Trading for Julio Jones

No, this is not a bitter, ranting polemic against the Fantasy Gods and one of the best five wide receivers in fantasy or real football. Of course, when we are not in the selfish bubble of fantasy points, sits and starts, division games, we need to remember that football players are humans and I definitely […]

Drama-Free Week 13

I must say it is extremely therapeutic and peaceful knowing I have clinched the No. 2 seeds in both of my leagues and the only issue still up in the air is who my first playoff opponent will be in each respective league. It is an enviable position, yes. I have been “in the game” […]

Once again, Fantasy Football is a very cruel game Part II

Once again, Fantasy Football is a very cruel game Part I

To say these last days of my life have not been kind to me would be a major understatement. I hate to complain, but I have had more than the usual share of unluckiness and mishaps. Work has been a little stressful, definitely a sharp contrast to the way it was in the summer time. […]

Addai may not go against the Detroit Lions

So there goes the potential of a great matchup against one of the worst teams in the history of the league. Unfortunately, I wasn’t savvy/smart enough to have Dominic Rhodes on my team. So I will be “stat chasing” after all with Mr. Antonio Bryant. My good friend Randy, a die hard Bucs fan, sent […]
