Winning the Wire and Preparing for the Playoffs: Week 13 Fantasy Sleepers

The bye weeks are over and playoff berths are on the line in most leagues this Week 13.  There are not many breakout waiver candidates to add this week, but I’ll look at a few players who may be available in your leagues who can help your team.  If your team is loaded and ready […]

Notes and Observations, Week 15: 49ers Outlast Patriots in a Heavyweight Bout, 41-34

Unlike the Texans game on Monday, Sunday night’s match-up of the 49ers and the Patriots lived up to all the hype. It had the feel of a heavyweight fight, and looked like a bloodbath early on. The Patriots turned things on late to make the game interesting, but the 49ers were able to hold off […]

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 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 […]

NFC West Fantasy Preview

Today I bring you the eighth and final installment of our divisional fantasy previews, finishing up with the wild NFC West. For the last few seasons, it’s been the Arizona Cardinals who have had a strangle hold on the top spot in this division, two years ago advancing to represent the NFC in the Super […]

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 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 9: Start ‘Em/Sit ‘Em

Brett Favre, Adrian Peterson, Steven Jackson, Sidney Rice, Percy Harvin, Bernard Berrian, Braylon Edwards, Jerricho Cotchery, Visanthe Shiancoe, Dustin Keller. What do these players all have in common? They are all on their byes this week. Why do you care? Well, you don’t really, but consider this – out of all the players on a […]

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 […]

High Five/Low Five: Week 7

The times, they are a-changin’. Change is everywhere around us lately. The leaves on the trees are going from green to brown and every color in between. One day this week it was 30 degrees and snowing, then 3 days later it was sunny and 70. A change is brewing in the fantasy football world […]

Fantasy Football Report: Week 5

I just watched “Little Giants” on television the other day. I also watched Monday Night Football last night and saw the semi-resurgence of Jets WR Braylon Edwards. It just made me think that Edwards is like the Little Giants WR “Hot Hands” Hanon, the WR who constantly dropped passes. Maybe Edwards learned to catch the […]

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 […]
