Two weeks through the season and we have a boatload of fantasy disappointments (all in line behind CJNotOK).

In an effort to broaden the eyeballs coming our fair site, I added Reddit to our cocktail of social media late last week. Other than liking and disliking random pieces of content, it was tough to ascertain the site’s intricacies.

Let me start this week’s Startability Index with my Week 9 lock: the Chargers defense! OK, honesty alert, this is being published late Thursday right, well after the Chargers racked up 14-20 fantasy points, depending on your scoring system. Whether you believed this thought circulated in my head beforehand is beside the point. We have a new rule in fa...

Is it really already Week 10, meaning fantasy playoffs are just a blink of an eye away? Well, I better give you some good fantasy advice this week!
