We’re slipping into the middle of the season as the weeks go flying by. So here, I made this Fantasy Mixtape Week 8 for you: Hold on TIGHT.
Mixtape 8 Track 1
Did you know that Sunday was national tight end’s day? I thought about making Track 1, “Baby Got Back” by Sir Mix-A-Lot, or maybe “Bootylicious” by Destiny’s Child. However, I won’t. I won’t talk about “Shake Your Booty” by KC and the Sunshine Band or “My Humps” by the Black Eyed Peas. I’m more professional now, which is why I won’t bring up “Honkey Tonk Badonkadonk” by Trace Adkins or “Fat Bottomed Girls” by Queen. Instead, I’ll just link a video of every touchdown caught by a tight end on national tight ends day in Week 7.
Mixtape 8 Track 2
Our second track goes out to everyone that tinkers with their lineups each week. Who doesn’t love to “click, click” their way through the weekend? Maybe you spend Sundays flipping Courtland Sutton or Elijah Mitchell from your bench to your lineup. Or perhaps you can’t decide which defense to stream each week. “What the hell is wrong with me?” “It’s all inside of me. It's all inside of me, it’s all inside of my head!” Just let your fingers do the work with a simple “click, click” and “boom!”, hours later your lineup is set.
Mixtape 8 Track 3
Let’s slow things down a bit with Track 3. This song goes out to the players on injured reserve. Did you draft Michael Thomas? What about Kareem Hunt, Chris Carson, or Christian McCaffrey? The IR is nothing to play with, but it isn’t permanent.“These days of dust which we've known will blow away.” Soon, these guys will be back and I will be holding the Championship Trophy. Until then… “I will wait.” That’s right, “I will wait for you” David Montgomery.
Mixtape 8 Track 4
On the other hand, “I have a story, a bitter anthem for everyone to hear about this kid.” He keeps sending out trade offers with injured players he drafted. He thinks we don’t keep up with the news, and he can pull one over on us. No Jordan, we aren’t falling for it. We didn't believe in him, you did; now deal with your Matthew Berry Toilet Trophy.
He’s in the group chats talking smack, but then he acts like the world is out to get him when he loses each week. “If you see Jordan, he makes me sick.”
Bonus Smack Track
This last track is to help inspire you with some smack talk. If you’ve been keeping up with The SmackZone, you’ve seen Mike write about Fantasy Head Games. I’m here to support the interaction. Next time you’re facing someone you know you’re going to destroy, recommend listening to Radioactive or Demons. Tell them you forget who sings it. When they remind you the band is called Imagine Dragons, you tell them to Imagine Dragon these nu... you get the idea.
