Yesterday we had our first live drafts which all ran fairly smoothly if you ignore Citizen Lucas’ wide receiver corps of Marshall, Chambers, and A. Gonz in one league. Expect more live drafts in the coming days.
I can’t wait for my first draft where I spend six hours on an elaborate draft strategy which then gets throw out the window when one of my man-crush receivers falls to me in the late second (Andre 1000 (Johnson), B-Eazy (Edwards) or Chad-Dog (Johnson)). Are those guys on everyone’s favorite players lists?
I was reading some article about draft strategy the other day – I think on footballguys.com which is a great site that we have zero affiliation to – and it explained that you can’t have “favorites” or “my guys” when you’re drafting since you won’t get them at their true value. OK, I understand this if you’re in a money league with $10,000 on the line (we don’t encourage or condone gambling of any kind (outside of Vegas)), but what’s the fun in passing up a guy you love rooting for just to get better value out of some chump like LenWhale?
I’m curious where Billy Beane will stand on this issue in our Celebrity League as someone who makes a living out of going by the facts and not the feelings. He can do it on the big stage for the Moneyball A’s, but can he keep a level head with Brooklyn Decker picking right after him? We’ll see…
That’s all for now.
