It’s getting to be that time. The fantasy playoffs are near. Records are shaking out. If you’re set to make a deep playoff run, you should be reshaping your team to play it’s best fantasy football in Weeks 14-16. Of course, that’s assuming you’re all playing championship games in Week 16, which is the only…… Continue reading Moore to live for in Week 11 Pickups
Seriously, guys, what’s going on out there? Are all the Jamaal Charles owners still stepping on cracks? Did the Kenny Britt owners walk under 50 ladders on their way to work Friday? We just can’t have nice things. It’s time to remedy this. I’ve divided this week’s pickups with boomers, players who have high ceilings…… Continue reading Great Bernard Scott, the injuries! Week 4 Waiver Wire Pickups with Boomers, Blahs, and Stashes
The first few days of NFL free agency are like sitting in Santa’s lap. You can ask for anything you want with the assumption that you’ll get it. And I do that every year. Ask for things in free agency, that is. Not sit in Santa’s lap. Since the NFL left us cold and alone…… Continue reading 5 Player Moves the NFL Owes Fantasy Football (And Me)
So Deion Branch is now a Patriot? That’s exciting for Bill Belichick and all — that man knows how to swing a three-way trade while moving up in the draft. But I don’t think the trade changes Branch’s fantasy value much. Branch wasn’t that useful as a Seahawk, and they are hurting for playmakers. Tom…… Continue reading On the Wire: Week 6 Waiver Wire Pickups to fix your Jermichael Finley, Mark Clayton and Aaron Rodgers woes
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?
It’s championship week. There’s not time for taking chances, looking for sleepers, or playing around with your roster. You know who your studs are, but these select few players could sub in if you have an absolute beast of a opponent, and if you are daring enough to bench a player you’ve trusted to get…… Continue reading On the Wire: Week 16 Pickups That You Certainly Don’t Need This Week
I hope this week matters to you. It certainly matters to me. I’ve made it this far in the playoffs, and I don’t plan to stop until I get a championship. There’s a theme this week out there. I’ve noticed it. It’s Jamaal Charles love. Try and find someone who hates him this week. Other…… Continue reading Week 15 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders: Who’s Going to Win Me My Championship
The playoffs are truly fickle. Just like your high school girlfriend (well, if you had a girlfriend), they tire of you after about two weeks. If you lost in Week 14, you can probably identify a few names on your new hate list, updated daily while you rub lipstick on your face and cry, from…… Continue reading The Team That Knocked You Out of the Playoffs in Week 14
There aren’t many names out there that I haven’t mentioned previously, but if you’re strengthening your roster for a playoff run, some favorable schedules make these players more lucrative grabs than others. If you didn’t secure a quarterback with a favorable schedule during the fantasy playoffs, or if you are worried about your starter sitting…… Continue reading On the Wire: The Must-Haves, Week 14 Pickups for Fantasy Football Playoffs
Sports Data Hub recently investigated the usefulness [SDH no longer has this online] of Vince Young for the rest of the season, but that analysis was optimistically given before his come-from-behind fourth-quarter drive for the win against the Cardinals. Those last-second heroics capped off a fantasy day that had him throwing for almost 400 yards. http://youtu.be/NUU6YSgNMT0…… Continue reading Vince Young: Playoff Pickup or Passable Projections?
