Here’s my one and only addition of “Fantasy Football Friday.” Because if my current fantasy baseball experience will be anything like fantasy football, then I’ll accept defeat by week 5. But I do like in fantasy football there are weekly matchups instead of just playing against the entire league every day like you do in baseball.
We had our draft Tuesday night, and I did it sitting on the couch with my dog, snacking, and watching TV with my mom. So my attention wasn’t 100% there but I could kill time between my picks.
Monday night I put together my list of players by position and tried to stick to that the best I could.
I took OBJ with my first pick; I would have taken Saquon Barkley but someone else took him early. Six of my 17 players are former Alabama players—part of my overall strategy—and I panicked when I came to my quarterback and took Andrew Luck. I had Alex Smith, Deshaun Watson, and Marcus Mariota on my list, and when I went to pick a QB, Smith was already gone, I couldn’t find Watson as the clock was ticking down from a minute, so I took Luck because he was ranked high in the remaining QBs.
I got the Pats defense and Steven Gotskowski as my kicker—I had him the last time I did fantasy football and he was always good. I know of every single player but one. I needed a WR so I took Kenny Golladay. I might drop him and pick up an extra kicker for when the Pats have a bye week. But you didn’t hear that here.
So, yeah. There’s my fantasy football experience for the season. I think I’ll be a better team manager or supervisor or whatever you’re called for football.
How does your team look? Are you excited for football to start?
