It was a great game for my fantasy players as well. I had Greg Jennings who had 89 yards and a score and Jimmy Graham who had 56 yards and a score netting me a cool 25.6 pts to start the week.
I couldn't think of anything else to write about today so I guess I'll share my fantasy football team with you all. The league is a standard yahoo competitive 10 team league. I had the 8th pick in the draft. I did not do any kind of research prior to this draft and was going with the Yahoo expert ranks as my cheat sheet. Oh yeah, I forgot to draft a kicker or defense but who the hell cares about kicker or defense. Here was my draft with round and pick number...
|1.||(8)||Rashard Mendenhall||RB I could have picked LeSean McCoy here also. Mendenhall is a |
lock for 10-15 TDs.
|2.||(13)||Maurice Jones-Drew||RB Yahoo experts had him ranked pretty high but had |
I known he is coming off knee surgery I wouldn't have picked him.
|3.||(28)||Miles Austin||WR I wanted to get a couple of top receivers on good offenses and |
Miles was the best one available.
|4.||(33)||Greg Jennings||WR Tony Romo was my other thought here but want to diversify |
my offensive players.
|5.||(48)||Ahmad Bradshaw||RB I couldn't believe I got him this late.|
|6.||(53)||Jeremy Maclin||WR I probably should have drafted a QB here.|
|7.||(68)||Jimmy Graham||TE One of the best sleeper tight ends, might have reached a bit.|
|8.||(73)||Mark Ingram||RB I had to take Ingram here, couldn't believe he was still available.|
|9.||(88)||Eli Manning||QB I was hoping Stafford fell to me but someone scooped him up |
right before me and now won't even take an offer for him. I have
really low expectations for Manning this year and am looking for
a new QB.
|10.||(93)||Sidney Rice||WR I had no idea who to pick. Seattle's passing game is going to |
stink this year.
|11.||(108)||Lance Moore||WR I had no idea who to pick so went with someone from a good |
|12.||(113)||Fred Jackson||RB A starting running back still left? I'll take him!|
|13.||(128)||Aaron Hernandez||TE He could be the number 2 receiver on the team behind Welker, |
|14.||(133)||Roy Williams||WR Wasted pick because of my Bears love. I had no idea how |
many picks I had left at this point.
|15.||(148)||Cam Newton||QB I love Cam this year and think he is going to do real well. |
50 rushing yards a game are going to help a lot!
