Cookie Butter Bars

It’s almost football season.

Which means that in the next few weeks I’ll be doing research on who I might want to draft for my fantasy football team. There are so many things to consider. Like if the player was recovering from an injury during the off season. Or maybe their team has a new quarterback who likes to spread the ball around. Perhaps a powerhouse defense lost a lot of their starters due to trades or retirement. These things may not seem very important to some, but they can really make a difference in your players’ performance throughout the season.

Trying to figure out WHEN to draft certain positions isn’t all that easy either. Do I take a running back in the first AND second round? Or, if I am able, do I take a top 4 quarterback in the second? How about the top tight end in the third? This can definitely get a bit mind hurty.

Do you play Fantasy Football? What’s your team name? Mine is Gone Fawn It.
