Fantasy football can be truly devastating.
You pour over projections and stats, listen to all the experts, flip coins, throw darts, play “eenie-meenie” and “go with your gut” on who to sit and who to start, but sometimes nothing works.
Matchups are lost and weeks are braved through shame and sadness.
Along with golf, geometry and understanding cricket, fantasy football ranks decently high on the mental anguish scale.
Obviously fantasy football and all sports are over-reactionary, but what’s the fun in being calm and rational when there’s someone that should be blamed for your losses?
As hard as you try, there will always be those players who are “must starts” and still let you down. These are those players from Week 1.
We’re not angry, just disappointed. Ok, maybe a little bit angry.
