SoB Fantasy Football Top 50 Big Board: Week 13

Adrian Peterson moves back to the top five this week surfacing at No. 3.  Rob Gronkowski, Antonio Brown, Eddie Lacy and Josh Gordon all ride waves of recent consistency up the board.  Aaron Rodgers may reappear in Week 14 if he is healthy to go after the Packers mini-bye.  Six teams are in action on […]

SoB Fantasy Football Top 50 Big Board: Week 12

Calvin Johnson is the new leader on the Big Board, becoming the first non-running back to hold the top spot.  He simply cannot be stopped and he’s even more valuable in PPR leagues.  He may even go first in some 2014 fantasy drafts.  LeSean McCoy moves back in the top five as he rests up […]

SoB Fantasy Football Top 50 Big Board: Week 10

The top three hold their spots on this week’s Board while Adrian Peterson jumps Marshawn Lynch to move up to No. 4.  Patriots Rob Gronkowski, Stevan Ridley, and Tom Brady all ascend due to New England finding their rhythm against Pittsburgh.  Rookie running backs Eddie Lacy and Zac Stacy jump to 15 and 20 respectively.  […]

SoB Fantasy Football Top 50 Big Board: Week 9

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 […]

Fantasy Football Start ‘Em, Sit ‘Em: Week 7

Week 6 provided many players the right to fight for a playoff spot still, but Week 7 is likely the week that will determine your fate heading to the postseason. Here are some options to start/sit this week: Start ‘Em Eli Manning (vs. Minnesota): Sure, the New York Giants are 0-6, but the Vikings have one […]

SoB Fantasy Football Top 50 Big Board: Week 6

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 […]

Brady, Patriots Gobble Up Lions on Thanksgiving

Dave Rayner booted a 44-yard field goal, giving the Detroit Lions a 17-10 halftime lead, and images of three weeks ago when the Browns stunned the Patriots began to appear. Were the Patriots unable to beat an overachieving team on the road? Does Tom Brady have the grit and determination to pull his team through […]

Fantasy Fast Forward: NFL Week 9

This week, I’m going to attempt to put the “fast” in “Fantasy Fast Forward.” Why? Because as I’m typing this, I’m just a few short hours away from jetting off to Las Vegas, and like any other guy I know, I’m a procrastinator and haven’t packed a darn thing yet. So instead of racking up […]

Week 6 Pickups

Now that Randy Moss has played a game in a Vikings’ uniform, its pretty clear that him bring traded meant little for his owners in fantasy. However, that does not mean that the trade will not have an effect on other fantasy owners, with Deion Branch still available in most leagues. Week 6 Pickups Here […]

With Week 1 of the NFL in the books, you and your fantasy team are in one of two situations.

Situation #2: you’ve got Kevin Kolb and Ryan […]

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 […]

High Five/Low Five – Week 14

Deck the halls, hang the mistletoe, and pour me some egg nog…it’s fantasy playoff time! If your league’s playoffs don’t start this week, they’ll likely start next week, so hopefully you’re still in “fantasy football addiction mode” and not in “wait til next year” mode. Last week, I got right down to business with a […]

Fantasy Football Report: Week 3

Is it just me, or does it seem like every NFL player is made of fragile porcelain? A week hasn’t gone by yet where we haven’t seen a major injury go down. Yes, football players get injured all the time, but over the last three weeks, players are suffering injuries that are causing them to […]
