We just can’t have nice things. It’s time to remedy this. I’ve divided this week’s pickups with boomers, players who have high ceilings…… Continue reading Great Bernard Scott, the injuries!

I know nothing of Twilight. I like it that way, but this debate that’s been raging across all my television channels, including my sports channels, has annoyed me to no end, especially because they used my name. From what I can gather, my namesake Jacob is a werewolf who is loyal and the complete “nice…… Continue reading Week 11 Hot Hand and Cold Shoulders: Twilight Edward vs. Jacob, who ya got?
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.

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

I had to wait until after the Pro Bowl to gather my thoughts about this year’s Super Bowl. Even though the Pro Bowl is full of overhyped drama and hated by many NFL fans, I love it. Outside of a video game, the Pro Bowl is the closest thing to two fantasy teams playing against each…… Continue reading 10 Foolish Thoughts on Super Bowl XLIII
There have been many injuries this season in the NFL. Unfortunately, that’s not really anything new to this sport. Some fans might call for increased player protection, more fines or more pads, but it’s hard to see that making any difference. In truth, the waiver wire in fantasy football exists as a result of the…… Continue reading On the Wire: Waiver Wire Winnings from Week 8
In 2006, I drafted Clinton Portis as my lead running back. I don’t even remember who my second running back was, but, in the late rounds, I picked myself up a rookie with too many names, Maurice Jones-Drew. When Jones-Drew blew up with his big rookie season (1300+ yards and 15 TDs), I thought I…… Continue reading On the Wire: Waiver Wire Grabs from Week 5
