College football started this week, and on that note, here are several fantasy league rosters filled with players that should probably go back to college. Unless they went to college at Oklahoma or Ole Miss. Yikes.
These are the final six roster overviews of the JMWL. If you're new, the idea of the league is to create a team of players that plays enough to have some impact in a game, but doesn't play well. In other words, we're striving for the mediocrity given to the Texans by Jonathan Wells in 2002.
On to the rosters!
Spoon feed peoples - JimboTexan
Starting 7: QB David Garrard, RB Jahvid Best, RB Reggie Bush, WR Kenny Britt, WR Derrick Mason, TE Brandon Pettigrew, K Matt Stover
Bench: Tim Tebow, Mike Bell, Cedric Benson, Tashard Choice, Darren Sproles, Bernard Berrian, Josh Morgan, Jeremy Shockey
I think Best probably outperforms the starting lineup, and I think Garrard is probably a cut above the line of bad for this league. Otherwise, it looks like a pretty solid team. Kicking myself for not nabbing Derrick Mason, as he's a perfect fit for this league.
Return Of Stacy Mack - Rivers McCown
I went over my picks here.
Grade: B+. I don't think this is a winning roster simply because it has too much irrelevance. But it was more fun to draft it that way.
NOLANDERSGONNAFUCKUUPSOHARD - Nolander
Starting 7: QB Carson Palmer, RB Donald Brown, RB Correll Buckhalter, WR Danny Amendola, WR Chad Ochocinco, TE Bo Scaife, K Kris Brown
Bench: Derek Anderson, Matt Cassell, Josh Johnson, Ryan Mathews, CJ Spiller, Dwayne Bowe, Antwaan Randle-El, Dustin Keller
Nollie missed the draft but came up with a pretty good team out of the leftovers regardless. My only complaint would be that he's banking a little too hard on certain teams to regress (Chiefs, Bengals), but he's got his bases pretty well covered. Derek Anderson should probably start week 1, and he'll need a new kicker as well in all probability.
Multiple Scorgasms - AllenOU
Starting 7: QB Jake Delhomme, RB Maurice Morris, RB Chris Ogbonnaya, WR Chansi Stuckey, WR Troy Williamson, TE Alge Crumpler, K Mike Nugent
Bench: Colt McCoy, Seneca Wallace, Javon Ringer, Donte Stallworth, Roy Williams, Joel Dreessen, Brody Eldridge
This team nee
This team needs some work.
The QB handcuffs are, of course, genius, but I'm not sure his running backs will get enough carries to function as a plus. Williamson and Stallworth were both cut, and I am not sure who Chansi Stuckey is, but he sounds like a Pokemon.
11 Tight End Set - Shake
Starting 7: QB Rex Grossman, RB Montario Hardesty, RB Derrick Ward, WR Dexter McLuster, WR Mike Williams, TE Anthony Fasano, K Billy Cundiff
Bench: Dennis Dixon, Joe McKnight, Fred Taylor, Josh Cribbs, James Jones, Daniel Graham, Jason Hanson, Nate Kaeding
Might have one of the top three WR corps in the league, and badly needs to use that to trade for some bad quarterbacks, because he might not even have a Week 1 starter there. The only RB I see that he can use is Taylor, and there's really no need to have 3 kickers in any league, ever.
Tony Hollings' Opus - WorstFan
Starting 7: QB Matt Leinart, RB Jerome Harrison, RB LaDanian Tomlinson, WR Devin Hester, WR TJ Houshmandzadeh, TE Ben Petrick, K Graham Gano
Bench: Alex Smith, Larry Johnson, Willis McGahee, Brian Westbrook, Darrius Heyward-Bey, Devin Thomas, Nate Washington, Ben Watson
Tough break on cut-down day as he lost his starting QB, but this team has a lot of depth at other positions and could probably spring a trade to acquire another one if necessary. Housh signing elsewhere would definitely help as well.
Next week, we move to our lovely Saturday time slot for predictions and we'll leave Sunday to the actual games. Games played by professionals, unlike most of these players.
