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.
I wanted to make a switch this past weekend at defense to sub in the New Orleans Saints D/ST for the Green Bay Packers D/ST. Considering they had the same bye week and with some doubt in the Saints’ newly discovered fantasy worthiness, I was slow to make that change. I thought the Packers D/ST…… Continue reading On the Wire: Week 5 Pickups, Drops and Bye Week Filler
Congrats, fools. If you’re still following pickups at this point in the season, you made the playoffs.

These sudden, mysterious and largely unreported injuries have got to stop. Last week, Carson Palmer was a late scratch. This week, the victim was Matt Schaub, who was hit by a virus the night before the game. I normally set lineups Saturday night and then let them run, but this sudden injury plague makes me…… Continue reading Foolish Thoughts on Week 5: And another three bite the dust?
If you are playing a week 17 championship, my condolences. You really should try to get that changed for next year–and I do mean really. Week 17 is unpredictable because you don’t know who will start let alone who will show up to play well. Lucky for you, plenty of injuries this week will give…… Continue reading Week 17 Wire: Find players that still care this week
