No More Fantasy Writing for SI’s Jay Clemons

Thursday, October 14th, 2010

It looks like anyone who has gotten used to reading Jay Clemons’ fantasy stuff every week at SI.com will have to get used to someone else.

An altered role for Clemons, an SI.com producer, will have him no longer writing the “Clicks” and “Revelations” columns that won him fantasy football writer of the year honors from the Fantasy Sports Writers Association in January 2009 — following his first year on the beat.

“I’m very disappointed that I’ve written my last Revelations column,” Clemons told FSB.com. “If I had known Week 5 would be the Clicks finale, I would’ve found a way to dedicate more time to my favorite man-crushes, Jamaal Charles and Matthew Stafford (even though Stafford hasn’t played since Week 1).

“At the very least, maybe I should’ve made a public plea to the NFL, begging the league to stop scheduling any more Bears-Panthers games.”

(Consider your pleas made, Jay.)

Of course, the gig won’t exactly be turned over to an unknown. Will Carroll, one of the sports world’s foremost authorities on injuries and a veteran of many content outlets, will take over after previously filling in for Clemons on Revelations in Week 4.

Anyone who would still prefer to get fantasy advice straight from Clemons will have to go bug him on Twitter.
