Fantasy Football Week 12 NFL Ranks

Happy Josh Gordon week, everyone. Go ahead and flip to the WR tab to see where he settles in (spoiler: as a solid WR1, with some trepidation about his workload and conditioning). Beyond that, we’re coming to the end of the bye weeks so most teams should have their full compliment of players available for the stretch run. With full benches, the relative value of each player on your...

2014 Fantasy Football: Thursday Night Football Preview

Jamaal Charles Thursday November 20, 2014 Kansas City Chiefs @ Oakland Raiders We have a real barnburner this week. Just kidding. We have the worst team in the league, a team flirting with the worst team ever conversation against a good but painfully boring division rival. There is no way to put a positive twist on this one.

Why I Hate Fantasy Football

I hate fantasy football because players always have their best weeks against me.  I have faced the likes of Brian Quick, Shane Vereen and Shayne Graham when they score their season high points. This is a big reason I sit at 3-8, in last place and have given up the most points in the league! Other fantasy football season highs I have faced: Andrew Luck Philip Rivers Julio ...

2014 Fantasy Football Daily Fix: Week 12 Tight Ends

It is on to week 12 of Daily Fantasy Football at DraftKings. I’m back again this week to offer my picks for the Tight End position at DraftKings. Last week was another disappointing week for the TE crew. There hasn’t been a lot of consistency week to week for this position. However, we soldier on to find the best value for this week.

Minnesota Vikings Claim Ben Tate

The Minnesota Vikings have claimed RB Ben Tate off waivers.  Tate was waived by the Cleveland Browns yesterday.  Tate will again be on a team with 2 other running backs, and have to fight for playing time, which was the reason he was frustrated in Cleveland.  Very strange move by the Vikings, who have a young RB prospect in Jerick McKinnon, a decent back up in Matt Asiata,...

Bet the Mortgage: Week 12, 2014 NFL Best Bets

It was probably a bit inevitable. Tony and I had combined to add nearly $17,000 to our hypothetical bankrolls throughout the first 10 weeks of the season, really without any major bad weeks along the way. Sure, we lost a few bucks here and there, but for the most part it’s been full pseed ahead. In week 11 reality set in. I was 0-4 and Tony was 1-3, and we collectively gave more...

He has thrown for 24 touchdowns (tied for fourth in the league), only six picks, and 3,270 yards (third in the league). At his service, he has arguably the best receiver in the NFL in Antonio Brown, and one of the finest pass-catching backs in the NFL in Le'Veon Bell.  Yes, Big Ben is a top-five...
