My First Fantasy Football Draft

27 Aug

You may have noticed I was missing in action yesterday. My absence was in part because of recovering from a night of drunk debauchery but also because I was preparing for my first ever Fantasy Football Draft. Like any good student I had waited till the last-minute to study. A guy friend, who has mastered fantasy gave me this advice:

1. Draft Philadelphia Eagles’ running back LeSean McCoy first. I was pick number 4, McCoy went as number 2 in our draft. So  I failed at that one.

3. Whatever you do don’t draft Dallas Cowboys’ quarterback Tony Romo. Okay this one I definitely didn’t do. I instead went with Philadelphia Eagles’ quarterback Michael Vick.

No Peyton for the Cardinals

The Arizona Cardinals are paying QB Kevin Kolb a $7 million roster bonus which means there is no money room for Peyton Manning. The question is how much was Manning really considering the Cardinals? Was it just a ploy to up his asking price? I personally think Manning had enough interest that he didn’t need the Cardinals to make him look more expensive valuable. The Cardinals however may have really need Manning. Kolb has a lot of growing room before he becomes a real threat. Not only that but this $7 million is just for him to compete to be a starter against QB John Skelton at training camp.  It also doesn’t make much since to pay someone $7 million to compete to be the starting QB? So if he’s not a starter then what did the Cardinals just pay $7 million for exactly?
