I'm sure everybody around these parts are all excited about Friday night and the beginning of the 2010 high school football season.Not I.I know I get paid to cover high schools sports, especially football, and although I get to witness the Buford-Gainesville battle Friday, I can't help but look past that day.This weekend I have not one, but two fantasy football drafts, and I can't wait for either.The problem is planning for the draft. It's damn near impossible to mock draft the "big-money" keeper league I'm in, seeing how rookies are valued more, players kept from last year are slotted in their original position and older keepers are pushed to the final draft spots.Confused? Yeah, so are about 4 or 5 guys in the league.With no way of planning for one, I've invested a few hours researching and mock-drafting the other league. This one involves a slew of people here at The Times, past and present, and I'm here to win this thing.I'm also here to help you win your league. If anyone has any fantasy questions throughout the year, feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
or follow me on twitter @gtimesjzopf. Tonight, I decided to head on over to ESPN.com
and mock the draft in which I have the 11th pick. (Thanks Brent)Here's a recap of how it went.
