Week 7 showed us that those with opportunity can produce. Jarrett Boykin filled in more than admirably for James Jones and Randall Cobb. Harry Douglas made the most of his opportunity to be the Falcons No. 1 wideout. But to top that off, we got a bunch of new injuries to send us scrambling to…… Continue reading Week 8 Pickups: Harry Douglas, Jarrett Boykin, and the attack of the injury fill-ins

Unicorns! Show Ponies! Where’s the Beef?
Yes, all this and more in this clip from the color commentator as the New England Patriots shocked the Saints. http://soundcloud.com/airchecked/tom-brady-to-kenbrell I’d say that’s a lot of color for a commentator. Unicorns!
Why do you still own Matt Cassel?
Here’s some last-minute start and sit advice as you put lineups together for Week 3. Matt Ufford at SBNation takes some starting shots. Did he say Andy Dalton? http://youtu.be/ySmtwQslzlQ I do agree on Saints and Chiefs…and Matt Cassel. Why do you own Matt Cassel? And Cecil Lammey tells you why to sit Adrian Peterson. http://youtu.be/z27xwjfhLfY…… Continue reading Why do you still own Matt Cassel?
Why I Would Draft Jimmy Graham Over Rob Gronkowski
Those of you who follow me on Twitter have probably seen my running commentary on all of the ESPN Fantasy Football Roundtable discussions. Many of ESPN’s Roundtables are pretty straightforward and were easy to discuss in just the 140 characters that Twitter allows, but a few are worthy of meatier discussion. That’s what I’d like to…… Continue reading Why I Would Draft Jimmy Graham Over Rob Gronkowski
Pondering Christian Ponder: NFL Draft 2011 First Round Fantasy Football Gut Reactions
I don’t get excited about who “won” the draft. I get excited about who I’ll draft for my fantasy football team. When it comes to fantasy relevance, the first round didn’t overwhelm us. The 2011 draft set a record for defensive linemen taken in the first round with 12, but it’s hard to say that…… Continue reading Pondering Christian Ponder: NFL Draft 2011 First Round Fantasy Football Gut Reactions
On the Wire: Week 6 Waiver Wire Pickups to fix your Jermichael Finley, Mark Clayton and Aaron Rodgers woes
So Deion Branch is now a Patriot? That’s exciting for Bill Belichick and all — that man knows how to swing a three-way trade while moving up in the draft. But I don’t think the trade changes Branch’s fantasy value much. Branch wasn’t that useful as a Seahawk, and they are hurting for playmakers. Tom…… Continue reading On the Wire: Week 6 Waiver Wire Pickups to fix your Jermichael Finley, Mark Clayton and Aaron Rodgers woes
Brett Favre’s 2010 Vikings: You aren’t who we thought you were, yet
http://youtu.be/Ue9L9oJWxwQ In this business, nothing goes as planned. If it did, why would be play? (The wins, of course, but I digress…) We got our first taste of reality one week ago on Thursday night. The Vikings hoped to avenge their playoff loss to the Super Bowl Champion Saints on the NFL’s biggest Week 1…… Continue reading Brett Favre’s 2010 Vikings: You aren’t who we thought you were, yet
Why the Colts Won’t Win the Super Bowl
I usually don’t write these kinds of posts, the ones that look at just one particular team’s chances in the NFL playoffs, but considering the fantasy season is winding to a close, I felt compelled to share my take on one of this week’s big storylines. In the midst of a 15-10 third quarter with…… Continue reading Why the Colts Won’t Win the Super Bowl
On the Wire: Week 16 Pickups That You Certainly Don’t Need This Week
It’s championship week. There’s not time for taking chances, looking for sleepers, or playing around with your roster. You know who your studs are, but these select few players could sub in if you have an absolute beast of a opponent, and if you are daring enough to bench a player you’ve trusted to get…… Continue reading On the Wire: Week 16 Pickups That You Certainly Don’t Need This Week
On the Wire: The Must-Haves, Week 14 Pickups for Fantasy Football Playoffs
There aren’t many names out there that I haven’t mentioned previously, but if you’re strengthening your roster for a playoff run, some favorable schedules make these players more lucrative grabs than others. If you didn’t secure a quarterback with a favorable schedule during the fantasy playoffs, or if you are worried about your starter sitting…… Continue reading On the Wire: The Must-Haves, Week 14 Pickups for Fantasy Football Playoffs
