Craig Parks & Recreation will begin its co-ed fall volleyball league, open to ages 15 and older. Games take place in two separate leagues: the competitive league plays Monday nights, with semi-competitive Tuesdays and Thursdays. All games are in the Craig Middle School gym, 915 Yampa Ave, starting Sept. 12. The deadline to register is this Friday, and the cost is $200 per team, plus $20 per player.
This week, I'm going to dive into some news from around the fantasy baseball scene and the football world. With about a month left in baseball and football gearing up, I thought it was a good time to just scope the scene in both sports and see what's going on that may be of value to fantasy players.

Once I get started on football, it's hard to go back to baseball. Maybe it's the fact that I don't want to notice that I'm still in eighth place in my only fantasy baseball league. It really just didn't come together for my team this year. Maybe it was the fact that it's a points league and I'm used to competing in head-to-head leagues. I really don't know, though. For a team that seems to have good players — Harper, Gonzalez, Verlander, etc. — it sure fell short this year.
