Dr. James Andrews Selects Kirk Cousins In 2nd Round Of Fantasy Draft
"Call It a Hunch," Says Redskins Team Physician
WASHINGTON – To the shock of the other owners in his fantasy football league, Dr. James Andrews, chief physician for the Washington Redskins and surgeon to the right knee of 2nd year starter Robert Griffin III, selected Redskins backup QB Kirk Cousins with his second round choice in the league’s official 2013 draft, sources confirmed early today.
“Let’s just say it’s a hunch,” Andrews replied when questioned by fellow owners in the “Doctors Without Raiders” league as to the surprising choice. “Kirk Cousins has all the tools necessary to be a top-5 fantasy QB. All he needs is the opportunity to showcase his skills. And I just have this feeling he’ll be getting his chance to be a long term starter very soon.”
Andrews’ unusual behavior didn’t stop there, according to eyewitnesses.
“Later, in the 6th round, I chose RGIII to be my starting quarterback,” said Stanley Patterson, 52, an oncologist at nearby Holy Cross Hospital. “I figured it was a great bargain to be getting him that late. But when I announced the pick, James snorted really loudly and said, ‘yeah, good luck with that.’ Talk about rude, right? I mean, fantasy football is all about taking gambles and making educated guesses. What makes him think he knows what’s going to happen to the Skins’ QBs any better than the rest of us?”
