quarterback, but it was Nick Foles who gave the Eagles a hope of winning their conference. Foles enjoyed one of the greatest seasons in NFL history. In just 13 games he posted numbers that NFL quarterbacks dream about including a 30:4 Touchdown-to-Turnover ratio. While Foles will be most recognized for his incredible passing numbers, which includes 9.1 yards per pass attempt, it is also very impressive that he averaged 3.9 yards per carry and gathered 221 rushing yards. The quick-moving Eagles offense turned to Foles after Vick’s early injuries and struggles, and at just 25 years old once the 2014 season begins, Foles will be one of the most hyped quarterbacks in the NFL. There will be some critics who question whether it’s Foles or the Eagles system that is responsible for the impressive statistics. Regardless of what the system is, the 7.5:1 TD-to-TO ratio is enough to require even Cowboys fans to tip their cap to an incredible season.

Ryan Tannehill, QB, Dolphins

3,913 Passing Yards, 24 TD, 17 INT

238 Rushing Yards, 1 TD, 5 Fumbles Lost

Ryan Tannehill led the Dolphins into a position to reach the playoffs for the first time since 2008. Instead, the 2012 first round pick faltered in the final two weeks of the season in divisional losses against the Bills and Jets. In those two contests Tannehill managed just one touchdown compared to three interceptions. It’s difficult to put too much blame on Tannehill’s shoulders, as he managed to lead the ‘Phins to a .500 record despite losing two offensive linemen in-season in a bizarre bullying controversy. Regardless, Tannehill did look great at times, racking up 600 more passing yards than last season while doubling his touchdowns thrown. If he makes similar strides next season, Tannehill will rank amongst the top-10 quarterbacks in the NFL.

 

Running Backs

 

Joique Bell, RB, Lions

166 Carries, 650 Rushing Yards, 8 TD, 3 Fumbles

53 Receptions, 547 Yards

The addition of Reggie Bush helped the Lions early in the season, but the team’s biggest surprise in the backfield was certainly second-year running back Joique Bell. An undrafted running back out of Wayne State, Bell is a Michigan native who took home Player of the Year honors in Division II after racking 2,084 rushing yards and 29 touchdowns. After totaling 899 yards last season, Bell amassed 1,197 yards this season. While Bell is a dependable backup, averaging four yards per carry, he never did surpass 100 rushing yards in a game despite three contests with 20-plus carries. At the moment he is a valuable backup who similar to Saints star running back Darren Sproles, enjoys added value in Point Per Reception leagues.

Zac Stacy, RB, Rams

250 Carries, 973 Rushing Yards, 7 TD, 1 Fumble Lost

26 Receptions, 141 Yards, 1 TD

A fifth round pick out of Vanderbilt, Zac Stacy jumped over two other running backs this season to become the leading rusher in St. Louis. The compact 5’8”, 224 lbs. tailback scored seven touchdowns over the final eight games of the season, evolving as one of the most dependable running backs in fantasy football. Next year Stacy should be joined with some playmakers in the receiving corps that should offer the Rams offense a bit more balance, making life easier on the running game. Stacy is a certain star to remember for the 2014 fantasy football season.

Danny Woodhead, RB, Chargers

106 Rushes, 429 Rushing Yards, 2 TD, 2 Fumbles Lost

76 Receptions, 605 Receiving yards, 6 TD

It somehow went under the radar that Danny Woodhead left New England this off-season for San Diego. While the Patriots struggled at times due to a lack of playmakers, the Chargers were much-improved on offense. Woodhead provided Philip Rivers with a solid option and one of the most reliable sets of hands in the NFL, as Woodhead hauled in nearly 90% of passes thrown his way. This was the first time in his career that Woodhead racked up better than 1,000 total yards while also scoring a career-best eight touchdowns. Woodhead is as good as Darren Sproles, a player often drafted in the early to mid rounds in most fantasy leagues.

