Shonn Greene. SHONN “Couldn’t get 5 yards if you spotted him 10” GREENE. When it comes to fantasy football, Shonn Greene is a ruiner. When you hand him the ball, he ruins any chance for a first down. But when you hand him the ball against the Colts, he ruins my week. Greene did, of…… Continue reading Felix Jones-ing for Week 7 Pickups
I didn’t realize how desperate Kevin was to take home a championship, but I guess when we last saw him, he was swimming at a flaming Viking funeral boat full of league memorabilia, including the Shiva. In hindsight, we should have seen this coming. Trading away his position as commissioner and naming rights to your…… Continue reading The League S04E01: Training Camp brings Chalupa Batman into the world [Season 4 Premiere]

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?
There was actually a mock draft that I participated in last week besides the one that I let the ESPN autodraft bot destroy by filling the bench with quarterbacks.

Deadspin’s Rick Chandler exposed this devil-spawn offense to the jaw-dropping masses this summer — the A-11, two quarterbacks in the backfield causing chaos for opposing defenses.
