Redskins coach Mike Shanahan is not only on the list, the list might be named after him. Today is a good example why.
Redskins RB Ryan Torain has already reached the 100-yard scoring bonus, and the game is not even in the second quarter yet. But how many fantasy enthusiasts have left Torain on the bench?
Even yours truly could not recommend starting Torain today, given Shanahan’s history. There are few commandments in fantasy football. Benching a Shanahan running back in the playoffs is certainly one of them.
Now we are forced to sit here in misery while Torain continues to gash the Buccaneers defense, cursing Shanahan’s name. Hopefully Shanahan will inexplicably bench him for the second half. Which, knowing him, might not be out of the realm of possibility.
