The One, The Wack- Willy.

Fantasy Football (Because why not?)

So I figured I’d do some sleuthing about and compile a Fantasy team filled with some good yet underrated players. Well, and some backups I got because my first picks got nabbed.

I logged in to the NFL browser/app and started compiling evidence earlier before my draft, also logging onto the draft earliest- netting me the sacred first pick for every other round. You could say I played it right. So the following are my choices as well as hopes riding upon their shoulders that they can do better than promised last year, despite most doing well or showing promise for the future…

Also, as an ode to my Tumblog, my fantasy sign-in name is Wacky Willy. Yep, that’s me. And my team name is Blazing Saddles because why not?

In the QB position I have the extremely underrated (especially after a very strong performance last year) Phillip Rivers.

As a 2nd String QB and Bench Backup I have the talented, if flawed Alex Smith.

My first man in the RB slot is none other than the power player Jamaal Charles, because even an underrated team needs some shoe-in excellent point earners.

I originally had the equally talented Marshawn Lynch scoped out for my backup RB, however he was taken already before my time came to choose during that round so I settled for Andre Ellington.

My third RB and also a convenient placement on the Bench is none other than the recently traded Knowshon Moreno.

In the realm of wide receivers, I have several starting picks- among which are the talented Wes Welker and Larry Fitzgerald.

On the Bench I have the equally talented and promising Anquan Boldin and Eric Decker, also recently traded.

My starting TE is Carolina’s own Greg Olsen, while my backup and Bench-sitter is Houston’s Garrett Graham.

For my extra wide-out or running back slot, I chose to play dangerously and go with longtime 49ers RB Frank Gore.

As my starting Kicker I have the reliable Adam Vinatieri with a good, solid backup Bench player in Jay Feely.

And rounding these things out is my pick for overall team Defense which was originally going to be the surprisingly explosive Carolina Panthers D, yet due to draft circumstances ended up as the still decent defense of the Denver Broncos.

For a little more information here, if you’d like to know my train of thought, here are some near misses that I wanted yet couldn’t grab in time.

RB: Marshawn Lynch, Pierre Thomas.

WR: Julius Jones.

TE: Antonio Gates.

DEF: Carolina Panthers.

Anyway, best of luck to all this football season- whether you’re watching, playing, or wishing you were playing. I enjoy playing and watching sports, so now I suppose I will enjoy my sports fantasies as well.

To that guy on Twitter who said that Robin Williams is just waiting for us to roll a 5 and get him out of the Jumangi game, I love you as a human being.

That is all.

It’s hilarious that non-Americans on Tumblr are all like “OMG DENNY’S TUMBLR MAKES ME WISH I LIVED IN AMERICA SO I COULD EAT THERE,” while us Americans will literally only eat at Dennys if it’s 3 in the morning and we’ve lost control of our life.

You don’t go to Denny’s. You end up at Denny’s.

You don’t want to know the things I’ve witnessed in a Denny’s parking lot at 3 am.

Good god it’s…it’s…inhumane.

Nah I’m just playing, but for real- that breakfast line is…erm…yeah.
