So I bought my first magazine for Fantasy Football on the 4th of July weekend. Might as well throw that thing away. Since then, there have been about 8 different convictions, suspensions and blown knees. All that studying and reading up on my sleeper picks can be flushed straight down the toilet. So much has changed already and we just only started Training Camp 2012.
You can sit on any bar stool in America and argue that Aaron Rogers should go before Arian Foster. Or maybe your cup of tea is a little slice of “Rice” from Baltimore. Whoever you think should go number 1 overall, chances are, you’re not getting that pick anyway, so start studying. I’d like to give you five pieces of advice for your upcoming draft(s).
Number 5. Read first. Don’t be the guy that takes Maurice Jones Drew with the 5th pick. He will still be in Montego Bay drinking umbrella drinks with his friends. You’d have better luck taking a free agent kicker.
Number 4. Stay away from Rob Gronkowski. I know he had 18 touchdowns, but he also had 36 drinks in da’ club the night they lost the Super Bowl. He’s a loose cannon with a loose ankle.
Number 3. No dancing. Victor Cruz and Steve Smith, NO SOUP FOR YOU! Yes, Cruz had 9 td’s and over 1,500 yards, but anyone who dances in front of Matt Lauer during the summer is sure to blow a wheel. Steve Smith is 49 years old. Enough said.
Number 2. Pick Peyton. Yes I said it, take number 18. If you are in a situation where Rodgers and Brees are gone, take PFM. John Elway said there is no Plan B. I believe him.
And the Number 1 piece of advice I can give you for your upcoming Fantasy draft…. Don’t start drinking at 3:00 if your draft starts at 7:00. Watch the movie Barfly. It doesn’t end well.
