The only thing more absurd than football is how much we all love it. Since there just aren’t enough know-it-all’s spouting off their opinions as facts, we bring you Football Absurdity.
Truth be told, every football and fantasy football expert doesn’t know what the hell they are talking about. You either have ex-athletes trying to predict the unpredictable, but their only real skill was that they spent a few years hitting or running away from other football players. Or you have analysts and experts whose only real skill is yelling at a television while eating assorted fried cheeses.
Though anchored in sound statistical analysis, Football Absurdity’s mission is to rise above the glut of monotonous football dissection websites through humor, illumination of the human condition and house calls to each and every reader. So get ready and put out some chips, we’re on our way.

Jeff Krisko can be found on your local street corner screaming about how you shouldn’t draft tight ends. He’s written for Fantasy Sports Warehouse, The Inscriber Digital Magazine, Fantasy Pros, and has done guest pieces for Uproxx and Scout.com. The Fantasy Sports Writers’ Association worst decision was admitting him as a member. He’s the best fantasy sports player in his house, but it’s questionable if he’s the best one in his neighborhood.
