So this year I joined a fantasy football league for the first time. I didn’t know how the whole thing was supposed to work, so I needed a little help (thanks Cyndi!). Here’s my team:
Quarterbacks: Peyton Manning, Eli Manning
Running Backs: Deuce McAllister, Dominic Rhodes, LaMont Jordan, Derrick Ward
Wide receivers: Calvin Johnson, Santana Moss, Reggie Wayne, Donte Stallworth
Tight End: Dallas Clark
Defense: Patriots, Colts
Kicker: Neil Rackers
Out of that group, my Active roster this week was as follows:
QB: Peyton Manning
RB: Jordan, Ward
WR: Johnson, Moss, Wayne
I won my first game 109-94. Even though the guy I played had Joseph Addai, who had an AWESOME game Sunday. I felt pretty good.
Then I woke up yesterday evening and found out that Deuce McAllister (one of my “big producers”…I hoped) tore his ACL and is out for the season. So I dropped a Deuce (ha ha) and picked up Chris Brown (backup RB for Tennessee).
Those of you out there who have played….I have Eli and Peyton right now. I plan on playing Peyton every week, except for the Colts’ bye week (6), when I will play Eli. Here’s a question: Do I offer Eli in trade after that week, since I don’t ever plan on playing him again? Or do I keep him out of circulation so nobody else can grab him?
