What A Week It Was: Patriots Sign Lloyd, Manning Joins Broncos

Well we knew all thought it was going to be a big week and it certainly did not disappoint. Usually, the first week of the NCAA tournament dominates the national headlines because of the thousands of bracket and office pools across the country. This week was different. Beyond the spectacle that is “March Madness” was […]

Patriots Sign WR Brandon Lloyd

Free agent WR Brandon Lloyd has been connected to joining the Patriots since the end of the regular season. Now all the talk has been confirmed as New England inked the veteran receiver to a three-year deal worth $12 million. Lloyd has bounced around the NFL for the better part of last decade playing for […]

Patriots 2012 Off-Season Priorities: Wide Receivers

In an off-season that perhaps is even more exciting than last year’s lockout-shortened free agency period, the Patriots have plenty of needs.  None are bigger, however, than wide receiver and defensive end.

Fantasy Fast Forward: NFL Week 4

A hot pickup in past weeks, Peyton Hillis, had a huge day for Cleveland this past Sunday with Jerome Harrison sidelined.  Hillis is currently available in about 25 percent of league, and is an obvious person to […]

Week 3 Pickups

The early weeks of the football season is an important time for fantasy team owners. Often players that are barely on the mind of fantasy owners during the draft end up carrying a team into the playoffs. Last year, Sidney Rice was one of the more productive receivers in the game, but largely went undrafted […]
