Patriots Will Attempt to Build Momentum Against Chiefs

After snapping a two-game skid last Sunday against the Jets, the Patriots will try to start a winning streak when they face the 4-5 Kansas City Chiefs on Monday night. The Chiefs will be without starting quarterback Matt Cassel due to a hand injury that will require the former Patriot clipboard-holder to undergo surgery. Pittsburgh graduate […]

Scott Pioli: The Reason For Kansas City’s Turnaround

This week, the Kansas City Chiefs will head into Gillette Stadium for a Monday Night Football matchup against the New England Patriots.  While former Patriot, Matt Cassel will not play due to a hand injury, the game will still be a homecoming for former Patriot executive and current Kansas City GM Scott Pioli. Pioli was […]

Not So Happy Reunion: Matt Cassel Out Against the Patriots

Three years ago the little-known career backup, Matt Cassel, stepped in after the injury to a future Hall of Fame quarterback. Three years ago, it was Cassel who led the Patriots to an 11-5 record — including an undefeated December. Three years ago, it was Cassel who became a fan favorite in New England after […]

Fantasy Fast Forward: NFL Week 12

So for those of you who had too much turkey and fell asleep for your annual Thanksgiving Day nap before you remembered to set your fantasy lineup for the week, I’m here to save the day. Ain’t that tryptophan a bitch sometimes!?! It’s Week 12, and while six teams have already put their games in […]

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 […]

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 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 […]

Chiefs Attempting to Rebuild Patriots Dynasty?

The Chiefs wrested Scott Pioli away from the Patriots last season and he promptly traded for Matt Cassel and Mike Vrabel. He is now adding former New Englanders to his coaching stable with this week’s acquisitions of Offensive Coordinator Charlie Weis and Defensive Coordinator Romeo Crennel. Weis and Crennel held the same positions in New England […]

High Five/Low Five – Week 17

The end of the year, the end of the decade, and the end of another fabulous fantasy football season is upon us. There is joy. There is pain. There is triumph. There is defeat. Ok, lots of defeat. After all, there can only be one fantasy football champion crowned in your league, and if you’re […]

High Five/Low Five – Week 15

Well, if you’re still reading this article here in Week 15, looking for fantasy football advice, I applaud you. It must mean that your team, or teams, are still alive, fighting for fantasy glory. And for those of you who play this game for money (and really, why wouldn’t you play for money?), you’re already […]

Week 12 Sleepers

We’re getting down to the nitty gritty in the final weeks of the fantasy regular season. I myself have only three weeks left before the playoffs start and I am searching desperately for whatever edge I can get. In honor of this important time of the season, I am going to shake things up a […]

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 […]

Week 9 Sleepers

I don’t know why, but for some reason, I still have a Cleveland Browns player on my fantasy team. Granted, I never start him unless I need a bye week fill-in, but still, I am employing the services of wide receiver Mohamed Massaquoi. In week 4, he had a breakout game with eight catches for […]

Week 5 Sleepers

Apologies to anybody who picked up Darren McFadden solely based on my advice. All he did was carry the ball six time for -3 yards. Ouch! Sorry, but he was facing Houston. I thought he’d at least manage a decent 70 yds or something. This just goes to prove that nobody on Oakland should be […]
