Cramer's 'Mad Money' Recap: My Fantasy Draft (Final)

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- "With the NFL football season starting tomorrow, it's time to pick our fantasy stock portfolio," Jim Cramer announced to the viewers of his "Mad Money" TV show Wednesday.

Donning his "Mad Money" football helmet, Cramer said picking a diversified portfolio is a lot like picking the best players for each position you need for a football team.

For his running backs, Cramer chose ConocoPhillips (COP), a stock which he owns for his charitable trust, Action Alerts PLUS , and Nucor (NUE). He said these stocks are the work horses of this portfolio.

At quarterback, Cramer said he wanted someone with many skills, and that's Berkshire Hathaway (BRK-B). This company provides a railroad and an insurance company, along with pipelines, steel and a host of other industries.

Apple (AAPL), another Action Alerts PLUS name, was drafted for Cramer's wide receiver spot, as he reiterated his $300 price target on the stock. Also in at wide receiver, Teva Pharmaceuticals (TEVA) and Medco Health Solutions (MHS).

For his defense, Cramer chose the SPDR Gold Shares (GLD) ETF, for now through October 1st, then the iShares Silver Trust (SLV) for the remainder of the season.

Finally, as his all-star kicker, Cramer picked General Mills (GIS), another Action Alerts PLUS favorite.

Cramer said with a portfolio as diverse and as talented at this one, investors will enjoy a great football season.
