The 2012 NFL season has begun, and despite the opening day loss to the Cowboys, I will persevere. The Giants are always slow starters, and we were down to our 5th string CB. I have worries, but we’ll get it together. Anyways, with the season starting, it’s time to talk fantasy football.
I love fantasy sports; it’s basically Dungeons and Dragons for sports fans. It allows me to flex my football (or baseball) IQ. Knowing who to draft and when to draft a player comes with studying and experience. But of course, that’s only half of it. There’s also luck. You have to be lucky sometimes to get the player you want. You also have to hope that the guy you drafted stays healthy, or that the sleeper pick you got pulls through. Or that a certain player isn’t a one year wonder (ex: Victor Cruz). All these things make every season exciting.
This year, I’m participating in 4 leagues. One is with a bunch of old acquaintances from back home in Bama. The other 3 are with random people on ESPN. I’ll be doing a post on each draft since it’s going to be really long. Here’s my first team and the league it’s in:
