Fantasy Douche has traditionally been one to bust conventions when it comes to NFL truths, written or unwritten. Back in January, he challenged the assumption that a quarterback is the key to a winning franchise by taking a look at the Patriots' passing game history and what it means to have talented receivers. "Obviously the… Continue reading Do franchise quarterbacks deserve all the credit for winning?
Keepers has some nice suggestions this week, so I thought I’d share the full vid of Matt Ufford’s talents. I do not agree with jumping off the Michael Vick train, though he had a rough night tonight. I’m still a believer. All aboard. But can we all be done with Ryan Mathews now? Get your…… Continue reading Week 3 Starts and Sits: Poor Browns, the Vikings will destroy you
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?
Each week, “Believe it or not” highlights those fantasy football studs (or mistakes) who score over 20 points in ESPN standard scoring and whether we can trust them to ever do it again. The Kansas City Chiefs might have contributed more this week to the fantasy football community than they will all year, but it…… Continue reading Believe it or not: Kevin Kolb, Matt Cassel teammates benefit and More Scoring Leaders from Week 6
This week was not a good week to bench Jay Cutler or Jahvid Best. I have Jay Cutler as my QB1 in two leagues, but I chose to bench him in one of the two to “play it safe” with Favre. I hate it when I play it safe. I hate it even more when…… Continue reading Believe it or not: Jahvid “THE” Best, Jason Snelling, LeSean McCoy, Jay Cutler and More Top Scorers from Week 2
There’s nothing glamorous about pickups at this point in the season. You’re either struggling to find meaning in your season after falling desperately behind the rest of the teams in your league or fortifying and defending your team by building a stronger bench with these free agents. But the picks are especially un-sexy this week.…… Continue reading On the Wire: Week 9 Pickups and Must-Claims
When things get back to normal, they also have to get weird. In the same week that Drew Brees blows apart the Giants like they read their defensive playbook to him as a bedtime story, Tom Brady returns to dominance in a frozen tundra that kept the Titans quarterbacks, both of them, for throwing for…… Continue reading Foolish Thoughts: Eagles pigeon-holed, Titans Patrionized and Saints crush Giants
Bengals (-5.5) over BROWNS The Bengals beat the Packers and Steelers in back-to-back games. The Browns finally benched Ms. Quinn, but Derek Anderson somehow managed to play worse in his second half debut. I have to imagine it’s tough for anybody to like the Browns in this one. Lions (+10) over BEARS The first step…… Continue reading A Fool and His Money – Week 4
http://youtu.be/fLes1MufRf8 You don’t want to be Mr. Worry. For one, that wrinkled forehead will be stuck that way forever. And two, he carries a purse. So back down from that ledge there. 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?
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
