You’re probably hurtin’ right now. You’re probably thinking nothing could cheer you up. But it’s important to remember that we all fall down. http://youtu.be/u2SAnyvFbUk It’s the picking yourself back up that matters. Sometimes, it just feels like you just can’t get over that hump, like you can’t break that bubble of Chris Johnson’s complete and…… Continue reading If you didn’t make the fantasy football playoffs, this one’s for you
If you lost Jamaal Charles on Sunday, you don’t have a lot of options. He was your first round pick, and unless you play in a very small league, it’s unlikely you have someone else of Charles’ caliber on your roster to pick up the slack. You also aren’t going to find many first-round quality…… Continue reading Jamaal Charles owners: How to replace your stud running back
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?
This week’s top performers weren’t too surprising. A few of them we’ve heard of before, and a few of them have already been consistently working their way towards greatness over the first four weeks of the season. Then, there are the defenses. Matt Forte, Bears RB: 166 yards, 2 TDs, 2 catches for 22 yards…… Continue reading Believe it or not: Brandon Lloyd, Hakeem Nicks Prove They Are Legit and More Top Scores from Week 5
Austin Collie, WR, Colts: 12 catches for 171 yards, 2 TDs Believe It: This was not the stat line Reggie Wayne owners wanted to see, but without Pierre Garcon, Peyton Manning locked onto Collie while Dallas Clark and Reggie Wayne got most of the attention from the Denver defense. I don’t expect Collie to get…… Continue reading Believe it or not: Austin Collie, Peyton Hillis, Lance Moore and More Top Scores from Week 3

I’ve heard people compare him to Chris…… Continue reading Why Jahvid Best is the Best

This…… Continue reading Believe it or not: Arian Foster, Hakeem Nicks and More Top Scorers from Week 1
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
ESPN reports this morning that Brett Favre plans to retire rather than rejoin the Minnesota Vikings. He managed to keep the Vikings on the hook until training camp before finally dropping the hammer. What a team player.
