Is anyone in...

Dallas Cowboys @ Green Bay Packers - Divisional Round

Without a doubt, this will be the best game of the weekend, and possibly the best game we'll see in the playoffs this year. Both teams have firepower on offense and both teams struggle on defense. It's Tony Romo, DeMarco Murray, Dez Bryant, and Jason Witten vs. Aaron Rodgers, Eddie Lacy, Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb. Whoever makes more plays and less mistakes will walk away...

Carolina Panthers @ Seattle Seahawks - Divisional Round

Let's get straight to the point - the Carolina Panthers had no business getting into the playoffs with a losing record. They also were trailing at half to an Arizona Cardinals team that was playing with a third string quarterback and using running backs they found off the street. Now they go into Seattle trying to knock off the defending Super Bowl champs. It won't happen. This will...

Baltimore Ravens @ New England Patriots - Divisional Round

I can almost guarantee you that Tom Brady and Patriot fans were hoping to see the Steelers knock off the Ravens in the Wild Card round, but unfortunately that did not happen. This will be the 4th time since 2010 that the Ravens and Patriots will meet in the playoffs and all the games will be played in Foxboro. Apparently playing Tom Brady and Bill Belichick on the road doesn't...

Detroit Lions @ Dallas Cowboys - Wild Card Weekend

The Dallas Cowboys are heading into the NFL playoffs as the hottest team in the league. They finished the year 4-0 and have avergaed over 41 points per game over that span. The Detroit Lions do have a great defense but recently have given up 30+ points to the Patriots and Packers. Detroit is lucky enough to have Ndamukong Suh this weekend who was originally suspended but won his...

Cincinnati Bengals @ Indianapolis Colts - Wild Card Weekend

The day Andrew Luck has a running game, is the day I'll be a believer in the Colts. I was on the verge of becoming a believer when Ahmad Bradshaw was turning into a fantasy stud once again, however with his season ending injury, the Colts run game is non existent and the team is one dimensional. However the Colts are running into a Bengals team who has made the playoffs the last...

Baltimore Ravens @ Pittsburgh Steelers - Wild Card Weekend

There is nothing more frustrating than injuries ruining a teams chance at making a run to the Super Bowl, but the Steelers will face that reality as they host the Ravens without their star running back Le'Veon Bell. Pittsburgh will be without Bell who suffered a hyperextended knee on Sunday night, and they will now hand the running back duties over to Josh Harris. Expect newly...

Arizona Cardinals @ Carolina Panthers - Wild Card Weekend

If this game was taking place in early November, then there is no question about who would be the favorite. The Cardinals were 8-1 with a healthy Carson Palmer and Andre Ellington, while the Panthers were 3-2-1 and struggling mightily on defense. However it's now the first weekend in January and there is no possible way I see the Cardinals beating the Panthers in Carolina. View...

Charlotte Hornets Al Jefferson Out 4 Weeks

The Charlotte Hornets will be without Big Al Jefferson for the next 4 weeks with a groin injury.  He leads the team in points per game at 18 and rebounds per game with 8.2.  The Hornets will now turn to Cody Zeller at center, and while he has only hit double digit points twice in the month of December, we all know he is capable of scoring, and we saw him do that during his short...

NFL Mock Draft - Christmas & New Years Edition

In our last NFL Mock Draft, the draft started with two defensive players.  This time, the newly crowned Heisman Trophy winner, Marcus Mariota and last seasons winner, Jameis Winston, kick things off.  Oregon and Florida State go head-to-head on New Years Day in the Rose Bowl and the College Football Playoff. However, I think the Tennessee Titans could easily go after Leonard...

End of Season Rankings - Fantasy Football QBs

Andrew Luck and Peyton Manning may have been the top QBs in the fantasy football all season long, but they choose a bad time to have some stinkers! Drew Brees completed 46 more passes than any other QB which helped offset his 14 interceptions in PPR leagues.  Leading the league in completions helped him jump ahead of Big Ben by just 36 yards for the most passing yards this season...

End of Season Rankings - Fantasy Football TEs

Gronk is back and will undoubtedly be a last 1st/early 2nd round pick in 2015.  He saw one more target this season than Dez Bryant and finished with just 97 less yards, and 2 less touchdowns.   I personally started my undefeated season by drafting Jimmy Graham in the 1st round, but I think next season I will go WR/WR to start.  Graham is/was great at times, but TEs catch...

End of Season Rankings- Fantasy Football RBs

With the 1st pick in the 2015 Fantasy Football draft, every owner selected...Le'Veon Bell, RB, Pittsburgh Steelers.  If I am selecting at the end of the 1st round in 2015,  I won't have a RB on my team until the 3rd round. DeMarco Murray and Marshawn Lynch were the only RBs to rush for 10+ TDs this season, down for 5 backs in 2013, and 7 in 2012.  That trend also continued...

End of Season Rankings - Fantasy Football WRs

It was a near sweep across all stats for Antonio Brown leading WRs in targets, receptions, and yards, but his 12 touchdowns could not top Dez Bryant (14) and Jordy Nelson (13).   For a 3rd season in a row, we have seen more WRs catch 10+ TDs.  In 2012 we had 9, 2013 saw 10 and this season we had 11 receivers catch double digit touchdowns.  A trend that should continue into...

Let's just get this out of the way.  Peyton Manning, Aaron Rodgers and Andrew Luck KILLED their fantasy owners.  Who saw that coming?!
