My Fantasy Football Teams

So I'm in 2 different fantasy football leagues this season, and I've just wrapped up my drafts. Both were live drafts, which I really enjoyed.

In the first league, which is a PPR format that's 12 teams deep, here's my starting roster:
  • Aaron Rodgers, QB, Green Bay Packers
  • Maurice Jones-Drew, RB, Jacksonville Jaguars
  • Tim Hightower, RB, Washington Redskins
  • Cedric Benson, RB, Cincinnati Bengals
  • Lee Evans, WR, Baltimore Ravens
  • Vincent Jackson, WR, San Diego Chargers
  • Mike Williams, WR, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
  • Jermichael Finley, TE, Green Bay Packers
  • Josh Brown, K, St. Louis Rams
  • San Diego Chargers, Defense/Special Teams
My bench for this team is:
  • Joe Flacco, QB, Baltimore Ravens
  • Zach Miller, TE, Seattle Seahawks
  • Deion Branch, WR, New England Patriots
  • Kevin Boss, TE, Oakland Raiders
  • Thomas Jones, RB, Kansas City Chiefs
  • John Beck, QB, Washington Redskins
Honestly, I'm ambivalent about starting Lee Evans over Deion Branch or Zach Miller, and I'm willing to bet real money that Thomas Jones & John Beck are waiver wire casualties before the end of the week.

In the second league, which is a standard format (minus return yardage) that's 16 teams deep, here's my starting roster:
  • Drew Brees, QB, New Orleans Saints
  • Brandon Lloyd, WR, Denver Broncos
  • Dez Bryant, WR, Dallas Cowboys
  • Peyton Hillis, RB, Cleveland Browns
  • Tim Hightower, RB, Washington Redskins
  • Jimmy Graham, TE, New Orleans Saints
  • Aaron Hernandez, TE, New England Patriots
  • Josh Brown, K, St. Louis Rams
  • Houston Texans, Defense/Special Teams
My bench for this second team is:
  • Daniel Thomas, RB, Miami Dolphins
  • Sam Bradford, QB, St. Louis Rams
  • James Starks, RB, Green Bay Packers
  • Mike Williams, WR, Seattle Seahawks
  • Greg Little, WR, Cleveland Browns
  • Marcel Reece, RB, Oakland Raiders
Yeah, some of these bench picks are reaches, but in such a large league, what choice have I got? I did end up with Hightower and Brown on both of my teams, which may be more of a reflection of my idiosyncratic strategy than an overarching faith in these particular players.

I really can't wait for real football to start...
