Any other comic book nerds who are also fantasy sports geeks? I wanna hear from you!

I can think of a few...none of Witch invokes sports.

I could never get into fantasy sports. I never wanted to watch a game and care more about whether or not Jason Witten catches a TD then whether or not my team is winning.

Same here. I'm actually very much into sports (NFL) statistics, so it confounds people initially when they find out I hate fantasy football. But the stats they use are very basic/context-free (so I get sick of people getting convinced certain players are "the best" because they produce a lot of fantasy points)

One of the reasons I hate it is because defense, the most important part of football, means nothing.

Yea, or when they have it, it's total tackles, total sacks, or total interceptions....because those really are a quality measure of defensive ability.
