It’s becoming ever harder to field a quarterback with injuries plaguing the position up and down the fantasy ranks. With that in mind, we’ll start by noting that Josh McCown and Ryan Fitzpatrick are both viable options, especially this week as they face off. https://twitter.com/RapSheet/status/927622917894139904 Fitzpatrick gets the start in the wake of Jameis Winston’s…… Continue reading Week 10 Pickups: Time for Fitzmagic
Week 2 gives us a little more clarity, but a number of poor showings have us concerned. I wouldn’t go betting an eyebrow on the outcome of any of your fantasy performances. My big roster question comes down to whether I can trust T.Y. Hilton to get involved this week. Despite all the matchup love…… Continue reading Week 2 Starts: What do we know now?
It’s getting to be that time. The fantasy playoffs are near. Records are shaking out. If you’re set to make a deep playoff run, you should be reshaping your team to play it’s best fantasy football in Weeks 14-16. Of course, that’s assuming you’re all playing championship games in Week 16, which is the only…… Continue reading Moore to live for in Week 11 Pickups
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
This week changed my opinions about a few of the guys I recommended last week (Torain, Benn), and we had some breaking news with Marshawn Lynch’s move to Seattle. I think I’m more excited that all the rumors about Lynch being traded or not being traded will stop. If you’re looking to fill some empty…… Continue reading On the Wire for Week 5 Pickups: Ryan Torain time, remember Blount, Tiquan Underwood, and the West Coast’s newest resident Marshawn Lynch
This week either means the world to you or doesn’t matter at all. It’s an interesting part of fantasy football. Few will panic over their lineup this week unless they are on the edge of a playoff seat. Those of you who have secured a playoff birth are probably just riding most of the same…… Continue reading Week 13 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders: The One that Matters Most with Miles Austin, Mendenhall, and Antonio Bryant
Let’s not play games. I know you’re most likely looking for just one or two players to complete your fantasy football playoff dynasty before Week 13 or ignoring most of the free agents for a chance to ride out the season while looking nonchalant. Chicks dig nonchalant. While it’s always admirable to fight to the…… Continue reading On the Wire: Week 13 Pickups, Vince Young, Fred Jackson, and Playoff Depth
At some point, we have to stop framing recommendations to start LaDainian Tomlinson with stats from his past performances. “For his career, L.T. averages 100+ yards and bazillion touchdowns against (fill in the blank).” No crap. L.T. was a dominant fantasy force up until last season, but how much suck did L.T. average just last…… Continue reading Week 8 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders: L.T. is a zombie
Some will say not to get rid of the superstar wide receiver, but Terrell Owens’ time to make an impact in Buffalo is running out. As the season goes on and the weather in Buffalo turns colder, the Bills’ passing game is at the mercy of the elements. For the past two years, Lee Evans…… Continue reading The real concern with T.O.’s lack of production thus far
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.
