Three short weeks ago, it appeared as if Green Bay was headed for a Super Bowl collision with New England. The mighty Packers were stout on defense and were receiving tremendous performances from QB Aaron Rodgers. Sunday, the Pack staggers into...

The upstart Kansas City Chiefs head to San Diego to take on the Chargers this Sunday in an AFC West contest that could put the Chiefs into the wild card conversation in the conference. Kansas City (4-5) is coming off a big win in...

Welcome to the Week 11 running back injury report. With four teams on a bye (Pittsburgh, New York Giants, Cleveland and New Orleans), the list is shorter than weeks past, but some big names have made the list. Also, keep in mind that running backs...

Antonio Gates (will he play?)
The Week 11 quarterback injury report is short and easy: four quarterbacks and all are ruled out. Ryan Fitzpatrick, Teddy Bridgewater and Aaron Rodgers are both on the injury report as probable, but both practiced in full and are on track to play....

A month ago, had you said the Chicago Bears would have won two games in a row and could make it three against the then-undefeated Denver Broncos, you would've been laughed out of whatever establishment you found yourself in. ...

After being away from home for nearly a month, the Miami Dolphins (4-5) return to Sun Life Stadium to play the Dallas Cowboys (2-7) on Sunday. Trailing 16-3 after the first quarter in their last game against Philadelphia, the Dolphins...

The Atlanta Falcons (6-3) are hoping that a much-needed bye week will be the key to getting their season back on track. After a 5-0 start, Atlanta’s high-octane offense suddenly hit a wall, resulting in losses in three of its past ...

As we enter the last week of the NFL and fantasy season with any teams on bye (Cleveland Browns, New York Giants, New Orleans Saints and Pittsburgh Steelers), we look at players who have tough matchups in Week 11. Some guys have higher upside this...

It’s Week 11 of the NFL season, also known as the last week with any teams on bye. Fantasy-wise this means this is the last week owners should have to worry about anything other than injuries (and there are a LOT) preventing them from...

Julian Edelman went down with a broken foot and several top fantasy wide receivers and tight ends are on bye in Week 11. So who should you start and who should you sit? Before we get to that, let’s see how some of my advice for Week 10 turned...

No DeAngelo Williams or Mark Ingram in Week 11, so which fantasy running back do you want to start and which should you consider leaving on your bench? Before I address that, here’s a quick look at some good and not-so-good calls in Week 10....

It’s Week 11 and time for another installment of which fantasy quarterback and defense/special teams (DSTs) you should start or sit. But first, I know you are really interested to see how I did in Week 10. Good Calls: Start Eli...

Tennessee interim head coach Mike Mularkey leads his 2-7 Titans to the place where his last head coaching venture ended, Jacksonville. Things started out well enough for the Titans in 2015, starting with the 42-14 stomping of the Tampa Bay...

The fickle nature of the NFL was illustrated this past weekend. If you woke up from a coma, you'd think Peyton Manning was the worst, Kirk Cousins was the best and Andy Dalton wasn't clutch. While that last one may be true, the first two...

Week 11 is upon us and with it are some big-time fantasy wide receivers that are on bye. Antonio Brown, Odell Beckham Jr., and even the red-hot Brandin Cooks are all off this week. There are still plenty of great options for Week 11, but...

Despite letting the Arizona Cardinals put up 39 points last week the Seattle Seahawks still finished seventh in fantasy points (standard scoring) among defense/special teams (DSTs) for Week 10. This week, the Seahawks host the San Francisco...

Welcome to Week 11, the last week with any teams on a bye for the 2015 fantasy season. In this week, we get an outpouring of backup quarterbacks to join the ranks with Andrew Luck and Peyton Manning already ruled out for Week 11. In addition, Sam...

As the fantasy regular season winds down these final weeks can be truly detrimental to your playoff hopes. It may be the worst possible time to be without Antonio Brown, Ben Roethlisberger, Odell Beckham Jr., Drew Brees or Brandin Cooks,...

Pittsburgh is one of the four teams on bye in Week 11, so DeAngelo Williams can't be the No. 1-ranked fantasy running back. Then again after last week's disappointing showing (69 total yards), he might not have been in the first place....

Ranking tight ends for fantasy purposes isn't as easy as one may think. Slotting Rob Gronkowski in the top spot every week (except when he was on bye), is what makes the most sense, but that doesn't mean Gronk is going to...

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...

Week 10 was rather unexceptional fantasy-wise, as aside from the Andrew Luck injury announcement there were no real surprises. At this point in the season your bench should have hand-cuffs, and upside players. There’s also the trade route to...

Agents are a gift and a curse. During Sunday night's game between the Cardinals and the Seahawks, evidently Marshawn Lynch's agent wasn't happy with some aspects of Russell Wilson's performance. He sent a tweet (and...

The Bears are finally starting to turn things around. Chicago throttled the Rams Sunday, 37-13. After the game, Martellus Bennett felt it was the right time to tell everyone what he thinks of the team from St. Louis.  "I...

During the moment of silence before the Lions-Packers game kicked off, an inappropriate comment was yelled throughout the crowd. Someone could be heard saying, "Muslims suck!" and that comment didn't sit too well with Packers...
