Week 1 of the NFL has kicked off so you know what that means… Fantasy Football time!
I returned this year to defend my crown. Last year a blockbuster trade where I sent Philip Rivers and for Cam Newton and Shonn Greene. The trade worked out and put my Fantasy Football team back in the hunt and at playoff time, they did not disappoint.
This year Cam Newton was not available when it came to my 7th overall pick so I took Tom Brady. This will be my first year coaching the three-time Superbowl championship quarterback. I have won a league championship with Peyton Manning but never had Brady before.
Here’s my final roster for our 2012 Fantasy Football league:
Team: Denver Gold
QB’s: Tom Brady, Philip Rivers
RB’s: Maurice Jones-Drew, Benjarvus Green-Ellis, Shonn Greene, Jonathan Stewart
WR’s: Greg Jennings, Andre Johnson, Julio Jones, Greg Little, Laurent Robinson
TE’s: Vernon Davis, Brent Celek
Kicker: Matt Prater
Defense: Steelers, Lions
I have played fantasy football leagues at Yahoo, NFL, and ESPN, this year we are once again using ESPN. Here is a snapshot of my week 1 opponent.
I’m already down 18 points since the Bombers had two players starting in last nights game, Victor Cruz and DeMarco Murray.
Are you ready for some fantasy football!
