I really hope that the scoring change on Kurt Warner’s touchdown pass to Anquan Boldin didn’t burn you. That has to be the worst kind of pain in the world. It’s exciting to pull out your semifinal game by just a few points, and it’s exciting to have a chance at the championship. Having that…… Continue reading Week 16 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders: All the marbles? But can’t I just keep at least one?
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
So you’re prepping your team for the final push, but you’re worried you need a couple more warm bodies? Well, that’s not a problem. That’s what a fantasy football roundtable is for. This week’s Fourth & 1 Debate topic came from Hatty Waiver Wire Guru. He asked: Waivers are about to close in some leagues…… Continue reading Fourth & 1 Debate: Waiver wire stashes for the fantasy playoffs
Ah, the sadness comes in larger puddles of tears every week as we approach the fantasy playoffs. That first-round pick sure screwed you, didn’t he? But how, oh how, do you keep it from happening again next year? (Like it always does?) Last week’s fantasy football roundtable covered that and covered it well. The question:…… Continue reading Fourth & 1 Debate: How to avoid fantasy disappointments next season
Last week’s question for the Fourth & 1 Debate was an interesting one from Eric Stashin of Rotoprofessor, and since I didn’t get a chance to share it last week, it’s worth sharing this week before our second Thursday Night Football game of the season. The question: What adjustments do you make to your fantasy…… Continue reading Fourth & 1 Debate: Strategy adjustments for Thursday Night Football
I watched Any Given Sunday last night. Twice. No matter how many times you watch that movie, it makes you want to run through a wall, and then a pack of linebackers, followed by another wall. Every. Time. I didn’t even need to drink coffee this morning. I’d already run out of walls. (Okay, that’s…… Continue reading Week 9 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders: Any Given Sunday
At this point in the season, you might be more concerned with getting to the playoffs than succeeding once you get there. That’s okay. Take it one week at a time. I’ll wait… But if you have the true heart of a champion, some good luck, and if you’ve been doing your research, you’ve probably…… Continue reading Fourth & 1 Debate: Nine Moves to Make for the Fantasy Football Playoffs
This week’s Fourth & 1 Debate question for the fantasy football roundtable came from Smitty at Fantasy Football Xtreme. He asked “Who is your biggest buy-low candidate for Weeks 8 through 16?” My pick? Greg Jennings. He’s been a minor piece of the Green Bay offense thus far, and many of Jennings’ owners could probably…… Continue reading Fourth & 1 Debate: ‘Buy low’ candidates for the second half
Last week’s Fourth & 1 fantasy football roundtable debate asked, “Which two players are you stashing for the second half? Why?” I selected LeSean McCoy and Mike Bell as my stashes for the reasons outlined below in my entry for the roundtable. After seeing Brian Westbrook suffer a concussion in Monday Night Football tonight, I…… Continue reading Fourth & 1 Debate: Two running backs worth stashing
In the most recent Fourth & 1 fantasy football roundtable debate, we tackle what players have lost the most keeper value this season besides LaDainian Tomlinson. I chose to single out Darren McFadden. Despite the Oakland Raiders’ miraculous victory over the Philadelphia Eagles, who really beat themselves in this weekend’s upset, McFadden is on one…… Continue reading Shameless Plugging: Keeper no more?
