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 […]

Fantasy Fast Forward: NFL Week 2

With Week 1 of the NFL in the books, you and your fantasy team are in one of two situations. Situation #1: you won your first week’s match-up and you’ve got visions of fantasy football glory running through your head, all the way to your league’s championship. Situation #2: you’ve got Kevin Kolb and Ryan […]

AFC North Fantasy Preview

Into the second week of August we go, where NFL teams will all finally see action this coming weekend to open their preseason slate of meaningless games. We got our first taste of football season with Sunday night’s Hall of Fame game, which featured the Dallas Cowboys topping the AFC North’s defending divisional champs, the […]

TGIF: Fantasy Football Draft, 2010

With the conclusion of the 2009 season, it is time to start looking ahead to the future. Although it may be too early to accurately project what the first round of the draft will be next season, it is still fun to think about. I have gotten into the habit of making my prediction for […]

High Five/Low Five: Week 10

Dear National Football League, Before I begin, I would like to thank you for the many years of entertainment you have given me and the millions of other football fans in the country. Your league has surpassed the rest and is truly the new “national pastime.” For five months every fall and winter, you have […]

Week 10: Start ‘Em/Sit ‘Em

Have you watched that new show on ABC called Flash Forward? For those who haven’t here’s a quick summary. The whole world blacked out for 137 seconds, during which, everyone saw a vision that took place six months in the future. I’m going to stop right there because that’s all I need for this introduction. […]

High Five/Low Five – Week 6

The weather might be colder nowadays, but the fantasy football season is truly heating up! Also hot are my recent picks, as my “guru-nicity” and “expert-itude” are finally shining bright, after yet another successful week of fantasy prognosticating. Feast your eyes on my Week 5 results… Last Week’s High Five Donovan McNabb: 16 for 21 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Week 3: Start ‘Em/Sit ‘Em

Twitter is a wonderful thing. I mean, who doesn’t want to know what everyone is thinking at all times? How else would I know that Rodney Harrison thinks the Patriots are going to have trouble covering Tony Gonzalez this weekend? Or that Jonathan Stewart ate some chunky soup last night and likes the new Jay-Z […]

TGIF: Key Players for Championship Weekend

With the arrival of Week 17 in the NFL, we also get the final week for fantasy football. We will witness the end of the 2008 fantasy season this weekend and a lot of league championships will be decided. The question of who to play and who to pick up can be a difficult task […]

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). […]
