Team Grumpy Old Men...

Had my fantasy league draft tonight at Park Tavern in St. Louis Park. 14 guys, 14 rounds. I was number 11. Here's the winning team for this season. We start 1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 TE, 1 Flex (RB/WR/TE), kicker and defense.

QB's: Peyton Manning-Colts (#1 pick), Kyle Orton-Broncos
RB's: Ryan Matthews-Chargers, Arian Foster-Texans, Cadillac Williams-Buccaneers
WR's: Steve Smith-Panthers, Santana Moss-Redskins, Johnny Knox-Bears
TE's: Vernon Davis-49ers, John Carlson-Seahawks
K's: Ryan Longwell-Vikes, Adam Vinatieri-Colts
D's: Jets, Bears

Man that was a long evening. 3 hours to get through all the rounds. The highlight was trying a Surly Beer. I saw it on tap and thought I'd give it a try--just about dropped a load when the guy said it was $7.50. What the hell, it's a local beer, not like it was shipped in from Alaska. I don't know how to describe it; but, it was definitely not your average light beer.

Oh well. We'll see how long I get into the season before I unload one of these guys.


  1. The Jets and the Bears defense?
    You shouldn't have a problem with that position this season!
    I would, however, advise you to drop one of the kickers and pick up another RB or WR, you really only need one kicker, then grab another one at bye week.

  2. I thought about that; but by the last few rounds I was so tired of keeping track of everyone in the bottom 150 on my list that I said screw it, and just picked up the extra D and K. I'll probably do that once the season starts. KD

  3. Ryan Matthews was a very good pick, KD.

  4. i think the knox pick will ned up a good one,too.
    the orton pick is a safe bet for backup qb. he doesnt screw up much, but he's not gonna put 45 points on the board,either.
