Top NFL fantasy tandems
There are fewer high-risk, high-reward decisions a fantasy football owner can make than doubling down on multiple players from one team. But as a gambling sort, I'm a wholehearted believer in the practice. The risks are many, as an injury to one of the participants could kill the point-accruing ability of both (see Peyton Manning-Reggie Wayne, circa 2011), a good defensive opponent could stymie key players for an entire week and during byes, instead of replacing just one cog in your juggernaut, you're in need of two. But the joy of seeing your live scoring point total rise like the price ticker on a gas gauge when Tom Brady hits Rob Gronkowski on a 40-yard TD pass outweighs those risks. However, you have to draft correctly and be lucky at the same time. Here are my top-10 tandems to draft for the 2012 season.
