Let’s not struggle with the sadness of this moment, that a season of The League is once again coming to an end. Let’s, instead, celebrate what we have been given: a new champion, a new reason to look forward to next football season even if our fantasy football team sucks again in 2011 (there will,…… Continue reading The League S02E13: “The Sacko Bowl” Kicks Off [Season 2 Finale]
It happens in almost every draft. It’s the magazine curse. Some league member — let’s call him Pete — is convinced that Ben Tate is going to be the next superstar after they read a profile of him that was written in June. Pete is excited. Pete gets busy with other things until draft day.…… Continue reading Friends don’t let friends draft Ben Tate
Congratulations on escaping from that rock you’ve been trapped under for all those long months since the Super Bowl. Hopefully, you weren’t trapped in this thing. After you get a good, warm meal inside of you, I’m sure you’ll be wondering what happened in the world since you departed. Or if you, like me, took…… Continue reading Top 15 Fantasy Football Storylines You Missed Since the Super Bowl
I really hope that the scoring change on Kurt Warner’s touchdown pass to Anquan Boldin didn’t burn you. That has to be the worst kind of pain in the world. It’s exciting to pull out your semifinal game by just a few points, and it’s exciting to have a chance at the championship. Having that…… Continue reading Week 16 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders: All the marbles? But can’t I just keep at least one?
I hope this week matters to you. It certainly matters to me. I’ve made it this far in the playoffs, and I don’t plan to stop until I get a championship. There’s a theme this week out there. I’ve noticed it. It’s Jamaal Charles love. Try and find someone who hates him this week. Other…… Continue reading Week 15 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders: Who’s Going to Win Me My Championship
I thought we’d do things a little differently this week. By this point, I expect that most of you know who you are starting and sitting during these critical weeks of the fantasy playoffs. As such, I don’t think you’ll need as much help deciding which players to start and sit. Trust is as important…… Continue reading Week 14 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders: You Know Where This is Going
It’s good that it only comes after bye weeks are over when rosters have, for the most part, been figured out. Otherwise, Thursday Night Football would be a real pain. Instead, it’s just kind of a pain because you have to remember in the middle of the week, just after setting your waiver wire claims…… Continue reading Week 10 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders: Thursday Night Football is for Lovers
Chadam of contributing writer to Fantasy Football Fools fame has this theory about Chad Pennington that he asked me to share. He says they broke Pennington’s shoulder on purpose so that he can have surgery and come back next season like Rookie of the Year with a cannon that can throw 70-yard bombs. Maybe he’s…… Continue reading Week 4 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders: Rookie of the Year?
These Patriots are clearly not the same team that we expected to see back on the field with Brady’s return. When New England traded Richard Seymour to the Oakland Raiders, it proved one thing: Bill Belichick will do anything for a first round draft pick. Draft picks are like crack to him. Belichick cannot refuse.…… Continue reading Foolish Thoughts: Wherefore art thou Patriots?
