Before the season in my keeper league we had a trade where team A traded Andre Johnson to team B for Anquan Boldin, Anthony Thomas, and Courtney Anderson. Team B already had Moss and Holt and we start 5wr. There were a lot of complaints at the time, but now: A. Johnson-34 points, A. Boldin-228.2 points. The other 2 are back ups but this trade turned out to be good for the guy everyone thought got ripped.

I'm in a private league (16 man deep league, so drafting is crucial) and my brother in-law and his friend and I were talking about the number 1 pick and who we would take and it was between LT and Peyton Manning (at the time) and we drew to see what picks we got and my in-laws friend got #1... who does he say he wants and the over all #1 pick in a 16-Man 18 player league..... Drum roll...... more drum roll.....

A team aptly named "The Worst Team Ever" drafted Baltimore Defense in the first round. In a money league none the less. His 50 bucks has gone down the drain because he has yet to win a matchup yet.

This year.. someone took Trent Green with the 9th overall pick. I was absolutly amazed.

Some notables he passed on there:

D. McNabb
W. McGahee
C. Pepp
T. Owens
C. Johson

On a side note, released his 1st Round Pick (Green) to the waivers. No one is yet to pick him up. I am lovin' it.

Oh I forgot my draft disaster a few years ago.

After my first season playing fantasy football I decided that having Mark Brunnell as my QB the year before I needed to draft a good QB in the first round so I set my sites on Kurt Warner who of course was great at the time

Being in the UK draft times can be pretty awkward so the draft was set for 3 am UK time. I woke up and it came to my pick. I was a bit dozy due to lack of sleep but knew who I wanted

So with the 4th overall draft pick the Greenwald Packers pick....

Kurt Kittner :~(

From that season onwards I have decided to take the following day off work so I can stay awake all night....
