For the lucky few, this is fantasy championship weekend. For others it’s Week 16 in the NFL, which means playoff races are heating up, but it also means that the season will soon be over and that brings a tear to my eye.

This week David Johnson is easily the No. 1-ranked running back, but what about guys like Todd Gurley and Charcandrick West who, if you are playing for a championship this weekend, have no doubt helped you get there?