Andre Ellington, RB, Cardinals

118 Rushes, 652 Rushing Yards, 3 Touchdowns, 1 Fumble Lost

39 Receptions, 368 Receiving Yards, 1 Touchdown

The Cardinals did not make it to the playoffs, but there is still a lot of promise for the years ahead because of their rising playmaker Andre Ellington. A sixth round sleeper out of Clemson, Ellington was explosive offering better than five yards per carry and nine yards per reception. The Cardinals were wise limiting his playing time to keep him healthy, as he did endure some nicks and bruises along the season. On that note, Ellington may never be a star running back who gets the ball 25 times per game, but he can become a very efficient weapon utilized 10-15 times per game.

LeGarrette Blount, RB, Patriots

153 Rushes, 774 Rushing Yards, 7 TD, 2 Fumbles Lost

2 Receptions, 38 Yards

The season finale, which consisted of 189 rushing yards and two touchdowns was the exclamation point on a fine bounce back season for LeGarrette Blount. The Patriots went through their fair share of running backs including Stevan Ridley, Shane Vereen, and Brandon Bolden, but it was Blount who offered the most consistency and the best rewards. Blount averaged better than five yards per carry and scored more touchdowns than his 2010 rookie season in Tampa Bay when he was considered one of the best running backs in the league. Blount will likely play a crucial role in the Patriots playoff run, and as long as he doesn’t cough up a costly fumble, he should be a star in the backfield next season. Of course, you never do know what to expect from a Bill Belichick coached backfield.

 

Wide Receivers

 

Keenan Allen, WR, Chargers

71 Receptions, 1,046 Yards, 8 TD

A third round pick out of California, Keenan Allen is a favorite to win rookie of the year after his stellar debut. Allen was a key part of the Chargers return to the playoffs, as he hauled in five touchdowns over the final four games of the season, all wins. Allen had five games with 100-plus yards despite needing a few weeks to break into a prominent role on the depth chart. While Allen also handled some special teams punt return duties, there is no doubt that he established himself as the lead playmaker for the Chargers and will likely be an early draft pick in next year’s fantasy leagues.

Julian Edelman, WR, Patriots

105 Receptions, 1,056 Yards, 6 TD

When the Patriots brought in Danny Amendola, most fantasy football managers assumed he would take on Wes Welker’s role as the lead slot receiver. Those who paid closer attention to the Patriots would have recalled that last season it was actually Julian Edelman who started over Welker before an injury sidelined him. On that note, it was Edelman who picked up the lead slot receiver duties for the Patriots this season. By all accounts, Edelman was excellent as he led the team with 105 receptions and 1,056 yards.

Riley Cooper, WR, Eagles

47 Receptions, 835 Yards, 8 TD

It was certainly an inauspicious start to the season for Riley Cooper. He was called out as a racist when video surfaced featuring him using hate speech at a concert. If not for his teammate Michael Vick supporting him, Cooper may have been out of a job. Instead Vick stood by him, and it was Nick Foles who made him a star late in the season. Foles hooked up with Cooper for seven touchdowns and the duo enjoyed three games with 100-plus passing yards. Cooper hauled in a minimum of three receptions in each game during the second half of the season. At just 26 years old, Cooper could be a long-term answer for the Eagles in the receiving corps, and the rapport formed with Foles could make him a very valuable player once again in 2014.

Marvin Jones, WR, Bengals

8 Rushes, 65 Yards

51 Receptions, 712 Yards, 10 TD

Marvin Jones did not attract much attention last season as a fifth round pick out of California. He hauled in 18 receptions for 201 yards with just one touchdown. Jones would have a more impressive stat-line in one game alone this season as he gave fits to the New York Jets by catching all eight passes thrown his way for 122 yards including four touchdowns. At 6’2”, 195 lbs., Jones has good size and athleticism, which made him an obvious red-zone target for Andy Dalton. On the year Jones finished with 10 touchdowns, just one shy of megastar AJ Green. With an average of 4.8 yards after catch, Jones proved to be a real weapon for the Bengals and he clearly fits in as a strong second threat next to Green.

Harry Douglas, WR, Falcons

85 Receptions, 1067 Yards, 2 TD

With Julio Jones and Roddy White hindered by injuries, veteran wide out Harry Douglas was forced to step up into a key role for the Falcons this season. Douglas went on to more than double his previous highs in receptions and yards. The tone was set very early, as Dougls racked up 93 yards in the season opener against the Saints before surpassing 120 yards on three different occasions throughout the season. Douglas was often considered a fourth option for Matt Ryan behind Jones, White, and Tony Gonzalez, however, it was Douglas who led the team with 85 catches and 1,067 yards. The one downfall for Douglas was his lack of touchdowns (2), however, that was the type of season it was for Atlanta’s offense. Don’t expect the 29-year-old to repeat his success next season. The return of a healthy Jones and White are bound to limit Douglas fantasy value even with Gonzalez expected to retire.

