Editor's Note: A new $2,000,000 one-week fantasy football league has opened on FanDuel for Week 7. First place wins $150,000 on Sunday. Join now!
It's been a matchup almost six weeks in the making. Once Pride Of Detroit Writer Alex Reno told me that his mother beat him in their family fantasy football matchup in Week 1, I couldn't have been happier to tease the everlasting crap out of him. A writer, a knowledgable one at that, who watches more football than most of you could stomach, was given the business by the woman who changed his diapers and tucked him in at night for the past twenty-some years. This feud escalated from there. I took the chance to take shots on the PODcast, he joined the PODcast the following week and fired back, and now things have reached a head. It's come to a breaking point. And only one man will walk out of Week 7 with their head held high, and I'd like you, the POD faithful, to chime in with who you are siding with this week in our FanDuel Daily Fantasy Matchup of the Week: Mr. Alex Reno, or myself, your beloved fantasy adviser, Ryan Mathews.
What you'll find below is the exchange both Alex and myself had via email over the past few days. Completely unedited and in its entirety, this is how we arrived at the lineups we are both wagering $1 dollar on this week in a H2H matchup on FanDuel.
Mathews: It's that time, Reno. Who knows when daily fantasy sports will become a thing of the past like Surge and Bawls. Let's get to pickin'.
Reno: I'm readier than I'll ever be. I just hope you're better at daily fantasy than you are at Rocket League. My only stipulation for this heated affair is that there will be no mother consulting. Let's get it on.
Mathews: How can I trust that you won't be exchanging chores for fantasy tips from Mrs. Reno? This goes both ways: no mother consulting. Deal. Since I'm the resident FanDuel expert, I'm going to defer to you for the first pick. Reno, Alex, is on the clock.
Reno: Alright, whatever. I digress.
