It’s very hard to be the best, but it’s very easy to get knocked off your thrown. Don’t let an early 4 – 0 start derail all your hard work, or stop you from achieving the ultimate prize, a Fantasy Football Championship. Over the last few weeks I’ve mentioned about how being 0 – 2 or 0 – 3 wasn’t the end all be all and as we head into the second quarter of the NFL season being 4 – 0 shouldn’t be either.

As always, the below mentioned players are owned in less than 25% of fantasy leagues and absolutely should be on your team right away

Jennings also sleeps in a hyperbaric chamber to increase blood...

Rashad Jennings ready to carry the load for the Raiders

With Darren McFadden doubtful for Sunday night’s game against the Chargers,  Rashad Jennings says he’s ready to carry the load. “I’m always ready,” Jennings said per CSNBayArea.com. “I’m approaching this week the same way I’ve been approaching any other. I’ll be ready for however many carries I get.” Jennings looked very good when he came in for McFadden last...

Darren McFadden is out for Week 5, Rashad Jennings will get the start

Today Darren McFadden was ruled out for week 5. This is a huge loss for the Raiders who will start Rashad Jeniings. Jennings was a stand out for Liberty back in college and is a solid starter. He will be relied on a bit, but this week against the Chargers, I expect the Raiders to […]
