Boys Making Noise in the Preseason

Every year, players dominate the preseason, but rarely do they make an impact in fantasy land. However, with so many teams running with a committee in the backfield and holding on to those extra receivers to spread the field, some of these guys might actually be able to help during the regular season.Click to see Jadeveon Clowney highlights on NFL.comQuarterbacksBlake Bortles -...

Le'Veon Bell's Fantasy Football Value on the Decline?

Rumor has it, most likely started by Le'Veon Bell himself, that the Pittsburgh Steelers are going to hand LeGarrette Blount the goalline carries this season.  The Steelers also added Dri Archer via the NFL Draft out of Kent State.  Can Le'Veon Bell match his rookie numbers (13 games) of 244 carries for 860 yards, plus 45 receptions 399 yards and 8 TDs?#459727037 / gettyimages...

New York Jets Fantasy Football Outlook

The New York Jets added Michael Vick, Chris Johnson and Eric Decker to their roster this offseason, in an effort to put some points on the scoreboard.  Vick will most likely ride the bench most of the season behind Geno Smith, but Johnson and Decker could be the playmakers the Jets offense have missed since LaDainian Tomlinson and Braylon Edwards back in 2010.  Last season...

Risk and Reward - The Wyndham Championship

Like the setting sun at the end of the PGA Championship, the full PGA season is coming to an end. There's five total tournaments left, so players with few starts left, burn 'em if you got 'em because you can't take them with you. Not that there's a whole lot of players this week that might threaten to run you out of starts, but if you've been running Snedeker or Haas often this year...

Buffalo Bills Fantasy Football Outlook

The Buffalo Bills were the 2nd best rushing team in the NFL in 2013, averaging 144 yards per game.  But the loss of rookie QB E.J. Manuel to 3 separate knee injuries led the Bills passing attack to just 193 yards per game (28th) thanks to below average play from Thad Lewis and Jeff Tuel.  This offseason, the Bills added Sammy Watkins and Mike Williams to bolster their WR depth...

Power Rankings - Wyndham Championship

Like most tournaments post-major, the pickings are slim this week. There are a few solid choices, but expect their price to be high and for all of the competition to be playing them. If you're behind, navigating this week will be crucial as the season starts to come to a close. If you're ahead, you may want to consider saving some starts on the front-runners if you're low, as there...

ESPN Gridiron Challenge Eliminator

Gridiron Challenge, our salary-cap based game, is back for 2014, but with a handful of changes and wrinkles that should add to the weekly fantasy football fun. The game itself is relatively simple: Build a roster of two quarterbacks, two running backs, two wide receivers, a tight end, a kicker and a team defense/special teams, and get points for their performances.  And compared...

Kansas City Royals, 1st Place, Same Sentence II

Back on June 18th, the original Kansas City Royals 1st Place, Same Sentence post was created.  At that time the Royals have just won their 9th straight game and 12 of 15 in June.  Last night, they were at it again, beating the Oakland Athletics and going up .5 game on the Detroit Tigers in the American League Central.  This on the same day they acquired Josh Willingham from the...

Miami Dolphins Fantasy Football Outlook

The Miami Dolphins put together their best season in 2013 since the 2008 season. However after a 3-0 start, they finished 8-8 and failed to miss the playoffs for the 5th straight season. Miami didn't really play well on either side of the ball despite finishing .500. They ranked 26th in total offense and 21st in total defense. The future is bright for the Dolphins though, as quarterback...

Justin Verlander Watch - Shoulder Injury

The Detroit Tigers ace Justin Verlander was forced to leave his start tonight after the first inning due to soreness in his right shoulder (pitching shoulder). It appeared as if Verlander was pitching hurt the entire first inning, as he allowed four hits, two walks and 5 runs. Verlander has never missed a start in his career due to an injury, but that could be in jeopardy moving...

Manny Machado Watch - Knee Injury

Scary scene in Baltimore tonight as the Orioles hosted the New York Yankees. Third baseman Manny Machado fell to the ground in pain after grounding out to Derek Jeter. Machado fell to the ground, holding his left knee, the same knee that was operated on last season. However he was able to limp off the field with some assistance.Tweets about "manny machado"

Movers and Losers - Wyndham Championship

I hope you've got some starts left for McIlroy this season, as he's showing no signs of letting up. He's not even playing this week and he's probably got a chance to win. Try not to think I'm too crazy though when you see my top 10 overall, as, somehow, his finishes in the total accrual don't get him there. Really though, that was probably one of the most exciting finishes to a major...

New England Patriots Fantasy Football Outlook

The New England Patriots were once again a dominant force in the AFC, going 12-4 and earning the second seed in the conference. They scored the third most points in the league, only beat by the Broncos and Bears (by one total point). It was an unconventional year from a fantasy perspective however, as Bill Belichick used a running back by committee system with Stevan Ridley, LeGarrette...

Detroit Lions Fantasy Football Outlook

Last season, Kris Durham was the Detroit Lions 2nd best pass catcher at the WR position, with just 38 receptions. Joique Bell and Reggie Bush each caught 50 passes out of the backfield. Add Golden Tate to the mix, and now Matthew Stafford can look to both sides of the field. If Stafford can utilize Tate the way he did Nate Burleson back in 2011 (73 rec 757 yds), he could...

Chicago Bears Fantasy Football Outlook

The Chicago Bears set the bar pretty high for themselves in 2014, after finishing second in the NFL in total points scored in 2013.  Even with a mix of Jay Cutler and Josh McCown under center, Matt Forte, Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery all had career years.  Forte rushed for a career high 1339 yards and caught 74 passes, scoring 12 touchdowns, Marshall caught a career...

Power Rankings - PGA Championship

The last player to win three tournaments in three starts was none other than Tiger Woods. There's only been three other players to do so since 1980: Tom Watson, David Duval, and Vijay Singh. Will Rory McIlroy make it four? Valhalla plays a little bit more, dare I say, forgiving than Firestone, with wider fairways and less punitive rough. Couple that with the high temperatures and...

Aaron Rodgers played in just 9 games for the Green Bay Packers last season, well really just 8. On Monday Night Football against the Chicago Bears, Rodgers attempted just 2 passes before being removed from the game. But even with Matt Flynn and Scott Tolzien under center for half the season, rookie Eddie Lacy still managed to rush for over 1100 yards, scoring 11 TDs, and Jordy...
