Calvin Johnson continues his ascent all the way up from No. 9 to No. 2 on this week’s Big Board.  Jamaal Charles remains atop the board and Aaron Rodgers jumps to No. 10, becoming the third quarterback in the Top 10.  I think many people, including myself, believed entering this season that 12-14 quarterbacks would […]

Breakout receivers from Week 5 Alshon Jeffery and T.Y. Hilton crack the Top 50, and Justin Blackmon is likely to join them soon in the Top 50.  Peyton Manning could easily be No. 1, but the lack of depth at RB1 keeps Adrian Peterson and Jamaal Charles atop the board even with the Vikings on […]

SoB Fantasy Football Top 50 Big Board: Week 2

Week 1 is taken in the books, but we cannot overreact to one game and  put Anquan Boldin in the top 10, however, Boldin definitely deserves his place on the board after a monster game against Green Bay.  Adrian Peterson justified his no-brainer status as the universal No. 1 pick, RGIII knocked off some rust, […]
