I remember a friend in college who didn’t enjoy fantasy sports claiming that, “my fantasies don’t involve 7-foot tall black men.” I guess there will always be mockers.
I am in four football leagues this year but only one where I know the guys. Three guys from my congregation are in their plus about 5-6 that have played together for years and most of us went to college at FHU together.
I have Thomas Jones on most of my teams. Improved O-line plus Favre has to boost his stats, right?
Since you don’t realy care anyway, I will only talk about this one league with friends.
I have Matt Schaub at QB. I liked him last year, especially when he and Andre Johnson were both healthy. He has a good TE, but the running game is shaky. Could mean he passes more, yea for me. Could hurt the passing game. I have David Garrard and Brett Favre on the bench. I just picked up Favre, and expect to trade one of my three QBs to improve my TE.
At RB, I have Steven Jackson, Thomas Jones, and Deangelo Williams. I love Jackson and I already mentioned TJ. I have rookie Titan Chris Johnson on the bench. He has shown some flash and their starter isn’t great.
At WR, I start Braylon Edwards and Jerrico Cotchery. I have high hopes for Jerrico. We will see. He put up good numbers with Chad Pennington, so should improve if Favre stays healthy. Patrick Crayton and Santana Moss are on the bench.
My TE is Zack Miller (Oakland). I messed up and didn’t draft one and he was available on waivers. I saw him make a great catch in a preseason game. He has a young QB and weak WRs. I would still like to upgrade.
I already traded to improve my D/ST. I got San Diego for Roy Williams. Even with a lesser Merriman, they should be good with Cromartie, Weddle, and a tough D-line.
Who really cares about kickers. I have Phil Dawson. Big Deal.
Anyway, I am excited. It’s fun to play and makes watching NFL even more enjoyable for me.
Thursday, look for my completely uneducated NFL picks.
