Analysis of my fantasy football draft

Posted by Chance on August 30, 2007

A quick note: I haven’t been posting nearly as often. Part of it is being busy. I’m doing a little bit of work offsite, and overall I’ve just had a lot on my plate. Also, the little bit of time during work I am engaged in personal stuff, I’ve been involved with my fantasy football team that I drafted last weekend. Also, I’ve had a lack of inspiration due to being so busy. When I’m not busy, all sorts of stuff is going through my head, and the focus for some time has been political/philosophical issues. For some reason, having a child, fantasy football, and work stuff has been filling my head. I will try to post when I have the time, but I’m not making any promises. I know it’s nice for readers of a blog to have the blogger post on a consistent basis, but I just can’t promise that.

Back to my fantasy football draft, here is an analysis of a few of my picks. There are 15 players and 15 picks per player.

1st round – Travis Henry, RB, Denver Broncos. I think Henry has a lot of potential in an offense in which any running back does pretty well. There are injuries to be concerned about. I had a choice between him and Maroney of the Patriots, and upon reflection, Maroney may have been the better choice, but I think Henry has the bigger upside.
2nd round – Cedric Benson, RB, Da Bears. At this point, there were higher rated players who were quarterbacks. I decided to go for two strong running backs. This is a bit of a gamble, as this is his first year as the premier back.
3rd round – Vince Young, QB, Tennessee Titans. I am a huge Vince Young fan. However, this may not have been the best pick. A good rule in Fantasy Football is to pick either a super-elite QB, or wait until the later rounds as their is not a huge point difference among them. I probably should have picked a very good wide receiver at this point. Nevertheless, having Vince will make FF more fun this year. I root for Vince Young anyway, and when he does well, I have the added bonus of my team doing well.
6th Round – Fred Taylor, RB, Jacksonville Jaguars – I think a good pick for this round. I needed a backup RB, and I thought Fred was pretty good to still be hanging around. He typically has injuries at least once during the year, so that probably gave him a low ranking. For a 3rd RB, however, (I have to start 2), I trust his health enough.
8th Round – Patriots Defense – One of the better defenses, a steal at this round.
15th Round – Josh Scobee, Kicker, JacksonVille Jaguars – I don’t know much about this guy, but the fact that I waited until the last round is one of the smartest things I have done.

    One guy to keep your eyes on: the QB Schaub from Houston. He was Vick’s backup, and has a really accurate arm.
