More Fantasy Football.

8 09 2010

So, before I left for Florida, I completed my Twitter Ladies of Pittsburgh draft. You can see my post about my team here.

I’m also in the Plurk Junkies league again this year. I was in this league last year, my first attempt ever at Fantasy Football. Our draft was this past Sunday. I was in Florida and I didn’t really pay attention to my picks much, except that half the players I wanted, Uncle Crappy grabbed. Oh well.

Anyway, my Plurk Junkies team:

  • QB: Eli Manning, NYG
  • RB: Frank Gore, PHI
  • RB: Rashard Mendenhall, PIT
  • WR: DeSean Jackson, , PHI
  • WR: Percy Harvin, MIN
  • WR: Wes Welker, NE
  • TE: Kellen Winslow, TB
  • D/ST: New York Giants
  • K: Jeff Reed, PIT
  • BE: Marion Barber, RB, DAL
  • BE: Chad Henne, QB, MIA
  • BE: Heath Miller, TE, PIT
  • BE: Santonio Holmes, WR, NYJ
  • BE: Ricky Williams, RB, MIA
  • BE: Minnesota, D/ST

And, since I seem to enjoy this clueless football torture, I joined my friend Bobby’s Yahoo Pro Football Pick ‘Em League. I know less about this than picking players each week. Ah, new adventures.

My picks, in bold:

  • Minnesota vs New Orleans
  • Miami vs Buffalo
  • Detroit vs Chicago
  • Oakland vs. Tennessee
  • Cincinnati vs New England
  • Carolina vs New York Giants
  • Atlanta vs Pittsburgh
  • Cleveland vs Tampa Bay
  • Denver vs Jacksonville
  • Indianapolis vs Houston
  • Arizona vs St. Louis
  • Green Bay vs Philadelphia
  • San Francisco vs Seattle
  • Dallas vs Washington
  • Baltimore vs New York Jets
  • San Diego vs Kansas City

So yeah. This football season should be fun, er, stressful. Mostly fun. Who am I kidding.





Fantasy Football. Again

23 08 2010

Oh yeah, after last year’s major failure at FF, I’m not only participating in ONE team this year. I’m in at least TWO leagues.

And I have no idea what I’m doing.

League Twitter Ladies of Pittsburgh just completed the draft. On ESPN.com, which was new to me… And here’s my team:

  • QB: Philip Rivers, SD
  • RB: Maurice Jones-Drew, JAC
  • RB: Pierre Thomas, NO
  • RB/WR: Jahvid Best, DET
  • WR: Larry Fitzgerald, ARZ
  • WR: Percy Harvin, MIN
  • TE: Jermichael Finley, GB
  • D/ST: Eagles D/ST, PHI
  • K: Garrett Hartley, NO
  • BE: Steve Slaton, RB, HOU
  • BE: Kevin Kolb, QB, PHI
  • BE: Jeremy Shockey, TE, NO
  • BE: Montario Hardesty, RB, CLE
  • BE: Bernard Berrian, WR, MIN
  • BE: Matt Cassel, QB, KC
  • BE: Chargers, D/ST, SD

Yes, I just realized I have TWO QBs on my bench. Obviously I was too busy painting my toenails for Florida to realize this and grab myself a backup kicker.

This means I will be spending some quality time with NE, hopefully, while I visit, so he can tell me he terrible my draft went. And maybe he can help me find a kicker to try to pick up. Oy vey.





Fantasy Football

30 08 2009

For some reason unknown to me, I decided to enter a Fantasy Football league with some of my online friends this year. I’ve never done this before. I don’t even pay attention to football that much, besides the Steelers.

So my draft is tomorrow night at 10pm. I have no idea what I’m going to do. Or how to do it. I guess I’m going to figure it out as I go…

Should be interesting.

In other news, 13 days until I see Little C and my family. Yay!
