Fantasy Football Cage Match – The Season
So Awesome and The Legend are going to step into the Fantasy Football Cage Match. This time nobody is coming out…until the end of the year. You heard it. 16 Weeks of head-to-head matchups. We’ll find out who is the ultimate champion.
Awesome had the first pick in the two-team snake draft. Here’s how the rosters turned out (in order of round selected).

Strategy: So my basic strategy for this draft was to grab LT, and stack up on top WRs. That strategy went out the window when The Legend grabbed 4 WRs in Rounds 3-6, which left me scrambling. To compensate for that I didn’t take a QB, instead opting to draft RBs and WRs that were a little more risky but with bigger upside, like Andre Johnson or MJD, hoping that one or more of those guys overperforms their draft position and/or doesn’t get hurt, and ends up being closer to the top in scoring at their respective postion. Of course, it may not matter at all unless some of the studs get hurt or really underperform.
Strategy: In the first two rounds I went with the Killer RB Combo of AP and Westbrook to offset the LT dominance. With my next four picks I decided to stock up on Top End WRs since they come with less question marks than the Kickers. I turned to Romo because he easily could be the top fantasy QB this year. I added Lynch because he’s a dynamic young RB. Then I took Brees because I feel he’ll be playing more meaningful games at the end of the year than Romo. I grabbed Fitzy because he was the best available. I turned to a duo of RBs that get carries between the 20s as well as at the stripe. I then grabbed two top notch Tight Ends because I didn’t think I could wait on either one and have the top backup in a two-man league. Ithen took Jamal Lewis because he gets the ball between the 20s and at the stripe. I finished with MN D because they should be rock solid, especially when you consider the QBs they face. We didn’t take Kickers because they suck and we eliminated them.
