When I woke up Tuesday morning after seeing my fantasy team storm into the league championship game, I received an email from my finals opponent asking if I would like to simply split the league’s winnings and forgo the matchup in order to “go into Christmas without thinking a lot about FF.” I, as I […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Though none of you care, there are two big things happening for me this week. One is the fantasy football playoffs. The other is Finals Week here at the University of Maryland. For one of these two things, I have spent hours toiling away, reading, researching and learning all that I can in preparation. It’s […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
As sad as it is to say, the football season is winding down. We’ve watched 13 straight weeks of football both in real life and on the pretend field, and each second of it has been more spectacular—or gut-wrenching—than the last. Some of our real-team loves are Super Bowl contenders. Or playoff hopefuls. Or they […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
This is it, pretend football players: the final push. Playoffs are beginning in leagues across the fake sport next week, making Sunday—and Monday—integral to many of our championship hopes. Whether you’re firmly planted in the playoffs, fighting for a spot or simply trying to play spoiler, this week will be filled with a lot of […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Well, I sure hope none of you started anybody in last night’s Jets-Broncos game. Sure, from a fan standpoint it turned out to be a spectacular game, seeing as 1) Tim Tebow is the god of everything and 2) every time Rex Ryan loses an angel gets its wings. But from a fantasy perspective, it […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Welcome to Week 10 of the NFL season. It’s been over 2 months since week 1. Huh? That can’t be right. I am going to protest this unabated movement of time. It’s unconstitutional. As I paint my “Stop Time” signs you should check out some injury news and linkage. Ok? ok. The abuse that happened […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Is anyone else curious as to why there are no teams with byes in Week 10? Seriously. I, like Tiki Barber, am flabbergasted by this. Twenty-eight teams had their byes prior to this week, and the final four will have their byes in Week 11. Yet there’s none this week. Is the NFL now taking […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
This is often the most difficult part of the season for fantasy owners. We’ve got super bye weeks where like 19 teams aren’t playing, and injuries are running rampant across the league, so rosters could be stretched a little thin. But don’t worry, help is on the way. There’s no need to start sifting through […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
There are two types of fantasy players after Week 3 of the NFL season: The people with teams better than .500 who are just on top of the world, and the people whose teams are sitting at the 1-2 mark or even the dreaded 0-3, with despair beginning to set in. Well I’m here to […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Jamaal Charles owners, this column is dedicated to you. When Charles fell to you with the fourth pick in the draft, you were absolutely giddy with excitement. He was going to be the centerpiece of what was surely to be your championship-winning fantasy team this year. But two weeks later, the excitement is gone. Now […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
