http://youtu.be/F1fD-Tuqncs Keepers gets the lead off. Reuben Randle is looking like a weekly flex play with the amount of targets he’s getting in the Giants passing game. Sad face for the rec to sit Greg Olsen after he finally got in the end zone Thursday night. Is it bad that I’m starting to come back…… Continue reading Week 8 Starts and Sits: All of the byes! All of them!
If we picked the winner of Super Bowl XLVII based on Facebook interaction, the Dallas Cowboys would take home the Lombardi Trophy. According to research done by Social Fresh, America’s Team was the most liked, but Steelers fans were the most vocal. Unfortunately, neither team gets a shot at the title this year. But if…… Continue reading Cowboys get likes, Steelers get loud, but 49ers Facebook-ed on top for Super Bowl XLVII [Infographic]
Going up against the Pittsburgh Steelers’ defense is a tough task for any quarterback, but when you draw that challenge as the quarterback of the Cleveland Browns…and as your first NFL start…well, that’s nearly impossible. As such, ESPN has their doubts about Colt McCoy this week, not that you were thinking about starting him. With…… Continue reading A promising beginning for Colt McCoy? ESPN doesn’t think so.
This week was not a good week to bench Jay Cutler or Jahvid Best. I have Jay Cutler as my QB1 in two leagues, but I chose to bench him in one of the two to “play it safe” with Favre. I hate it when I play it safe. I hate it even more when…… Continue reading Believe it or not: Jahvid “THE” Best, Jason Snelling, LeSean McCoy, Jay Cutler and More Top Scorers from Week 2

I’m doing this in place of…… Continue reading Don’t sleep on Huggy, 7 more sleepers
I thought we’d do things a little differently this week. By this point, I expect that most of you know who you are starting and sitting during these critical weeks of the fantasy playoffs. As such, I don’t think you’ll need as much help deciding which players to start and sit. Trust is as important…… Continue reading Week 14 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders: You Know Where This is Going
I got stuck watching the New England Patriots abuse the Tampa Bay Buccaneers across the pond in London during the early games. I thought we sent this game overseas so that no one here would have to watch it? While the action was riveting, oh, so riveting, I found myself checking my fantasy football scores…… Continue reading Foolish Thoughts: Magical phone refresh voodoo makes Vernon Davis score touchdowns
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
Bengals (-5.5) over BROWNS The Bengals beat the Packers and Steelers in back-to-back games. The Browns finally benched Ms. Quinn, but Derek Anderson somehow managed to play worse in his second half debut. I have to imagine it’s tough for anybody to like the Browns in this one. Lions (+10) over BEARS The first step…… Continue reading A Fool and His Money – Week 4
This guest post comes to Fantasy Football Fools from Eric Amzallag of sports pick site UnlockedSports.com.
