In 2003, a night before a Monday Night Football matchup, Brett Favre’s 58-year-old father died suddenly. Favre played the next night and threw for four touchdowns and 399 yards while completing 73.3 percent of his passes in a 41-7 blowout win.

What has this got to do with our website? Adversity.

Drew Brees signed with the Saints right after Hurricane Katrina brought New Orleans to its knees. He went on to bring the team to win Super Bowl XLIV. Adversity.

Eric Berry was diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma and started chemotherapy. On his first season back he won comeback player of the year and was chosen for the Pro-Bowl. Adversity.

When adversity happens, players overcome it. When players overcome it, they play big. Our job is to get you the quickest adversity alerts when they happen.

So you can play the right players at the right time, and win some sweet fantasy points.
