After hearing “no” for most of his football career, Aaron Rodgers paved his own way to becoming a Pro Bowl quarterback. He has gained respect from Packers teammates and fans by showing that not only is he a good player but he has good character as well. In “Above It All,” ESPN The Magazine writer Tim Keown looks at how far Rodgers has come, and reveals why you will want to draft him in your fantasy league this year. Also in The Mag’s NFL Fantasy Preview, on newsstands now, writer Christopher Harris lists 13 genuine revelations that will help you dominate your league, in the Fantasy Football Strategy Guide “So Crazy It’s Genius.”

Now that the 2010 FIFA World Cup is over, ESPN The Magazine’s Luke Cyphers takes a glimpse back on the past four weeks to see how World Cup South Africa fever has affected the U.S.’ view on soccer—and what it could mean for the sport in the future, in “Transition Game.” And… “Player X,” MLB, talks about what it’s like to hear your name mentioned in swirling trade rumors, most of the time without even knowing the real truth to the situation.
