Up For Poker Does Fantasy Football

by Luckbox

The Up For Poker crew has found many ways to compete over the years. There's been frolf and Euchre and poker. There's even been the Drunk-a-lympics. One of our yearly traditions, however, is fantasy football. It's a league I ran for a couple of years around the turn of the millenium. It's now helmed by Uncle Ted. Our 12 man league consists of a motely crew of current and former employees at our G-Vegas corporation.

This morning was our draft. I report, you decide:

Syracuse ManahManah (Luckbox)

McNabb, Donovan PHI QB
Russell, JaMarcus OAK QB
Gore, Frank SFO RB
Grant, Ryan GBP RB
Mendenhall, Rashard PIT RB
Rice, Ray BAL RB
Slaton, Steve HOU RB
Berrian, Bernard MIN WR
Bowe, Dwayne KCC WR
Johnson, Chad CIN WR
Walker, Javon OAK WR
Ward, Hines PIT WR
Akers, David PHI PK
Gould, Robbie CHI PK
Jaguars, Jacksonville JAC Def
Raiders, Oakland OAK Def

Reedy River Cards (Otis)

Brady, Tom NEP QB
Delhomme, Jake CAR QB
Bell, Tatum DET RB
Bush, Reggie NOS RB
Forte, Matt CHI RB
Jackson, Fred BUF RB
James, Edgerrin ARI RB
Brown, Reggie PHI WR
Galloway, Joey TBB WR
Holt, Torry STL WR
Heap, Todd BAL TE
Witten, Jason DAL TE
Brown, Josh STL PK
Folk, Nick DAL PK
Chiefs, Kansas City KCC
Patriots, New England NEP

Frank (G-Rob)

Campbell, Jason WAS QB
Hasselbeck, Matt SEA QB
Rivers, Philip SDC QB
Lynch, Marshawn BUF RB
Maroney, Laurence NEP RB
McFadden, Darren OAK RB
Washington, Leon NYJ RB
Curtis, Kevin PHI WR
Driver, Donald GBP WR
Moss, Santana WAS WR
Wayne, Reggie IND WR
Davis, Vernon SFO TE
Winslow, Kellen CLE TE
Gostkowski, Stephen NEP PK
Rackers, Neil ARI PK
Bears, Chicago CHI Def

We start 1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR/TE, 1 K and 1 D/ST. We've each had varying degrees of success. G-Rob made our playoffs last year, I made them the year before that, G-Rob won the Super Bowl the year before that, and I lost the Super Bowl the year before that. Otis' success has been less varied. He hasn't had any. Except for the XFL Fantasy Football championship he secured. And that's not a joke.

Frankly, I think I've got a pretty good chance this year, although it all hinges on Donovan McNabb's success. I've got a $5 bet with G-Rob that DMac outscores his beloved Carson Palmer this year. I guess we'll see!
