Fantasy Draft Results: The Money League

My second fantasy football team is for a league with many of my friends. I've known most of these guys since my days at Carteret High School in New Jersey, back in the early 90's. We're a pretty tight bunch, we stay in touch with one another regularly, and every year we take a trip together to a different city to see a ballgame or two and basically get drunk and have a fun time. We've been doing that for 4 years now.

But I digress. The purpose of this post is to reveal the draft results of my fantasy football team. This league carries a $100 entry fee and with 12 teams competing for the money (split across the top 4 in the winners bracket) it gets pretty fierce. Oh, and did I mention my wife plays also? She zipped out of work a couple hours early to accomodate the 7pm EDT draft time -- remember the Taylor ham discussion? We're all from Jersey.

Without further ado, the draft results for my team, currently named "Ranch Tooth" because I love those commercials.
  1. Edgerrin James, RB, Colts
  2. Trent Green, QB, Chiefs
  3. Marvin Harrison, WR, Colts
  4. Chris Brown, RB, Titans
  5. Darrel Jackson, WR, Seahawks
  6. Larry Fitzgerald, WR, Cardinals
  7. Chad Pennington, QB, Jets
  8. Buffalo, DEF, Bills
  9. Marcell Shipp, RB, Cardinals
  10. Ryan Longwell, K, Packers
  11. Jerramy Stevens, TE, Seahawks
  12. Dominic Rhodes, RB, Colts
  13. Chester Taylor, RB, Ravens
  14. Jesse Chatman, RB, Chargers
  15. Doug Jolley, TE, Jets

I got permission from my wife, Kristin, to post her draft results as well. For the second year in a row, because a league with 11 people would suck, she proudly calls her team "The Twelth Beotch". Yes, she is the token female in the group. I don't recall the order in which she drafted these players, so I'm just going down the list according to her roster. I know she snapped up Akers eye-raisingly early though.

  • Dominick Davis, RB, Texans
  • Rudi Johnson, RB, Bengals
  • Matt Hasselbeck, QB, Seahawks
  • Jerry Porter, WR, Raiders
  • Isaac Bruce, WR, Rams
  • Michael Pittman, RB, Buccaneers
  • L.J. Smith, TE, Eagles
  • David Akers, K, Eagles
  • Atlanta, DEF, Falcons
  • Brett Favre, QB, Packers
  • TJ Houshmandzadeh, WR, Bengals
  • Najeh Davenport, RB, Packers
  • Chris Perry, RB, Bengals
  • Keary Colbert, WR, Panthers
  • Minnesota, DEF, Vikings

There you have it. Three hours that I'll never get back. Live drafts are a lot of fun... if you're in the room. But when you're doing them via IM 3,000 miles away, they really suck. Big time. Anyway, feel free to post a comment rating our drafts and whose you think has a better shot.
