    Here’s to hoping everyone in your league forgot about Jermichael Finley…so you can grab him as your TE!

      He went #1 in round 5 in my first mock draft. 3rd overall of Tight Ends. I would have taken him if he dropped to my spot in round 5.

        Yeah actually I’m a little worried that no one actually forgot about him 🙂 I see that he’s pretty highly ranked in Yahoo as the #2 tight end!

      Unfortunately, one of the guys in our league is a die-hard Packers fan… I have almost no shot at getting him.

      In other news, I will be drafting from the 7th position (out of 10) this year… which hopefully means I won’t have to deal with having MJD on my roster.

        Would be awesome if Ray Rice dropped to you there

          I will be drafting in the same 7 spot and I am hoping for Ray-Ray to fall to me also! I think Rogers and Vick will get taken off the board before I even get to be next.

    Green Bay Packers win Super Bowl XLV 

    You already knew this, but I felt like it was necessary to mention their 31-25 victory over the Steelers last night if we wanted to maintain any notion that we were a football blog.

    It also lets me start posting non-Super Bowl related things, since we’ve now moved on to bigger and better things…like the chance of having NO football next year…or the Patriots winning the next Super Bowl!

    Just a couple thoughts on the big game though…

    • I feel bad for Christina Aguilera.
    • Greg Jennings’ post-game interview was awkward to watch/listen to. Seemed he was trying to remember the lines that he memorized before the game or something.
    • I may be in the minority of those who found the Justin Beiber / Ozzy Osbourne commercial funny

    Obligatory Super Bowl survey 

    Because fantasy football in most of its forms for the 2010-11 season is over and because you probably don’t want to bet on how long the National Anthem (sung by Christina Aguilera) will last, here’s a free bet you can make on who will win the big game!

    Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.

      I would prefer neither.

    Did it take anyone else more than a few seconds to realize that the guy on the main Yahoo fantasy football page actually played in the NFL (and not for a college team?) Their top waiver wire pick-up for the week (here are ours) is James Starks, the new running back for the Green Bay Packers, but since it was throwback uniform day, they were sporting these stylish uni’s

      So who to pick up now that Goodson is injured and clearly second-fiddle to Stewart?

      Starting Foster every week unless he goes down, but no one else is matchup-proof: Have Rice, LT (whose best last good game may be tonight) and Blount. I like CHoice, thinking about adding him for his Week 15 date with WAS and maybe even wk 16 @ ARI. (hopefully will make it to wks 15 & 16….). I like Starks too, but hesitant to trust a rookie with my season. What do you all think?

      Also – D/St for next week – Atlanta (@Car) or Denver (@Ari)?

        Be careful with Choice. Make sure you check on Barber’s progress. With Jerry Jones running the show (along with the fact that he is NEVER wrong), you just never know.

      I thought the regular uniforms got ruined and they had to grab something from one of the local high schools in order to field a team. I was surprised that everyone had different numbers! Simply hideous!!

    Brett Favre traded to the New York Jets 

    I’m sure tonight Jeff Garcia can sleep a little bit easier, knowing that he is still the starting quarterback for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. I wish I could say the same for Chad Pennington and Kellen Clemens though, who saw their dreams of leading the New York Jets to another disappointing season come crashing down when the Packers traded Brett Favre to the Jets last night for a conditional draft pick. Actually, with the signing, it could be the end of the Pennington era in New York, as the team will most likely release one of its quarterbacks to make room for Favre (they probably don’t want to carry four quarterbacks). All I know is: A) I’m excited to see some Favre versus Brady match-ups (as long as the Pats win!), B) Matt is slightly sad as now that the Bills have less of a chance to win the wild card (they’ll probably lose twice to the Jets), C) I’m sooooo glad that Manny and Favre are finally on new teams and we don’t have to hear about it every minute of every day on ESPN, and D) while I’m excited to see Favre/Brady, John Madden is already having wet dreams about it…even more than when Brady plays against Manning.

    So after the dust settles, we can take a look at how this move will affect the fantasy value of the players involved:

    Brett Favre, QB, NYJ: The move immediately makes Favre a top 10 quarterback in our power rankings (#9), right above Eli Manning. It could take him some time to get used to the new system, but I’m sure he’ll survive and put up some starter quality numbers from your QB1 slot. All of those who took a chance on Favre in fantasy drafts before this morning are probably pretty excited (including us…as we took him in the 12th round of our Fantasy Website Drunken Pirate Slapfight Expert League!) (More …)

      Now I officially love our Favre pick in the expert league.
