Antonio Brown
Happy Thanksgiving Week everyone! I hope the joys of watching football (and your fantasy teams), eating great food, and spending time with family is wonderful. I also hope everyone that is unable to be with their families for any reason has as good...

For most fantasy leagues only a few weeks remain, and with this being Thanksgiving week (i.e,, THREE games on Thursday!) you may need these flex rankings more than ever. Plenty of injuries and new faces to be considered once again especially...

Aaron Rodgers
Be prepared to set your fantasy lineups early this week! With three games on Thursday, a lot of big-name players are going to play before you fall asleep in a tryptophan-induced coma. Aaron Rodgers, Cam Newton, Tony Romo, Jay Cutler and Matthew...

Even though San Francisco's Blaine Gabbert did look capable against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 11, there's no disputing that the Arizona Cardinals will be a tough test for him and a depleted 49ers offense. The Cardinals have been a...

Mason Crosby
While Mason Crosby has struggled a bit this season, after a 22-point game in Week 11, he is the top-ranked fantasy kicker for Week 12. The Packers face the Bears on Thursday night, and plenty of points should go around in that game, which...

Week 11 was the epitome of devastating early and mid-game injuries especially to running backs. It was also a lesson in the importance of owning handcuffs towards the end of the season for your star running backs. Marshawn Lynch owners were...

Marshawn Lynch
Welcome to the Week 11 running back injury report. With four teams on a bye (Pittsburgh, New York Giants, Cleveland and New Orleans), the list is shorter than weeks past, but some big names have made the list. Also, keep in mind that running backs...

Antonio Gates (will he play?)
The Week 11 quarterback injury report is short and easy: four quarterbacks and all are ruled out. Ryan Fitzpatrick, Teddy Bridgewater and Aaron Rodgers are both on the injury report as probable, but both practiced in full and are on track to play....

Michael Floyd (Will he play?)
Per usual, the wide receiver injury report is the longest out of the group. The quarterback/tight end injury report and the running back injury report don't have nearly the list of players as the wide receivers. Also, the wide receivers contain...

As we enter the last week of the NFL and fantasy season with any teams on bye (Cleveland Browns, New York Giants, New Orleans Saints and Pittsburgh Steelers), we look at players who have tough matchups in Week 11. Some guys have higher upside this...

It’s Week 11 of the NFL season, also known as the last week with any teams on bye. Fantasy-wise this means this is the last week owners should have to worry about anything other than injuries (and there are a LOT) preventing them from...

Peyton Manning
The fantasy season is truly winding down and for many it is only a few more weeks before you are fulfilling your destiny to become a league champion. For others, you are biting your fingernails dangerously low each and every minute of the next...

Julian Edelman went down with a broken foot and several top fantasy wide receivers and tight ends are on bye in Week 11. So who should you start and who should you sit? Before we get to that, let’s see how some of my advice for Week 10 turned...

Marshawn Lynch
No DeAngelo Williams or Mark Ingram in Week 11, so which fantasy running back do you want to start and which should you consider leaving on your bench? Before I address that, here’s a quick look at some good and not-so-good calls in Week 10....

It’s Week 11 and time for another installment of which fantasy quarterback and defense/special teams (DSTs) you should start or sit. But first, I know you are really interested to see how I did in Week 10. Good Calls: Start Eli...

Week 11 is upon us and with it are some big-time fantasy wide receivers that are on bye. Antonio Brown, Odell Beckham Jr., and even the red-hot Brandin Cooks are all off this week. There are still plenty of great options for Week 11, but...

Darrelle Revis
Despite letting the Arizona Cardinals put up 39 points last week the Seattle Seahawks still finished seventh in fantasy points (standard scoring) among defense/special teams (DSTs) for Week 10. This week, the Seahawks host the San Francisco...

Cairo Santos
Maybe it's high time we start giving the kickers a little credit when it comes to fantasy success. Last week, 11 kickers scored double-digit fantasy points. Cairo Santos again led the way with 21 points in leagues that award...

Welcome to Week 11, the last week with any teams on a bye for the 2015 fantasy season. In this week, we get an outpouring of backup quarterbacks to join the ranks with Andrew Luck and Peyton Manning already ruled out for Week 11. In addition, Sam...

As the fantasy regular season winds down these final weeks can be truly detrimental to your playoff hopes. It may be the worst possible time to be without Antonio Brown, Ben Roethlisberger, Odell Beckham Jr., Drew Brees or Brandin Cooks,...

Charcandrick West
Pittsburgh is one of the four teams on bye in Week 11, so DeAngelo Williams can't be the No. 1-ranked fantasy running back. Then again after last week's disappointing showing (69 total yards), he might not have been in the first place....

Ranking tight ends for fantasy purposes isn't as easy as one may think. Slotting Rob Gronkowski in the top spot every week (except when he was on bye), is what makes the most sense, but that doesn't mean Gronk is going to...

Week 10 was rather unexceptional fantasy-wise, as aside from the Andrew Luck injury announcement there were no real surprises. At this point in the season your bench should have hand-cuffs, and upside players. There’s also the trade route to...

With only one more week of teams on a bye, the end of the fantasy football regular is in sight. For most fantasy leagues, playoffs start in Week 14, so there are officially only three weeks left in the regular season. Teams will be awarded the...
