The Agony of a First Pick Going Down

There’s noth­ing harder and more ago­niz­ing than see­ing your first pick go down, get injured and be ruled out for the sea­son in Fan­tasy Foot­ball. It sucks. After pick­ing Tom Brady as my first pick, 11th in the Draft Order out of 12 peo­ple, and get­ting Randy Moss in the wrap around and my sec­ond pick, I thought I got the best I can per round at the time. But alas, that’s Fan­tasy Foot­ball for you, noth­ing is cer­tain and it can either be reward­ing or painful depend­ing on which side you are on.

So what’s next, well I will prob­a­bly try to pickup Cas­sel like every­one and their mom­mas are doing. I have a bad waiver pri­or­ity (10 out of 12) so I need to have a plan-B and plan-C just in case I don’t get that piece of the puz­zle. Other than the Raider’s O-line suck­ing vs. Denver’s Defense last night, JaMar­cus Rus­sell did a fairly good job for his first start of the sea­son. How­ever, it isn’t enough to ex me as hav­ing him as my start­ing QB.

Although, it is still early in the sea­son, and I have hopes for my Fan­tasy Foot­ball team to still make it to play­offs. I have played with a team that was on the very bot­tom out of 12 teams, and still man­aged to place and get dough at the end. This one just sucks as its caus­ing me at least 20pts. per week—Brady’s aver­age pro­jected Fan­tasy points.

Oh well, c’est la vie.

PS. I found out that Cas­sel went to Chatsworth HS, and played for the Chan­cel­lors. I guess its a sign mwahaha…
