Kelen Conley: I’ve been delaying starting this column.

October has been one of the roughest months of my life for reasons I’d rather not say. Those reasons are why we’re currently behind on Talking Out The Dead. But I really needed TotD this week after Season 6’s third episode.

Daily Fantasy Sports: Week 10 Lineup Review

In the words of Troy Aikman, “I dwell on the past.”

Week ten continued to be kind to me in daily fantasy sports, as I had another very good week. The commercial that the first quote was playing right as I started typing this, which I thought was fitting since I’m typing about very, very recent history.  A few things that have helped me enjoy this endeavor is the fact that I’ve stayed disciplined with my bankroll, I’ve developed a decent strategy to construct my lineup, and I’ve made some money. (It’s okay, you can mutter the slurs about my egotistical lines now, as I’ve already done so myself!) What can I say; I have to do something that keeps my mind preoccupied from the Black Friday gloom that’s about come. Enough of me babbling, here’s my best lineup from week 10:

What Happened To The Intercontinental Championship?

ic-title

Thomas started writing this in February of 2014 and left it unfinished in March of the same year. His original plan was to cover the entire history of the Intercontinental Championship. I present this to you the way he left it, with only a quick edit done on it. Any errors should be taken up with Anthony Sellers. Thomas and I are not to blame.

Daily Fantasy Sports can, and will, change a man. Trust me, as I’m finding this out from experience. At least for a fantasy sports perspective. As I notice myself spending more and more time focusing on my weekly lineups, which for me is on Fanduel, I’ve come to realize the advantages of trusting my gut as well as doing a little bit of research on matchups. Because of those two things, I’ve done really well this season for DFS leagues, especially given the limited bankroll that I’ve given myself. Sometimes you have to ball on a budget.

The Inspiration Of Grantland

gl

On October 30, 2015, ESPN officially shut down Grantland.com. While not completely unexpected with their firing of Bill Simmons in May, the move still shocked many, even with Grantland staffers moving on in the months following the Sports Guy’s departure. This move on ESPN’s part was a bummer for me because Grantland was the standard bearer of internet excellence for the longest time in my mind.

Talking Out The Dead: “JSS”

Kelen Conley: Holy Wolves at the walls.

Again, this episode really has me hopeful for the direction the show is going. It’s seems like they’re ready to attempt stepping outside of the box of being just a zombie show. At the end of the day, it’s obviously a zombie show, but they’re focusing more on the elements that make a show great.
