There’s not a lot to get excited about on this week’s waiver wire. We find ourselves choosing between a lot of options that are less than likely to pan out for more than a few games. Those seeking running back help can look first to Oakland where Marshawn Lynch should sit out Week 8 for…… Continue reading Week 8 Pickups: Ghouls, Goblins, and Ghostly Running Back Streamers
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?
Congratulations on escaping from that rock you’ve been trapped under for all those long months since the Super Bowl. Hopefully, you weren’t trapped in this thing. After you get a good, warm meal inside of you, I’m sure you’ll be wondering what happened in the world since you departed. Or if you, like me, took…… Continue reading Top 15 Fantasy Football Storylines You Missed Since the Super Bowl
As if you needed a two-minute explanation of why you should never trust Ted Ginn Jr. as a fantasy football wideout, here you are. Please cover the eyes of any young children in the room. http://youtu.be/ZYSxJgjjJFc via Pro Football Talk Yeah, it’s really that bad. Do not draft, people. Do not draft. Ginn’s own hands…… Continue reading Ted Ginn: This is why you can’t have nice things
It’s good that it only comes after bye weeks are over when rosters have, for the most part, been figured out. Otherwise, Thursday Night Football would be a real pain. Instead, it’s just kind of a pain because you have to remember in the middle of the week, just after setting your waiver wire claims…… Continue reading Week 10 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders: Thursday Night Football is for Lovers
Baseball stole our Sunday Night Football. How is that fair? Give it back, World Series. I demand it. I’m fine with baseball as long as I don’t have to sit through an entire game. In my opinion, it should be played in highlight form, jumping to the major parts and leaving out all the rest.…… Continue reading Foolish Thoughts: Marc Bulger and Sunday Night Sadness
He did it. I can’t believe he did it. Braylon Edwards, of stone hands fame, caught almost everything that came his way in his debut with the Jets on Monday night. It’s possible to argue that he was robbed of a second touchdown on the night when a circus catch down the sideline got reviewed…… Continue reading On the Wire: Week 6 Pickups, Sleepers and Bye Week Saviors
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?
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
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
