Buccaneers Have High Hopes for Mike Evans

I could make an argument for Mike Evans being the biggest part of the phenomenon that was Johnny Manziel's career at Texas A&M. Things get much easier in the pocket if you have a giant, muscled up receiver to just heave the football to when you get in trouble. Evans was the go to guy for Johnny Football, especially when things were breaking down and the quarterback was...

Quicken Loans National - Power Rankings

Just say no to Tiger Woods. I know it might seem obvious, but I bet some reading this might have been thinking "The (arguably) Greatest of All Time is back, I've gotta play him!". Yes, he's back from a back injury, but he's not back from being a back-marker this season, so keep him seated. If this were Tiger Woods circa 2013, this wouldn't even be a discussion...

Movers and Losers - Introducing The Aggregate

Through mysticism, wisdom, arbitrary numbers pulled from thin air, and some serious number crunching, I assign each player a number, called The Aggregate, each week. That number, out of 100 with lower being better, is a collection of rankings and statistics that generally tell how a player has performed in the recent past and, for fantasy teams, can indicate whether is player is...

The Travelers Championship - Round 3 Round-Up

Buried under all the hype surrounding Tiger Woods' return to golf at the Quicken Loans National and USA playing Portugal in the World Cup, the Travelers Championship is quietly putting on an excellent golf tournament. This weeks tournament is proving to be a massive departure from Martin Kaymer's runaway victory at the U.S. Open, with 18 players within five strokes of 1st...

Nets and Cavs Discussing Marcus Thornton for Jarrett Jack Trade

The Brooklyn Nets and Cleveland Cavaliers are discussing a possible trade that would send Marcus Thornton to Cleveland and Jarrett Jack to Brooklyn.Brooklyn is fearful that they will lose Shaun Livingston to free agency because of their salary cap situation. The Nets are so far into the luxury tax, that the best contract they can offer to Livingston is a three year deal, worth...

2014 Fantasy Football - Quarterback Rankings

The 2013 NFL and Fantasy Football season was dominated by Peyton Manning and his 56 touchdowns (1 rushing).  Manning finished as the top fantasy player and the best QB by a long shot.  Drew Brees was second best with 42 total TDs (3 rushing).  Manning completed just 4 more passes than Brees, but went for 315 more yards.  They were the only 2 QBs to pass for more than 5,000...

2014 Fantasy Football - Tight End Rankings

According to our scoring system, just 9 tight ends put up 100+ points, with Jimmy Graham on the top with 199.75.  Tony Gonzalez was on that list and he is now retired, which leaves us with eight great TEs.  As Mike's early Mock Drafts have shown us, .Graham is a 1st round pick, Julius Thomas is usually gone by the 3rd round and you can get Dennis Pitta or Jason Witten...

2014 Fantasy Football - Wide Receiver Rankings

According to our scoring system, Calvin Johnson was the 3rd best WR in Fantasy Football last season.  His 84 receptions, 1,492 yards and 12 TDs were not enough to put him ahead of Demaryius Thomas or Brandon Marshall, but we all know Megatron is the best in the NFL and deserves top billing again in 2014.Pierre Garcon was a PPR machine in 2013 with 113 catches for 1346 yards...

Jamaal Charles scored 19 total touchdowns last season making him the top RB in fantasy football. Pierre Thomas, Danny Woodhead, Matt Forte and Darren Sproles all caught more passes than him, but Charles led all RBs in receiving yards and TDs.

The Travelers Championship - Round 2 Round-Up

I'll take my crow over medium, thank you, as Scott Langley leads by one over Harris English, K.J. Choi, and Michael Putnam. Picking Harris English and Scott Langley to lose is proving to be on par with picking Costa Rica and Chile to lose their most recent World Cup games. Sure, it looked like an easy enough call, but if stats and analysis could predict everything, sports would...

