http://youtu.be/F1fD-Tuqncs Keepers gets the lead off. Reuben Randle is looking like a weekly flex play with the amount of targets he’s getting in the Giants passing game. Sad face for the rec to sit Greg Olsen after he finally got in the end zone Thursday night. Is it bad that I’m starting to come back…… Continue reading Week 8 Starts and Sits: All of the byes! All of them!
http://youtu.be/t0jne_g5IO4 Let’s get this straight — there is no replacing Rob Gronkowski. Contrary to popular offseason belief, he has been on pace to reproduce his miraculous 2011 season, if not exceed it. He’s the head of the pack when it comes to tight ends, and you’re not going to find those kinds of points on…… Continue reading Gronking for Rob Gronkowski Stand-ins: Replacing Gronk for the Playoffs
We should have listened to Cecil Lammey last week. His two big waiver wire suggestions are in the mix in a much bigger way in Week 11. http://youtu.be/wFhpttgp_I0 I’m keeping the same format as we’ve been doing the last two weeks. Feel free to see those past posts for more players you might have missed…… Continue reading Week 11 Pickups make Nick Foles of us all
As we await the Chicago Bears debut tonight in preseason action, I can’t wait to see if their little offseason experiment worked. When it comes to offense, Mike Martz is a kamikaze. His “leap of faith” system is as likely to blow up on a game-by-game basis as it is to succeed. While respected at…… Continue reading Martz be crazy: Why you should draft your Bears this season
Let’s be honest. You can’t believe anything you hear in the preseason. Head coaches sound more like head cheerleaders. Rookies will all become superstars. Offensive coordinators experiment with plays that could radically change their offense for the better, and trainers expect everyone back at full speed by the first week of the regular season. It…… Continue reading Foolish Thoughts: Broncos, Bills and Bears! Bowe, my!
After going through the “pick or pass” of the average draft positions for running backs and wide receivers, we come to the next position on many draft boards, tight end. While there’s a top tier of elite options, the tight end position is pretty deep this year. Players that didn’t even make this list could…… Continue reading Fantasy Draft Day Pick or Pass: Top 12 Tight Ends by ADP
Jay Cutler is now on his way to The Windy City. For first-round picks in both 2009 and 2010, a third-round pick in 2009 and Kyle Orton — founder and president of the Neckbeard for Men Club, which just so happens to be moving its headquarters to Denver this summer — the Chicago Bears have…… Continue reading Jay Cutler traded to Chicago Bears for Neckbeard. Set your Broncos free.
There have been many injuries this season in the NFL. Unfortunately, that’s not really anything new to this sport. Some fans might call for increased player protection, more fines or more pads, but it’s hard to see that making any difference. In truth, the waiver wire in fantasy football exists as a result of the…… Continue reading On the Wire: Waiver Wire Winnings from Week 8
In 2006, I drafted Clinton Portis as my lead running back. I don’t even remember who my second running back was, but, in the late rounds, I picked myself up a rookie with too many names, Maurice Jones-Drew. When Jones-Drew blew up with his big rookie season (1300+ yards and 15 TDs), I thought I…… Continue reading On the Wire: Waiver Wire Grabs from Week 5
Desmond Clark got a two-year extension with Chicago through 2010. If you were holding out for Greg Olsen to become the elite player he is touted to become at tight end, don’t count on him breaking out next year. It looks like he will share playing time with Clark awhile longer–a long while longer. Who’d…… Continue reading Free agents developing destinations: Foster, Berrian, Muhammad [NFL Rumors]
