These Patriots are clearly not the same team that we expected to see back on the field with Brady’s return. When New England traded Richard Seymour to the Oakland Raiders, it proved one thing: Bill Belichick will do anything for a first round draft pick. Draft picks are like crack to him. Belichick cannot refuse.…… Continue reading Foolish Thoughts: Wherefore art thou Patriots?
This second guest post comes to us all the way across the pond from Ross Mooring of Never Kick a Gift Horse in the Teeth. This article is a follow up to his first guest post on three RBBCs to avoid in your drafts this season. It’s now time to look at the running-back-by-committees (RBBC)…… Continue reading Guest Post: Three RBBCs to Target in Fantasy Football Drafts
We’ve analyzed the rankings for running backs, wide receivers and tight ends already this preseason and recommended who you should avoid when it’s your turn to pick. Now, it’s time to take on the quarterback position. Most standard fantasy teams will only need two quarterbacks on the roster, one starter and one backup. What separates…… Continue reading Fantasy Draft Day Pick or Pass: Top 12 Quarterbacks by ADP
There was actually a mock draft that I participated in last week besides the one that I let the ESPN autodraft bot destroy by filling the bench with quarterbacks. The fine young hair models from Fantasy Football Writers with Hair put together a 10-team, 16-round mock draft with a few of the Fanhouse crew, reps…… Continue reading Hair Model Mock Draft 2009: Tweaking the System
So the Cardinals have game — and a run game at that.

Before we dive into our offseason coverage on how to make you a better fantasy football player and more attractive to the opposite sex, we’ll be covering the…… Continue reading Wild Card Weekend, Part 1: Saturday’s Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders
First of all, why are you guys still having your championship in Week 17? That’s like playing a game of chess for hours only to bring in toddlers to play out the final three moves. Why would you do that? And where did you get chess-playing toddlers? This week, I absolutely love everyone involved with…… Continue reading Week 17 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders: Championship Edition?
It’s craziness in Week 17. Will the playoff teams even bother to start their studs? Will the backups be decent when they get in there? We can attempt to negotiate through the darkness of the last week of the season, but in reality, we’ll just be happy to be at .500 for the season with…… Continue reading A Fool and His Money in Week 17
It was hard to bring my thoughts together between fits of extreme sobbing after watching all the football games in a very serious, totally masculine way this weekend.

Note from Jacob: Somehow, after a rager of a game of Monopoly — yes, we are five years old — and a weekend of fantasy football talk, we got Chadam to disagree with Nick on some of this week’s picks. Oakland Raiders at San Diego Chargers Fools Take: CHARGERS (-9) over Raiders Nick says: I…… Continue reading A Fool and His Money in Week 14
