http://youtu.be/fjL-4nwnkkk Chris Johnson. Steven Jackson. Adrian Peterson. THE COLTS! Why can’t we have nice things?!? Green Bay is an unstoppable force of fantasy football goodness. I’m picking up the Packers’ ball boy on the waiver wire this week, and I fully expect him to get at least 10 touchdowns this season. But the Saints defense…… Continue reading Overreaction Monday: Why Did I Draft Chris Johnson?
http://youtu.be/Ue9L9oJWxwQ In this business, nothing goes as planned. If it did, why would be play? (The wins, of course, but I digress…) We got our first taste of reality one week ago on Thursday night. The Vikings hoped to avenge their playoff loss to the Super Bowl Champion Saints on the NFL’s biggest Week 1…… Continue reading Brett Favre’s 2010 Vikings: You aren’t who we thought you were, yet
ESPN reports this morning that Brett Favre plans to retire rather than rejoin the Minnesota Vikings. He managed to keep the Vikings on the hook until training camp before finally dropping the hammer. What a team player. IF and when Brett Favre actually takes the stage and says…for the third time…that he plans to retire,…… Continue reading Brett Favre Retires: What It Means for the Vikings’ Fantasy Values
Yes. So much yes. Don’t get caught up in the hype of this Adrian Peterson vs. Chris Johnson debate. Sure, Chris Johnson had a phenom year. He broke 400 touches in 2009. He may not do that in 2010; in fact, he probably won’t. There’s a good chance he could suffer a setback or injury…… Continue reading Should you draft Chris Johnson at No. 1?
These Patriots are clearly not the same team that we expected to see back on the field with Brady’s return. When New England traded Richard Seymour to the Oakland Raiders, it proved one thing: Bill Belichick will do anything for a first round draft pick. Draft picks are like crack to him. Belichick cannot refuse.…… Continue reading Foolish Thoughts: Wherefore art thou Patriots?
It’s easy to hate Brett Favre right now. In fact, it’s encouraged. Just as we were about to lock in Sage Rosenfels as the starting quarterback of the Minnesota Vikings, Favre decides to show up after the toils of training camp and sign a contract for, you know, whatever the Vikings could find in the…… Continue reading The Favre Effect: Brett Favre’s fantasy impact on Vikings
Brett Favre isn’t going to save the Purple People Eaters and their Purple Jesus. So what? Favre wasn’t going to have a large fantasy impact on the team this season anyway. To prove my point, let’s take a look at all the purple players affected in this one. Adrian Peterson, RB Well, it would have…… Continue reading Brett Favre stays retired: What Good are Favre-less Vikings
As the NFL draft approaches, we all get a little antsy for football season to start. We start salivating over the latest and greatest rookie talent and their the flashy 40-yard dash times, and we forget about all the players from last year’s draft, the ones we talked up to our buddies every Saturday watching…… Continue reading A Six-pack of Quarterbacks to Remember in 2009 for Dynasty Teams, Keepers and Sleepers
After a day’s worth of exciting, close games, Sunday is all about defense. The Ravens, Dolphins, Eagles and Vikings have all made a habit of getting after the quarterback and stopping the run. In a playoff setting, I don’t think we see a lot of points today unless the Vikings or Eagles blow it open.…… Continue reading Wild Card Weekend, Part 2: Sunday’s Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders
Here we are in the postseason, and just because the regular season is over, that doesn’t mean your fantasy football season has to come to and end. Before we dive into our offseason coverage on how to make you a better fantasy football player and more attractive to the opposite sex, we’ll be covering the…… Continue reading Wild Card Weekend, Part 1: Saturday’s Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders
