Carolina came up short in its quest to win a Super Bowl, but the three-time defending NFC South champion is very much a threat to play on Super Sunday again. New Orleans still has the offense to be a contender, but the Saints’ success could...

At first Dan Quinn made it look too easy. The former Seattle defensive coordinator stepped straight from a Super Bowl defense to a 5–0 start as a rookie head coach. Every move made to fix the floundering Falcons worked — until nothing...

There was a time when the tight end position in the NFL served as a sixth lineman who could also run a route to catch the occasional pass. My how the times have changed. Today, tight ends are key cogs of high-powered offenses – often...

When these two NFC South rivals last met just two weeks ago, it did not end well for the Atlanta Falcons (7-7), as they were pounded by the Panthers 38-0 in Charlotte. The Falcons hope that Week 16 will result in a completely different outcome in...

The Carolina Panthers (12-0) may have gotten a little complacent last week, just edging out a struggling Saints team to keep their perfect season intact. That said, a win is still a win, and last week's narrow victory also enabled Ron...

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...

The Atlanta Falcons (6-3) are hoping that a much-needed bye week will be the key to getting their season back on track. After a 5-0 start, Atlanta’s high-octane offense suddenly hit a wall, resulting in losses in three of its past ...

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...

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?...

Julio Jones' hands are some amazing things. The Falcons receiver made an incredible catch over a defender in the game against the Giants. The scary part? Jones makes it look effortless. Jones knows how to rise up (no pun intended).
