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]
After 8 catches, 114 yards, and 2 touchdowns against the Giants, you might be rushing out to claim Kevin Ogletree on the waiver wire as this year’s Laurent Robinson. Not so fast. http://twitter.com/FantasyBuddha/status/243564595195834369 While he’s certainly proven he can perform when called upon, Ogletree’s been on the Cowboys’ roster long enough and been named an…… Continue reading Is Dallas Cowboys WR Kevin Ogletree 2012’s Laurent Robinson?
Thanksgiving is a time for giving thanks. You should pause for a moment and think of all the players you have to thank for getting you where your fantasy team is today. Thank you, Terrell Owens, for going off the week we finally gave up on starting you. Thanks so much for being worthless just…… Continue reading Week 12 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders: Carson Palmer, Michael Crabtree, Steve Smith, and Pilgrim’s Pride on Turkey Day
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
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. The fine young hair models from Fantasy Football Writers with Hair put together a 10-team, 16-round mock draft with a few of the Fanhouse crew, reps…… Continue reading Hair Model Mock Draft 2009: Tweaking the System
Last week, in the process of participating in a mock draft with several other fantasy football writers from the Interwebs, I got stuck inside of a random ESPN draft outside of the one we were using for the official mock draft. After the first couple of picks, which I made as quick reactions since I…… Continue reading Random ESPN Mock Draft: Results May Vary
It’s the debate that began as soon as the Cowboys released Terrell Owens: Where does Tony Romo rank without his prized target in the passing game? I’ve exchanged emails with fellow Fools writer Chadam and several other fantasy football compatriots since my post on the release of the infamous No. 81, but I’ve been reluctant…… Continue reading Without T.O., is Romo still an elite fantasy quarterback?
Seriously, how much do you hate DeAngelo Williams right now? Many a game was won or lost off the play of DeAngelo Williams Sunday night. While I thought he’d keep rolling as he has been the past several weeks, I didn’t think he’d get more than two touchdowns, and I never dreamed that he would…… Continue reading Foolish Thoughts on Week 16: How much do you hate DeAngelo Williams?
I’m convinced that there is something in the water in Denver. If you’re in Colorado, don’t drink it. Just dump it down the drain and walk away. It must contain a chemical that turns your muscles into paper. How else would Shanahan lose four running backs in the same season — five if you count…… Continue reading Foolish Thoughts on Week 14: Game balls and last-quarter falls
