Starting Lineups: I Can’t Tell If My Fantasy Football Team Is Terrible Or Not; Please Help


On Wednesday night, while my two brothers in crime were doing God’s work in producing the internationally-acclaimed podcast The Unsportsmanlike Conduct Show, I was doing something that I deemed far more important and necessary in my life.

The fourth Annual ETSF Fantasy Football Draft was conducted at Mecklenburg Gardens in Cincinnati, Ohio.

I don’t think you all understand how hard it is to get 12 individuals in one room at the same, much less the 12 goons that I associate with. With that being said, big ups to the following goons: Scott F., Terrance, Doc, Jeff F., Scott S., JAG, King Phil, Esquire, Cool Black, Brian and Wisseh.

I hope you all finish in second place behind me.

Anyway, here are the results of last night’s festivities. I genuinely can’t tell if I have a dope as hell squad or a squad that’s just “eh.” Or possibly a terrible team. Check out my squad, starters in bold.

QB: Peyton Manning, Andrew Luck, Joe Flacco

RB: Ryan Mathews, Darren McFadden, Jammal Charles, Felix Jones

WR: Hakeem Nicks, Jeremy Maclin, Reggie Wayne, Sidney Rice

TE: Owen Daniels, Colby Fleener

Defense: Cincinnati Bengals

Kicker: Nate Kaeding

Please let me know in the comments section if I have a team worth a damn. Here’s your pertinent reading material for the day.

  1. Ed, not sure if you saw this or not, but ESPN is reporting that Peyton Manning threw an INT in his first preseason game. I’d cut him if I were you.

  2. straight no chaser… you better hope a couple of sleeper running backs pop up during the seson (keep your eye on doug martin down here in TB) ALL 3 of your starters are china-dolls (with one already breaking in matthews for 4-6 weeks)

    WR if nicks can stay healthy you should be fine

    I do love the fleener selection with you having Luck, that will be his security blanket so i can see him putting up good numbers.

    the bengals D will be a suprise as well.

    but saying all this, it still boils down to weekly match-ups and all you need is the right player to get hot and you can coast to victory

  3. Ryan Mathews already has a broken collarbone.

    I like Charles but ACL will limit his touches and Hillis will be goal line back

    Run DMC is a health risk but if he stays healthy you may be straight.

    You can get rid of Sidney Rice, he’s not going to play if they signed TO and Braylon Edwards

    Everything else looks pretty solid.

    Work the free agency pool.
