My Third Annual (Completely Unsolicited) NFL Awards

Over the past two years, I’ve been making picks for the NFL’s annual self-congratulatory awards ceremony.   In my first season picking the awards, I pretty much nailed it.  Then again, it was a fairly easy year to pick the winners.  Last season, though, there was a great deal of question surrounding the candidates heading […]

Fantasy Football Keeper Report

It’s week 16.  So, if your team is still playing for something, that means you’re in the fantasy championships in your league and actually have something to play for.  Congrats!  But, that also means your roster is probably pretty much set so there’s no point going to the wire one last time. So, instead of […]

Pulling the Plug: the NFL’s Dirtiest (Non)Secret

On Wednesday, the Washington Redskins announced that franchise quarterback, Robert Griffin III, was going to be benched for the remainder of the season… which ignited a firestorm.  The usually unfiltered John Madden said the move was “baloney” and that failing to put the best team possible on the field each Sunday “affects the integrity of […]

Fantasy Football Week in Review

Week 13 Houston, you have a problem.  I mean, seriously… you just got SWEPT BY THE JAGS ON THE SEASON.  Swept.  By the Jags.  See, those are phrases which should NOT appear together in the same sentence.  At least this time it wasn’t at home, so your fans weren’t there to boo you.  So… yep… […]

Fantasy Football Week in Review

Week 11 Whew!  What a Monday night game, huh?!  I suppose I should address the non-call at the end of the game.  No, it wasn’t pass interference.  It was, however, face guarding and should have given the Pats five more yards and an untimed down.  The mistake came when the official called for pass interference.

Fantasy Football Week in Review

Week 10 – The NOT Dolphin-Safe Edition Okay, I missed another week.  Snubbs had an awesome mid-season report card to fill the blog void on here, and I was just baffled enough by the whole mess in Miami to decide not to post.  Meanwhile, I missed the opportunity to rip the hell out of NFL.com […]

Mid-Year – NFL (AFC) Predictions Review

Mid-Year – NFL (AFC) Predictions Review AFC West – The Chiefs seem to be the surprise of the NFL this season. They already matched my prediction of 9 wins and they still have 7 games left to play. They have to play both Denver and San Diego twice, which could give them some problems, but […]

Mid-Year – NFL (NFC) Predictions Review

Mid-Year – NFL (NFC) Predictions Review NFC West – So far things are shaking up as I was expecting. Seattle and San Francisco are leading the division, with Arizona hovering around .500 and the Rams in last. I predicted the Rams to amass only 3 wins and they already do have 3, but in their […]

Fantasy Football Week in Review

Week 8 Week 8 was one of the most unpredictable weeks in recent memory.  If you compared how your players actually performed versus how they were predicted to perform, you might have been a little shocked by the outcomes.  For example, in one league I benched RG3, who was expected to put up 25+ against […]

Fantasy Basketball C’s

C 1. Marc Gasol (MEM) – Marc Gasol is very consistent in every category and also a very safe pick. He is everything that you would want in a big man. He rebounds, scores, blocks shots, and passes tremendously. He also doesn’t have any injury concerns that you should be worried about. With Randolph aging […]

Fantasy Basketball PF’s

PF 1. Kevin Love (MIN) – When healthy, Kevin Love is a potential top 5 fantasy player. He is a big man who can shoot threes and rebound. Generally big men either, most likely, rebound or, rarely, shoot threes, but never both. Kevin Love is one of the best rebounders in the league and he […]

Fantasy Football Week in Review

Week 7 Week 6 was a MONSTER week for adds and drops in the WR position… and yet I didn’t blog about it.  Sorry, folks, my work schedule completely got in the way.  Week 7′s fallout looks to make for a big week of adds and drops in the RB department.  Couple that with a […]

Fantasy Basketball SF’s

SF 1. LeBron James (MIA) – Compared to other SF’s, LeBron was in the top 5 in every major category (PTS, REB, AST, STL, BLK, FTM, FG) last year. He will provide amazing production in every single category. There really isn’t anything he can’t do and there isn’t anything that people should be worried about […]

Fantasy Basketball SG’s

SG 1. James Harden (HOU) – I think that Harden will be the 3rd best fantasy player this year. He is very good in every aspect of basketball. He can get to the rim, shoot the three, pass the ball, get to the free throw line, rebound the ball, and do everything in between. His […]

Fantasy Football Week in Review

Week 5 Weeks four through six are great for assessing players in fantasy football, because you have a large enough data set, in most cases, to have a real sense of a player’s worth.  For example, last week I was high on my own Carolina Panthers’ defense.  Why?  Well, even though they lost the game […]

Week 4 Yes, okay, I took last week off.  I’m so much of a Panthers homer that I took their bye week off.  Okay, in reality, last week was kind of a lame week for adds and drops.  Not a lot happened, except the 7 remaining owners of Josh Freeman cutting ties with the now […]

Week 2 – The What Was Cleveland Thinking Edition And, just like that, Cleveland did the predictable: they sabotaged their season.  What was Cleveland thinking?  Well… um… your guess is as good as mine.  There will be some fantasy fallout, though.  For the short run, for example, I’d shelve Trent on your Bench while he […]
