There’s not a lot to get excited about on this week’s waiver wire. We find ourselves choosing between a lot of options that are less than likely to pan out for more than a few games.

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]
Jamaal Charles owners: How to replace your stud running back
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

Martz be crazy: Why you should draft your Bears this season
As we await the Chicago Bears debut tonight in preseason action, I can’t wait to see if their little offseason experiment worked. When it comes to offense, Mike Martz is a kamikaze. His “leap of faith” system is as likely to blow up on a game-by-game basis as it is to succeed. While respected at…… Continue reading Martz be crazy: Why you should draft your Bears this season
