5 Signs You’re Addicted To Fantasy Football


This time of the year there is one huge obstacle to finding any semblance of work and life balance - fantasy football.

As I debated my starting lineup yesterday and digested the stats and scores from around the league, I came up with 5 signs that you’re addicted to fantasy football.

  1. You picked up Sage - and I don’t mean at the grocery store. Sage Rosenfels orchestrated an unbelievable come from behind effort as he directed the Houston Texans back from a 32-7 deficit. Unfortunately the Tennessee Titans pulled out the victory in the closing seconds on Rob Bironas’ NFL record-setting 8th field goal of the game. If you even thought of picking up Sage Rosenfels for your team, you’re addicted to fantasy football.

  2. You know the names of more than three tight ends in the NFL. When you can rattle off the names of not only the starting tight ends for each team but you also know many of the backup tight ends, you’re addicted to fantasy football.

  3. You wake up early on Sunday morning to submit a question to the ESPN fantasy chat about which kicker you should start. When you are asking other people for feedback on which kicker you should use to replace Nate Kaeding, you’re addicted to fantasy football.

  4. You know more about Rudi Johnson’s hamstring than you do about what your kids did last week. When it comes to your starting lineup each week it is important to know about any injuries. But when you know more about a stranger’s hamstring, knee, or back, you’re addicted to fantasy football.

  5. You have ever rooted against your favorite team. While I’ve never wanted to see my favorite team lose, I’ve been guilty of hoping for an offensive explosion with my team on the victorious side. If you’ve ever found yourself regretting the success of a player on your favorite team, you’re addicted to fantasy football.

I’d love to share more with you but I need to go check the latest injury news and see if there is anyone I need to add from the waiver wire!

    Haha. I did not grow up in the United States so I never really got into football. I, however, play fantasy baseball AND basketball, so I’m playing fantasy sports all year long. I know how it is. =)

    This can potentially be a stand-up routine, heh.

    @Kelvin :: Yes, my summer is consumed with fantasy baseball but I’ve been lucky to stay away from fantasy basketball and hockey.

    @Derrich :: Lol, you picked up Sage Rosenfels didn’t you? :)
