All-World Receiver Calvin Johnson Will Be a Handful for Patriots Pass Defense

When the Patriots face the Lions on Sunday at Gillette Stadium, they will have to defend the NFL’s best wide receiver Calvin Johnson. Johnson is in his eighth season and has been dominant in each of them. He has had over 1,000 yards in 5 of his previous seven seasons and has 520 yards and […]

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 […]

Matthew Stafford Breaks Drew Bledsoe’s Single-Season Pass Attempts Record

The Detroit Lions have had a disappointing year as a team. However, if there is a silver lining to salvage from their 4-12 season, it would most notably be WR Calvin Johnson setting the NFL single-season receiving yds record with 1,964 yds. Then we have a lesser-known record that takes a page of the history […]

Week 11 has come and gone, meaning the last four teams had their bye week and everyone in the NFL has played the same number of games (10). With six weeks left, who is poised to make a run to the playoffs, and who will trip over themselves in their effort to get there? One […]

Fantasy Fast Forward: NFL Week 1

We all love summertime. The mercury in the thermometer peaks, and so does the number of scantily clad women at the beach. But personally, I’m very happy to see the summer come to a close. Not because I want to see the lovely beach bunnies layer up for colder weather ahead, but because with the […]

Our fourth divisional fantasy preview takes us to the NFC North, a division that features heated rivalries and is filled with top notch fantasy talent. Last season, the Vikings earned the top spot in this foursome, coming ever-so-close to a Super Bowl appearance, instead losing in overtime of the NFC title game at the hands […]

Fantasy Football Report: Week 16

Tis the end of the line for a lot of you out there. Most leagues have wrapped up their action in Week 16, leaving some to celebrate and others to plan for 2010. To those in leagues where Week 17 is the championship game, then you need to stick around and soak up all of […]

High Five/Low Five – Week 13

The calendar has finally turned to its last page of the year, December. In most fantasy leagues, you have reached either the last week or the second to last week of your regular season. No time to waste, you NEED a win this week. So let’s get right to it. First off, we’ll look at […]

Fantasy Football Report: Week 11

I hate my team in the SoB league. I wish I had my juggernaut offense from last season when I had Kurt Warner, Philip Rivers, and Michael Turner. I’ll tell you another thing, Ladell Betts screwed me over for the second week in a row. Last week, he had ankle problems and didn’t practice, so […]

Fantasy Football Report: Week 4

I think we just need to start a pool. Which QB will leave a game with an injury this week. Week 4 saw an injury to rookie Matthew Stafford. Granted, he wasn’t as big a name as others who have bitten the dust this season, but it’s still something. I think the NFL needs to […]

Fantasy Football Focus: The Starting 11 – Diving Deep into Depth Chart Battles

By now, many of your fantasy football drafts probably have come and gone. Sure, your Labor Day weekend may feature a last minute draft or two, but at this point, your teams are most likely drafted and you’re just sitting back, waiting for Thursday’s kickoff to the season. But if you are sitting back, you […]