 

Tight Ends

 

Charles Clay, TE, Dolphins

7 Rushes, 15 Yards, 1 TD

69 Receptions, 759 Yards, 6 TD

A 6th round pick out of Tulsa in the 2011 draft, Charles Clay developed into a fantasy star this season as he became the top red zone option for Ryan Tannehill and the Dolphins. Clay secured 70% of passes thrown his way, and he saw 73 more passes thrown his way from a season ago. Clay got off to a blistering start with 40 or more yards in his first five games of the season. He slowed down a bit later in the season, but still established himself as one of the better tight ends in the NFL, which will allow the Dolphins to be creative next season with the talented tight end Dustin Keller likely to return from a devastating knee injury.

Delanie Walker, TE, Titans

60 Receptions, 571 Yards, 6 TD

When Delanie Walker signed with the Titans it was clear that he was going to be stepping out of Vernon Davis’ shadow in San Francisco, and that there would be some pressure to replace the capable Jared Cook in Tennessee. Walker managed to accomplish both this season as he established career highs with 60 grabs for 571 yards and six scores. Similar to Charles Clay in Miami, Walker is a former sixth round pick who has enjoyed a very successful NFL career.

Second Half Heros

 

Sticking with the Waiver Wire Theme, let’s pay homage to those fantasy football players who stepped up their game during the second half of the season.

FANFOOD TOP 10 By Position

 

 

Going into the 2013 Fake Football season, did you think that Andy Dalton would have scored the third most points? Or that Josh Gordon would score the most even after being suspended for the first 2 weeks? Here is how each of the skill positions ended up ranked 1-10.

 

Top 10 Fantasy Quarterbacks

 

1. Peyton Manning (496.8 points) — Manning CTRL+ALT+DLTed the record book and CTRL+Ved in his own new numbers.
2. Drew Brees (437.5 points) — There have been eight 5,000-yard seasons in NFL history. Half of them belong to Brees.
3. Andy Dalton (377.1 points) — Dalton was wildly inconsistent. He was a far more rewarding proposition in points-only leagues.
4. Matthew Stafford (367.8) — Stafford don’t need no stinkin’ QB “guru”! Ok, at least not for fantasy. Totaled only 49.9 points over his final four games.
5. Cam Newton (359.7 points) — Cam ran less than ever, but remained as productive as ever. That’s despite throwing to one of the league’s worst receiver corps.
6. Philip Rivers (359.1 points) — Revived like no one since John Travolta in “Pulp Fiction,” Rivers was nevertheless much quieter over the season’s second half.
7. Andrew Luck (345.2 points) — It’s remarkable Luck finished as high as he did considering his lack of weapons and Indy’s nearly nonexistent running game.
8. Ben Roethlisberger (341.0 points) — Roethlisberger appeared in all 16 games for the first time since 2008.
9. Matt Ryan (335.3 points) — Ryan wasn’t the same without Julio Jones, but didn’t fade into oblivion. This is his fantasy floor. That’s not bad.
10. Russell Wilson (331.8 points) — Wilson averaged 20.7 points on the year, but just 14.65 over his final four games. Still a stellar campaign for a sophomore.

 

 

Top 10 Fantasy Running Backs 

 

