If you follow on Facebook, you know that I had my Fantasy Football draft on Monday afternoon in preparation for the start of the season on Thursday. I play in a league with J and a handful of his friends. Yes, I’m the only girl and I tend to do fairly well. My first year, I won the league. Of course, we weren’t playing for money that year. Bummer! I have placed in the top 3 each year and this year I aim to dominate and bring home some cash!
In our league, you have the option to keep one player from the previous year and I, once again, opted to keep Drew Brees. He has helped me along for the past few years so I had to stay true. Then I just went with my gut when my turn came along. I ended up with the last pick so I always got two picks in a row. This was challenging sometimes but I think I put together a decent team! Here is my starting line up for this week:
QB – Drew Brees (great start to the season!)
WR – Reggie Wayne
WR – Dwayne Bowe (not so great at all)
RB – Steven Jackson
RB – Jahvid Best
TE – Antonio Gates (I also had him last year and he did well for me most of the season)
FLEX (WR/RB) – Mario Manningham
K – Sebastian Janikowski
DEF – Detroit
I am currently winning my matchup 120 – 104 and based on the players left to play, it’s looking pretty good for me. I would love to have a first week win!
So… do you play Fantasy Football? What was your draft strategy? How has your first week gone?
