Every week I'm supposed to cover the world of fantasy football and pretend like I know what I'm talking about, maybe even offer my advice. I mean, I play and I'm pretty damn good at it, but I'm no "expert." If there even is such a thing. And let's face it, a lot of fantasy football success is just plain luck.
Which is why I need your help this weekend. I have the incredible misfortune of being that guy playing against T.Y. Hilton, who scored 37 freaking points in my PPR league on Thursday night. So I'm starting Sunday off in a huge freakin' hole. Even worse, my go-to guys Drew Brees and Jammal Charles are both on a bye. I'm in a 12-team league so I'm gonna need to score big with my bench and hope for a little luck.
Here's who I have on my roster. You've got a few hours. Should I flex Witten? Is Jackson gonna play? Should I take a chance on Darrin Reaves? Who would you start? Go!
