Week 6 Notes & Observations: Patriots Stun Saints With Last Second Touchdown; Win 30-27

There’s a reason football games are 60 minutes and Sunday’s game used up every single one. It was a game where the Patriots looked in firm control of after a strong first half, but almost gave it away with cautious play-calling in the second half. The Patriots did everything they could to lose this game […]

Fantasy Fast Forward: NFL Week 3

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are 2-0. So are the Kansas City Chiefs and the Chicago Bears, for that matter. The Minnesota Vikings are 0-2. So are the Dallas Cowboys and the San Francisco 49ers, all three predicted to be 2010 playoff teams. So what does that all mean, really? Are the Bucs and Chiefs bound […]

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, […]

Week 12 Report Card: Saints Brees Past Patriots

Fantasy Football Report: Week 10

All week long I was told that Ladell Betts was questionable for Sunday’s game with an ankle injury, and even if he did play, he would be in a committee. So, I benched him. Instead, he rushed for 114 yds and a TD. If I had played him, I would have won my matchup. Oh, […]

Fantasy Football Report: Week 7

Me and SoB’s Chris had quite a fantasy football weekend. The two of us ended up squaring off against each other in two different leagues, including the SoB football league. We even had a mutual player in Dallas WR Miles Austin. You would think that it would be hard for either of us to root […]

Fantasy Football Focus: The Starting 11 – Wake Up, It’s Sleeper Time!

I have never claimed to be “a smart man.” So for me to write an article this week highlighting several of my sleeper picks before four of my five fantasy league drafts are held may not be the brightest of moves. But hey, these are the sacrifices a writer makes for his readers. Now the […]
