Fantasy Wind-up

by: Chris Sullivan

Well guys, it's that time of year again. You'll soon start getting emails from friends who think you're kind of dumb asking you to join their fantasy league, or hey, maybe its you trying to get the suckers into your league. We've all got to win one, right? The second annual Seahawk Addicts fantasy league will be starting out pretty soon, I'll start sending out invites and such in the next couple of weeks. In the meantime, you'd better start getting your strategy on!

Friend of the Blog Rob Staton has been doing some great stuff over at the Draft Blog lately. Sure, it started out as being all about the NFL draft, but screw that man, that's old news -- it's all about YOUR fantasy draft now. Rob is one of the better informed Britons that I know when it comes to discussing the NFL and specifically the strengths and weaknesses of the teams. He picked them apart in his mock drafts for the April-stravaganza, and now, tada, you get his knowledge for your draft party too.

Check out his first full Mock Draft. Any Seahawks for Rob?

Round 4 (2) Rob - T.J. Houshmandzadeh (Sea - WR)
I was seriously tempted by Ryan Grant and Marshawn Lynch here, two backs who were taken in the top two rounds last year. Lynch starts the season suspended but could have value later on, whilst Grant is likely to start in Green Bay. However, with weak options at WR ahead I decide to take a chance and show some love to the Seahawks.

So Housh has won Rob's heart. Nice! At any rate, check out the Mock and keep an eye out on this space right here for our likely mock fantasy draft coming in a week or so. In the meantime... What do you think about Rob's draft? In the comments here, give me your top ten prospects, if you've got the cajones, that is.
