Fantasy Fast Forward: NFL Week 5

“Everything seems to have a way of evening out for me.” About 15 years ago now on “Seinfeld,” there was an episode when Jerry had everything evening out for him. He lost a comedy gig, then five minutes later he got another one instead. Elaine threw 20 bucks out the window from Jerry’s wallet, only […]

AFC South Fantasy Preview

The next stop on the fantasy preview train brings us to the AFC South. This division has some of the best top shelf talent of them all, featuring one of the top 3 fantasy QBs in Peyton Manning, two of the top 4 fantasy RBs in Chris Johnson and Maurice Jones-Drew, two of the top […]

The Experimental Pro Bowl Format was Better

To nobody’s surprise the offenses lit up the scoreboard in the 2010 Pro Bowl as the American Football Conference edged the National Football Conference, 41-34. It was a typical Pro Bowl. There were no hard hits, with the exception of San Diego wideout Vincent Jackson’s crack-back block on Green Bay linebacker Clay Matthews. Most of […]

Pats Aim For Postseason Berth Against Jags

Sure, Christmas might be over, but New England has the opportunity to give a last minute gift. An AFC East Title. The Patriots have the opportunity to win the division with a win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Jags are fighting for a playoff spot of their own and are looking to run all over […]

Week 15 Sleepers

Every Wednesday, I will talk about potential fantasy football sleepers for each matchup taking place. I will go game-by-game and pick out one or two players who can most likely be found in your league’s free agent pool and explain why they can be of use to you that week. If you didn’t start the […]

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 8

Happy Halloween, fantasy football fans! So I have always considered Halloween as the unofficial halfway point of the fantasy football season. By now, you know if your team is a contender or pretender. You know if your roster is haunted or not. You know if they have had a spell cast against them. You know […]

Fantasy Football Report: Week 5

I just watched “Little Giants” on television the other day. I also watched Monday Night Football last night and saw the semi-resurgence of Jets WR Braylon Edwards. It just made me think that Edwards is like the Little Giants WR “Hot Hands” Hanon, the WR who constantly dropped passes. Maybe Edwards learned to catch the […]

Fantasy Football Report: Week 4

I think we just need to start a pool. Which QB will leave a game with an injury this week. Week 4 saw an injury to rookie Matthew Stafford. Granted, he wasn’t as big a name as others who have bitten the dust this season, but it’s still something. I think the NFL needs to […]

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 2: Start ‘Em/Sit ‘Em

Welcome to the first edition of the Fantasy Radar: Football Edition! For the football season I will be recommending players to start and sit at each position for the upcoming week. I will avoid recommending the obvious names such as, Adrian Peterson, Drew Brees or Tom Brady who you start no matter what team they […]

Fantasy Football Focus: The Starting 11 – Wake Up, It’s Sleeper Time!

I have never claimed to be “a smart man.” So for me to write an article this week highlighting several of my sleeper picks before four of my five fantasy league drafts are held may not be the brightest of moves. But hey, these are the sacrifices a writer makes for his readers. Now the […]
