Let's take a quick recap of my start/sit running back fantasy advice from Week 3. Good Calls... Start Latavius Murray (20.9 fantasy points) — Murray broke out for a huge game against the Browns rushing for 139 yards...

I nailed it last week. In last week’s Start/Sit column for the quarterback position I suggested it would be a good idea to start Cam Newton, Carson Palmer and Ryan Tannehill and even take a flyer on Tyrod Taylor. I also thought...

Bye weeks have begun in the NFL although it's just the Titans and Patriots for Week 4. The cream has risen to the top with the Packers, Cardinals and Patriots separating themselves from the pack. Meanwhile the winless club lost a few members in...

It seems as if every game the Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens play this season is "must win." Granted, nobody is getting mathematically eliminated from a playoff berth after this game, but the Ravens simply cannot begin 0-4...

As Week 4 is upon us in the NFL, it's time to look at the kicker rankings. With two teams on a bye, the kicker rankings don't change... all that much. For Stephen Gostkowski owners, if you do have room on your roster to carry two...

Surprising no one, the Seattle Seahawks DST was a great start in Week 3 against a Chicago Bears team that managed to put up zero points. The Seahawks are the top-rated DST again for Week 4, playing Detroit in Seattle. Matthew Stafford will turn the...

Aaron Rodgers
After throwing five touchdowns on "Monday Night Football" in Week 3, it should be no surprise that Aaron Rodgers is the No. 1-ranked quarterback for Week 4. With 10 touchdowns and no interceptions so far this season, he is in the running...

Week 4 is upon us and your AthlonSports.com fantasy team is back with the weekly positional rankings. As with every week these will likely be tweaked as the week goes on with injury updates and what not. These rankings should be able to...

Flex rankings are here for Week 4, and should be your best weapon for deciding who to plug in to your flex positions for the upcoming fantasy week. With bye weeks starting this week and a game in London very early on Sunday some decisions will need...

Marshawn Lynch
One trend that appears to be taking shape this fantasy season is that you cannot count on supposed stud running backs each week. First or early second-round picks like Marshawn Lynch, Jeremy Hill, C.J. Anderson and DeMarco Murray have been severely...

Rob Gronkowski
Trying to predict what tight ends will do on a week-to-week basis in fantasy is much like playing the lottery. You are bound to get at least one number right (like ranking Rob Gronkowski as the No. 1 TE every week), but a lot of...

Ben Roethlisberger
Another week, another injured quarterback that fantasy owners must deal with. It's been tough on quarterbacks this season: Tony Romo, Drew Brees, Jay Cutler, and now Ben Roethlisberger has been added to the injured list. While it first seemed...

Even the biggest Cleveland fan had to feel some sympathy Sunday when Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger was carted off the field in the third quarter of Sunday’s Pittsburgh win over the Rams in St. Louis. Roethlisberger went down with a...

The big news out of Week 3 was the injury to Ben Roethlisberger. While many fantasy owners were afraid it was a season-ending ACL injury, the news came out that it was "just" a bone bruise and MCL injury. These injuries will still...

If you had any of these guys on your fantasy roster this past week, I sure do feel sorry for you. A couple of these guys were surefire first-round picks in your fantasy draft and have been duds all year, not just this week. Is it time to start...

The 49ers lost to the Cardinals 47-7, but that's only the tip of the iceberg. Colin Kaepernick probably had the worst game of all, throwing a career-worst four interceptions. After the game, that fact was hard to ignore. Carlos Hyde told...

The NFL can’t think of a better way to prime the pump for Super Bowl 50 than to feature the participants in the first-ever super showdown. But pitting Green Bay and Kansas City against each other is more than just an exercise in nostalgia....

Sometimes you watch the Jets, and there are literally no words.  During the game against the Eagles, Brandon Marshall tried to lateral on a first down for some odd reason and of course turned the ball over. Marshall picked up 15 yards,...

Burn baby, burn. This isn't a disco inferno. The Steelers-Rams game was delayed thanks to a pyrotechnic mishap. As the Rams took the field, part of it caught on fire from the famous fireworks they let off before each game.  In...

Its must-win Sunday for the Seattle Seahawks and the Chicago Bears as both teams are off to 0-2 starts. The Seahawks had a 17-16 lead in the fourth quarter at Lambeau Field last Sunday against Green Bay, but they just could not slow down Aaron...
