The famous country singer Kenny Rogers once said “You got to know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em.” I think that is a great way to look at trades in fantasy football. Two weeks into the season and everyone is wanting to buy the guys like Robert Griffin III and Kevin Ogletree and sell the likes of Tom Brady and Miles Austin. There are many things to consider when making a trade, especially this early into the season. Here are a few key things to remember as you sort through all those crazy trade offers.

Tom Brady Appears to Cover Up Nike Logo With White Tape During Patriots' Media Session (Photos)

Tom Brady pulled an RG3. Brady showed up to Wednesday's media session wearing a gray sweatshirt. No big deal, right? Well, upon closer examination, it looks like the Patriots quarterback decided to follow in the footsteps of Robert Griffin III and cover up the sweatshirt's Nike swoosh logo. The logo, which is supposed to appear on the sleeve of the sweatshirt, appears to...

TerezOwens.com draws an astute Robert Griffin III comparison

This is just a straight repost, with credit to Terez for drawing the comparison… I always knew that Robert Griffin had a unique look. He’s got a strong sense of style, a love of socks, and he’s a pretty unique guy. But he’s reminded me of someone…

Will the triple option work for the Redskins?

Mike Shannahan is certainly known for his bag of tricks when it comes to offense, especially during his short time in Washington with the Redskins. He certainly could not ask for a better quarterback to be able to direct that offense than the reigning Heisman Trophy winner out of Baylor University in Robert Griffin, III. Through three games this season, Griffin has shown that he...

Tom Brady's Doesn't Think Patriots Have Earned Better Record, Remains Focused on 'Winning'

Tom Brady isn't used to losing, and he isn't very fond of it either. After enduring a heartbreaking loss to the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday night, the Patriots dropped to 1-2 on the season. And Brady believes that's exactly where they deserve to be. "We're 1-2, we're not in a good position right now," Brady said. "We're in the exact position...

Ravens Bro After Winning FG: “F**k You Tom Brady, You B*tch Ni**er, Motherf**ker!

Who’s a little excited about beating the Patriots on an obviously blown call from a worthless replacement ref? This guy.  It’s just Week 3, but Ravens bro’s energy was higher than ever as he squealed like a kid on Christmas morning after Justin Tucker‘s field goal sailed through (over?) the uprights. It’s pretty NSFW so throw on the headphones for this one. The context...

Tom Brady doesn't blame refs for loss to Ravens

Tom Brady really isn't one to stir up controversy like his teammate Brandon Spikes, so it's not surprise he didn't have much to offer on this topic. Though, really, most of the terrible calls were on the Patriots defense, not the offense. If anything, the Patriots offense benefited from some bad officiating.Brady puts the blame on the players for the 1-2 start, and rightfully...

Couldn't Gronkowski's performance be similar to Welker's lack of production in the first two games? This happened all the time last year--Gronkowski would have a 150+-yard game followed by a game where he only had 3 catches. Hernandez would light up one g

Well as Tom Brady has said, his favorite receiver is the open one. Moving the ball was not a problem...

Redskins-Bengals Open Thread

So far this season the Redkins have won a game we didn’t expect them to win and lost a game we didn’t expect them to lose, which is very Redskins. The difference of course is that Robert Griffin III was our quarterback in both games, and he was spectacular. May he be so again, no matter what occurs.

New England Patriots: Week 4 NFL Power Rankings (#5)

Last week: 3 (-2) Record: 1-2 The Patriots are under .500 for the first time since week 1 of 2003, but they’ll be fine. Over the past couple of years, they’ve started a little sluggish and then hit their stride. This week, they go to Buffalo to face an old punching bag and hope to avoid their first 3 game losing streak since 2002. They’re still the most consistent team in the...
