So last week we came to the conclusion that lucky pennies are only good for one round of football picks. After last week our lucky penny went the way of the Blue Team and officially retired from participating in FFL's Fantasy Football Fridays.

Thankfully our fantasy football experts, The Specialists, stepped-up to the plate once again and knocked it out of the park.

Let's take a moment to bask in their football superiority. Go ahead, we'll wait.


That was a nice moment.

And also, an eerily similar moment.

It's like deja vu all over again.

Last week we had an explanation of the "rookie edition" title. You may have thought that we would be looking solely at NFL rookies last week, and if that was the case, you were only half right. The real reason for the title was the introduction of the newest member of the Funds For Learning team, Candy Miller.

So why the deja vu theme?

This week we had another rookie join the team - Christina Keifer.

Christina is now the newest Compliance Associate at Funds For Learning and she will be joining our other experts (both E-rate and Fantasy Football) for the remainder of the season. Welcome to the team Christina.

Without further ado, let's just go straight to the deja vu / rookie picks for week 11.

Start Andrew Luck - The consensuses is that he is "lucky".

Sit Trent Richardson - Apparently brown is appropriate as a color, but not as a name for a football team.

Sit RG3 - Just a hunch.

Sit Doug Martin - Plain name, plain game.

Start Ryan Tannehill - He tries really hard.


Marquee Match-Ups

Patriots over Colts

Ravens over Steelers

Bears over 49ers


If this is your first experience with Funds For Learning's Fantasy Football Friday's you might be a bit confused, and rightfully so - our expertise is in E-rate (we're pretty good at alliteration too), but not Fantasy Football.
