The New England Fantasy Football League

The New England Fantasy Football League is a 30-years old fantasy football league. Over the decades, some of the members have become as tough as any experts you might care to name and others not so much. When it comes to fantasy football, I have not had nearly as much success as I have had in baseball but I put in the work (around my extensive baseball prep anyway). This is a 14-team league that starts 1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE, 1 DEF, 1 PK, a RB, WR, TE Flex, and a QB, RB, WR, TE Flex (that essentially turns this into a two QB league) and a Head Coach. I am not a huge fan of picking a head coach. If your coach wins, you get three points but if he loses, you are penalized 3 points. Though I started out in this league, I have not been a member in a few years for financial reasons. I went through a period of off and on employment the last few years and this league has a significant entry fee. However, my day job is secure and I am looking at the money in four baseball leagues so I figured to get back in when the opportunity arose.

My strategy going in was to build up depth at running back and wide receiver. I would wait on a QB until the middle rounds and grab two that I liked. As you will see things did not work out as I anticipated. Quarterbacks flew off the board and I twice underestimated how quickly they were disappearing and had to act just to give myself a chance at two decent ones. My running back depth also is not what I was hoping for and I will need to work the waiver wire hoping to strike gold. I still think I can win. My receivers are deep and good and in this league, I could start five of them and just two running backs. My QB1 is a favorite of mine and I think he will have a huge season with a souped up offense. I picked three QBs and I think the rookie I selected could be a fast riser this season.

You will find the draft reproduced below. Watch how quickly the quarterbacks disappear. Comment and let me know what you would done differently. Yes, I had the first pick of the draft.
