Dez Bryant
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...

The best team in the National Football League so far this season heads to one of the hottest on Sunday as an AFC East battle takes center stage between a pair of familiar rivals. New England has been on a tear ever since getting Tom Brady back at...

Seattle travels to New Orleans to face the Saints in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome for the first time since 2010. If someone had not watched the Seahawks' previous game but only saw the final score, bewildered reactions must certainly have...

Redskins, Bengals, you can’t hop on a plane soon enough. The NFL’s flirtation with London hasn’t exactly brought Super Bowl-contending teams overseas this season, perhaps another reason, in a long list of them, for the decline in...

With six teams on a bye this week (Baltimore, Los Angeles, Miami, New York Giants, Pittsburgh, San Francisco), fantasy owners will likely be digging a little deeper to fill out their lineups. Trying to figure out who to start and who to sit...

Week 8 is going to be a tough one for fantasy owners when it comes to determining which wide receivers and tight ends you are going to roll with. Even with Ben Roethlisberger’s injury, you would rather have Antonio Brown in your lineup than...

It’s Week 8 of the fantasy football season and with six teams on bye at least you know which quarterbacks and defense/special teams you won’t be starting. Then again with Ben Roethlisberger injured, the list of healthy QBs from teams on...

So in Week 8 of the fantasy football season and the running back that owners will miss the most is... Jay Ajayi? OK, Le’Veon Bell is pretty good too and Todd Gurley can be, but that’s how kind of how this season has gone as Ajayi...

It was a good week for my NFL picks, as I swept the trio of selections I handed out. If you are still alive in your survival pool, then I applaud you considering the Vikings and Falcons were probably some popular choices that would have eliminated...

Stephen Gostkowski has been the top-ranked fantasy kicker for weeks; however, he has disappointed fantasy owners. Depending on league scoring, Gostkowski isn't even in the top 15 in terms of fantasy points at his position (and he hasn't had...

In all likelihood, the Minnesota Vikings defense/special teams is likely the top-scoring fantasy DST in your league, and that’s even with the team already having its bye week. Whether it’s No. 1 or near the top, the important thing for...

Depending on league scoring, Matt Ryan has the most fantasy points out of all quarterbacks. He faces the Green Bay Packers in Week 8, whose secondary is so decimated Ryan and Julio Jones should have a field day. But even with this appealing matchup...

Ranking running backs week in and week out for fantasy purposes sure is a daunting task. Look at last week. First LeSean McCoy was going to miss a couple of weeks, then he was out for one week, then he was a game-time decision and ended up...

The tight end position this year is a terrible mess, much to the chagrin of fantasy owners. It even took Rob Gronkowski a month (and for Tom Brady to return) to get going. Gronk aside, there’s just no telling who is going to a top-five...

It is hard to believe that the fantasy football season is more than halfway over. For many teams hovering around .500 or worse this could truly be the do-or-die week. Plenty of big-name players are on bye this week at WR, namely Antonio Brown,...

There are six teams on bye in Week 8, which means there are plenty of big, big shoes to fill when it comes to the all-important flex position in your fantasy lineup. At wide receiver alone, there is no Antonio Brown or Odell Beckham Jr. at their...

The Tennessee Titans enter Week 8 at 3-4 following a tough 34-26 home loss to Indianapolis. It was the Titans’ 10th consecutive loss to their AFC South rivals and also snapped Tennessee’s first winning streak I tenth consecutive loss...

We have yet to reach the halfway point of the NFL regular season and there are no undefeated teams remaining. The 1972 Miami Dolphins can rest easy for another season following Minnesota's 21-10 loss to Philadelphia on Sunday.   The...

Week 7 was a rather frustrating week for many daily fantasy football players, me included. I was among those who put together lineups that posted fantasy scores, which would have dominated any other week. Unfortunately, unless you scored 170-plus...

From London to the West Coast, it wasn’t exactly a banner week of great football in the NFL. Still, there were a few surprising wins and a handful of disappointing losses to cause a little shuffling in the pecking order among teams....

The disappearing acts from expected fantasy studs like Alshon Jeffery, Allen Robinson and DeAndre Hopkins continued in Week 7. This has been a terrible season for unfortunate fantasy owners who have seen their high draft picks consistently fail...

As fantasy football owners look ahead to Week 8, many owners will need to use the waiver wire to fill in gaps in their roster. Six teams are on bye: Baltimore Ravens, Los Angeles Rams, New York Giants, Miami Dolphins, Pittsburgh Steelers and the...
