WHATS UP SPECIAL ED!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?
HOLY SHIT! Pre-Season Football starts THIS WEEK!!!! ARE YOU GUYS FUCKIN PSYCHED OR WHAT?!?!?!?!
We got a lotta corner-threes to knock down today so we just got a quick pre-season jersey number update, then we'll get right to Cleo's NFC North Preview, then we're outta here!!!
LETS FUCKING GOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!
JERSEY NUMBER CHANGE UPDATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
With training camps in full swing this past week, we got our first look at the NEW JERSEY NUMBERS implemented this off-season.
Across the league this season we will see 14 WRs, 7 RBs, and 1 TE don the hallowed single digit jersey number. It's a new day!!!!
We copied that whole list below so you can update your rankings accordingly, but first we gotta give a very special shout-out to the league's best jersey number switch -
THE 2021 DYM AWARD for BEST JERSEY NUMBER OF THE YEAR goes to:
Our guy Shep went from a bottom three WR jersey number (87) to a top three overall number (3) this off-season. Shep always had too small of a frame for an 80+ jersey number, but now he's lookin GUAPO en el tres! It actually makes him look like he's in better shape somehow, he looks faster now.
This will play very nicely with our NFC East resurgence theory we introduced a few weeks ago. Golden Tate is dust. This is Shep's year.
Our old friends at CBS.com have been keeping a running list of every NFL player who changed their jersey number for the 2021 Season. It's been VERY helpful for us over here at the DYM Home Office.
We know we shouldn't like CBS but we got Stockholm Syndrome like a motherfucker for that corporation. Like, we don't watch ANY primetime tv shows on channel 2, but this time of year we really miss catching the NCIS previews during sunday football games. Also, CBS is the Official NCAA Tournament Bracket Game Platform of Special Ed. We've been playing March Madness there for about 15 years. We don't love the app (and it hasn't changed much in the last decade) but we're very accustomed to it, so we'd probably have a harder time with a new one.
Anyway, the unparalleled Pro-Football-Reference.com also has an ALL-TIME Jersey Number List now so if we wanna look up, like, who was the #1 #1 in NFL History, we got it right here at our fingertips. What a time to be alive!!!
Now, without further to do, here's the full list of fantasy players with NEW single digit jersey numbers:
