Washington-redskins
The money weeks in Fantasy Football are Weeks 14-16, and with that in mind, it's time to crunch the matchups again. The rankings below are how each team's Strength of Schedule looks for the next three games (based on FF points allowed over two months, with some special sauce thrown in). We're not saying the Redskins passing game can be trusted or the Steelers passing game can't (you'll notice Washington is on top and Pittsburgh is on the bottom); we're saying that the Redskins are up against fantasy-friendly opponents as far as quarterback stats go, while the Steelers are facing teams that haven't allowed much to opposing quarterbacks in the recent weeks. Some roto players are down with SOS, some see it as a good tie breaker, and some throw it in the garbage. In the eternal (and slightly edited) words of Digital Underground, do what you like. The quarterback schedule board is yours after the jump. (Rankings for other positions will be added to this post...

Darrelle Revis on Rex Grossman

I’m pretty sure I’ve successfully diagnosed one issue that the Redskins are facing. It’s like a contradiction or something. 1) They say they’d like to win the turnover battle. 2) They employ Rex Grossman. Grossman, bless him, has 18 turnovers in his nine starts this season. His 15 interceptions are third in the NFL, and he has 95 fewer pass attempts than anyone else in the...

Rex Grossman aiming for strong rebound

Rex Grossman admittedly didn’t play his finest game last Sunday as Washington fell 34-19 to the New York Jets. But the Washington Redskins quarterback knows he must put that outing behind him. The nine-year veteran completed just 19 of his 46 passes (just 41.3 percent, second-lowest of his season) for 221 yards and an interception, was sacked twice and fumbled once. Grossman...

Sustained drives key for Redskins vs. Patriots

Washington Redskins quarterback Rex Grossman looks to rebound from one of his worst outings of the season. Grossman completed just 19 of 46 pass attempts against the New York Jets with an interception. That amounted to a 47.5 quarterback rating, down from 95.5 and 96.6 against Dallas and Seattle respectively, ...

Sunday’s five least valuable players, Week 13

Rex Grossman, Quarterback, Washington Redskins. The Redskins quarterback situation is worse than that of the Texans, Colts, or Dolphins, despite those three teams all suffering catastrophic quarterback injuries, while the Redskins have chosen their exact situation and "enjoyed" good health at the position all year. Rex's performance Sunday is about as bad as a quarterback...

By the Numbers - Jets

Here are the pertinent numbers and statistics from the Washington Redskins 34-19 loss to the New York Jets on Sunday: 304 - Total yards for the Redskins, to the Jets 266 yards. Washington led in many of the offensive statistics, but got clobbered on the one that counts - the score. The Redskins ran 71 offensive plays, and the Jets ran 62; they both averaged 221 - Yards passing...

Flames: Don’t laugh, Grossman could go from zero to playoff hero

Each week the Noise highlights 12 somewhat obscure, unobvious names who he believes are destined to torch the competition. For those playing the Flames home edition, each player must be started in fewer than 60 percent of Yahoo! leagues to qualify. As an accountability advocate, results, whether genius or moronic, will post the following week using the revamped scoring system...

Looking for a good sleeper?

Last night we had friends over for a bourbon tasting party and despite the boisterousness that inevitably developed, our son managed to sleep through the entire thing directly one floor above the fun. Such a good sleeper. But if it's fantasy sleepers that you're in the market for, just read on. Get your Sleepers for Week 14 from FFToolbox.com - or head on over to KFFL.com...

Week 14 HotnNot's

Hot- Start'em if ya Got'emQB – Rex Grossman – Yes the QB with more Gross in his name and game than ‘sexy’ is the QB start’em this week. I wanted to go Flacco but this matchup for Rex is too sexy! Dan Orlovsky just threw for 350 yards against the Patriots, so why can’t Rex? I figure with no Fred Davis and Trent Williams, the TE will now be blocking on the line...

Opening Lines: Week 14

The Patriots opened as 7.5-point favorites as they travel to Washington to take on the Redskins in Week 14. Despite my inhibitions about trusting Rex Grossman against a good team, I was leaning toward taking the Redskins in this game when I first glanced at the line. For all of their warts, this Washington team has a better-than-average defense with a very good pass rush and can...

NFL Monday Morning Rewind

… Ugh. Denver 35, Minnesota 32: Did Tim Tebow do it again or did Tim Tebow do it again? Sidenote – Lets all just pretend that the Vikings are a real NFL team this year. It helps with the whole Tim Tebow mystique. Also, this was awesome. NY Jets 34, Washington 19: You want to win with Rex you have to be prepared to lose with Rex and when you lose with Rex, woof. Sidenote ...

Everyone giddy about Maybin's giddy-up

Less than 24 hours removed from a fourth-quarter strip sack of Rex Grossman that helped seal the Jets' 34-19 win, Aaron Maybin had a seat in Rex Ryan's office, chatting it up with the coach.
