It’s that time of year again guys and gals! Football Season is imminent when the weather slowly dwindles down to the not-so-hot season, especially here in Minnesota. It’s a time of year when the girlfriends and wives are ranting about the disappearance of their boyfriends and husbands. This is the relentless cycle where Fantasy Football fanatics are cooped up in their make believe world of being owners of real life football stars in a weekly melee of wits in picking the right football studs that’ll get you a “W” by the end of each Monday night football.
I’ve been in the same league for the past five years and this is my sixth year in the league. Set aside the smack talking about incompetence in others ability to smack talk back, scrutinizing your friend’s ineptitude in his knowledge during the Fantasy Football draft day, and licking one’s chop during your weekly wins, it’s a grown man’s game and not for the faint of hearts. So to all the crybabies out there, please stray away if you can’t take a joke or two about how hopeless you are. It is what it is and that might just be the damn truth and nothing but the truth!
Since the popularity of this make believe world I’ve slowly hyped it up and even getting more able bodies into this year’s fantasy league. In total, the old league owners and I managed to get a total of 14 players this year, but we rather prefer to be known as owners or managers rather than just players in a fantasy league.
Here’s my starting roster after a pick up from free agency (picked up Troy Williamson and dropping James Jones) and a trade (Matt Ryan and Jamal Lewis for Carson Palmer and Braylon Edward):
QB: Carson Palmer – Cincinnati Bengals
RB: Maurice Jones-Drew – Jacksonville Jaguars
RB: Kevin Smith – Detroit Lions
WR: Brandon Marshall – Denver Broncos
WR: Braylon Edward – Cleveland Browns
WR: Anthony Gonzalez – Indianapolis Colts
TE: Chris Cooley – Washington Redskins
DEF: New England Patriots
K: Rob Bironas – Tennessee Titans
Here are my 6 subs on the bench:
WR: Donnie Avery – Saint Louis Rams
WR: Mark Clayton – Baltimore Ravens
WR: Troy Williamson – Jacksonville Jaguars
WR: Michael Jenkins – Atlanta Falcons
RB: Shonn Greene – New York Jets
QB: Marc Bulger – Saint Louis Rams
I’ll keep an update throughout my challenges this year with my fantasy league–wins and losses and the whole nine yard. I feel very confident about the team that I have this year, so stay tune for all the future updates.
