Hello Bruno Boys Nation!
My name is Jordan Zucker and I run and all girls fantasy football website called Girls’ Guide to Fantasy Football (GG2FF). Basically, I encourage women worldwide to participate in fantasy football leagues. I’m more of a ringleader than a guru, but that doesn’t stop me from talking like one. GG2FF offers weekly videos geared towards female appreciation of the game. Last year I did weekly video recaps that had routine segments but different musical themes. This year we’re changing gears and doing interviews with “Girls’ Guide to Fantasy Football Presents: Where in the NFL World is Jordan Zucker?!?!” and you’ll have to tune in to find out which player’s lap I show up on every week.
I am the fantasy football commissioner of a few all girls leagues, but the original, League Home Sauce, had its live draft last Thursday, September 3, 2009 and as usual, it was our favorite night of the year. Our good friends Bruno Boys Fantasy Football and CommishKit Draft Boards sponsored the draft and supplied us with a 12-team Draft Board for our special night. The Draft Board will now be up for display for the length of the fantasy football season! Just to show you how dedicated our league is we even had our two NY-ers attend the draft via video chat. Now that’s dedication!
It’s tradition that League Home Sauce has an official draft day cocktail and this year it was the Dark and Stormy (yes, it has to be made with Goslings rum and ginger beer - not ale). Our league is a keeper league and then a snake draft that starts round 2 in reverse order of last season’s standings. I came in 3rd last year so I kept Matt Forte (it was between him and Deangelo Williams) and then had pick No. 22 in a 12-team league.
Now let’s take a look at my team, Pocket Rulers:
1. (K) Matt Forte, RB, Chicago Bears
2. (22) Greg Jennings, WR, Green Bay Packers
3. (27) T.J. Houshmandzadeh, WR, Seattle Seahawks
4. (46) Tony Gonzalez, TE Atllanta Falcons
5. (55) Beanie Wells, RB Arizona Cardinals
6. (74) Matt Schaub, QB Houston Texans
7. (79) Willie Parker, RB Pittsburgh Steelers
8. (98) Torry Holt, WB Jacksonville Jaguars
9. (103) Minnesota Vikings D/ST
10. (122) Felix Jones, RB Dallas Cowboys
11. (126) Matt Hasselbeck, QB Seattle Seahawks
12. (145) Josh Morgan, WR San Francisco 49ers
13. (150) Percy Harvin, WR Minnesota Vikings
14. (169) Anthony Fasano, TE Miami Dolphins
15. (174) Nick Folk. K, Dallas Cowboys
A little risky with the Chris “Beanie” Wells pick at No.55, but getting a “Fast” Willie Parker steal in the seventh round makes me feel better about it. I also think I hit the panic button with the Matt Schaub pick in the sixth round as all of my targeted QBs were already off the board, but again, my backup Matt Hasselbeck should be solid and allow me to play match-ups. We shall see how it turns out but I like my squad as we enter Week 1 of the fantasy football season!
Make sure to tune in next week as I will take a look at how my fantasy team is progressing in League Home Sauce!
Touchback with you next week!
