The Hive – Week Twelve Edition

The Hive – Week 12 Edition

Welcome back to The Hive! Ahhhh, Thanksgiving. Time for turkey, pie, and lots of football! We are in the home stretch of the fantasy season, and in most leagues the pretenders have been separated from the contenders. The fantasy playoffs for some leagues start in the next 2 weeks, which is unbelievable. Seems like yesterday I was preparing for my IDP drafts. Time sure flies by. Keep in mind that with the Thursday games upon us The Hive comes to you before the Thursday and Friday injury reports are out, so don’t forget to check out my Twitter feed @ http://twitter.com/thehiveIDP for the latest up-to-date IDP injury updates and roster maneuvers!
