We never have gotten to see the league members in their unnatural environment: their jobs. Sure, in Season 1, we saw Kevin and Ruxin negotiate a plea bargain and a trade of the No. 1 overall pick, but we never saw them in court. Pete’s been in an office, but we’ve never seen him working.…… Continue reading The League S02E09: Never Use Your Friend as an “Expert Witness”
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
So you’re prepping your team for the final push, but you’re worried you need a couple more warm bodies? Well, that’s not a problem. That’s what a fantasy football roundtable is for. This week’s Fourth & 1 Debate topic came from Hatty Waiver Wire Guru. He asked: Waivers are about to close in some leagues…… Continue reading Fourth & 1 Debate: Waiver wire stashes for the fantasy playoffs
Is there anything sadder than two coaches from the worst teams in the league arguing about who cheated? There are sad clown faces, and then there are SAD CLOWN FACES, people. I’m pretty sure half the NFL wishes that this game wasn’t even televised. It might fool some people into believing that the Browns and…… Continue reading On the Wire: Week 12 Pickups, Playoff Prep, and Matt Leinart
Another critical bye week hits us right where it hurts, in the middle of the season. At least this week provides us with a few more players that have value from now until the end of the season. If anyone was silly enough not to pick up Miles Austin after I talked about him for…… Continue reading On the Wire: Week 8 Pickups, Sleepers, Sadness and Fantasy Basketball
Last week’s Fourth & 1 fantasy football roundtable debate asked, “Which two players are you stashing for the second half? Why?” I selected LeSean McCoy and Mike Bell as my stashes for the reasons outlined below in my entry for the roundtable. After seeing Brian Westbrook suffer a concussion in Monday Night Football tonight, I…… Continue reading Fourth & 1 Debate: Two running backs worth stashing
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
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
These Patriots are clearly not the same team that we expected to see back on the field with Brady’s return. When New England traded Richard Seymour to the Oakland Raiders, it proved one thing: Bill Belichick will do anything for a first round draft pick. Draft picks are like crack to him. Belichick cannot refuse.…… Continue reading Foolish Thoughts: Wherefore art thou Patriots?
