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 […]

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 […]

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 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 […]

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 […]

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, […]

Fantasy Football Report: Week 15

With leagues already in playoff mode, it is important to make sure that you pay attention to who is playing. By that I mean,  make sure your current starters will actually be starting. Some teams will rest their players in order to gear them up for the playoffs and that can hurt you. So, for […]

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 13

With the end of Week 13, the fantasy football playoffs have officially begun (SoB league starts in Week 15). Hopefully you were lucky enough to make it. I unfortunately missed the playoffs in one league. Interestingly enough, if I had won just one more matchup, I would have made it to the 8th and final spot. […]

Fantasy Football Report: Week 12

In my other football league, I have been officially eliminated from the playoffs. I blame this on a few factors but most of all my draft. The biggest mistake I made was overvaluing wide receivers. Instead of grabbing a good QB or my second RB, I stretched for Braylon Edwards. Lesson learned. Brady Quinn Out […]

Fantasy Football Report: Week 8

I am coming to you from a barely functioning keyboard that has a missing “A” key and every key on the left side stick because some Dr. Pepper got in there and everything is covered in a delicious dried up syrup. Add this to my hard drive crashing a few weeks ago and we can […]

Fantasy Football Report: Week 5

Tom Brady, Brain Westbrook, Peyton Manning, Carson Palmer, Steven Jackson, and Randy Moss. What do they all have in common? They all went in the first round in the SoB Fantasy Football League. Guess what? They have performed far below expectations. Seriously, the first round is supposed to set the pace for your whole draft. […]

TGIF: SoB Football League Draft

Last Saturday, the Sports of Boston Football League had its draft. In addition to the writers of Sports of Boston, we also had our friends from Wicked Pissa Dude Radio and The Blue Workhorse. We also had loyal readers join us for the fun. It is a 12-team league with positions set up as such: […]

TGIF: The Thrill of Victory and The Agony of Defeat

“Few players recall big pots they have won, strange as it seems, but every player can remember with remarkable accuracy the outstanding tough beats of his career.” – Jack King, “Confessions of a Winning Poker Player” We’ve all been there… Everyone who steps into the realm of fantasy sports brings with them determination and a […]
