Social (Fantasy) Network: You’re the man

In the pantheon of quotable movies, Swingers sometimes gets overlooked. Yes, we all talk about how “money” someone is and get all teary-eyed when your boy is “all growns up”. But there are some lesser-known gems in the film.

Which brings us to this week’s edition of the Social (Fantasy) Network. As a fantasy manager, you’re the one who puts the players in place to earn a championship. But it’s the guy behind the guy behind the guy┬áthat helps you get there. So this week, we’re asking the question: Which player(s) are you counting on to help you make the fantasy playoffs.

That’s a tough one to argue. Besides, drafting well is the first cornerstone of a championship fantasy squad. The second cornerstone is finding quality options off the waiver wire. Just ask Kris.

Ah yes, you can’t forget about taking advantage of a favorable schedule. Which is what should give you hope if you have a certain quarterback playing in the state of Texas.

If we were talking about the real playoffs, I’d be nervous for you. But since we’re talking fantasy postseason, I like your chances. Meanwhile, we can’t forget about that all-important fantasy principle — praying for good luck.

While you’re sitting around hoping, let me remind you what Red told Andy Dufresne about hope. After you’ve done that, take a listen to David, who gets this week’s final word.

Quoting Jim Mora is always a winner.

Who are you banking on to help you make that playoff push? Hit us up in the comments section and let us know. And as always, keep an eye out for next week’s #SocialFantasy question. Happy Week 11 everybody!
