Ode to the Yoder.

PBM and myself have a little bit of an inside joke that I’ll let you all in on. It involves former Tampa Bay Buccaneer and Washington Redskin, Todd Yoder.

The Yodes finds Paydirt….he would do this 8 times in his 9 year career.

It’s not really a joke, I don’t know what to call it, but the gist is that all shitty white tight ends are Yoders. That’s it. Pretty fucking cool right?

You see in deeper fantasy leagues (12-14 teams) late in the season you find yourself searching the waiver wire scrap heap looking for a TE who might catch a TD. For many years your would hit that filter and there he was: Todd Yoder.

You knew you were in bad shape if you were even considering Yoder.

Pretty weak numbers. Still the one time I really needed to pick him up I went with the other guy, Yoder scored, my guy didn’t get targeted. I should’ve gone Yodering.

Oh shit he’s projected to get 5 points? It was always Yoder and some other guy, I usually went with the other guy. It never felt good to pick up Yoder. Well thanks to the NFL becoming more passing oriented, there are now more Yoders than ever before.


Luke Wilson you’re a Yoder with an actor’s name:

Luke learned how to use the force from the original Yoder.


AJ Derby? I don’t even know who you are. Guess what? You’re a Yoder.

Yoders like to fly under the radar.


Even the Bears drafted a Yoder, Adam Shaheen:

I’ve never seen a more Yoder face. Yoder-leh-he-hoo!!

Feel free to start calling crappy white fantasy tight ends “Yoders” it rolls right off the tongue.
