I struggled for a couple days before I sat down to write about Colin Kaepernick’s decision not to stand during the national anthem. In the end I still might not say everything right, but I’m not going to let that deter me from expressing my feelings about the situation. (more…)

I remember a time not very long ago when this game had a lot more Fantasy star power.

One of the more underrated rivalries now, not long ago before the San Francisco player exodus, NFC Championship conversation began and ended in the Pacific Northwest with these two teams. (more…)

Division and playoff predictions are tricky in the NFL.

Every week a team can look like a “team to beat” or the worst team you’ve ever seen. With the NFL only playing 16 games, one could put themselves in a situation to be roundly criticized for picking the wrong team without the benefit of hindsight.  (more…)

Fantasy Football 2015: I Don’t Play Fantasy Football For Money, But Here Are 5 Tips If I Did

Isaiah Crowell had an even more effective 2014 than his numbers (607 yards, 8 TD, 4.1 YPC) indicated and he's in line to be the feature back in Cleveland.

I make no secret about my dream job in sports: to be the General Manager of an NFL or MLB team. Until then, I get my fix playing and writing about fantasy sports and giving opinions on sports topics. (more…)

Before I get started does anyone want to explain themselves for not following my post-week 2 advice and picking up Larry Donnell? (more…)

Fantasy Football 2014: Fantasy Football Quarterback Tiers Done My Way

Jekyll and Hyde?: Games 1-8: Stafford's numbers were 2,617 yards, 16 TD's, 6 INT's and a 94.7 rating. Games 9-16: 2,033 yards, 13 TD's, 13 INT's and a 72.1 rating

Jekyll and Hyde?: Stafford’s first-half numbers (2,617 yards, 16 TD’s, 6 INT’s and a 94.7 rating) didn’t resemble anything he did in the second-half ( 2,033 yards, 13 TD’s, 13 INT’s and a 72.1 rating)

The quarterback position is the most important position in fantasy football.

Go ahead and disagree. I say that without a hint of reservation or sarcasm. It doesn’t make sense to place the hopes of a well drafted team in the hands of someone who isn’t going to consistently give you the production you need from, what should be, the steadiest spot on your roster. (more…)

National Football League 2014: Some Friends And I Ranked All 32 NFL Quarterbacks, The Results Were Interesting

Joe Flacco and Ben Roesthlisberger both own Super Bowl rings, but didn't get much top-10 love in the rankings

Joe Flacco (average rank: 12.5) and Ben Roesthlisberger (average rank: 11.3) both own Super Bowl rings, but didn’t get much top-10 love in the rankings

I thought it would be fun to ask a few of my friends to rank all 32 starting quarterbacks in the NFL as they saw fit. As you can expect, once some of them (myself included) got into the process they realized that ranking them was more difficult than first thought. (more…)

Fantasy Football 2013: Week 3 Recap, Week 4 Advice, And The Mike Glennon Project

Terrell Pryor has played his way into QB1 conversation, but steer clear of Matt Flynn if Pryor is out week 4

A day late is better than never, right? So to recap, in my four leagues I am (2-1) and still not satisfied. I think the primary reason for that dissatisfaction are because Ray Rice is hurt (hip) and Colin Kaepernick isn’t playing at a high level as of yet. Speaking of Kaepernick, the prevailing question I’ve had all week is should you be worried about his performance.  (more…)
