It’s that time of year again. It's the time that you make your annual pilgrimage to The Shrine of False Hope that is fantasy football. I don’t know why we let so much of our personal self-esteem become connected to our fantasy football teams, but it happens. I would say there’s nothing wrong with that, but if I’m being honest, there’s probably something wrong with that.
However, there are really only two choices in addressing the problem and since quitting isn’t an option, I’m going to offer a band-aid solution to your fantasy football self-esteem issue by giving you a few ideas that will help you win your league this year.
Aaron Rodgers is Somehow Becoming Undervalued
If Aaron Rodgers falls to the third round of your draft (which he is doing in about 20% of all drafts right now), you should pick him up. It’s true that quarterback is really deep this year, but getting Aaron Rodgers in the third round is a value that we haven’t seen in fantasy football since about 2003. From 2...

This Sunday, the NFL season kicks off with the annual Hall of Fame game, where the Dallas Cowboys will take on the Miami Dolphins. That means in about one month, the regular season starts and the Green Bay Packers look to defend their NFC North crown. The first half of the season for the Packers is filled with many heavy hitters from...
David Wilson and Andre Brown
The New York Giants opened up training camp this weekend with most of the starting jobs already locked up. The one position that is still up grabs is running back, and Andre Brown and David Wilson are the two players fighting for it.
Last year, David Wilson burst onto the scene as an excellent kick returner, and only really contributed to the running...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Consider it a friendly competition for a good cause, albeit one that would cancel out any diet plans.
Six members of the Green Bay Packers, including quarterback Aaron Rodgers, outside linebacker Clay Matthews and head coach Mike McCarthy, all designed their own burgers for a contest that will benefit charity.
For one week each between now and Sept. 7, one of the...
Overall, I’m moderately pleased with my team from this mock draft. I got some reliable star players in Arian Foster and Aaron Rodgers, some guys I’m in love with this year such as Ryan Broyles and Eddie Lacy; however, an error in drafting Percy Harvin in the 3rd round left me scrambling at Running Backs …

With the first pick in the 2013 Pro Bowl Draft, Deion Sanders selects…….Aaron Rodgers. This could very well happen after the big announcement made by the NFL and NFL Players Association earlier today. After years of fans, media and players complaining about the AFC vs. NFC Pro Bowl format, a change has finally been made.
The “All Star Draft” is just the headlined of many...
When former Green Bay Packers WR, Greg Jennings, left the cheese state for their arch rivals, Minnesota Vikings, I don’t think anyone foresaw the coming drama between Jennings and his former QB, Aaron Rodgers. Jennings seemingly had a great relationship with Rodgers. The two were prolific together and it aided in giving Jennings the big free agent contract that he is now enjoying...
The writing has been on the wall about the Pro Bowl for a while. In 2011 the NFL was “disappointed” with the lack of effort that was shown by the players, and several players were also disgusted by it too, most notably Aaron Rodgers. Goodell gave the players another chance in 2012 before coming to a conclusion about whether or not to scrap the game in general.
However, the players...
Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said Tuesday during his post-practice press conference that he is not concerned with rookie running back Eddie Lacy’s conditioning. “Eddie Lacy, going through the conditioning test, he was fine. If we had any concerns about our players’
Greg Jennings is no different from a lot of wide receivers in the NFL who whine, cry and moan about everything. He has been given a pass for the most the part for his TOish style behavior.
The media is funny like that, if they don’t consider you important enough, they will just ignore you.
Jennings’ head coach though is tired of his whining and told him to cut it out.
The first contract was too hot: Joe Flacco isn’t worth anywhere close to the $120.6 million he got and never will be.
The second contract was too cold: Aaron Rodgers might be worth double the $110 million he got.
The third contract? Just right.
Don’t get me wrong, I understand why Joe Flacco and Aaron Rodgers aren’t being paid correctly. For someone as good as Rodgers...
Minnesota Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier met with Greg Jennings on Saturday to tell the wide receiver to knock it off with the Aaron Rodgers junk. Jennings has made a few negative comments about his former Green Bay teammate since signing with the NFC North rival Vikings in March. In one interview, Jennings chose Brett [...]
I remember reading this type of piece when I was new to fantasy football and feeling shocked to see writers put Pro-Bowlers on their Bust Lists… what were they thinking!? Some years later, here I am about to do the same. As I came to learn, what you have to remember is that it’s all about value. Today, we'll look at why Alfred Morris, David Wilson and Mike Wallace among others...

It's no secret times have changed as we have grown up over the years. One of the biggest changes we've seen is the evolution of social media. Obviously, Facebook and Google+, among others, continue to be big players in the social media landscape, but it seems Twitter is the way to go if a person wants instant responses to his or her comments. Yes, this is a good tool...
