To: Melissa Jacobs From: Pat Fitzmaurice Funny how quickly things change in fantasy football, isn’t it? Only a month ago, on the eve of the new season, the consensus top five running backs were LeSean McCoy, Jamaal Charles, Adrian Peterson, Matt Forte and Eddie Lacy. As of now, those five rank 26th, 25th, 65th, 13th and 44th, respectively, in RB fantasy scoring. Peterson’s problems obviously aren’t football-related, and Charles lost one full game and most of another to injury. But McCoy has been a colossal disappointment, Forte hasn’t found the end zone yet, and Lacy hasn’t had a 50-yard game yet,…

From: Melissa Jacobs                              Yesterday at 4:06 PM To: Pat Fitzmaurice Tis’ the fantasy season’s worst week. We’re still reeling from an onslaught of injuries and now SIX teams need a vacation?? Oy! To me, this part of the season is a close second to the draft in terms of importance.

It’s not because the NFL is going to hell; it’s that some jerk in my fantasy league outbid me for Bobby Rainey, the Bengals defense and Mohamed Sanu. Ugh. Now that I’m temporarily stuck with Jake…

Oh wait, what happened to that article? Dammit. I don’t know about you but I’ll let some other owner blow their auction dollars on Hurns.  Loved…

Despite Yahoo’s “National Draft Day” last Saturday, I imagine the next eight days being by far the highest concentration of drafts. While I’d love to bandy about good team names (still in need of an absolute killer) or share my thoughts on Fox’s new…
