Winning the Waiver Wire: Week 3 Sleepers

Here come the injuries, bye weeks, and breakout stars that make fantasy football such an intriguing roller-coaster ride.  Roddy White is a hobbled decoy, Steven Jackson is probably out until Week 7, Eddie Lacy and Andre Johnson suffered concussions.  To help you out, I will highlight some useful waiver wire/free agent targets.  Also, remember that […]

Fantasy Fast Forward: NFL Week 12

So for those of you who had too much turkey and fell asleep for your annual Thanksgiving Day nap before you remembered to set your fantasy lineup for the week, I’m here to save the day. Ain’t that tryptophan a bitch sometimes!?! It’s Week 12, and while six teams have already put their games in […]

Week 4 Pickups

With no major injuries this week, the choices on the waiver wire are slim, particularly amongst running backs. A hot pickup in past weeks, Peyton Hillis, had a huge day for Cleveland this past Sunday with Jerome Harrison sidelined.  Hillis is currently available in about 25 percent of league, and is an obvious person to […]

Week 3 Pickups

The early weeks of the football season is an important time for fantasy team owners. Often players that are barely on the mind of fantasy owners during the draft end up carrying a team into the playoffs. Last year, Sidney Rice was one of the more productive receivers in the game, but largely went undrafted […]

AFC West Fantasy Preview

The West is best? Not in the NFL they aren’t. Today’s divisional fantasy preview takes us to the AFC West, where the Chargers reign supreme. And then there’s everyone else. You’re not going to find much elite talent in this division, but I’m here to point you in the direction of some solid middle round […]

Fantasy Football Report: My 2009 Season

So here we are, 17 weeks of grueling combat later and the dust has finally settled. Only one man in your league’s is left standing, hopefully it was you. I can honestly tell you that I was not at the top of the mountain this season. I could list several reasons why my season ended […]

TGIF: Why is Eddie Not So Royal?

Instead of being informative this week, I choose to use this time to bitch and complain. Enjoy! Not every outstanding rookie can have an equally great follow-up season. This is what we have come to know as the “Sophomore Slump”. While it is hard to live up the expectations of a great first year, it […]

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 […]

Fantasy Football Report: Week 1

Oh it feels so good to be back. The start of the NFL season also means the start of the “Fantasy Football Report”. Once again we will be bringing you a recap of some of the best players from the previous week as well as those who did not live up to expectations. Are you […]

High Five/Low Five – Week 1

Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines. We’ve braved the brutal cold of winter. We’ve weathered the wet spring and early summer. And now that September is upon us, we find ourselves on the eve of yet another NFL season. And for you fantasy football freaks, this week marks the first of many where you’ll find […]

Fantasy Football Focus: The Starting 11 – Diving Deep into Depth Chart Battles

By now, many of your fantasy football drafts probably have come and gone. Sure, your Labor Day weekend may feature a last minute draft or two, but at this point, your teams are most likely drafted and you’re just sitting back, waiting for Thursday’s kickoff to the season. But if you are sitting back, you […]

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 […]

TGIF: Wide Receivers I Like That Are Not Named Fitzgerald, Johnson, or Moss

Last week, I didn’t necessarily explain my disgust for wide receivers, I just pointed out that you can afford to wait on them (in a two-QB league anyway). So you may be wondering if I actually like the WR spot this season. Well yeah, of course I do. The common names like Larry Fitzgerald, Andre […]

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 […]
