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 […]

Starting with a Blank Slaton?

Continuing my run of creative, pun-intended titles for my Fantasy Football pieces (joining “Running Back to Basics” and “The NFL Quarterback-up Club“), I now bring you “Starting with a Blank Slaton,” which of course refers to that pint-sized running back we all love from the Houston Texans: Steve Slaton. Slaton is a much-maligned back this […]

High Five/Low Five – Week 11

Say “bye-bye” to bye weeks! Finally, after seven weeks of juggling your roster and piecing together your fantasy roster from week to week, this week you’ll finally have all your fantasy horses lined up in the starting gates come game time. Or will you? With the latest rash of big injuries to impact fantasy players, […]

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 […]

Fantasy Football Report: Week 8

I think it is time that we made it official. Next season, nobody should draft LaDainian Tomlinson in the first round. I know, I know, he used to be a great back and was fantasy football’s most dominant player. I myself never had the pleasure of having LT on any of my football teams, and […]

High Five/Low Five – Week 1

Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines. We’ve braved the brutal cold of winter. We’ve weathered the wet spring and early summer. And now that September is upon us, we find ourselves on the eve of yet another NFL season. And for you fantasy football freaks, this week marks the first of many where you’ll find […]

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 […]

TGIF: Fantasy Football Draft, 2009

The regular season has only been over for a few days but, that doesn’t mean we can’t start thinking about next season. I pulled a similar stunt like this when I made a first round projection for the 2009 baseball season. So naturally, I am back again to do the same thing only this time, […]
