Football... hahaha my fantasy football team.

So this is my first year playing fantasy football and I had NO IDEA what I was doing when I drafted my team.  For years my Donald and I play who can pick the best each season.  We take a schedule each week and choose teams.  We don't have to choose "sides", we can choose the same team and some weeks we almost do choose the same teams, but generally a few are different.  We each have "emotional ties" to a team here or there that leads us to pick with our heart and not our heads some times. 

Now my fantasy football team picks were an entire different story.  I know nearly nothing about individual players and haven't for years.  I spent 7 years in a previous career back in the mid 80s to early 90s working at a newspaper and just reading AP stories and listening to the sports writers and editor gave me "insight" to players and I had better educated opinions.  Hmmm I wonder if those old sports editors I worked with play fantasy football.

So how did I pick my team?  Well all my players are "cute".  Then I made the team color hot pink.  Then I named the team "Sinclair Shooters".  I figured if Vincent Hancock was a gold medalist "shooter" from Lake Sinclair then surely naming my team Sinclair Shooters would make me the winner this season. 

Do you think my strategy is sound?

Stranger things have happened!  Only my 2nd year at it myself, and I'm realizing there are a LOT of NFL players I don't know.  Real estate has taken a HUGE bite out of my sports watching time!

Bliz- 89 to 91 I just adored my sports editor I worked with at the paper and we hung out sometimes too.  I learned a lot, but I'm guesses all those guys are long retired and I watch NASCAR on Sunday until November. :)

Dorie- hey, what not pick on looks? LOL

Tammy - I'd probably use your method to pick my fantasy football team if I had one, but they'd wear purple.

Tammy, I think I would have to pick my fantasy team using the same criteria, LOL. I know less than you do, although when one mortgage guy was asking us to fill out what FB teams were going to win.... I would just check off any ole team, and I kept winning, LOL. I have a beautiful sweatshirt, some grilling tools, etc., to prove it. 

I know nothing, nothing, nothing about football... I admit it.

I think your criteria is as good as any I have heard.  Be very careful that stuff is highly addictive.  One of my sons is nuts and I think he runs one and belongs to a few others.  Of course if you were in his league and he knew your criteria, his hair would go on fire.
