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.

High Five/Low Five – Week 17

The end of the year, the end of the decade, and the end of another fabulous fantasy football season is upon us. There is joy. There is pain. There is triumph. There is defeat. Ok, lots of defeat. After all, there can only be one fantasy football champion crowned in your league, and if you’re […]

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 […]

High Five/Low Five – Week 3

Yikes! After an opening week where yours truly was clicking on all cylinders, Week 2 went over like a fart in church. Let me quickly review my picks from last week, a set of players that can only be termed as “a major flop.” High Five Picks (Week 2 Results) Leon Washington: Just 58 rushing […]

Fantasy Football Report: Week 9

I am part of two fantasy football leagues and it is a good thing I only report in detail on the Sports of Boston league. I am not ashamed to admit that I am in dead last in the other league. In terms of points, my team is not the worst. In fact, the team […]
