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
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
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?
Michael Turner, determined to prove he hasn't lost a step, was pulled over going 97 mph and arrested on charges of drunken driving and speeding hours after his Monday Night Football performance. It doesn't count when you're in a car, dude.
Turner looked slow and unable to break even arm tackles. He isn't a threat to contribute in the passing game, so you're only real hope is that he picks up enough touchdowns to stay fantasy relevant. The Falcons had eight snaps inside the Chiefs' 10 yard line on Sunday and Turner had one carry. If… Continue reading Stick a fork in Michael Turner
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
I don’t get excited about who “won” the draft. I get excited about who I’ll draft for my fantasy football team. When it comes to fantasy relevance, the first round didn’t overwhelm us. The 2011 draft set a record for defensive linemen taken in the first round with 12, but it’s hard to say that…… Continue reading Pondering Christian Ponder: NFL Draft 2011 First Round Fantasy Football Gut Reactions
With two weeks to gauge our free agent stock, we’re now more able to tell who’s rising to the top and who will be free agent fodder all season long. Here are a few frequently available players who caught my eye in the last two weeks. Josh Freeman, QB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers Wow. A quarterback…… Continue reading On the Wire: Mark Clayton, Josh Freeman, and Jason Snelling top ones to grab for Week 3
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
It’s one of the most frustrating occurrences in fantasy football. It’s not a Baltimore fan complaining about the refs or John Carney missing three kicks when just one would have won the fantasy game you lost by a point. No, the most sickening feeling in fantasy football hits you when you start the wrong guys. There’s…… Continue reading Foolish Thoughts: My Beef with Fleaflicker’s Coach Rating
