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 17

WR Michael Thomas and QB Drew Brees NO

So you think you know fantasy football? I drafted 10th in my 10-team league. My first draft pick was quarterback Drew Brees and my second draft pick was wide receiver Michael Thomas. And yes, I still made it to the finals.

Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger Pittsburgh Steelers

With quarterback Ben Roethlisberger having only 7 yards passing, something is amok. I guess this is just a weird year. This means that I can proudly say Christmas being early is the least of my worries as I am actually in the finals of my fantasy football championship.

TE Rob Gronkowski & QB Tom Brady Tampa Bay

Who knows who my TE will be but that has been my issue since I dropped TE Rob Gronkowski after 5 weeks of just awful performances. But he is now back and playing for one of the teams in our Final Four. Oh, the humanity.

Christmas Playoffs

Week 13 is the final regular season game in my fantasy football league. And in a fantasy football league first, for this writer and probably the first in fantasy football history, I will not know the outcome of my week ...

Brady_Goodell_Poster_1

New England going into Week 11 has a two-game winning streak to get to 4-5. Usually this time of year, it is a forewarning to the rest of the league that while they were standing still, the team was figuring things out and accelerating toward another Super Bowl.

QB Joe Burrow CIN

I decided to go big or go home last week. I was playing against Irv, who just so happens to be the manager who has won our fantasy football league each of the last two years. He is a very talented fantasy football player so I needed to pull a rabbit out of my hat.

Fall Leaves in New England

How much cider and apple pies and pumpkin patch picking can you prepare for? Well, not enough my friends. Everyone seems to be driving 40 miles per hour or less and they are bedazzled by the wonderful colors brought forth by Mother Nature. Foliage is Covid-19 friendly just like drive-ins! Who knew?

WR Cole Beasley BUF

We had a Tuesday Night Football game between the “So this is what a field looks like” Tennessee Titans and the “Hey our QB Josh Allen was taken after Sam Darnold in the same draft” Buffalo Bills that kept Tennessee with a perfect record.

DIARY OF A FANTASY VIRGIN: Week 5

QB Cam Newton New England Patriots

The shocker of the week was announced that QB Cam Newton of the Patriots tested positive for Covid-19 and the game was moved to a Monday Night game if there were no more positive tests. There were no more positive tests and the game was played Monday night.

Fall Leaves in New England

The end of Summer has come and gone. It is the time where New England locals bid a fond farewell to the hummingbird although ours left officially on 8/31. When you are quarantining it appears that you seem to notice things like this.

WR_Will_Fuller_V_HOU_1

A portmanteau is the creation of a word out of two words. Like smog is the combination of smoke and fog. My portmanteau is loffense. A combination of lacking with offense describes my season so far. I miss my offense and Will Fuller who went for 19 last week ended up with 0 points this week.

DIARY OF A FANTASY VIRGIN: Divisional Weekend

QB Lamar Jackson BAL

Next up are the Tennessee Titans and Derrick Henry traveling to Baltimore Ravens and to deal with their talented QB Lamar Jackson. Lamar Jackson has to prove he can win in the playoffs and I say he struggles. Upset alert as the Titans run all over Baltimore.

QB Drew Brees NO

The narrative for this week is that the following will occur: QB Drew Brees will pass for more than three touchdowns because that is what he needs for the overall record over former QB Peyton Manning. He passed for exactly four touchdowns and delivered the win.

TE_Zach_Ertz_PHI_1

I was leading by eight points as late as 11:15 p.m. on Monday Night and tight end Zach Ertz caught a touchdown to send the game into overtimes. Then I was up by those same two points until tight end Zach Ertz caught the game-winning touchdown and went for 30 points on me. I lose on the last play of the game.

Hello and greetings. For everyone in the normal world, I have news. It is snowing in New England with an unusual flurry. However, we are better in New England at handling the elements than most. So it is without further ...

Richard_Sherman_Holding_Turkey_1

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone I know and don’t know. I will be giving thanks this year for what my family possesses. I wish your time with your family brings about a more Norman Rockwell moment with that turkey than a National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation sequence of events with the same type of bird.

Star Wars Chewbacca Storm Trooper

QB_Tom_Brady_NEP_3

What I noticed about football is that if a team is doing well or if a team is doing poorly they seem to mention the same list of issues. The only difference is the record of the team. I guess that means during football season there is always something to talk about.

Pumpkin_Head_Cleveland_Fan_1

Halloween is here and that means it is time for ghouls and ghosts and other costumes to take to the streets and haunt the early evening on Oct. 31. It is a trick and treat kind of week so I am going to mention all items coming into Week 9 that are treats. In this era of all things offense, there are plenty of treats to hand out.

Frost on Pumpkins

So get out and enjoy. The winter always feels longer in the Northeast. Our summer may have been a precursor to the real bitter cold winds yet to arrive. This in-between time keeps pulling at you until the first frost on that pumpkin on my doorstep.

DIARY OF A FANTASY VIRGIN: Week 7

QB Baker Mayfield CLE

When my wife asks me who Baker Mayfield is, it means the information she is seeing outside of the game is not properly aligned with the performance on the field. I hope Mayfield pulls it together but the message is just not completely all there. Just like my team this week.
