ADENTRO Y AFUERA WEEK 11: APPRECIATING TE GREATNESS

This is an appreciation for Travis Kelce, and not just because he was on a bye last week with the Chiefs. I also have to make an important admission on my part. For the better part of my decades of playing fantasy football I did not appropriately value the position. Even though I grew up liking players like Dave Casper, Kellen Winslow and Tony Gonzalez, when it came to fantasy football, I was always quick to let others spend up their early picks while I hammered RBs and WRs.

LOS WAIVERS, WEEK 11: JAKOBI MEYERS GOT ME…

I love my birthday. Since I was a teenager, I never wanted to work on my birthday. I did on my 20th birthday, and it almost made me late to see U2 on the original Joshua Tree Tour. Said I’d never do that again.

TIGHT END RANKINGS, WEEK 10

If you have Travis Kelce on your team, this is the week that has been keeping you up at night. Trolling the waiver wire to get a one-week stopgap player. It ain’t pretty for those fantasy managers who haven’t had Kelce to just set it and forget it. Here are the Week 10 rankings:

RUNNING BACK RANKINGS, WEEK 10

Mamas, don’t let your children grow up to be Running Backs. The RB position has been a battle of attrition, and there will be plenty of fantasy managers who will be scooping up the bottom of the waiver wire just to field full lineups. Here are some of the names that are out this week (not counting players on bye): CMC, Chris Carson, David Johnson, Justin Jackson, Joe Mixon and David Montgomery. Though welcome back Miles Sanders and Nick Chubb. Not a lot of fun making the rankings past the Top 10.

WIDE RECEIVER RANKINGS, WEEK 10

Not much argument at the top, even with Tyreek Hill and Julio Jones on a bye. The only thing that could slow down Davante Adams against the Jaguars is if Mother Nature blew 50-MPH winds through Lambeau Field. And even then Adams would get 100 yards and a TD. Here are the rankings for Week 10:

ADENTRO Y AFUERA WEEK 10: BEST 0-5 TEAM EVER

Going behind the curtain of my personal fantasy football world for a few minutes. I’ve mentioned how one of the leagues I play in is made up of both current and former Dodger employees. This actually used to be a league that included Dodger players, but eventually evolved into a league for the front office.

QUARTERBACK RANKINGS, WEEK 10

It’s staying hot in AZ as Kyler Murray’s potentially historic season continues with his battle with Josh Allen. Tua vs. Herbert down in Miami will be a fun battle of the top 2020 picks. And will Jared Goff keep up with Russell Wilson? Here are the Week 10 rankings:

LOS WAIVERS, WEEK 10: JAKOBI MEYERS GOT ME…

Growing up in LA in the 1970s, television was a big part of my life. Watching shows like Happy Days, Three’s Company and Welcome Back Kotter showed me a lot about American life. Even learned several American terms to grow my vocabulary.

TAKEAWAYS WEEK 9: JOSH ALLEN IS BACK!

I can’t tell you how wonderful it was to look around Sunday morning and see that weather was not going to be a factor in NFL games. Many of us were still stinging from the previous week, when Mother Nature just laid waste to so many games that looked to be so enticing. The Browns-Raiders game, with both secondaries in the bottom third against the pass, but there was no passing of significance to happen in that game.

ADENTRO Y AFUERA WEEK 9 WR/TE: GOLDEN OPPORTUNITIES

I remember last year how so many pass catchers were riding high before Halloween. They must have had too much candy corn, because many slowed down as the weather got decidedly cooler and played a factor on the field.
