Get Ready for the NFL Draft with Tim Simons’ Fantasy Draft Day Tips!

Okay, let’s get this out of the way before anyone starts saying “football isn’t for nerds” ad nauseam. Much like Street Fighter or Call of Duty, football is, at its heart, a bloodsport, and fans tend to obsess over ever little facet, statistic, and detail of the game much like we nerds obsess about every little statistic and detail of things they love like Doctor Who or Game of Thrones. I played fantasy football for the first time this year and, let me tell you, it was basically just like playing a tactical RPG with a bunch of meaty 300-pound paladins, as opposed to waifish Final Fantasy characters.

Still, I can see that you might not believe me, which is why we’ve enlisted actor Timothy Simons of Veep fame to help you gear up for this weekend’s NFL Draft. Believe me — whether or not you’re a big fan of the sport, I think you’re definitely going to want to hear these tips. This is advice by which to live your life. And coming from the eleventh male lead in Draft Day…well, I think that speaks for itself. So, kick back, relax, crack open a cold one, and enrich your life with Timothy Simons’ killer tips!
