Week 12 of the fantasy football season gets started with a trio of Thanksgiving games that could see some big numbers from a couple of running backs. Le’Veon Bell should fare well against the Colts at home, while Ezekiel Elliott’s...

Travis Kelce
There’s not a lot of separation at the top of the fantasy tight end rankings for Week 12. Any of the top six could make a case for being No. 1.   Once again, one of the main things to keep an eye on at the position entering this week...

The Week 12 fantasy wide receiver rankings will look a little different because of one significant injury, but there’s still plenty to like as well. Even with the loss of A.J. Green, the position remains strong at the top with Antonio Brown...

Matt Bryant
Through 10 games, the kicker with the most fantasy points (depending on league scoring) is Matt Bryant. He was on bye last week, so he wasn’t a part of an injury-marred Week 11 that also saw kickers missing at a record rate – there were...

It may be a gamble, but the Miami defense/special teams is the No. 1-ranked fantasy DST for Week 12. Last week, the Dolphins were a popular streaming option against Los Angeles and although they didn’t rack up the fantasy points, they did a...

No teams are on bye in Week 12, but one significant injury and matchups have a big impact on the fantasy quarterback rankings. Four of the top five are playing on the road, which is always tough. Ben Roethlisberger, in particular, has vastly...

Jarvis Landry
As has been the case for most of this fantasy season, wide receivers make up the majority of the injury report for Week 11. Add to that four teams on bye and it may be another tough week for owners to find enough serviceable starting options....

Welcome to the last week of the fantasy season with four teams on a bye. The Atlanta Falcons, New York Jets, Denver Broncos and San Diego Chargers aren't playing this week, so fantasy owners will need to find replacements in their starting...

By this point in the fantasy season the running back landscape usually bears no resemblance to the preseason rankings. Injuries, depth chart changes and other various factors seem to affect RBs more than any other position in fantasy. Owners often...

As the fantasy playoffs approach, it's more important than ever to grab those last few wins. Nobody wants to be left on the outside looking in because of a dud two-point performance. Make sure to check your lineup before the games start and put...

Bye weeks in the NFL are starting to wrap up, with just six teams on bye over the next three weeks, which is music to the ears of many fantasy owners. For quarterback purposes, the only relevant players that are off in Week 11 are Matt Ryan and...

Normally Rob Gronkowski would be far and away the No.1 fantasy tight end for Week 11 based on the matchup with San Francisco. However, Gronkowski reportedly suffered a punctured lung in Sunday night’s game against Seattle, putting his...

Only four teams on bye in Week 11, but the wide receiver position will be missing one of the best in Julio Jones, as well as several other top fantasy options in Demaryius Thomas, Emmanuel Sanders and Brandon Marshall. However, there is still...

Week 10 of the fantasy football season certainly finished with a bang didn’t it? I mean could you have asked for anymore production from the running back position? In all honesty Ezekiel Elliot was one of my least favorite players since I...

Arizona has recorded at least one sack on defense in every game so far this season, which is something a fantasy owner looks for from their defense/special teams (DST) unit. After not allowing an opposing DST to score double-digit fantasy points (...

Adam Vinatieri has the second-most fantasy points among all kickers, and the guy in the No. 1 spot (Matt Bryant) is on bye in Week 11. The Packers/Titans game in Week 10 was high scoring, and with the Colts’ defense struggling, it is possible...

Tom Brady was the top-ranked fantasy quarterback for Week 10, however, he didn't throw a touchdown (thanks, LeGarrette Blount) and he threw his first interception of the season. The good news is that New England faces San Francisco this Sunday...
