Fantasy Forecast: Vikings matchup favors Dalton

MERIDIAN —     This is the next-to-last Wednesday “pickup” article that will run this year. I know, sad huh? Don’t worry, the Saturday article still has several weeks as I imagine most of you will play in playoff leagues.

    With there being no Thursday night game, to keep me short I wanted to take a moment to let you get to know me. I am a 27-year-old Pastor who grew up in Philadelphia Mississippi as a huge Brett Favre and Packers fan. About five years ago I had the idea to write an article like this and sent it to a Mississippi paper. The sports guy loved the idea and asked me to write a sample article. I was ecstatic. I wrote the article and really put a lot into it.     Then he emailed me back… He loved it too. So, things were looking really good, and then he talked to his boss and the idea was immediately shut down. So, I put it behind me and just continued playing fantasy football as a past time. I have since moved to South Mississippi and back to Central Mississippi and decided to give it another shot. I sent an email to Tony Tsoukalas (sports editor for this paper), and he made it happen. So thanks Tony, and thanks readers as well. If you like the article let Tony know (his email and extension are on the website or on Twitter @Tony_Tsoukalas). If you don’t like it, keep that a secret. So, Brett is retired, and I am a Falcons fan now. Here’s for hoping Clowney falls to us in April.

    Oh, and for the whole reason you are reading, here are some guys that could possibly merit some playing time on your team this week (or in week 17 if you have 2 week final).
