We’re in the final stretch of the fantasy football regular season with only four games remaining, so it’s do or die time. However, unless you’ve been truly snakebitten, the ridiculous amount of injuries and roster shakeups could still lead you to the playoffs. It seems like leagues this year are extremely top heavy, with only one or two teams doing well while the rest are languishing at 4-4. Make some savvy plays and pickups and you’ve got a chance to annoy the hell out of those cocky, healthy owners that have been enjoying their good fortune throughout the year.
The byes truly get nasty in Week 9: Arizona, Chicago, Cincinnati, Houston, New England, Washington are all missing. These are dark, dark times.
Start of the Week
Dez Bryant: He’s back, and Dak Prescott loves him. Dez had 14 targets against Philadelphia Sunday night. Fourteen! Sure, he only caught four of them, but let’s chalk that up to Philly’s solid pass D and him shaking the rust off. Now he’ll visit Cleveland where, if he gets 14 targets again, he’s sure to be one of, if not the top WR scorer this week. It’s a match made in heaven.
