Are you a fantasy football homer like me?

Postby cmc728 » Fri Aug 17, 2007 7:33 am

Does anyone else jump at the chance to take a Redskins player in a fantasy draft, even if slightly better player on another team is available?

Nope, I play to win ... also moving this to the Lounge since the Redskins angle isn't all that strong

No. I tried playing like that when I started in 1998, but you have to keep your heart and your head separate or you will get your butt kicked.

I'm the opposite. I avoid taking Redskins at all costs.

I think Portis, Campbell, Moss, and our D are good pics for this year.

B Lloyd would be a good sleeper choice.

A couple years ago I had a lot of Redskins on my team and when they made that great run at the end of the season, it won me the championship!

Same here! I loved 2005 for more than one reason. Remember Cooley's 3 TD game against Dallas? Awesome.

I always want to but I cant. I do try and pick up Cooley though. Every year I get him, he puts up good points. I would get portis if he was there in the 4th or so . Since his stock has gone down, he might be a steal.

I loaded up on Skins (Rypien, Ervins, Clark, Monk, Lohmiller) in 1991 and dominated our league...and so did the Redskins. :P That strategy hasn't worked out since though.

I haven't had any redskins the past 5 years and I have had very solid teams the last 5 years.
HAIL TO THE REDSKINS!!!
