When it comes to fantasy football draft strategy, I’ve tried almost everything. RB-RB? Of course. Draft a quarterback in the first round? Sure. WR-WR? Most definitely. But all this trial and error has paid off. After hammering out what I think is my best strategy to date last season in the “cutting out the middle…… Continue reading How to Win Your Fantasy Football League on Draft Day – vers. 2010
Yes. So much yes. Don’t get caught up in the hype of this Adrian Peterson vs. Chris Johnson debate. Sure, Chris Johnson had a phenom year. He broke 400 touches in 2009. He may not do that in 2010; in fact, he probably won’t. There’s a good chance he could suffer a setback or injury…… Continue reading Should you draft Chris Johnson at No. 1?
Here’s a look from Sports Data Hub at the top fantasy performers at each position as of the beginning of December. [Update: Link no longer available] We all wish we could go back to the draft and change something, whether we want to draft Miles Austin or not draft Matt Forte, but looking at the…… Continue reading And while you’re kicking yourself for not drafting these guys in the first place
Sports Data Hub recently investigated the usefulness [SDH no longer has this online] of Vince Young for the rest of the season, but that analysis was optimistically given before his come-from-behind fourth-quarter drive for the win against the Cardinals. Those last-second heroics capped off a fantasy day that had him throwing for almost 400 yards. http://youtu.be/NUU6YSgNMT0…… Continue reading Vince Young: Playoff Pickup or Passable Projections?
As if you needed a two-minute explanation of why you should never trust Ted Ginn Jr. as a fantasy football wideout, here you are. Please cover the eyes of any young children in the room. http://youtu.be/ZYSxJgjjJFc via Pro Football Talk Yeah, it’s really that bad. Do not draft, people. Do not draft. Ginn’s own hands…… Continue reading Ted Ginn: This is why you can’t have nice things
Ah, the sadness comes in larger puddles of tears every week as we approach the fantasy playoffs. That first-round pick sure screwed you, didn’t he? But how, oh how, do you keep it from happening again next year? (Like it always does?) Last week’s fantasy football roundtable covered that and covered it well. The question:…… Continue reading Fourth & 1 Debate: How to avoid fantasy disappointments next season
Last week’s question for the Fourth & 1 Debate was an interesting one from Eric Stashin of Rotoprofessor, and since I didn’t get a chance to share it last week, it’s worth sharing this week before our second Thursday Night Football game of the season. The question: What adjustments do you make to your fantasy…… Continue reading Fourth & 1 Debate: Strategy adjustments for Thursday Night Football
At this point in the season, you might be more concerned with getting to the playoffs than succeeding once you get there. That’s okay. Take it one week at a time. I’ll wait… But if you have the true heart of a champion, some good luck, and if you’ve been doing your research, you’ve probably…… Continue reading Fourth & 1 Debate: Nine Moves to Make for the Fantasy Football Playoffs
This week’s Fourth & 1 Debate question for the fantasy football roundtable came from Smitty at Fantasy Football Xtreme. He asked “Who is your biggest buy-low candidate for Weeks 8 through 16?” My pick? Greg Jennings. He’s been a minor piece of the Green Bay offense thus far, and many of Jennings’ owners could probably…… Continue reading Fourth & 1 Debate: ‘Buy low’ candidates for the second half
Last week’s Fourth & 1 fantasy football roundtable debate asked, “Which two players are you stashing for the second half? Why?” I selected LeSean McCoy and Mike Bell as my stashes for the reasons outlined below in my entry for the roundtable. After seeing Brian Westbrook suffer a concussion in Monday Night Football tonight, I…… Continue reading Fourth & 1 Debate: Two running backs worth stashing
