This year i’m currently in 6 Fantasy Football leagues at Yahoo! Fantasy Sports. The last draft occurred yesterday without me present, but its just a league that i’ve been playing with for probably the last 6 years, and i don’t really care about. A new league i was lucky enough to join this year is one of consisting of entirely food bloggers i’ve followed on Twitter.
We’ll see if they’re food cravings can match their football knowledge.
More importantly entering its 7th season, the The All VETO n NO TRADE League which is the only league that i have money riding on, and one that i won in the first year, but have steadily declined since. I’m not sure if in the beginning the rest of the league didn’t know what they were doing, or i just was lucky enough the first time around. This year i decided to go against my typical strategy of drafting running backs and not looking back, and went a whole new direction.
With the 8 of 12 pick of the draft i knew i was going to be left with questionable RB starters, the top QBs and WRs. I opted going all out with the WR since the league has 4 positions that you can start them in, and i really couldn’t tell you of the remaining RBs who would actually make it all the way through the seaosn either healthy or stay the starter. In the first round i went with the top WR in Andre Johnson, and on the way back took Miles Austin. With the 2 of the top 4 WRs i was pretty set in that position, i followed it up by taking a bevy of draft position upside RBs in Jamaal Charles (32), Knowshon Moreno (56), Ricky Williams (89), Tim Hightower (104), with a few potential WRs in between Jeremy Maclin (65), Malcom Floyd (80). For my Quarterback i was determined to get one of the top 7 QBs and landed Matt Schaub in round 4. I was too sick of playing match ups last year, and was too often disappointed with the results.
With both LA Baseball teams out of the playoffs, and most of my fantasy teams too far from the money, i can’t wait for the start of football season.
