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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

Antonio Brown is flashy in so many ways.  The important thing to remember about the Steelers wide receiver is that he also gets the job done. Brown catches a pass against the Browns and takes it to the house, but not without a little...

While there are a lot of running backs on the fantasy injury report for Week 10, many were able to put in a full practice and are listed as probable. Guys you don't have to worry about (at least for injury purposes) include: DeMarco Murray,...
