Britt’s Colin Kapernick rant

If you’ve heard Episode 14 you know two things: 1) Britt rushed to talk about anything at all this week because he did not get his numbers ready in time and 2) Britt finally lost it about Colin Kapernick. Understanding that there is limited ability to articulate in detail during a podcast which requires beer consumption, I decided to do a post about my take.  These are my personal opinions about Colin Kapernick and you are free to disagree with me, I just want to be honest about what I see and what I fear. Please take into account that reading this may be tough, but it was also tough to write it. Continue reading “Britt’s Colin Kapernick rant”

Week 1 DFS Recap: Alert Level – Willie

“I warned ya! Didn’t I warn ya? That chalk was forged by Lucifer himself!” –Groundskeeper Willie

I love The Simpsons, so until I get a cease and desist order from them, I’ll likely be using characters to indicate my alarm level week to week on my lineups. This week, the alarm level is Willie. Willie loves to make dire predictions and then gloat when they come true. I warned you all that early DFS was volatile and this week was just that! Let’s see how my lineups did:  Continue reading “Week 1 DFS Recap: Alert Level – Willie”

Week 1 DFS Thursday: Britt Hates Thursday Games

Let me start by saying, I prefer to avoid using players on Thursdays nights as a general rule. The shorter time to practice, the shorter physical recovery time (particularly as the season goes on), and the rush on coaches to game plan all factor in to less consistent performance and harder predictions when it comes to DFS. That being said, I did promise to post my thoughts on Thursday night games each week, and its time to discuss week 1. Continue reading “Week 1 DFS Thursday: Britt Hates Thursday Games”

Preseason Week 3: It Just Gets Weirder

When Craig and I hatched this podcast, we envisioned a hobby that we would do in our spare time. Record weekly, do the occasional written piece on the site, and share some of the knowledge we’ve accumulated over 50 years of combined Fantasy Football play. It would be fun! And it is, but then…. the preseason arrived.  Continue reading “Preseason Week 3: It Just Gets Weirder”
