 Week 4 in fantasy football brought us more Devonta Freeman, Jeremy Hill's triumphant return, Arian Foster's season debut, and disappointing numbers from stud wide receivers Antonio Brown, Julio Jones and Odell Beckham Jr....

Odell Beckham Jr.
Last week left plenty to be desired by most of the top-tiered fantasy wide receivers. Antonio Brown without his starting quarterback looked pedestrian, Julio Jones wasn't needed in Atlanta, as Devonta Freeman opted to tear it up once again....

I think it’s safe to say that Le'Veon Bell is back and that he is going to be a permanent fixture in the top three of these fantasy running backs rankings for the foreseeable future. That’s even with Michael Vick as his...

Antonio Gates
So Rob Gronkowski is back this week and he takes his rightful place as the No. 1-ranked tight end. But the rest of the tight end rankings are really as clear as mud. Can you trust supposed studs like Travis Kelce or Greg Olsen on a week-to-week...

Devonta Freeman
It’s almost depressing to think that in a blink of an eye a quarter of the NFL season has come and gone. The good thing is that after four weeks of hard-fought action we are starting to see who the contenders and pretenders are on the...

I am back with another Patience or Panic post. I did not write one last week because the players I mentioned in my initial post carried over into Week 4. Last week I recommended cutting bait with Andre Johnson and Week 4 only validated the...

​Week 4 left fantasy owners with an encore performance from Devonta Freeman forcing himself into the front of the running back herd in literally two weeks. This week we start with a bang. There is a DFS scandal (If you want to call it that),...

Just like that, the fantasy football season is a quarter of the way over. It seems like it was just yesterday that we were still working on preseason content, talking up the likes of Ryan Tannehill, Andre Johnson, Owen Daniels and more. And now,...

Peyton Manning
Another week in the NFL has come and gone and as usual there were some pleasant surprises and of course, some guys who you were banking on carrying your fantasy team to glory this week, that instead completely sucked and crushed any hope you had of...

Andrew Luck
Welcome to Week 4, where more big-name fantasy quarterbacks are finding their way onto the injury report. First, we lost Tony Romo. Next, Drew Brees and Jay Cutler did not play in Week 3. Then Ben Roethlisberger went down in Week 3 and it will be a...

As we head into Week 4, it's another week with a full injury report for fantasy owners to digest. Two teams (Patriots, Titans) are on bye, so that's a week for players on those teams to heal. However, plenty of other players are on the...

Arian Foster
As has been the case this season, the fantasy owners need to pay particular attention to the lengthy list of injured running backs. There’s some good news with the potential return of some key ball carriers, but there’s also those who...

Marshawn Lynch
Per usual, the list of injured running backs is the longest out of all the positions that fantasy owners must deal with in Week 4. The big names in the early Sunday games are impressive enough, but that doesn’t mean those in the later games...

Andrew Luck
When the news broke on Wednesday that Andrew Luck wasn’t throwing in practice, fantasy owners got a little nervous, but the reports out of Indianapolis were that the Colts weren’t that concerned about the injury. He didn’t...

It’s that time of the week again. Time to dust of the magic crystal ball and peer into the future. Not for lottery numbers, but for amazing fantasy football predictions of course. Last week the crystal ball did me well. It predicted that...

So how did I do in dispensing sound fantasy advice when it comes to wide receivers and tight ends in Week 3?  Good Calls... Start Steve Smith (30.6 fantasy points) — He’s the only option on the Ravens and he just...

Let's take a quick recap of my start/sit running back fantasy advice from Week 3. Good Calls... Start Latavius Murray (20.9 fantasy points) — Murray broke out for a huge game against the Browns rushing for 139 yards...

I nailed it last week. In last week’s Start/Sit column for the quarterback position I suggested it would be a good idea to start Cam Newton, Carson Palmer and Ryan Tannehill and even take a flyer on Tyrod Taylor. I also thought...

As Week 4 is upon us in the NFL, it's time to look at the kicker rankings. With two teams on a bye, the kicker rankings don't change... all that much. For Stephen Gostkowski owners, if you do have room on your roster to carry two...

Surprising no one, the Seattle Seahawks DST was a great start in Week 3 against a Chicago Bears team that managed to put up zero points. The Seahawks are the top-rated DST again for Week 4, playing Detroit in Seattle. Matthew Stafford will turn the...

Aaron Rodgers
After throwing five touchdowns on "Monday Night Football" in Week 3, it should be no surprise that Aaron Rodgers is the No. 1-ranked quarterback for Week 4. With 10 touchdowns and no interceptions so far this season, he is in the running...
