Rotoworld: Browns Win the Wild Card Weekend

We had our first Super Wild Card Weekend and not only was it super, but it was indeed wild. Every game, except maybe the Bears-Saints game, was full of action with plenty of storylines heading into and emerging from each game. Without a doubt, the game that captured the weekend was the Browns explosive rematch victory against their arch rival Pittsburgh Steelers who will watch the rest of the 2020 season stunned on their couches.

Rotoworld: Get Ready For The Super Wild Card Weekend

It’s here! We have a jam-packed weekend full of football with two triple-header days on Saturday and Sunday. The NFL has changed their playoff scheduling so we get even more football to enjoy. The Packers and the Chiefs are both on a bye, but we have plenty of heavy-hitting teams chomping at the bit to get into the next round of the playoffs.

I review the matchups coming up this Sunday and take a look at which teams have the best opportunity to give you the best fantasy scores in Week 17.

I review the game and the fantasy impacts to start off our Week 14 quarter-final matchups for the playoffs.

About Me

Is it just me, or does that pic beg for the caption… “You look really familiar, but I can’t remember your name, so I’m just going to fake smile”?  It does to me, anyway.

Right, about me.  I am a wife to my amazing husband, a stepmother of two, adamant sports fanatic, animal lover, small business owner, and writer.  I graduated Magna cum Laude with a Bachelor of Journalism from the University of Missouri but ended up starting my own business building websites.  Go figure.

Ever since I was a little girl, I have had a love for writing.  In fact, my mom still has my very first book I wrote when I was five.  It was an epic tale about a rat named Steve who lived in a sewer and ate large mouth bass.

Oh, I love the outdoors as well, by the way.  I guess that’s why Steve specifically ate large mouth bass.  Love me some fishing.  And golf.  Basically anything active, unless it’s Sunday morning and I am hungover making food for Football Sunday.  Then I’m not leaving my house and five TVs.

I started playing fantasy football in 2014 thanks to some excellent friends who got me hooked instantly.  I combined my love of football with my passion for writing and …. well, here we are.

You can find my work on the award-winning Fantasy Footballers and at FantasyPros.  I also appear sporadically on podcasts.  Every Wednesday and Friday during the regular season I go Live on Twitter (@stepmomlauren) to discuss starts and sits for Thursday, Sunday, and Monday.  I post those videos to YouTube so don’t forget subscribe to my YouTube channel and click on the bell for notifications!
