But this re-signing has sent ripples through the fantasy community. Every week during the regular season, snuggled atop the waiver line between the IR guys sits Alstott. Sometimes, he has 3 yards and a touchdown (6 fantasy points). Until you draft him and get paid back with just 3 yards (0 fantasy points). Last season, he followed a five fantasy point outburst against the Browns with -2 points against the Seahwaks! Drafting Alstott turns fantasy football into Texas Hold Em': you stay in with a 8 and 4, just praying that River card gives you the straight. Then one flip later, you're sitting with a jack high. Mike Alstott. He is our blessing. He is our curse.

It might seem like a rather insignificant story - Six-time Pro Bowl fullback Mike Alstott, one of the most popular and productive players in Tampa Bay history, will return to the Buccaneers for at least one more season.
