Through My Eyes: Fantasy Advice

Hello BattleRedBlog, I am a kid, but I am not bringing you my perspective, I am bringing you the news through my eyes. I want to let you know that I am still the mastermind of A Kid's Perspective, but I wasn't feeling the title so I changed it. Now to open with my new weekly column. In this column, once a week I am going to give any fantasy advice you want from me, just leave me a comment, and I will get back to you. Also, I am going to tell you a story, or thought I have on fantasy football. You may be wondering though, why should I take fantasy advice from a middle schooler who knows nothing about football. I am going to tell you why you should listen to me. When I was 7 or 8 years old, I was at thanksgiving at my great uncle's house. Everyone was gathered around the TV, and their computers. I was wondering why they needed their computers to watch the thanksgiving day football. Of course, being the little sports guru I am, I just had to be a part of the manly watching of the Thanksgiving Day football. I looked over my great uncle's shoulder and I asked him what was on his computer. He told me that it was fantasy football. This idea of fantasy football intrigued me. It made me wonder what this fantasy of football was. I wanted to know if it was like a computer game or something like that. I asked and he told me, you keep players from real teams, that are real, and you get points based on their statistics. Well I thought I could join, because I was like the stats guru of the family. I thought that it would be a fun thing to try, but I didn't think that I wanted to play with the men quite yet. When I was 8, in the 2008 season, my friend invited me to play in his fantasy football league. I immediately joined without question, and got to reading every internet article I could teaching me how to play. It was ten teams, and all of my friends friends. I was intimidated because all of these boys were a year older than me, and they showed up prepared. I showed up with my brain, and everyone else had a cheat sheet. I was completely unprepared, but my knowledge of football helped. I got Brian Westbrook, Donovan McNabb, Reggie Wayne, and Vernon Davis. I just picked them without rankings, but I did the best I could. I ended up with only Reggie Wayne as my only original draft pick. I either made trades or, picked guys up off of waivers. As I found myself as the champion at the end of the year, I wondered if it was just beginners luck, or if it was legitimate fantasy football beastliness. The next, Thanksgiving, I bragged on my victory in that league. In 2009, I played in a four team league with my family, because my friend had moved away. It was really easy for me, and I went 16-0 including playoffs. It was standard scoring and I was by an average of 40 points. I just always played my cards right. In 2010, the legend was really born. I joined my great uncle's non money league, and was ready to play in a 14 team league with the big boys. Still to this day I refuse to play in money leagues because it is against the law. I could only be on for the first five rounds of the draft, and then I had to go to bed because it was really late. In the first round, with the 11th pick I took LeSean McCoy and then I got Calvin Johnson right after that. After that I got Jamaal Charles, Vernon Davis, and A.J. Green. It turned out that every one of them had a breakout year. I went 12-2 and then won the championship. From then on out, I would brag about being the best player in the family. I also played a small family league and got second. So in my short fantasy football career, I had won 3 out of 4 championships. The next year, I entered middle school, and I made some new friends to play fantasy football with. I made a league with my friends, 8 teams, and easily won. Then, I entered my family league again, and again won with 14 teams. That made me 5 for 6 in championships. This past year, 2012 I played in two leagues, my own and my family. Once again, I easily won my own league again, but this time I suffered a heartbreaking defeat in the semifinals. I got 3rd place and this made me 6 for 8, my current total. This year, in my league I am 5-0, in my family league, I am 3-2, but going on a tear. In my other family league, I started 0-3 but then won my last 2. I am also 3-2 in one of my other friends leagues. I am projected to make the playoffs in every single league. So if you are still wondering if I am not legit, 6 for 8 in championships, and I have never finished below 3rd. I enjoy fantasy football, and I hope that you can feel my passion for the sport of fantasy. I hope that you will seek my advice in the comment section. Go Texans and Keep Playing Fantasy Football!
