With week 7 under our belts, fantasy football owners are past the midpoint of their regular season. The playoffs are still in sight for most, and decisions are being made to prepare for the playoffs. If you are rocking along strong at 7-0, 6-1, or 5-2 then keep doing what you are doing, and start keeping an eye on week 14, 15, and 16 matchups. You want to be careful and not mess up a winning strategy, but if you have a starter with a horrible matchup in the playoffs, then start looking for a trade that gets you someone with a great matchup. Fantasy championships are won by paying attention to weeks 14-16. If you are mid pack at 4-3 or 3-4, then continue […]

Week 8 Starts and Sits Starts: Chad Henne – Start Henne this week against Cincinatti. Many teams have Henne as a backup and with all the byes this week, then this is the week to use him. Matt Ryan just had a great game against the Bengals and Henne should also see success. Jamaal Charles and Thomas Jones – Facing the Bills this week, expect the dynamic duo of Charles and Jones to continue to have success. Owners of both will continue to hope that their back will get more carries, but the timeshare appears in place until one back falters. Frank Gore – This probably goes without saying, but Gore looks like a super start against Denver. Look for a big game here. Randy […]

With six teams on a bye in week 8 and injuries starting to stack up even higher finding some good value on the waiver wire is becoming more and more important each week. We have two solid WR’s and two good QB pickups for those of you who either lost Romo to injury, or just lost one of the solid QB’s on bye this week (Ryan, Flacco, Eli Manning, Vick/Kolb). Teams with a Week 8 Bye: Falcons, Ravens, Bears, Browns, Giants, Eagles Steve Johnson, WR, Bills – A hot WR pickup on the wire, Johnson has caught TD passes in each of his last 4 games. With improved QB play for the Bills in recent weeks, Johnson has become a serviceable starter for fantasy owners. […]

Week 7 Starts and Sits Start: Matt Ryan – Look for a good game from Ryan at home this week. Jenkins is back and in combination with Roddy White will provide a lot of targets. Add in the fact that the Bengals defense is dealing with the absence of key players and you have a great matchup for Ryan to produce. Joe Flacco – Another great start for a quarterback by committee player. Flacco versus Buffalo is a nice spot for Flacco to do some damage. Both Thomas Jones and Jamaal Charles – Look for the Chiefs two for one punch to run all over the Jaguars. It is always a little concerning to start a member of a pur committee like this, but expect […]

Top Week 7 Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

Returning to our weekly waiver wire recommendations, we continue to find mostly slim pickings, but we have four options, one of them a solid prospect for a starter, and the others ranging from bye week fillers to guys with a lot of upside. Teams with a Week 7 Bye: Lions, Texans, Colts, Jets Chris Ivory, RB, Saints – With Pierre Thomas out, Ivory is set to carry most of the load in New Orleans and can make a solid pickup for a bye week or injury replacement at the RB position. Patrick Crayton, WR, Chargers – With V-Jax out, Floyd injured, and even Nanee ailing, Crayton is likely to be the Chargers #1 WR this week and for the near future. If he plays well, […]

A huge trade went down this week that impacts both real life NFL and fantasy football. Randy Moss was traded from the New England Patriots to the Minnesota Vikings. For our purposes, we are concerned with its fantasy football impact. First, let’s address the impact to Moss himself. Moss’ value should remain relatively unchanged although it may increase some as the Vikings struggling offense will likely try to get Moss involved early to get some juice into the passing game. If you have Moss and were starting him, then continue to do so. For Brady, I believe this will be a significant impact to his value. Moss was a big physical receiver who could win jump balls and stretch the field. Drawing regular double coverage […]

The pickings on the waiver wire seems slimmer this week than in past weeks. I am finding it hard to recommend many pickups this week especially for immediate help. As the bye weeks keep coming and the injuries keep piling up then digging deep on the wire is important, so let’s see if we can find a few waiver wire gems for our fantasy football team. Teams with a Week 5 Bye: Dolphins, Patriots, Steelers, Seahawks Sam Bradford – If bye weeks or injuries have left you with a hole at QB, then Bradford could help your team. While a rookie QB isn’t what you hope to be left with, Bradford has played well in his last few starts and faces a 49ers defense that […]

Monday Night Pain: Fantasy Football Highs and Lows

It will be nice to have a week where the Monday Night Football game is just something to watch for fun and not a matchup that determines win or loss for that week’s fantasy football matchups. The MNF game always seems to magnify the pain or pleasure of a loss or win in that week’s fantasy game. For the third time this year, a big game hung in the balance for The Legend and something had to either happen (or not happen) in order to win the game. Once known as the king of Monday night for a solid streak of luck, this year MNF isn’t being as kind with a 1-2 record on Monday call outs including painful losses of 2 and 5 points. […]

An Open Letter to Norv Turner about Ryan Mathews

Dear Coach Norv Turner, First, let me get this out of the way and say congratulations on your home win today to get back on track in a big way after the embarrassing loss to the Seahawks last week. Great defensive performance that us fantasy football owners love to see when we own that defense in one of our leagues. However, Norv, we have got to talk about the horrible travesty that we saw today in regards to the usage of Ryan Mathews. Norv, it brought me to tears. Here we have a 1st round draft pick coming off an injury in a game that could be used to establish him as the team’s primary runner and you give him the rock 9 times! Only […]
