It’s horrible to watch your stud running back go down with an injury. It’s especially horrible when you don’t own his backup. But it’s incredibly joyful for all of us surfing the waiver wire. After DeMarco Murray went down last week and opened the door for two potential running back pickups Felix Jones and Phillip…… Continue reading Rashad Jennings is the new MJD in Week 8 Pickups
I can’t be certain that I covered all of this week’s best waiver wire grabs because, to be honest, after Adrian Peterson went down and rode out of the stadium on a cart, I went into shock and then into a hysterical state from which I am only now emerging. Is Twilight still a thing?…… Continue reading This Kevin Smith is not Too Fat to Fly in Week 12 Pickups
I know nothing of Twilight. I like it that way, but this debate that’s been raging across all my television channels, including my sports channels, has annoyed me to no end, especially because they used my name. From what I can gather, my namesake Jacob is a werewolf who is loyal and the complete “nice…… Continue reading Week 11 Hot Hand and Cold Shoulders: Twilight Edward vs. Jacob, who ya got?
Chadam of contributing writer to Fantasy Football Fools fame has this theory about Chad Pennington that he asked me to share. He says they broke Pennington’s shoulder on purpose so that he can have surgery and come back next season like Rookie of the Year with a cannon that can throw 70-yard bombs. Maybe he’s…… Continue reading Week 4 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders: Rookie of the Year?
Just as I broke down the running back average draft position with my “pick or pass” ranking style and noted which players might be worth skipping over in your draft rankings, I’m doing the same with wide receivers. Unlike running backs, many of the top receivers are worth a pick at their current draft stock,…… Continue reading Fantasy Draft Day Pick or Pass: Top 36 Wide Receivers 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
Last week, in the process of participating in a mock draft with several other fantasy football writers from the Interwebs, I got stuck inside of a random ESPN draft outside of the one we were using for the official mock draft. After the first couple of picks, which I made as quick reactions since I…… Continue reading Random ESPN Mock Draft: Results May Vary
Jacob here. I guess it’s time for us to stop covering up the deep, dark secret we’ve been hiding for the last several weeks. You see, we killed Chadam. It’s not that he was doing a terrible job picking spreads each week … well, actually, he really was falling off there near the end, but,…… Continue reading A Fool and His Money in Week 15
I think he secretly held a grudge that we didn’t pick him earlier in the season when he was looking like a champion. To prove his point, Santana Moss went off in Week 8 against the Lions and finally got his time in the spotlight here at Fools. Moss caught nine passes for 140 yards…… Continue reading Dude… Santana Moss
