    Pay your dues…or else

    by  • October 21, 2013 • Culture • 0 Comments

    Don’t be a douche. Fantasy football season is well underway. If you haven’t already, it’s time to pay your dues to your league commish…or maybe the collector will find you?

    Sure, the video’s a little goofy, but it is important to pay your dues. Bugging people to pay up might be the worst thing about being commissioner of a fantasy football league unless you still have trade vetoes.

    If you really have issues, you might give a service like Crowdtilt a try. The big advantage of Crowdtilt is that it requires every member of the league to pay before prize money can be paid out, which means your entire league will put pressure on those stragglers instead of just you as the commish.

    Not a bad trick, right?

    Do franchise quarterbacks deserve all the credit for winning?

    Fantasy Douche has traditionally been one to bust conventions when it comes to NFL truths, written or unwritten. Back in January, he challenged the assumption that a quarterback is the key to a winning franchise by taking a look at the Patriots’ passing game history and what it means to have talented receivers.

    “Obviously the optimal situation is a franchise QB with two wide receivers who can get open at will. But dumpster-fire-QB with two wide receivers who can get open at will ends up beating the franchise QB with two scrub WRs.”

    Aside from the stats Fantasy Douche shares on Tom Brady and his history with good receivers, it’s also timely to note the graph on Matt Schaub, considering how much hate he’s been getting lately.

    Rotoworld’s Evan Silva shared his “20 Trade Targets & 15 Stashes” just before Week 6. Unfortunately, his predictions for Vernon Davis, Eddie Lacy, A.J. Green, and Stevan Ridley may have already come too soon for you to acquire them. But Pierre Garcon, Gronkowski, and Tom Brady are likely to still be available at bargain rates.

    And remember to mind your trade manners.

    Forgive me for the punny title. I didn’t get a lot of sleep this weekend, and I think I’m still operating on Oakland time. But that said…don’t you want four time slots of NFL football EVERY Sunday? Personally, I loved being able to go straight into another one after Sunday Night Football wrapped up,...
