Even if Chris Johnson will only have one more good game this season, this is the game to start him. The Jaguars owe us that. And Matt Forte could be in for a big game of his own if Matchups is correct that Trestman will lean on the run to protect a possibly not 100…… Continue reading Week 10 Starts and Sits: Chris Johnson lives! Maybe. Sort of.
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?
Keepers has some nice suggestions this week, so I thought I’d share the full vid of Matt Ufford’s talents. I do not agree with jumping off the Michael Vick train, though he had a rough night tonight. I’m still a believer. All aboard. But can we all be done with Ryan Mathews now? Get your…… Continue reading Week 3 Starts and Sits: Poor Browns, the Vikings will destroy you
In Week 12, we find ourselves with a good supply of new faces. Injuries to LeSean McCoy, Willis McGahee, and Rob Gronkowski have not only opened doors but will also be sending several fantasy owners in every league scrounging to the wire. So be prepared for some competition. I won’t break down the FAAB bids…… Continue reading Here’s Ronnie: Week 12 Pickups and Jaguars
http://youtu.be/fjL-4nwnkkk Chris Johnson. Steven Jackson. Adrian Peterson. THE COLTS! Why can’t we have nice things?!? Green Bay is an unstoppable force of fantasy football goodness. I’m picking up the Packers’ ball boy on the waiver wire this week, and I fully expect him to get at least 10 touchdowns this season. But the Saints defense…… Continue reading Overreaction Monday: Why Did I Draft Chris Johnson?
This week’s top performers weren’t too surprising. A few of them we’ve heard of before, and a few of them have already been consistently working their way towards greatness over the first four weeks of the season. Then, there are the defenses. Matt Forte, Bears RB: 166 yards, 2 TDs, 2 catches for 22 yards…… Continue reading Believe it or not: Brandon Lloyd, Hakeem Nicks Prove They Are Legit and More Top Scores from Week 5
Austin Collie, WR, Colts: 12 catches for 171 yards, 2 TDs Believe It: This was not the stat line Reggie Wayne owners wanted to see, but without Pierre Garcon, Peyton Manning locked onto Collie while Dallas Clark and Reggie Wayne got most of the attention from the Denver defense. I don’t expect Collie to get…… Continue reading Believe it or not: Austin Collie, Peyton Hillis, Lance Moore and More Top Scores from Week 3
When it comes to fantasy football draft strategy, I’ve tried almost everything. RB-RB? Of course. Draft a quarterback in the first round? Sure. WR-WR? Most definitely. But all this trial and error has paid off. After hammering out what I think is my best strategy to date last season in the “cutting out the middle…… Continue reading How to Win Your Fantasy Football League on Draft Day – vers. 2010
I once heard that Peyton Manning can hear us think our own thoughts. In the huddle, he thinks so hard that the middle linebacker opposing him get headaches. Headaches lead to fear; fear leads to anger; anger leads to hate; and hate leads to Manning’s audible at the line that allows his laser-sighted, rocket arm…… Continue reading Week 6 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders: A Week Without Peyton Manning
Darren McFadden is the biggest fantasy football tease in America. If Keith Olbermann were still doing his “Worst Person in the NFL” segment, it would be Run DMC. McFadden is the flirt that no one ever dates, and the bane of many a fantasy football team. Draft him his rookie season? Oh, yeah, about that…… Continue reading Foolish Thoughts: Darren McFadden is dead to me, make the Brett Favre stop and other tales of horror
