Week 2 fantasy football cheat sheet

(Each week, the PFF Fantasy cheat sheet will have all the relevant fantasy football content for the week in one place for you to keep track and review as needed as you prepare for that week in fantasy.)

Just a funny story, not really anything fantasy actionable here:

Last year was a miserable fantasy year in my longtime home league. Through some good drafting and trades, my team was amazing. A superflex, I had Aaron Rodgers, Lamar Jackson, Jameis Winston. I had Joe Mixon, Marlon Mack, James White. I had Julio Jones, Odell Beckham Jr., George Kittle. It was so good.

It also went 5-8 and missed the playoffs. Of those eight losses, seven came by under 5 points. I literally (literally) led all seven into the fourth quarter of that week’s Monday night game. If Monday night games were three quarters long, my fantasy team last year would have gone 12-1. It was awful.

Fast forward to this year. I went into Monday down 23 points with Josh Jacobs and the Broncos defense left to play. I have twin almost-2-year-olds, so there was zero chance I was staying up for that game. So in the morning, I checked it. The Broncos defense put up a cool 0, but Jacobs put up 24 … including a fourth-quarter touchdown. I trailed into the fourth quarter of Monday night and won. If that’s the universe’s way of apologizing for 2018, I accept.

That’s all. Just thought that was funny. On to the Week 2 advice.
