Personal Narrative: King Of Fantasy Football

Improved Essays
Me, Jeffrey Szulczewski, the king of fantasy football? Well, sorta. So one week, I was at my dad’s house playing fantasy football on Week 3, and I was going all out. My dad doesn’t usually know how to play fantasy for every sport, so basically run every one of his 1 day leagues on DraftKings. Since I run the leagues, I usually do pretty decent. Earlier that week, I played the Thursday Night Football League. I played decent and picked some of the right guys, but it wasn’t good enough. I entered $3 and won nothing in return and that happened to me almost every single week. But I was convinced that this was the last week of my disappearance of my fantasy knowledge.

Since I was going all out ($3), I needed a source of information, which was ESPN. ESPN

They told me the running back that I should use which was Davonte Freeman, and they told me the wide receiver and QB. I don’t really remember who those positions were, but at least I knew that they weren’t going to do bad. The point where I began the “keeping-track” part of it was at 11:30 on Sunday morning.

The team that had Davonte Freeman on it was the Falcons, and they were facing my least favorite team besides the Bears: the Cowboys. Even though I hate the Cowboys, 3 minutes into the game, I was regretting my decision of Freeman because Joseph Randle, the Cowboys back, was putting up big numbers. At one point, he had about 50 rushing yards in the first quarter, which was big since it was the only also the

    After a dreadful attendance of only 21,000 for last year's spring game, Coach Jim McElwain and crew tried something different this year to boost attendance by hosting the game on a Friday night for the first time in history, and it paid off. As kickoff approached, University Ave was flooded with pedestrians in orange and blue apparel. Football was in the air, at least for a night, but that was good enough to bring together 46,000 fans and over 40 recruits into The Swamp to watch the Gators. Will Norris, a UF Student and a member of Phi Delta Theta, acknowledged he’s noticed a difference of the atmosphere on campus this year with the game being played on a Friday night, “Students are actually looking forward this year's game with Florida coming off their first SEC title since Tebow, plus, they don’t have to sit through a scorching noon game, and we get a first look at…

    So it 's my first game and I get up to the line and it 's a thirty four lead and I block my guy and I put him on the ground my first ever pancake block ever! And after that game the coaches put me on the starting offensive line but not at guard at center! I have never ever played this position before so all week at practice they give me reps all week at center and they told me to go and watch the high schoolers play so my dad and I did and this is when they were good like we are now.

    By the fourth quarter it was still a one touchdown lead, but the other team had possession of the ball at the forty-five yard line. There was three minutes and forty-six seconds left on the clock and they had to make a big play in order to win the game, and Coach Hershey knew that. Coach always had me line up with number twenty eight - the other team’s best receiver. Through the whole game I kept him shut out, and the quarterback eventually stopped throwing to him because it was pointless. On the fourth play of their last drive, it took them what seemed like forever to get set up and ready to snap the ball.…
