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
This week’s waiver wire is a great reminder that, if your roster needed help, it might have been better to make moves last week. Choices are limited if you didn’t stash, but, if your league is slow to adapt, perhaps you’ll find some of last week’s gems or this week’s leftovers available. Though Latavius Murray…… Continue reading Week 6 Pickups: Adrian Peterson is for the birds
Week 2 wasn’t quite as exciting for pickup hunting as Week 1, but, with two weeks down, we have a little more clarity on how valuable these free agents could be for your team this season. Looking back on last week’s list, Javorius “Buck” Allen appears to be the top of the class. His role…… Continue reading Week 3 Pickups: Carson Carson Carson Carson Carson Chameleon
We hit on a few long-term investments at wide receiver last week. With news breaking and injuries healing up, it’s time to talk about stashing running backs this week, if you can get to them first on the wire. Adrian Peterson plead “no contest” to a lesser charge this week and got one step closer to…… Continue reading Week 10 Pickups: RB Reload, Bet the Sanchize
SB Nation’s War Room gives some great advice: “Never bet against Adrian Peterson.” Also, “BBQ and Andy Reid are a match made in heaven.” I can’t say I agree with the Doug Martin hate. I’m a full believer in that department, and I love him even more when you look at the schedule he faces…… Continue reading SB Nation’s Fantasy Draft Guide 2013 advises “Never bet against Adrian Peterson”

Here’s some last-minute start and sit advice as you put lineups together for Week 3. Matt Ufford at SBNation takes some starting shots. Did he say Andy Dalton? http://youtu.be/ySmtwQslzlQ I do agree on Saints and Chiefs…and Matt Cassel. Why do you own Matt Cassel? And Cecil Lammey tells you why to sit Adrian Peterson. http://youtu.be/z27xwjfhLfY…… Continue reading Why do you still own Matt Cassel?
I can’t be certain that I covered all of this week’s best waiver wire grabs because, to be honest, after Adrian Peterson went down and rode out of the stadium on a cart, I went into shock and then into a hysterical state from which I am only now emerging. Is Twilight still a thing?…… Continue reading This Kevin Smith is not Too Fat to Fly in Week 12 Pickups
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?
I hate handcuffing. I always feel like handcuffs are a waste of a roster spot, and I’d rather have a starting running back from another team than carry a guy who doesn’t play just in case my starter goes down. The backups are rarely as good or as big a part of the offense as…… Continue reading On the Waiver Wire: Brian Westbrook LIVES, Week 13 Pickups, and a Massive Collection of Advice to Get Your Team Right for the Fantasy Football Playoffs
