Fantasy Football - Fear the Beard

After 6 years cold-turkey, I have delved back into the world of fantasy sports thanks to the guys in my small group at church. We had our draft on Sunday, and it was actually pretty fun, since I'd never participated in a live draft before (OK, the best part was the ice cream cake for Nick's b-day, hands down). Feel free to pass on any fantasy football advice, and take pot shots at my awesome team (below). In order to not be too tied to the teams I love (Bears and the Brees-led Saints), I made sure I picked talented players who I can't stand personally, gotta hedge my emotions, right. Also, I think it's important to note my team's name: Kyle Orton's Neckbeard. It shall guide the mighty Bears to victory this season once he grows it back (ok, not really, but I hope Orton does well even though I drafted him as my last pick as a joke and already dropped him to add another player).
