Week 7 Fantasy Football: Who’s Up, Who’s Down?

Last week in this space, I took the time to celebrate my fantasy team ascending to the top of my league for the first time in three years. This week, my team lost to a squad that featured Buffalo practice-squad call-up Thad Lewis as its quarterback.

It’s been more than 24 hours and I’m still trying to figure out how this happened. The only explanation I can come up with is that I jinxed myself by telling you all about my success last week. That was some fast-acting karma.

Anyway, the lesson to be learned here is that fantasy football can be a crazy game sometimes. It’s my job to help you make sense of that craziness, my defeat at the hands of a quarterback with exactly one prior career start notwithstanding. With that in mind, think of these trends as a way to daaaa-ble check your team before Week 7 begins.
