It smells like football. It is just one of those smells that you can’t get out of your head. It is the smell of grass, sweat and leather. In just a couple of weeks the season will officially begin for me it is August 28th when the Reed City Coyotes take on the Baldwin Panthers in the home opener. It is time for another year of watching, screaming and scheming. Yes scheming because fantasy football is also on the horizon and I have to start making some decisions as it is a mere two weeks out from the NFL start and it is time to make some fantasy football decisions.
This year I have decided to only have one team. Last year I had three and it was a lot more work than I wanted. I had other things happening in the fall and it was just too much to keep track of all the time. I still had good success with two of my teams but this year with only one team I am going to really have to make good draft decisions and keep an eye on the little details. It should be a little more challenging.
This year I have decided the Rabyd Doggs from last year will be my name, They finished first in their league but had a rough playoff finishing only third in the championship. I am looking for a league with individual defensive players and good scoring options. I also would like a bigger league with sixteen teams at least and a live draft. I will have to start scouring NFL.com in the coming days. I want the draft to be after all the preseason games are over too.
It is fantasy football time.
