Fantasy Premier League Week 9

Okay, okay, so maybe I shouldn’t have pumped Costa too emphatically. In my defense, the bold lettering on the one part was Keith’s idea. Costa was always an injury risk. Mourinho said that playing him too much was a bad idea, and he was played too much. My advice was to get Diego Costa, which didn’t turn out well for Week 8, but, remember, you didn’t have to follow it. I...

Who Dat in the Saints Backfield

How I Acquired LeSean McCoy & Matt Forte

In my $300 buy in fantasy football league, I drafted last in a 12 man league. I went with a strategy that clearly backfired. I drafted A.J. Green and Brandon Marshall with back to back picks. Not only have the both of them dealt with injuries early on in the NFL season, but it really left me with a WEAK group of running backs. Luckily, Ahmad Bradshaw has been scoring touchdowns...
