This is a Test…

I gotta tell you, I’m really frustrated with the weather this year. I used to be the guy who said weather concerns were overrated, and I did so because I’ve seen it be so time and time again. But this year, the weather wreaked some serious havoc on fantasy production. Maybe it’s Global Warming or something, I don’t know.

But most disgusting to me was how, when I felt like the weather would be a detriment, it usually wasn’t and vice versa.

Hell, had I known the weather in Green Bay last week was going to be as bad as it was, I would have definitely pulled back on the (especially passing game) numbers for the Packers and Seahawks. Of course, I would have been WRONG, since the teams combined for 62 points, and the score was, incredibly, 28-17 at halftime (see, this is why I’ve always felt the weather was overrated in many cases).

  • The Prince Connection: Rodgers and Nelson July 7, 2014
    If you follow along over at my Twitter account @FG_Dolan (shameless plug), you’ve probably noticed my undying love for Jordy Nelson, and the fact that I’d happily welcome him onto any of my fantasy teams this year. First of all, he’s madly productive as is: he hauled in 85/1314/8 last year and averaged 16.5 FPG in a PPR league. That was good enough to rank h […]
