Strong Running Game Leads Patriots Past Vikings; Favre Injured in Fourth

BenJarvus Green-Ellis leaped over the back of blocking guard Dan Connolly, tumbling head over heels. When he came down, the Patriots had a two-score lead with less than two minutes left in the game. Green-Ellis ran for 112 yards and two touchdowns- the first multiple-touchdown game of his career- Sunday, and the New England Patriots […]

Fantasy Fast Forward: NFL Week 1

We all love summertime. The mercury in the thermometer peaks, and so does the number of scantily clad women at the beach. But personally, I’m very happy to see the summer come to a close. Not because I want to see the lovely beach bunnies layer up for colder weather ahead, but because with the […]

NFC North Fantasy Preview

Our fourth divisional fantasy preview takes us to the NFC North, a division that features heated rivalries and is filled with top notch fantasy talent. Last season, the Vikings earned the top spot in this foursome, coming ever-so-close to a Super Bowl appearance, instead losing in overtime of the NFC title game at the hands […]

The RB Free Agent Market

The 2010 off-season features a long list of free agent running backs. Some familiar faces including LaDanian Tomlinson, Thomas Jones, and Brian Westbrook will all be looking for new homes this summer. Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots are notorious for being active in free agency over the past few years, and I expect […]

NFC CHAMPIONSHIP PREVIEW: A TALE OF TWO QB’S

With all the talk about the Jets-Colts games focusing on history, the NFC Championship is all about firsts. For all the times the Superdome has hosted a Super Bowl, a record seven and counting, this will be the first Conference Championship game. It will also be the first time Brett Favre will play in the […]

TGIF: Fantasy Football Draft, 2010

With the conclusion of the 2009 season, it is time to start looking ahead to the future. Although it may be too early to accurately project what the first round of the draft will be next season, it is still fun to think about. I have gotten into the habit of making my prediction for […]

Fantasy Football Report: Week 13

In a lot of leagues, the playoffs have begun. This is because most leagues don’t play during week 17. I don’t see why. In the SoB league, we play all the way through to the end. This means that we are in our final week of our regular season. I think playing during week 17 […]

TGIF: What Has Become of Yahoo! Fantasy Football’s First Round?

Now, I am focusing on just one provider of fantasy football, so the rankings may differ from other leagues. Every season, for people who are not that familiar with the game of fantasy football, we tend to lean heavily on the rankings. Even if you are a seasoned veteran, you can’t help but be influenced […]

Fantasy Football Report: Week 1

Oh it feels so good to be back. The start of the NFL season also means the start of the “Fantasy Football Report”. Once again we will be bringing you a recap of some of the best players from the previous week as well as those who did not live up to expectations. Are you […]

TGIF: Brett Favre Fantasy Value

The Brett Favre media circus rolled into Minnesota in full force and left a devastating wave of damage. In the end, Favre signed a two-year deal with the Vikings and will be their starting QB for the 2009 season. My condolences go out to Tavaris Jackson and Sage Rosenfels who will never see the field […]

TGIF: Fun With Fantasy Football’s First Round

Let’s be honest for a moment. Trying to prep for a fantasy football draft is borderline useless. It is without question the most unpredictable of all the fantasy games (well, the major ones anyway…who cares about fantasy NASCAR?). Thanks to its small number of games and high risk of injury, attempting to project player stats […]

Fantasy Football Focus: The Starting 11 – Top Dawgs

It’s been said that first impressions go a long way. You get introduced to someone for the first time and you accidentally spit on them when greeting them, they are going to remember that forever. Go on a job interview with a glob of hair gel hanging from your ear, a la Ben Stiller in […]

TGIF: Fantasy Football Draft, 2009

The regular season has only been over for a few days but, that doesn’t mean we can’t start thinking about next season. I pulled a similar stunt like this when I made a first round projection for the 2009 baseball season. So naturally, I am back again to do the same thing only this time, […]

TGIF: The Results of Football’s First Round

Months and months ago, the SoB football league had its draft. Football is the sport with the least amount of depth at each position so in order to get things off on the right foot, you need to have a solid foundation. That foundation is in Round 1. If your first round pick fails then […]

Fantasy Football Report: Week 10

Some were impressed with Brady Quinn’s first career NFL start last Thursday against Denver. After all, he did throw for 238 yds and 2 TD. He made no mistakes and looked like he has been a pro for years. Yeah but, he was facing the Broncos. They allow 389 total yds per game which is good for 29th in […]
