It's official. The halfway point of the season has arrived and can we just pull over for a second and take a breather? I mean, Calvin Johnson is miles behind us and is lost in some overrated city named Detroit.

Check Heath Miller on the list of consistent gentlemen that were severely underrated when the season commenced.Fantasy football truly is no easier than putting together a perfect bracket during March.
