fantasy football 2011

got dragged into yet another year of fantasy football, as i received not one, but TWO invites last week to take part. this past weekend was the 1st draft (the 2nd is coming in a week's time) and minutes prior i learned i was picking #1.

as it's a snake draft and being that there's 10 teams, i picked #1 in the first round, then #10 in the second (or #20 overall), so a lot of times you're forced into taking players ahead of where they project, because it's a long wait (19 picks) before i choose again.

that being said, i had 3 minutes to choose my #1 overall pick, so i narrowed it down to: QB michael vick, RB arian foster or RB adrian peterson. since vick would be hard-pressed to repeat last year's performance, and seeing how the vikes still don't have a QB (the corpse otherwise known as donovan mcnabb), i went with foster. here's how my squad ended up in order of round taken:

1. RB arian foster
2. WR hakeem nicks
3. WR greg jennings
4. TE antonio gates
5. QB matt schaub
6. RB knowshon moreno
7. WR stevie johnson
8. QB matthew stafford
9. RB daniel thomas (seeing as how i'm a dolfan)
10. RB joseph addai
11. D/ST chicago
12. WR pierre garcon
13. K neil rackers
14. RB jacquizz rodgers
15. WR eric decker

wish me luck!
