If you are patrolling the waiver wire this week with tears in your eyes, we know the feeling. Losing your first round draft pick is always painful. Don’t expect to get David Johnson-esque numbers from these options, but the consensus opinion for replacing him seems to be his direct backup, Kerwynn Williams. https://twitter.com/FantasyFools/status/907459830981459974 That said,…… Continue reading Week 2 Pickups: Forgetting David Johnson
Even if Chris Johnson will only have one more good game this season, this is the game to start him. The Jaguars owe us that. And Matt Forte could be in for a big game of his own if Matchups is correct that Trestman will lean on the run to protect a possibly not 100…… Continue reading Week 10 Starts and Sits: Chris Johnson lives! Maybe. Sort of.
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
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
It’s been another ugly week. After there wasn’t much to do on the waiver wire in Week 1 and 2, I was disappointed that we really didn’t get any more talent bubbling up the top for Week 3. I wouldn’t bet an eyebrow on any of these guys. If you didn’t get Marlon Brown last…… Continue reading Week 3 Pickups: Eddie Royal takes the crown
I gave away a victory this weekend, and I blame Antonio Gates. With my tight end, Marcedes Lewis on a bye, I was forced to go to the waiver wire. At first, I tried to grab hot free agent Jacob Tamme, but I was outbid (FAAB league). Next, I tried for Visanthe Shiancoe but missed…… Continue reading On the Waiver Wire: Week 10 Pickups and Shots in the Dark
The pain continues. We lost a lot of good men out there. If you were already struggling to replace Jermichael Finley (like me) or fill the hole left by Dallas Clark (like me), I hope that you weren’t also relying on Tony Romo (again…like me) who is now out for the rest of the fantasy…… Continue reading On the Waiver Wire for Week 8: Matthew Stafford, Ryan Fitzpatrick, and Jon Kitna are the quarterbacks you seek
Week 6 dropped a few gifts into our lap as a result of recent injuries and trades, which comes at a very opportune time in the midst of bye weeks I normally do a little digging on players I list on the waiver wire in order to assess their potential. Sometimes I share a little…… Continue reading On the Waiver Wire: Week 7 Pickups and Who is Danario Alexander?
Get this: ESPN Fantasy Football has Rex Ryan’s favorite Little F-er Danny Woodhead classified as a wide receiver for the entire year because he started the season as a wide receiver on the Jets’ practice squad. I neglected to mention Woodhead in the waiver wire recs this week because he’s on a bye, and well,…… Continue reading That Little F-er Danny Woodhead plays WR on ESPN
Randy Moss returned to the Minnesota Vikings yesterday as the latest victim of the Patriot Way, the “get out while we can still get draft picks for you” way. After all, there is no “pay” in Patriot…err, wait, that doesn’t seem right. While there is no “I” in team, there are two in Belichick. Above all,…… Continue reading What Randy Moss trade to Minnesota means for fantasy owners, a collection of thoughts from around the Web
