Each week, “Believe it or not” highlights those fantasy football studs (or mistakes) who score over 20 points in ESPN standard scoring and whether we can trust them to ever do it again. The Kansas City Chiefs might have contributed more this week to the fantasy football community than they will all year, but it…… Continue reading Believe it or not: Kevin Kolb, Matt Cassel teammates benefit and More Scoring Leaders from Week 6
This week changed my opinions about a few of the guys I recommended last week (Torain, Benn), and we had some breaking news with Marshawn Lynch’s move to Seattle. I think I’m more excited that all the rumors about Lynch being traded or not being traded will stop. If you’re looking to fill some empty…… Continue reading On the Wire for Week 5 Pickups: Ryan Torain time, remember Blount, Tiquan Underwood, and the West Coast’s newest resident Marshawn Lynch
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
Congratulations on escaping from that rock you’ve been trapped under for all those long months since the Super Bowl. Hopefully, you weren’t trapped in this thing. After you get a good, warm meal inside of you, I’m sure you’ll be wondering what happened in the world since you departed. Or if you, like me, took…… Continue reading Top 15 Fantasy Football Storylines You Missed Since the Super Bowl
It’s once again a weak waiver wire week, but you’ll have to deal with it. By now, your team should be well-equipped to weather the playoff storm. If not, how did you make it this far? Bribes? Trickery? Bribery and trickery? If you’re looking for talent, the FF Librarian is holding it down with plenty…… Continue reading On the Wire: Playoff Week 15 Pickups to Block From Your Opponents (If You Dare)
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
It’s easy to pick on Brian Westbrook, but his surprise “inactivity” this week probably caught many fantasy owners off-guard. It caught me off-guard. All indications were that he would take the field, but some headaches on Friday conspired to keep him from playing. That also prevented me from starting LeSean McCoy over Jamaal Charles. Would…… Continue reading Foolish Thoughts: California Dreams and NFL at 10
Updated: Wed, Nov. 11. I’ve been in California this week at a conference. I don’t know how these people handle football starting at 10 a.m. on Sundays. It’s just plain weird. But the important thing here is that I haven’t had Internet all week. Sorry, hotel, but I am not going to pay a limb…… Continue reading On the Wire: Week 10 Pickups, Slim Pickings but Quick Mobile Picks
http://youtu.be/fLes1MufRf8 You don’t want to be Mr. Worry. For one, that wrinkled forehead will be stuck that way forever. And two, he carries a purse. So back down from that ledge there. Pause a second before you put on that lipstick and trace over the names of your fantasy studs turned duds. They turned on…… Continue reading Week 3 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders: Why worry?
Ah, that was nice, wasn’t it? The start of the NFL season is just like taking a hot shower, and Week 1 is when someone flushes the toilet to give you that frigid, but refreshing, blast of unbearably cold water. Once you’ve recovered from the shock, it’s lovely, just lovely. This week, we’re looking for…… Continue reading Week 2 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders: And who plays the Lions this week again?
