FANTASY FOOTBALL HAIKU:
ANY GIVEN SUNDAY (WEEK 5)
BEAST DOME NATION.
Another week of Fantasy Football in the Books. Below you can see my thoughts on every fantasy relevant player that is worth using today. Hopefully this week the BEAST NATION gets Rob Gronkowski back, though I am sure everyone has been more than pleased with Julius Thomas.
This week for the BEASTcast, I plan on having a scripted show put together instead of just Questions and Answers.
But I will also do Questions and Answers.
