Corny title. Check. It’s never fun when you lose your stud quarterback — or any stud for that matter — this close to the playoffs. It hurts. But those unfortunate enough to lose Aaron Rodgers to injury can take solace in the wealth of quarterback options that have emerged to take his place. If you…… Continue reading Week 10 Fantasy Football Pickups: Replace Your Quarterback? Rodgers That.

Week 6 Pickups: Are you Keenan on these Chargers?
Forgive me for the punny title. I didn’t get a lot of sleep this weekend, and I think I’m still operating on Oakland time. But that said…don’t you want four time slots of NFL football EVERY Sunday? Personally, I loved being able to go straight into another one after Sunday Night Football wrapped up, even…… Continue reading Week 6 Pickups: Are you Keenan on these Chargers?
The League S03E13: The Funeral for Kevin’s Championship [Season 3 Finale]
This is why we can’t have nice things. Ruxin stroked out. Kevin got everyone busted for redrawing the draft order, and Andre still doesn’t have an ICE. How can we save this season? We all got a bit of a scare in the last episode. Could Ruxin be dead? Will his face really stick like…… Continue reading The League S03E13: The Funeral for Kevin’s Championship [Season 3 Finale]

Week 7 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders: LenWhale fall down, go boom
Patrick Crayton just straight up offended me by complaining that he wasn’t told that he was being replaced in the starting lineup. Seriously? But seriously? But seriously? I guess he was the last to know. I knew two weeks ago. Let’s just drop the act, Crayton. You saw Miles Austin have the best day of…… Continue reading Week 7 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders: LenWhale fall down, go boom
On the Wire: Week 5 Pickups, Drops and Bye Week Filler
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. Considering they had the same bye week and with some doubt in the Saints’ newly discovered fantasy worthiness, I was slow to make that change. I thought the Packers D/ST…… Continue reading On the Wire: Week 5 Pickups, Drops and Bye Week Filler
Week 3 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders: Why worry?

Pause a second before you put on that lipstick and trace over the names of your fantasy studs turned duds. They turned on…… Continue reading Week 3 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders: Why worry?
On the Wire: Week 3 Pickups and Sleepers
If your team is 0-2, you could use the help, but don’t do anything crazy. I know of a league where a man dropped Matt Schaub after his pitiful Week 1 performance. I will name no names, but I’m pretty sure he regrets that now. He should. Your top picks deserve some time to find…… Continue reading On the Wire: Week 3 Pickups and Sleepers
