WEEK 16 ADENTRO Y AFUERA, IN THE DANCE & FELIZ NAVIDAD

Familia, I still have scars from Christmas 2020. I had a team that was on a 10-game winning streak, with Davante Adams and AJ Brown just rolling people every week. It was a remarkable team built on a deep draft and a late-round QB – Ryan Tannehill – that hit big.

WEEK 15 ADENTRO Y AFUERA 1.0, STAY COOL

IAs I’ve said before, I’m a huge Bruce Springsteen fan. I’ve seen him in concert more than a dozen times over the Remember March 11, 2020? Of course you do. That was the day that all COVID hell was breaking loose everywhere. Major sports leagues shut down operations either that day or right after. Sports stars were getting COVID. Major movie stars like Tom Hanks were testing positive around the world. Everyone seemed to be hoarding beans, rice, potatoes and bananas at the grocery stores. Un desmadre, as we’d say in Spanish.

WEEK 15 LOS PEEKUPS, PLAYOFFS & ADIOS, ADIOS TO A LEGEND

Sometimes there are losses that just really gnaw at you. This has been a fairly successful season for me, personally. A great number of my teams are 8-5 and looking good for the playoffs. A couple have even survived significant-to-Familia, I want to take a moment before we talk about football to mention the gargantuan loss that the entire country of Mexico is feeling. Vicente Fernandez, aka Chente to the masses, passed away on Sunday on the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe.

WEEK 14 ADENTRO Y AFUERA, ONE BIG QUESTION 1.0

I already talked about win and you’re in for the fantasy playoffs. In my leagues, I haven’t seen any 11-2 or 10-3 teams. There have been a lot of 9-4, 8-5 and 7-6 teams. I haven’t seen too many teams with a combination of Jonathan Taylor, Cooper Kupp and Deebo Samuel on the rosters. So, like injuries, it looks like the dominant players are more spread out this season.

WEEK 14 LOS PEEKUPS, TRUST IN YOUR PROCESS

Sometimes there are losses that just really gnaw at you. This has been a fairly successful season for me, personally. A great number of my teams are 8-5 and looking good for the playoffs. A couple have even survived significant-to-catastrophic injuries to the likes of Christian McCaffrey, Saquon Barkley and Nick Chubb. Those teams that are headed for postseason play are doing so in good position. Maybe not as favorites, but I’ve been the favorite plenty of times and had my nose bloodied by a #6 seed. Just get in the tournament.

WEEK 13 LOS PEEKUPS, GOING BACK FOR LEFTOVERS

After last week when I almost didn’t write this column because the pickings were as limited as a Thanksgiving turkey carcass after everyone in our Familia had seconds, this week is different. There are players you need for both this week and to possibly help you in your playoff run.
