Well, in two hours from the time I type these words, I will be off to Las Vegas for my15th annual fantasy football draft. I am in a 10 team auction style league with my fraternity brothers of yesteryear. For any of you who have not had the privilege of participating in an auction style draft, let me be brief….. you are missing out, big time. We switched to the auction style draft about 4 years ago, and it is by far the best, and most fun way to conduct your league.
The purpose of this post is to ask you Chiefs fans who are in fantasy football leagues the following: Will you draft a Chiefs player, and if so when, or for how much?
Personally, I will take Mr. Matt Cassel, Mr. Larry Johnson, and Mr. Dwayne Bowe if the price is right. I suspect that Dwayne Bowe will be going for more than I want to pay, since there is a lot of buzz surrounding him. I have a feeling that the Chiefs will be behind in most games this year, so the passing game will be our primary way of moving the ball. As such, Matt Cassel and Dwayne Bowe should prosper very well. Mr. Johnson is another story. I have a feeling he is going to have a good year, however, if we are behind most of the time, he won’t be utilized. Should his price be low, as I suspect, I will take him as my fourth RB or fifth RB.
