Jay Cutler is now on his way to The Windy City. For first-round picks in both 2009 and 2010, a third-round pick in 2009 and Kyle Orton — founder and president of the Neckbeard for Men Club, which just so happens to be moving its headquarters to Denver this summer — the Chicago Bears have…… Continue reading Jay Cutler traded to Chicago Bears for Neckbeard. Set your Broncos free.
Congrats, fools. If you’re still following pickups at this point in the season, you made the playoffs. I guess there are some of you out there who may be seeking out ways to beef up your keeper or dynasty team for next year but for the large majority of you, playoffs. Good work. I hope…… Continue reading On the Wire: Week 15 Pickups and Waiver Wire Grabs for Playoffs
I’m convinced that there is something in the water in Denver. If you’re in Colorado, don’t drink it. Just dump it down the drain and walk away. It must contain a chemical that turns your muscles into paper. How else would Shanahan lose four running backs in the same season — five if you count…… Continue reading Foolish Thoughts on Week 14: Game balls and last-quarter falls
There’s no tying in football. None. You only get one sudden death overtime, and if no team can manage to score a single point, you’re done. It’s bad enough that Andy Reid and the Eagles have a hard time managing the clock, but before taking the field to come away even with one of the…… Continue reading Foolish Thoughts on Week 11: There’s no tying in football
Do yourself a favor and forget everything that happened in the first half of the season. As we’ve seen from the past two weeks, not every team is going to bow out of the season quietly. The Chiefs, 49ers and Seahawks might surprise a few top contenders before they put a nail in the 2008…… Continue reading Foolish Thoughts on Week 10: Enter the tight end zone
It’s time for change, America. Bring me your injured, your underperforming, your studs gone duds. Together, we can reshape your fantasy team for the future into a team without injustice, without phantom starts (see: Willis McGahee) and without any of Shanahan’s running backs — well, maybe just one. Yes, we can. Yes, we can. YES,…… Continue reading On the Wire: Waiver Wire Free-for-all from Week 9
Obviously, things change in fantasy football. There’s no Tom Brady, and therefore, no Randy Moss. Offenses in Seattle, Cincinnati and Cleveland are in shambles. Jacksonville keeps turning it over, and the Denver Broncos might have the most explosive offense of 2008. Shanny, we knew you had it in you. I won’t even say that I…… Continue reading Week 3 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders
Now that we have the explanation out of the way, let’s talk Week 1 picks. Jacob’s Ed. Note: Note that due to some compulsive gambling this weekend, we didn’t get the Week 1 picks up before the games. If you didn’t notice, congratulations — you rock. Starting Week 2, picks should be up prior to…… Continue reading A Fool and His Money in Week 1
If you haven’t drafted yet, I’m sorry. Life just isn’t fair. Cry me a river and try hosting a party in a cave or under a rock so that the rest of your league doesn’t hear this news. If you have drafted, you just might be sitting on fantasy gold if you snagged Brandon Marshall…… Continue reading Brandon Marshall now suspended only one game, lights fantasy skyrocket
