Fantasy Football Friday

Fantasy Football Friday

Well, I have good news for you. If you’re reading this, it means that you’ve made it to the end of another working week. Hooray!


Tonight, I’m supposed to be doing a 4 mile run. But the rain is lashing down. The wind is howling. I have stuff to do, so I’m chickening out rearranging my training schedule slightly. Besides, I have wine that needs to be consumed 😉


Actually, I have housework to do. And packing.  THEN it will be wine o’clock.

I can’t believe that football season is almost upon us already, and it’s fantasy draft time this weekend!


I’ve been in a fantasy league for 9 years. This year, @TheWelshWookie and I are in a different league, so my 10th season will also feel like a new start, in many ways. We’ve also moved from ESPN to NFL. So, as part of these changes, I’ve been reviewing my past draft strategies, and working out what has, and hasn’t gone so well in the past. Most years, I’ve gone for some form of handcuff deal, and it’s probably worked out well 75% of the time. As we have a new league, we’re starting with no keepers, which seems odd. I’ve had Wes Welker as a keeper since forever, so it’ll be weird not starting with him automatically on my team!

Here’s some of my prep scribbles so far….. no peeking too closely, now!


Bring on Sunday, I can’t wait!

On running related matters, my bib and medal hanger arrived…… woo hoo!


I’m just deciding where the best place is for it to go.

And my Nike+ FuelBand has conked out on me, so I’m a little disappointed about that. I’m hoping the Nike Store will exchange it this weekend.

Today’s Life Lesson: sometimes good folks really do think alike 😉

Are you a football fan? Do you play fantasy football?

      1. This is the first year I’m taking both quite seriously… Most years I’m pretty focused on one or the other. We’ll see which one wins!

  1. Love your medal and bib boards – new reader here, can I ask where you got them from? Not much into football, but I am into wine. It’s quitting time here (I work from home) and have just poured myself a lovely glass of red!! Bring on the weekend (bonus, Monday’s a holiday here in Canada 🙂

    1. Enjoy both the wine and the long weekend!
      The boards are from – the company is called runningonthewall and they’re based somewhere in The States. I love mine already! 🙂

  2. I am so excited for football this year. We finaly got the nfl sunday ticket which I am completely enthralled with because I can rarely watch my team where I live without going to a bar. Instead the bar will be my house. Much better.

  3. Hey TartanJogger,

    I am also extremely excited for fantasy football! I have my draft on Sunday. I am new to WordPress and would love if you checked out my blog. I am going to be releasing rankings very soon that maybe you can use when you draft.
