I just thought it was an adrenaline thing. Welcome to Week 1. Tonight, the Saints and the Vikings play…… Continue reading THERE IS FOOTBALL TONIGHT
It’s insanity. That’s what fantasy football is when it comes to the playoffs. Jonathan Stewart and Jerome Harrison become huge fantasy steals in the final two games, and studs that you’ve depending on all season like Drew Brees and Aaron Rodgers clam up and shut down early, even in blowout wins. At least Chris Johnson…… Continue reading Foolish Thoughts on 2009 Season: So why didn’t we all draft Chris Johnson?
Last week’s Fourth & 1 fantasy football roundtable debate asked, “Which two players are you stashing for the second half? Why?” I selected LeSean McCoy and Mike Bell as my stashes for the reasons outlined below in my entry for the roundtable.

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?

Brian Westbrook convinced the world that a smaller, shifty back could make it work in the NFL. In recent years, he’s become a fantasy points factory, churning out production each season, but he’s also never been one to rely on for all 16 weeks of your fantasy season. With Westbrook’s production come injuries. Someone who…… Continue reading Injury Concerns: Are Reggie Bush and Brian Westbrook worth your draft pick?
