As we delve into the Week 7 injury report for fantasy-relevant running backs, the good news is that there seem to be more knowns than unknowns. Four teams on bye (Chicago, Cincinnati, Denver and Green Bay) also help keep the volume down. That said...

Week 7 is here, and the fantasy football injury report is still long. Not quite as long as Week 6, but there are still plenty of injuries to digest. The quarterbacks and tight ends are pretty straightforward this week, with two quarterbacks already...

So how accurate was my start/sit fantasy running back advice for Week 6? Unfortunately, it wasn’t a good week at all. Good Calls: Sit Alfred Morris (3.2 fantasy points) – Even with Matt Jones inactive, Morris couldn’t...

As we enter Week 7, some of the kickers aren't on the same teams they started the season or ended 2014 with. For example, Caleb Sturgis was a Dolphin last year; now, he is Philadelphia's kicker and the 16th-ranked option this...

Carson Palmer

Rob Gronkowski
Is this the week that Rob Gronkowski is no longer ranked as the No. 1 fantasy tight end? Yes it is! After three sub-par performances Gronkowski has been bumped from the top position. Doesn't mean he won't bounce back as only Gronk can, but...

Last week’s Patience or Panic post had some bigger and surprising names. Many of these names continued to flounder in Week 6. This is truly the midseason point for most fantasy leagues and it is the time to start making tough choices, or...
