The Fantasy Diaries: Volume 2

In my first entry, I brought you my first team, the Bel Air Fresh Princes. Now I bring you my second:

Team #2: The Providence Kool Thing, The FanNation Fantasy Football League

The FanNation Fantasy Football League is a 16-team league (never do it) with 19-man rosters and the following starting lineup:


Kudos to the genius that thought that up. Also, my computer kept screwing up so I was the victim of autopick on many a draft choice. So, without further adue, here is The Providence Kool Thing:

Marc Bulger, St. Louis Rams, QB: Second round pick. In St. Louis with a high powere offense. Plenty of weapons in Holt, Bruce, Bennett, Jackson, and McMichael.

Brett Favre, Green Bay Packers, QB: Middle round pick. A solid backup. Should be able to fill in admirably if Bulger happens to go down.

Matt Schaub, Houston Texans, QB: Victim of autopick. No clue why I have him. Looking to trade him. If you're in FN FFL and are interested, let me know. Looking for a WR.

Steven Jackson, St. Louis Rams, RB: First round pick. A stud. Hopefully he will reach his goal of 2,500 yards from scrimmage. He can run and he can catch.

LaMont Jordan, Oakland Raiders, RB: Middle round pick. A bit of a sleeper in my book. He was first round material last year, but his stock fell after floundering in Oakland. Sure, the Raiders brought in Dominic Rhodes, but Rhodes is out for the first four games, giving this University of Maryland alum time to shine.

Brandon Jackson, Green Bay Packers, RB: Middle round pick. An ok pickup in my opinion. Jackson goes into camp splitting time with Vernand Morency, but it appears that Jackson may have the starting job. Good news for me.

Maurice Morris, Seattle Seahawks, RB: Another victim of autopick. Filled in pretty well while Shaun Alexander was out last year. Should perform well if he goes down this year. Any Shaun Alexander owners interested?

Lorenzo Booker, Miami Dolphins, RB: Autopick. I don't really have anything to say except that there are worse backs out there.

Donald Driver, Green Bay Packers, WR: Third round pick. Should produce well if he is healthy. Packers coach Mike McCarthy said that he should be ready by Week 1.

Darrell Jackson, San Francisco 49ers, WR: Autopick. Might perform well. Semi-reliable target for Alex Smith. A few good games here and there.

Joe Jurevicius, Cleveland Browns, WR: Autopick. Jamal Lewis, Braylon Edwards, and Kellen Winslow are the focal points of this offense, so I expect this former Tampa Bay Buccaneer to get some table scraps.

Billy McMullen, Minnesota Vikings, WR: Late round pick. C'mon, he was the best available. A 6'4", 215 lb target sounds pretty good to me, but there is a downside: he plays in Minnesota and virtually has no experience.

Demetrius Williams, Baltimore Ravens, WR: Few people outside of Baltimore know of him, but he had a few good games last year. The third WR in the Ravens' offense, Williams should get some looks as Derrick Mason fades.

Daniel Graham, Denver Broncos, TE

David Martin, Miami Dolphins, TE: Mid-late round pick. Cam Cameron likes his TEs. Ever hear of a guy named Gates? Martin is no Gates, but he showed flashes of brilliance in Green Bay.

Donald Lee, Green Bay Packers, TE: Late round pick. A sleeper who could develop if Bubba Franks cannot shake his case of the drops.

Denver Broncos, D/ST: Middle round pick. Not a great defense, but a solid defense. Very good secondary.

Miami Dolphins, D/ST: Late round pick. A sleeper defense, with Jason Taylor and Zach Thomas racking up the stats.

Shayne Graham, Cincinnati Bengals, K

So there you have The Providence Kool Thing.
