My 2008 Fantasy Football Keeper League
OK, so I did my draft on Sunday, August 10th. I don’t know why we did it so early, but that’s another conversation. It’s an eight-man Keeper League that is in its third go round. My Keepers were Larry Johnson, Marshawn Lynch, and Andre Johnson.
Here’s how my draft played out:
Round 4: Wes Welker – Nearly impossible to cover. I still say if he caught 20 passes the Pats would have won the Super Bowl last year. The G-Men had no answer for him.
Round 5: Jonathan Stewart – LJ insurance. Could be my keeper next year.
Round 6: Roy Williams – Big, strong WR. Great value as a 3rd WR.
Round 7: Chris Chambers – Great 4th WR. I expect a solid year for him in SD.
Round 8: Edge – Value pick. Insurance in case Stewart isn’t ready to be my main backup.
Round 9: Jerricho Cotchery – Until Favre signed I didn’t put him on a great year. With Favre, he could be special.
Round 10: Matt Hasselbeck – It was time to grab a QB before I had major concerns at the position.
Round 11: Felix Jones – Insurance pick. Could be huge if MB3 got hurt.
Round 12: Donald Driver – Old Reliable. Could be Aaron Rodgers safety net.
Round 13: Owen Daniels – With the big four taken early, I waited and got a value pick.
Round 14: Marc Bulger – Backup with Starter potential.
Round 15: Vernon Davis – Could have great year with Martz’s offense.
Round 16: Jacksonville Defense – Good, tough D.
Round 17: Phil Dawson – Kicker for high-powered Offense. If they aren’t as good in the Red Zone next year, I could be Golden.
