Redraft King: Week 14 Fantasy Football Advice

I’ll often point out or lampoon my own advice when it is not up to the Redraft King’s standard or mediocrity. However, in week 13, I struck gold. My only regret was that in the few daily fantasy sports line ups I submitted, I had Tre Mason and DeAndre Hopkins on different teams (but still […]

Examining the Sandoval and Ramirez Signings

Whether you support the Red Sox recent signings of Pablo Sandoval and Hanley Ramirez, or not, they are on the team now. (I was originally against the Pablo Sandoval signing rumors.) So what will these two huge signings bring to the Red Sox over the next several seasons? Sandoval is 28 and Ramirez is 30 […]

Redraft King: Week 13 Advice

As this is the second Redraft King column of the week, I’ll spare you my typical attempt of a quasi-clever preamble and jump right into the fray. Thanksgiving Day Recap: Jay Cutler wasn’t awful with 280 passing yards and two scores and two picks. Mark Sanchez, to commemorate the two-year anniversary of the “butt fumble” (I swear […]

Redraft King: Week 13 Fantasy Football Advice

Do you know what happens in two days? I bet you do. The nation will set aside any and all disputes (well, maybe not) and we will collectively plunge into a turkey/gravy/stuffing/potato induced coma. Unhealthy mountains of turkey will sustain some through the rigors of Black Friday, and for others Thursday will just end in a good […]

Redraft King: Week 12 Fantasy Football Advice

Week 11 was a bad week for fantasy football running backs.  Unless, of course, you were one of the few people who started Jonas Gray. Other than Gray, only three running backs scored more than 20 points in PPR format on Sunday: Jamaal Charles, Eddie Lacy, and Matt Forte. Those three stud running backs have been consistent all […]

Why the Red Sox DON’T Want Pablo Sandoval

Many Red Sox fans have been dreaming of free agent third basemen, Pablo Sandoval since August. Those dreams only intensified after he put together an extraordinary post-season. There have also been rumors circulating that the Red Sox are “all in” on the powerful switch hitter.  And various reports have indicated that Sandoval is in Boston to meet with Red Sox […]

Redraft King: Week 11 2014 Advice

Week 10 was a high scoring affair. Most fantasy stars had predictably reliable performances. Several of these players appeared in my week 10 advice. But there were a few bad calls too. Week 10 Recap: Russell Wilson had a nice game, mostly due to his legs. Derek Carr had a disappointing 13.7 points, and while he […]

Redraft King: Week 10 2014 Advice

Why didn’t I pick Big Ben to repeat his six touchdown performance? How did I not see that coming? Oh right, no one saw that coming. However, I highlighted several other players who went off in week 9. I cashed in by using several of these players, hopefully you did too. Week 9 Recap: I […]

Medford’s FanDuel Champion: Doug Clough

Some people have all the luck. One such person is fifty-three-year-old ironworker, Doug Clough. Doug is a native of Deerfield, Massachusetts, but now resides in Medford. He’s a lifelong Patriots fan. Earlier this NFL season, Doug heard a FanDuel advertisement on the radio and thought, “I’ll give this a try.” And he won. The first […]

Boston’s FanDuel Champion: Frank Borawski

Twenty-seven year old BU grad, Frank Borawski, is not only a great fantasy football player, but also the Assistant Director of Finance at a nearby bank. His analytical business mind translates very well to the statistical minutia that is fantasy football. But Frank knows, like every fantasy football player knows, “Luck has a lot to do with it.” […]

Redraft King: Week 9 2014 Advice

I’ll make this quick. It was one of those weeks for me last week. So I’m a bit frosty toward fantasy football right now. Sometimes there is nothing you can do. Sometimes, for example, you lose in all five of your fantasy football leagues. To top it off, my week 8 picks were very hit […]

Redraft King: Week 8 2014 Advice

Greetings millionaires! The Redraft King hopes that you consider donating a portion of your winnings from week 7 to a charity of your choice. Because if you followed my advice last week you probably vanquished all of your fantasy enemies and are now doing the backstroke through mountains of gold coins. So it is with […]

Redraft King: Week 7 2014 Advice

I was pretty happy with the results of my week 6 predictions. Hopefully you followed along and reached the weekly redraft promised land. Without further ado: Week 6 Recap: Jay Cutler scored 25 points and continued his high levels of production and consistency. With a juicy 113 passer rating Brian Hoyer led his team to […]

Redraft King: Week 6 2014 Advice

Unfortunately for this column I have set the precedent of reviewing my advice from the prior week. I wish I hadn’t. But I did. Here it goes. Week 5 Recap: Why didn’t I promote Austin Davis, Branden Oliver, Kendall Wright or Tim Wright! My week 5 advice didn’t happen to highlight those relatively obscure players who lit […]

Redraft King: Week 5 2014 Advice

Before jumping into week 5, let’s see how I did week 4. I will be the first to say, my predictions saw marked improvement over week 3. Week 4 Recap: Turns out Jacksonville’s defense is as bad as expected. Anyone who played Phillip Rivers enjoyed his 377 passing yards and 3 TDs.
