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?
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

The fine young hair models from Fantasy Football Writers with Hair put together a 10-team, 16-round mock draft with a few of the Fanhouse crew, reps…… Continue reading Hair Model Mock Draft 2009: Tweaking the System

After the first couple of picks, which I made as quick reactions since I…… Continue reading Random ESPN Mock Draft: Results May Vary

It’s the debate that began as soon as the Cowboys released Terrell Owens: Where does Tony Romo rank without his prized target in the passing game?
