It took only two weeks for all of us to be reminded that sometimes fantasy football just doesn’t make any sense.

Did you have high expectations for Kerwynn Williams? This guys did, and boy was he ever disappointed:


Always be sure to set your lineups, folks. You may not end up being as lucky as this dude who didn’t:


Sometimes family and fantasy football just don’t mix:


And finally, perhaps my two favorite stories of the week:

Good luck in week 3!!!
