I'll admit it, I was kind of a jerk during one of my fantasy drafts.I was already confident prior to the draft seeing my roster started with Drew Brees, Wes Welker, Roddy White, Shonn Green and Rashard Mendenhall. And when Miles Austin fell to me with the 7th pick, I was damned near impossible to deal with."This thing's over," I said. "I'm killin this draft."Yeah, I wrong.Like some of you reading this, my team is currently 0-2. And what makes matters worse is the slew of fantasy jabronies I lost to, including Matt Forte (clearly benefiting from Mike Martz), Darren McFadden (finally realizing his talent) and LeSean McCoy (Brian Westbook who?).Those three combined scored 101 points against me, and when you add them to the QB performances by Peyton Manning in Week 1 (40 points) and Matt Shaub in Week 2 (41 points), my team was pretty much taken to the woodshed.But you know what? I'm not worried, and if you're in the same boat as I am, you shouldn't be either.There's still 14 weeks left in the fantasy football season, and I'm still getting comfortable with my roster. The first two weeks are pretty much a crap shoot, and it isn't until the bye weeks start arriving when you can really gauge if you have a potential title team (which I still think I do) or one who needs to make some bold moves to get back into contention. What gives me more hope is that my team is averaging 126 points per week, which means I've been up against some teams who have simply blown up the first two weeks.I think the reason for that is karma. I ran my mouth early because I was over confident in guys like Greene and Mendenhall (who both need to step it up), and I was expecting Brees, Welker, White and Austin (who have all been monsters each week) to be able to carry my runningback-light team.I'm hoping my fortunes change this week when I take on our league's defending champ, Mr. Footbald
, who recently helped design Donovan McNabb's twitter page
and has tweeted antagonistic photos like this
. My team was drafted to beat his, but unlike draft day, I'm not going to make a point about doing so until it actually happens.
