Notes and Observations Week 17: Patriots Beat Bills; Clinch #2 Seed in the AFC

After everything that has happened to the Patriots this season, it is absolutely incredible they are the number two seed in the AFC. The offseason was highlighted by Tom Brady’s favorite receivers from the year before, but in the worst possible scenarios. Wes Welker went to Denver to catch pass from Brady’s rival Peyton Manning. […]

Adrian Peterson moves back to the top five this week surfacing at No. 3.  Rob Gronkowski, Antonio Brown, Eddie Lacy and Josh Gordon all ride waves of recent consistency up the board.  Aaron Rodgers may reappear in Week 14 if he is healthy to go after the Packers mini-bye.  Six teams are in action on […]

How the Patriots Beat Peyton Manning’s Broncos, and Where They Go From Here

Wow. Sunday night was certainly a game that lends itself to hyperbole, guttural wailing, screaming and crying. At times I found myself elated, followed shortly by rage, followed by desperation in sorrow. The win probably chart above sums up the game pretty perfectly, if you ask me. It was, in short, a typical Tom Brady-Peyton […]

ESPN’s Sport Science Says Gronkowski Could Have Caught Pass on MNF

In case you missed it, ESPN’s Sport Science studied the final play between the New England Patriots and Carolina Panthers on Monday Night Football to definitively answer the question everyone was asking: could Rob Gronkowski have caught that pass?

SoB Fantasy Football Top 50 Big Board: Week 12

Calvin Johnson is the new leader on the Big Board, becoming the first non-running back to hold the top spot.  He simply cannot be stopped and he’s even more valuable in PPR leagues.  He may even go first in some 2014 fantasy drafts.  LeSean McCoy moves back in the top five as he rests up […]

SoB Fantasy Football Top 50 Big Board: Week 11

Ben Tate, Andre Brown, and Andre Ellington all join the Top 50 this week.  Marshawn Lynch rides a strong Week 10 performance up to No. 4.  Similarly, receivers Demaryius Thomas and Antonio Brown rise to 11 and 23, respectively.  Frank Gore has been rock solid for the 49ers and he just keeps moving up.  Tom […]

Patriots Bye Week Update: Roster Moves, Incognito-Martin Fallout

Roster Moves Considering that a solid portion of their roster has been decimated by injuries, it’s a pretty big surprise that the Patriots made no defensive moves during their bye week. The Patriots did however release the injury prone Austin Collie. Collie was practically useless, recording only three receptions for 34 yards in his brief […]

SoB Fantasy Football Top 50 Big Board: Week 10

The top three hold their spots on this week’s Board while Adrian Peterson jumps Marshawn Lynch to move up to No. 4.  Patriots Rob Gronkowski, Stevan Ridley, and Tom Brady all ascend due to New England finding their rhythm against Pittsburgh.  Rookie running backs Eddie Lacy and Zac Stacy jump to 15 and 20 respectively.  […]

SoB Fantasy Football Top 50 Big Board: Week 9

Calvin Johnson continues his ascent all the way up from No. 9 to No. 2 on this week’s Big Board.  Jamaal Charles remains atop the board and Aaron Rodgers jumps to No. 10, becoming the third quarterback in the Top 10.  I think many people, including myself, believed entering this season that 12-14 quarterbacks would […]

SoB Fantasy Football Top 50 Big Board: Week 8

Another Big Board member is done for the year (Reggie Wayne) and Doug Martin may be finished as well with a shoulder/labrum injury.  Fantasy roster staples Jimmy Graham, Arian Foster and DeMarco Murray are all suffering from less severe injuries..  However, the board must continue.   Adrian Peterson drops out of the top three for the […]

SoB Fantasy Football Top 50 Big Board: Week 7

Injuries continue to take their toll on stars like Randall Cobb, DeMarco Murray, and Jimmy Graham.  Calvin Johnson has also been visibly limited by a knee injury.  Cobb is out until Week 15 and Murray’s return date is unknown, but he will return long before Cobb, which keeps him in the top 50.  Jamaal Charles’s […]

SoB Fantasy Football Top 50 Big Board: Week 6

Breakout receivers from Week 5 Alshon Jeffery and T.Y. Hilton crack the Top 50, and Justin Blackmon is likely to join them soon in the Top 50.  Peyton Manning could easily be No. 1, but the lack of depth at RB1 keeps Adrian Peterson and Jamaal Charles atop the board even with the Vikings on […]

SoB Fantasy Football Top 50 Big Board: Week 5

Peyton Manning surges to number three in the Week 5 Big Board after putting up gaudy numbers with ease through four weeks of play.  Tony Gonzalez returns on the heels of a great performance against the Patriots while C.J. Spiller hangs on by a thread at No. 49.  Rob Gronkowski and Eddie Lacy are coming […]
