For too long, fantasy football advice has come to you in one of two forms: via dull written analysis, or from former NFL players on ESPN giving you the sage advice to start Aaron Rodgers (thanks, Merril Hoge!). At long last, there's "Keepers," the fantasy football show that's unafraid to blame players for getting injured. LOOKING AT YOU, KENNY BRITT.
But hold up. You may be asking, "Hey, what are this guy's credentials?" To which I say: what credentials? What credentials CAN a fantasy football "expert" have? Does Andy Behrens have a graduate degree in roto sports? Did Matthew Berry work under the tutelage of Bill James? No, friends, I have the same credentials as every other fantasy expert: I am reasonably good at it, and I have a platform. In your face, people without webcams!
"Keepers" will dispense fantasy football advice every Thursday during the NFL season, but more importantly, it's meant to add some merriment to the otherwise staid business of trying to figure out whether you should start Nate Washington or Davone Bess (Answer: go outside. You will lose today).
So, please enjoy this first episode, which focuses on fantasy drafts. I'll be back next week to talk about Week 1 of the NFL season. Whether I'm right or wrong, I promise it will be fun.
