Week 1 Fantasy Wrap-Up


Coming into the start of the season, my confidence wasn't exactly all that high for my team in the official Pride of Detroit Fantasy Football League.  The reason for that is because I had a really crappy draft, at least I thought I did at the time.  It was my first draft of the year and I was pretty rusty.  Looking back, some of the picks just cause me to scratch my head.  If I could go back and redo it, I probably would have, that is, before week 1 got underway.

Despite my lack of confidence in my official POD FFL team, I ended up dominating my opponent this week.  That was actually the case in all three of the leagues I'm in, but I'll save the other two for later as I first want to give you a look at just how dominating my team was.
