There are many ways to predict the outcome of an NFL game. Some sites bring out the animal mascots or flip coins. Some dig through the numbers. Some claim to be gut-instinct experts. So when we looked at how we might predict the winner of this year’s Super Bowl, we thought why not look to…… Continue reading Astrological Super Bowl Predictions: Who’s Dancing in the Bayou?
I’d like to try something a little different here at Fantasy Football Fools. I give you a lot of advice, good and bad, throughout the season, but what about all the anger management we have to endure? Injuries. Benchings. When your team leaves you hanging Sunday, there’s got to be some good way to vent.…… Continue reading Monday Morning Therapy: Steven Jackson’s groin hates fantasy football
This week was not a good week to bench Jay Cutler or Jahvid Best. I have Jay Cutler as my QB1 in two leagues, but I chose to bench him in one of the two to “play it safe” with Favre. I hate it when I play it safe. I hate it even more when…… Continue reading Believe it or not: Jahvid “THE” Best, Jason Snelling, LeSean McCoy, Jay Cutler and More Top Scorers from Week 2
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
The playoffs are truly fickle. Just like your high school girlfriend (well, if you had a girlfriend), they tire of you after about two weeks. If you lost in Week 14, you can probably identify a few names on your new hate list, updated daily while you rub lipstick on your face and cry, from…… Continue reading The Team That Knocked You Out of the Playoffs in Week 14
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
Baseball stole our Sunday Night Football. How is that fair? Give it back, World Series. I demand it. I’m fine with baseball as long as I don’t have to sit through an entire game. In my opinion, it should be played in highlight form, jumping to the major parts and leaving out all the rest.…… Continue reading Foolish Thoughts: Marc Bulger and Sunday Night Sadness
In a fantasy football group I participate in each week, Fantasy Football Fanatics on LinkedIn, I recommended going with Beanie Wells in a flex spot over Andre Johnson this week. Am I crazy or is this smart strategy? I’m going with the numbers here. My argument for going with Beanie: There is definitely a huge…… Continue reading Starting Beanie Wells over Andre Johnson: Smart Play or Crazy Talk?
At some point, we have to stop framing recommendations to start LaDainian Tomlinson with stats from his past performances. “For his career, L.T. averages 100+ yards and bazillion touchdowns against (fill in the blank).” No crap. L.T. was a dominant fantasy force up until last season, but how much suck did L.T. average just last…… Continue reading Week 8 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders: L.T. is a zombie
I got stuck watching the New England Patriots abuse the Tampa Bay Buccaneers across the pond in London during the early games. I thought we sent this game overseas so that no one here would have to watch it? While the action was riveting, oh, so riveting, I found myself checking my fantasy football scores…… Continue reading Foolish Thoughts: Magical phone refresh voodoo makes Vernon Davis score touchdowns
