Fantasy Draft 2010: The Wrap-Up

The draft happened without a glitch. In a 12-team keeper league, my three were: Tony Romo, Brandon Marshall and Greg Jennings. In the draft I picked up C.J. Spiller, Carnell Williams, Tony Gonzalez, Robert Meachem, LaDainian Tomlinson, Sam Bradford, Kenny Britt, James Davis, Mark Sanchez, Matt Prater (K), Tennessee (DEF). So all in all, I think I did pretty well. Since it was a keeper league, most of the top tier in each position were already unavailable, and since I picked ninth, I didn’t get a couple of my top choices. But we’ll see what happens as game 1 approaches! How do you think I did? Would you disagree with any of my picks? Who would you start of those players I have available? Respond below.

Fantasy Football 2010: Draft Order

As another year of fantasy football begins, I’m spending time preparing my draft order. I play in a keeper league and my three keepers are:
Tony Romo (QB)
Greg Jennings (WR)
Brandon Marshall (WR)

Unavailable players are: Ronnie Brown, Ray Rice, Anquan Boldin, Philip Rivers, Dwayne Bowe, Michael Bush, Ryan Grant, Roddy White, Steve Smith (CAR), Maurice Jones-Drew, Rashard Mendenhall, Shonne Green, Adrian Peterson, Michael Turner, Drew Brees, Peyton Manning, Joseph Addai, LeSean McCoy, Aaron Rodgers, Randy Moss, Cedric Benson, Andre Johnson, Steven Jackson, DeAngelo Williams, Calvin Johnson (DET), Larry Fitzgerald, Dallas Clark, Chris Johnson (TEN), Frank Gore, Tom Brady

Positions I need filled are running back, a couple more wide receiver spots, a tight end, kicker and defense. So of all the available talent out there, who would you recommend I pick first? Second? Third? I’ve done some research myself, but I’m curious about the small crowd of people who follow fantasy football managers and read blogs. If that’s you, tell me what you think! Should my first pick (9th out of 12 in the first round) be a running back, another wide receiver, or a different position? 

Here’s how I did in the draft.

Spring Is Here!

I recently noticed the leaves on the trees in my backyard.

Spring is here!

One tree has a bunch of spinny things that float down to the ground. Another has some tiny green leaves. This weekend I will mow my grass.

Spring is here!

Television stations are airing finales and cueing up the re-runs. Flowers are blooming, the sun is shining overhead.

All this means one thing: Baseball is boring. And Spring is here!

Put down your Wii controllers and pick up a tennis racket. Turn off American Idol and go take a walk under the stars!

Spring is here… and the NFL draft already happened!
