After three weeks without Tom Brady, New England already holds a two-game lead in the AFC East. If they can beat Buffalo on Sunday and get some help elsewhere, the Patriots could stretch that lead to three over the rest of the division —...

Set your alarm clocks, folks. In an effort to expand NFL dominance to a global level, The Shield is giving its American fans a wake-up call. An 9:30 a.m. (ET) one to be exact.   This year’s NFL International Series Game, the 10th...

By Week 4, fantasy owners already have to plan for the bye weeks. With Philadelphia and Green Bay off this week, some owners do need to find some replacements in their starting roster. When looking at the waiver wire or setting a starting lineup,...

Week 4 means the start of bye weeks, so a new element is introduced into those pesky fantasy-related start/sit decisions. This week, it’s Green Bay and Philadelphia, so on the quarterback and defense/special teams front that means no Aaron...

Week 4 means the welcome return of a familiar face to the running back scene, but also the first time fantasy owners must navigate those pesky bye weeks. Before I get to my start/sit advice in the backfield, let’s see how I did in Week 3....

Between the start of bye weeks and all the injuries that keep coming, figuring out which wide receivers and tight ends to start in Week 4 could be a trickier proposition than usual for fantasy owners. But before I offer my start/sit advice fort...

It’s Week 4 of the NFL season and believe it or not, bye weeks also play a role when it comes to Vegas odds, lines, spreads and such. This week it’s Green Bay and Philadelphia getting a breather and the chance to relish their latest...

Le'Veon Bell
It’s Week 4 of the fantasy football season and it’s time to welcome back a familiar face or two to the running back rankings. Le’Veon Bell’s three-game suspension is done with, so this is the week those who took him with a...

It’s Week 4 and fantasy owners that drafted Rob Gronkowski in the first round are hoping this might finally be the week the No. 1 tight end finally starts producing like one. His matchup Sunday at home against the Bills is appealing, but...

Justin Tucker
Week 4 of the fantasy football season is here and a new kicker is ranked No. 1. After nailing a field goal from beyond 50 yards in each of the first three games, Justin Tucker finds himself tied with Dustin Hopkins for the most fantasy points (...

The Denver Broncos have not allowed more than 20 points yet this season, which already makes them a good choice for the top fantasy defense/special teams on any given week, let alone Week 4. When you add in that Tampa Bay struggled against a tough...

Cam Newton
Cam Newton struggled in Week 3, but the outlook is promising for a bounce back in Week 4, which is why he is the No. 1 fantasy quarterback option. Minnesota pummeled and harassed Newton all afternoon last week, but on Sunday Newton gets to face...

Week 4 of the fantasy football season has arrived and while at first glance it looked like Week 3 didn’t bring any more significant injuries, apparently that is not the case on the wide receiver front. Tuesday alone brought news of a...

With so many fantasy-relevant players, particularly running backs and wide receivers, getting hurt flex rankings are becoming more and more useful. And now besides dealing with guys who are questionable (or worse), bye weeks enter into the...

It hasn’t been a great start to the 2016 season for the Miami Dolphins. After losing their first two games on the road to the Seattle Seahawks and the New England Patriots, the Dolphins barely squeaked out a 30-24 victory over the Cleveland...

Three weeks into the NFL season and there are five undefeated teams remaining. Defending Super Bowl champion Denver and New England, even without the services of quarterback Tom Brady, aren’t that big of surprises. The same can’t be...

By Week 4, fantasy owners have a sense of who will help their team and who is just taking up space at the end of their bench. Week 4 also is the first of the bye weeks, with Philadelphia and Green Bay not playing. As the bye weeks start, fantasy...

The NFL is in full swing, and the competition off the field among fans is nearly as heated as the competition on the field on game day.   The Athlon Sports Pro Football Experts Club presented by New Era gives you the...

Three straight weeks the No. 1 team in the Athlon Sports NFL Power Rankings has lost, which is giving the Sports Illustrated cover jinx a run for its money. Of course it’s early in the season and teams are still figuring themselves out as...

Week 3 is complete and it is officially time to be hitting the panic button in your seasonal fantasy leagues. To be honest, I could have written this post last week with all of the injuries, and slow starts. However the other aspect of this post...

Thankfully for fantasy owners, Week 3 was not nearly the injury bloodbath that Week 2 was. With the games going fairly close to as predicted, fantasy experts could breathe a little sigh of relief. Sure, there were some disappointments (Carson...

This decade-old rivalry will be renewed just as it was 10 years ago: in the third game of the season, in the Superdome and on “Monday Night Football.” It also marked the formal return of the Saints to New Orleans after the devastation...

This kind of matchup is probably not what NBC had in mind when they were going through the early NFL schedule and saw this one penciled in for “Sunday Night Football.” While the game involves two big markets and historically...
