Betting on Monday Night Football? In New England we trust

I was out of commission this past Sunday, but I saved my lone and best bet of the week for last. Tonight, the New England Patriots will be traveling to play at a hostile environment against the Kansas City Chiefs, and I believe the Pats at -3 are a steal. I believe this line should […]

Patriots Run Defense Will Face One of the Season’s Biggest Tests in Week Four

When the Patriots face the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday night, they will face one of the most potent rush offenses in the NFL. In a Monday night game on the road it will be important for the Patriots to set the physical tone on both sides of the ball. Despite the Chiefs being 1-2, […]

SoB Fantasy Football Top 50 Big Board: Week 13

Adrian Peterson moves back to the top five this week surfacing at No. 3.  Rob Gronkowski, Antonio Brown, Eddie Lacy and Josh Gordon all ride waves of recent consistency up the board.  Aaron Rodgers may reappear in Week 14 if he is healthy to go after the Packers mini-bye.  Six teams are in action on […]

SoB Fantasy Football Top 50 Big Board: Week 11

Ben Tate, Andre Brown, and Andre Ellington all join the Top 50 this week.  Marshawn Lynch rides a strong Week 10 performance up to No. 4.  Similarly, receivers Demaryius Thomas and Antonio Brown rise to 11 and 23, respectively.  Frank Gore has been rock solid for the 49ers and he just keeps moving up.  Tom […]

SoB Fantasy Football Top 50 Big Board: Week 10

The top three hold their spots on this week’s Board while Adrian Peterson jumps Marshawn Lynch to move up to No. 4.  Patriots Rob Gronkowski, Stevan Ridley, and Tom Brady all ascend due to New England finding their rhythm against Pittsburgh.  Rookie running backs Eddie Lacy and Zac Stacy jump to 15 and 20 respectively.  […]

SoB Fantasy Football Top 50 Big Board: Week 9

Calvin Johnson continues his ascent all the way up from No. 9 to No. 2 on this week’s Big Board.  Jamaal Charles remains atop the board and Aaron Rodgers jumps to No. 10, becoming the third quarterback in the Top 10.  I think many people, including myself, believed entering this season that 12-14 quarterbacks would […]

SoB Fantasy Football Top 50 Big Board: Week 8

Another Big Board member is done for the year (Reggie Wayne) and Doug Martin may be finished as well with a shoulder/labrum injury.  Fantasy roster staples Jimmy Graham, Arian Foster and DeMarco Murray are all suffering from less severe injuries..  However, the board must continue.   Adrian Peterson drops out of the top three for the […]

SoB Fantasy Football Top 50 Big Board: Week 7

Injuries continue to take their toll on stars like Randall Cobb, DeMarco Murray, and Jimmy Graham.  Calvin Johnson has also been visibly limited by a knee injury.  Cobb is out until Week 15 and Murray’s return date is unknown, but he will return long before Cobb, which keeps him in the top 50.  Jamaal Charles’s […]

SoB Fantasy Football Top 50 Big Board: Week 6

Breakout receivers from Week 5 Alshon Jeffery and T.Y. Hilton crack the Top 50, and Justin Blackmon is likely to join them soon in the Top 50.  Peyton Manning could easily be No. 1, but the lack of depth at RB1 keeps Adrian Peterson and Jamaal Charles atop the board even with the Vikings on […]

SoB Fantasy Football Top 50 Big Board: Week 4

This board is appropriately kind to Denver Broncos because they are a dominating offensive machine.  Peyton Manning, Demaryius Thomas, and Wes Welker all get bumps in the rankings while Eric Decker returns and Julius Thomas makes an appearance at No. 50 after scoring in each 2013 contest. Ahmad Bradshaw would definitely be on this list […]

Fantasy Fast Forward: NFL Week 11

After giving myself a bye week last week, “Fantasy Fast Forward” is back in action to help you down the stretch and get you into your fantasy league’s playoffs. It’s crunch time, but if you’re still reading about fantasy football, that means you must be still alive for a coveted playoff spot. And heck, if […]

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 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: Fantasy Football Draft, 2010

With the conclusion of the 2009 season, it is time to start looking ahead to the future. Although it may be too early to accurately project what the first round of the draft will be next season, it is still fun to think about. I have gotten into the habit of making my prediction for […]
