Packers XLV

A Fantasy Cheat Sheet from the Head Cheese

Posted August 31st, 2011 @ 07:08pm

Since Thursday night's game is really about determining the final three or four spots on the Packer roster, I thought I'd take a quick break from the Green & Gold and give you my cheat sheet for fantasy football this season.

I'm no expert, but I've been playing since '83 so I've got some fantasy cred.
