Fantasy Football is a season of giving. Usually these gifts are ones of smack-downs, tears, self-loathing, or a hole in your wallet.
Fantasy Football is also a season of taking. However, all of the danger lies in the taking. The culprit of this danger, is the Fantasy Draft. Year after year, many think they have devised a brilliant scheme to win their league.
However, most of these revelations equate to decisions like drafting Donovan McNabb because he and Mike Shanahan are a match made in heaven.
Whether it’s a snake or an auction draft, there are some hefty decisions to be made. No decision weighs greater than who to place the stakes of your personal franchise on. I’m talking, who’s going to be the bread maker?
Last season you didn’t see Arian Foster or Michael Vick going in the first round or even auctioned over $10 for that matter. Whereas this year, you won’t be able to take these guys past sixth overall or for cheaper than fifty big-ones.
This year the draft board is more convoluted than ever. With concerns about Foster’s hamstring, Vick’s durability and consistency, Chris Johnson’s holdout, Peyton Manning‘s neck, Maurice Jones-Drew‘s knee, Ray Rice being able to live up to his fantasy hype, and even Adrian Peterson‘s offensive line, there is no clear-cut number one, bona fide, mack-daddy top choice.
Or is there? You let us know.
