I love fantasy football -- it's the bomb. Watching the NFL is fun, but if you have a fantasy team, it makes it even more exciting.
I've been trolling the Internet to get ready and have done a few practice drafts. I wish the season started tomorrow.
Wednesday, I checked my mail and found my USA Today Sports Weekly (a weekly sports newspaper) in my mailbox. It felt fatter and heavier than usual! When I got back in my house, I found out why -- a big extra section on fantasy football -- sweet. Unfortunately, reading it proved to be a letdown. The articles and draft advice were moronic. Here are two examples of headlines and my comments:
"Draft strategy should tie to scoring system"
No duh. You mean if it's a PPR, I should give more weight to players who catch more passes? Gee, that's great -- thank you for great advice!
"Finding values is key to successful draft"
Wow, that's really great advice, thank you again. You mean if I have a chance to pick two players, I should take the one who has more value? Good advice and I'll try and follow it.
Anyway, forget about the stupid stuff and let the games begin.
