A Sigh Heard Around the Fantasy World

Nobody really thought that Larry Johnson would sit out the 2007 football season. But you know that there were a lot of fantasy owners that took Johnson that were likely checking on the status of this holdout several times a day. Johnson fell to number four in many drafts (#6 in one draft I was in) and those owners have to be doing cartwheels today as Johnson’s holdout has ended.

The Kansas City Star said Johnson was at practice Tuesday afternoon, after agreeing to a five-year contract extension that will take him through the 2012 season. The paper said the new deal will pay the 2003 first-round pick $45 million over the next six years.

There was also a sigh of “Bummer” from all the guys that drafted Priest Holmes thinking they were getting the steal of the draft.

    Sure seems like any team that drafted him is now set to dominate their league in a way never seen before in all of fantasy sports. We sure wish we had snagged him with the number 3 pick…oh, wait we did! BRILLIANT!
