After two weeks of a relatively small injury report for fantasy owners to digest, Week 3 is back to analyzing what seems like half the league. Week 2 was a brutal one, especially for running backs.   However, most of those running back...

Fantasy owners were lucky to escape Week 2 with their starting two running backs still healthy. However, unlike the wide receivers, which are banged up and may or may not play, most of the injured running backs have already been ruled out. This...

With two weeks in the books, fantasy owners can start looking at trends to see how players fare against opposing defenses. Fantasy rosters are going to be a little different this week due to the amount of injuries that occurred in Week 2, so it...

Even though Seattle is still looking for its first defensive touchdown of the season, the Seahawks remains as the top-ranked fantasy defense/special team s (DST) for Week 3. In Week 1, they allowed 10 points; in Week 2, they allowed nine points....

Drew Brees
Drew Brees is typically a wise fantasy quarterback starting option regardless of where he plays, but there's even more reason to like him in Week 3. He had an amazing Week 1, throwing for 423 yards and a touchdown, and while Week 2 wasn...

So did every fantasy-relevant running back go down with an injury in Week 2 or it did it just seem that way? In case you missed the carnage here are the main casualties: Adrian Peterson (torn meniscus), Doug Martin (hamstring), Arian Foster (...

Raise your hand if you thought after two weeks Trey Burton would have more fantasy points among tight ends than Rob Gronkowski, Zach Ertz, Coby Fleener or Gary Barnidge. That somewhat sums up how the story has played out at the position thus far...

Week 3 has nearly arrived, which means it another round of fantasy wide receiver rankings. I am not embarrassed to say that these and other positional rankings get tweaked up until kickoff so if you are reading this before the games...

When it comes to your Week 3 fantasy football preparations, don’t overlook the usefulness of flex rankings. While it’s not a straightforward “star or sit” column or article, these rankings can help you answer any tough...

Depending on league scoring, Dan Bailey is the No. 2 fantasy kicker so far this season. While two weeks is a small sample size, he has historically been great for fantasy owners. In 2015, he only missed two field goals. He has yet to miss one in...

Week 2 Left many fantasy owners scratching their heads or throwing their arms up in the air. Like Week 1 we saw disappointment on Sunday with superstars such as Antonio Brown, A.J. Green, Andrew Luck, Todd Gurley (second straight week), Russell...

Week 2 was absolutely brutal in terms of fantasy-relevant running back injuries. Fantasy football owners likely had to deal with at least one of their running backs leaving the game early (and not giving them a lot of points before they left...

Week 2 for fantasy football was as unpredictable as the game itself. The one matchup that was expected to be a high-scoring shootout (Giants/Saints) yielded one offensive touchdown. Six teams did put up at least 34 points, but certainly not what...

With Week 1 in the books, fantasy football owners have a better feel for their team. Owners could see how the games unfolded, how players were used, and how defenses looked. While it is a small sample size, it makes the rankings for Week 2 slightly...

The Los Angeles Rams defense/special teams (DST), which was one of the most appealing fantasy options for Week 1, put up zero points in a 28-0 loss to San Francisco on Monday night. Now the Rams face Seattle on the road in Week 2. Meanwhile, the...

Dwayne Allen
Rob Gronkowski’s surprising Week 1 no show obviously cast a long shadow over last week’s fantasy tight end rankings. And as it stands right now, his status for Week 2 is unclear. The uncertainly is enough to move Gronk from the top...

Week 1 was not a good opening statement for running backs from a fantasy perspective. Only two backs managed to rush for more than 100 yards and only five managed to score more than 20 fantasy points in a standard league.   So what will...

Week 1 continued the tradition of wide receivers running the show in terms of fantasy points in most contests. Unfortunately, several top-flight targets also got hurt, including Keenan Allen, Demaryius Thomas and Sammy Watkins. Those injuries...
