2012 NFL Draft Reset: Patriots Can’t Get Chandler Jones, Select Tight End

The 2012 NFL draft will always be remembered for its quarterbacks. Seattle Seahawks signal-caller Russell Wilson has already won a Super Bowl, Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck is on his way to being one of the best in the NFL and Robert Griffin III has showed unlimited potential in his first two seasons with the Washington Redskins.

Giants must address running back position

For years, the New York Giants have survived through a viable running game led by beloved former stars Ahmad Bradshaw and Brandon Jacobs. Both are gone now, however, and with 2012 first-round pick David Wilson’s career at risk due to a severe neck injury and Andre Brown set to become a free agent, the G-Men are certain of nothing at the running back position. Ideally, Wilson will...

Fantasy Perspective: ANYTHING GOES!

I have come to the conclusion that I have yet to hear the proverbial “fat lady sing”, even while my records stand at 4-5 and 3-6 in two out of the five FFL I am in this season.  Any other year, those standings would flat line any chances I would have at making the playoffs in any league.  However, for some cosmic reasoning I have finally acknowledged, I am still in the thick...

Dreaming of Streaming Week 7: Advice from Vegas

We have no shortage of potentially low-scoring affairs from which to pick this week, as, amazingly, there are five games with over-unders of 43 or lower. An unofficial perusal of my over-under charts from this season show that, at most, there are three contests pegged at the 43-point mark or lower. The degenerate Vegas deities have rained low-scoring manna from betting heaven, where...

There comes a time in every fantasy season where players begin to fall to injury, so picking up their replacements and moving on is more important to your fantasy team then complaining about the one game you got out of Julio Jones, since trading for him a week ago  Thursday, or drafting David Wilson in round two, the steal of the draft you thought you had by taking Miles Austin...

Week 6 Fantasy Football Last Second Decisions: Return of the Gronk?

Last week I said it was now or never for David Wilson. I was kind of right in two ways. First, he finally scored a touchdown and seemed to be well on his way to living up to his insane preseason hype. That was the “now”. Then came the “never”, as he got his neck banged up and exited the game with a score and just 16 rushing yards. He didn’t play on Thursday night and we...

Week 5 Observations

As an owner of David Wilson, I honestly have to say: "**** fantasy football." It's one thing to lose Michael Vick for a half, or Darren McFadden early in the first quarter of Week 4 - you're upset, and the timing is rarely good, but those players were discounted appropriately. With Wilson, you endured his benching in Week 1, terrible blocking and play calling...

Week 5 Fantasy Football Last Second Decisions: Now or Never For David Wilson

This is the week David Wilson doesn’t disappoint. It might be the week the New York Giants finally get a win, too. But more importantly, for depressed fantasy football owners who bought into Wilson’s super sleeper appeal, they just might finally be rewarded. I won’t be force-feeding Wilson down your throats, and I won’t be bumping him up to an insane spot in my fantasy rankings...

The Handcuff Report

Do you remember the days when teams each had one running back to carry the load from 1st through 3rd down?  Lumbering through the pain of worn out cartilage in their knees and treating pain killers like a food group. Now we have a world of 3rd down backs, pass blocking backs, full time, part time, short yardage (that use to be called a fullback) and some baby backs….yeah I’m...
