I wanted to make a switch this past weekend at defense to sub in the New Orleans Saints D/ST for the Green Bay Packers D/ST. Considering they had the same bye week and with some doubt in the Saints’ newly discovered fantasy worthiness, I was slow to make that change. I thought the Packers D/ST…… Continue reading On the Wire: Week 5 Pickups, Drops and Bye Week Filler

Foolish Thoughts: Are you ready for some football?
The final weekend of the preseason might be the worst week as an NFL fan. Starters play only a few minutes while coaches get a look at the rest of the depth chart to make final cuts, and we all know that in just one more week the games will actually mean something. While the…… Continue reading Foolish Thoughts: Are you ready for some football?
Guest Post: Three RBBCs to Target in Fantasy Football Drafts
This second guest post comes to us all the way across the pond from Ross Mooring of Never Kick a Gift Horse in the Teeth. This article is a follow up to his first guest post on three RBBCs to avoid in your drafts this season. It’s now time to look at the running-back-by-committees (RBBC)…… Continue reading Guest Post: Three RBBCs to Target in Fantasy Football Drafts
Fantasy Draft Day Pick or Pass: Top 24 Running Backs by ADP
Many a fantasy football site will give you rankings. Most of the time, that’s enough for you to make your decisions when drafting a fantasy team, but I like to add a little depth to my rankings by incorporating the “players to avoid” tag. You see, not every player is desirable, even if they are…… Continue reading Fantasy Draft Day Pick or Pass: Top 24 Running Backs by ADP
On the Wire: Week 16 Pickups and Playoff One-offs
If you’re still playing fantasy football, your roster should be locked up pretty tight. Why are you even reading this article? For the sake of those of you with injuries and/or in need of a weekly sub to blow away your heavily favored opponent, I guess I can still give you a few names that…… Continue reading On the Wire: Week 16 Pickups and Playoff One-offs
Week 9 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders
One of my fantasy football teams has done remarkably well through the first half of the season. After starting 5-0, I traded away some of my starters for underperforming stars that I believed would lead me to victory in the second half. As of this week, I have assembled what I would call the Pro…… Continue reading Week 9 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders
Foolish Thoughts on Week 5: And another three bite the dust?
These sudden, mysterious and largely unreported injuries have got to stop. Last week, Carson Palmer was a late scratch. This week, the victim was Matt Schaub, who was hit by a virus the night before the game. I normally set lineups Saturday night and then let them run, but this sudden injury plague makes me…… Continue reading Foolish Thoughts on Week 5: And another three bite the dust?
Week 5 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders
I am not sure who won the VP debate last night. Both political parties seem to believe their candidate stepped up to the plate. The NFL is still pretty split in making a decision this election year. I do know that Al Davis likes Sarah Palin — mostly because he believes she’s youthful and has…… Continue reading Week 5 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders
Foolish Thoughts on Week 4: Postgame reactions to the week that fantasy forgot
Where did that Carson Palmer injury come from on Sunday morning? I lucked out played against him this week, but I didn’t hear a word about it until I saw him putting up zero points heading into halftime. Enough with the quiet injuries already. I’m still shocked there was an Ocho Cinco sighting without Palmer…… Continue reading Foolish Thoughts on Week 4: Postgame reactions to the week that fantasy forgot
Week 3 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders
Obviously, things change in fantasy football. There’s no Tom Brady, and therefore, no Randy Moss. Offenses in Seattle, Cincinnati and Cleveland are in shambles. Jacksonville keeps turning it over, and the Denver Broncos might have the most explosive offense of 2008. Shanny, we knew you had it in you. I won’t even say that I…… Continue reading Week 3 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders
