The AFC East title is already all but out of reach for Buffalo and the Jets as they convene in north Jersey — those Patriots look pretty good — but thanks to the NFL’s muddled middle of the road, a win by either team Thursday...

I hope by now the reader of this article has realized the best team doesn't always win in the NFL and some spreads are odd for a reason. Denver's loss in Indianapolis after a huge win at home over Green Bay was a head scratcher, but...

Another week and yet again, Stephen Gostkowski is atop the fantasy kicker rankings. If we've learned nothing this season, we've learned that you cannot predict a kicker's performance. In Week 9, 11 kickers had more fantasy points than...

It's hard to not rank Denver as the No. 1 fantasy Defense/Special Teams (DST). While the Broncos did lose to Indianapolis in Week 9, they still were able to finish in the top 10 of fantasy points (depending on league scoring) last week....

Tom Brady
While Tom Brady had his worst game statistically of the year in Week 9, he should bounce back against the Giants in Week 10. He is still the No. 1 fantasy quarterback in terms of fantasy points on the year, and when his worst game...

At the start of the season if someone bet you $100 that at some point DeAngelo Williams would be the No. 1 ranked fantasy running back, you’d probably ask that person to repeat themselves and then have a good laugh at their expense. Well...

Rob Gronkowski
Is there a more fickle and inconsistent fantasy position to rank than the tight end position? Rob Gronkowski was the No. 1-ranked tight end last week and was a complete dud. Of course he’s No. 1 again this week because he...

Injuries, questionable statuses and a thinning herd of elite fantasy running backs leaves the Flex rankings looking different for Week 10. Expect plenty of things to change in the days ahead, as the health and playing statuses of running backs like...

In fantasy, just like the NFL, injuries to one position can have a ripple effect with another. That's the case in Week 10, as some injuries to some top-tier quarterbacks Andrew Luck and Ben Roethlisberger have impacted the outlook and...

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...

Aside from the Dion Lewis injury there were no earth-shattering fantasy performances in Week 9 from waiver wire players. There are still some targets you can pursue as flyers, but this week it looks as if we are talking bench stash players, or...

While Week 9 wasn't quite as injury filled as Week 8, it still was tough for fantasy owners. Ben Roethlisberger went down (again), although he did put in almost a full game for his owners before leaving. Dion Lewis tore his ACL and is done for...

It's hard rooting for the away team during a football game. It's even harder when the star quarterback for the home team has a problem with your sign.  During warm-ups of Packers-Panthers game, Cam Newton spotted a fan's...

The last time the Bears and Chargers faced off in San Diego, was 2007 when former Chicago quarterback Rex Grossman led the visiting team to a 14-3 victory. That also was when LaDainian Tomlinson was in his prime as one of the NFL’s best...

It's weird when the Packers are out of wack, but it happens. During the Packers-Panthers game, Cam Newton and his team got ahead early and the effect of that made its way to the Packers' sideline. A few cheese heads,...

There was a scary scene out of Minnesota Sunday. During the Rams-Vikings game, Teddy Bridgewater began to scramble and ended up sliding to avoid a hit on the play. As he was going to the ground, Rams safety Lamarcus Joyner came rambling in and...

For some reason, people just don't like Cam Newton. Maybe it's because the Panthers are on a roll right now, or maybe it's because he's always smiling. Whatever the reason is, Julius Peppers isn't here for any of...

Sunday night's game between the Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys is a must-win... for both teams. Dallas limps into this important NFC East contest on a five-game losing streak. The Cowboys are drowning in a big way, and...

“The Desperate Real Front Office Employees of Indianapolis” probably doesn't have the sexiness necessary to be a hit reality TV show, but it certainly isn't lacking for any senseless drama. Since training camp, rumblings...

The New York Giants sit atop the NFC East, but still enter a must-win situation as they prepare to take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The road going forward is a challenging one and getting things back on the winning track after a tough loss to the...

With six teams on bye, the thought would be the fantasy injury report for running backs would be shorter for Week 9, right? However, that is not the case, as Week 8 was brutal for injuries, leaving fantasy owners with plenty of names to pay...

While not many quarterbacks are on the Week 9 fantasy injury report, there are plenty of tight ends (below), as well running backs and wide receivers. Be sure to check the actives when they are released about 90 minutes before game time to ensure...

As has been the case for several weeks now, the fantasy wide receiver injury report is too long to fit into one article, and Week 9 is no exception in that respect. While the early game names to know are covered here, there are plenty of key...

Week 8 was brutal in terms of injuries, so that leads to a long fantasy injury report for Week 9. Check out the quarterbacks and tight ends as well as the running backs, but the wide receiver list is so long, it needed to be broken up into two...

Don't look now but the St. Louis Rams (4-3) are in second place in the NFC West. The Rams have won three of their last four games and are 3-0 against division opponents. Minnesota (5-2) also is in second place in the NFC North. The Vikings...
