We should have listened to Cecil Lammey last week. His two big waiver wire suggestions are in the mix in a much bigger way in Week 11. http://youtu.be/wFhpttgp_I0 I’m keeping the same format as we’ve been doing the last two weeks. Feel free to see those past posts for more players you might have missed…… Continue reading Week 11 Pickups make Nick Foles of us all

Darren McFadden owners reaching for Marcel Reece in Week 10 Pickups
I was really disappointed in the election results. I thought we were all going to write in Doug Martin, you guys! I was looking forward to finally having a cool nickname for the POTUS like Muscle Hamster. But alas, I guess you guys care about the economy and social issues beyond just fantasy football wins.…… Continue reading Darren McFadden owners reaching for Marcel Reece in Week 10 Pickups
How to Win Your Fantasy Football League on Draft Day – vers. 2010
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
Week 16 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders: All the marbles? But can’t I just keep at least one?
I really hope that the scoring change on Kurt Warner’s touchdown pass to Anquan Boldin didn’t burn you. That has to be the worst kind of pain in the world. It’s exciting to pull out your semifinal game by just a few points, and it’s exciting to have a chance at the championship. Having that…… Continue reading Week 16 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders: All the marbles? But can’t I just keep at least one?

Thanksgiving is a time for giving thanks. You should pause for a moment and think of all the players you have to thank for getting you where your fantasy team is today.

On the Wire: Week 12 Pickups, Playoff Prep, and Matt Leinart
Is there anything sadder than two coaches from the worst teams in the league arguing about who cheated? There are sad clown faces, and then there are SAD CLOWN FACES, people. I’m pretty sure half the NFL wishes that this game wasn’t even televised. It might fool some people into believing that the Browns and…… Continue reading On the Wire: Week 12 Pickups, Playoff Prep, and Matt Leinart
Foolish Thoughts: Forsett, Snelling, Scott, and McCoy offer instant gratification
When one of your fantasy football studs gets injured, fantasy owners usually face a tough decision. Should you go get that backup, the one who hasn’t seen more than five touches in any game this year? Or should you just find another running back or wide receiver on the waiver wire who’ll get it done…… Continue reading Foolish Thoughts: Forsett, Snelling, Scott, and McCoy offer instant gratification
Week 11 Hot Hand and Cold Shoulders: Twilight Edward vs. Jacob, who ya got?
I know nothing of Twilight. I like it that way, but this debate that’s been raging across all my television channels, including my sports channels, has annoyed me to no end, especially because they used my name. From what I can gather, my namesake Jacob is a werewolf who is loyal and the complete “nice…… Continue reading Week 11 Hot Hand and Cold Shoulders: Twilight Edward vs. Jacob, who ya got?

The Miami Dolphins have placed Ronnie Brown on IR with a foot injury to end his season. Adam Schefter filed the story this afternoon, and ESPN now has the official word.
