Is there anything worse for a fantasy owner than looking at your team right after the draft and wondering why it's so terrible?

Ok, so I'm not feeling that bad about my team, but I certainly think other owners have better squads. We had 14 teams in tonight's Charm City Champions League draft, which definitely made things challenging. I came in at pick No. 11 and got LaMont Jordan, which I was happy with. I like Jordan alot because he can help in the passing game, having caught 70 balls last season.


With my second round pick, I had to decide between a top receiver (like Torry Holt, Marvin Harrison or Randy Moss) and a second-tier running back (Kevin Jones, Clinton Portis, Reggie Bush, Chester Taylor). I ended up going with Holt. I knew 22 more players would be off the board when I got to my next pick, and that would mean no top wideouts. I felt like I could stockpile running backs later in the draft.

So who did I end up with? I was able to grab Dominic Rhodes in the third round and Joseph Addai in the fifth. Hopefully one of them will emerge as the top option for the Colts. As I told the other owners, I can always hope that one of them gets arrested or retires (On a sidenote, I am taking suggestions for a team name).


My lineup looks like this: Trent Green, Jordan, Rhodes/Addai, Holt, Plaxico Burress, Jason Witten, Jason Elam and the Giants defense.

I like the squad of last year's champ, the Fordyce Redbugs: Marc Bulger, Shaun Alexander, Kevin Jones, Andre Johnson, Darrell Jackson, Ben Troupe, John Kasay and the Dolphins 'D.'
