Week 2 gives us a little more clarity, but a number of poor showings have us concerned. I wouldn’t go betting an eyebrow on the outcome of any of your fantasy performances. My big roster question comes down to whether I can trust T.Y. Hilton to get involved this week. Despite all the matchup love…… Continue reading Week 2 Starts: What do we know now?

Believe it or not, Peyton Hillis is the Juggernaut and More Scoring Leaders from Week 12
I believe it was Andrew Garda who started the #Juggernaut campaign for the Peyton Hillis’ nickname. Once again, it held true this week as Hillis ran over the Panthers for three touchdowns in brutal fashion. Nothing stops that guy. Nothing. The proof of how great a nickname this is for Hillis is in the Wikipedia:…… Continue reading Believe it or not, Peyton Hillis is the Juggernaut and More Scoring Leaders from Week 12
Believe it or not, Scoring Leaders for Week 11: If you don’t have multiples, you’re just not trying hard enough
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
Believe it or not: Scoring Leaders from Week 10: Congrats on your win, Michael Vick owners
What’s this? A blast from your past? Well, since we didn’t get a chance to get to the top scores from Week 10, we’re giving it to you now. Maybe watching your team march towards victory in Week 11 will dull the pain of these performances that killed you just seven days ago. Michael Vick,…… Continue reading Believe it or not: Scoring Leaders from Week 10: Congrats on your win, Michael Vick owners
On the Waiver Wire: Remaining Week 11 Pickups, Fantasy Football Playoff Sleepers, Stashes
It’s getting to be that time when you just have to roll with what you’ve got, and there’s not much talent left on the waiver wire. So I took a few extra hours this week to peruse all the latest and greatest analysis to recommend just a few guys who I think should be owned…… Continue reading On the Waiver Wire: Remaining Week 11 Pickups, Fantasy Football Playoff Sleepers, Stashes
On the Wire: Week 13 Pickups, Vince Young, Fred Jackson, and Playoff Depth
Let’s not play games. I know you’re most likely looking for just one or two players to complete your fantasy football playoff dynasty before Week 13 or ignoring most of the free agents for a chance to ride out the season while looking nonchalant. Chicks dig nonchalant. While it’s always admirable to fight to the…… Continue reading On the Wire: Week 13 Pickups, Vince Young, Fred Jackson, and Playoff Depth
On the Wire: Week 12 Pickups, Playoff Prep, and Matt Leinart
Is there anything sadder than two coaches from the worst teams in the league arguing about who cheated? There are sad clown faces, and then there are SAD CLOWN FACES, people. I’m pretty sure half the NFL wishes that this game wasn’t even televised. It might fool some people into believing that the Browns and…… Continue reading On the Wire: Week 12 Pickups, Playoff Prep, and Matt Leinart
On the Wire: Week 9 Pickups and Must-Claims
There’s nothing glamorous about pickups at this point in the season. You’re either struggling to find meaning in your season after falling desperately behind the rest of the teams in your league or fortifying and defending your team by building a stronger bench with these free agents. But the picks are especially un-sexy this week.…… Continue reading On the Wire: Week 9 Pickups and Must-Claims
A Fool and His Money – Week 4
Bengals (-5.5) over BROWNS The Bengals beat the Packers and Steelers in back-to-back games. The Browns finally benched Ms. Quinn, but Derek Anderson somehow managed to play worse in his second half debut. I have to imagine it’s tough for anybody to like the Browns in this one. Lions (+10) over BEARS The first step…… Continue reading A Fool and His Money – Week 4
Week 4 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders: Rookie of the Year?
Chadam of contributing writer to Fantasy Football Fools fame has this theory about Chad Pennington that he asked me to share. He says they broke Pennington’s shoulder on purpose so that he can have surgery and come back next season like Rookie of the Year with a cannon that can throw 70-yard bombs. Maybe he’s…… Continue reading Week 4 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders: Rookie of the Year?
