For all the talk about the Pittsburgh Steelers being the team you don't want to face in the playoffs following their 45-10 rout of the Indianapolis Colts, the Cincinnati Bengals know if they defeat the Steelers this Sunday at home, they'll...

Thanksgiving Day was just the appetizer for Week 12 NFL and fantasy action. For the first time since Week 3 all 32 teams are in action, which means we still have 13 games to go between Sunday and Monday. Fantasy-wise, it also means that you...

While there are plenty of things to be thankful for, one of them for football (and fantasy) fans is three games on Thanksgiving Day! And speaking of these three, oh-so-tasty matchups, what is a fantasy owner to do? While some decisions, like...

Is it just me or is the NFL and fantasy season flying by? Can you believe that it’s Thanksgiving already? The really good news is that since we are now in Week 12, every team has had their bye. So that means from here on out we have a...

It seems the quarterbacking situation of the 127th meeting of "The Blue Collar Bowl" between the Cleveland Browns and Pittsburgh Steelers may be backwards. If the season ended today, the Steelers (5-4) would make the...

What an interesting week we just witnessed in the NFL and fantasy! Who had the Falcons losing to the 49ers and who had Devonta Freeman only getting 12 yards on 12 carries? Thank goodness he caught a touchdown! And what about the Titans beating...

What a terrible week in the NFL, and likewise fantasy, for injuries. Just take a look at these names — Le’Veon Bell, Matt Forte, Brandon Marshall and Steve Smith Sr. —  all got hurt and weren’t able to finish their...

If the Cincinnati Bengals defeat the Pittsburgh Steelers this Sunday they will almost assuredly win the AFC North. Standing 2 1/2 games ahead of the Steelers, the 6-0 Bengals have been so healthy they have yet to make a roster change. Know...

Anything can happen on any given Sunday, we all know that and the unpredictability of each game is what makes playing fantasy football so fun. But wouldn’t it be nice to look ahead and see what is going to happen in Week 8 of the NFL season?...

Put your hand up if you had Gary Barnidge scoring more fantasy points last week than Rob Gronkowski? Anyone? How about Josh McCown throwing for 457 yards and two touchdowns? Or how about Adrian Peterson scoring zero fantasy points? Ah ha! Got you...

It seems as if every game the Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens play this season is "must win." Granted, nobody is getting mathematically eliminated from a playoff berth after this game, but the Ravens simply cannot begin 0-4...

Oh, the woes of rooting for a popular, historically successful team! Sure, the Pittsburgh Steelers have sold out every non-strike game since 1972, get on television a lot, and have won the most Super Bowls. But with that success and...
