I Came, I Drafted, I Buc-ed

New, 1 comment

My fantasy football team, The Ignorant Sluts, has been drafted, for better or for worse. Not sure what I think of its composition right now -- Chris Johnson: yay!; Jay Cutler: please don't suck; LaDainian Tomlinson: comeback time, baby -- but I have time to figure out how to best use the players I've got. This year's model has a hard act to follow, as last season Adrian Peterson, Ochocinco (does he even need a first name anymore?), Ray Rice and Matt Schaub all wore a virtual Ignorant Sluts jersey. Yes, I got very very lucky, although I like to think I was extremely savvy.

This season, I was prepared -- heck, I was ready -- to draft a Buccaneer. Loyalty to my favorite team and that "you-never-know" factor were my motivation. But Kellen Winslow went to my very good gal pal's team. OK. Check him off the list. Then Cadillac Williams was picked up by auto-draft and sent to another good friend's team. Hmmmmm. What to do, what to do.

With my pick in the last round, I added Mike Williams to the roster. He's my main Buccaneer for the year. I like carrying a rookie or two on my team, as it's fun having a little unknown factor in the mix.  Keeps things interesting.

So catch that ball Mike Williams, hold on to it and run run run! The Ignorant Sluts are counting on you.
