If you want to win your fantasy football league, than take my advice.  Make a trade to acquire Kyle Orton and Brandon Lloyd.  If you are in a fantasy league with amateurs, or the mentally disabled, Brandon Lloyd may still be available.  If he is, acquire him.

Many of the people reading this are likely thinking I am crazy.  I might be, but that is irrelevant to my advice.  This article is intended for real winners.  By real winners I mean people going to the playoffs.  Assuming your playoffs run through week 16, like mine, and every other fantasy football playoffs I have ever seen, Kyle Orton and Brandon Lloyd have an advantageous schedule. 

The Kyle Orton and Brandon Lloyd combo face Arizona, Oakland, and Houston during the fantasy playoffs.  For anyone that does not know much about football, this means they will score a shit load of points. 

I understand everyone is thinking Orton and Lloyd are having fluke years and their current performance will not continue.  They may be having fluke seasons, but their current performance will continue.  Just because a player’s team loses games, or gets destroyed in a game, does not they cannot be productive fantasy players. 

The pass game is the only thing working for Denver, which means they will continue to go to it, win or lose.  This means Orton and Lloyd will continue to put up mad fantasy points.  So if you think you can snag Lloyd for a big name receiver like Reggie Wayne, or especially Andre Johnson, go for it. 

During the fantasy playoffs Kyle Orton will throw for 1,000 yards and 9 touchdowns.  Brandon Lloyd will have 330 receiving yards on 21 receptions, and 3 touchdowns. 

You are welcome for the advice.  I hope you are a real man, and make money from this.  If you do not play fantasy for money, you do not play fantasy.  You are welcome America.
