The final week of the fantasy football season has arrived. No matter what happens this Sunday, you won't be screaming at Vernon Davis or Brandon Marshall on your TV again until next August. It's sad, really.
For most fantasy football owners, this is it. Titles are won and lost in Week 16. Well, unless you're in one of those weird leagues that ends in Week 17. In which case, you probably use the metric system and still think cassettes could be making a comeback soon, too. Good luck with that.
These are the games that you’ll remember. If Le’Veon Bell and C.J. Anderson are dragging you to victory at the most important stretch of the fantasy season, they’ll always have a special spot in your personal Hall of Fame. If you were leaning on Peyton Manning to take you to the promised land just as […]
The fantasy football playoffs are just around the corner. And considering the craziness we've seen around the NFL this season, there's a good chance that very few -- if any -- of the teams in your league have already wrapped up a playoff spot.
Fantasy football's stretch run is officially here. Depending on your specific league, you basically have three or four weeks remaining in your regular season. Time is running short, and finding a way to stack wins is vital.
The NFL is definitely a passing league. Need proof? Look no further than the 23 different rookies who have caught a touchdown pass this season. Or how about the fact that Andrew Hawkins is on pace for 1,000 receiving yards. Remember when 1,000 receiving yards was a big deal? If you’re still not convinced, let […]
Reliability is vital this time of year. We’ve reached Week 8, every game is pivotal and fantasy football owners simply cannot afford to start a player who completely fails to show up. And yes, that includes kickers (thank you, Matt Bryant). Sure, guys like Andy Dalton and Torrey Smith can go off at any time […]
With Week 7 approaching, we’re officially reaching the halfway point of most fantasy seasons. And it’s getting tough to tell who you can trust around the NFL. Are the Dallas Cowboys really this good? Well, they do have the hottest running back in the league and they did just beat up on the Seahawks in […]
Week 6 is fast approaching and it’s become evident that this might be a good time for some fantasy football therapy. The game gets tougher every year, with so much access to rankings, advice and the latest news readily available to everyone at all times. Getting an edge on your leaguemates is more difficult than […]
Football can be strange sometimes. On the one hand, there’s so much free agency, combine, draft and training camp coverage from February to August that it almost feels like there’s no offseason at all. On the other hand, the actual games fly by. It seems like opening kickoff was only yesterday, yet we’re already 25 […]
The bye weeks are coming. In fact, they’re already here. Six NFL teams are out of action this weekend, and their absence is very apparent to fantasy football players everywhere. Denver, Arizona, Seattle, Cincinnati, St. Louis and Cleveland have a combined 12-6 record between them, and now they all get the week off. That means […]
Injuries are an inevitable part of fantasy football. And it reached absurd levels in Week 2. Oh sure, you’re fine if you weren’t depending on Jamaal Charles, A. J. Green, Ryan Mathews, RG III, Knowshon Moreno, DeSean Jackson, Vernon Davis, Mark Ingram and/or Eric Decker to do anything. But for the rest of the world, […]
You can only read so much into week one. Is Jamaal Charles (seven carries for 19 yards) really going to be invisible all season? Um, no. At some point, the
Chiefs will realize they may want to hand the ball to the best player on their roster.
