No one likes to see a top quarterback injured, especially not the consensus No. 1 fantasy quarterback. Unfortunately, we find ourselves in that position this week. Before the season, a team with both Aaron Rodgers and David Johnson seemed like a juggernaut. Now, that owner would be looking to save their season. It’s late in…… Continue reading Week 7 Pickups: Replacing Aaron Rodgers
Even if Chris Johnson will only have one more good game this season, this is the game to start him. The Jaguars owe us that. And Matt Forte could be in for a big game of his own if Matchups is correct that Trestman will lean on the run to protect a possibly not 100…… Continue reading Week 10 Starts and Sits: Chris Johnson lives! Maybe. Sort of.
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.
Footballguys' Sigmund Bloom explained his quarterback tiers last month, and while the tiers themselves may not come as a surprise, the chunks Bloom creates with his tiers clearly show how deep the quarterback position is this year. Even if you choose to pass on top options and wait until the very late rounds to consider… Continue reading Quarterbacks aplenty in 2013
ESPN’s Eric Karabell knocks drafting Aaron Rodgers, Darren McFadden, DeMarco Murray, Greg Jennings, Rob Gronkowski, and Danny Amendola at their current average draft positions. http://youtu.be/rVE7D5CjV3Y Karabell always seems to be a running back (RB-RB) traditionalist, so his dislike of Aaron Rodgers as a first round pick and advising against injury-prone backs doesn’t surprise me. On…… Continue reading Who are you overdrafting in 2013?
I pity the fool that doesn’t learn from his past mistakes, and 2011 broke a few of the fantasy football molds. No Peyton Manning. The Texans made the playoffs. Rex Grossman is good? Okay…for a few weeks, he was good. And let’s not forget Reggie Bush was a feature back, and Cam Newton was a…… Continue reading Takeaways from the 2011 Fantasy Football Season
http://youtu.be/fjL-4nwnkkk Chris Johnson. Steven Jackson. Adrian Peterson. THE COLTS! Why can’t we have nice things?!? Green Bay is an unstoppable force of fantasy football goodness. I’m picking up the Packers’ ball boy on the waiver wire this week, and I fully expect him to get at least 10 touchdowns this season. But the Saints defense…… Continue reading Overreaction Monday: Why Did I Draft Chris Johnson?
Your fantasy studs only scored once? Well, that’s just child’s play. The real studs scored twice or more on Sunday, and they should easily do the same a time or two before the fantasy football playoffs are over. Start ’em if you got ’em. Ben Roethlisberger, QB, Steelers: 275 passing yards and 3 TDs, 55…… Continue reading Believe it or not, Scoring Leaders for Week 11: If you don’t have multiples, you’re just not trying hard enough
Each week, “Believe it or not” highlights those fantasy football studs (or mistakes) who score over 20 points in ESPN standard scoring and whether we can trust them to ever do it again. The Kansas City Chiefs might have contributed more this week to the fantasy football community than they will all year, but it…… Continue reading Believe it or not: Kevin Kolb, Matt Cassel teammates benefit and More Scoring Leaders from Week 6
So Deion Branch is now a Patriot? That’s exciting for Bill Belichick and all — that man knows how to swing a three-way trade while moving up in the draft. But I don’t think the trade changes Branch’s fantasy value much. Branch wasn’t that useful as a Seahawk, and they are hurting for playmakers. Tom…… Continue reading On the Wire: Week 6 Waiver Wire Pickups to fix your Jermichael Finley, Mark Clayton and Aaron Rodgers woes
