It’s not how you start; it’s how you finish. The Atlanta Falcons, in their second year under head coach Dan Quinn have learned that the hard way. Last year, a surprise 6-3 start became a frustrating 8-8 ending. This team squandered a...

Denver cruised out of the starting blocks of this season to 4-0. Then the Broncos hit some bumps in the road in their quest to repeat as Super Bowl champions. They have dropped three of their last five games. More disconcerting is that two of their...

Thankfully, the weeks with six teams on bye are over for this fantasy season. Week 10 does have four teams on bye, but it seems like fantasy owners can breathe a little easier only benching players from the Oakland Raiders, Indianapolis Colts,...

The last of the big bye weeks are over with as we enter Week 11 of the fantasy football season. There are still teams that have yet to get a breather (four this week), but from here out the player pool will be larger than it has the past two weeks...

With last of the big bye weeks in the rear-view mirror and some other guys coming back from injury, the running back pool is deeper than it has been in several weeks for fantasy owners to dip into. But you still have to decide which RBs to start...

Several wide receivers and a few tight ends had monster games for their fantasy owners last week and there could be more coming in Week 10 with some elite targets returning from bye. There are a few guys who will sit out this week that will be...

If you still read this article to get my NFL picks on a week-to-week basis then I salute you. The logic is there with a lot of these selections, but of course the wins aren't. It's been an odd year with the Raiders as one of the biggest...

The Cleveland Browns are pretty much what most observers expected this season – the worst team in the NFL. When they traded down in the draft from No. 2 to No. 15, leaving the best quarterbacks for other teams, the message was clear. They...

David Johnson
There are some big-name running backs in great spots for Week 10 who could pay off handsomely for their fantasy owners. But none have a better matchup than David Johnson, who comes off of the bye week rested and gets another shot at San Francisco...

The tight end position might be the most frustrating off all for fantasy owners this season because you never know what you are going to get week-to-week. Of course, Rob Gronkowski is ranked No. 1, but it’s not out of the question that he...

Wide receiver mania is back for Week 10 of the fantasy football season. All of the big dawgs are back in action (with a few exceptions) and once again many have drawn dream matchups. Antonio Brown sits atop with another week of what is hopefully...

The big headline for Week 10 when it comes to the flex position in fantasy football is simply that David Johnson is back! This should bring joy throughout the fantasy realm... unless you are playing against him. It goes without saying, but...

Justin Tucker
Justin Tucker and Caleb Sturgis, both with eight games played, are in the top five in terms of fantasy points (depending on league scoring) among kickers. Tucker still has yet to miss a field goal or an extra point, and he is the top-ranked kicker...

San Francisco has scored more than 20 points four times so far this year, which is why the 49ers have been a popular target when it comes to choosing a defense/special teams (DST) option in fantasy. They have allowed opposing DSTs to score plenty...

Tom Brady
After a week off, Tom Brady is back as the No. 1 fantasy quarterback for Week 10. He faces Seattle, which is coming off of a short week, and the Seahawks have done a good job against QBs (fifth-fewest fantasy points allowed).   However,...

Even with six teams on bye liming the player pool for Week 9, there were still some big performances that left their mark from a fantasy standpoint, especially in the DFS realm. It all got started in a big way on Thursday night with Atlanta and...

Week 9 had a little bit of everything around the NFL, from blowouts of bad teams to surprising, last-second upsets from teams we weren’t quite sold on. More than anything, just about every division race saw some significant movement in the...

We are getting ever so close to the fantasy playoffs everyone. It is a nerve-wracking and exciting time of the season. I know my leagues are split 50/50 with top-tier teams and some underperforming dregs.   However, if you happen to be in...

With only four teams on a bye in Week 10, fantasy owners have survived the bloated bye weeks. However, don't forget that Buffalo, Detroit, Indianapolis and Oakland are on bye in Week 10. Thankfully, not many players suffered injuries in Week 9...
