By a show of hands how many of you have been in love? Wow! That’s quite a bit! How many of you love fantasy football? Wow! That’s even more of you! What lengths would you go for your kids? Or significant others? Safe to say to the end of Earth? Or even the moon? How about your fantasy football teams?

The longer we play fantasy football the more connected we become. Do you remember your first ever fantasy football draft? What about that one guy who carried your team to a fantasy Championship?

Quick story if I may. In 2005 I drafted Carolina WR Steve Smith. The previous few seasons I was never a fan of his. He wasn’t anything special. Small guy with a big mouth right? I drafted him as my WR3ish with little to no excitement. Well Steve Smith went on to have a career season in all statistical categories. 103 catches, 1,563 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns. He carried my team to a fantasy Championship and I was in love!

I will always love Steve Smith and it set in motion a sequence of fantasy football events that I still carry to this day. Here are a few.

Always get you guy! Draft or trade for the guy you enjoy watching!
Don’t listen to the clowns in your league who put you down for the choices you make!
Fantasy football is supposed to be fun! The moment it’s not, walk away.

That brings me to the topic of this article. Who are some fantasy football players you just can’t get over? Once again I asked social media and everybody came through in a big way!