Mark Melancon Takes Over As Pirates Closer

After making the playoffs last season, there were big time expectations for the Pirates this season. Right now the Pirates are 35-37, and are currently in 4th place in the NL Central. Manger Clint Hurdle has shaken up the teams bullpen. Hurdle removed Jason Grilli as the teams closer, and has given the job to Mark Melancon.#494963387 / gettyimages.comSo far in 2014, the 37 year...

With your fantasy football drafts just around the corner as the NFL season is quickly approaching, you need to be paying attention to what team officials are saying. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers really want to use a rotation at running back this season.Doug Martin is clearly the starter, but the Bucs have a new front office and these guys did not draft Doug Martin.

Potential Trade Packages For Kevin Love

Heading into the 2014 NBA Draft, there is a lot of hype surrounding Kevin Love. Love has already let the Minnesota Timberwolves that he will be opting out of his contract at the end of the 2014-2015 season, making him a free agent. Knowing this, the T'Wolves are doing whatever they can to trade Love before the new season starts and there are several teams who are interested...

Sleeping Beauties - Holt-ing Down the Fort

Brock Holt has been a revelation out of the leadoff spot for the Red Sox over the last month or so, yet his ownership tag (40% in Y!) has been a little slow keeping up with his production. So far this year Holt has provided a very solid slash line of .329/.369/.452, along with 21 Runs, 15 RBI, and 5 SB over 155 AB. The power is still developing (just 1 HR), but he does have some...

The Travelers Championship - Round 1 Round-Up

My takeaway from round one of The Travelers Championship? That I'm pretty terrible at picking out who to avoid. I had suggested avoiding Harris English and Scott Langley, and while one round does not make a trend, it's looking like I could be eating crow come Sunday night. I'd feel better about it if I had Brendan Steele (-8) on the radar at all for this tournament, since...

NBA Mock Draft

With the 2014 NBA Draft just a week away, this will be our last and final mock draft.  More importantly, there has been recent rumors that Joel Embiid has indeed suffered a foot injury and it could even possibly be broken.  If this is true, there is no way the Cleveland Cavaliers can afford to draft him ahead of Andrew Wiggins or Jabari Parker.  I believe the Cavs end up trading...

Clayton Kershaw Tosses No-Hitter

Clayton Kershaw tossed a no hitter against the Colorado Rockies last night and was a throwing error away (Hanley Ramirez) from a perfect game with 15 strikeouts! Kershaw was masterful last night needing just 107 pitches (79 strikes) to defeat Troy Tulowitzki's Rockies. Tulo was the only Rockies hitter not strikeout, while Wilin Rosario struck out 3 times.

Get To Know Him - Jake Arrieta

Jake Arrieta is currently pitching in his 5th MLB season and before this season has never been successful. There was not much hype surrounding Arrieta coming into the league, as he was originally drafted in the 31st round by the Milwaukee Brewers in 2004 but decided to attend Texas Christian University. In 2007 Arrieta entered the draft again and was taken in the 5th round by the...

Risk and Reward - The Travelers Championship

Risk and reward is the maxim by which many play golf. Hit a snap hook into the forest? Chances are, most will consider wedging back out to the fairway, but proceed to try to hit a high draw through that tiny opening in the trees. At least, that's how I land so many double-bogeys on my card. In fantasy golf, the same concept exists. Take Matt Kuchar this week, for instance. He...

Patty Mills Headed To NYC?

Patty Mills has never been a household name but after his NBA Finals performance against the Heat, he's headed in the right direction. Mills averaged 15.2 minutes for the Spurs off the bench and scored 10.2 points a game. He really helped San Antonio close out the series with his performances in game 4 and 5.

The Travelers Championship - Power Rankings

I’d like to start out talking about the World Cup because, mostly, I’d just like to avoid talking about my picks for the U.S. Open. With Pinehurst knocking away Bubba Watson’s shots like Tim Howard breaking up Ghana’s scoring chances, I was left with little in the way of points by Sunday as my other picks slowly faded out of the top 10. This spring has been particularly harsh...
