We’re back! GooTwitFace with Fantasy Football Fools

There’s nothing like a fresh coat of paint and a nice detail job to put the shine back on a blog before fantasy football season. Fantasy Football Fools was badly in need of a visual update, and this offseason, I finally got a chance to do just that.

Welcome to the new design — and if you’re reading this by email or RSS, please stop by the site to check it out.

As the fantasy football season is quickly approaching, I’ll get right back to it.

Those of you who follow me on Twitter already know I’ve been pretty active throughout the offseason there. I’ve shared articles, had a few laughs, and maybe even posted a few regrettable jokes. Such is tweets.

Once the season starts, I’ll tweet frequently on Sundays during games and whenever there is any breaking NFL news. So follow along to stay ahead of your league and benefit from the insider info and fantasy advice I retweet.

Feel free to tweet me anytime about start or sit advice or waiver wire claims. I respond to those, sometimes even at an unreasonable hour.

In case you were unawares, you can also find Fantasy Football Fools on Facebook and/or Google+ to join our little fantasy football community all over the social Web.

As always, I also encourage you to take advantage of the comments section below to voice your own opinions, ask for fantasy football advice, or just share your best trash talk.

Welcome back. 2012 is going to be a good one. This year, we’re getting absoludicrous.

Now, if you don’t mind, I need to get back to my finger exercises so I can survive a full NFL season of blogging.

Foolish Thoughts: You complete me, 2009 kickoff and site enhancements

The Hall of Fame game was everything I thought it would be last night — a little bit of football surrounded by a media frenzy of interviews. Outside of two catches, we didn’t see much of the Terrell Owens and Trent Edwards show, and I’m not yet convinced that the new no-huddle offense in Buffalo is going to make the Bills a fantasy football force this season.

Then again, it was the Tennessee Titans defense out there, and it doesn’t seem that they’ll be suffering this season without Albert Haynesworth terrorizing quarterbacks up the middle. I’m sure they’ll still miss the big fella when it counts.

As far as highlights go, the most significant play of the game was Vince Young’s touchdown pass to Paul Williams for the Titans’ third score. Drafted in 2007, Williams has been invisible thus far in the NFL with only one career reception. Much like Young, Williams needs to show something this season. The preseason touchdown connection could be the beginning of an upswing for both players.

More important than the game itself, the kickoff of the Hall of Fame game signifies the final stretch before fantasy football season, which I guess is also known as the preseason, and the NFL had me at “hello” this year.

We’re been gearing up for the season already here at Fantasy Football Fools, and we’ve brought a few enhancements to the site to involve you more in all of our fantasy football coverage.
