Fantasy Football Nerd's charity league draft recap #FFCharity

Fowler recaps Fantasy Football Nerd's charity league draft.

No matter how cool you think you are, within every fantasy football owner exists a little nerd.  Thank the good Lord our inner-nerdness is embraced by society or wedgies, swirlies, locker door slams and garbage can dunks of yesteryear would haunt us.

One of the biggest nerds of them all is Joe Dyken.  For the past four seasons, Joe, a.k.a. Fantasy Football Nerd, has hosted an “experts” league for charity.  Two quotes rest atop the leagues homepage on his site:

"Not only must we be good,
but we must be good for something."
Henry David Thoreau

"We make a living by what we get,
but we make a life by what we give."
Winston Churchill

Each expert in the league plays for a charity and out of the kindness of his heart, Fantasy Football Nerd makes a $500 donation to the charity of the winner's choice.  For a list of league members and the charities they are playing for, visit FantasyFootballNerd.com.
