Author of the Weekly Series "Diary of a Fantasy Virgin" since opening day of FantasySharks.com. That particular date? It was September 12, 2002 when my first article was published on this site. It has been a great ride ever since.

DIARY OF A FANTASY VIRGIN: Week 14

RB Phillip Lindsay DEN

On the last week of our fantasy football season, RB Phillip Lindsay, RB James Conner, and QB Deshaun Watson went for a combined 70 points. Only Phillip Lindsay went for a 28 burger but that was enough. I have been winning by getting 90 points from my Top 3 players and coasting in.

Steelers_Thanksgiving_2016_1

Hello and Happy Thanksgiving to everyone.  I consider it one of the greatest holidays because most people get Thursday and Friday off.  How cool is that? So enjoy your Turkey.  Enjoy your stuffing.  Devour that pumpkin pie.  Thanksgiving is a ...

QB Patrick Mahomes Kansas City Chiefs

Week 11 has arrived.  We are nearing the home stretch and the Bye weeks are getting down to the final count.  Every week is important and sometimes your team cannot find the end zone.  Somehow it becomes critical to try ...

QB Deshaun Watson HOU

Happy Halloween! There is a lot going on my friends. Personally and impersonally we have learned nothing. However, we are closing in on a solution. The NFL season is winding up and it is on full tilt. Generally speaking, there ...

DIARY OF A FANTASY VIRGIN: Week 7

Pumpkin_Head_Cleveland_Fan_1

This part of the year focuses on the harvest. The pumpkin patch. The end of apple picking season. The preparation for Halloween festivities. The danger of wishing back that hot summer when there is a hint of snow in the air. I want to let Don Henley know that for adults this is the time we should lament the end of Summer.

DIARY OF A FANTASY VIRGIN: Week 6

QB Carson Wents PHI & RB Jay Ajayi PHI

Where is the season going? It is on fast forward and I lost running back Jay Ajayi. Just when you thought the reigning Super Bowl Champions would be forced to run the football they find themselves without a running back and one game under .500.

Ryder_Cup_2016_1

Despite starting out 3-1 on the opening four matches day one, the US went on to only earn 7 ½ more points out of a possibility of 24 more to be had. In the end Team Europe took back the Ryder Cup with a score of 17 ½ to 10 ½ . It was ugly and we make no excuses. The US Ryder Cup team seems more out-of-synch on European soil than ever before.

Happy Week 4 in the NFL my friends and we are witness to history. Tiger Woods wins a golf tournament! The actual Fed Ex Cup Tournament Championship no less!  That takes temerity!  Now back to the NFL. Did you notice ...

DIARY OF A FANTASY VIRGIN: Week 3

Red Sox

Only two changes but the Red Sox have the best record in all of baseball. Their record is 103-47 as of this writing. That is 56 games over .500, and to put it bluntly, the team hits the ball and this team wins regular season baseball games. It just doesn’t make sense to see a team win 103 games with 12 more games to play.

DIARY OF A FANTASY VIRGIN: Week 2

Mount Rushmore

What do you do when you turn 50? I asked that question earlier this year and came up with a long weekend in Rapid City South Dakota to see Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse Memorial, and Custer State Park. So I got these off of my bucket list and it was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Here are some takeaways.

DIARY OF A FANTASY VIRGIN: Division Weekend

HC_Bill_Belichick_NEP_1

I predicted that Kansas City's defense would scheme the heck out of quarterback Marcus Mariota; it worked a little bit but it gave way after a freak own catch resulted in the first touchdown for Tennessee. I think Bill Belichick is going to really-really scheme quarterback Marcus Mariota. This means easy time for New England at home as they carry on this week.

Next_Year_Will_Be_Different_1

Listen my friends.  It has come to pass that the statutory system is involved in an automatic interval.  This is my gift to my friends on this holiday  The system is very Jimmy Garoppolo and I am nonetheless affected. Certainly ...

DIARY OF A FANTASY VIRGIN: Week 16

QB_Tom_Brady_NEP_2

Ben Roethlisberger fakes a spike and throws it late over the middle to only have it get tipped and intercepted … and a loss! What is up with New England and these crazy within the moment games? It was Tom Brady’s 51st comeback in his career. Fifty Freaking One!

TE_Jimmy_Graham_SEA_2

It is a sad day when the quest for fantasy football dominance ends but it did today on none other than Jimmy Graham ... the fourth-ranked tight end in fantasy football. If he got his 11 points per game I would be moving on.

WR_Robby_Anderson_NYJ_1

It was awesome to see the long throw from QB Josh McCown to Robby Anderson in a Nerf Football moment of my youth. It happened that way. And the virginator pulled out a win. I am 7-5 heading into the last week of our Fantasy Football League.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone and may the holiday bring much-needed time for whatever your tradition has become. It seems like the traditional Norman Rockwell scene has been replaced with chaos and of course the National Football League. The first Thursday ...

QB_Jared_Goff_LAR_1

This Is Really My Team? This is the kind of stuff that comes out of your mouth on Wednesday evening. After all of the injuries like Aaron Rodgers, and all of the surprises like how about them New Orleans Saints or Los Angeles Rams, you could have your head spinning.

DIARY OF A FANTASY FOOTBALL PLAYER: Week 10

WR_Will_Fuller_V_HOU_1

This of course alludes to the unfortunate “non-contact” injury accidentally received by the greatest 2017 NFL player in the name of Deshaun Watson. Not only is his talent in question for 2017 but his receivers are too. I am talking about you Will Fuller.

Justin_Timberlake_1

Oh that NSYNC. Yes I am talking to you Chris Kirkpatrick, Joey Fatone, Justin Timberlake, JC Chasez, and Lance Bass. You haunt the virginator’s articles when more than three players on my team are on a bye. And when I find myself in this dilemma it ain’t no lie, I should be losing.

DIARY OF A FANTASY VIRGIN: Week 6

QB Deshaun Watson HOU

So I may have been too early to quit on Cam Newton but that is OK. I will have him in my back pocket until Deshaun Watson stops throwing down 40-burgers. Deshaun went for 48 points this week in a losing cause.

MISC_PRESIDENTS_CUP_1

The Americans came out charging. They almost clinched the Presidents Cup on Day 2 taking a 14½ to 3½ lead. The U.S. only needed 15½ points to secure the cup and they did on Sunday. The course and its vistas were resplendent with the New York City skyline in the background.

TE_Jimmy_Graham_SEA_1

My team had a horrible week highlighted by Jordy Nelson going for zero with a quad issue and Jimmy Graham going for one point with an ankle. I hope both players get better soon! Uh oh. The best player on my team was my kicker Matt Bryant, with 16 points. The second best was my defense with Kansas City going for 14 points. You have got to be kidding me.
