NFL FANTASY PREVIEW 2008
Everything you need to know to rule your league this season. And one guy who'd probably still beat you.

Aggressive trades, stealth waiver pickups, ballsy lineup moves—the guy is a seer. Halfway through the season, the finals are inevitable: you and him.
Tips for kicking luck to the curb this fantasy football season
