This off-season, Colts Authority was invited to compete against blogs and media outlets from across the country in Crown Royal's First-and-Crown Fantasy League. Fantasy football and whiskey? The offer was too much to pass up. Each week, we'll be updating our progress in the league, and, depending on how poorly we do, updating the amount of whiskey we consume.
In our first update, we'll set up our team and our week 1 results.
Unfortunately, due to some… product-induced confusion, our draft strategy was less-than-optimal. Beliving that the league was a 1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR league, we went focused heavily on WRs in this 14-team league. It was only after the draft was complete that we realized it was a 1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 0 flex league. So when you look at our roster, please, understand: we were soooo wasted.
QB: Ben Roethlisberger, Joe Flacco (NO ONE HAS MORE RINGS THAN WE DO)
RB: Stevan Ridley, Ryan Mathews, BenJarvus Green-Ellis
WR: AJ Green, Randall Cobb, Miles Austin, Stevie Johnson, Sidney Rice
TE: Kellen Winslow, Dwayne Allen
K: Dan Bailey
Unfortunately, despite strong efforts from AJ Green and Randall Cobb, we fell to the Raider Nation Times. Ironic.
Next up: A Cowboys blog. Great. And thanks to that crappy game in New England, we're already behind the 8-ball with 5 points TOTAL from Ridley and Winslow. Bleh.
Talk to you in a week.
