Dylan Burd: What’s your best fantasy football story from all the years you’ve been playing?
Mitchell Renz: The first time I won my family fantasy football league in 2015 (started in 2005). I lived in Germany at the time and the Giants were playing the Vikings on Sunday night football. I stayed up to 6 am to make sure I won the title. I didn’t sleep for 48 straight hours because I was so excited. The year before I lost in the championship game and it crushed me.
