Everyone loves having a good football team to root for: the memorabilia, the excitement, and the thrill of being a part of a winning program. Especially coming from Woodberry, we love talking about football because our team is respectably good. However, the one thing we love talking about just as much as football is fantasy football. Whether it’s your ‘everyday guys’ league that is an excuse to get out of work by doing countless hours of research or the league where each and every player is so involved that an insult to a man’s team is equivalent to an insult to his mother, the boys at The Forest spend a great deal of time building their rosters..
With pride on the line, fantasy football can often be a great way to get sidetracked during study hall, as many try to figure out the perfect lineup. In reality, there is almost never a perfect football lineup, but there was one that was pretty close– Woodberry’s team. After transferring Woodberry’s ideal lineup for fantasy football and calculating stats into points, I realized that this team is much better than most of your fantasy teams by far. Don’t believe me? I will let the stats do the talking.
Below lie stats for some of Woodberry’s best players, farther below are their closest equivalents in the NFL.
