Yes, yes. We never got to pickups this week. But if it’s any consolation, we didn’t have much to work with. Danny Woodhead is stashed in many a league and has been mentioned previously. Rashad Jennings isn’t exactly exciting. Zac Stacy makes for a sneaky play or stash this week as he could potentially get…… Continue reading Week 5 Starts and Sneaky Pickups

SB Nation’s Fantasy Draft Guide 2013 advises “Never bet against Adrian Peterson”
SB Nation’s War Room gives some great advice: “Never bet against Adrian Peterson.” Also, “BBQ and Andy Reid are a match made in heaven.” I can’t say I agree with the Doug Martin hate. I’m a full believer in that department, and I love him even more when you look at the schedule he faces…… Continue reading SB Nation’s Fantasy Draft Guide 2013 advises “Never bet against Adrian Peterson”
The League S03E11: The Guest Bong takes Taco TO THE CLOUD!
Pete’s general lack of ambition and disheveled appearance certainly don’t hinder his ability with the ladies. His prowess is best displayed in his uncanny ability to “outkick his coverage” with each girl he brings around. Danielle, his latest catch, is just another example of his ability to go above and beyond. Kudos to him. But she’s…… Continue reading The League S03E11: The Guest Bong takes Taco TO THE CLOUD!
The League S02E09: Never Use Your Friend as an “Expert Witness”
We never have gotten to see the league members in their unnatural environment: their jobs. Sure, in Season 1, we saw Kevin and Ruxin negotiate a plea bargain and a trade of the No. 1 overall pick, but we never saw them in court. Pete’s been in an office, but we’ve never seen him working.…… Continue reading The League S02E09: Never Use Your Friend as an “Expert Witness”

THERE IS FOOTBALL TONIGHT
I’VE BEEN TYPING IN ALL CAPS FOR THE LAST 12 HOURS. I CAN’T STOP. TONIGHT IS FOOTBALL. THE NFL IS BACK…BACK, BABY! OH, THERE IS A BUTTON TO TURN THIS OFF? Ahhhh, well, that is better.

How to Win Your Fantasy Football League on Draft Day – vers. 2010
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
And while you’re kicking yourself for not drafting these guys in the first place
Here’s a look from Sports Data Hub at the top fantasy performers at each position as of the beginning of December. [Update: Link no longer available] We all wish we could go back to the draft and change something, whether we want to draft Miles Austin or not draft Matt Forte, but looking at the…… Continue reading And while you’re kicking yourself for not drafting these guys in the first place
Week 16 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders: All the marbles? But can’t I just keep at least one?
I really hope that the scoring change on Kurt Warner’s touchdown pass to Anquan Boldin didn’t burn you. That has to be the worst kind of pain in the world. It’s exciting to pull out your semifinal game by just a few points, and it’s exciting to have a chance at the championship. Having that…… Continue reading Week 16 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders: All the marbles? But can’t I just keep at least one?
The Team That Knocked You Out of the Playoffs in Week 14

If you lost in Week 14, you can probably identify a few names on your new hate list, updated daily while you rub lipstick on your face and cry, from…… Continue reading The Team That Knocked You Out of the Playoffs in Week 14
