Back in September I made a video detailing how I hated fantasy football. How I declared that this was the last year I would play fantasy football. If you don’t remember that video, I’ve added it below.
Well I would like to announce (on this blog that is. I’ve said it a bunch of times on twitter) that I actually won the twitter fantasy football league created by +John Davis. How did I win? Well there are certain things you have to understand to win your fantasy football league. The most important thing to understand is…hahaha. I’m just kidding. A few months ago I hated fantasy football because I sucked at it. I would say I won because of the luck of the draw. The players I had got hot at the right time. I would compare my fantasy team this year to last years NY Giants.
Here’s my roster at the end of the season. I’ve changed players a few times but I can’t really remember the players I cut. I do remember adding Alfred Morris though which was a great thing for me.
QB: Eli Manning & Tony Romo
RB: Adrian Peterson & Alfred Morris & Trent Richardson & Vick Ballard
WR: Calvin Johnson & Dez Bryant & Justin Blackmon
TE: Jermaine Gresham & Martellus Bennett
K: Matt Prater (had Mike Nugent all season until he got hurt)
My record was 7-6. Coming into week 10 I was 3-6. I lost weeks 7, 8, and 9 and I wasn’t too happy about it. Then the winning streak began. Then 159 points during Thanksgiving weekend happened. I had 90 something points on Thanksgiving day alone! Then Ohio State beat Michigan. Oh…that doesn’t have to do with fantasy football? Oops 🙂 Then I had to win the last regular season game just to make the playoffs.
What I’ve learned is to win fantasy football, just have the players on your team that are gonna get hot at the right time. I’m sure that’s easy, right?
Now I know in the video I said I was not going to play next year but I feel like they will make me so that they can “beat the champ”. So I guess I’m at least playing one more year. I better at least make the championship game. Then I could get there 3 years in a row. Come to think of it, maybe I don’t suck at fantasy football as much as I think. At least until next September.
