Fantasy Football Drafting for My Sister: How’d I Do?

Fantasy football experts, assemble!

I want to get some opinions on the team I selected. I have not played fantasy football in two years. Reasons? Mostly my declining interest in the NFL as a whole but still wanting to watch the games without being influenced by “oh I have this guy on my team.” Even more than all that, though, I simply didn’t wanna.

But my sister asked me a few days ago: “I’ll be on a plane during my fantasy draft this year. Could you pick for my team?” Sure, why not. I am rusty, but I couldn’t be that bad. I mean, several other people chose kickers before the last round.

So I ask you now, people who play fantasy football, was I that bad? Let me know in the comments or on Twitter @JamesSantelli.
