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 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 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 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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Week 13 Sleepers

Given the recent wave of concussions and ankle sprains in the NFL, it is more important than ever to be on the lookout for that little extra boost to your offense. There is only one Thursday night game this week to worry about and we are all spared the horror of having to watch the […]

Week 8: Start ‘Em/Sit ‘Em

I am frustrated. I mentioned last week how owners should get creative when dealing with their bye weeks. I shared with you how I coped with a tough Week 4 by making two trades that value-wise weren’t in my favor, but allowed me to upgrade my starting lineup – or so I thought. Let’s look […]

Patriots Welcome Winless Titans to Gilette

Tennessee Titans (0-5) at New England Patriots (3-2) Time: 4:15 EST Where: Gillettle Stadium in Foxboro, Massachusetts TV: CBS Radio: 98.5 FM – The Sports Hub The Patriots are coming off a disappointing loss to the Broncos. Currently, New England is sitting even in the AFC East with the New York Jets with a 3-2 […]

Brady’s Struggles a Cause for Concern in 2009

Last weekend was not a good one to be a Boston sports fan. We watched the Red Sox blow leads of 5-2 in the seventh and 6-4 in the ninth in the same game and then immediately after, like a nice one-two punch combo, the Patriots blew a 10-point second half lead and lost to […]

Week 6: Start ‘Em/Sit ‘Em

Breaking up is the hardest thing to do. I just pulled out that cliché because it holds true in both real life and fantasy football. Over the years, I have learned that you do not win fantasy football leagues by holding onto big names waiting for them to start producing for you. I have found […]

PATS on the Back: Patriots vs. Broncos, Week 5

It was a game that fans around New England needed a win in. They had just finished watching their Red Sox blow a two-run, ninth inning lead, finishing their season with a sweep by the Angels. And so sports fans turned to the Patriots, facing an undefeated Denver Broncos team, led by ex-Patriot offensive coordinator […]

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 […]
