I also came in second in my league last year (which was also my rookie year). And I barely lost too–I didn’t know Willis McGahee was even gonna play in that game, and he did and had a helluva game, but I had him benched, otherwise, I woulda won. This also came after I had a really rough, disastrous first have of the fantasy season (I was in last place and came back to win 8 or 9 straight, losing only in the championship game).
As for early draft info, I really couldn’t say right now. I’ll stick with my plan from last year though–all the guys went after runningbacks with their first pick last year, but I took Peyton with mine, and ended up taking another quality back with my second (Corey Dillon), then took Favre with my third. Julius Jones had a pretty decent year, considering he was out for most of the season. Jason Witten was a smart pickup as a sleeper tight end, and is having the best career of all the tight ends drafted above him in his class, combined (can you tell I’m a rabid Cowboys fan?).
Either way, I can’t wait to start up when I get back to school. Let the shit talking begin.
