Week 11 Observations & Musings: A Look Around the League

by Matthew Gordan

Those expecting a Travis Kelce breakout were surely disappointed, which has been a continuing trend all season. It seems Andy Reid just doesn’t want to comply with the wishes of fantasy owners!

Rotoprofessor Reader Leagues Forming, Sign Up Today!

The first of August is nearing and that means Fantasy Football Season is upon us. Last season we launched our first ever RotoProfessor Readers League and it was a huge success. We had such a great response last season that we are looking to step it up in year two and have three leagues so that more of our readers can participate. Each league will feature at least one if not more writers from the RotoProfessor staff as well as a number of readers.

We will have one standard league, one PPR league and one IDP league which will feature 0.5 PPR as well.

If you want to participate in one of these leagues all you need to do is send me an e-mail at and reserve your spot today. In the e-mail I need your full name, e-mail address and a brief one or two sentence explanation for why you want to complete in one of the leagues. I also need you to specify your league preference by ranking your preferred league to play in 1 – 3 with 1 being the league you’d most want to compete and 3 being the league you’d least like to compete in.

So get on it and start signing up now!
