Fantasy Football Start ‘Em, Sit ‘Em: Week 12

With Josh Gordon active and Ben Tate now on the Minnesota Vikings, Week 12 should be the week that most teams know their fate (and possibly seeding) for their fantasy teams. With the final two teams on bye this week, it is the last time you will have to bench a proven fantasy commodity for […]

Fantasy Football Start ‘Em, Sit ‘Em: Week 8

With not many players on bye this week, there are plenty of match ups to take advantage of in Week 8. There isn’t much time to get back into the playoff race, so don’t tinker too much. Start ‘Em Ryan Tannehill (vs. Jacksonville): The Jaguars have a weak secondary and Tannehill should be able to throw […]

Vince Wilfork Out for Season With Torn Achilles

The Patriots just cannot catch a break this season. On Sunday night against the Atlanta Falcons, New England’s star defensive tackle, Vince Wilfork, suffered a torn Achilles in his right foot and will likely be out for the rest of the season. Despite a 4-0 start, the Patriots season has been plagued by injuries, especially […]

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 […]

Fantasy Football Draft Help: Top 10 Quarterbacks

The quarterback position in fantasy football is rapidly changing. The NFL is becoming becoming more and more of a passing league every year. Combine that with rookies stepping in right away and becoming stars at the position, and there are several directions you can go. I believe there are 15 QBs this year who are legitimate fantasy starters in […]

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 […]

Fantasy Fast Forward: NFL Week 7

Maybe I missed the memo, but it seems like it’s a requirement this week that every article written that has to do with the NFL, has to make mention of the “devastating” hits to the head from Week 6. So I’ll oblige… after all, who am I to buck authority? And maybe I’m just being […]

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 […]

Fantasy Fast Forward: NFL Week 2

With Week 1 of the NFL in the books, you and your fantasy team are in one of two situations. Situation #1: you won your first week’s match-up and you’ve got visions of fantasy football glory running through your head, all the way to your league’s championship. Situation #2: you’ve got Kevin Kolb and Ryan […]

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, […]

Welker Returns, Pats Roll Over Falcons 28-10

I know these games don’t count. I know it’s just the preseason. But, football is football. It can be physical whether you’re playing two-hand touch or playing in the Super Bowl. That’s why Wes Welker playing on the second game of the preseason on Thursday night is so remarkable, just seven months after a major […]

Fantasy Football Report: Week 12

In one of my leagues, I have lost two straight weeks. Normally, I wouldn’t dwell on it, but in both losses, I have lost only because I made a last minute roster move. Every Sunday, I make a frantic re-arrangement of my roster before the first kickoff. Two weeks ago, if I had played WR […]

High Five/Low Five: Week 12

And life goes on. We’ve eaten our turkey. We’ve rooted on our local high school football team. We’ve enjoyed time with our family. Ok, exchange the word “enjoyed” with “endured” in most cases. And we’ve now woken up from our tryptophan-induced slumber. There’s nothing left to do but to focus on what’s left on our […]

Week 10: Start ‘Em/Sit ‘Em

Have you watched that new show on ABC called Flash Forward? For those who haven’t here’s a quick summary. The whole world blacked out for 137 seconds, during which, everyone saw a vision that took place six months in the future. I’m going to stop right there because that’s all I need for this introduction. […]

High Five/Low Five: Week 9

This week in sports, we saw the New York Yankees roll to their record 27th World Series championship. The Yanks, complete with their $200+ million payroll, dished out mucho dinero in the offseason, as they always do, and after nine seasons of failed investments, their purchases finally paid off. In the fantasy football world, now […]
