Fantasy Hoops: (Almost) Nowhere to go but up

Somehow, I'm actually better at fantasy hockey.

Fantasy Hoops: (Almost) Nowhere to go but up


Somehow, I'm actually better at fantasy hockey.

After another rough week, I decided to try my talents on the ice. Shockingly, I finished in second place. Needless to say, that was better than how I finished in our NBA league - 12th place out of 16 is not acceptable.

I am going to offer my Tim Kitzrow Picks of the Week once again, but I won't blame you if you disregard my advice.

However, if you want some advice for hockey, I will be more than willing to give you some tips. But I can't guarantee anything there, either.
