It’s been a rough two weeks. In what I would call my “main league” I’ve watched what I felt was a playoff contender fall apart in the last three weeks, and those losses are going to cost me a chance to compete in the playoffs this year. It’s really more painful to be so close…and…… Continue reading Week 12 Pickups: Grumble, grumble, disappoint
Corny title. Check. It’s never fun when you lose your stud quarterback — or any stud for that matter — this close to the playoffs. It hurts. But those unfortunate enough to lose Aaron Rodgers to injury can take solace in the wealth of quarterback options that have emerged to take his place. If you…… Continue reading Week 10 Fantasy Football Pickups: Replace Your Quarterback? Rodgers That.
You might be asking yourself who Marvin Jones is. I’ll tell you. He’s probably the guy who had the best game of his season (and possibly career) in Week 8. On to pickups… Don’t forget to check back on Week 8 and Week 7 pickups to make sure they aren’t still floating around out there.…… Continue reading Week 9 Pickups: Marvin Jones-ing for the Playoffs
Week 7 showed us that those with opportunity can produce. Jarrett Boykin filled in more than admirably for James Jones and Randall Cobb. Harry Douglas made the most of his opportunity to be the Falcons No. 1 wideout. But to top that off, we got a bunch of new injuries to send us scrambling to…… Continue reading Week 8 Pickups: Harry Douglas, Jarrett Boykin, and the attack of the injury fill-ins
We didn’t discover many new talents this week, but injuries continue to open doors. And you may have a second chance to go after the ones we identified last week. There are also plenty of midseason stashes that you should start hoarding on your benches at this point in the season. Who would I go…… Continue reading Week 7 Pickups: Were we Foles-ish not to pick them up last week?
Forgive me for the punny title. I didn’t get a lot of sleep this weekend, and I think I’m still operating on Oakland time. But that said…don’t you want four time slots of NFL football EVERY Sunday? Personally, I loved being able to go straight into another one after Sunday Night Football wrapped up, even…… Continue reading Week 6 Pickups: Are you Keenan on these Chargers?
Yes, yes. We never got to pickups this week. But if it’s any consolation, we didn’t have much to work with. Danny Woodhead is stashed in many a league and has been mentioned previously. Rashad Jennings isn’t exactly exciting. Zac Stacy makes for a sneaky play or stash this week as he could potentially get…… Continue reading Week 5 Starts and Sneaky Pickups
We’re late with our pickups this week. I’m on a bit of a vacation, and travel interfered. But that said, there isn’t and/or wasn’t much to get excited about this week on the waiver wire. Josh Gordon is the darling of Week 3, but I have to assume he’s been stashed on someone’s bench since…… Continue reading Week 4 Pickups: Belated Bilal
It’s been another ugly week. After there wasn’t much to do on the waiver wire in Week 1 and 2, I was disappointed that we really didn’t get any more talent bubbling up the top for Week 3. I wouldn’t bet an eyebrow on any of these guys. If you didn’t get Marlon Brown last…… Continue reading Week 3 Pickups: Eddie Royal takes the crown
Let me preface this pickups post by noting that no one has jumped out a must add in Week 1. We had some very impressive performances, some disappointing ones, and a crazy Monday night, but most of the explosive pickups like tight ends Jordan Cameron and Jared Cook were drafted. And those leagues that left…… Continue reading Week 2 Pickups: Spend not, want not
