2013 Patriots Position Preview: Wide Receivers

The wide receiver position is a key focal point in the upcoming season for the New England Patriots. Wes Welker, who was Tom Brady’s favorite target the past six seasons, is now catching passes from Peyton Manning out in Denver. It will be a new cast for Brady this season which could pose a significant […]

Patriots 2012 Roster Preview: Will the Kids be Alright?

Michael Felger began his show on Tuesday with a very interesting question. I am paraphrasing, but the question was do Patriot fans feel the same way about the team’s chances this year as they did at the beginning of training camp? Felger and Massarotti spent a lot of time discussing a Monday column by the […]

2012 Patriots’ Wide Receivers Review: Excitement & Intrigue

As the start of the 2012 regular season quickly approaches, one of the most interesting positions on this team is that of the wide receivers. In the 2011 season the Patriots finished out with a receiving corps consisting of Wes Welker, Deion Branch, Julian Edelman, Matthew Slater, and Chad Ochocinco Johnson. We all know how […]

Patriots 2012 Off-Season Priorities: Wide Receivers

In an off-season that perhaps is even more exciting than last year’s lockout-shortened free agency period, the Patriots have plenty of needs.  None are bigger, however, than wide receiver and defensive end. Let’s first look at receiver. Last season, we saw a soon-to-be 33-year-old Deion Branch get even older right before our eyes, totaling only […]

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 […]

Week 7 Pickups

Roy Williams has been a tough fantasy player to figure out. He was fairly productive in Detroit, then he gets traded to Dallas and you figure his fantasy value can only go up in a better offense, right? Wrong. Then the next season roles around and you figure he has had more time to work […]

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 […]

Fantasy Fast Forward: NFL Week 1

We all love summertime. The mercury in the thermometer peaks, and so does the number of scantily clad women at the beach. But personally, I’m very happy to see the summer come to a close. Not because I want to see the lovely beach bunnies layer up for colder weather ahead, but because with the […]

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 […]

TGIF: No Marshall? No Problem!

It has been speculation all week, but now the bad news is a reality. Broncos WR Brandon Marshall will miss the team’s season finale this Sunday against Kansas City after tweaking his hamstring in practice earlier in the week. Head coach Josh McDaniels made the decision today to bench Marshall before causing further harm to […]

Week 17 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. Leagues with a Week 17 […]

Patriots Gets Ready For Perfect Broncos

There were the 1-0 Jets, then the 2-0 Falcons, and the 3-0 Ravens, and now the Patriots will get ready for the surprise 4-0 Denver Broncos. New England is riding a two-game win streak, following impressive wins over Atlanta and Baltimore. Now, they will have to survive a Broncos team with a top ranked defense […]

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 […]

Broncos v. Chiefs, Who Would Win?

The Denver Broncos and Kansas Chiefs recently acquired former Patriots personnel to help revive both AFC West teams. The Broncos picked up Josh McDaniels as head coach, and players Jabar Gaffney and LaMont Jordan. The Chiefs picked up Matt Cassel and Mike Vrabel, as well as Scott Pioli as the new general manager. Many are […]
