Welcome to this week’s start/sit fantasy advice for quarterbacks and defense/special teams (DST). But first I know you’re really interested to see how I did last week, so let’s take a look shall we. Good Calls: ...

While the Seattle Seahawks have taken the No. 1 spot in the DST rankings for the past few weeks, they have officially been dethroned for Week 5. The Denver Broncos have quietly been putting together a great defensive season. While Denver's...

Unfortunately, it's not every week that your kicker is going to boot seven field goals (ahh Cairo Santos, thank you for that!). However, it is important to try to find a kicker that is part of a high-powered offense. You want a kicker...

Antonio Brown
 Week 4 in fantasy football brought us more Devonta Freeman, Jeremy Hill's triumphant return, Arian Foster's season debut, and disappointing numbers from stud wide receivers Antonio Brown, Julio Jones and Odell Beckham Jr....

Odell Beckham Jr.
Last week left plenty to be desired by most of the top-tiered fantasy wide receivers. Antonio Brown without his starting quarterback looked pedestrian, Julio Jones wasn't needed in Atlanta, as Devonta Freeman opted to tear it up once again....

I think it’s safe to say that Le'Veon Bell is back and that he is going to be a permanent fixture in the top three of these fantasy running backs rankings for the foreseeable future. That’s even with Michael Vick as his...

Antonio Gates
So Rob Gronkowski is back this week and he takes his rightful place as the No. 1-ranked tight end. But the rest of the tight end rankings are really as clear as mud. Can you trust supposed studs like Travis Kelce or Greg Olsen on a week-to-week...

Devonta Freeman
It’s almost depressing to think that in a blink of an eye a quarter of the NFL season has come and gone. The good thing is that after four weeks of hard-fought action we are starting to see who the contenders and pretenders are on the...

I am back with another Patience or Panic post. I did not write one last week because the players I mentioned in my initial post carried over into Week 4. Last week I recommended cutting bait with Andre Johnson and Week 4 only validated the...

The NFL is back, and the competition off the field is nearly as heated as the competition on game day. The Athlon Sports Pro Football Experts Club presented by New Era gives you the chance to compete with your friends and...

​Week 4 left fantasy owners with an encore performance from Devonta Freeman forcing himself into the front of the running back herd in literally two weeks. This week we start with a bang. There is a DFS scandal (If you want to call it that),...

Joe Philbin
After three and half seasons and a career record of 24-28, the Miami Dolphins finally decided to fire head coach Joe Philbin on Monday morning. The team entered the 2015 season with high expectations, as the team re-signed quarterback Ryan...

Peyton Manning
Another week in the NFL has come and gone and as usual there were some pleasant surprises and of course, some guys who you were banking on carrying your fantasy team to glory this week, that instead completely sucked and crushed any hope you had of...

Mike Tomlin
After Baltimore's 23-20 come-from-behind, overtime victory Thursday night against Pittsburgh, is it time to consider the future of Mike Tomlin as the Steelers' head coach? On first glance, such a statement would seem to be...

The Seattle Seahawks will be looking to get back to the .500 mark on Monday night as they will take on the Detroit Lions in another must-win game for both teams. Detroit won the last meeting in the regular season between these two back on Oct....

Ndamukong Suh has a reputation that precedes him. The Dolphins defensive tackle has his fair share of "dirty plays," but should this kick to Ryan Fitzpatrick count as one of those? It's obvious Suh kicks him in the head, but...

Welcome to Week 4, where more big-name fantasy quarterbacks are finding their way onto the injury report. First, we lost Tony Romo. Next, Drew Brees and Jay Cutler did not play in Week 3. Then Ben Roethlisberger went down in Week 3 and it will be a...

Drew Brees
Both Dallas and New Orleans limp into this prime-time clash after a loss to a member of the NFC South. The difference is the current record of each team. Atlanta's victory in Jerry World was the first loss of the season for head coach Jason...

The Minnesota Vikings (2-1) enter Week 4 coming off back-to-back wins against the Detroit Lions and San Diego Chargers. The Vikings have gotten two consecutive standout performances by Adrian Peterson, whose looked like a former MVP, despite coming...

The Green Bay offensive juggernaut rolls west Sunday to see if it can continue to bedevil opposing defenses. Despite a spate of injuries that has claimed starters at wideout and right tackle, the Pack has kept piling up the points, thanks in large...

The undefeated Arizona Cardinals (3-0) welcome their divisional rival St. Louis Rams (1-2) Sunday in a game featuring two of the best defenses in the league. With the return of Carson Palmer, the Cardinals have looked like the best team in the NFC...

As we head into Week 4, it's another week with a full injury report for fantasy owners to digest. Two teams (Patriots, Titans) are on bye, so that's a week for players on those teams to heal. However, plenty of other players are on the...

Arian Foster
As has been the case this season, the fantasy owners need to pay particular attention to the lengthy list of injured running backs. There’s some good news with the potential return of some key ball carriers, but there’s also those who...

Marshawn Lynch
Per usual, the list of injured running backs is the longest out of all the positions that fantasy owners must deal with in Week 4. The big names in the early Sunday games are impressive enough, but that doesn’t mean those in the later games...

The Raiders head into Solider Field Sunday trailing the all-time series between the two teams 7-6. The Bears won their last meeting in Oakland 25-20 back in 2011. The setting for this game is much different than their last meeting. The Raiders...
