They play football

Postby awwchrist » Wed May 12, 2004 1:44 am

but they obviously DON'T play fantasy football.

Well, at least Steve Tasker and Dan Marino don't...evident by Tasker's 3rd round selection of Mark Brunell, and Marino's 4th round selection of Mike Vanderjagt.

I have found a piss me off pick for each round in the top 8:

1st: Harrison is good but isn't ahead of Moss
2nd: Steve McNair, he's consistant but 2nd round
3rd: Brunell before McNabb, put down the crackpipe Tasker
4th: Vandy, im speechless
5th: Jerry Porter, someone's got high hopes
6th: Duce Staley, he's starting people, why hasn't he been picked?
7th: Dallas Clark before McMike, Alge and Bubba hmmm
8th: There are 3, yes 3!, starting RBs left in the 8th? WTF

After this a lot of it is prefernce so they are all judgement calls but seriously guys what the hell were all of you smokin'?

Good lord; why was this even published?

Anyone who knows about fantasy football or has played it for any length of time has to see this as non-informative and/or good for a laugh. The only thing this serves to do is show why Dan and Boomer should stick to playing real football...but even worse was Tasker.

Dallas was the first defense taken, a full round before Baltimore and New England. Brunell in the 3rd is equally ridiculous. Tasker...what were you thinking? Oh, I forgot, you ran down the field and bashed your body into guys at top speed for over 10 years in the NFL. I understand now.

Vandy in the 4th is really early also.

The Randy Moss pick is also a little low and behind lesser players. That Gus dude should have made out like a bandit - then he picked TOM BRADY in the 3rd round??? :-B Other suspect picks were made, but I think he got really good value with CMart in the 7th round.

OK, I might not be a fantasy genius, but am I safe to assume a lot of QB's went WAY too early.

Final roster looks:
Marino's #2 RB is Tatum Bell...pretty confident I guess.
Two guys picked 4 QB's for their team! Is this a keeper league?
Brent Jones picked just about every rookie RB and WR. Previous question still stands.
One guy got Faulk, Rudi, and Henry, but his best WR's are K-Rob and Javon Walker...yikes.

If nothing else, the league is pretty even because no one knew what they were doing and they all have certain strengths and certain horrible weaknesses.

Yeah that's a pretty poor FANTASY draft. The only thing i can think of is they weren't drafting for fantasy, but for real life. Other than that maybe they just don't play fantasy, eg Marino.

The overtly commercial nature of this drivel makes me appreciate the Cafe all the more.

Whatever Marino does, the fact remains that:
He is and always will be richer than any 50 of us combined ;-)

It was the most questionable call of the 1st. I don't think Harrison is 1st round material. He's early-mid 2nd. Personally I wouldn't draft Moss in the 1st round either. But you can;t really argue with anyone picked in the 1st so I questioned that slappy.
