You know what’s worse than byes? Injuries. And we got a bunch of them against this week with owners losing Julio Jones and Owen Daniels. Jones obviously hurts the most as a highly drafted WR1. There are a few options to replace him, but…it just won’t be the same, you know? Matchups gets things started…… Continue reading Week 6 Starts and Sits: Anything nice to say about Chris Johnson?
As things go from sad to sadder this week, we enter into the bye week madness. Matchups has you covered with a wealth on in-depth advice on how things will play out Sunday. As Keepers explains this week, start your Cowboys versus the Chargers, and the Chiefs D. Looking at doing some trades to escape…… Continue reading Week 4 Starts: Please Pass, Pryor
Let me preface this pickups post by noting that no one has jumped out a must add in Week 1. We had some very impressive performances, some disappointing ones, and a crazy Monday night, but most of the explosive pickups like tight ends Jordan Cameron and Jared Cook were drafted. And those leagues that left…… Continue reading Week 2 Pickups: Spend not, want not
If we picked the winner of Super Bowl XLVII based on Facebook interaction, the Dallas Cowboys would take home the Lombardi Trophy. According to research done by Social Fresh, America’s Team was the most liked, but Steelers fans were the most vocal. Unfortunately, neither team gets a shot at the title this year. But if…… Continue reading Cowboys get likes, Steelers get loud, but 49ers Facebook-ed on top for Super Bowl XLVII [Infographic]
I didn’t realize how desperate Kevin was to take home a championship, but I guess when we last saw him, he was swimming at a flaming Viking funeral boat full of league memorabilia, including the Shiva. In hindsight, we should have seen this coming. Trading away his position as commissioner and naming rights to your…… Continue reading The League S04E01: Training Camp brings Chalupa Batman into the world [Season 4 Premiere]
After 8 catches, 114 yards, and 2 touchdowns against the Giants, you might be rushing out to claim Kevin Ogletree on the waiver wire as this year’s Laurent Robinson. Not so fast. http://twitter.com/FantasyBuddha/status/243564595195834369 While he’s certainly proven he can perform when called upon, Ogletree’s been on the Cowboys’ roster long enough and been named an…… Continue reading Is Dallas Cowboys WR Kevin Ogletree 2012’s Laurent Robinson?

Their conversation touches on early hype…… Continue reading Brandon Lloyd, Fred Davis, and The 2012 Quarterback Craze
The NFL makes no sense this year. Call it parity. Call it “le suck.” Call it whatever you want. Several of the teams we thought would be fantasy powerhouses are not (Cowboys, Chargers, Patriots) while many of the teams we wrote off as bad bets for fantasy are putting up good numbers (Browns, Rams, Bills).…… Continue reading Believe it or not: Darren McFadden, Kenny Britt, Buffalo Bills blow up as Week 7 Scoring Leaders
It’s insanity. That’s what fantasy football is when it comes to the playoffs. Jonathan Stewart and Jerome Harrison become huge fantasy steals in the final two games, and studs that you’ve depending on all season like Drew Brees and Aaron Rodgers clam up and shut down early, even in blowout wins. At least Chris Johnson…… Continue reading Foolish Thoughts on 2009 Season: So why didn’t we all draft Chris Johnson?
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
