Fantasy Draft Weekend is almost here

This weekend is my fantasy draft weekend. Two leagues. I have an idea on a sleeper pick or two. It is a guy who has not done allot in his career so far, but I am expecting him to have a breakout season. Cannot divulge his name right now because I don't want to give it away, but I believe my planning for this upcoming weekend is strong. I don't want to start counting the money yet, but those dudes are in for a fantasy beat down. Of course maybe not. Fantasy is definitely a skill, but it is also luck. Guys can get hurt, guys can let you down. You can make stupid decisions and lose that way. Last season I was in the Superbowl and chose to start Matt Ryan who ended up getting 5 fantasy points that Sunday. I had Rivers on the bench who went off for about 40, and instead of winning the first place money I had to settle for second place dollars instead.
Last year we had a run on Receivers earlier then they should have gone so you had to be ready to get one a little higher then you wanted to because they were just flying off the lists. You don't want to end up with Hank Basket as your top receiver even if it is fun to say biscuit in the Basket.
Don't want to drink to much either, Its kind of like Vegas when you are betting, drinking is encouraged but you should be wise. After I get a few beverages in me I swear that this is the year Antwaan Randle El is going to just flat out breakout. the dude is athletic and dynamic and I like the way he plays but each year I try to get him on my team later and later in the draft. Dudes mess with me about it, but I cant help it, I swear he is going to break out but each year he ends up being a nice enough receiver but nothing to really get as fired up about as I do.

My draft is Wednesday. I've spent zero time doing any kind of research. My team is going to suck this year.

As for 500 days, it's a good movie. Take a date.
