I’ve made some crap draft decisions this year in fantasy football. It’s why I’ve mentioned football so little in this space. In one league, I am middle of the pack in points, but sitting with a 0-3 record.
Yesterday was no different. I actually listened to Footballguys.com and played Darrius Heyward-Bey over Michael Crabtree. Yes, I thought like Al Davis.
But the afternoon game proved to keep me in the matchup. I had only a kicker and a defense left to go against a strong opposing squad. And then something wonderful happened. Interception after interception, San Diego Chargers Defense kepte in it. I got 40 from them.
When everyone else at the draft was busy fighting over Brandon Lafell and Dexter McCluster, I scooped up a second, then a third team defense. The scoring settings were just too abnormally skewed in favor of Team D. SD was the third team I drafted, and it might have been the only smart decision I made that evening.
Tonight I’ve got Brandon Marshall against Wes Welker and a point. Consider me a Dolphins fan.
