Week 4 Pickups

With no major injuries this week, the choices on the waiver wire are slim, particularly amongst running backs. A hot pickup in past weeks, Peyton Hillis, had a huge day for Cleveland this past Sunday with Jerome Harrison sidelined.¬† Hillis is currently available in about 25 percent of league, and is an obvious person to […]

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 […]

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: Week 14

The end of Week 14 signifies the start of the fantasy playoffs for everybody now. I missed the playoffs in one league, but actually managed to make it in another. As for those still in a championship race, be sure to be alert this week as the NFL not only has a Thursday night game […]

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.

High Five/Low Five – Week 5

This weekend, we celebrate the accomplishments of Christopher Columbus, a spunky young sailor with an “I’ll prove you wrong” attitude. “The world is flat? HA! I’ll show you! I’m going to sail this boat west and come out on the other side…see you in India!” Well Columbus was half right. Indeed, the world was not […]

High Five/Low Five – Week 2

I don’t like to toot my own horn…usually. But when you’re clicking on all cylinders right from the start, I don’t think it should go unnoticed. So let me just quickly look at last week’s article and see how I did… High Five Picks (Week 1 Results) Matt Hasselbeck: 279 passing yds. (good for 8th […]

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, […]
