Don often tries to land a top quarterback-receiver/tight end tandem (for example, the Saints’ Drew Brees and Jimmy Graham) — in part, because it seems to bring him luck. “I can say that in the six consecutive years of winning at least one league I was in that year, my arsenal always consisted of a tandem,” says Don. Of course, the problem here is you’re not distributing your risk; a bad day for the duo or a bye week could be disastrous. Then again, it could make watching the game of the week a helluva lot more exciting. “It’s a thing of beauty when Brees throws two TDs to Graham and you overcome a 21-point deficit in two or three plays.”
