Is it time to rely on Philip Rivers to lead your fantasy team?

Week 5 is upon us which means the bye week is in full swing as four teams — including the 4-0 Carolina Panthers — are going to be off a week. So, without Adrian Peterson or Cam Newton, how will your team win? Well, here are some of my suggestions:

Start ‘Em

Philip Rivers (vs. Pittsburgh): The Steelers defense is strong against the run and Rivers will see plenty of opportunity to throw the ball. Expect 300+ yards and at least two scores this week in a high-scoring affair. Continue reading Fantasy Football Start ‘Em, Sit ‘Em: Week 5, 2015 »

Matthew Stafford might be in for a long night at Seattle (USATSI

It’s officially the first bye week, which means those without New England Patriots and the few Tennessee Titans players worth starting need to find some players to start in Week 4. Sure, most of these players are owned, but there could be a few surprises in the shallower leagues still out there on the waiver wire.

Here are some starts/sit for Week 4:

Start ‘Em

Cam Newton (vs. Tampa Bay): With 16 total touchdowns in six career games against the Buccaneers, Newton should be a go-to guy in Division matchups every single time this season. Sure, this is the second straight week Newton is a start, but you need to ride him while he is hot. Continue reading Fantasy Football Start ‘Em, Sit ‘Em: Week 4 »

Is it time to trust Cam newton again?

Two weeks off the table and the bye weeks are nearly upon us, but Week 3 is the final full week until later in the season. So, make sure to get all your superstars in there and make sure to bench players who have bad matchups before you have to play your bench players due to bye-week replacements. Here are some of my recommendations:

Start ‘Em

Cam Newton (vs. New Orleans): The Saints’ defense have the third-worst passer rating against QBs and Newton put up a huge game in Week 14 last year with three passing touchdowns and a rushing score. If you are planning to play Newton based on matchups, then this is one of those times to put him in your lineup. Continue reading Fantasy Football Start ‘Em, Sit ‘Em: Week 3 »

Could Tony Romo be in for a rough game on Sunday?

Week 1 is in the books and from running backs to wide receivers injuries are starting to accumulate. With some players still making progress this season, here are some starts/sits for Week 2 of the NFL season:

Start ‘Em

Sam Bradford (vs. Dallas): The Cowboys’ secondary is not all it is cracked up to be and Bradford showed flashes against a solid Falcons’ defense in the second half. Expect at least two or three touchdown passes for the former St. Louis Ram this week. Continue reading Fantasy Football Start ‘Em, Sit ‘Em: Week 2 2015 »

With Week 1 finally upon us, is Melvin Gordon ready to shine or will he fall under the pressure of playing in the NFL?

Fantasy football is finally back and that means it is time for start/sit articles from everywhere. Sure, the best thing to do is to just believe in your gut, but here are some players who could help/hurt you in Week 1 of this fantasy football season.

Start ‘Em

Carson Palmer (vs. New Orleans): The Saints’ defense is a mess as two young corners are going to be the starters and Jairus Byrd will be out Week 1, so Palmer should be able to have some huge throws and be a QB that could be a top-5 guy at his position.  Continue reading Fantasy Football Start ‘Em, Sit ‘Em: Week 1 2015 »

The Dramatic Rise of Daily Fantasy Sports

August 27, 2015 at 6:54pm in Fantasy

You likely can’t go a day without hearing someone talk about Draft Kings, or hearing a radio advertisement for FanDuel. Its popularity is hard to ignore. The allure of possibly winning $1 million legally and by spending not so much is just too hard to pass up for some.

Having a rough draft dooms many seasonal and dynasty fantasy owners, but that’s no problem for the daily games. If you have a bad draft, you lose on the first day. But there’s always a tomorrow in the world of daily fantasy sports games. Continue reading The Dramatic Rise of Daily Fantasy Sports »

Fantasy Baseball Draft Review

March 26, 2015 at 11:25am in Fantasy, MLB, Opinion, Top Story
Adam Jones (

It’s getting closer and closer to opening day, and if you’re like me then you’ve already got fantasy baseball on your mind. Many of you may have even done your drafts by now. You may even have some money on the line.

Personally, I’m in a 10-team dynasty league with friends that’s extremely competitive. Every guy in the league knows his stuff, and they’re all very active on the waiver wire and trading block. It’s also really interesting to see how people run their team in a dynasty league like this as opposed to a single-season league. And let me tell you- the draft is VERY different.

I wanted to show you my team and draft results and get into why I went with each pick, where the draft was going, and maybe give you some tips and insight as you approach your own fantasy seasons. First, let’s take a look at my keepers from last year. The way it works is, you get to keep up to 9 players and they take the a draft pick based on their respective rankings. So the free agent pool at draft looks very different.

Here is my team and the draft picks they slotted into: Continue reading Fantasy Baseball Draft Review »
