Corny title. Check. It’s never fun when you lose your stud quarterback — or any stud for that matter — this close to the playoffs. It hurts. But those unfortunate enough to lose Aaron Rodgers to injury can take solace in the wealth of quarterback options that have emerged to take his place. If you…… Continue reading Week 10 Fantasy Football Pickups: Replace Your Quarterback? Rodgers That.
Forgive me for the punny title. I didn’t get a lot of sleep this weekend, and I think I’m still operating on Oakland time. But that said…don’t you want four time slots of NFL football EVERY Sunday? Personally, I loved being able to go straight into another one after Sunday Night Football wrapped up, even…… Continue reading Week 6 Pickups: Are you Keenan on these Chargers?
I can’t be certain that I covered all of this week’s best waiver wire grabs because, to be honest, after Adrian Peterson went down and rode out of the stadium on a cart, I went into shock and then into a hysterical state from which I am only now emerging. Is Twilight still a thing?…… Continue reading This Kevin Smith is not Too Fat to Fly in Week 12 Pickups
Let’s not struggle with the sadness of this moment, that a season of The League is once again coming to an end. Let’s, instead, celebrate what we have been given: a new champion, a new reason to look forward to next football season even if our fantasy football team sucks again in 2011 (there will,…… Continue reading The League S02E13: “The Sacko Bowl” Kicks Off [Season 2 Finale]
In this holiday episode, The League celebrates “Adult Halloween” with Kevin in the burbs, Ruxin suffers at his own hands, forced by Pete to set the lineup that he will play against, and Taco sets in motion a series of events that could lead to monkey rape…It’s a Halloween episode, people. Get excited. This episode…… Continue reading The League S02E07: Watch out for the “Ghost Monkey” this Halloween!
If you’ve stashed Sidney Rice away on your bench waiting for his triumphant return to fantasy football studliness, it’s time to drop him. Let him go. Let someone else burn that candle, sacrificing a roster spot for almost the entire season in hopes that he will return to dominance for their playoff push. You need…… Continue reading 5 Reasons to Drop Sidney Rice
Randy Moss returned to the Minnesota Vikings yesterday as the latest victim of the Patriot Way, the “get out while we can still get draft picks for you” way. After all, there is no “pay” in Patriot…err, wait, that doesn’t seem right. While there is no “I” in team, there are two in Belichick. Above all,…… Continue reading What Randy Moss trade to Minnesota means for fantasy owners, a collection of thoughts from around the Web
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
It’s one of the most frustrating occurrences in fantasy football. It’s not a Baltimore fan complaining about the refs or John Carney missing three kicks when just one would have won the fantasy game you lost by a point. No, the most sickening feeling in fantasy football hits you when you start the wrong guys. There’s…… Continue reading Foolish Thoughts: My Beef with Fleaflicker’s Coach Rating
While imagining the possibilities of Vince Young returning to his starting job — Hey, it could happen… Maybe?

While a little outdated after Laurent Robinson’s injury this week, I participated in the Fourth & 1…… Continue reading Shameless Plugging: Surprising Receivers and Disappointing Starts
