I have only recently discovered Fantasy Football and am, consequently, mildly addicted. I check my stats almost daily. My computer is locked in to the Live Scoring page beginning at 12:30 pm on Sunday. I’ve never been so interested in the NFL Sunday Preview on ESPN as I am now. Mike Nelson thinks he may have reached nirvana.

But the joy often lasts only as long as an injury time out. I was excited to have originally drafted Matt Hasselbeck. Not so much anymore. Jason Witten was tearing it up for weeks, only to go down in Week 8 with an injury to the ribs. Bye weeks kill me – I had at least five players on bye in Week 8.

But I love it. I think I’m into Fantasy for life.
