Week 6: Start ‘Em/Sit ‘Em

Breaking up is the hardest thing to do. I just pulled out that cliché because it holds true in both real life and fantasy football. Over the years, I have learned that you do not win fantasy football leagues by holding onto big names waiting for them to start producing for you. I have found […]

Would the Real Steve Smith Please Stand Up?

It’s pretty funny how much everyone overreacts to a couple weeks of football. For example, I’ve been hearing a lot of debate this week about which Steve Smith is the better play for the rest of the season. Is this a serious question? Steve Smith (NYG) has been great this year but I am here […]

High Five/Low Five – Week 4

Let’s put it to you in terms you guys can understand. I’ve been watching a lot of NESN lately. Between the end of the Sox season and the beginning of the Bruins’ year, NESN has been my best friend the last few weeks. So related to that, I’ve drawn comparisons from my weekly fantasy picks […]

Week 4: Start ‘Em/Sit ‘Em

Fantasy football is a cruel sport. I find it to be very exciting, but it usually ends with me screaming at the television set because my player didn’t get the ball four plays in a row inside the opponent’s five yard line. It’s funny because most of us think that our player should be the […]

Pats Fall to Cincy in Preseason Homecoming, 7-6

When the most exciting play of a game is the extra point, you know you’re watching a stinker. Thursday night’s preseason game between the Bengals and Patriots was just that, and it was painful to watch. New England wasn’t able to muster much on the offensive side of the ball, and was unable to cross […]

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 […]

TGIF: What I Have Learned This Football Season (So Far)

The 2008 season has been full of stories good and bad. In our short time of play (only 6 weeks), I have witnessed the trends that make this game great and at the same time not so great. Looking at the data and also going back through my fantasy drafts a couple of months ago, […]

Fantasy Football Report: Week 4

Four weeks out of seventeen. Your season is just about 25% over. If your team sucks, then accept it. If you’re team is great, then bask in the glory. Some players have reached a point where they are just not going to come through for you (I am looking at everyone on the Bengals here). […]

Fantasy Football Report: Week 1

Week 1 is in the books. The season is already 1/16 over and you don’t have time to waste if you are looking to make improvements. If you lost your matchup in Week 1, then you are probably in a panic. Hey, I lost in both my leagues and I am not worried. Just take […]

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: Surely You Can’t Be Serious

This Saturday at 2:15pm, I will be part of my first fantasy football draft of 2008. I am hoping to rebound from my 10th place finish from last season and have been conducting very extensive research to assure I can achieve maximum potential on my draft day. The football season is won or lost in […]

MNF: Patriots at Bengals

The Patriots (3-0) look for a big road win tonight as they take on the Cincinnati Bengals (1-2) shortly after 8:30 pm tonight on Monday Night Football. The Pats have looked unstoppable on offense this season, scoring 38 points in each of the first three games (coincidentally the Pats scored 38 points against the Bengals […]
