Rate My Team
My buddies and I always do fantasy football a little different. We always hold one draft the last week of June and we hold another the first week of August.
The June league is just for fun because a lot can change even from the draft to the season. I wouldn't recommend it for everyone though, as it takes a solid core of guys who will stick it out. There's no giving up when your 2nd round RB tears his ACL in training camp etc. The benefit to the June draft is we have two months before the season starts, so most teams look quite a bit different by the first of the season than they do after the draft.
Our August league is the one we take serious with a $75 buy in, first place gets $400, 2nd place gets $225, 3rd place gets $125.
Anyways, we concluded our June draft last night and here are the results for my team:
QB: Matt Stafford, Josh Freeman
RB: Trent Richardson, CJ Spiller, Steven Ridley, Darren Sproles, David Wilson, Ben Tate
WR: Victor Cruz, Dwayne Bowe, Kenny Britt, Eric Decker, Mike Wallace, Mike Williams
I didn't draft a TE or K so far, I will try to trade for a TE but if not will grab one off FA. The Kicker I will sign just before the season, I figured Ben Tate was more valuable if Foster went down than the difference between a 15th round K and a FA Kicker. I know my QB is a little weak, but there's still some good players out on FA and I will try to upgrade that via a trade as well. Although I do think Stafford and Freeman will both have good years, and would be fine rolling with them if I had to.
