Vikings have only a prayer in NFC Title game

As some readers may know, I grew up a Viking fan. While my fandom has been diminished probably 70% over the last 10 years due to the nature of my business, there is still some left, and I was pretty amped up for this past weekend’s Divisional game against the Cowboys.

  • How the New Focus on Defensive Penalties may Affect IDP August 11, 2014
    FantasyGuru.com IDP Analyst Corby Yarbrough can be found on Twitter @Corby_Yarbrough. Not that there is anything we as IDP players can do about it, but I just needed to vent my grief that an already inconsistent aspect of fantasy football has the potential to drive us even a little more crazy in 2014. Week One of the NFL preseason is in the books, and if the […]
