At this point in the season, fantasy football teams are gearing up for playoff runs. It's also around this time that most teams’ running back situations are a complete mess. Between bye weeks and key injuries to players such as C.J....

By Week 9 of the fantasy football season, there are sure to be some disappointments in your lineup. Wide receivers and tight ends such as Allen Robinson, DeAndre Hopkins and Zach Ertz simply haven't been producing like fantasy owners expected...

Two awful beats and we're back to an 0-3 week in the NFL. Who knew Jacksonville's defense was going to give up on Thursday and that the Eagles would blow a 10-point fourth quarter lead? It just shows the odd nature of the sport in which...

Through eight weeks, Adam Vinatieri is still the No. 1 kicker in terms of fantasy points (depending on league scoring). Facing the Green Bay Packers in Week 9, he should have plenty of opportunities to add to that total. He's made five field...

After some lackluster fantasy performances from the so-called top defense/special teams (DST) units in the league in Week 8, the Kansas City Chiefs have claimed the top spot for Week 9. The Chiefs have an interception in each of their past three...

Aaron Rodgers
Aaron Rodgers finished Week 8 with the second-most fantasy points among quarterbacks (Derek Carr and his 513 yards, 4 TDs led the way). Rodgers has thrown seven touchdown passes over the past two weeks. This Sunday, he faces Indianapolis, which has...

Week 8 for fantasy football owners brought more of the same from the running back position – injuries. Jamaal Charles went on injured reserve and Spencer Ware is in the concussion protocol, so it’s your turn Charcandrick West. Also...

Greg Olsen
The whole tight end position has been a disaster this season for fantasy owners. Other than Rob Gronkowski (and it took him a few weeks to get up to speed), it has been really hard to rely on any specific tight end.   Last week Jimmy...

With Week 9 of the fantasy season upon us we have officially reached the halfway point of the regular season. The halfway point of the fantasy season is already in the rear-view mirror, so owners who may be clinging to hopes of a playoff berth...

For the Week 9 fantasy wide receiver rankings, Odell Beckham Jr. returns from his bye week to lead the way in what looks like a dream matchup, at least on paper. Antonio Brown may overtake if ODB if, and it is a big if, Ben Roethlisberger returns...

The NFL season hits the midway point this week, 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...

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers (3-4) entered Week 8 riding a two-game winning streak, trailing Atlanta by just a half game in the NFC South. The Buccaneers were unable to capitalize, losing 30-24 in overtime to the Raiders at home.   Conversely...

The halfway point of the 2016 NFL regular season has six teams on bye, including New England. The Patriots (7-1) have the best record in the league right now with Dallas (6-1) just a game back in the win column because the Cowboys have...

Week 8 was an explosion of chalk plays that actually ending up destroying many daily fantasy football lineups. So many players who were in dream matchups and cost a pretty penny completely collapsed. Julio Jones, Mike Evans, Spencer Ware (left...

After nearly a month of hearing about what’s wrong with the NFL, the league apparently decided to do something about all that criticism and turn in one of the most entertaining weeks of the season. While the primetime matchups may not have...

This is getting sad and has become an all-too familiar refrain for fantasy owners of these players. But the disappearing acts by Allen Robinson, DeAndre Hopkins to name a few continued for yet another week. And these so-called fantasy studs aren...

Even with six teams on a bye in Week 9, the waiver wire report for fantasy owners looking for replacements or a boost at a particular position is slim. Without major injuries, backup players aren't must-owns. Some of the players on this list...

On paper, this looks like a Monday night mismatch. The Minnesota Vikings and the NFL’s best defense invade Soldier Field tied for the best record in the NFC. The host Chicago Bears are tied for the NFC’s worst record and are already...

It’s been a few weeks since a primetime matchup has truly deserved a lot of hype in the NFL but the upcoming “Sunday Night Football” game has changed that equation in a big way by pitting two of the biggest surprises in the NFC...

The 4-3 Atlanta Falcons seemed to have everything going their way early in the season. They started out 4-1, had a pair of signature wins (vs. Carolina, at Denver) under their belt and were in complete control of the NFC South. Despite continued...

There are so many wide receivers listed as Questionable on the Week 8 injury report that the list had to be split into two parts to make it easier for fantasy owners to digest. Part one covered all those in the early games. Here is the second group...

While Dwayne Allen is the only tight end that has already been ruled out for Week 8 (Jack Doyle owners rejoice!), five other fantasy-relevant ones are questionable. Owners of these will need to be sure to check the inactive listings before game...
