Raise your hand if you thought that the Eagles, Ravens, Seahawks and Colts would all be 0-2 to start their season out. The winless club has some intriguing teams in it, but you know that some of them are going to bounce back. I'd also like to...

The New York Giants are not in panic mode yet. Let's just call this deep concern. The Giants have played pretty good football for about 56 minutes of both of their opening games. Its the last four minutes of the total of the fourth...

It is kind of hard to believe Week 3 is here already and sooner than later we will be looking at bye weeks! Each fantasy position has been hit hard with injuries this season but there are still plenty of wide receivers who are safe each and every...

Flex rankings should be your go-to fantasy football weapon when you have decisions for your flex position each week. There are plenty of cases where positional rankings will work just fine, but some times you have great matchups, multiple positions...

The tight end position has to be one of the hardest positions in fantasy football to rank. I mean who had Anthony Fasano as the third highest scoring tight end last week with 14.4 fantasy points? The truth is, you probably don’t even know...

The winds of change have bellowed through the fantasy running back rankings. Perennial top-10 running backs like Jeremy Hill and DeMarco Murray are falling fast, while newcomers such as Devonta Freeman and Dion Lewis enter the top 10 for the first...

By Week 3, we start to see trends with teams and kickers. For example, Pittsburgh went for the two-point conversion more than kicking the field goal (also, we've seen Josh Scobee struggle). More and more kickers are missing the extra point, so...

By Week 3, defenses that we thought were going to be strong (Miami and Green Bay, for example) have shown that they may not be as tough as we hoped. Defenses that we may not have thought would be near the top of the fantasy rankings (Denver) have...

Tom Brady has been on fire this season. Once his suspension was lifted, he made it his mission to show the league what he could do — with or without partially deflated footballs. The Brady Show should continue in Week 3 against Jacksonville....

This is the first installment of a new weekly post that will discuss fantasy football players that are giving their owners headaches and heartburn. This week will admittedly be a little shorter and will be heavier on the patience side.This is...

The New York Football Giants are 0-2 at the start of this 2015 season. They have not played a complete game yet this season. They have taken leads into the fourth quarters of both games, only to make mental and tactical errors, on the field (...

Two years ago, noted B-movie producer and Philadelphia Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie decided to go for the blockbuster, rather than the product with substance and staying power. He courted then-Oregon coach Chip Kelly, continuing to woo the head Duck...

With one game left to play in Week 2, we are starting to see more of what to expect from certain teams. The New York Giants, for example, have a hard time keeping a lead. The New England Patriots have a high-powered offense that is seemingly...

Every week it happens. Someone on your starting fantasy roster, maybe even the stud that you are expecting (and needing) to carry your team to victory, completely and utterly sucks. You can do all the fancy calculations you want. You can check...

So it's come to this. The Seahawks are 0-2 on the season so far and fans are not happy. They are placing the blame on Russell Wilson's girlfriend Ciara, because apparently she has something to do with the team's play. They...

Each week, it appears a big-name fantasy player goes down with a multi-week injury. Unfortunately for Cowboy fans, they have been the hardest hit so far this season. In Week 2, Tony Romo fractured his left clavicle in Week 2. The original timetable...

Last week the Indianapolis Colts didn't look like a Super Bowl-worthy team. Yes, it was just Week 1, but last week’s 27-14 loss in Buffalo exposed many, if not all, of the Colts’ most glaring weaknesses.  The offensive...

Julio Jones' hands are some amazing things. The Falcons receiver made an incredible catch over a defender in the game against the Giants. The scary part? Jones makes it look effortless. Jones knows how to rise up (no pun intended).

It's no secret Stephen A. Smith is not a fan of Jay Cutler, but the line has to be drawn somewhere, right? During the Bears game against the Cardinals, Cutler threw an interception and got injured trying to make the tackle. Peak...

Several elite wide receivers missed a fair amount of practice time leading into their Week 2 matchups. Are any of these important pass catchers in danger of not playing today or should you consider not starting them for your fantasy team? Get the...

If it’s possible this early in the season, there will be some desperation in the stadium Sunday when the Cowboys visit Philadelphia, thanks to the Eagles’ week-one belly-flop in Atlanta. You know the statistics by now. Fewer than 10% of...
