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.
Footballguys' Sigmund Bloom explained his quarterback tiers last month, and while the tiers themselves may not come as a surprise, the chunks Bloom creates with his tiers clearly show how deep the quarterback position is this year. Even if you choose to pass on top options and wait until the very late rounds to consider… Continue reading Quarterbacks aplenty in 2013
So this happened. In case you somehow haven’t heard already, the replacement refs blew the call at the end of Monday Night Football by awarding a touchdown to Golden Tate in place of a Green Bay interception. Even Jon Gruden’s disgusted. The play in question (or is it still in question?), courtesy of KSK: http://youtu.be/x-qiGyB6HzE…… Continue reading Monday Night Football Golden Tainted by Replacement Refs, Twitter Explodes and NFL Players React
Your fantasy studs only scored once? Well, that’s just child’s play. The real studs scored twice or more on Sunday, and they should easily do the same a time or two before the fantasy football playoffs are over. Start ’em if you got ’em. Ben Roethlisberger, QB, Steelers: 275 passing yards and 3 TDs, 55…… Continue reading Believe it or not, Scoring Leaders for Week 11: If you don’t have multiples, you’re just not trying hard enough
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.

Austin Collie, WR, Colts: 12 catches for 171 yards, 2 TDs Believe It: This was not the stat line Reggie Wayne owners wanted to see, but without Pierre Garcon, Peyton Manning locked onto Collie while Dallas Clark and Reggie Wayne got most of the attention from the Denver defense. I don’t expect Collie to get…… Continue reading Believe it or not: Austin Collie, Peyton Hillis, Lance Moore and More Top Scores from Week 3
http://youtu.be/Ue9L9oJWxwQ In this business, nothing goes as planned. If it did, why would be play?

The Vikings hoped to avenge their playoff loss to the Super Bowl Champion Saints on the NFL’s biggest Week 1…… Continue reading Brett Favre’s 2010 Vikings: You aren’t who we thought you were, yet
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
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?
It’s championship week. There’s not time for taking chances, looking for sleepers, or playing around with your roster. You know who your studs are, but these select few players could sub in if you have an absolute beast of a opponent, and if you are daring enough to bench a player you’ve trusted to get…… Continue reading On the Wire: Week 16 Pickups That You Certainly Don’t Need This Week
