Joe’s Fantasy Football Bible

So what’s it gunna be then, eh? If you’ve ever seen or read A Clockwork Orange, you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about. In fantasy football, it’s question you ask yourself over and over as the clock is winding down and you need to pick. You’ve read every ESPN, Yahoo!, and Rotoworld article imaginable, scoured through every cheatsheet, and have even made your own rankings. No matter how prepared you are (or think you are), be prepared for chaos. You may think you know what you’re going to do until you’re on the clock. I’ve done it. I remember blurting out “Torry Holt!” as time expired one year. This of course was when he signed with Jacksonville, clearly was on the decline, and in that stupid moment of word vomit, I ruined my chance at back to back championships.

Don’t be that guy. If I’ve learned anything from playing fantasy football the past decade, it’s hold back the word vomit. Fantasy football isn’t a time to let chaos ensue. Your guy gets taken? So what, there’s a hundred other guys that can make up your team. Be angry, upset, afraid, whatever, for a few seconds, then take a deep breath, and get back to the board.

This tweet really does speak volumes though, given the playoff history of the Celts.

Follow @ESPNStatsInfo if you want, but definitely follow us @GTDsports.

This one is more like a team nickname update.

Amid legal troubles for the Redskins, a Washington D.C. council member has submitted a proposal for a new team name, according to ESPN’s Dan Graziano.

The Redtails. Yes, that is correct. The Redtails.

ESPN’s Chris Palmer was on a roll today. Go take a look for yourselves, especially when he was talking about hypothetical one-on-one games between NBA players. Good stuff.

This is a pretty mind-blowing stat. It’s hard to believe that Chamberlain or Kareem didn’t record single-game stats like Pau did last night. Kudos, Pau and thanks Chris Palmer for the stat.
