Happiest of birthdays to my wonderful grandpa - he turns 91 today. He's a big fan of the Detroit Tigers and Northwestern and Michigan football - and I think genetically speaking, he's really the one I can thank for my love of football. So three cheers for my grandpa for ultimately making this blog possible!
So I've been spending some of my morning playing around with the Fantasy Football Nerd's lineup analyzer - it's awesome. You need an account (free!) and it's really easy to add in your leagues; the Nerd Analyzer will then compare your roster to the weekly rankings and projections and show you your ideal team, projections included. I was feeling like a smarty pants when the Nerd and I came up with the exact same roster in my BWW All-Star Blogger League, but then I realized I'm sort of in bye-week-plug-in-desperation-mode and a trained monkey could have done what I did. So I put in another team that I play in with my Boulder buddies and other than the suggestion of playing Garrard over Cutler, I matched perfectly with the Nerd again. I'm really feeling good now! Though not sure I can bring myself to start Garrard over Cutler this week after such a painful Jacksonville performance last week. But I say check out the analyzer - it has the power of many expert sites behind it. Sounds pretty amazing, right?
