Monday Night Glory - Broncos vs Raiders

Unlike last week, when we had great games and finishes around the NFL, Week 3 seemed like it was blowout after blowout, minus the Miami Dolphins win over the Atlanta Falcons.  The Denver Broncos and Peyton Manning continued to make opposing defenses looked confused as Peyton connected on 32 of his 37 pass attempts for 374 yards and 3 scores while the team rushed for over 160 yards...

The Cleveland Browns are not even a full week removed from traded their starting running back and are already listening to trade offers on their top WR Josh Gordon. This after a 10 catch, 19 target, 146 yard TD game against the Minnesota Vikings.

Thinking 'Bout Thursday - Eagles vs Chiefs

Last night was a classic tale of a football team beating themselves.  The Philadelphia Eagles looked like the better team, offensively (for most of the night), but turnovers will kill you.  First Damaris Johnson muffs a punt and the Chiefs recover and turn it into 3 points, then Michael Vick follows that up with a Pick Six and the Chiefs jump out to a QUICK 10-0 lead.  The Eagles...

Thursday Night Football has just turned into tragedy for the Philadelphia Eagles and Fantasy Owners everywhere!  LeSean McCoy was last seen rolling on the ground grabbing what looked like his shin and he did not look comfortable!  He was able to walk off/run off, but it did not look good.  More to come, STAY TUNED!  Half time will have a very important report!Tweets about "...

Browns Trade Trent Richardson to Colts

In a rare NFL midseason trade, the Cleveland Browns have shipped Trent Richardson to the Indianpolis Colts for a 1st round draft pick!  This INSTANTLY makes Richardson more valuable, as soon as he learn the Colts playbook that is!  Ahmad Bradshaw must not be healthy or something, but this is a great move for the Colts who can easily make the playoffs this season.  Rumor has...

Top 3 Defenses for NFL Week 3

Seattle Seahawks  This pick is an absolute no-brainer. Here in the early going, the Seahawks' defensive unit has lived up to expectations and been the most dominant in the entire NFL. In consecutive victories over Carolina and San Francisco to start the season, Defensive Coordinator Dan Quinn's crew has allowed a mere 10 points and an average of 230 yards per game. The Seahawks...

NFL Player Eliminator Week 3

I had a much better go at it in Week 2 with Peyton Manning, LeSean McCoy, DeSean Jackson, and the Oakland Raiders defense leading me to 101 points.  How did you do?This is the perfect week to pick Matt Ryan (0.6%) as your QB.  The Dolphins aren't that tough of a matchup and without Steven Jackson, Ryan could attempt 45+ pass attempts!  Peyton Manning (32.9%) and Russell Wilson...

Steven Jackson - Could Misst 2-4 Weeks

The Atlanta Falcons could be without newly acquire RB Steven Jackson for the next month, due to a thigh injury he suffered in Week 2.  Jackson had stud fantasy season written all over him in the Falcons prolific offense, but this injury will force Atlanta to rely on Jacquizz Rodgers and Jason Snelling in the backfield.  Rodgers COULD be a beast in this offense if he can catch some...

Colts Lose Vick Ballard for Season

The Indianapolis Colts will be without second year RB Vick Ballard for the remainder of the season after suffering a knee injury during practice.  Ballard was a favorite of ours after his 814 yard rookie campaign.  Ahmad Bradshaw is now the Colts #1 RB and Donald Brown will play the vulture role.  If Bradshaw is healthy, he can really put up huge numbers with the pass attack...

Thinking 'Bout Thursday - Patriots vs Jets

The New England Patriots should have won this game by a lot more than 3 points, but Tom Brady got no help from Aaron Dobson, despite the TD, which by the way was a beautiful play to watch unfold.  A couple drives later, Dobson dropped a pass while running towards the sideline and on the very next play, drops a deep pass that he had before falling to the ground.  There is a silver...

Danny Amendola to Miss Week 2

The New England Patriots will most likely be without WR Danny Amendola for Week 2 against the New York Jets.  Amendola was seen limping around in Week 1, left the game, but was able to return and finish playing.  Being that the Patriots are playing on 4 days rest, this is probably the best move to prolong Amendola's ability to be playing come December and the Playoffs.  Even...
