Rate My NFFC Online Championship Draft
So I just participated in the NFFC Online Championship to once again assert my dominance as a fantasy owner. If you aren’t familiar, you get to rank the draft slots according in order of preference. I had the No. 9 spot ranked ninth, but I still ended up getting it. Take a look at what I did with it, then I’ll tell you my thought process.
I think the No. 9 spot is one of the worst in fantasy football this year, primarily because whoever you get will necessarily be too much of a gamble in the first round. Unless you’re in a league with novices and Aaron Rodgers drops to you, you’re basically going to be choosing between Chris Johnson, Matt Forte, or (maybe) Drew Brees.
Having said that, I thought the first four rounds went pretty well. In hindsight, I wish I had bypassed Cam Newton in the second round in favor of Darren McFadden because my running backs after CJ are very weak. I also didn’t know Matt Ryan and Tony Romo would drop to the sixth. I was thrilled to get Roddy White in the third and Mike Wallace in the fourth, however.
The fifth round is where things started to go downhill. I really didn’t want to take Steve Johnson, and in a normal draft, that’s a spot I would have tried to trade out of. Altogether, I think the team is a decent-but-not-great one, considering the draft spot. I’ll likely participate in another draft or two before the season begins, and I’ll post those as well. Feel free to let me know how you think I did in this draft.
Also just noticed I copied the ninth round twice. No, I didn’t draft James Starks twice. Yes, I now wish I hadn’t even drafted him once.
