The NFL plays its annual deal in England in Week 7, and the Bears-Buccaneers tilt in Wembley Stadium sparked a conversation about the most famous soccer players in America. So who is it? Landon Donovan? Beckham?
Come on, it's Hope Solo. In fact, I would contend that Alex Morgan is just a notch below her in popularity putting Morgan at second. But Solo is in the spotlight right now performing in Dancing with the Stars and appearing in ESPN the Magazine's body issue (which has surpassed the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue for prudish handwringing).
Unfortunately, being the most famous soccer player in America means that you are below hotel heiresses, reality TV stars and people who got famous for being in the stands of a college football game in terms of Q rating. But forgive me for putting an emphasis on somebody who has actually accomplished something in her life, like Solo.
With that all of the way, I am offering you my likes and dislikes for the coming fantasy week and beyond. That's right, Facebook won't give you a dislike button, but I certainly will. Bolded names are my likes, and dislikes.
Too many disclaimers? You can always check the rankings, but that is a terrible way to waste the final hours of your work week.
And without further ado ...
For the record, you can submit your fantasy questions to NFL.com Fantasy Live, Michael Fabiano or me on Twitter. But realize, NFL.com Fantasy has 28,000 followers, Fabiano has 35,000, me, I only have 2,500. So your odds are better that I will answer a question, just based on the numbers. So hit me up on both via Twitter or via Facebook. Be sure to catch the latest on the Dave Dameshek Football Program.
