There are two kinds of people in this world: Those who realize fantasy football is just a game and those who don’t.
The people in the former camp might not even play, but if they do it’s only with the understanding that the results are largely unpredictable (see: Victor Cruz) and that the purpose is solely to have fun.
The people in the latter?
Now that’s another story altogether.
Fantasy football just seems to scratch some people in this world right where they itch, and if by chance you’ve never met one whose love for the socially acceptable version of Dungeons & Dragons is so extreme it trumps all other priorities in his or her life for six months straight every single year, it might be best to just stop reading now and forget this whole thing ever happened.
Suffice it to say you won’t like what you’re about to hear and that you may not view the sport of football, or the world around you, quite the same ever again.
If, on the other hand, you’re a fantasy football player currently wondering which group you happen to fall under then please, by all means read on, and please make sure to pay extra close attention while you do as the very fact you aren’t sure is a warning sign in and of itself.
You don’t want to end up like these guys, do you?
Of course not, so listen up.
Your fellow fantasy players (not to mention your friends and family and anyone else that happens to bump into you between now and February, for that matter) will thank you later.
