Williams And Harris Hoping for Fantasy Wins, Too

    If you're one of the millions of people who play fantasy football, you were likely just as tuned into the statistics from Sunday's games as the score. If you have Tom Brady, Cam Newton or Wes Welker, you're smiling. Steven Jackson or Peyton Manning? Not so much.
