There are a few head-scratchers in this mix. So don’t get too excited on the waiver wire, but here are a few of the week’s top performers. David Garrard, QB, Jaguars: 260 yards, 4 TDs, 1 fumble, 2 rushing yards, 1 rushing TD vs. Cowboys Unfortunately, you can’t trust Garrard. Ever. He’ll have a game…… Continue reading Believe it or not: Jags, DHB, LeGarrette Blount come alive while Jamaal Charles, Foster, Lloyd showoff in Week 8

Week 16 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders: All the marbles? But can’t I just keep at least one?
I really hope that the scoring change on Kurt Warner’s touchdown pass to Anquan Boldin didn’t burn you. That has to be the worst kind of pain in the world. It’s exciting to pull out your semifinal game by just a few points, and it’s exciting to have a chance at the championship. Having that…… Continue reading Week 16 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders: All the marbles? But can’t I just keep at least one?
Week 10 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders: Thursday Night Football is for Lovers
It’s good that it only comes after bye weeks are over when rosters have, for the most part, been figured out. Otherwise, Thursday Night Football would be a real pain. Instead, it’s just kind of a pain because you have to remember in the middle of the week, just after setting your waiver wire claims…… Continue reading Week 10 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders: Thursday Night Football is for Lovers
Week 5 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders: Pretty please, Braylon. Pretty Please.
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.
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 4 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders: Rookie of the Year?
Chadam of contributing writer to Fantasy Football Fools fame has this theory about Chad Pennington that he asked me to share. He says they broke Pennington’s shoulder on purpose so that he can have surgery and come back next season like Rookie of the Year with a cannon that can throw 70-yard bombs. Maybe he’s…… Continue reading Week 4 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders: Rookie of the Year?
On the Wire: Week 4 Pickups and Sleepers [Insert Coffee Joke Here]
Ah, I just love the sweet smell of bacon in the morning. What? You thought I was going to say coffee, as in Glen Coffee? That would be silly. Silly like little kids who talk like big people. http://youtu.be/2T_obaO46Bo Now, get your Coffee while it’s hot. Burn! Glen Coffee, RB, San Francisco 49ers: With Frank…… Continue reading On the Wire: Week 4 Pickups and Sleepers [Insert Coffee Joke Here]
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
