Fantasy Football Experts Draft in Chicago

I just got back last night from the summer FSTA conference in Chicago and now have a little more time to look back on the fantasy team Pat and I drafted. Yes, I realize it’s only the middle of June, but it’s the only time the fantasy world can all get together before the start of the season. With that said,  we had the 11th spot in a 12 team draft and went with L.T. followed by Steven Jackson in rd. 2.  I couldn’t believe that both guys were there considering it’s a PPR league and both should catch plenty of balls out of the backfield.  WR’s then started to fly off the board and we had to go with Housmanzada as our #1, Lance Moore, Lee Evans, Justin Gage and Heyward Bey.  Like I said, WR started to fly off the board so we didn’t quite get a stud.  We did however get Antonio Gates as our TE which softens the blow.   Our stable of  RBs ended up being L.T., S. Jackson, A. Bradshaw, Sproles, and Fargas. I knew we had to go with the handcuff in Sproles since L.T. was a little banged up.   So, if all goes well I think our week 1 lineup will be as follows:


RBs- L.T., S. Jackson

WR.- Housmanzada, L. Moore, L. Evans

TE- Gates

Flex- Bradshaw



Tell me what you think.  I can take it- I’m just not sure about Pat though.  -DM
