Well, we're truly in it now.
With Week 12 of the 2019 fantasy football season about to get underway, the playoffs will be here before you know it. And depending on how the first 11 weeks went, getting there may hinge on peeling off a winning streak.
Circumstances might not make that feat any easier. In just the last week, we saw prominent fantasy contributors such as Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster and Indianapolis Colts running back Marlon Mack join the long list of the NFL's walking wounded.
Never mind the late bye week that is sidelining guys like Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes and Los Angeles Chargers running back Melvin Gordon III.