1. Jamaal Charles (312.1 points) — …And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Receptions And Touchdowns
2. LeSean McCoy (280.7 points) — Shady had 268 more rushing yards than anyone else, and 166 more yards from scrimmage.
3. Matt Forte (265.3 points) — An all-purpose animal who fit Marc Trestman’s offense like a custom-made Italian glove.
4. Marshawn Lynch (241.3 points) — Lynch seemed to wear out down the stretch, but his 14 total touchdowns were a new career high.
5. Knowshon Moreno (236.7 points) — Whatever McCoy thinks, Moreno brought the goods in one of 2013’s most unlikely breakout seasons.
6. Adrian Peterson (209.7 points) — AD rushed for 831 yards fewer than he did in 2012, and was still the league’s No. 5 back by yards.
7. Eddie Lacy (209.5 points) — Lacy averaged 23.3 touches per game after returning from his Week 2 concussion.
8. DeMarco Murray (207.2 points) — Once Murray got over his obligatory injury, he was the league’s fiercest runner, banging out 5.2 yards per carry.
9. Chris Johnson (202.2 points) — Getting here was as tedious as ever, but CJ?K refuses to let go of his RB1/2 value. Whether he maintains it in 2014 will depend on where he’s playing.
10. Reggie Bush (193.2 points) — Bush beat out a host of notable names despite missing two games with injury and withstanding multiple benchings for fumbling. He’ll remain on the RB1 fringe in 2014.

 

Top 10 Fantasy Receivers 

 

1. Josh Gordon (227.4 points) — Gordon led the league in receiving despite being suspended for Weeks 1 and 2 and catching his passes from Brandon Weeden, Jason Campbell and Brian Hoyer. Did I mention he won’t turn 23 until April?
2. Demaryius Thomas (227.0 points) — It’s all about the YAC, baby. No one had more of it in 2013.
3. Calvin Johnson (220.9 points) — Megatron’s latest top-three finish is all the more remarkable considering he missed two games and was severely limited in two others. A man without peer at his position.
4. A.J. Green (208.6 points) — Perhaps the most underrated superstar in all of football.
5. Dez Bryant (203.0 points) — Bryant has 25 touchdowns since the start of the 2012 season.
6. Brandon Marshall (201.5 points) — Marshall has now caught 100 passes in five of his eight NFL seasons. He’s averaging 98.8 catches since becoming a starter in 2007.
7. Antonio Brown (198.2 points) — Brown became the first player in league history to catch at least five passes for 50 yards in all 16 games.
8. Eric Decker (194.8 points) — Decker might get overpaid in free agency, but that’s missing the point. He’s going to get real paid.
9. Alshon Jeffery (194.6 points) — Remember when Jeffery was too fat?
10. DeSean Jackson (187.4 points) — As usual, D-Jax was boom-or-bust, but he boomed much bigger than in years past, while his valleys weren’t nearly as low as they were under Andy Reid.

 

Top 10 Fantasy Tight Ends

 

1. Jimmy Graham (217.5 points) — It was Graham and then everyone else.
2. Vernon Davis (163.0 points) — Davis’ 13 touchdowns were more than he scored in his first two seasons combined under Jim Harbaugh.
3. Julius Thomas (150.8 points) — Thomas caught at least three passes in every single game. He averaged 4.6 catches.
4. Jordan Cameron (133.7 points) — Cameron’s 917 yards were second only to Graham’s 1,215.
5. Jason Witten (133.1 points) — About to become the league’s tight end emeritus with Tony Gonzalez’s retirement.
6. Tony Gonzalez (132.7 points) — Gonzalez totaled 859 yards in his final NFL campaign. Gonzo was held below 800 yards just four times in 17 seasons, and only twice after 1998.
7. Charles Clay (119.4 points) — Will hopefully be more creatively and consistently utilized in 2013.
8. Greg Olsen (117.6 points) — Olsen topped 80 yards only three times all season, but set his watch to 5-50.
9. Antonio Gates (111.2 points) — 48.4 of Gates’ points came in his first four games. He topped 6.0 points only four more times all season.
10. Martellus Bennett (105.9 points) — Bennett continued his gradual breakout, recording his first top-10 fantasy campaign.

Best and Worst of 2013 based on ADP

 

It’s with a heavy heart that we say goodbye to the 2013 fantasy football season. Before we fade to black, we must honor those top players that provided the most bang for the draft-day buck this year. Below are the best and worst fantasy football performers based on average draft position.

 

QUARTERBACKS

Best: Andy Dalton

ADP: 12th Round
Finished: QB3 in points scored
Recap: Over 51 percent of his fantasy points scored came in five of his 16 starts this season. He threw 11 touchdowns with four interceptions (all in Week 17) over his last five games. Dalton was ranked QB9 in fantasy points scored during Weeks 9 – 17.

