SB Nation’s War Room gives some great advice: “Never bet against Adrian Peterson.” Also, “BBQ and Andy Reid are a match made in heaven.” I can’t say I agree with the Doug Martin hate. I’m a full believer in that department, and I love him even more when you look at the schedule he faces…… Continue reading SB Nation’s Fantasy Draft Guide 2013 advises “Never bet against Adrian Peterson”
There are many ways to predict the outcome of an NFL game. Some sites bring out the animal mascots or flip coins. Some dig through the numbers. Some claim to be gut-instinct experts. So when we looked at how we might predict the winner of this year’s Super Bowl, we thought why not look to…… Continue reading Astrological Super Bowl Predictions: Who’s Dancing in the Bayou?
I can’t be certain that I covered all of this week’s best waiver wire grabs because, to be honest, after Adrian Peterson went down and rode out of the stadium on a cart, I went into shock and then into a hysterical state from which I am only now emerging. Is Twilight still a thing?…… Continue reading This Kevin Smith is not Too Fat to Fly in Week 12 Pickups
With two weeks to gauge our free agent stock, we’re now more able to tell who’s rising to the top and who will be free agent fodder all season long. Here are a few frequently available players who caught my eye in the last two weeks. Josh Freeman, QB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers Wow. A quarterback…… Continue reading On the Wire: Mark Clayton, Josh Freeman, and Jason Snelling top ones to grab for Week 3
This week was not a good week to bench Jay Cutler or Jahvid Best. I have Jay Cutler as my QB1 in two leagues, but I chose to bench him in one of the two to “play it safe” with Favre. I hate it when I play it safe. I hate it even more when…… Continue reading Believe it or not: Jahvid “THE” Best, Jason Snelling, LeSean McCoy, Jay Cutler and More Top Scorers from Week 2
It’s once again a weak waiver wire week, but you’ll have to deal with it. By now, your team should be well-equipped to weather the playoff storm. If not, how did you make it this far? Bribes? Trickery? Bribery and trickery? If you’re looking for talent, the FF Librarian is holding it down with plenty…… Continue reading On the Wire: Playoff Week 15 Pickups to Block From Your Opponents (If You Dare)
Baseball stole our Sunday Night Football. How is that fair? Give it back, World Series. I demand it. I’m fine with baseball as long as I don’t have to sit through an entire game. In my opinion, it should be played in highlight form, jumping to the major parts and leaving out all the rest.…… Continue reading Foolish Thoughts: Marc Bulger and Sunday Night Sadness
In a fantasy football group I participate in each week, Fantasy Football Fanatics on LinkedIn, I recommended going with Beanie Wells in a flex spot over Andre Johnson this week. Am I crazy or is this smart strategy? I’m going with the numbers here. My argument for going with Beanie: There is definitely a huge…… Continue reading Starting Beanie Wells over Andre Johnson: Smart Play or Crazy Talk?
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
These Patriots are clearly not the same team that we expected to see back on the field with Brady’s return. When New England traded Richard Seymour to the Oakland Raiders, it proved one thing: Bill Belichick will do anything for a first round draft pick. Draft picks are like crack to him. Belichick cannot refuse.…… Continue reading Foolish Thoughts: Wherefore art thou Patriots?
