With this being Week 7 it's hard to believe the college fantasy football season is more than halfway through. Hopefully your team is in good shape as you make your push towards a possible championship. Athlon has teamed up with...

Peyton Manning
Week 5 has come and gone and another devastating injury strikes the NFL (and fantasy), as it loses another of its biggest stars in Jamaal Charles. The season-ending torn ACL will open the door for Charcandrick West and Knile Davis, who...

Jamaal Charles
We had a slight lull in major injuries for Week 4, but on Sunday, a big-name running back went down, much to the dismay of his fantasy owners (not to mention himself and his team!). When Jamaal Charles hit the Arrowhead Stadium turf Sunday...

Jay Cutler
As we enter Week 5 of the NFL and fantasy seasons, we have more injuries to analyze. At least we didn’t lose another quarterback in Week 4, so be thankful for the little things. Actually the only quarterback on the injury report is Jay Cutler...

Randall Cobb
There are plenty of wide receivers on the Week 5 injury reports, which is not something fantasy owners want to see. The early-season carnage has been so bad that several teams have more than one wideout on the injury report. That is the...

Jeremy Hill
After a quarter of the NFL season has been played, some big-name fantasy running backs are already either struggling or not playing. It's tough drafting running backs early and watching as they just take up space on your bench and you are...

Even with four teams on bye in Week 5, there is no lack of injured running backs that fantasy owners have to deal with. The first crop can be found here, and below you can get the lowdown on those playing in the late game and a couple of other...

Four games into the NFL and fantasy seasons and the injury reports are littered with wide receivers. A few of these key wideouts (Brandin Cooks, Pierre Garcon) are listed as probable and put in a full practice at some point during the week. These...

With a quarter of the fantasy football season behind us, we can now look back, take stock from what we've learned, and look ahead with some knowledge. During the preseason, we just look at the players and teams with what we think we know. ...

Le'Veon Bell
What craziness is going to happen this week in the NFL? Every week there is someone, somewhere that has quite the game and makes a name for himself, only to seemingly disappear forever after that. In the fantasy world, we could care less about...

So how did the Week 4 fantasy advice pan out for the wide receivers and tight ends? Let’s take a quick look. Good Calls: Start Ted Ginn Jr. (13.8 FP) — Didn’t catch many balls, but two touchdowns sure helps. ...

So let’s take a quick recap of my start/sit fantasy running back advice from Week 4. Good Calls: Start Karlos Williams (13 fantasy points) — Not as productive as expected but he did catch a TD pass late to...

Welcome to this week’s start/sit fantasy advice for quarterbacks and defense/special teams (DST). But first I know you’re really interested to see how I did last week, so let’s take a look shall we. Good Calls: ...

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...

With four teams (Carolina, Miami, Minnesota, New York Jets) on a bye this week, some starting quarterbacks are not going to be available for fantasy owners. While the options are getting slimmer (thanks to all of the injuries to quarterbacks...

While the Seattle Seahawks have taken the No. 1 spot in the DST rankings for the past few weeks, they have officially been dethroned for Week 5. The Denver Broncos have quietly been putting together a great defensive season. While Denver's...

Unfortunately, it's not every week that your kicker is going to boot seven field goals (ahh Cairo Santos, thank you for that!). However, it is important to try to find a kicker that is part of a high-powered offense. You want a kicker...

Antonio Brown
 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....

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,...
