Viva Murillo!: Now What?

As I mentioned in a previous column, it doesn't really pay to hedge your bets in playoff fantasy football. You need guys who will be playing in February, and a winning roster normally belongs to someone who chose the right teams to make it to the Super Bowl. If you don't have a sense of who will be there, just pick two and pray. But what if your prayers weren't answered? What if you picked wrong? Unfortunately, redrafting isn't really an option. You'd need enough players who want to play for a couple more weeks and put it all together before the games on Sunday. Realistically, that's not going to happen. So your fantasy season over, or is there something you can do to keep the fun going? Yes, your options are limited, but they do exist. We'll explore some below.   more »

Factoid: Aaron Rodgers

Packers (and Titans) fans are hurting today, with their teams being the first No. 1 seeds to both lose on opening weekend since 2010. Why even try to earn a first-round bye? Neither Green Bay nor Tennessee seemed to gain an advantage from it. In any case, it was the latest in a long string of playoff disappointments for likely MVP Aaron Rodgers.   more »
