Here Are My Two Fantasy Teams; What Do You Think?

I realize this is a loaded question, but it is a nice way to generate conversation and a decent break from some real data or longform heavy topics before the season gets underway.

My two money drafts are now completed, and we are just waiting around for Thursday night, scouring the waiver when time permits.

Thoughts: I really like this team, but unfortunately, I cannot say that I completely drafted it. My imprint is on it, but I ‘hired’ my friend Nate to do the drafting for me since I was unavailable.

The original plan was to target Jimmy Graham, but we had ninth pick out of 12 teams, and when Jamaal Charles fell, we could not pass it up. It is a quarterback heavy league, which gives a bit more context as to why Charles fell, but I am very excited to have him and think Russell Wilson will hold his own, turning in another 26 touchdown pass season.

Between Marqise Lee, Cody Latimer, and Khiry Robinson, think there is some solid upside on the bench here and looking forward to managing it. Nate crushed it.

Thoughts: This is in a league that I have ran for 10 years, and you will see some slight overlap between Team 1 and this one with Wilson and Johnson.

I love the depth I theoretically have on this squad but don’t love all of the starters. Just missed out on a few guys who I was really targeting like Brandon Marshall, Nick Foles, Zach Ertz, and the Texans defense. I anticipate being consistent though as long as Julio Jones bounces back from the foot injury that cost him most of his season in 2013.

For as much as I love Fantasy Football, I’m excited to only be in two leagues with serious implications this year. Over the past few seasons, I had spread myself too thin and am happy to be able to hone a bit more now.

What say you? Do you love my strategy? Do you think my teams are awful and anticipate a miserable year for me? Let’s discuss, folks.
