You can probably tell from the podcast that NFL football is not the sport I follow. Go ahead and tease me, I get last names wrong too. So when I say I don’t know anything about Darren Fells, I don’t have a clue.
Well, that changed a couple of weeks ago.
On Finding Tight Ends
Finding a good tight end for your team is like spotting a bald eagle in your backyard. Well, probably not a good example because I just took a picture of one from our kitchen recently.
Well, you get the idea. But I did happen to notice this TE from the Houston Texans named Darren Fells. Who is this guy? Why is he available when he’s on a good team? Is he first on the TE depth chart?
I learned that he’s had a few decent games, good enough to make him a Top 10 TE. So, I grabbed him. Not only that, he scored 7.1 points thanks to a touchdown the week I started him. Take that Eric Ebron.

The Darren Fells Story
But there’s more to the story. Otherwise, I wouldn’t be wasting precious space on this insanely popular fantasy football blog.
Here’s what I’ve since learned about this guy:
- He was undrafted.
- His first love is basketball.
- He played basketball in college.
- He played overseas for five years in the sport.
- He hates failure.
- There were 9 years between his high school football days and the NFL playing field.
- He’s humble.
Whether he stays on my team or not, I’ll always be rooting for Darren Fells. He’s a class act all the way.
