Fantasy Football 2012: A St. Louis Rams Blogger Offers An Eccentric Path To Victory

We're coming up on that time of year where all of your friends run frantically to the grocery store to buy a copy of the handiest 2012 Fantasy Football guide, so as to avoid looking foolish during the draft. So far as I can tell, not looking foolish is much more important to the average fantasy football player than actually winning the league. So I'm not sure how many buyers 3k, over at Turf Show Times, is going to find for his new Fantasy Football Guide of Champions, which seems designed to make the average fantasy football player look... I think eccentric is the right word.

First move: Go for a center, who'll have his hands on the ball more often than any other player in football. 3k's pick, backed by the analytics for which he is justly famous:

3k's pick: Will Montgomery, Washington Redskins. Montgomery connected on an impressive 99.82% of his snaps last season. Jeepers creepers!

I literally cannot argue with that. His other suggestions include picking up players off the waiver wire and stalking your more successful friends until you have mimicked their habits and created a kind of John Frum-style fantasy football cargo cult. Worth a shot.
