I know I keep violating all the rules of sports blogging by posting about my fantasy teams, but in case anyone does actually care, I’m putting up a page for them.
I drafted two more teams this weekend (CBSSports.com Silver, if anyone’s familiar with that format), and I’m pretty happy with both of them. One of them, where I drafted fifth and got my second-best overall player (Frank Gore) and three of my top 7 receivers, made me particularly happy. I drafted 10th (of 12) in the other league and ended up with a high-risk/high-reward QB (McNabb), a couple of solid backs (Maroney and McGahee), and a few other guys I like from my other team.
The fantasy sports page will be the home of my teams from here on out, unless I have a particular tidbit that seems worth sharing on the main page.
For now, I will share my predicted points per game for the teams in each league that I drafted this weekend, based on my projections. My team is on top in both leagues, but you can see that the margin is slim in the league where I drafted 10th. I wasn’t happy about that slot, and the other owners were good enough not to let someone like Brian Westbrook fall to me there. The numbers in parentheses are (division/draft slot), with three divisions in each league. The division winners plus one wild card will make the playoffs.
1. Coach’s Challengers (1/10) – 95.6
2. Scaly Men-Fish (2/6) – 94.0
3. Trips1 (3/5) – 87.9
4. Junkyard (3/3) – 86.6
5. Hanablasters (3/2) – 86.4
6. Gridiron Gods (2/7) – 82.4
7. Hitmen3 (1/8) – 82.32
8. Ballome (1/1) – 82.29
9. Budweiser (3/9) – 81.6
10. Jackson Pollocks (2/4) – 81.4
11. MGD Twisters (1/11) – 77.4
12. Big Blue (2/12) – 76.5
1. 4th and Goal (1/5) – 99.1
2. Nashville Crackheads (1/1) – 86.6
3. Highly Poisonous Yak Vipers (2/6) – 86.5
4. Dominating Measures (3/10) – 85.9
5. Killer Bs (1/8) – 85.622
6. Jordan’s Patriots (3/4) – 85.621
7. Freedom Fighters (1/2) – 84.0
8. 86 The Competition (2/11) – 83.8
9. Lazy Azn (2/9) – 83.3
10. Leatherfaces (3/7) – 81.0
11. Riverhawks (2/12) – 79.0
12. The Longest Day (3/3) – 78.8
UPDATE: Doug’s projections are below, as mentioned in the comments. The columns are: draft slot, points per game, wins, losses, ties, and chances for winning the division, wild card, making the playoffs, having the best regular season record, having the most regular season points, and winning the championship. I must point out that these are based on my points per game projections, and not his.
|4th & Goal||5||99.1||9.5||4.4||0.2||67.4||14.8||82.2||48.9||76.6||37.5|

Feel free to post my simulated playoff/championship/wins projections if you want.
Also, Chris Cooley for 2007 NFL MVP! (He’s the only guy I have in all three leagues.)
I have Cooley in my other league, and I targeted him in both of ours. I’ll edit the post to show your projections and put everything in a neat table.
I can’t think of Chris Cooley anymore without this mental image:
