Today is the day once again. This year's fantasy football draft is only hours away. 2019 seems to be more confusing than years past. A lot of stars in the NFL have switched teams over the off season, and who knows what that does to the chemistry for those players. Will they be able to put up the same stats as they historically have with their past teams? Antonio Brown is a great example, in years past AB has been a solid choice as far as fantasy goes. He's always on the field and each week is a TD threat. Now he has moved to the Raiders and has an extremely questionable QB tossing him the ball. Who knows if AB is even a deep ball threat anymore? The Raiders were one of the worst in the league last year for that stat. Seriously though he is worth the gamble and will definitely be off the board in the second round.
Andrew Luck... What the hell happened man? You were expected to be one of the top QB's this year and you just quit out of nowhere. What else can you expect from a Stanford millennial? I mean, I wish you the best but, wow did you mess up the fantasy landscape with one decision. Granted it was a big decision and good for you, but what does this do to T.Y. Hilton's draft stock? Does this make Marlon Mack a RB that's going to get a ton of touches?
The Cleveland Browns are stacked with talent. Let that sink in for a quick second. There's so much talent on the offensive side of The Browns team that I'm not sure it's smart to draft their players too early. I mean seriously besides Baker Mayfield, and that is because this dude has so many studs to toss the pigskin to that he should always have an open man, which player do you choose to receive the majority of these passes? Both WR's Odell Beckham Jr and Jarvis Landry are #1 in the depth chart on almost any other team. The TE David Njoku is knocking on the door of being an elite TE. The RB's Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt are both poised for a great season and will be fighting each other for playing time. Well as soon as Kareem Hunt keeps his hands and feet to himself and just plays football. My thought process is stay away from all of them - besides Baker - who is the guy that truly gets to decide all of this.
Anyways, tonight is the night so wish me luck! Here's to hoping that whoever I draft first has a great year. Here's to hoping that I don't get one of the first three draft spots. I have a plan if I do get stuck with one of these spots, but wow does it get difficult to know what to do with that second round pick. Here's to hoping two or three people go in on a kicker or defense too early.
Here's to hoping I don't have too many brewskis at the Bennett house and make all these mistakes myself. If the past does a good job of predicting the future I will be in a safe place from drowning myself in I.P.A's. Although I have not yet figured out how many Truly or White Claws I can consume safely, so that might be a problem. By the way, what is up with this new wave of popularity for these kind of drinks? Aren't these equal to or lesser than a wine cooler? My bet is Andrew Luck is somewhere downing a White Claw right now.
