Is it time to trust Cam newton again?

Two weeks off the table and the bye weeks are nearly upon us, but Week 3 is the final full week until later in the season. So, make sure to get all your superstars in there and make sure to bench players who have bad matchups before you have to play your bench players due to bye-week replacements. Here are some of my recommendations:

Start ‘Em

Cam Newton (vs. New Orleans): The Saints’ defense have the third-worst passer rating against QBs and Newton put up a huge game in Week 14 last year with three passing touchdowns and a rushing score. If you are planning to play Newton based on matchups, then this is one of those times to put him in your lineup. Continue reading Fantasy Football Start ‘Em, Sit ‘Em: Week 3 »

Could Tony Romo be in for a rough game on Sunday?

Week 1 is in the books and from running backs to wide receivers injuries are starting to accumulate. With some players still making progress this season, here are some starts/sits for Week 2 of the NFL season:

Start ‘Em

Sam Bradford (vs. Dallas): The Cowboys’ secondary is not all it is cracked up to be and Bradford showed flashes against a solid Falcons’ defense in the second half. Expect at least two or three touchdown passes for the former St. Louis Ram this week. Continue reading Fantasy Football Start ‘Em, Sit ‘Em: Week 2 2015 »

With Week 1 finally upon us, is Melvin Gordon ready to shine or will he fall under the pressure of playing in the NFL?

Fantasy football is finally back and that means it is time for start/sit articles from everywhere. Sure, the best thing to do is to just believe in your gut, but here are some players who could help/hurt you in Week 1 of this fantasy football season.

Start ‘Em

Carson Palmer (vs. New Orleans): The Saints’ defense is a mess as two young corners are going to be the starters and Jairus Byrd will be out Week 1, so Palmer should be able to have some huge throws and be a QB that could be a top-5 guy at his position.  Continue reading Fantasy Football Start ‘Em, Sit ‘Em: Week 1 2015 »

The Dramatic Rise of Daily Fantasy Sports

August 27, 2015 at 6:54pm in Fantasy

You likely can’t go a day without hearing someone talk about Draft Kings, or hearing a radio advertisement for FanDuel. Its popularity is hard to ignore. The allure of possibly winning $1 million legally and by spending not so much is just too hard to pass up for some.

Having a rough draft dooms many seasonal and dynasty fantasy owners, but that’s no problem for the daily games. If you have a bad draft, you lose on the first day. But there’s always a tomorrow in the world of daily fantasy sports games. Continue reading The Dramatic Rise of Daily Fantasy Sports »

Fantasy Baseball Draft Review

Adam Jones (hngn.com)

It’s getting closer and closer to opening day, and if you’re like me then you’ve already got fantasy baseball on your mind. Many of you may have even done your drafts by now. You may even have some money on the line.

Personally, I’m in a 10-team dynasty league with friends that’s extremely competitive. Every guy in the league knows his stuff, and they’re all very active on the waiver wire and trading block. It’s also really interesting to see how people run their team in a dynasty league like this as opposed to a single-season league. And let me tell you- the draft is VERY different.

I wanted to show you my team and draft results and get into why I went with each pick, where the draft was going, and maybe give you some tips and insight as you approach your own fantasy seasons. First, let’s take a look at my keepers from last year. The way it works is, you get to keep up to 9 players and they take the a draft pick based on their respective rankings. So the free agent pool at draft looks very different.

Here is my team and the draft picks they slotted into: Continue reading Fantasy Baseball Draft Review »

Is Mark Sanchez the winning formula for Week 16? (Eric Hartline/USA TODAY Sports)

If your fantasy football league is in the championship or the semi-finals, then Week 16 is still most likely a must-win game as money or bragging rights are on the line. Here are some players to take advantage of and to sit on the pine in this week’s matchups:

Start ‘Em

Mark Sanchez (vs. Washington): Sanchez has not been up to snuff the last couple of weeks, but the Redskins defense has been atrocious against the pass this season. If you are dealing with injuries or just need someone with a juicy matchup — Sanchez is your guy. Continue reading Fantasy Football Start ‘Em, Sit ‘Em: Week 16 »

Should Colin Kaepernick be trusted in the fantasy playoffs? (Reuters)

Your league is in the semi-finals or first round of the playoffs, but there are still full slates of games to think about. Some matchups re worth the stash, but others make it easy to sit those players who have tough matchups. Here are some players you should start or sit in Week 15:

Start ‘Em

Eli Manning (vs. Washington): Manning had himself a day Week 4 against the Washington Redskins and that was on the road! The veteran has played consistently well at home and is due for a big game after several letdown performances in recent weeks. Continue reading Fantasy Football Start ‘Em, Sit ‘Em: Week 15 »
