I only started playing "fantasy" football about 3 years ago. I totally suck at it too. It makes no sense at least not from a "Fans" point of view.
Those of you who know me - know that I've always been a Cowboy fan. Yes, I had Jets season tickets - but I a Cowboy fan none-the-less.
So yesterday - I am destroying my opponent. By the end of the 4:00 games the computer is telling me I've got a 97 % chance of winning. The only way I lose is if his one guy left to play scores 36 or more points.
Problem is...his one guy is Zeke Elliott. Dallas running back. I want to route for the 'Boys to score, and score a lot...but I'm secretly hoping that Elliott drops the ball on the one yard line so someone else can score.
I'm rooting against myself - Whiskey Tango Foxtrot?
I'm still not sure how a player scores fantasy points but - Zeke scored 36.5 - yes. I lost.
When I was younger, I'd fantasize about being a Cowboy. No, not a Dallas Cowboy - I real cowboy. Like with a horse...and a pistol. Oh, yeah and a Cowgirl.
