FANTASY PLAYS: QBs have more value amid injuries

The 2014 season may go down as the worst year ever for the first five picks in fantasy football drafts. Let's assume your league went LeSean McCoy, Jamaal Charles, Adrian Peterson, Matt Forte and Eddie Lacy at the top of the draft. They have combined for 810 yards and one touchdown through three games, giving them 87 fantasy points based on standard scoring formats (1 point for...

Do the Detroit Lions have the best running back tandem in the NFL?

You may have heard recently that running backs are getting devalued in the National Football League. Considering that Maurice Jones-Drew could only get three million a year in the offseason that’s probably true, but that doesn’t necessarily make it smart. Even as teams get more and more pass heavy, the playoffs consistently prove that teams with good running games have a leg...

Upset Picks for Week 3 of the NFL Season

We didn’t necessarily perform too well with our upset picks last week, going 0-3 after a solid 3-1 performance to open the season. It didn’t help that our article was published mere hours before the Adrian Peterson news. But I digress. Week 3 offers up a nice slate of action with some division rivals going up against one another in early-season impact games. There will also be...

5 Must Watch Head-to-Head Match Ups in NFL Week 3

courtesy: Fox Sports The first two weeks of NFL action are in the books, and everything that’s happened on the field seems almost irrelevant at this point. The Ray Rice and Adrian Peterson controversies have overshadowed the league’s on-field product, but hopefully at this point next week, we’ll only be talking about real, actual football. Let’s get that trend started now...

Russell Wilson will help restore your waning faith in the NFL

The last 10 days have been quite the bummer if you're an NFL fan. From Ray Rice to Adrian Peterson to Roger Goodell to bailing sponsors to upset citizens demanding that heads roll, faith and public trust in the league has been shaken to its core. It's depressing. But if you're looking for a ray of light, look no further than Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson...

Winning next week will heal all wounds for the Seattle Seahawks

The 2014 Seattle Seahawks are many things. They are remarkably talented and deep; their defense continues to defy the best efforts of the league office to ensure every team in the NFL fields a 300-yard-per-week passing game. They are all but invincible at home at Fortress 12th Man.  They are also 1-1 after two weeks. The harsh reality of the NFL is this: you are only as good as...

Sunday wrap: Chargers knock the Seahawks off their pedestal

The talk was, and will be, about Ray Rice, Adrian Peterson, Greg Hardy and other unfortunate situations. On Sunday, it was also about a run of minor to serious injuries to some really key players, with Robert Griffin III leading that list in notability and severity. But out on the West Coast, it was about an outstanding football game played by a very good team. And that team was...

8 Injuries That Would Derail the NFL Season

There are many factors to include when looking at the most valuable players in the National Football League. For example, just because Adrian Peterson might be one of the best all-around players in the NFL, it doesn’t make him one of the most valuable. In order for that to be the case, a player must play on a contending team. At least, that’s one of the factors I take into account...

Fantasy Football 2014 Preview: Ranking The Top 10 Defense/Special Teams

Think fantasy defenses don’t matter? In 2013, the Seattle Seahawks’ defense scored more fantasy points than Adrian Peterson in ESPN standard scoring leagues. Defenses like last year’s Seahawks unit don’t come around often, obviously, but you get the point. Having a defense that can consistently give you 10-plus points per game is a huge plus. Seattle is an obvious top choice...

The Numbers Say Beast Mode Should Report To Camp

Friday saw the start of Seattle Seahawks training camp with the glaring absence of starting running back Marshawn Lynch, who is holding out, presumably, for more money or an extension.  While the sudden retirement of wide receiver Sidney Rice frees up some cap space, the Seahawks, so far, don’t seem inclined to move that savings into Lynch’s bank account.  So, the question...
