Fantasy Football Week 1 – The Big Leagues

Hopefully by throwing the words "Fantasy Football" in the title of my posts, I can warn off the folks who aren't interested in my weekly recaps (Kevin).  I'll refrain from doing more than one of these a week, and there won't be any other content besides football or Fantasy Football in them, so feel free to ignore these posts if that's not your cup of tea.

This year, I decided to form a local league with my coworkers in addition to the one my friends in Syracuse play in.  This way I have some folks at work to trash-talk and discuss the games with, which I've been missing since I moved away from Syracuse.  Since I had more experience with fantasy football than my other coworkers, I set up the league and am League Commissioner, which is a fancy way of saying I get to do all the behind-the-scenes organization crap with no extra compensation for it.  But hey!  At least I get a local league to play in!

And I won my local league's first week game against my opponent, the Scorpions!

Although my defense really let me down, my other players made up for it enough to let me squeak by for the win.  I think Maroney's going to be a bust this year now that Brady is out for the season – his replacement likes to throw the ball so the running game looks to be low priority.

Oh yeah, I also won my other league's game, but only because my opponent has the worst 1st-week luck of anyone I've ever seen!

Yes, I won this week primarily because my opponent's quarterback got sidelined for the season early in the first quarter of his game.  Not shown here is his backup receiver (Nate Burleson) who ALSO suffered a season-ending knee injury in his week one game (hence my opponent's new team name).  Talk about crappy luck of the draft!
