Fantasy Challenge for Charity

By August 21, 2011

Follow me on:

Recently yours truly was challenged to a battle of fantasy football experts, in which the winner's charity of choice will receive a generous donation from league organizer, Joe Dyken of FantasyFootballNerd.com. Team About Football, which has every intention of running away with the league, is playing for the American Diabetes Association. Besides myself and Joe, who is playing for Stand Up 2 Cancer, the league includes the following industry experts:

Dave Richard, Senior Fantasy Writer - CBSSports.com
Playing for CBS Interactive 2011 Light the Night -The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society

Sara Holliday - The Fantasy Football Librarian

The league draft was held early Sunday with Team About Football cashing in with the following roster:

Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay
Josh Freeman, Tampa Bay
Cam Newton, Carolina

Running Backs:
Chris Johnson, Tennessee
Peyton Hills, Cleveland
Fred Jackson, Buffalo

Wide Receivers:
Reggie Wayne, Indianapolis
Lee Evans, Baltimore
James Jones, Green Bay
Devin Hester, Chicago

Tight End:
Jermichael Finley, Green Bay

Green Bay
NY Giants

At this point, I'm a little thin at wide receiver, could use another solid running back, and have just one tight end.  But with three elite defenses, I've got some trade bait to work with.  I've also got my eye on sleepers at each of those position.  All in all I feel like I came away from the draft in a very solid position.

Good luck to the rest of the field.
