With any injury comes opportunity in fantasy football. This week, the door opens for Wendell Smallwood to see an increased role for the Eagles after Darren Sproles’ injury. We may have seen the last of Sproles as he had already stated this would be his final season, and my PPR teams will miss him. Smallwood…… Continue reading Week 4 Pickups: Injuries are for the Smallwood of heart
Even if Chris Johnson will only have one more good game this season, this is the game to start him. The Jaguars owe us that. And Matt Forte could be in for a big game of his own if Matchups is correct that Trestman will lean on the run to protect a possibly not 100…… Continue reading Week 10 Starts and Sits: Chris Johnson lives! Maybe. Sort of.
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”
I’ve coined a new fantasy football term this season: “getting Shonn Greened.” Sadly, it’s to describe the miserable performance of my own fantasy team. I drafted well, according to most rankings, guides, and general opinion, but my team manages, time and time again, to play down to my opponent. They underwhelm when everyone expects them…… Continue reading Week 9 Pickups coming up Cecil Shorts
Here’s some last-minute start and sit advice as you put lineups together for Week 3. Matt Ufford at SBNation takes some starting shots. Did he say Andy Dalton? http://youtu.be/ySmtwQslzlQ I do agree on Saints and Chiefs…and Matt Cassel. Why do you own Matt Cassel? And Cecil Lammey tells you why to sit Adrian Peterson. http://youtu.be/z27xwjfhLfY…… Continue reading Why do you still own Matt Cassel?
If you lost Jamaal Charles on Sunday, you don’t have a lot of options. He was your first round pick, and unless you play in a very small league, it’s unlikely you have someone else of Charles’ caliber on your roster to pick up the slack. You also aren’t going to find many first-round quality…… Continue reading Jamaal Charles owners: How to replace your stud running back
What happened this weekend? This happened. But more importantly, here’s a few ways to get your team back into shape. Thomas Jones / Dexter McCluster / Le’Ron McClain The situation in Kansas City doesn’t look great, but if Jamaal Charles gets the dreaded ACL diagnosis we all expect this week, he won’t be taking the…… Continue reading Give me Denarius Moore like this Week 2 Waiver Wire
http://youtu.be/fjL-4nwnkkk Chris Johnson. Steven Jackson. Adrian Peterson. THE COLTS! Why can’t we have nice things?!? Green Bay is an unstoppable force of fantasy football goodness. I’m picking up the Packers’ ball boy on the waiver wire this week, and I fully expect him to get at least 10 touchdowns this season. But the Saints defense…… Continue reading Overreaction Monday: Why Did I Draft Chris Johnson?
There are a few head-scratchers in this mix. So don’t get too excited on the waiver wire, but here are a few of the week’s top performers. David Garrard, QB, Jaguars: 260 yards, 4 TDs, 1 fumble, 2 rushing yards, 1 rushing TD vs. Cowboys Unfortunately, you can’t trust Garrard. Ever. He’ll have a game…… Continue reading Believe it or not: Jags, DHB, LeGarrette Blount come alive while Jamaal Charles, Foster, Lloyd showoff in Week 8
No time for a full start/sit post this week, but if you’re struggling to make a call for you lineup this morning, I do have lots of wonderful links for you. Fantasy Football Librarian’s Consensus Start/Sit: When it comes to Brett Favre, I’m firmly in the “sit him” camp until he proves that he’s worth…… Continue reading Week 3 Quick Hot Hands, Cold Shoulders: Take a chance on Kyle Orton, Brandon Marshall, and Vick
