As we gather around the table to give thanks for a third NFL game on Turkey Day so we don’t have to actually interact with relatives, the Fantasy Football Party-goers also give thanks for you, the listener. And pumpkin pie.

 

Don’t ask us to prioritize.

 

Gathering a night early so that our respective families may enjoy the same juvenile humor you the listener are treated to on a weekly basis, the Party-goers dished out regrets from last week (John Harbaugh and his rotating backfield is banished to the kiddie table), passed the plate around a full slate of Week 12 games, and served up three 50/50 lineups so delicious we can guarantee there will be no leftovers.

 

Before you chow down on turkey, stuffing (not dressing), and sweet potatoes (preferably with marshmallows, no raisins please)—or after, we’re not the kind to judge—give a listen as Bo directed traffic to and around the turkey hole, 2V tested the limits of both his Zubaz waistband and the PC tolerance of nearby tables, and Magsh conducted the FFP’s first annual turkey drop in the JL Beers parking lot.

 

(Narrator: As God is my witness, he thought turkeys could fly.)

 

Of course, you’ll still get plenty of bullet-point material to drop at the dinner table when Crazy Uncle Ned asks how your fantasy team is doing; multiple helpings of players available in plenty of leagues who could pull your proverbial drumstick out of the fire this week; and a steaming pile of Duke Johnson discussion into which we didn’t even bother to insert Chubb or Smallwood.

 

(Narrator: Be thankful this holiday only comes around once a year.)

A lifelong Minnesotan, Bo helps manage the editorial and research game notes department of Sportradar’s U.S. headquarters in Minneapolis, where he has worked since 2011. Bo has been playing fantasy sports since the late 1980s – before the internet was on computers -- and was a member of the original Fanball.com editorial staff back in the day. His professional fantasy football roots can be traced back to Fantasy Football Weekly – the magazine that set the standard for the industry in the 1990s. He has also toiled in sports radio the past several decades, starting at KFAN in the Twin Cities – where he was a producer and took part in the FFW radio show as a co-host, and more recently at 1500 ESPN. His sports writing has also been featured at places such as ESPN.com, MSN.com, Yahoo.com, FoxSports.com, Vikings Journal, the Star Tribune and Fox Sports North.
