Winning the Wire and Surviving the Bye: Week 6 Sleepers

Only the Miami Dolphins and Atlanta Falcons are on Week 6 byes.  Atlanta is bafflingly 1-4 and may have just lost Julio Jones for the year.  The potential return of Steven Jackson in Week 7 is a silver lining amidst a train wreck of a season for Atlanta.  Week 5 was the week of the […]

Week 4 NFL Preview: Patriots vs. Falcons

The transition to the new receiving corps hasn’t been pretty, but they don’t draw pictures on the scoreboard. Bottom line is that our New England Patriots have found a way to win their first three games. Fans are used to seeing a well-oiled offensive machine out of Tom Brady and their frustration even amounted to boos this past […]

Week 3 Notes and Observations: Offense Finally Clicks, Patriots Beat Buccaneers 23-3

This was the game that everyone has been hoping to see. The defense continued to show how good they really are, and the offense finally found some type of rhythm to give the doubters something to be happy about. No one is picking the Buccaneers to win any Super Bowls anytime soon, but a win […]

Week 2 NFL Preview: Patriots vs. Jets

If you asked me to preview this game a week ago, I would have chuckled while predicting a laughable score in the Patriots favor. Today, there is no way I can do that. The NFL is a crazy league. The change of feeling has more to do with what I saw from the Pats than what […]

Patriots’ Starters Cruise in 31-14 Win Over Tampa

The New England Patriots continued to look impressive in this 2011 preseason, easily dispatching the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 31-14 at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Fla. The team jumped out to an early 21-0 first-quarter lead, reaching the endzone on each of the offense’s first three possessions. The defense matched the effort, sacking Tampa starting […]

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 9

This week, I’m going to attempt to put the “fast” in “Fantasy Fast Forward.” Why? Because as I’m typing this, I’m just a few short hours away from jetting off to Las Vegas, and like any other guy I know, I’m a procrastinator and haven’t packed a darn thing yet. So instead of racking up […]

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 […]

NFC South Fantasy Preview

The NFC South is a story of two “haves” and two “have-nots.” The ultimate “have” are the reigning Super Bowl champs, the New Orleans Saints. From top to bottom, on both sides of the ball, the Saints are stacked with stars that will no doubt have New Orleans thinking repeat, all season long. From there, […]

Week 16 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. Here we are, it is […]

Week 15 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. If you didn’t start the […]

Week 11 Sleepers

Yikes! Larry Johnson uses offensive gay slurs, Dwayne Bowe is using performance-enhancing drugs, and head coach Todd Haley wants nothing more than for QB Matt Cassel to sit on the bench so that Brodie Croyle can play every week. It sure is wild and crazy with them Duke boys up in Kansas City, what kind […]

Fantasy Football Report: Week 9

I did it! I finally dropped Eddie Royal in both of my leagues. I am free of his crap! I feel like I’ve been in an abusive relationship for nine weeks and now have found the courage to rid myself of the pain. Oh god, just watch him take off now. Headlines Larry Johnson Released […]

2009 NFL Draft Preview: Quarterbacks

It’s April, which means March Madness is nearly over and Major League Baseball is ready to open its season. It also means that Mel Kiper, Jr. of ESPN starts to earn his paycheck, because the NFL draft is all of a sudden around the corner. I will be previewing the top players at each position […]
