Fantasy football season is upon us. For those of you who followed the combines, draft and pre-season games, I am impressed by your commitment and available free time. For the rest of us there are plenty of links for cheat sheets, injury reports and draft strategies.
This will be my fifth year participating in a fantasy football league and my best performance has been a second place finish in 2005. The league has always consisted of 10 teams and the winner usually has 2 or more standout players and has remained injury free. While the first round draft pick can make a difference the 2nd and 3rd round pick are usually the difference makers and are based on who steps up. Injuries are tougher to gage as they can cripple a team very easily.
My plan this year is a little different. If I cannot get a top 3 running back in the first round I intend to draft a QB-WR-WR combo and settle for a top 20 versus top 10 starting running back. Maybe this is the year for the Arvada Armadillos to win it all.
