Another great set of games on the schedule this week, but it might be time to throw in the towel if you are 0-2, depending on how your team is looking with the string of recent injuries and off-the-field issues. However, there are several players who are worthy to start this week even if they aren’t owned in many leagues.

Start ‘Em

Andrew Luck (vs. Jacksonville): The Jaguars have had trouble against the pass since the start of the season, but Luck hasn’t really shown much over the first two weeks. Expect the Colts to score at a high rate with big plays from Luck to multiple receivers in order to get a win closer to .500. Continue reading Fantasy Football Start ‘Em, Sit ‘Em: Week 3 »

Get your free money!

If the title of this article makes no sense to you, please review my earlier post, weekly fantasy strategy. My goal over the remaining 15 weeks of the NFL schedule is to provide insight to the best deals and values of weekly fantasy players.

Typically you are allotted $50,000 in fake money to draft your weekly team. Divided among the typical 9 roster slots thats means on average you can spend $5,555 per player. However, if you use my advice and find some cheaper, or high upside options, then you will have more excess money to spend on top tier players.

Sit on your couch! Play weekly fantasy football! And win boatloads of cash!”

The message of that commercial sure sounded nice, when I was sitting on my couch, tweaking a fantasy football lineup, and hoping to miraculously obtain a boatload of cash. In fact, I was so intrigued, I gave it a shot. And I must say, weekly redraft leagues are a lot of fun!

In my humble opinion, the draft is the most exciting part of the fantasy football season, and now instead of once a year, you can do it seventeen times a year.

Andrew Luck Hopes For Big Week 2 Performance

September 13, 2014 at 10:01pm in Fantasy
James McNeil writes

One of the most talked about week 1 contests in the NFL was Denver versus Indianapolis. It was a matchup between the best fantasy football quarterback in the game in Peyton Manning versus a strong up-and-coming quarterback who could take that title down the road in Andrew Luck. Not only that, but things always get interesting when Manning goes up against his former team. The elder statesman at quarterback cruised to a victory against Indianapolis, and that means the team’s back is up against the wall in week 2. Fortunately, the Philadelphia pass defense is exactly what could get Luck going in 2014.

Philadelphia made the playoffs last year, but there are some legitimate concerns surrounding the team at this point in time. Yes, they won in week 1 against the Jacksonville Jaguars. However, they had to really rally in the 2nd half to do so. An undrafted rookie for Jacksonville, not to mention a below-average quarterback, lit up the pass defense. That means Luck has a chance to put up some pretty nice numbers in fantasy football. Continue reading Andrew Luck Hopes For Big Week 2 Performance »

With Week 1 in the books, some players stepped up and some players laid a complete goose egg for your fantasy team. Sure, it’s not time to panic, but there is some reason for alarm after starting 0-1. Below are some choices to start or sit based on matchups.

Start ‘Em

Jake Locker (vs. Dallas): The Cowboys allowed over 17 points to Colin Kaepernick in Week 1 and looked very porous. Sure, if you have a stud quarterback make sure to start them, but Locker makes a great sleeper pick against a terrible defense. Continue reading Fantasy Football Start ‘Em, Sit ‘Em: Week 2 »

Football is finally back as Thursday is the opening night of the 2014-15 NFL season. There are no players in this game who are on this list, so no need to worry about your Thursday players. Well, unless you really don’t have a choice.

Start ‘Em

Nick Foles (vs. Jacksonville): That’s right. Foles is now the full-time starter for the City of Brotherly Love with Michael Vick out of the picture. In Week 1, he gets a matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars who gave up an average of 19 fantasy points to quarterbacks in 2013. If Foles can get the ball down the field early and often, then this game will be a laugher. Continue reading Fantasy Football Start ‘Em, Sit ‘Em: Week 1 »

Tom Brady throwing

Fantasy football is fickle. It is a game of chance where the best laid plans can regularly crumble before your tear-filled eyes. In the most basic sense, it is a game of risk analysis. Drafting your team is easily the most important part. Which players are most likely to score the most points? Which players have the greatest chance for injury or regression?

But, really, it’s a game of chance. Nevertheless, due to hype, rumors, or general Internet frenzy–come draft day, there are always NFL players who are wildly undervalued while others are wildly overvalued.
