Would you believe it if I told you that one of my fantasy football leagues has just opened up for the season earlier this week? It seems pretty crazy since it is only the middle of June but draft day is only a few months away! It is time to begin making predictions, read what fantasy pundits are saying about and talking trash to others in the league. This is the second year in a row I have received an unfortunate draft position, this year is the 5th overall pick in a 12-team league. So, while I waste a few hours this weekend reading up football you can have a more productive weekend by reading some of these great finance items from the past week.
