Found August 27, 2013 on Bacon Sports:
It’s Sunday night and it’s time for my draft, I check the order and I got the shaft. 3rd year in a row that I’m the ninth pick, Just one pick after Team “Eric’s a Dick.” I enter the draft and read all the names: Joke after joke it’s always the same. “Teblow” is first and selects A.P. Next is “Hernandez” then “Vick’s Dawgs” at three. My strategy is simple and I have no regrets: Don’t draft a soul from the Raiders or Jets. Running backs are sketch and are hard to replace. So I draft Tom Brady because he is a face. If “so and so” wins it would make me sick, After each selection he chats “terrible pick.” I claim that he studied two weeks in advance, As I go on a rant and spill beer on my pants. I filled the positions and I think that I’m fine. Turns out my whole team’s got a Bye on Week 9. By the tenth round I’m bored drafting D’s on the pooper. While some asshole decides to draft Riley Cooper. When the draft is all finished it’s the same deal. I get five different texts saying, “my team is unreal.” 50 bucks later with a roster I hate, I close my comp with a smile, and say “that was great.” Follow Eric on Twitter @DrStickStein to see more of his lyrical magic   YOU SHOULD LIKE BACON SPORTS ON FACEBOOK HERE   OTHER ARTICLES YOU MIGHT ALSO LIKE: A Sports Poem about the rise and fall of baseball A Sports Poem: If you don’t root for Tiger Wood, you’re an idiot A Sports Poem for all the Johnny Manziel Haters The NFL Preseason is just like Scrambled Porn The Ryan Mathews Mistake and 3 hyped players to avoid at your fantasy draft The post Your Fantasy Football Draft Is Like This appeared first on Bacon Sports.

Waiting On a QB: Applying This Strategy To Fantasy Auctions.

I’m sure around the fantasy football grapevine you’ve heard about the popular avant-garde draft strategy this year: wait to get your QB. I, personally, also uphold this strategy unless there is impeccable value in a later round (i.e. Tom Brady falling to the 7th). Waiting on your quarterback is a completely plausible angle to approach your draft with, and if you’re so inclined...
