At FOXSports.com, Peter Schrager tries to explain the national phenomenon that is fantasy football. "Like any vice, fantasy football preparation starts off as a recreational activity, only to ultimately lead to dangerous avenues and dark places. What begins as just some curious downtime prowling the Internet for cheat sheets and off-season player movement evolves into multiple hours lost at work on the company's dime.

Keeping up with it all is practically a full-time job in itself." Read the rest of Schrager Right Here ...

At ChicagoBears.com, Larry Mayer interviews Bears offensive line coach Harry Hiestand about the prospects of his group in 2007.
