This year I’m entering a fantasy football league for the first time and can already see it’s going to take up a lot of time. Just putting together my draft board requires ton of research and careful consideration.
One guy who I am going to go all out for is Alfred Morris. He graduated from my alma mater (FAU) and was a sixth round draft pick last year who had an outstanding rookie year. He has single handedly put my school on the map both as an NFL star (though we have three other players in the league) and as a role model in his community.
I love that he throws up the Hoot Salute (we’re the FAU Owls) after he scores a touchdown. The hoot salute is when you make owl eyes with your fingers:
Another guy I’ll be going all out for is Aaron Rodgers, but that’s for completely different reasons. I mean obviously he’s the best QB in the league … and he’s also the cutest QB in the league ;).
I doubt I’ll win my fantasy league this year since it’s my first year and outside of the Dolphins I don’t know a ton about all the other players, but it will be a fun learning experience!
Do you play fantasy football at all? Who are your top draft picks this year?
Which is your favorite college or NFL team?
