Fantasy Supercross 2020 Week One: Anaheim 1

It’s that time of year again for Fantasy Supercross presented this year by my friends at Dune Therapy! After taking last year off from writing to heal my body and mind, I’m back with a renewed focus! Although I didn’t cover Fantasy Supercross from a writing standpoint, I still won the league I’m in. I know you all missed me!

Once again, I’ll be running/playing in a league following the RMFantasySX format. If you’d like to join, click the link, sign up, search for the group “FakePigskin” and join! It’s free to play and there’s weekly and season-long prizes to win!
