Countdown of Top 30 Fantasy RBs for 2013

August 16, 2013 Rankings at this point will prefer those with more potential and a cleaner road to playing time. There are only a few running backs out there that carry the ball more than 75% of the time (like Adrian Peterson, C.J. Spiller, Alfred Morris). On the flip side, guys like Darren Sproles and […]

With Aaron Hernandez Gone, Fantasy Owners Should Hope Jake Ballard Can Ball

After Aaron Hernandez was released by the Patriots on Wednesday, Jake Ballard, who now projects to start at tight end for the Patriots, tweeted for the first time in almost a week: “Do you like a little kick in your coke Do you like it goin’ up in smoke Do you like it on a […]

Update: Yahoo! Fantasy Football Still Sort of Down, Sports Head Ken Fuchs Sorry

If you’re trying to use Yahoo! Fantasy Sports this morning to check on your Fantasy Football or Basketball teams, you’re likely still running into a little trouble. That’s because Sunday’s truly annoying outage has spilled into Monday. The engineers over at Yahoo! are still working on identifying the root cause of the issue and fixing […]

Yahoo! Fantasy Football Down – Engineers “Working On It”

If you tried to make your usual adjustments before the NFL games today, you probably ran into some difficulty if your fantasy football league is run on Yahoo! That’s right – because on a Sunday, Yahoo! Fantasy Football has been down and out of service.

How Will Brandon Lloyd Fare in 2012?

Any fantasy football owners worried about New England’s Brandon Lloyd in 2012 should feel much better after Week 1 of the NFL season. Tom Brady has a variety of receiving options at his disposal, but the big four targets of Wes Welker, Rob Gronkowski, Aaron Hernandez and Lloyd should be able to help each other […]

Fantasy Football: Houston Texans RB Arian Foster’s Woes

There is one word in fantasy that no one wants associated with their star player: injury. Arian Foster owners have been all too familiar with this word lately. After racking up 1,616 yards on the ground and 604 receiving yards with 18 total touchdowns in 2010, people were wishing for the opportunity to snag him […]

Are the Bengals the Worst Fantasy Football Team?

Sept. 8 marked the beginning of two things: the NFL season and fantasy football. While fantasy football success does not always translate to wins for NFL teams, it means there is productivity on offense. Unfortunately for the Bengals this year, it looks like they will struggle in both areas. The Bengals may have the least […]

Fantasy Fast Forward: NFL Week 13

Welcome to Week 13 of the NFL season. By this point, you and your fantasy team fall into one of three categories… you either A) have clinched a playoff spot and are sitting pretty, just waiting for the fun to begin, B) have fallen out of contention and have turned your focus to Christmas shopping, […]

Fantasy Fast Forward: NFL Week 8

I’m not a man who’s afraid of commitment. Heck, I’m engaged (please, hold your applause)… if that’s not proof enough that I’m not a commitment-phobe, then I don’t know what is. But I’m starting to question my decision-making abilities when it comes to who, or what, I commit to. (Disclaimer to keep me out of […]

Fantasy Fast Forward: NFL Week 7

Maybe I missed the memo, but it seems like it’s a requirement this week that every article written that has to do with the NFL, has to make mention of the “devastating” hits to the head from Week 6. So I’ll oblige… after all, who am I to buck authority? And maybe I’m just being […]

Fantasy Fast Forward: NFL Week 6

An eventful Week 5 is in the books, as the 2010 NFL season just keeps motoring along as unpredictable as ever. Teams like the Cowboys, Vikings, and 49ers can’t seem to get out of their own way despite high preseason expectations, while surprise teams like the Chiefs and Buccaneers are riding high, at or near […]

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 […]

Fantasy Fast Forward: NFL Week 4

Ok, who’s ready for a Chiefs-Bears Super Bowl? We all know that the likelihood of that happening is still very slim, but with the opening three weeks of the season in the books, the odds of Kansas City and Chicago meeting in February has gone from “no way in heck” to “so you’re saying there’s […]

Fantasy Fast Forward: NFL Week 3

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are 2-0. So are the Kansas City Chiefs and the Chicago Bears, for that matter. The Minnesota Vikings are 0-2. So are the Dallas Cowboys and the San Francisco 49ers, all three predicted to be 2010 playoff teams. So what does that all mean, really? Are the Bucs and Chiefs bound […]

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 […]
