Angels fans for years have suffered for years because the organization has fallen in love with its hot minor league prospects and failed to trade for proven Major League players. Dallas McPherson, Brandon Wood and Jeff Mathis have all been more hype than production.
The lesson here, sometimes you have to look past the hype. And the same goes for fantasy football.
Jaguars RB Rashad Jennings certainly falls into this category. All week we have been hearing about Jennings. And I am guilty of it, too, having told more than one fantasy enthusiast to start Jenning this week. Jennings had a tasty matchup, he had been playing well with Maurice Jones-Drew, so he seemed like a much start.
Jennings has rushed for 22 yards on 11 attempts. Good bye fantasy season.
Well the bright side here is that second place is not so bad. And it looks like I am going to finish second in at least one league unless Jennings can rally late for the Jaguars and all of us. I will remember this next time somebody is billed as the next great player.
In other words, good luck if you starting Broncos QB Tim Tebow this week.
