ADENTRO Y AFUERA WEEK 16: LOYALTY? KARMA? GET A TITLE!

If you’re reading this, you’re likely in the championship of your fantasy football league. I’m in two title matches. There are few things that match winning the championship. It’s the culmination of months and hundreds of hours studying and obsessing over players and lineups. We do it for the love of the game. Yes, money leagues bring with them a cash prize, but if you were all doing this for the cash I’d tell you to do something more cost-effective with your time, because few leagues have a payout to match up with the amount of time we all spend on this “casual” pastime.

LOS WAIVERS WEEK 16: CHAMPIONSHIP WEEK

Here we are. Week 16. Championship Week. La Semana del Campeonato. Five months ago when professional sports were starting back up and NFL training camps were opening under incredible safety protocols and scrutiny, this week seemed like a galaxy far, far away. Yet we all were so hungry for anything to take our minds off “regular” life.

ADENTRO Y AFUERA WEEK 15: IN THE PLAYOFFS YOU GOTTA HAVE FAITH

You know how you remember so much about the great calls you make in setting fantasy football lineups? Well, if you’ve been playing fantasy football long enough, you’ll see your share of calls that go wrong. And they stick with you just the same.

LOS WAIVERS WEEK 15: IT’S WINNIN’ TIME!

When it comes to waivers during the fantasy football playoffs, the first priority is to get a player you can insert into your lineup to help you win. It could be an injury replacement, or just taking advantage of an RB who has emerged into a prominent role.

EVERYBODY HURTS: WEEK 14 TAKEAWAYS

The first week of the fantasy football playoffs are almost in the books. Did you ride Derrick Henry, Davante Adams or a Ryan Tannehill-A.J. Brown stack to the next round? Did you lose when Josh Allen kneeled down at the end of the Bills-Steelers game? I actually saw someone post a photo of that corazon roto on Twitter to show proof of that one.

ADENTRO Y AFUERA WEEK 14: OUTHOUSE TO THE PENTHOUSE

I mentioned earlier how I had a team that went on a winning streak after starting the season 0-5. Well, that streak lives. My team is 8-5, just took the points title for the league and is roaring into the playoffs. It’s not great management to draft Davante Adams in the back end of the 1st round and later trade RB and WR depth for Travis Kelce.

SCHEDULING A LEAGUE-WINNER. WHO’S ARRIBA? WHO’S ABAJO?

Living in Southern California my entire life, I’ve been spoiled. Whenever I meet transplants from the Northeast and the Midwest, I tell them that their favorite time of the year is going to be January.

LOS WAIVERS WEEK 14: IT’S WINNIN’ TIME!

My all-time favorite sports hero is Earvin “Magic” Johnson. I may have stated this before. I’ll forever argue that Magic is the greatest basketball player ever. Even greater than Michael Jordan, though LeBron James is catching up to both of them.

ADENTRO Y AFUERA WEEK 13: JOE COOL RULES AS PLAYOFFS LOOM

I’ve made it pretty clear that I grew up a fan of the LA Rams. Jack Youngblood, Jackie Slater, Eric Dickerson… from a football standpoint, those men were almost god-like. The defenses were stifling. The running games, even before Dickerson, were among the best in the NFL. The offensive line was as impenetrable as cinder block, and made stars of guys like Dennis Harrah, Tom Mack and Bill Bain.
