  • Footballguy contributor 2001

  • In 5 years of playing Money leagues, my return has always at least doubled the entry fee.
  • 2 Championships, Once beaten finalist.

  • Win 1 out of 2 free leagues every year, but who can’t do that?
Keys to FF Success:
  1. Never be afraid of other peoples laughter when drafting.
  2. Do not believe in a stud RB, WR or QB theories. ALWAYS pick the best player available, who will not be there for your next pick.
  3. Take risks, but cover your risks.
  4. The guy who makes the safest picks, usually finishes in the middle of the table.
  5. ALWAYS check the last minute news before submitting roster lineups
  6. Make every selection count
  7. Know your opponents. Study their drafting habits, trading habits etc. Find out who makes stupid trades and get in early. Find that homer who can’t resist getting their star player etc
  8. Never give up on a season
  9. Play hard, but fair.
  10. If you have family, remember them come Football season.

Pre-Game Ritual: Eat before Game time. Kiss the children and wife goodnight, they ain’t seeing me for awhile

Favorite Players:

Randy Moss: - Capable of breaking what seemed impossible, some of Jerry Rice’s records. Freakishly talented. Awesome to watch when he is on.

Jim Brown: - The man looks like he could still play. Imagine having this guy on your fantasy squad when he was in his prime.

Peyton Manning: - Class.

If I were Paul Tagliabue for a day I would:

Best Call of 2001: Getting Priest Holmes in the 7th round

Worst Call of 2001: Thinking Isaac Bruce would outscore Torry Holt

Redraft or Keeper: A restricted keeper, a maximum of 2 or 3 players ensures enough good players are still available.
