Most Valuable Player: - Terrell Davis (Timinators) The 4th choice overall in the draft had a career season on the field and fantasy-wise - he produced at least 3 points every week, and 12 or more points 6 times for a total of 127 fantasy points, roughly 26% of the Timinators total points for the season. An easy choice.

Least Valuable Player: - Eric Bjornson (Lunatic Fringe) In 9 starts Bjornson produced 2 fantasy points……while he’s no Troy Drayton, his numbers certainly suggest otherwise. Another candidate worth mentioning is WR Tony Martin (Grid Iron Gangsta’s). In 9 fantasy starts Martin scored 30 points - with 23 of those coming in one game.

Steal of the Draft: - There was no clear cut winner for this award. Candidates included RB Napolean Kaufman (Lunatic Fringe) taken # 78, Brad Johnson (Timinators) picked 68th, and Dorsey Levens (Lunatic Fringe) at #46.

First Round Draft Brick: - Flip a coin - #1 Emmitt Smith (Rabid Grasshoppers/Stoned Masons) The 2nd player taken in the draft produced the following: 6 points ( 0 TD’s) in 5 fantasy starts with the Grasshoppers, then 19 points with 2 TD’s in 6 games with the Masons. Or, #7 selection Carl Pickens (Roncos) with his 24 fantasy points and 2 touchdowns. Each players was also benched twice during the season.

Blindfold award - Goes to the Grid Iron Gangsta’s RB Gary Brown. Drafted with the #70 pick, the Gangsta’s kept Brown on the roster all season, but played him only once - It happened to be the week he rushed for over 150 yards and scored once.

Rookie of the Year: - No winner - no rookie appeared in enough games to merit consideration. Kickers are exempt from this award.
