For most fantasy leagues, Week 14 is the first week of the playoffs. For others, it's the last week of the regular season. Either way, fantasy owners need a win. While, for the most part, the best advice is to stick with the guys that have led...

For most fantasy leagues, Week 14 means the start of the playoffs. That means who you start and who you sit becomes even more important, as it could be the difference between winning that elusive championship and coming up just short.  ...

Week 13 saw some pretty big fantasy performances from some expected and unexpected running backs. Some I saw some coming, some I did not. Hopefully, my start/sit advice for Week 14 will pan out for you since it’s playoffs time for most...

Several highly drafted wide receivers and tight ends put forth some disappointing fantasy performances in Week 13. Hopefully you were able to survive these, but the stakes are much higher now with Week 14 ushering in the fantasy playoffs for most...

Week 13 of the fantasy football season did not go well for many, including myself, especially in daily leagues and contests. Most of the damage was done by quarterbacks, as my top play (Drew Brees) failed miserably in what near-perfect matchup....

Amazingly enough, in an NFL season where kickers are struggling week after week, Baltimore’s Justin Tucker remains perfect and he’s been a valuable asset for his fantasy owners. He has still yet to miss a field goal or extra point this...

Week 13 was a tough week for quarterbacks, and by extension their fantasy owners, and Week 14 may be just as difficult. Drew Brees is not at home (although that didn't seem to help in Week 13). Tom Brady has struggled (so to speak) with Rob...

It’s Week 14 of the fantasy season and there’s a familiar sight at the top of the running back rankings. By now it should come as no surprise that David Johnson, Le’Veon Bell and Ezekiel Elliot are the top three (in some order...

At first glance it might appear that the Week 14 fantasy tight end rankings haven’t changed much from last week. Especially at the top where once again with no Rob Gronkowski in the running, Jimmy Graham and Travis Kelce take the No. 1 and...
