Fantasy Football: Start ‘Em, Sit ‘Em Week 3

An 0-2 start may be an awful way to begin the 2013 fantasy football season, but there is still time to recover with injuries to running backs and different sleeper options at quarterback and wide receiver as the season goes forward. The Week 3 schedule may be tough for some teams, but the matchups below […]

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 […]

AFC South Fantasy Preview

The next stop on the fantasy preview train brings us to the AFC South. This division has some of the best top shelf talent of them all, featuring one of the top 3 fantasy QBs in Peyton Manning, two of the top 4 fantasy RBs in Chris Johnson and Maurice Jones-Drew, two of the top […]

TGIF: Fantasy Football Draft, 2010

With the conclusion of the 2009 season, it is time to start looking ahead to the future. Although it may be too early to accurately project what the first round of the draft will be next season, it is still fun to think about. I have gotten into the habit of making my prediction for […]

Fantasy Football Report: My 2009 Season

So here we are, 17 weeks of grueling combat later and the dust has finally settled. Only one man in your league’s is left standing, hopefully it was you. I can honestly tell you that I was not at the top of the mountain this season. I could list several reasons why my season ended […]

Patriots Report Card: Week 16

Quarterback: A+ Tom Brady returned to his ’07 form against the Jaguars on Sunday, completing 23/26 passes for 267 yards and four touchdowns.  Brady played an almost perfect game on Sunday, as his 149.0 quarterback rating would indicate.

Pats Aim For Postseason Berth Against Jags

Sure, Christmas might be over, but New England has the opportunity to give a last minute gift. An AFC East Title. The Patriots have the opportunity to win the division with a win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Jags are fighting for a playoff spot of their own and are looking to run all over […]

TGIF: What Has Become of Yahoo! Fantasy Football’s First Round?

Now, I am focusing on just one provider of fantasy football, so the rankings may differ from other leagues. Every season, for people who are not that familiar with the game of fantasy football, we tend to lean heavily on the rankings. Even if you are a seasoned veteran, you can’t help but be influenced […]

Fantasy Football Report: Week 6

I fell into one of the all-time classic fantasy football dilemmas this past week. It came in the form of two players: New England WR Wes Welker, and Denver QB Kyle Orton. In one league, I had both players starting. In another league, my opponent had both players starting. The unfortunate part was that coming […]

TGIF: Jack Del Rio Benches Mike Sims-Walker and Screws Everyone Else

If you are one of the lucky ones to be in on the Mike Sims-Walker craze, then you have been benefiting from his fantastic play over the past few weeks. The second-year WR had hauled in 19 catches for 278 yds and 3 TD from week 2 to week 4. I myself am a Sims-Walker […]

Fantasy Football Report: Week 3

Is it just me, or does it seem like every NFL player is made of fragile porcelain? A week hasn’t gone by yet where we haven’t seen a major injury go down. Yes, football players get injured all the time, but over the last three weeks, players are suffering injuries that are causing them to […]

TGIF: What Do You Do With the 5th Pick in 2009?

This question has been pondered by scholars and other great literary minds since…well, when player rankings came out a few months ago. Picture this scenario: you are “rewarded” with a top-5 pick in a fantasy football draft. Unfortunately, this is 2009 and you have the fifth overall pick. Let’s face it, you were banking on landing […]

TGIF: Fun With Fantasy Football’s First Round

Let’s be honest for a moment. Trying to prep for a fantasy football draft is borderline useless. It is without question the most unpredictable of all the fantasy games (well, the major ones anyway…who cares about fantasy NASCAR?). Thanks to its small number of games and high risk of injury, attempting to project player stats […]

Fantasy Football Focus: The Starting 11 – Top Dawgs

It’s been said that first impressions go a long way. You get introduced to someone for the first time and you accidentally spit on them when greeting them, they are going to remember that forever. Go on a job interview with a glob of hair gel hanging from your ear, a la Ben Stiller in […]
