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.
Sometimes you draft poorly. I’m told it happens. You may end up with a worthless set of running backs — guys who got too old without letting you know that you should remove them from your draft board. Maybe you ended up with a horrible corps of wide receivers — the worst of the worst…… Continue reading Sorry, Kolb. Michael Vick starts in Philadelphia after all
Sports Data Hub recently investigated the usefulness [SDH no longer has this online] of Vince Young for the rest of the season, but that analysis was optimistically given before his come-from-behind fourth-quarter drive for the win against the Cardinals. Those last-second heroics capped off a fantasy day that had him throwing for almost 400 yards. http://youtu.be/NUU6YSgNMT0…… Continue reading Vince Young: Playoff Pickup or Passable Projections?
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
This is why we can’t have nice things. After just one week of preseason football, both Carson Palmer and Marc Bulger need to see some time on the shelf. Palmer suffered a high ankle sprain on his left ankle in the team’s first preseason game against the New Orleans Saints. The injury will keep Palmer…… Continue reading Carson Palmer, Marc Bulger already on the sidelines
When you think about it, an eagle is just an older, more mature cousin to the falcon. I guess once you’re a bird, you’re always a bird. Michael Vick finally landed in Philadelphia after an offseason of speculation. The most recent rumors had him signing with the Patriots or Bills, but the Eagles jumped to…… Continue reading Michael Vick signs with Eagles, playing tight end?
Is Matt Ryan really all he’s cracked up to be this season? I wasn’t much of a believer in the 2008 class of NFL quarterbacks. I even doubted that Matt Ryan would make it off the board among the top five picks, but I am sure the Falcons are glad they didn’t feel the same…… Continue reading Taking the Next Step: Matt Ryan Projections for 2009
Tom Brady’s Week 1 knee injury in 2008 caused more than one owner in the world of fantasy football to collapse in front of their TV in tears before they ever even learned of Matt Cassel’s existence. It was just the kind of nightmare that fantasy owners fear when they assemble their team at the…… Continue reading Brady’s Back: Now Where Should I Draft Him?
It’s the debate that began as soon as the Cowboys released Terrell Owens: Where does Tony Romo rank without his prized target in the passing game? I’ve exchanged emails with fellow Fools writer Chadam and several other fantasy football compatriots since my post on the release of the infamous No. 81, but I’ve been reluctant…… Continue reading Without T.O., is Romo still an elite fantasy quarterback?
Now that that the 2009 NFL Draft has come to and end and Mel Kiper Jr.’s hair has been safely removed and returned to its storage locker in Guantanamo Bay, the fantasy football world has to slot, rank and file the rookies of 2009 based on their expected fantasy impact. But when it comes to…… Continue reading How good will Pat White be?
