Stocks Versus Stats: Netflix or Green Bay Packers…

Curious about how stocks and fantasy football interact? Well, let's compare stocks to the stats of football players. In case you missed it, Jim Cramer has launched BullMarketFantasy.com, a website dedicated to Fantasy Football. He and Fantasy Football expert Bill Enright host a show every Tuesday and Thursday to bring Fantasy Football managers all of the advice and knowledge that they need to know to prep their teams. But, of course, Cramer can't avoid the stock market. In fact, stocks and fantasy football have quite a bit in common. During Thursday's live show, Cramer, Enright and TheStreet's Katherine Ross unveiled a new segment -- stock versus stat. The first stock versus stat comparison was the stock of Netflix to Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. So why is Cramer not a fan of Netflix? "The reason why I'm down on it is because they weren't able to estimate themselves how many signups they're going to have. And to me that's like, I want to have at least the guy who says, we know...they are who they said they are," Cramer explained.
