Let’s be honest. You can’t believe anything you hear in the preseason. Head coaches sound more like head cheerleaders. Rookies will all become superstars. Offensive coordinators experiment with plays that could radically change their offense for the better, and trainers expect everyone back at full speed by the first week of the regular season. It…… Continue reading Foolish Thoughts: Broncos, Bills and Bears! Bowe, my!
The Hall of Fame game was everything I thought it would be last night — a little bit of football surrounded by a media frenzy of interviews. Outside of two catches, we didn’t see much of the Terrell Owens and Trent Edwards show, and I’m not yet convinced that the new no-huddle offense in Buffalo…… Continue reading Foolish Thoughts: You complete me, 2009 kickoff and site enhancements
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
Tom Brady’s Week 1 knee injury in 2008 caused more than one owner in the world of fantasy football to collapse in front of their TV in tears before they ever even learned of Matt Cassel’s existence. It was just the kind of nightmare that fantasy owners fear when they assemble their team at the…… Continue reading Brady’s Back: Now Where Should I Draft Him?
At this point, you should be starting your studs. We stopped posting all the week-to-week start posts as a result, but I do have a few thoughts to throw out this week with many of you in championship or at least playoff matches. In the Cowboy game tonight, I like Tony Romo and the Cowboys…… Continue reading Week 16 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders: Championship Edition
Now, don’t go quitting the waiver wire on me because you are in the playoffs. You know that fifth wide receiver of yours has terrible matchups from here on out, and it’d be nice to replace him with a guy who has upside. Even if you don’t need players, now more than ever, it’s important…… Continue reading On the Wire: Week 14 Pickups and Playoff Late Bloomers from Week 13
Hope you had a good Thanksgiving, fools! This week, with playoffs right around the corner, you probably don’t need a lot of players to solidify your lineup. If you are looking for gems, go digging through our old waiver wire posts from this season. Still, a few guys just became relevant or might become relevant…… Continue reading On the Wire: Week 13 Pickups and Waiver Wire Reserves for the Playoffs
I don’t even know why I am awake right now at 6 a.m. on Sunday. Actually, that’s a lie. I’m awake right now because I am infused with truck stop coffee, the kind of coffee that fills you with enough energy to punch a wall with your head … twice. Needless to say, it’s been…… Continue reading Week 12 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders
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
