So now begins our recovery from this great weekend of injuries. It’s all your fault, but I forgive you. This week, we are left with the scraps of all the teams who lost one of their studs. Hot Claims Justin Forsett, RB, Seattle Seahawks — Let’s be honest. Forsett already had a great shot of…… Continue reading On the Wire: Week 11 Pickups, Replacements Justin Forsett, Bernard Scott, and McCoy
I watched the UFL game last night, and it wasn’t even like the accidentally-left-it-on-that-channel kind of watch. I actually watched it. It was far more interesting than watching Missouri spank Nebraska in the rain. J.P. Losman led the Las Vegas Locomotives, an engine of destruction, I’m told, to a come-from-behind victory against the California Redwoods,…… Continue reading Week 5 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders: Pretty please, Braylon. Pretty Please.
I wanted to make a switch this past weekend at defense to sub in the New Orleans Saints D/ST for the Green Bay Packers D/ST.

I thought the Packers D/ST…… Continue reading On the Wire: Week 5 Pickups, Drops and Bye Week Filler
Ah, that was nice, wasn’t it? The start of the NFL season is just like taking a hot shower, and Week 1 is when someone flushes the toilet to give you that frigid, but refreshing, blast of unbearably cold water. Once you’ve recovered from the shock, it’s lovely, just lovely. This week, we’re looking for…… Continue reading Week 2 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders: And who plays the Lions this week again?
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
We started our dynasty talk with a look at the quarterbacks on benches you may have forgotten as the NFL draft approaches, but now it’s time to refresh your memory about a few receivers that could be valuable for keeper leagues and dynasty leagues. Some even have a shot at fantasy stardom in 2009. Demetrius…… Continue reading Six Well-Received Dynasty Wide Receivers for 2009 Sleepers and Keepers
Today’s matchups treat us to a battle of two defenses and a battle of two different styles of offense. Baltimore Ravens at Tennessee Titans This game is all about the defense. I wouldn’t want to bet on many of the offensive stars being a factor, but there are a few players who should have an…… Continue reading Divisional Playoffs, Part 1: Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders
As you might have guessed, my weekend didn’t quite go as planned. You see, I got a new day job in Dallas — and no, it’s not as backup quarterback for the Cowboys despite the fact that Brad Johnson didn’t put up much of a fight. If you’d rather skip the story and get straight…… Continue reading Foolish Thoughts on Week 12: What happened to my weekend
There’s no tying in football. None. You only get one sudden death overtime, and if no team can manage to score a single point, you’re done. It’s bad enough that Andy Reid and the Eagles have a hard time managing the clock, but before taking the field to come away even with one of the…… Continue reading Foolish Thoughts on Week 11: There’s no tying in football
By now, your season may be over, but there’s no reason to start cutting players like the Raiders unless they are still underperforming. Now is the time to grab up all those players the teams that beat up on you want to cripple them for their playoff run! That’s right. Bitterness breeds competition.
