DraftKings Week 13 Strategy: Expert Lineup Analysis

 Hi All, Well it’s getting down to crunch time for me.  With sub-par performances from Brandon Marshall (6 pts) and Mike Evans (14 pts), I once again fell to Dan in our year-long H2H competition.  Riding 20+ point performances from Rashad Jennings, Matt Forte, Josh Gordon and TY Hilton (congrats to TY by the way on the birth of his daughter), Dan put a 17 point beat down on...

Arizona Cardinals off Week 11 failures list, key players on Super Bowl contenders aren’t

Eleven weeks into the 2014 NFL season, the league is starting to take shape. It’s easier and easier to see what teams are contenders and which ones are just not ready for primetime. How did each team get to their current point? In part, it was because of the performance, good or bad, of some key players and coaches. Some helped their team, while others hurt the squad. Who fell...

Fantasy Football: Mike Evans, Julius Thomas Among Week 11 Studs, Duds

We’re getting to the point where it’s time to start expecting the unexpected. Sure, there were plenty of fantasy performances Sunday that weren’t surprising, Aaron Rodgers’ monster numbers and Pierre Garcon’s flop among them. But if you thought Jay Cutler would score more fantasy points in a snowstorm than Peyton Manning would in a dome against the St. Louis Rams, well...

Top 10 Mike Williams replacements

Mike Williams being traded away was not surprising, but it did serve two important purposes for the Buccaneers. They got rid of a locker room distraction with health concerns and they added another pick in the upcoming draft. However, it does create a need for the Bucs, now missing a wide receiver to complement Vincent Jackson and new tight end Brandon Myers in the passing game....
