Buyer Beware

Got an e-mail tipping me off to this story from the Serious Sports News Network that proves that friends shouldn't let friends drink and draft.

"I just took the position that if he's dumb enough to grab the Whoopi Goldberg-looking Adrian Peterson off waivers, we can afford to give him a mulligan," said Andy Franklin - commissioner of the Yahoo! league Step Up to Get Ya' Rep Up - referring to Danny Sellinger and his squad, D's Nutz. "Danny doesn't really watch football anyway, so he's pretty much assured of last place. He told me he's thinking of picking up Charlie Frye to replace Peterson."

I know of at least one person that made this mistake in one of my many leagues.  It's compounded by the fact that 2007 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year Adrian Peterson was usually gone by the 2nd or 3rd round of most drafts that I participated in, and people were selecting Adrian Peterson the (much, much) Lesser in the 12th and 13th round.  Only one person openly celebrated his "steal," however.

More on this week's matchup with the Chiefs later on.  See you then, folks!
