All Female Fantasy League - Week 5

Posted on: October 10, 2008 3:58 pm

I asked the women in the All-Female Fantasy Football League to share their thoughts on the league so far. First up is Lindsay Jones, who covers the Broncos for the Denver Post. She is 4-1 to start the year after beating Lesley Visser in Week 5, 75-46. Jones is tied with Vicki Smith and Kim Broder for first place, and this week she plays Alison London (2-3).

Here's what Jones had to say ...

"Much like the team I cover in real life, I was off to a magical 3-0 start, though I didn't need an errant whistle or a missed field goal to win a couple of games like the Broncos did. I was blowing teams out. It was fantastic. But I held my tongue when the other players in the league started talking trash ... I knew everything could quickly come crashing down. And sure enough, my team imploded in Week 4. Jay Cutler threw 2 picks (which doomed his real-life team, as well); the Cowboys inexplicably stopped giving the ball to Marion Barber; and I was without a starting receiver (Reggie Wayne) and RB (Brandon Jacobs) because of byes. It was ... ugly."
