Matchups are a active force abaft account calendar decisions in fantasy football. Here are the best and atomic favorable matchups at QB, RB, WR and TE for Anniversary 2 in the NFL.
Their commissioner, Travis Anderson, has been arena for abutting to two decades in a lot of altered leagues, but this alliance — the one he’s been in for added than a decade, the one abounding with abounding of his abutting friends, the one he runs — is the best appropriate to him.
A ambassador for a bounded coffer and a constant Minnesota Vikings fan, Travis is 37 years old. He and his wife Donna accept three sons: Andrew will be 6 in December, Jackson will about-face 3 in January and Ethan is two weeks from his aboriginal birthday.
Husband, father, fantasy junkie.
Travis Anderson is one of us.
Like us, he drafted a aggregation he likes. And like for abounding of us, Anniversary 1 was tough. Added than Drew Brees, it was a poor alpha for his team, The Dirt Merchants. Kareem Hunt could abandoned watch as Tyreek Hill went nuts, Leonard Fournette larboard aboriginal with an injury, and bad matchups and all-a-quiver QB comedy led to atramentous division debuts for Amari Cooper, Allen Robinson and Devin Funchess. But while you were cursing your team, cursing yourself for drafting them, cursing me for advising them, Travis Anderson was active ambidextrous with commodity else.
You see, in aboriginal August, he started accepting headaches. This was awe-inspiring — he’s never gotten headaches before. The aback of his close was affliction a little bit, so he ample it ability be spinal. Visits to chiropractors didn’t advice and not abandoned did it not go away, he started accepting adversity communicating complicated thoughts and explanations, commodity he generally bare to do as allotment of his job. Aback we batten this week, he told me he acquainted emotionally abroad and he knew commodity was wrong. So he absitively to achieve an arrangement to get a CAT scan. Frustratingly, it took him a while to get one, but eventually the day arrived.
While active to get the scan, he got a alarm from his doctor’s office. Travis’ allowance wouldn’t awning it. Don’t get me started on this one, but the allowance would, however, awning an MRI, so they appointed him for a MRI a anniversary later. Travis angry about and collection home. But in the boilerplate of that week, encouraged by his father, Travis couldn’t delay any longer, so he went beeline to the ER and got an MRI.
It was Aug. 23. Travis had a alliance to set up, keepers to decide, and a abstract to basic for. Instead, he was sitting in a doctor’s office, area he abstruse he had a academician tumor.
Within 24 hours, Travis was in surgery, area Dr. Alexander Drofa had appear in from out of boondocks to find, and ultimately remove, the tumor.
As you can imagine, bodies wondered if Travis would accumulate the alliance going. Certainly, no one would accusation him if he capital to shut it down, or akin booty a year off.
But to Travis, that wasn’t akin a consideration.
“I wouldn’t not be able to accumulate the alliance going,” he said. Travis was told to booty it actual accessible for the abutting six weeks, and that was a big agency in befitting the alliance going. “I absolutely adore fantasy,” Travis said. “It gives some action to Sunday afternoons, Monday nights and Thursday nights. It gives me commodity to do anniversary day, anniversary week.”
The league, and fantasy football, provides Travis with an escape and comfort. Commodity blessed to focus on. Aftermost year, addition member, Mike, had been diagnosed with cancer. He, acknowledge goodness, is in absolution now, but it was a continued year. That is why the alliance is called “Win the Battle.”
Travis had spent the antecedent year actuality a bedrock of abutment for Mike. Now it’s Mike’s turn.

Personally, I don’t apperceive how Travis did it. The day afterwards his abstract was the day he would go see his oncologist to get the anatomy after-effects from the surgery. Can you brainstorm accepting to abstract a aggregation alive what was on the agenda the abutting morning?
Me either, but Travis is a bigger man than I. He drafted a able aggregation and the abutting morning he went to see his doctor.
He tells me that while they got 99 percent of his tumor, they didn’t get everything. Best importantly, the bump was not benign.
Travis has academician cancer. A brand IV glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) to be exact.
Thirty-seven years old. Wife, three kids beneath 6 and The Dirt Merchants, four-time champions of the Win the Action league. Travis has a lot to action for, so action he does.
It won’t be easy. He is attractive at six weeks of radiation and lower-dose chemo, bristles canicule a week. Aback he is done with that, he will do six altered cycles of higher-dose chemo at a five-days-on, 23-days-off schedule. And afterwards the aboriginal six weeks, he will charge to abrasion an Optune electrical dispatch cap for, well, basically forever. But to the admeasurement you can be with commodity like this, he told me doctors accept been encouraged by what they accept begin in consecutive tests. And as he said adjoin the end of our conversation, “There are bodies that exhausted this. And I intend to be one of them.”
I accept no doubt, Travis. Because he is not activity into this action alone. Donna, of course, has been a rock. As has his family. And his league, abnormally “Tweets,” as anybody calls Mike.
And now he has all of us. I accept generally announced of the ability of fantasy football, the association and adulation that family, accompany and strangers akin accept for this bold we play. How it brings bodies together, lifts them up and can flash ablaze into akin the darkest of places. This is one of those times.
Travis is on Twitter @TMA2112. He doesn’t cheep much, he tells me, but I am abiding he’d adulation to apprehend from you and apprehend your words of support, advance and love.
Travis will “Win the Battle,” and he will do it with all of us abaft him. That’s a accumulation that includes Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins.
I asked Travis if I could address about his story, so he acutely knew this commodity was coming, but this allotment he doesn’t apperceive until now.
When Travis and I spoke, one of the things I begin out is that, due to active in Fargo — about 235 afar from Minneapolis – he has never apparent a Vikings bold in person.
So aback Kirk Cousins heard about Travis’ story, he said he anon capital to adjust this. Kirk, and the absolute Minnesota Vikings organization, asked me to canyon forth that they would adulation to host Travis and his ancestors at a game, forth with on-field passes for the pregame and annihilation abroad they can do to achieve Travis’ aboriginal Vikings bold a appropriate one. Kirk accurately asked me to acquaint you, Travis, that he can’t delay to accommodated you and your family.
Here at ESPN, we are accepting Travis in blow with The V Foundation to see if there’s annihilation we can do to help.
Because, you see, Travis Anderson is one of us.
Which agency he’s active accepting The Dirt Merchants accessible for Anniversary 2. Aloof like we all are. Let’s get to it.
What follows are a agglomeration of authentic statistical statements. Heavily researched, well-thought-out, 100 percent true, can’t be argued with, absolutely vetted facts.
That tells abandoned allotment of the story. The allotment of the adventure I appetite you see.
Just like anybody abroad does.
And that ability be the best important affair you anytime apprentice about fantasy football research. Nothing you read/watch/hear from me in this cavalcade (or from anyone) or annihilation in the approaching is atramentous and white. It’s all shades of gray.
As you go through the action every anniversary of allotment your lineup, authoritative abandonment claims and barter offers, you’ll apprehend endless analysts accord you all sorts of affidavit why this amateur is alarming and this one is a bum and why you gotta alpha that guy but charge abstain addition one … and it’s all aloof opinions. Facts and stats and snippets of bold blur parsed to appearance you the ancillary that supports their belief. Their opinion. And ONLY that opinion. Aloof bethink that. Consistently bethink that. Question everything, acquisition addition whose cerebration aligns with yours, and achieve a call. Because that’s what all of us are doing. Taking a allotment of a beyond pie and authoritative a call.
What follows beneath is absolutely accurate. Some of it is about players, some of it is about matchups and not a abuse bit of it tells the accomplished story.
