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?
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
Here’s a look from Sports Data Hub at the top fantasy performers at each position as of the beginning of December. [Update: Link no longer available] We all wish we could go back to the draft and change something, whether we want to draft Miles Austin or not draft Matt Forte, but looking at the…… Continue reading And while you’re kicking yourself for not drafting these guys in the first place
I thought we’d do things a little differently this week. By this point, I expect that most of you know who you are starting and sitting during these critical weeks of the fantasy playoffs. As such, I don’t think you’ll need as much help deciding which players to start and sit. Trust is as important…… Continue reading Week 14 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders: You Know Where This is Going
When things get back to normal, they also have to get weird. In the same week that Drew Brees blows apart the Giants like they read their defensive playbook to him as a bedtime story, Tom Brady returns to dominance in a frozen tundra that kept the Titans quarterbacks, both of them, for throwing for…… Continue reading Foolish Thoughts: Eagles pigeon-holed, Titans Patrionized and Saints crush Giants
The NFL should really give all the bad teams the same bye week. Just wait until all the worst teams have shown what they are made of, take the bottom half of the league and give them a week off to heal their wounds. Hey, we could even give the Rams a whole season off.…… Continue reading Foolish Thoughts: Terrible throwbacks and games to throw back
I watched the UFL game last night, and it wasn’t even like the accidentally-left-it-on-that-channel kind of watch. I actually watched it. It was far more interesting than watching Missouri spank Nebraska in the rain. J.P. Losman led the Las Vegas Locomotives, an engine of destruction, I’m told, to a come-from-behind victory against the California Redwoods,…… Continue reading Week 5 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders: Pretty please, Braylon. Pretty Please.
http://youtu.be/cDAq5tyfk9E Oh, Week 1, you cruel, cruel mistress. Just when we think we have it all figured out, the perfect team, the perfect season, you bring us back to reality. Yes, this week we had football — real NFL football. Football that counted! But we also saw how the offseason, that tricky devil that fills…… Continue reading Foolish Thoughts: They aren’t who we thought they were
Brian Westbrook convinced the world that a smaller, shifty back could make it work in the NFL. In recent years, he’s become a fantasy points factory, churning out production each season, but he’s also never been one to rely on for all 16 weeks of your fantasy season. With Westbrook’s production come injuries. Someone who…… Continue reading Injury Concerns: Are Reggie Bush and Brian Westbrook worth your draft pick?
We’ve analyzed the rankings for running backs, wide receivers and tight ends already this preseason and recommended who you should avoid when it’s your turn to pick. Now, it’s time to take on the quarterback position. Most standard fantasy teams will only need two quarterbacks on the roster, one starter and one backup. What separates…… Continue reading Fantasy Draft Day Pick or Pass: Top 12 Quarterbacks by ADP
