Live Blog of my Fantasy Football Draft

–My first selection was KC running back Jamaal Charles. Obviously as a Chiefs fan, I had to take this guy since he was available. Hopefully he’ll stay away from injuries this year.

My first choice at QB is Matthew Stafford of the Detroit Lions. I feel like he’s going to put up big numbers this year if he stays away from injuries. Lions D is going to give him a lot of opportunities to score.

I just got Julio Jones. If anyone is going to score a lot of touchdowns, it’s this guy.

Sweet! Dwayne Bowe was still available. Alex Smith will be targeting him a lot this year. I sense a 2011-esque season for D. Bowe.

Blah… this is a tell tale sign that I’m an amateur drafter. I drafted Eli Manning without looking at his bye week. Apparently the New York Giants share a Bye week with the Detroit Lions. So I was forced to also pick Joe Flacco of the Ravens.

I also drafted Eddie Lacy… dude is gonna have a great season. Hopefully the rushing attack at Green Bay will be enough to gain me some points this year.

Also on the Packers is Jermichael Finley, might top tight end.

He will be switched out for Chicago Bears Tight End Martellus Bennett in week 9 (baring any injuries).

Gotta show some Seattle love. Welcome to my fantasy team Golden Tate.

I actually have no idea how good the Cincinnati Bengals defense is, or will be, but they’re my defense. Rawr.

Blair Walsh is going to be the first kicker not named Ryan Succup I’ve drafted in a couple years. Kicker is sneaky important in close fantasy football games, so hopefully the Minnesota Vikings PK can help me finish first this year.

Picked up Roy Helu and Jacoby Jones as good bench players, but hopefully I won’t have to use them.

Daniel Thomas is also another bench pick-up, showing some K-state love there. He was way too good in Manhattan, KS not to be a points gainer in the NFL.

Rounding out my team is Kansas City Chiefs Tight End Anthony Fasano. I picked this guy because of the recent injury to Tony Moeaki, and also I’ve seen him catch a few balls this preseason.

So here’s my Fantasy Football team, at least my first drafted team.

  • QB- Matthew Stafford, DET
  • RB- Jamaal Charles, KC
  • RB- Eddie Lacy, GB
  • WR- Julio Jones, ATL
  • WR- Dwayne Bowe, KC
  • TE- Jermichael Finley, GB
  • FLEX- Martellus Bennett, Chi (TE)
  • D/ST- Bengals
  • K- Blair Walsh, MIN
  • BE- Eli Manning, NYG (QB)
  • BE- Joe Flacco, BAL (QB)
  • BE- Golden Tate, SEA (WR)
  • BE- Roy Helu, WSH (RB)
  • BE- Jacoby Jones, BAL (WR)
  • BE- Daniel Thomas, MIA (RB)
  • BE- Anthony Fasano, KC (TE)

I’ll probably finish 3-10-3 again, but here’s to good fantasy NFL football.
