I'm obsessed. I used to deny it, but now I embrace it. I am completely obsessed with fantasy football. It was only a matter of time until I blogged about it. Honestly, I'm proud of myself for not blogging about it weekly. That's how obsessed I am.
Anyway, the season starts tomorrow; actual football and fantasy football. More excited, I could not be. I'm so excited about football, that I decided yesterday to go to the Rams home opener on Sunday. I paid 12 bucks for my ticket. I'm sure Chiefs fans are jealous of that ticket price. The Rams kickoff at 3:25 that afternoon, so obviously I'll be in St. Louis by noon to watch the first round of games for the day at a sports bar. I have to keep up with my fantasy players. Everyone always tries to tell me that players play the same, regardless of whether I watch them or not. I find that to be false. I have no proof for this statement, but I stand by it.
I'm in 2 fantasy football leagues this year: One with my friends and one with my co-workers. I take the one with my friends a lot more seriously. We've done it since we were in high school and a majority of my friends take it too far with the league as well. Again, we embrace it. Here are the players I'll be cheering for:
FRIEND LEAGUE (12 team league, standard scoring, start 1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE, 1 DEF, 1 K):
QB: Andrew Luck, Michael Vick
RB: Trent Richardson, Matt Forte, David Wilson, Roy Helu, Isaiah Pead
WR: Danny Amendola, T.Y. Hilton, DeSean Jackson, Michael Floyd, Cordarelle Patterson, Markus Wheaton
TE: Jordan Cameron
K: Empty (I will drop someone to pick up a kicker before Sunday)
CO-WORKER LEAGUE (10 team league, standard scoring (for the most part), start 1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 RB/WR FLEX, 1 TE, 1 DEF, 1 K):
QB: Tom Brady, Michael Vick
RB: C.J. Spiller, Stevan Ridley, Lamar Miller, Ahmad Bradshaw
WR: Pierre Garcon, Steve Smith, T.Y. Hilton
TE: Jimmy Graham
K: Josh Brown
As I said, I'm excited for the season. I realize this might not make sense or be interesting to a lot of people. So, just in case.... Hey Girl.....
