Beller and KC are coming off their best Friday of the season, a 4-1-1 showing in Week 7 that built on a 3-1 Week 6. So how do they keep it rolling? By trusting the Lions and Jaguars, naturally.

By now, you know just how brutal Week 7 is for byes. It's not just that there are six teams on bye. It's the quality of the offenses, and the depth of their fantasy options, that are taking a seat. The Cowboys, Chargers, Bills, Vikings, Jaguars and Steelers are on bye this week. Those teams contribute three no-doubt starters at quarterback (to say nothing of Trevor Lawrence and Kirk Cousins), five at running back, all of whom regularly sit in the top 10, and 11 at receiver, at least eight of whom are easily top 20 at their position. In other words, starting lineups across the fantasy football universe are going to look a bit wonky this week.

Because many of the web 3.0 advantages are hard to adopt as a large web 2.0 company, as a Founder you have to focus on the big ideas: ownership, collaboration, and community.
