I started slow in the NFL just to get an early grasp on what went down in week one. The league had itself a crazy week one with various injuries and finishes that left fans wondering what just happened. That said, it's Week 2 and we have a...

As we look to Week 2, it's important to know which players suffered injuries in Week 1. If their playing status is in doubt, you'll need to make sure you have replacements in your lineup. Hopefully your bench is deep enough to fill the void...

Don’t try to tell anybody associated with the Chiefs or Broncos that their Thursday night game is not so meaningful, just because this is the second week of the NFL regular season. In an AFC West that looks to be as competitive as...

While kickers still are underrated in terms of fantasy football, just note that most of the guys on this list scored more fantasy points than Calvin Johnson or Adrian Peterson last week. Sure, that's not going to be the case every week,...

Thankfully the tight end position missed the injury bug that stung the wide receivers in Week 1, so all the big names are ready to go for your fantasy team in Week 2. Last week Rob Gronkowski proved that once again he is head and shoulders...

Julio Jones
Julio Jones was going to be my favorite fantasy wide receiver for Week 2, but with the hamstring news that broke on Wednesday I am worried enough to knock him down the rankings a bit. That leaves the top spot open for Antonio Brown once...

Holy cow what a week to kick off the NFL season and bring us to the Week 2 waiver wire. A rookie quarterback made a big splash, tight ends ruled the day/week, and of course there were injuries. Simply swapping bench players for waiver adds is just...

Some people predicted the Miami Dolphins could be one of the biggest surprises in the NFL in 2015. If Sunday was any indication of how this season is going to go, then the Dolphins look like the same team fans have seen the last three years....

This is peak Cleveland Browns. In the game against the Jets, Josh McCown saw an opening and went for it. In retrospect, this is probably one he wants back because he got lit up like a Christmas tree and had to leave the game. Oh and he...
