The Fantasy Diaries: Volume 3

Now I bring you my third team:

Team #3: DOCTORx Cool, FanNation Elite, ESPN

FanNation Elite is a six-team league that also had an individual defensive players involved. Made it very interesting. The starting lineup for the team is as follows:

1 QB
2 RBs
3 WRs
2 TEs
2 DTs
2 DEs
3 LBs
2 CBs
2 Ss
1 K

Pretty ambitious. I expect some high scoring matchups. So here is my roster:

Marc Bulger, St. Louis Rams, QB

Jon Kitna, Detroit Lions, QB

Larry Johnson, Kansas City Chiefs, RB

Willis McGahee, Buffalo Bills, RB

Thomas Jones, New York Jets, RB

Jerious Norwood, Atlanta Falcons, RB

Marvin Harrison, Indianapolis Colts, WR

Donald Driver, Green Bay Packers, WR

Randy Moss, New England Patriots, WR

Santonio Holmes, Pittsburgh Steelers, WR

Matt Jones, Jacksonville Jaguars, WR

Vincent Jackson, San Diego Chargers, WR

Kevin Curtis, Philadelphia Eagles, WR

Alge Crumpler, Atlanta Falcons, TE

Vernon Davis, San Francisco 49ers, TE

Greg Olsen, Chicago Bears, TE

Cullen Jenkins, Green Bay Packers, DT

Luis Castillo, San Diego Chargers, DT

Kris Jenkins, Carolina Panthers, DT

Aaron Schobel, Buffalo Bills, DE

Derrick Burgess, Oakland Raiders, DE

Dwight Freeney, Indianapolis Colts, DE

Terrell Suggs, Baltimore Ravens, LB

DeMeco Ryans, Houston Texans, LB

A.J. Hawk, Green Bay Packers, LB

Ernie Sims, Detroit Lions, LB

Antoine Winfield, Minnesota Vikings, CB

Charles Woodson, Green Bay Packers, CB

Madieu Williams, Cincinnati Bengals, CB

Adrian Wilson, Arizona Cardinals, S

Dawan Landry, Baltimore Ravens, S

Reggie Nelson, Jacksonville Jaguars, S

It would be too much to write something about each player, so I am going to go position by position:

Quarterbacks: A good starter in Bulger and a solid backup in Kitna. The man did have 4,000 yards passing last year and is in Mike Martz's offense, so anything is possible.

Runnings Backs: Above average. Norwood can easily fill in if Johnson struggles early. McGahee and Jones could be studs if they produce.

Wide Receivers: Very good. Two top ten WRs in Harrison and Driver and then another top twenty WR in Moss. Good options off the bench with Holmes, Jones, Jackson, and Curtis.

Tight Ends: Could be good if Harrington and Crumpler clicks, Davis has a breakout year, and Olsen has the impact I think he will have.

Defensive Tackles: Actually a good haul. Cullen Jenkins is a DE in real life, so that should provide a boost in the stats.

Defensive Ends: Schobel is overlooked while Burgess is solid. Freeney is a question mark (only 5.5 sacks last year) and I actually picked him up late in the draft. Bargain?

Linebackers: Cha-ching. The strength of my defense. Young, but talented.

Corners: Average. Winfield is a great tackler while Woodson makes plays. Williams is a safety in real life, so another boost to the stats.

Safeties: Above average. Wilson is a stud, while Landry gets plenty of opportunities on the Ravens D. Nelson could come in handy.

So there we have it. DOCTORx Cool of FanNation Elite.