Worst: Tom Brady

ADP: 3rd Round
Finished: QB13
Recap: Brady’s 25 touchdown passes were the fewest he’s thrown in a 16-game season since 2006. His 60.5 completion percentage was his worst since 2003. He passed for less than 200 yards five times. It didn’t help that his receiving corps was as green as they come and only had Gronk in the lineup for basically six games.

 

RUNNING BACKS

Best: Knowshon Moreno

ADP: 15th Round
Finished: RB5
Recap: Although he did most of his damage in the first half of the season (eight touchdowns by October 20), Moreno did post the best stats of his career with 1,038 rushing and 548 receiving yards with 13 total scores and no lost fumbles.

After his career high 37 carries in one game, Moreno and Montee Ball split the workload. So much so that the starter didn’t receive more than 15 carries in the five games that followed.

Worst: C.J. Spiller and Ray Rice

ADP: 1st Round
Finished: RB27 and RB28
Recap: Spiller and Rice were so consistently subpar, their fantasy RB ranking, based on total points scored, the second half of the season was RB26 and RB33, respectively.

Ray Rice finished with four touchdowns. His last score came on November 17. Spiller’s two scores came two months apart at the beginning of October and December.

“We are going to give him the ball until he throws up. So he has to either throw up or tap out on the field.” – Nathaniel Hackett on C.J. Spiller in the New York Daily News – August 16, 2013

 

WIDE RECEIVERS

Best: Josh Gordon and Alshon Jeffery

ADP: 12th and 15th Rounds
Finished: WR1 and WR8
Recap: In eight of the Browns’ last nine games, Gordon was targeted 10 or more times. He spent the month of November and first day of December breaking franchise and league records with 237 and 261 receiving yards in back-to-back games. His nine touchdowns are the most by a Browns’ receiver in one season since Braylon Edwards in 2007 (16 TD).

In a much more crowded passing game, Jeffery managed to outgain Brandon Marshall by 126 receiving yards on 11 fewer receptions (89). Jeffery’s 16 yards per catch were 10th-best in the NFL this season. He scored four touchdowns the last month of the season.

Worst: Roddy White and Hakeem Nicks

ADP: 4th and 6th Rounds
Finished: WR55 and WR52
Recap: Granted, White missed three games this season, but I’m not sure what’s more depressing, the fact that White failed to reach 1,000 receiving yards in a season for the first time since 2006 or that Nicks, who only missed one game, failed to score a touchdown in a contract year.

Thanks to a strong effort the last two weeks of the season (35.2 FP), White finished the second half of the season ranked WR25, but Nicks failed to crack the Top 50.

 

TIGHT ENDS

Best: Julius Thomas

ADP: 15th Round
Finished: TE3
Recap: Peyton Manning does like to spread the wealth around the Broncos’ receiving corps, but 2013 proved once again he still loves to target the tight end. During his time with the Colts, tight end Dallas Clark posted two double-digit touchdown campaigns in 2007 (11 TD) and 2009 (10 TD), but Thomas managed to scored 12 times on only 89 targets. So, 13.5 percent of the time Manning threw the ball in Thomas’ direction, the play resulted in a touchdown.

Pineapple Planked Flounder

 

 

INGREDIENTS

 

1 pineapple
2 pieces fresh flounder
1 whole lemon
salt
ground black pepper

 

PREPARATION

 

Core the pineapple carefully so you can save all of that fresh juice for the marinade.
Pour the fresh pineapple juice into a pan and add 1/2 fresh lemon squeezed, salt, and pepper. Place the flounder pieces in the pan to marinate ~2-3 minutes on each side.
Cut the shell of the pineapple into rectangular pieces. You will need 4 if you are doing 2 pieces of the flounder. Be generous with the size as you want the flounder to be fully inside the shell once they are put together.
Once you have the planks cut remove as much of the pineapple as possible from them.
Put the now marinated flounder on top of one of the planks and add 2 lemon slices, salt and pepper. Place another plank on top and secure them together. Repeat for the next piece of flounder.
Place on the grill over direct heat, cover and cook for approximately 15-17 minutes at 400°.
Halfway during the grill open it up and flip them so they cook evenly on both sides.
Remove from the grill and enjoy!
