2014 NFL Betting Tips: Week 5

Well my so called “Lock” of last week could not have been any further from the truth, as The New England Patriots were thoroughly embarrassed by the Kansas City Chiefs 41-14 on Monday Night Football. I picked the Pats to win 30-21 on Monday, and my record is 6-7 overall. I am confident in bouncing […]

Betting on Monday Night Football? In New England we trust

I was out of commission this past Sunday, but I saved my lone and best bet of the week for last. Tonight, the New England Patriots will be traveling to play at a hostile environment against the Kansas City Chiefs, and I believe the Pats at -3 are a steal. I believe this line should […]

Fantasy Fast Forward: NFL Week 5

“Everything seems to have a way of evening out for me.” About 15 years ago now on “Seinfeld,” there was an episode when Jerry had everything evening out for him. He lost a comedy gig, then five minutes later he got another one instead. Elaine threw 20 bucks out the window from Jerry’s wallet, only […]

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 West Fantasy Preview

Today I bring you the eighth and final installment of our divisional fantasy previews, finishing up with the wild NFC West. For the last few seasons, it’s been the Arizona Cardinals who have had a strangle hold on the top spot in this division, two years ago advancing to represent the NFC in the Super […]

Week 16 Sleepers

Every Wednesday, I will talk about potential fantasy football sleepers for each matchup taking place. I will go game-by-game and pick out one or two players who can most likely be found in your league’s free agent pool and explain why they can be of use to you that week. Here we are, it is […]

Week 14 Sleepers

Every Wednesday, I will talk about potential fantasy football sleepers for each matchup taking place. I will go game-by-game and pick out one or two players who can most likely be found in your league’s free agent pool and explain why they can be of use to you that week. Week 14 is the start […]

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 […]

High Five/Low Five – Week 13

The calendar has finally turned to its last page of the year, December. In most fantasy leagues, you have reached either the last week or the second to last week of your regular season. No time to waste, you NEED a win this week. So let’s get right to it. First off, we’ll look at […]

Week 12 Sleepers

We’re getting down to the nitty gritty in the final weeks of the fantasy regular season. I myself have only three weeks left before the playoffs start and I am searching desperately for whatever edge I can get. In honor of this important time of the season, I am going to shake things up a […]

High Five/Low Five: Week 8

Happy Halloween, fantasy football fans! So I have always considered Halloween as the unofficial halfway point of the fantasy football season. By now, you know if your team is a contender or pretender. You know if your roster is haunted or not. You know if they have had a spell cast against them. You know […]

Fantasy Football Report: Week 7

Me and SoB’s Chris had quite a fantasy football weekend. The two of us ended up squaring off against each other in two different leagues, including the SoB football league. We even had a mutual player in Dallas WR Miles Austin. You would think that it would be hard for either of us to root […]

Patriots Cut Roster; O’Connell Traded to Jets

Obviously the big news of the day involved Richard Seymour, but the Patriots have also made some other transactions to cut the roster down to 53 before the season begins. The Patriots made 10 cuts to the roster to get down to 53 and the notable players sent packing are OL Ryan O’Callaghan, OL Wesley […]

2009 Training Camp Preview: Tight Ends

We move along in our training camp previews to an always revolving position in Foxboro, the tight ends. From Ben Coates to Daniel Graham to Ben Watson, the Patriots have always had many options at the TE position, even if they’ve never had a superstar like Tony Gonzalez or Antonio Gates. This year’s crop looks […]

Brady is Back, Wide Receivers Rejoice!

With Tom Brady’s return to the Patriots, there are high expectations coming from Foxboro, Mass. The last time Brady saw the field for a full season, he put together arguably the greatest statistical season by any quarterback to play the game. Now before we go any further, let’s look at what the Patriots accomplished in […]
