Packers To Split Eddie Lacy and James Starks 50/50

The Green Bay Packers are planning to use a 50/50 split between their running backs Eddie Lacy and James Starks. It appears to be a move to keep both backs healthy and fresh. Starks did not see a carry in week 4, but he played 29 snaps last week, while Lacy played 28. It's hard to tell if that's the Packers using a 50/50 split or the fact that the Packers were blowing out the Vikings...

2014 Fantasy Baseball Recap From the Champ

The 2014 We Talk Fantasy Sports Fantasy Baseball League featured extreme competitiveness amongst managers, as most WTFS Fantasy Leagues that I’ve been involved with usually do. What was strange in this particular league, was that there were ZERO trades completed. Two teams were at the forefront for the majority of the season, while the other 10 competed week in and week out for...

Last night, the Kansas City Royals became the 1st team in MLB history to sweep the top seeded team in the MLB Postseason. KC sent James Shields to the mound, who pitched 6 innings of 6 hit ball, before handing the ball to the baddest bullpen in the MLB, and Kelvin Herrera, Aaron Crow and Greg Holland sealed the game and preserved the sweep.

Fantasy Basketball Rankings - Top 50 Centers

I think we should expect to see a better season out of Chris Bosh, with LeBron James back in Cleveland.  Bosh took nearly 300 3pt shots last season, but that will hopefully change.  The closer he stays to the rim, the greater chance he has at grabbing an offensive rebound, as well as increasing his FG%.The return of Al Horford is huge for the Atlanta Hawks, Pau Gasol replaces...

Fantasy Basketball Rankings - Top 50 Guards

Kobe Bryant played just 6 games for the Los Angeles Lakers last season. This season, another year older (36), and without Pau Gasol for the first time since the 2007-08 season, it will be interesting to see how well Kobe Bryant returns. I guarantee, someone in your league will draft him very high because he is Kobe, just make sure that someone is not you!  I would suggest the...
